Where have I been? Election 2012

Posted by Carmen Ledford on Saturday Nov 10, 2012 Under Claire, Cobey, Homeschool, Kid's Corner, Politics

Well, I just looked and the last trip I posted about was when we went to Detroit over Labor Day Weekend. We have done a few things since then as you can imagine. The kids and have knocked on doors, made phone calls, participated in a sign wave, worked early polls and been to rallies across the state. One of my favorite was when we saw Rick Santorum in Gastonia. I loved his speech which gave a history lesson and have so much respect for him.  I enjoyed the almost three hour drive there and back. Meg Hanna and Cobey counted signs on the way there and watched Obama 2016 on the way back. They had some great conversations that made me smile. We also went to a rally in Smithfield with Governor Chris Christie. This was a turning point for Claire. Before that event Claire like to go to HQ to socialize but did not show much interest in politics.  After the event, Claire was quoting politicians and wanted to go to more rallies. The day before the election we went door to door and she wanted to go to every door. She may be giving Cobey a run for the money.

Election Day was not all what we had hoped for. First, I don’t believe this was God’s will for us because  I don’t believe God’s desire is for us to have a president that promotes homosexuality, kills babies and turns his back Israel. However,  I do believe God is sovereign and allows things to happen like I as a parent allow natural consequences to happen to my children in hopes they will learn a lesson. I can’t help but wonder how bad it will get to learn this lesson The fraud that I am hearing about is disturbing- counties with 141% turnout and precincts that went 100% for Obama. It really makes it hard to put the thing to rest. I am praying that the House of Representatives will slow Obama down or Mike Farris’s plan of states rights will make a difference. I believe if things continue as they are we will have huge wins in mid-term and take back the Senate. I have worked with so many great patriots across this country that I know we are not ready to back down and let our freedoms die. I continue to have hope. I TRUST that God will take care of me and my family. I will be praying daily for Obama. I pray he has a change of heart on some issues and has DIVINE wisdom. We need to be stand guard against the UN Treaties and fight them with everything we can. We need to start working to mid-term elections. We must Pray Fight Work and that is what I will do.


On a much happier note, my state is now red. We for the first time to have a Republican Executive, Legislative and Judicial branch. I am so excited to have Pat McCory as our new Governor and Justice Paul Newby back on the Supreme Court. My friends Jonathan Jordan and Mike Stone will be headed back to NC House. Another friend Frank Williams won his county commissioner seat.  I am pleased to have Kirk Smith as County Commissioner and Mary Wells as a new judge. I will be MOST excited when they officially make Dan Forest the winner of the Lt Gov race. We have worked long and hard on that race. I don’t understand how you can elect Pat McCory as Governor and Elaine Marshall as Secretary of State. It can ONLY be explained by uninformed voters because Ed Goodwin would have served us well. And if hard work and integrity would have won the day then Cathy Wright would be serving in the NC House but it does not work that way. Overall, it was a good day and I think we have a great group to work with. Now to tell you what else I have been up to….
