I've always been interested in history but was never a political junkie until recently, when the world started to go haywire. Truth to tell, the process has been simmering along for quite a few years, but now seems to be at peak haywire. As a Mom of five grown children and grandmother of 3 so far, I would much prefer to live in boring times where conservative decency prevails, but that's not the world we've got. I came here in frustration over the loss of that world, in hopes of finding like-minded people who have ideas for repairing a broken society. Since U.S. history is my field, I know that Yankee ingenuity and the wise structure given us by our founders has pulled us out of many scrapes in the past. I hope it will again. As a Christian, I have faith that right will prevail, but I'd sure like to see my kids and grandkids spared the pain of going a long way down the current destructive path.
