Super Tuesday

In my neck of the woods, lots of people are going to vote today. Twelve or so southern states are holding their presidential primaries today, so around here it’s been politics for days. And no matter your political party or affiliation or bent or beliefs, I just ask that you please consider what this country was built on.

Our successes have come from hard working rebel stock, people who chose to forge ahead during hard times, who loved freedom, and who longed for the ability to worship or speak however they wanted. Our country was founded on truths that we hold to be self-evident, that all men are created equally.

 We live, in my humble opinion, in a awesome country. We have lost some of our verve and sparkle, but we can get it back. Whoever you vote for, I hope that you consider whether they are a defender of freedom or not. I hope you decide based on facts and research, not flash or rhetoric. The truth seems to get lost in the noise of the political ads and mud-slinging, but I think it’s there under the layers of muck.
Let’s do a good job, America. Let’s think about how we can turn things around during this political season and who will help lead us to do that. I’m praying for guidance for us all, and my hope is we will understand what’s at stake. Blessings, let’s keep it real y’all!!!

  1. I too am very concerned about our country. I appreciate your post and feel like your words have extra weight as you and your family have sacrificed in ways that many of us can just begin to understand. To your husband…I sincerely thank you for your service. To you (and your kids)…thank you for supporting him.

  2. I agree with ighiggins and would first like to thank your husband for his service and the sacrifices all of you have made to keep this country safe and strong.
    I pray that Americans find it in their hearts to do the right thing and that those who claim to know what this country needs delivers on their promises and doesn’t use this platform and office simply to satisfy their egos. We can only hope.
    Great post.
