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.
