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.

Are You Conservative?
Are you conservative? Those people who previously called themselves "moderates" are moving right. Conservatives now make up the biggest percentage (36%) of Americans for the first time in a long time. Moderates make up the next largest percentage with liberals coming in with the smallest (20%). I suspect this much of this shift to the right is a direct result of Obama's policies.
I suspect that many of the previous moderates just simply didn't recognize that they were conservative until someone pointed out to them that they were conservative. This is the type of thing that happens when people become involved and knowledgeable. I might not have recognized that I was conservative without someone explaining what it meant to be conservative.
If you want to know if you are conservative, I suggest that you occasionally watch the Fox News Network, listen to talk radio, or read books such as Liberty and Tyranny - A Conservative Manifesto, by Mark R. Levin. Compare what you hear or read from a conservative source with what the left-leaning, main-stream media is telling you and then decide which side you agree with most. The basic description is: conservatives want the Rule of Law as given to us through the United States Constitution, and liberals want the Rule of Man. The Rule of Law gives us liberty and freedom while the Rule of Man brings bondage and tyranny.
Again, are you Conservative? If not, why not?
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.
