83, married, many children, more grandchildren, some great grandchildren, retired, at one time an avid golfer, now more than ever an avid conservative, one who believes an out of control and over controlling government is the reason we are in such a mess, that this out of control began during the FDR years and grew relatively slowly until Obama came along and raised that out of control bar to a new, faster and disastrous level. Have always voted Republican, but do not excuse the behavior of Republican's, they have contributed almost as much to the current mess as Democrat's. Wish it was otherwise. Ever since the huge defeat of Goldwater by Johnson, the Republican's have lost their way, the way of conservatism. Believe that we have placed too much trust and faith in man and not near enough trust and faith in God. Thus, our path is headed for darkness, rather than light. The road ahead will be full of bumps and turns. Only time will tell if we have the resolve and perseverance to meet the challenge. Will we remain the Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free? Or become the home of the fearful and the land of the regulated?
