This year we are choosing who our new elected officials are but you would think that we are choosing who will be the lesser of two evils. I keep getting call after call about who I am going to vote for, what way I am leaning and even asking if I were blue or red. You know what? I am an American citizen of the United States of America. That used to mean something when you said it but not any more. Not when you think of all of the infighting that happens in our government and on our streets.
Proud to be American and Made in the USA used to mean a lot, that is till it was made to be us versus them, or states versus federal or corporate versus small business and rich versus poor.

Put your party affiliation aside and vote every incumbent out for the future of our country… Take Henry Ford’s advise…Don’t find fault, find a remedy.

Our country has many problems that it is facing today. We have multiple wars, massive dept and a Congress that loves to do nothing other then argue with each other and focus on things that really have no bearing on the average citizen.
