Thanks so much for visiting Common Sense Coalition. My name is Michael Brown, co-founder, along with Mr. Bill Goins of the "Not Too Late to Save2016" Project. Bill also founded Common Sense Coalition in July of 2007 while serving as State Field Director of the Iowa Straw Poll for Gov. Mike Huckabee. This endeavor is a bedrock - grassroots initiative calling together social and fiscal conservatives such as yourself who are displeased in the direction our country is headed. This is a Home for the Homeless. Far too long has there been an empty seat at the table for Social and Christian Conservatives who have become increasingly disenfranchised or, worse yet, dismissed altogether from substantive debate relative to issues of importance to Judeo-Christian world view. It is time for a change.
In spite of, and much to the credit of previous organizational attempts such as Moral Majority, Christian Coalition of America and others to curb this trend, the insistence of the liberal left to impose its ideologies and value system upon those with opposite moral conscience, remains. It is time for a change.
I have served in Washington, D.C. over the past 7 years in several capacities, much of which has been as National Church Liaison and Chief House Lobbyist to the U.S. House of Representatives for The Christian Coalition of America. I stood in our offices, located only 2 blocks from the U.S. Capitol, and witnessed the horrific events unfold on the morning of September 11, 2001. I saw the black plume of smoke against steel blue skies as I gazed in unbelief toward the moments-before attack on the Pentagon. I recall the terror stricken look on people's faces in the street during the mayhem to evacuate Capitol Hill. America has much to gain in lessons learned from the attacks on 9/11, but America has very much to lose if we have failed to learn those lessons. It is time for a change.
Sensing a change in my own journey, I encountered Mr. Bill Goins of Kentucky; a devoted Christian husband, father and successful businessman with a tried and proven ability to motivate, educate and facilitate people to pursue their dreams and overcome great challenges. As we conversed and came to recognize our respective strengths and love for America we both came to the same conclusion; It is time for a change.
There are only limited number of opportunities in life given to make a difference by making right choices. History retains a meticulously accurate ledger of events whose outcomes, good or bad, depended upon the actions either taken or not taken by those who were given the choice. Today, the two of us have chosen to embark upon making a difference by combining our voices to ensure that right choices will be made in America to preserve those values and ideals that have made America both free and good.
We invite you to unite your voice with ours by registering on the site and sharing your comments. (CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FORUM) There is too much to be forever lost in the 2010 Elections by doing nothing, but by standing shoulder to shoulder in a unified effort there is much more to be gained.
