Do something….ANYTHING!

You know what astounds me….I mean what really amazes me…the American people’s total lack of concern about being lied to. Straight up LIED to.
We were first told “if ya like your plan you can keep it, ” we were also promised that our health insurance premiums (through the Affordable Care Act) would Decrease, when in fact, just yesterday Katherine Sebelius admitted that they will in fact -increase in the next year. INCREASE!
I don’t care which way you vote (as long as you know what the heck and who the heck you are voting for) But, it truly does concern me that people are like -“ya the President lied to us…ok…so what??”

LYING. This is NOT okay people!

You know WHY this matters….because we are saying it’s okay by NOT responding! We are saying it’s ok by not speaking up.
When we stay silent we are giving this injustice our own stamp of approval.

You wanna know why are politicians are a bunch of hypocritical liars and thugs in suits….cause We have allowed it!
We have gotten too busy with our little lives and in the whirlwind of it all, the integrity of our nation has been lost.
Hey I get it, life is crazy-it’s busy!
But in the midst of the present we MUST look ahead to the future.

Will our kids think we cared? What proof do we have to show them that we fought for a free America? We fought for justice? What evidence will we be able to show our children that we did not stay silent when we were lied to, we did not approve! America is screaming for help, as her Constitution is being torn from her body. She is begging for someone to stand up and stop this abuse!
We must stand up, we must speak up!
This is America we are talking about people. We are losing her. She is slipping right through our fingers and we are doing nothing….

What can you do? You’re crazy busy… you barely have time to take a shower, and put your feet up…before you hear ‘momma’ or ‘daddy’….I get it-I do!

So here is what I ask….here is what YOU CAN do.

1) Don’t stay silent. Being lied to…is not acceptable-period. When a political figure lies…no matter the party-call-them-out! Blog about it, write about it, tell your neighbor, tell your local paper…
2) Vote. Not just in your general election but in your PRIMARY, elections are won and they are lost in the primaries. If we do not send our strongest, fiercest, most qualified to Washington they will be nibbled to bits by the Parana that abide there.
3) Go to your caucuses -it’s a meeting of your political party-cannidates are selected and policies are decided on YOUR behalf-just show up!

I still have hope that all is not lost, if we the people….begin to say enough and demand for justice!

Have a say

When I look at my little 7 month old boy Bode, he has no worries or concerns…nothing that he stresses over-other than a poopy diaper, he simply trusts that I will take care of him and as he drifts to sleep at night without a care in the world….all is safe.

My job now as a mom, is to protect Bode at all costs and yes…that means making the right decisions today in hope for a brighter tomorrow. After my son was born in March, my concern for our country, the economy, our future as a nation became a major concern for me. As a kid we have no clue who is making the decisions for us and we really don’t care. But believe it or not, Capitol Hill plays a major role in my tiny little individual life and what they decide today…effects my child’s future.

When my father ran for United States Congress back in June…I had no clue what I would encounter….to say “ugly” would not be able to describe what our family went through. I could have shied away from the whole thing, simply said “politics” aren’t for me….but that would be giving in and I can’t….because I love my son too much.

This blog will speak on political issues, you at times might disagree…but that’s ok….what’s not ok is not caring….care!
