Welcome to my new blog! I hope that you participate in this open discussion of issues facing Americans today. I will limit this discussion to rational, intelligent posts - vulgar or abusive posts will be removed. Opposing views are welcomed, but I ask that when posting you tell us WHY you believe the way you do. "Just because" is not a rational or intelligent reason for a position on important issues; The why is important.
My position is that of a conservative Christian point of view. I have a strong belief in Jesus as my Savior - so I am pro-life, but I believe in certain exceptions. I am a gun owner and believe it is my constitutional right to do so. I believe in the rule of law. That being said, I am a compassionate conservative. I have volunteered thousands of hours with a victim services agency, I donate money to other community service agencies and my career is in public service.
I am happily married, a parent and a taxpayer. I believe that elected officials have an obligation to serve the constituency - not themselves. I am an educated Southerner that does not believe that geography determines IQ. I live in the real world and feel that plans, expectations and agendas should be realistic. I hope that you will join me in rational discussions about issues that effect you and me alike.
