My wife has joined STACH, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Homeschooling, in anticipation of our pending move to Sulphur, LA. We received this e-mail about a politician, Peter Vidrine, that wants to talk to you. If you are in Lake Charles next week, have dinner at the Piccadilly. I haven’t researched his opponent, Boustany, so, I’ll stop short of an endorsement of Vidrine. But, I will recommend a visit to his website.
Homeschooling families are invited to hear Peter Vidrine, candidate for US House of
Representatives, speak next week in Lake Charles . He will
be speaking at the on Ryan Street at 6:30. Piccadilly was gracious enough to
host this event, but requested that the people who attend order food. He will begin
speaking at 6:30, but people should show up early to get in line and order food. Please
spread the word to your like-minded friends. Peter is a charismatic speaker and it will be
an exciting event.
Here is his statement on home schooling:
On homeschooling, we certainly have a better situation in Louisiana than the rest of the
nation, but it’s still not enough.
1) I will wholeheartedly support‘s H.R. 1056, the . (
2) I will also support Ron Paul’s H.R. 1059,of 2007. Concerning this
bill, however, I will seek to include as full time teachers, which
they are. ( http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-h1059/show )
3) We need to protect home schoolers who live in states with less academic freedom. It’s a
civil rights issue. Throughout America, parents need to be protected from unnecessary
encumbrances from the states that either block or restrict parents from teaching their own
children. That is something I believe strongly in and will work to protect all home
schoolers. Regardless of which state a family resides in, it is their right to teach their
children in whatever manner they choose. Period.
Peter would love to speak to a homeschool group and will make time in his Lake Charles
visit to do so, perhaps at a park so everyone can bring picnic dinner or lunch, if there is
enough interest. Interested families may contact me for more information at
Vidrine is the only 100% pro-life candidate in this race and is running an amazing
campaign in spite of receiving little media attention; he needs homeschoolers’ support
and will support us if we send him to Washington.
