Tomorrow is the big day, the end of a very long election. (At least is seemed long for me because I was involved in it).
I was looking at the news today and came across an article titled, The morning after: Half of us will be disappointed. It's true, there will be many disappointed fans tomorrow. This article got me thinking.
My advice to you readers is to support our new president tomorrow, even if he wasn't your #1 choice. I think this is something everyone should decided to do now.I think being patriotic is about having different thoughts and ideas, and supporting the president. Lets do it, lets agree to disagree and then get things done!

Yesterday Utah Valley University hosted a same-sex marriage debate between panels. Opposing same-sex marriage was Dr. Loveless from BYU and an alumni student from UVU. In favor of same-sex marriage was Cheryl Jacques former state senator from Massachusetts, and a student at the school who was also the president of the Gay-Straight alliance there.
What I wanted to know was if anyone here had attended and what you thought about the debate.
I understand that UVU will be putting video of the debate online so that people who missed it can watch it.
You need to watch this video, it is an outrage!
So the Presidential debate was on every single “broadcast” network this past Friday. I watched a good portion of the the debate. Anyone else catch the debate?
I have to say that I have always considered myself conservative (very conservative), however, NOT republican (at least not right now). I’m not so sure Republicans are upholding the conservative values that they should be. Anyway, I also consider myself a “swing voter.” I can’t seem to settle just yet on who I’m going to vote for.
Back in the early 90’s the World saw the power of the United States military when it cut through the 5th largest world military (Iraq) in less than 100 hours. This proved to the rest of the world that we did in fact have the most powerful and technologically advanced military in the world. But has this fear made for a more motivated enemy?
Recently, and less projected by the media, Russia made prior attacks on the country of Georgia simply by hacking into all of their government systems and shutting them down. This was then followed by military fire power which we all know about.
It seems to me the truly conservative thing to do about the marriage debate
is to make it private.
Marriage originated with God. What business does government really have in defining marriage anyway? Private marriage would completely separate marriage from government, doing away with its benefits for married people, gay or straight. That way anyone could get married who wanted to, religious or not, since many churches are accepting of homosexual lifestyles and don't require much if any commitment to their particular faith.
Plus, religious freedom would be preserved, particularly the ability of religions to discriminate based on their beliefs (As we speak religions are already losing in court for not turning over their facilities to same sex weddings, for example). With this arrangement government would not be empowered to set then climate for our whole society; Marriage would be between two people and their God or non-God, as it should be.
