Dear Friends of LIFA:

K. Carl Smith is the author of Frederick Douglas Republicans: The Movement to Re-Ignite America’s Passion for Liberty, The booklet describes with painful detail who were the greedy slave holders and who fought them.

The following is a quotation from the Frederick Douglas Republicans:

 “Prior to the founding of the Republican Party, the Democratic Party gained control of Congress in 1820.  From 1820 to 1854, the Democrat-controlled Congress passed pro-slavery laws and blocked the civil rights of black Americans.  The Democrat-led Congress passed three specific laws:

In 1820 the Missouri Compromise was passed. This law permitted slavery in the federal territories and it reversed the Northwest Ordinance of 1789 (The Northwest Ordinance forbade slavery in the federal territories).

In 1850 the Fugitive Slave Law was passed.  This law required Northerners to return escaped slaves back into slavery or pay a huge fine.  Because of this law approximately 20,000 blacks in the North fled to Canada.

In 1854 the Kansas-Nebraska Act was passed.  This law extended slavery into parts of the Kansas-Nebraska territory, which included Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and South Dakota.

The passing of these three laws created an intense political climate.  To neutralize the pro-slavery agenda of the Democratic Party, the Republican Party was formed with two main purposes in mind: (1) To end slavery; and (2) To secure equal civil rights for black Americans.

In 1860 Republican Party candidate Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th President of the United States.  For the first time, the Republican Party won the majority in the U.S. House and senate, giving them control of the law making process.

With this new found political clout, the Republican-controlled Congress passed the following laws that ended slavery and secured the civil rights of black Americans:

In 1862 slavery was abolished in Washington, D.C.

In 1863 the Emancipation Proclamation was issued –freeing all slaves in the Southern states.

In 1864 the Fugitive Slave Law was abolished—over the almost unanimous opposition of the northern Democrats still in Congress.

In 1865 the Freedmen’s Bureau Law was passed.  This law formed a federal agency that set up schools and hospitals for black Americans and it distributed clothes, food, and fuel throughout the south.

In 1865 the 13th Amendment was passed.  This amendment officially abolished slavery in the United States.

In 1868 the 14th Amendment was passed.  This amendment declared that former slaves were full citizens of the State in which they lived and were therefore entitled to all the rights and privileges of any other citizen in that State.”

In 2020 we are, once again, at a crossroads to elect a president that will preserve our freedoms, secure our national sovereignty, bring back prosperity and equal opportunity for Americans of all races.  With the interests of the People of the United States to take precedence.

In the other hand you have a party that represent Marxist/Socialist/Communist and Islamist ideology.   If you read the history of the USSR, North Korea, Viet Nam, Cuba, Venezuela you will see how free people, some very prosperous, became the poorest in the world while their leaders became the wealthiest people on earth!

LIFA cannot emphasize enough the horrors that the victims of Socialism/Communism/Islamism have endured and how many people have lost their freedoms and/or lives by them.  Christianity is targeted by all of those regimes; our Christian principles are the antithesis of their philosophies and need to be squashed.

If this were not enough this party has now selected a vice-president candidate who descends from a major slave holding Jamaican family.

This is not the time for Americans to take their freedoms for granted.  If we lose them, we lose them forever!
