Course Correction

It seems we are on a course correction in this country.

We’ve let the far left have a chance; we are good about taking turns in this country, but alas, finally, we’ve found it to be the wrong course. I could have told you as much.

Whether the far left likes it or not, we are traditionally a “center right” country. Here is the Gallup from October 26th of this year:
Gallup Poll

We like limited government, and maximum freedoms. We like to run our lives according to the dictates of our own conscience, and we like others to do the same. We like to give a hand up, not a hand out.

We believe in freedom of choice, but once you’ve made that choice, you should live with it, and make the best of it.

We believe we are the best ones to decide how our money should be spent, and who should receive it.

We believe we have the right to own a firearm, to discharge it in the protection of our homes and families; to guard against tyranny of all sorts.

We gave the Democrats a chance, they stuck us with a far, far left ideologue, in a word, a Marxist, and the tides are turning. The most recent Gallup poll from today, shows that 48% to 44% people-largely independents, are planning to vote Republican.

Well wahoo. The only thing that’s good about this will be watching the left go batty. It’s not a good thing, if we just hire a democrat lite for our next elected official, whoever he may be.

Did you see the fiasco in New York 23 by any chance? The Republican candidate, had taken money from Acorn, was pro abortion, and endorsed the DEMOCRAT when she dropped out of the race. This is NOT the kind of Republican we need.

We need solid CONSERVATIVES to come to the fore,(NOT solid Republicans, there is no such thing anymore) and lead this nation back to peace and prosperity; back to limited government, and Constitutional principles.

It’s going to take some research, some footwork and some letter writing campaigns, but I believe firmly there ARE genuine conservatives out there; those willing to fight for right, because make no mistake, it IS about right vs. wrong, not right vs. left.

Pay attention to your elected officials. If you feel that a candidate is a true conservative, then open a dialogue with them. Go to the Town Halls and other forums where they are speaking. Go to their offices, make appointments with them. Get to know them. Find those conservatives who hold the same values as you. You don’t have to agree with them on everything, but if you agree on 75-85 percent of the issues, then that’s a pretty darn good indication that they will be someone you can feel confident about voting for. And, if you find they are trying to subvert the Constitution, make sure they know they'll be fired.

We can maintain this course correction but it will take all of us, and it will take time and effort; it can be done, and I believe firmly God will be on our side.
