Thoughts on how an ordinary citizen can make a difference by strengthening faith in God, family, and country.
Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

I stepped out my front door this morning to pick up my newspaper and found myself lying at the bottom of my steps a few seconds later. I didn't notice the thin, frozen layer of fog on the steps and, therefore, didn't take appropriate precautions. I am fortunate that I came out of my experience with only a sore muscle on my upper arm.
I believe that our nation is currently treading on a slippery surface and that we could find ourselves in trouble soon. The slippery surface that I am speaking of is political correctness, multi-culturalism, and plain, old fashioned corruption. I believe that we have known and unknown traitors within our country who are trying to destroy the United States in order to bring about a world government.
I believe that political correctness keeps us from identifying those who enter our country illegally. According to the political correctness police, we now have to call "illegal aliens" by the new name of "undocumented immigrants." Why? They are here illegally! Why not call them what they are? Why are we giving them a voice in our government? I believe that our nation is being over-run by Mexicans who are not interested in becoming citizens of the United States because they remain loyal to Mexico. I also believe that there are people from other nations coming into our country through Mexico. We built the Alaska Highway 1500 miles through Canada to Alaska in a couple of years at most. Why is it taking so long to build a fence between us and Mexico?
I believe that our main-stream media is corrupt because they print only the information that the government wants us to have. When the ACORN story broke, the media kept quiet about it until forced to acknowledge the news. The news concerning the leaked e-mails about the corruptness of the climate-change program broke more than two weeks ago. I haven't yet read or heard anything about it from the regular media people. Anyone who wants to know what is really happening around us needs to be watching Fox News and/or listening to talk radio because the main stream media isn't telling us what we need to know.
Our government is no longer supporting those who are protecting our nation. CIA agents are being outed and tried for doing the jobs that we sent them to do. Our soldiers at Fort Hood were killed and injured because no one wanted to point the finger at a Muslim who was serving as an Air Force major and went on his own personal jihad.
Now we have Navy Seals on trial because they were doing their job in Iraq. They caught a known terrorist who killed Americans, drug their bodies through the streets and then hung them from a bridge. The Seals are being tried because the terrorist complained that he received a bloody lip from his captors.
Today I heard the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff tell troops headed to Afghanistan that they must be careful to obey the rules of engagement because otherwise they could be prosecuted. I cannot imagine General Eisenhower or General Patton telling World War II troops anything of the sort! World War II was won because our troops had the full force of the United States government and its people behind them. I am sorry to say our troops no longer have our government's full support because we aren't fighting wars to win. Our President just uses our troops for "photo opts" and to make it look like he is doing his duty. If this nonsense continues, I expect that our volunteer military will dwindle to the point that the draft will need to be activated again. I cannot understand why any thinking person would put his or her life in the hands of this administration. I am grateful that my son's time in the military will soon be over!
Our President goes around the world apologizing for America. When he isn't apologizing, he is bowing. He can't seem to understand that he is the President of the most powerful nation in the world! He recently took three months to make a decision about what to do in Afghanistan and then gave almost the same identical speech that he gave earlier in the year. He made a big show of telling the world that he was sending 30,000 more military members to Afghanistan - not the 60,000 requested by the general in the field though - and then in the next breath said he would began pulling them out in eighteen months. What kind of an idiot broadcasts his battle plans to the enemy? I cannot imagine any football or soccer coach telling the opposing team, "Our team won't be on the field during the second half of the game. We're going home early!"
This President has surrounded himself with people who hate America, some of whom are self-avowed communists and Marxists. He is either really stupid or he has an evil plan to destroy America. I believe there is a plan that is slowly being put in place by people behind the scenes to take away the power of America and make it like other nations in order that a world government can be put in place. I believe that we all need to be alert and watch our steps. Otherwise, we may find ourselves flat on our backs looking up into the faces of our enemies.
I am a grandmother who is concerned about the direction our country and world are headed and what my grandchildren will inherit. I want to do my part to bring peace on earth and sanity to our insane world.
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
