Taking a Break

When I started this blog, I imagined I had an unlimited number of things on which to comment. For a few months I did, but then we had an election and the nation began to quickly slip into socialism while politics transformed into nothing more than a mud-slinging hate contest. I’ve become totally disgusted with the evil Democrats and the spineless Republicans, and I don’t even want to talk about them anymore. I’ve tried writing several political entries recently, but have given up in frustration.

There was a time in my youth when I was an old school Democrat, but my opinions matured when I saw what their tax and spend policies did to our nation. I evolved and eventually moved my allegiance to the Republican Party, but over the years, it became what the Democrats used to be…spendthrifts and power-hungry liars. Instead of two parties that put America first and forgot our differences on the nation’s shores, we now have one party that wants to turn our country into a new version of the old Soviet Union, and a leaderless party that doesn’t have a clue how to prevent the destruction from happening...a pox on all their houses!

To make a long story short, I’m taking a break from blogging until the American public makes a decision. The Texas legislature also convenes in January and there are several state sovereignty issues on the agenda. No matter who wins the election, I expect Texas to become a leader in efforts to wrest power from Washington, and it could get ugly very quickly.

If “we” are smart enough to clean house in November, there might be a chance to resurrect our country from the depths of bankruptcy and collectivism, but if the Democrats retain control of the legislative branch and pursue their current agenda, I fear we could see the beginning of a new civil war…and Texas could be at the center of the maelstrom.

The time has come to quit talking about the mess we are in, and to begin doing something to fix it. To that end, I intend to concentrate my energies and my interests, so blogging is one of the things that will have to take a back seat for the time being.

Heartfelt thanks to my regular readers.
