Busy this weekend Kansas voters? Well clear your plans friends, because the Kansas Republicans are putting on a shindig to end all shindigs. That’s right (I mean literally, politically right) they are dialing the clock back to 1955 with a good, old-fashioned REVIVAL. Praise the lord and can I get a “hallelujah!”
Turns out they sent me an advanced picture of the event.
Check out their Facebook page with all the details and this e-mail announcing all of the super fun things that you can expect:
My Dear Friends,
We are just 7 days from the biggest conservative event of the year. A week from today speakers, a bluegrass band, a barbershop quartet, a Lincoln impersonator will take the stage to inform and entertain us. A week from today, our children will participate in a Patriots Kids Camp where they will learn about our Founders and this great country while doing fun activities and crafts.
However, the most important thing that will happen during this event is not the speakers or the music. The most important thing is that we will be surrounded by like-minded individuals that share our hopes and dreams about America.
A revival is a time for personal renewal. It is a time to focus on our Faith, our Families, and our Freedoms. Those things that should be the most important things in our lives and the things we can pass on to the next generation.
Our country is at a crossroads. The elections that are only 3 weeks away will decide the direction of our country. If conservatives Christians stay home and not vote, I fear the direction the country will go. The fact is that only 15 million of the 60 million Christians in America will vote. That is terrible! We could win every election if we could turn that around.
We are at the time in history that we must repeat the actions of our Founders and pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to insure that our children have a country where they can truly enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I am reminded of the words of Lincoln at Gettysburg; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
I hope you all will join me in a day of renewal and re-commitment.
Forget clowns or games, nothing says a great time for kids like an Abraham Lincoln impersonator and a barbershop quartet.
Yawn.. Sorry, I fell asleep just writing about this event.
I’m going to brush up on songs that I think will be part of the “sing-a-long”- I’m going to take a guess that “Black Widow” by Iggy Azelea is one.
Now people will call me a Debbie Downer, but I need to point out a little something. You can’t deny that there is a Christian theme going on here. Here’s a little secret, Abraham Lincoln was a lot of things – some would say the greatest American President that our country has ever had, but he wasn’t exactly killing it in the Christian department. In fact, in his run for Congress in 1846 he was talked about that he wasn’t Christian enough. He was a very spiritual President and often quoted Scripture and the Bible, but here’s a little fact for your next Trivial Pursuit game, Abraham Lincoln never actually belonged to a Christian Church. Awkward…
Wonder if that will be brought up at the revival?
Anyway, there are all sort of fun things for you and your family to win at this GOP Revival like…..
Anyway, hope everyone can make it on October 11. While the rest of Kansas City is partying like it’s 1985 to honor our Kansas City Royals, the Kansas GOP is going to party like it’s 1955.
Way to keep it modern and inclusive KS GOP.
