PURCELLVILLE, Va., Oct. 29, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The HSLDA PAC, the political action committee of the Home School Legal Defense Association, recently announced its support for Pat Roberts and Tom Cotton in two U.S. Senate races that could decide the future of American self-government. Both Roberts and Cotton are strong supporters of limited government, homeschool freedom, and parental rights.
"These elections are vital to our freedoms. The HSLDA PAC has paid a particular emphasis to those who oppose dangerous United Nations treaties like the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), and seeks to elect members to the Senate who will never surrender our nation's sovereignty to the United Nations," said Michael Farris, the Chairman of HSLDA.
Pat Roberts, the senior U.S. Senator from Kansas, has been a tireless voice for homeschool freedom and parental rights during his service as a member of the U.S. Senate. In 2012, he voted against the CRPD, adding to his strong record of supporting American self-government when he stood against the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in the 90s. Senator Roberts is also a veteran, having served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Tom Cotton is a current member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Arkansas's 4th congressional district. He supports the Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and, in stark contrast to his opponent, incumbent Senator Mark Pryor, opposes the CRC and CRPD. Cotton is a U.S. Army veteran, having served almost five years as an active duty Infantry Officer. He served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne.
"Both of these men understand why U.N. treaties like the CRC and CRPD threaten our system of self- government, as well as homeschool freedom and parental rights," said Will Estrada, Director of the HSLDA PAC. "Homeschoolers are excited to stand with Senator Roberts and soon-to-be Senator Cotton in their important elections next week. Re-electing Pat Roberts to the Senate, and electing Tom Cotton to the Senate, will benefit not only the citizens of Kansas and Arkansas, but homeschool freedom nationwide."
