Legislator Line Up
Have you seen the Legislator Line Up?
If not, head over now and check it out. We have worked to make sure that you can make an informed decision when voting in the May 3rd primaries.
We know it can be difficult to keep up on “all the things” so we tried to make it as easy as possible for you to identify where candidates stand on Medical Liberty.
In February every individual who filed for State House or State Senate candidacy was mailed a Hoosiers for Medical Liberty survey. Our survey gave them an opportunity to declare their dedication to Medical Liberty. We had a great response from liberty minded challengers, many of which scored a perfect 100% on our survey.
You will be able to see all the details here.
For challengers facing incumbents we have taken an extra step to point out some KEY votes that took place in 2021 highlighting the complete neglect for your Medical Liberty. If this bonus exists for a candidate their name will be underlined on the legislator line up and you can simply follow the link to learn more.
Do you recall the image from the top of this email? The one about the Turkish Proverb. I encourage you to go back and read it if you missed it.
You must know, the establishment is GREAT at trying to misdirect and confuse Hoosiers.
This IS the reason we are in the mess we are today.
Hoosiers we must not be fooled by incumbents who have historically done a very poor job representing our interests. We have been scrupulous at watching their tricks and theater then explaining what is happening both in public as well as “behind closed doors.”
Aren't you sick of having to fight endlessly for your rights?
Aren't you sick of government occurring behind closed doors?
Are you ready to get more Liberty minded candidates working for YOU on the inside?
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY!
Go, become informed, ask questions, and settle for nothing less than what you deserve. LIBERTY.
Confusion in the movement…?
Unfortunately we have received a lot of questions about the discrepancies between H4ML's Legislator Line Up and the endorsements from Stand for Health Freedom.
We are perplexed to say the least, but you must know that some of the endorsements or recommendations that Stand for Health Freedom gave are a DANGER to your Medical Liberty.
We made a video to highlight a few of the issues, it is about 4 minutes long and describes the flaws people are getting worked up over.
We encourage you to watch the video, review the legislator Line Up, and make an informed decision.
We do want to be clear, as a 501c4 non-profit organization, Hoosiers for Medical Liberty does not endorse, support, or oppose any political candidate.
Indiana has an easy set up to learn about your poling place and find out who is on your ballot. Simply follow this link.
Then you will click “Who's on the Ballot”
You will enter your info and you will be taken to your “portal." From there you will be able to view your poling place etc.
There will be a section titled “Who's on the ballot” and you can click “View all" to see everyone who will appear on your ballot.
I hope this information is helpful for you. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Let's talk abstinence…
Yep, we are going there!
Informed voting is a MUST! Especially in the primaries, these races are where the decisions are truly made when there is an open seat or a CHALLENGER in a republican controlled district!
I have discussed this for months and talked about the importance of voting, so what I am about to say may be a bit confusing.
If you do not have a candidate that you feel will adequately represent you, YOU SHOULD ABSTAIN from voting in that race.
You can still make selections on the ballot, there are multiple races.
Take a deep breath, I said it. ABSTAIN!!
This is not about choosing from the lesser of two evils. Simply abstain from placing a vote for a candidate that you don't think is fit for the job.
For me this choice is easy, one of my elected officials does not have a challenger and he has NOT been a good representation of what I want down at the state house. I will simply skip over that section on the ballot.
I will probably do the same thing in the general election in November.
Our votes are like points on a job evaluation. If we want them to vote the conscience of the people than we had better do the same.
I don't want to affirm poor representation.
Remember our voting is the only way to hold elected officials accountable and we must make sure they know where we stand.
🚨🚨Call to action🚨🚨
You knew I couldn't leave ya without a call to action, right?!?!
This one is going to be simple. Pick one or two:
Thank you for your ongoing dedication to Medical Liberty! This is a long fight, and the primaries are a big part of accountability!
