Choose True Liberty is a non-profit website dedicated to educating voters, citizens, families, and communities on the virtues of keeping God in politics where He belongs. It is the mission of this site to unashamedly endeavor to keep God in politics as fervently as the opposition tries to keep Him out.
The inspiration comes from one of our greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln, who came to understand during his first term in office that the only thing that was going to save the Union was for the Union to return to God. He said:
"[I]nasmuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisement in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people?
"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.
"But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own."1
It is the view of this website that the solution Lincoln identified during his first term in office is the same solution required today: put God back into our politics. He said, "It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness."2
That is the mission and goal of articles and links shared here on Choose True Liberty.
1 Lincoln's Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day, issued March 30, 1863
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports...And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer."
