Confession # 1

This might not be a unicorn and rainbows post, but I need to get a few things off my chest, so you've been warned.  My political views come from a few different places.  Some come from my Christianity, some from good ol' common sense and some from the logical portion of my brain.  The one constant is that I will not sit back and let government control my life nor my actions without one hell of a fight.  The reason for this post is because I've been "unfriended" on facebook because of my convictions and broadcasting of them.  It bothers me because I thought they were good friends.  They live close by and their children are the same age as mine and we developed a friendship over the years.  I've heard the phrase if you haven't lost friends then you are not passionate enough but I still can't help but feel hurt.

I didn't really get into politics until the Obama/McCain match up but I always was well educated when it came to the candidates and what they stood for.  I have no respect for those that can't even take the time to research the basics and they do the country a grave injustice.

Luckily I wasn't around for the Great Depression but I don't want to see our country go down that road again.  This man they call president, (sorry but I refuse to acknowledge this man as anything but a lying, traitor and he should be impeached) has taken this once great country that is now a shell of what it should and could be.

There comes a time when you need to pull your big girl pants on and make a stand.  If others don't like it, then that is just too bad.  There are bigger issues right now and they deserve my attention.  You know, things like... the economy, taxes, gun control, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare,  budget, 16 Trillion debt, [ The list goes on I just don't have the time or energy to list everything this moron has done.]

I try to educate people because the MSM sure doesn't do it.  I feel it's my job to put it out there.  Too many people listen to CNN or MSNBC and take what they say as Gospel truth.  I know Fox News is slanted toward the right, but it is absolutely needed to say what the "liberal" media won't report.  We can't give in and we won't give up!  Our children's future is at stake here!

“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
― Martin Niemöller
