Well healthcare has officially been signed into law and I have to say, that I almost cried. The country I served is slowly fading away to social networks, government handouts, immorality and a citizenry who believe they are owed something. Do not get me wrong, I believe healthcare needed to be overhauled, but not mandated by the federal government. I feel for those who struggle with healthcare coverage, but you are not alone. We go without healthcare coverage three months out of the year due to layoffs, but don't expect our friends and neighbors to pay our premiums or pick up the tab. Some states are going to try and fight this, but honestly I do not think this will work. The bottom line to change is to vote officials into office that are brave, patriotic and have moral character. Someone who believes in our constitution. Not someone who says they are these things, candidates that haven proven track records. If we do not vote God fearing men and women into office, nothing will ever change. I fear if we do not get it right in November, we will be at the point of no return. I am going to give you the list of those who voted yes for healthcare:

D-Steve Driehaus-Ohio 1 district
D-Marcia L. Fudge-Ohio 11 district
D-Marcy Kaptur-Ohio 9 district
D-Mary Jo Kilroy-Ohio 15 district
D-Tim Ryan-Ohio 17 district
D-Zachary Space-Ohio 18 district
D-Betty Sutton-Ohio 13th district
D-Charlie Wilson-Ohio 6th district

These elected officials must be voted out. There is good news for those in district 18. Zachary Space's term will be up in November and Dave Daubenmire wants to take his seat. Dave Daubenmire has a proven track record and is of the type of character that our country needs right now. For anyone that is interested, you can go to his page at http://coachdaveforcongress.com. Check out both links at the top of his page. This is some of the things that he stands for and he even beat the ACLU when he was sued by them, because he prayed with the team he was coaching before a game and they had to settle with him. We need someone with backbone, because cleaning up the mess in Washington is going to be very difficult.

Coach Dave’s pledge to the citizens of Ohio’s 18th congressional district:

1. Limit the size of government
We call for honesty in our government, limited to constitutional functions.

2. Protect our economic freedom
We call for a free-market economy, because it rewards hard work, creates jobs and maximizes human potential.

3. Practice fiscal responsibility, lower taxes and reduce spending
We call for lower taxes, less spending, an affordable government and the end of runaway deficits.

4. Stop Judicial Tyranny
We call for judges to be constrained by the Constitution and laws of the land.

5. Focus on national security
We call for a foreign and military policy that protects Americans, maintains our national sovereignty, secures our borders and insures our individual right to bear arms.

6. Acknowledge the centrality of faith in America
We call for the right to publicly acknowledge God.

7. Protect human life
We call for the protection of human life from conception to natural death.

8. Save traditional Marriage
We call for marriage to remain the union of a man and a woman, and we further call for families and parental rights to be strengthened.

9. Protect the rights of parents to control the education of their children
We call for educational expenditures to follow parental choice. It is time to abolish the
Department of Education.

10. Secure energy independence
We call for more exploration, development, production and use of all energy resources.

I am sorry if I have offended anyone with my opinions and political rant. But I feel part of prepping is keeping up with politics, because many of the bills being passed today are slowly taking away our freedoms and may cost us dearly in the pocket book and ultimately our liberties. If run away spending is not dealt with soon, we may be using our preps sooner rather than later.

God Bless,

Shelly, great job giving your folks info on who to vote for! We need change!

JF said...

I might be wrong (and I don't like him anyway), but I am pretty sure that Space voted against the health care plan

JF said...

Checked the votes - Zach Space did vote against, but John Boccieri (OH-16) did vote for it.

Shelly said...

JF- My apologies for the error. Thanks for rechecking this and apologize to all for the error. Thanks for stopping by.

Shelly said...

JF-BTW checked out your blog. Good reading!

In my area Kaptur is a god so having an Iott for congress sign in my yard is drawing some harsh looks... I LOVE IT!

Shelly said...

I think Iott has a good chance of reseating Kaptur. Lots of enthusiasm for him and he is gaining a lot of support. Only time will tell. Thanks for stopping by!
