CALL to ACTION re: Ohio House Speakership

Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 8:55 p.m.


In November, Ohioans voted in a super majority of 67 Republicans to the Ohio House, only to have this super majority hijacked by 22 dishonorable and unethical Ohio House Republicans who joined with all 32 Ohio House Democrats to elect unprincipled Rep. Stephens as Speaker of the House instead of Rep. Derek Merrin, who won the Republican caucus vote for this position.

WHAT’S AT STAKE: There is little doubt, Speaker Stephens plans to sell out all conservative issues this session to appease his House Democrat base. The only way we can overcome this is to move at least 5 to 7 of the 22 turncoats to our side on specific issues. The top issue for Democrats is to support PLANNED PARENTHOOD in making abortion a constitutional right in Ohio. The way we stop them is to get an amendment to the Ohio Constitution which requires future Constitutional amendments to pass with 60% of the vote instead of the current 50% + 1.

Take Action – Call and email these Ohio House Republicans

WHO WE ARE TARGETING: Only those of the 22 dishonorable Republicans we believe are most vulnerable will be targeted for this initiative. You can find these members and their contact information below.

Sample Message:
Dear Rep. ______________,

I was extremely shocked and irate you chose to betray me and other Republican voters who supported you by teaming with the all of the Ohio House Democrats to elect Rep. Jason Stephens as Speaker of the House. To start down the road to redemption, you must support the efforts of the Ohio Republican Caucus to pass HR 1 by February 1 to make the threshold to pass future amendments to the Ohio Constitution 60%. Not supporting this effort will prove you value abortion, the Democrats and especially PLANNED PARENTHOOD more than your own base!

I expect you to respond to this email ASAP!

On Sunday, February 7, 1954 President Dwight David Eisenhower (34th President) gave a radio address that emphasized the importance of godliness and spirituality in American history. “Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built the Republic.” Eisenhower insisted that “The one unifying feature of the American experience was faith.” It was two years after this speech on July 30, 1956 that Eisenhower signed a law declaring “In God We Trust” to be the nation’s official motto.

Ohio Revised Code 3313.801

Individuals are able to donate a framed item that includes our National Motto to one of Ohio’s 614 public school districts of their choice and that district is required to put the item with our National Motto in their auditorium, Cafeteria or a School Room. Based on this unique Ohio Law, you can help put God back in Ohio’s School Rooms.

Our Goal Is To Place Frames With Our National Motto In 50% Of Ohio Schools By December 31, 2022.

Take Action

Now today, you have the real opportunity to help change the trajectory of public education by sponsoring a copy of our National Motto to be placed in your local school district. 

We are offering 4 different images of the American flag with the motto “In God We Trust” on the poster.

The fames are 24 x 30 to 36 x 24.

We are asking group leaders to spread the word to their members and ask them to sponsor a school district. There is a cost to produce but members can chip in to purchase one frame for the school district of their choice.

We would like the word to be spread to others in your communities that this chance to put God back into our schools is available.

See the web site for more information and learn how you can further this effort.

Thanks, in advance, for participating!
