With the White House and its supporters in denial over the existential threat that Islamic jihadists pose to Americans at home and abroad, Brigitte Gabriel, the Founder and President of Act for America, calls the 2016 election an “election about survival.”
Just as world leaders united after the Charlie Hebdo attack, Americans need to be united against this jihadist threat, boldly speaking out and confronting evil.
Act for America is providing just such an opportunity this September, empowering citizens from across the country to let their voices be heard on Capitol Hill.
National Security Conference
Gabriel announced that, “Act for America is holding our annual National Security Conference in Washington, D.C., the week of September 11th. We thought, what better time to hold a national security conference than the week of September 11th, in Washington, D.C., reminding our elected officials what’s at stake and why we need to secure the country.”
She pointed out that, despite differences on various political issues, we must stand united against the savages who seek our destruction. Those who have died at the hands of Islamists bent upon creating a global caliphate can do nothing. Those of us who are still alive live to fight both in their memory and for our own lives and liberty.
In Gabriel’s words:
“I don’t see any of the dead 3,000 Americans that died on September 11th, 2001 demonstrating right now for either pro-Obamacare or anti-Obamacare, pro-gay or anti-gay, pro-abortion or anti-abortion. They are as dead as dirt.”
Making the contrast, Gabriel continues, “Let’s make sure we stay alive so our children can have the freedoms and live in a safe country where they can express their opinion about whatever issue they feel so strongly about.”
Our Survival is at Stake
Will we defeat this jihadist threat or will Western Civilization as we know it be destroyed? If the answer matters to you, then heed Gabriel’s words: “Right now, the national security issue is the most important issue so I urge people to join us, this year more than ever. This election is about survival.”
“We need to be in D.C.,” says Gabriel. “Our elected officials need to see our faces. We need to get tens of thousands of people to Washington, D.C. for the conference. We already have 18 members of Congress scheduled to speak at our national conference. It’s going to be an amazing time to be in D.C.”
Let Your Voice Be Heard
It is easy to think that one person cannot make a difference. This is a defeatist attitude. Act for America exists on the belief that an organized constituency – consisting of individuals from across the country – can make a difference.
Gabriel hears that defeatist attitude all the time, with people telling her, “What is my congressman going to do? He’s not going to listen to me. He needs to hear from 50,000 people.” In response, Gabriel encourages them, advising that if they participate in the National Security Conference, then their voices will be heard – where it matters!
Act for America is doing all it can to let your voice be heard.
“Not only do we want people to come, but we schedule appointments for them with their elected officials. If you are coming to D.C. as part of our national conference, and you want to meet with your senator, and you want to meet with your congressman, we will call your senator or congressman, we will line up a meeting for you. All you have to do is show up. You don’t have to lift a finger. Who else can give people this opportunity to sit down with your congressman or senator on Capitol Hill and let them know how you feel?”
Gabriel promises: “We’re lining up an appointment for you to sit down in front of him or her, in his or her office, on Capitol Hill. If for nothing else, this is your opportunity to make your voice heard. This is a time when people need to come to Act for America’s national conference.”
Gabriel concludes: “Go to ActForAmerica.org. Sign up now. We have the early registration, the Early Bird Special. … It will be the most important decision you made this year.”
