My frustrations with some in this group were when I posted something I was immediately attacked, so I am thinking I just will remove myself from this group. I have my feelings about certain things that I know are going on because our family is feeling it! I love this country and am afraid for its future and that of my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. I feel it already, see it coming, and can't understand why it is continuing without anyone stopping it. There are three different taxes that have increased for us this month already and shortened our paychecks. My husband will probably have to work for many more years and he is 71, but we still have two young children to feed and clothe and all that. I am helping by homeschooling them so we won't have to pay for private school anymore which we had been doing. Our public schools are not great and lots of things are going on with them, just not suitable for special needs children. We are all doing our share. More and more families are becoming preppers because they fear for their future, we are not preppers, but maybe it is not a bad idea to prepare a little.

Maybe people fear another McCarthy time (Red Scare)! I think we are going backwards not forwards. That doesn't mean people can't disagree with my views, but my views are my experiences and what I research when I read about something. But anyway, my life in this group may be short-lived. :)

I understand how you feel doriselm and hope you don't leave. There are some rude intolerant people in here, but I just ignore them. I agree with much of what you are saying here and encourage you to homeschool. If you need someone to talk to please pm me.  I homeschool, and working on prepping since I saw something on television not too long ago.  I thought it was a good idea.

I am sorry that your husband is 71 and needs to work many more years because of young children. How old are you and do you work outside the home? If you're younger, maybe it would make sense to switch roles. I can not imagine having a family to support at 71- or needing to work.

Well, stick to your guns.  I, as a conservative have been called many names.  All, I want is the truth and critcal thinking but most women really don't do the research or think before posting.  Reading one article and passing it off as truth doesn't cut it.  McCarthy had a clear vision and saw what Russia was doing and went a little crazy, but so did Hollywood by being communists(not all of Hollywood).  You really have to think about history.  What happened in Russia with Stalin?  Then tell me why being a communist is good and think about what McCarthy saw.  Yes, he went way overboard, but understand history and economics.  Many women don't think, I am sorry.  Did you know Hillary Clinton was once a Republican, and got caught in a lie about Nixon.  That is why she left the Republican party and for her husband.  But, read and think.

Oh and btw, I just want you to know that this happens to everyone here no matter what your political views are.  the "republicans" here do the same thing as the "democrats" (I use these terms loosely since we do not know the true political ideations of any member here).

 Those of us that are in this minority feel as you do.

Don't let 'em get to you, stay and fight the good fight and stand up for what you believe.  They think they will knock us down and get us to see things their way by attacking us, but all it does is makes me stronger and more determined. 

We may be outnumbered, but we don't need to let them overtake us.

Starting to think I heart you, kisser so you know :-)

Never give up. Never back down. Stand up for whatever it is that you believe in, no matter what the topic is!

Of course, if you don't like the actions within a group, find a new one. I just started starting my own :-)

 Funny...I was just thinking that I heart this new chick here I just encountered this morning. 

I'm different, and sometimes controversial...but those that know me and GET ME find they love me.  ;)
