To the undecided voter

Did you know that when servicemen vote they only count in the popular election, their votes are not added to their home states totals to decide on the Electoral College?

Wow Joyce that was really long but well worth the read. TFS. Before reading it I already knew who I'm voting for; this just reaffirms what I already know is right. If only I could get my family to listen. (damn mexicans, lol!)

Good stuff here. You know I believe because most people of my generation and younger were taught a "politically correct" version of history and government that we don't even know what is at stake here. Hey, I don't like the people who scream and yell and are so one sided on talk radio. But, really....imagine....three Supreme Court Justices stand to probably be choosen by our next President and that will have impact on our lives for generations to come. If you think we are getting too much "legislation" from the bench now...just wait!
Now this is a scary thought, think with me......why did Hillary seem to give up so easily right at the end? Some kind of brokered deal is my bet, how about you? What might this deal be.....well....lets see here.....United Nations representative from the United States.....or.....Justice of the Supreme Court. Scares me! How 'bout you????

Oh Barbara, hadn't thought of that!!! Scary indeed.

The end of entrepreneurial endeavors, discoveries, investments could be upon us. And that will be the end of our nation as the Constitution set it out to be.

I hadn't heard this quote in years, but it has been uttered many times lately:

"From each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs."

There are very few alive today that can remember a World War. How close the entire world came to losing freedom. Still many nations do not have freedom even now, but it used to be so much worse.

I thought 9/11 brought back the feeling that freedom is a precious and hard won privilege and right. Our Constitution gives us these rights. Do we have to lose them to once again appreciate the price?
