Over the last 8 months, I have grown so disgusted with the Republican leadership that I have almost completely stopped reading and watching anything to do with politics. After winning the mid-term election last November in landslide proportions, the Republicans in Congress and the Senate have essentially abdicated all authority and responsibility. They have gone out of their way to woo Obama and have given him even more authority over aspects of power that no president should have.
Out of disgust, I have washed my hands of the frauds in the federal government who are more concerned about securing their own re-elections and lining their own pockets than they are with stopping the downward spiral that this country is in. I am looking for someone who can inspire me and make me believe in America's greatness again.
So, despite conservative friends and family who express skepticism, I am finding myself intrigued by and drawn to Donald Trump as the candidate whom I could consider supporting for President in 2016. I have listened for the last 4 or 5 years as he has spoken up on issues that party-loyal politicians are afraid of, such as the Obama birth mystery and birth certificate forgery, the craziness of a porous southern border, and the Chinese manipulating their currency to an extreme that it is affecting our economy. So, I am taking a good hard look at Mr. Trump.
Apparently I am not the only one either. The two women in this video are making a splash on the internet through their recordings. If Trump can appeal to both parties on the premise that we need to restore America to greatness, he has a chance of winning. These ladies make me laugh, and they make sense. Their website with their other videos on it is at www.WeBeSisters.com. Check it out.
I am an informed Catholic voter, as my blog's name suggests. For that reason, the people being interviewed in this video scare me. Beyond words. They are why we are in the mess we are in today in the U.S.A.
As a Catholic Voter, I am competitive. And I am here to ask for your help, Treasured Readers.
A dear family friend is in a battle to fulfill the dream of his young life. Jaelan Sanford is a senior in high school in Evansville, IN. He can win tickets to go to the Final Four in Indianapolis in a few weeks if he wins an online contest at https://highschoolslam.com/mens/3pt, sponsored by American Family Insurance.
Jaelan currently has a lead in this final round, but his opponent has cut the lead by 15 percentage points since just last night. Each of these young men has won three rounds to get to this final round, so the lead that Jaelan has right now can evaporate completely in just hours.
Please consider going to the link above and voting for a wonderful young man to fulfill his dream. You can vote every day from now until next Tuesday, March 17. You can even Tweet your vote and let others know you voted. Add me into your tweet as @CatholicVoter1!
And while you are there on the website voting for Jaelan, feel free to click over to the slam dunk contest. I encourage you to vote there for Kyle Ahrens, who is a good Christian student from Ohio battling for his own trip to the Final Four.
The winner will be announced on March 18, which just happens to be my birthday!
Please pass along this request! Thanks for your consideration!
