|Our nation is in distress.|

I don't begrudge a minority candidate at all. I would have no problem with a Democrat such as former Virginia Governor Lawrence Douglas Wilder being president. Color is not what it has been about for me. It never was, and likely never will be.
A bit more than four years ago, I ordered Barack Hussein Obama's books from www.half.com and I read them. He's not a bad person, he simply believes different things than I. He believes that a US National Health is needed. He believes that people should be forced to buy the health insurance he indicates. He believes that the federal government needs to be more powerful. He believes in plans and programs which lean toward socialism. I simply don't.
I believe that most times, the states themselves know what is best for their own geography, their own situation, and their own citizenry, and that those running the states are elected by the people. I believe that most of the time, the people know what is best and can do it. When someone is not doing well, most of the time, others step in and help, churches especially. I don't think US government NEEDs to be intrusive.
Also four years ago, when two of our children were attending Virginia Commonwealth University, prior to their graduations, they were asked by other students who they planned to vote for. They said that they did not discuss politics. One of them was told, "Anyone who doesn't vote for Obama deserves to be dead." and "If you don't vote for Obama, then you are dead". Of course, this is absurd. No one has any way of verifying who you voted for, however the threat is there.
Have we reached a tipping point in our country where the people who don't read, don't understand, and know nothing about socialism or history vote in such large numbers that we are powerless to fix the changes which the Obama regime has created in the past few years ? We have shifted from a nation of innovators and creators in business and industry to a nation of those who cannot think for ourselves, and who depend on a media with equal intellectual impairments to do this for them. Continued debt and a foray into sub standard health care will kill our country, if Iran, and other forces do not. Will we head to the same destination as Greece is now ? Will there BE a United States in another four years ? I certainly hope so, because I have invested all of my life in it, as have my husband and all of my kids.
It's certainly time to prep in anticipation of very difficult times ahead.
