Subject: 8 members of the Texas Board of Education may re-write our nation's

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

       When I told Mike Huckabee that eight members of the Texas
       State Board of Education could soon re-write our nation's
       textbooks and censor our heritage of faith and freedom,
       Mike was shocked. See below.  -- Mat

Just a few days ago on Mike Huckabee's television show, I shared
about the latest round of attacks on the culture and heritage
of America - the re-writing of our children's textbooks.

As I laid out what was happening - how anti-religious, revisionist
groups are pressuring key board members to remove references
to basic facts of American history and position our nation as
a global villain - Mike was very troubled.

In fact, he said, "I don't tend to be an alarmist. But this
is alarming!"

       Go here right now to watch my interview on the Mike
       Huckabee show with the latest details on the effort to
       censor our children's textbooks:


++"Christmas" replaced with "Diwali"!

As I shared with you a few days ago, the Texas State Board
of Education will soon finalize the language that publishers
use to align their textbooks to current "acceptable standards."
They are receiving pressure and outrageous demands from
activists who want to literally re-write American history!

The Board is considering many radical changes to the curriculum,
even stripping "Christmas Day" from the textbooks and including
a Hindu holiday called "Diwali"! And that's just the tip of
the iceberg. Other changes being considered:

       +Replacing the term "American" with "Global Citizen."

       +Stating that students need to be shaped "for responsible
        citizenship in a global society."

       +Removing all references to Daniel Boone, General George
        Patton, Nathan Hale, and Columbus Day.

       +Replacing "expansionism and free enterprise" with
        "imperialism and capitalism."

If that's not alarming enough, it gets worse! Because Texas
is the nation's largest purchaser of textbooks, many other
school systems nationally use these same books.

       The decision of eight people could affect a generation of
       tens of millions of our nation's school children!

++That's why we MUST "Take Back America" in 2010

Floyd, unbelievably, the Texas vote is too close to
call. It's inconceivable to me that such a small number of
people could yield so much power in what is being taught
in our nation's school systems - and potentially get it
so wrong!

We cannot stand idly by and allow our children and grandchildren
to be brainwashed through revisionist history, the watering
down of our nation's heritage and principles, the depiction
that our ancestors (and we ourselves!) are villains in the
world, and the insistence that we all conform to some "global"

This is not to say that several of the board members are not
well-informed, thoughtful citizens who realize how high the
stakes in this process truly are.  In fact, we have key
contacts close to the process that are receiving our
prayer and encouragement!

But the radical censors are intensely lobbying and pressuring
the entire group to go along with their activist viewpoint.
This outrageous attack on America's heritage is just one
more reason why Liberty Counsel's "Take Back America 2010"
campaign is so important!

If we allow these socialists to indoctrinate America's
upcoming generations by tearing down the cultural
foundations of our nation, our heritage and our freedom
will be lost forever!

Would you please take a moment right now to sign our
"Take Back America 2010" petition? Go here:


In order to take back our nation, we must stop any and all
efforts to revise our history and brainwash our children!
That's why I want to send the strongest message possible
to the liberal elites that we will NOT allow them to
destroy our heritage.

But I need your help.


Join tens of thousands of concerned Americans who have
already signed the "Take Back America 2010" petition:


Liberty Counsel will do everything in our power to stop
anti-faith, anti-American revisionists from re-writing
our children's textbooks. But I need you to stand with
me right now to "Take Back America."

++Liberty Counsel's guiding principles

We believe we are Christians first. We are also proud
Americans! We believe in the principles of our Constitution
and Declaration of Independence. These are among the
core reasons I entered the field of law and founded
Liberty Counsel. On the Huckabee show, I quoted the
Declaration of Independence:

       "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all
       men are created equal, that they are endowed by
       their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that
       among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit
       of Happiness."

I am deeply thankful for the Founding Fathers who crafted
these documents and for the millions who have fought
for our liberties and freedom over the years.  I will
not allow a handful of people to rewrite the past in
order to reduce our nation to being a small part of
some ill-conceived global society!

Please help me by signing our "Take Back America 2010" petition.

Thank you and God bless America!
