"I've been watching sadly over the past few years as the Republican party has moved more and more into lockstep with the Democrats. The candidates for both parties have been nothing more than disasters, which prompted me to quit the Republican party. I now feel free to look for the candidate that has my values. I have found that candidate in Tom Hoefling. A Bible-believing, God-honoring, no compromise man. Now that's a candidate!"
"My vote for president of the United States is for Tom Hoefling . A man that loves the Lord."
"I want a President who is a pro life, pro religious freedom Christian Constitutional Conservative. Hoefling fits the bill. I can compromise on many things but I cannot justify compromising on the right to life. Hoefling always stands for innocent children."
"I have long been disillusioned with the two-party system and the idea that Christians should compromise Biblical ideals for a false dichotomy and misguided pragmatism. So I was excited to learn of Tom Hoefling from mutual friends. The more I follow his platform, the more I see the consistency, moral principles, and desire to honor God that are sorely lacking in other current candidates. From a political standpoint, Hoefling is the only candidate who actually seems to care what our Constitution says. The two main issues for me when choosing a candidate to support are the rights of the unborn and the rights of parents to raise and educate their own children, and I know these are rights for which Tom Hoefling will fight."

"We are a family of eight; Mom & Dad with six children (two registered to vote). We fear God more than man. We are encouraged when faithful men make a stand for the God we love and serve. We believe Tom Hoefling is such a man!"
"I support Tom Hoefling for president. A candidate who is not afraid to stand beside his moral beliefs and let them be known. A good president needs to have his priorities in order, God, family then country... And I believe this is what Tom Hoefling represents."
"Because Tom stands on the only rock there is. All other ground is sinking sand. (Matthew 7:24-27) He is conscious of his Christian worldview which I'm sure is the basis for his running, the answers he gives to questions, and the way he would run his administration and this country. My prayers are with this man and his family and I am so happy to have found a candidate with a solid Biblical foundation to support!"
"Actually Mr. Hoefling endorsed himself when he responded to my letter: I asked him why he believed he could win when it was mathematically unrealistic to assume he could get enough votes. He replied: 'According to Gallup, about 70% of the American people still self-identify as Christian. Now, you and I both know that much of that is cultural, not spiritual. However, if even one-third of that 70% would stop compromising self-evident truth, and America's core moral and constitutional principles, and vote for me, I would win. It's really that simple. In any case, we're trying to turn American Christians back to morality and principle, win or lose. That is bound to bear good fruit, no matter the outcome of any particular election. Isn't it?'"
Eagle Grove, Iowa - “There are literally dozens of virtually unknown folks who run for President of the United States each election cycle but very few garner any significant attention. Today, Jay Rudolph speaks with one from our region who finished in the top ten in the 2012 election and is running again this year…presidential candidate Tom Hoefling of Lohrville, Iowa, who describes himself as a consistent, principled conservative…”
An important note from Tom:
I love the interview overall, and I appreciate these fine Christian brethren airing it very much, but I have to say that their closing interpretation of what I said is not quite accurate. I don't believe we need any "personhood measure." We already have more than sufficient explicit, imperative "personhood measures" within the existing amendments of the supreme law of our land. All that we really lack are representatives, and executives, and judges, who will keep their oaths to support and defend that supreme law, and provide equal protection for the God-given, unalienable right to life of every person, born or unborn.
"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law."
-- The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution
"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
-- The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution
Note number two:
Jay immediately promised to change the ending of part two before it airs. God bless him, and their great ministry!
"I want Tom Hoefling for President because he has amazing Christian values and he wants to close every abortion clinic in America! Tom Hoefling for President!"
"My views and Tom's views of what the Federal Government should be is spot on. We need to take America back and allow the individual be able to achieve success based on their hard work and God given rights. Dismantle the IRS, EPA, and many other government atrocities that are designed to regulate us to the nth degree."
"I support Mr. Hoefling for President. I concur with Mr. Hoefling on his stance on government, politics, and, of course, his Biblical position."
You cannot plumb the depths, or scale the heights, of the glory and power and knowledge and wisdom contained in God's Word. But in diligently seeking to do so, you will be transformed, from glory to glory, into the image and likeness of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself over to the tormentors out of love for His Father and for you, and rose from the grave to show heaven and earth that you, in His sight, stand justified.
I do politics every day, and some criticize me for posting things like I just posted above. They think I'm foolish for doing so. It's just not "politic," you know?
But, as Jim Elliott famously said:
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose!”
The Gospel comes first. If we obey God's Word, and follow Christ in truth, our politics will be straightened out, quite naturally.
But if we as a people, and as a church, continue to thumb our nose at God, the moral foundations of the American Republic will be, finally and completely, gone. And the spiritual, moral, and physical wreck of America that follows will be one of the most frightful tragedies in human history. The city set on a hill will have finally been brought down to the agonies of a hell on earth. And the whole world will suffer greatly for that fall as well.
"Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle... In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity... That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants."
"It becomes a people publicly to acknowledge the over-ruling hand of Divine Providence and their dependence upon the Supreme Being as their Creator and Merciful Preserver . . . and with becoming humility and sincere repentance to supplicate the pardon that we may obtain forgiveness through the merits and mediation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
"Condescend, merciful Father! to grant as far as proper these imperfect petitions, to accept these inadequate thanksgivings, and to pardon whatever of sin hath mingled in them for the sake of Jesus Christ, our blessed Lord and Savior; unto Whom, with Thee, and the blessed Spirit, ever one God, be rendered all honor and glory, now and forever.
"The Republican and Democrat parties are indistingushable from one another. We need true, conservative God-loving, fearless leadership to get us through these dark times. We need someone who looks to Jesus Christ as Sovereign King."
"Tom Hoefling communicates intelligently and accurately on issues, and prioritizes posterity, which has been forgotten in the wake of a self-serving culture."
The courts cannot do ANYTHING that we don't allow.
Please reread that sentence as many times as it takes for its full import to sink fully into your mind and heart. Because it one of the primary keys to saving this republic and securing the blessings of liberty to our posterity.
"I do not forget the position assumed by some that constitutional questions are to be decided by the Supreme Court, nor do I deny that such decisions must be binding in any case upon the parties to a suit as to the object of that suit, while they are also entitled to very high respect and consideration in all parallel cases by all other departments of the Government. And while it is obviously possible that such decision may be erroneous in any given case, still the evil effect following it, being limited to that particular case, with the chance that it may be overruled and never become a precedent for other cases, can better be borne than could the evils of a different practice. At the same time, the candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the Government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their Government into the hands of that eminent tribunal. Nor is there in this view any assault upon the court or the judges. It is a duty from which they may not shrink to decide cases properly brought before them, and it is no fault of theirs if others seek to turn their decisions to political purposes."
Yesterday I was asked by a new friend for my thoughts on Limited Government.
I have a simple three part test of all laws and public policies:
1) Is it right?
2) Is it constitutional?
3) Is it absolutely necessary?
Much of what our federal government does today fails all three parts of the test.
Most of what our federal government does today fails to meet one or more parts of the test.
We have to get back within the bounds of morality, constitutionality, and common sense or this great republic cannot possibly survive.
Self-government in liberty cannot be preserved and delivered to our children and grandchildren unless we soon return to the basic principles America was founded upon.
"I had recently all but given up on voting any more. I personally believe that our government has become more aristocratic than democratic and I know that either way my vote probably doesn't really count; however, I have decided that in November I will indeed express my right to vote and am in full support of America's Party candidate, Thomas Hoefling. Despite my growing distaste for politics, I can fully support a man who fears the judgment of God and is true to his values. I would encourage all of you to not give in to the GOP/Democrat establishment and do the same."
"There is only one constitutional conservative running and it is Mr. Hoefling."
"I agree with Tom's values, as expressed on the bottom of his website:
'Just as 'good fences make for good neighbors,' good government is mainly about knowing where the legitimate boundaries are, and having the courage to defend those borders forcefully. This is true in terms of the defense of our territory, our security, and our national sovereignty, but it also applies to the sworn duty of all of those in government to equally protect the God-given, unalienable rights of each individual person, from their creation onward, their sacred obligation to stay well within the enumerated powers of our constitutions, and of the role legitimate government must play in balancing the competing rights and interests of the people, in order to establish justice.'"
"I support Tom Hoefling because he stands firm and is unashamed when it comes to the truth of God's word. He's a man who speaks and stands for the Constitution. He believes abortion and the shedding of innocent blood invites judgement on our land and will fight against the evil of abortion. May many more righteous men rise up in these troubled days in which we live. May many more righteous men rise up to speak truth without fear and in love!"
