what is really on the line November 8th?

A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground. Then it is done. No matter how brave its warriors or how strong its weapons.

Cheyenne proverb

We cannot be distracted by the noises that surround us. The Republican Party seeks to conquer our hearts by controlling our bodies.

I Voted this week to say Not on My Watch. Plan your vote. We are not done.

    My heart is nailed to the sword of justice. We will prevail, and if not in the voting booth, on the streets. This old lady stared down 2 good ol’boys loitering at our drop off box, the only one in western Montgomery Co. I stared at those 2 greasy rednecks until they retreated into their battered pick up, then I voted. Damn them! They will not intimidate us.
