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.

Voters in Massachusetts made a very loud and clear statement today when they elected Scott Brown, a moderate Republican, to fill the Senate seat held by the late Ted Kennedy for nearly fifty years. Brown will be the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts since 1972.
Brown's election makes him the 41st Republican in the Senate and breaks the 60-vote majority that the Democrats have held for the past few months. This could make a big difference in our nation because Brown campaigned on voting against Obamacare.
This was a HUGE achievement. Many people are hoping that it will be enough to save our nation from the progressives who are trying to take it away from us. If nothing else, it is causing other Democrats to evaluate their position in politics.
Even though Brown is a moderate, he ran on conservative principles. His win shows that conservative principles are what the people want. I hope that Brown sticks with the conservative principles that he campaigned on and doesn't move to the left!
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.
