Only 31 words --- Think about it

Isn't life strange? I never met one Veteran who enlisted to fight for Socialism

It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.






If Muslims can pray in Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and erecting religious displays on their holy days?

Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having 'In God! We Trust' on our money and having 'God' in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe!

This is a photo of my DH, Ted. He is just one of our veterans.

I am very proud to be married to a Vet. I am very proud to be an American.

I will vote this year for the candidates of my choice.

I am asking each of you to VOTE.

If you are not registered, do so TODAY.

If you ARE registered, plan on voting your choices.

Voting is a PRIVILEGE, HONOR and DUTY.

    A woman after my own belief! My own family has a history of military service (WWII), my DH's father was a WWII vet and he himself served after Korea. Many many friends are Nam Vets and many many friends are or have family in or have been in Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan.

Bless them all for fighting for our freedom, for their courage to become our protectors!!

As for God. He listens, He knows...I am grateful to be at peace within His presence while saddened that the simplicity of His word is ignored as it would bring peace to so many!!

    Thank you to your husband and to all the men and women who have served to help give us our freedom. I agree, voting is a privilege, honor, and duty that we need to take seriously.

The pledge and our money acknowledges what our founding fathers recognized, that with out the help of God, our nation would never have been formed; we need to continue to do that today. I respect and uphold the right of people to worship and believe in whatever god(s) they choose, but that does not mean the references to God need to be removed; they don't tell anyone which 'god' to be under or trust in.

    Well, many of us believe in god, or gods, but not necessarily the Christian god. I think the issue is one of the founding tenants of the constitution - Separation of Church and State. I think that gets lost in alot of arguments. The government is supposed to be separate from any of its citizens religious beliefs. It can't ask us to subscribe to a certain, or to any faith. We are all free to believe what we want here. And that your god isn't necessarily my god, and that is OK. Making America a "Christian Nation" goes against the very founding of this country. America was started because people desired a place where they could not be told what to believe in.

A great thank you to your husband for his service. Both of my Grandpas served in WW2 and Korea.

    A lot of women suffered to give us the right to vote. We should all use it!
