If you feel frustrated because it seems that none of the media-baptized major candidates for president come close to representing your worldview, it may comfort you to know that there are a host of other “fringe” candidates who would be delighted to speak for you. From the far left to the extreme right, there is bound to be a presidential candidate that’s willing to stand up for your political ideals. You may need to do a little research however, since most of these candidates are ignored by the press and cannot afford to buy commercial time.
The U.S. Taxpayers Alliance presents Howard Phillips for those voters who are more concerned with a candidate’s character and principles and who are willing to sacrifice short term political success for the long term possibility of transforming our nation. Howard Phillips preaches one of the most revolutionary messages of any of these third party candidates. His philosophy of government is explicitly Christian. There are a number of politicians who support a generally Christian approach to welfare, business and economics, while misapplying the concept of liberty in order to endorse abortion, euthanasia, sodomy and drug use. Other politicians may oppose these social evils while promoting the economic half of the liberal/humanist agenda. Phillips believes that biblical principles apply to both economic and moral issues.
Howard Phillips has been part of the American political scene for more than 30 years. After twice serving as the Student Council president at Harvard College, he orchestrated a conservative takeover of the Republican Party of Boston, which he chaired for two years. From 1966-68 as the assistant to the chairman of the Republican National Committee, he recruited thousands of young people and minorities to civic activism and public service careers. Phillips headed up two U.S. government agencies including the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity in the Executive Office of the President. In 1974, he resigned from government to become the Chairman of the Conservative Caucus. His political activities culminated in the recent creation of the U.S. Taxpayers Alliance as a precursor to a full fledged alternative national party.
Mr. Phillips claims that the “politics of conventional ambition and political pragmatism are not working.” His strategy for change is simple: “To establish a party of principle which will have the option of withholding political support from either or both major political parties whenever it is determined that the lesser of two evils can be the worst outcome of all. But our objective is more profound than to achieve victory in particular electoral contests. Our goal is to recast the entire dialectic of American politics away from humanistic, socialistic materialism, and back in the direction of biblical, constitutional liberty.”
Howard Phillips raises many critical issues which have been deliberately squelched from public debate for years. He may or may not be the best doctor to offer the strong medicine he prescribes, but he is more willing to share the formula with anyone who recognizes the need. Let’s just hope we can get some vaccine to the patient before the disease spreads too far.

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
