Our nation has reached a critical stage in its ongoing evolution. We are dangerously close to becoming a socialist country (think Venezuela). We elected President Trump because he promised to get us back on the path our Founders intended. He has been working to do that but it’s been slow and difficult because much of Congress and the federal courts have fought him every step of the way.

Many voters think that their vote won’t change much. Nothing could be further from the truth. If everyone in the country who is eligible to vote actually did so, those in government would stand up and take notice. They would suddenly renew the respect they owe us.

If the voters are to retake control of our government and our destiny, we must change the way we look at the available candidates. Whether our political preference is liberal or conservative, we must seek out candidates who will stand by their oath of office. Most importantly, we must vote. Even if we all turn out and vote for honorable candidates, it will take a minimum of three two-year election cycles to change our federal government for the better and it all starts in November 2018.
