Most of the time I find following politics to be a complete waste of time. First of all, I’m not sure there is much difference anymore between the good guys and the bad guys inside the beltway. Second, when I consult the modern media trying to sort out fact from fiction, I often get completely different summaries of the same event. Not just different summaries, but contradictory summaries.
Seeking the truth often makes my head hurt!
I’d like to just throw up my hands up in frustration and ignore the news but during this presidential election there is too much at stake. Let’s face it, like it or not early next year either Hillary or Trump will be our next president.

While delving deeply into various pro-abortion claims and Pro-Life rebuttals, he consistently encourages readers to remember that fundamentally the Pro-Life cause needs to be grounded on the fact that there is a universal human equality that applies to the unborn.

I usually wouldn’t blog on general politics, but in the wake of yesterday’s announcement by FBI Director James Comey to not refer criminal charges to the Justice Department against Hillary Clinton, I could not help but to react in writing.
