An Evolution

    I’ve been writing on Redstate since I was 17. During that time, I’ve grown up, graduated college, and now work as a registered nurse. I’m not the same person I was when I first came to Redstate. I don’t believe everything I used to; I have, for lack of a better word, evolved. I’m still a passionate conservative; I just found that my conservatism was | Read More »

    Kim Davis Is Wrong

    Kim Davis: the Rowan county clerk of court has been causing quite a stir lately by refusing to issue marriage licences to gay couples. She sites her Christian faith, and God’s authority for refusing to do so. Some have called her a martyr; she has been hailed as an example for conservative Christians. However, Kim Davis is not a martyr; neither is she a good | Read More »

    Donald Trump: The #1 Reason He’s Not Presidential Material

    Donald Trump. He’s not presidential material. Not because he’s crass, or hasn’t fully explained his platform. No, it’s a lot more simple than that. The real reason he shouldn’t be president is because he’s unashamedly selfish. Donald Trump made his billions being selfish.He is, in fact, extraordinarily good at being selfish, and looking out for only himself. He didn’t care who got hurt when his various businesses | Read More »

    This is Life and Death

    The 2012 election is not merely  another election. This is life and death. The life of our country as we know it, the life of our freedoms, and for some, the medical care they need to survive.  Mounting debts, Obamcare, and the liberal agenda threaten the very existence of America. We are deciding our future in this election. This fact hit me early this year: this election | Read More »

    A Time to Pray

    Amid all the joy this morning over Paul Ryan being picked for VP, I also know that he and his family are about to be put through the wringer. We all know that the liberal media will use anything-true or not- to tear down conservatives. I thought to write this short entry to encourage everyone to pray for Rep. Ryan and his family. I can’t | Read More »

    The Problem with our Liberal Friends…a Conversation about Misinformation

    President Reagan had it right when he said: “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.” A few days ago, I was having a conversation with a new friend. Somehow, we got on to the subject of politics. I believe it started with a discussion about Obama’s executive order pertaining to the | Read More »

    Rick W. Allen: A Man of Character (GA-12th Congressional Race)

    Georgia’s 12th district congressional race is heating up, as we are only 19 days out from election day. I have researched each candidate, and tried my best to decide who would best represent the 12th district . In the end my choice was clear. I’d like to share this with my fellow patriots in the 12th district here on Redstate. I decided to support Rick W. Allen. | Read More »

    Tales from the campaign trail (Whatever happened to just saying no?)

    Lately, I have been working with a local campaign to increase the candidate’s visibility to the public. So, yes, this includes lots of phone calls asking property owners if we could please put a sign up on their property, since in my state, it is illegal to place signs on the right of way. I get all kinds of answers, but eventually they all boil down to a | Read More »

    A Call to Action for Perry Supporters

    I have and will always feel that Gov. Perry is the best man to lead our nation at this time. Period. I know what I’m about to propose is a long shot. Some would say I’m beating a dead horse. Maybe I am, and maybe I’m not. But I’m willing to fight for what I believe in, and for who I believe in. In my opinion, | Read More »

    The Resolve to Fight for Life

    I have to admit that I was quite discouraged after Gov. Perry suspended his campaign. In fact, I felt terribly disheartened about the whole process. However,  I have been infused with some new resolve. Last week, on my way to an appointment, I had some time to kill, so I stopped by a second-hand book store. One of my favorite topics besides politics is medicine. When I noticed a book about the | Read More »
