To do our duty

Michael Peroutka's statement on the election from US Newswire...

"I am most grateful to all of you who have supported our campaign and share our desire to restore our original God-honoring American Constitutional Republic. As the campaign has come to an end, I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and encouragement from all corners of the country. I am deeply grateful for your prayers for me, for my wife, Diane and our children, Beth, Patrick and Timothy.

"Since I too often forget to thank my brother Steve, I want to acknowledge his love, support and friendship. God has blessed me with a generous and brilliant brother and business partner who cares and works tirelessly for the protection of the unborn.

"Last night, we had a wonderful 'Victory Celebration' hosted by the Maryland Constitution Party vice chairman, Mike Chastain, and featuring presentations by 'Little Stevie' Peroutka, Chairman Jim Clymer, John Lofton and Howard Phillips.

"In my remarks I emphasized that when we do our duty, every day is a victory.

"Last night, we celebrated God's glorious and gracious sovereignty over all things. As Christ tells us in Matthew 28:18, 'All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.' Of course, this includes authority over civil government and over political elections. His will be done.

"Our victory is in declaring God's sovereign nature and submitting ourselves to His will. We do this when we run for office acknowledging God, defending the family, and working to restore the American Republic. We do this when we vote only for those men who have submitted their lives to faithfulness and obedience to His Word.

"With this victory in mind -- His victory -- I encourage all Americans of good will to join us in the coming days, months and years to build our effort to honor God, defend the family and restore the Republic."
