Sam, who is president of the American Pastors Network, shared a prayer recognizing that God is the “source of all truth, and the basis upon which this nation was founded, our justice system, our system of law, our separation of power, our understanding of right and wrong, and moral truth, all of those things.”

You can read it here.

Sam represented the 128th District in the Pennsylvania House from 1993 to 2010 and ran for governor in 2010 against Tom Corbett. How we wish he won.

What Sam Rohrer Has Been Up To

Sam Rohrer, the former state representative from Berks County who was one of Pennsylvania’s better political figures, now presides over Pennsylvania Pastors Network.

He recently sent out this note:

It’s been some time since I reached out. I hope you’ve been well in the interim. In the meantime, I’m excited to tell you about the great and encouraging things that have happened this past year.

As you may recall, following the 2012 Senate Primary, I accepted the position of President of the Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network. In my new position, I serve by being a voice for Truth and an advocate for Pastors in the Public Square by providing Bible based and Constitutionally consistent analysis and recommendations on matters of public policy. These include, Constitutional issues, Obamacare, the protection of marriage, parental involvement in education, and the duty of public officials to stand firm against tyranny. My mission in part is to identify, encourage, educate and network pastors to “Stand in the Gap” for Truth and to boldly preach and apply Biblical principles to all these challenges of the day. As in the days of our founding, our Pastors must stand up!

I’ve said it hundreds of times that the answers to our problems won’t come from a political solution, a legislative mandate or a Supreme Court ruling-but from the moral teachings of the Bible. And God has called me to apply Biblical truth to the root problems of our times, and to help repair the broken foundations of our freedom. But I can’t do it alone. I would love for you to be a part of this exciting challenge.

I’d like to invite you to sign up here and join the email list so that you can be plugged in to needs, ideas and opportunities for service. And please feel free to visit our website: where you’ll find a variety of interesting resources and tools.

Many people wonder if there is still reason to hope, and they wonder if they can do anything to stem the slide into moral and economic decay. I believe there is hope – but the window is closing. In just one year, for example, the Pennsylvania Pastor’s network (PPN) grew from 1200 pastors to over 2200. Now PPN has expanded to include the American Pastors’ Network, which gives us a presence in all 50 states. Yes. There is hope with God’s help, and with your involvement, there is greater hope yet.

Why Sam Rohrer Should Be The Nominee

By Fran Coppock

Sam Rohrer should be the Republican choice to run against incumbent Senator Bob Casey.  Besides having a proving record of supporting the Constitution, he is the only one of the three front-runners who is actually a life-long Republican.

He is also the only one of the five on the primary ballot who is an experienced statesman. Look up his voting record and see how he has voted in his 18 years in the Pennsylvania House. When you hire someone you want experience and honesty. He has both.

 Something else to remember: one of the former Democrats running against him helped finance Joe Sestak in order to get our own Curt Weldon out of Congress. This is the one our Delaware CountyRepublican Party is endorsing. His name is Steve Welch. Don’t be fooled.

 When you go to the polls on April 24 be educated before you vote. We  need someone who is a fiscal conservative in these hard times. We would have that with Sam Rohrer. Look at his voting check list on

Sam Rohrer Checklist — A Guide For Legislators

Sam Rohrer Checklist — Sam Rohrer, as a member of the Pennsylvania House representing the 128th District, estimates he casts 120,000 votes before declining to run for re-election in 2010 to concentrate on a bid to be governor.

He dealt with each vote in accordance to a checklist he devised and he says he never violated its principles.

Sam’s checklist is:

  • Is it moral?
  • Is it constitutional?
  • Does it strengthen individual freedom or does it strengthen government control over the individual?
  • Is it inefficient or ineffective?
  • Is there money to pay for it?

Here it is as a pdf file that you can print to give to your legislators at any level: Sam Rohrer Checklist

Corbett Twists Arms; Rohrer Twists Corbett — Sam Rohrer brought his freedom movement — the phrase he feels is more comprehensive than  “tea party” — to Newtown Square, tonight, Feb. 1, as he begins in earnest his campaign to be the Republican to take on incumbent Bob Casey in this fall’s U.S. Senate race.

The nominee will be decided at the April 24 primary election. The Republican establishment
has shamelessly endorsed Chester County businessman Steve Welch despite Welch having had voted for Barack Obama and given money to Democrat Congressman Joe Sestak.

Rohrer and others in the Knights of Columbus Hall on Route 252 described the apparently unprecedented pressure placed on the State Committee people by Gov. Tom Corbett and the party establishment to vote for Welch. Rohrer said he saw some of the committeepeople in tears from the intimidation which included threats of lost government jobs.

What was Corbett’s motivation? Rohrer —
who challenged Corbett in the 2010 gubernatorial primary —  wouldn’t say.

“Dig it out,” he directed.

Rohrer served 18 years in the Pennsylvania House representing the 128th District before stepping down for the governor’s race. Minnesota Congresswoman and recent presidential contender Michele Bachmann has credited him with getting her involved in politics.

Rohrer said his reasons for running is to return the nation to its moorings — he mentioned the recently passed
National Defense Authorization Act which arguably  gives the president the power to arrest people at will and hold them without trial — and to cushion the pain many feel is inevitable due to the policies pursued by both parties over the last two decades

“It doesn’t make sense for Congress to approve multiple increases in the debt ceiling,” he said.

Nor did it make sense for us to be dependent on others for energy.

“We have more energy under the ground than in any country in the world,” he said, and that Pennsylvania might have more energy than any other state.

Rohrer also noted  our unpayable debt. “Do we even have a sound currency?” he asked.

Rohrer said Casey needed to be replaced because “we can’t trust him.”

“He said he was pro life. His votes indicate he is not,” Rohrer said.

He said that  Casey, with words claims that he supports the Second Amendment but with deeds supports President Obama’s anti-Second Amendment appointees. He noted that Casey agrees with Obama that coal mines should be shut down and that drilling for natural gas should be made harder.

“You cannot have trust without telling the truth,” Rohrer said.

Rohrer estimates that in his career as a legislator he casts 120,000 votes.

“The single most important thing a person in elective office does is vote,” he said.

And he said everyone tries to buy it.

“The system has become so corrupt you could not even predict what a person would do,” he said.

He said that while in office he sat next to a Delaware County legislator, who told him ” I used to be able to go home at night, place my head on the pillow and say I did something good today. I can no longer do that.”

Rohrer said he developed a checklist for himself to protect him from that fate.

The first question he asks regarding legislation is “is it moral.” Rohrer noted that he has never voted to give funding to Planned Parenthood.

Question 2 is: Is it Constitutional?

Question 3 is: Does it strengthen individual freedom or does it strengthen government control over the individual? He noted he opposed the Real ID bill at the state level after asking this question.

Question 4 is: Is it inefficient or ineffective. He said many bills are so poorly written they can’t be understood.

The last question is: Do we have the money to pay for it?

Rohrer said that during his 18 years he never violated the principles of his checklist. He said he soon had six other legislators following it, a number which had grown to 16 when he left office. There are 203 members in the State House.

There were as of last week six other conservative candidates seeking the nomination and they would likely split the vote amongst them leaving Welch to walk away with the prize.

Rohrer was asked if conservatives should present a united front.

“I would like them to consolidate around me,” he said. He noted that he had more volunteers than any other campaign.
