Salute to the United States and our veterans


I remain optimistic about our nation, even as I see Valerie Jarrett, of Barak Obama's transition team, proclaim that he will be ready to "Rule" on day one.  This is fitting language for one who is hailed as "The messiah" of the liberal lunatic fringe.  And, even as I begin to understand the motives behind the Fairness Doctrine and why it is anything but "fair", I smile at the future.

No pressure, no diamonds, as a popular saying goes.  This campaign season has been the first one in a long time to motivate me to read and research the issues.  It's been the first campaign in my life where I believe we've had  two presidential candidates espousing such extremely opposing views on the future of this country, on the sanctity of life, on the role of government, and the finesse of foreign policy.  For honest Republicans, lovers of liberty, life and those who believe in upholding the U.S. Constitution, this time in our history has created the ideal soil in which to flourish. 

Booker T. Washington said, "Secure an education at any cost."   My prayer is that parents everywhere are teaching their kids about our nation's Founding Fathers, the wisdom in the U.S. Constitution and the countless lives that have been sacrificed to uphold our freedoms in the United States of America.  I am thankful I can worship, write my opinions, keep arms and educate my children without fear of government.  We should never take it for granted.

"Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it."  - Thomas Paine

THANK YOU to the men and women in uniform who serve and have served to protect our nation.

I remain optimistic also and I continue to remember our nation, our military & veterans, and our president in prayer. I did want to share with you that as I was driving in this morning I listened to Neal Boortz. He told his listeners about a group meeting in Washington to discuss the possiblity of confiscating personal retirement accounts to convert them into accounts to be managed by the social security administration. (You can read more at boortz.com in the Today's Nuze section.) While they are just discussing this and it may never happen, this is just not the America I know or would have ever dreamed that I could see in my lifetime.

Thanks much for the comment, Penny and especially for sharing the link. One thing's for sure, I will be vigilant over the next 4 years of our government like never before. In that regard, I'm thankful for an Obama presidency to awaken my slumber...

God Bless!
