Afraid to Voice Your Political Opinion?

I am. I'm getting more vocal, but I've kept quiet pretty much to hubby the entire election season but I can no longer do so. I listen to his attempts to justify why I should vote for Mitt Romney.

Cincinnati also has a large African American population, the vast majority of which is not Republican....more

Still Undecided In Wisconsin During Troubling Times

I still haven't made up my mind who I am voting for, although, I'm leaning Democrat, as I've been all along. However, I would like to see another issue addressed by both candidates: Guns. And it's not going to happen, is it?Now I know that gun ownership and the right to bear arms is a constitutional right, but I don't think our founding fathers knew that there would be populations as high as ours are now in the cities of this great country and I surely don't think that they knew nut cases could and do own weapons....more

We Are Americans

Ok. So I know who I am voting for next week and you know who you are voting for. Nothing is going to change our minds. So let's make a deal. I'll stop telling you if you stop telling me. Instead, I am proposing we spend the next few days in prayer and contemplation for our country and for making the best decisions for our future. Whatever your belief system, pray that we elect the honorable and strong leaders that we need....more
