I know I've been MIA for a while, but I'm back with a different emphasis. I started this blog three years ago to be a central collection site for the reviews I write for various publications. And I'm leaving those reviews here.
But longtime readers noticed how I got caught up in this current election and began posting about it. Well, the election is over (actually not in Georgia or Minnesota, but I digress), and I'm pretty disappointed with the results. Instead of throwing my hands up, however, I'm taking the opposite tack and keeping informed and getting involved to make sure our country doesn't go the way I fear under the current powers in Washington. And to make sure it doesn't happen again in 4 years ...
The current president-elect essentially began his run for president with his speech at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. Seemed to work out well for him.
This year Sarah Palin gave her own landmark speech at the Republican National Convention and though she has made no commitments for four years from now, there are several groups organizing on her behalf. These groups are also advocating action now for conservative causes, such as helping Senator Saxby Chambliss retain his U.S. Senate seat in the run-off election in Georgia, in addition to encouraging Governor Palin to consider a 2012 run.
We can't skip being involved in the next 4 years - or our country may be so changed that it's beyond fixing. For example, rumors are swirling that the president-elect is considering removing term limits for the President ... Not to mention bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, otherwise known as government censorship, and signing the Freedom of Choice Act, which removes any and all restrictions on abortion, including parental consent, partial birth abortions, etc.
So anyhoo, this blog will have a bit of a different slant for the foreseeable future. I hope others feel compelled to get involved as well. A government of the people, by the people, and for the people can only be as good as the people who get involved!!
To that end, let me conclude this post with a new Internet radio station courtesy of wsradio called Sarah Palin Radio. They've got two 30-minute shows up now interviewing people who have started TeamSarah.org and DraftSarahforPresident.com, groups that have over 60,000 and over 100,000 members respectively so far - a population growth that has happend AFTER the current election.
