It's Time to Host a House Party

America's most powerful union, the National Education Association known as the NEA, is urging its members to host House Parties in order to encourage their friends to reelect Barack Obama as President. At the annual NEA convention, delegates were told, "We need to be part of politics." That's good advice for us, too. NEA lobbyists are smart enough to know that one of the best ways to get the policies they want is to hold House Parties and discuss current issues, politics, and candidates. Sometimes these parties are called Study Groups and sometimes Book Clubs. Before Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, he boasted that he had at least one of these House Parties in every congressional district, and I believe that was a major factor in why he won.

A well-informed citizenry is absolutely essential to keeping our constitutional republic. I urgently recommend that everyone listening to this program invite a dozen or more of your friends and neighbors to meet regularly, do a little background reading on a particular subject, and then discuss it so you are able to tell your candidates and representatives how you want them to vote, and so that you can call in on your favorite radio talk shows and say something helpful. For your topic of discussion at your House Party, you can easily use the monthly newsletter, the Phyllis Schlafly Report, or our monthly Education Reporter. I recommend the August issue of both publications, which contains up-to-date information about the NEA, the National Education Association. The Eagle Forum website, www.eagleforum.org, has two other study plans of eight lessons each, one on a variety of issues, and one on the mischief of the courts. The website contains all the necessary information, suggested questions for discussion, and additional references and internet links. That's all you need to plan a worthwhile educational meeting with your friends so they will be well-informed before the November election. When you are equipped with knowledge and facts, you and your friends can become activists who can determine public policies and elect good candidates.

To find people to join you in your Study Group, contact your friends and neighbors, concerned citizens, and church members. When you find a dozen people who will commit to regular meetings, arrange a regular time and place to meet, and you are ready to start!
