Time to take a stand

So... yesterday... when I was TOTALLY working...

I signed up on the McCain website. My new weekend activity will include me making phone calls and knocking on doors -- "Put the country first." It's time for CJ to take a stand.

Now, I have no idea who is reading this and I have no idea your political stand, but I just want you to know who/what I am standing for.

A couple of things provoked this new drive for me, but the one that is mostly on my mind:
I have a friend who will be out of the country for 2 years and I got to thinking, "What kind of America do I want him to come home to?"

Now, if you know me even a little bit you know that I am an All-American Girl. I LOVE AMERICA. What kind of America do I want? I want the kind of America where we stand up for what we believe in. I believe in an America where all people can thrive. I believe that government belongs in Washington and out of my kitchen (even though my kitchen is pretty close...). I believe that all babies deserve to be born - no matter the form they were conceived or the form they may enter the world (be it deformed, disabled or disfigured). I believe that all CITIZENS deserve a good education and opportunities to improve their situation. I believe marriage to be defined as a relationship between a man and women - without any deviation, whatsoever. I believe, as Americans, we should never be content to take hand-outs (our welfare program is seriously messed!!) and that would should always be seeking way to give back what we have been given. I believe that we are, in deed, endowed with certain inalienable rights. I believe God has truly blessed - and continues to bless - America. We as American citizens owe it to one another to stand up for what we believe is right. Whether you agree with me on all, some or none of my beliefs you have a right and a duty to find out who is your best candidate is, what you believe in and then fight the good fight.

Let's "get out the vote."
