@AmericanhyphenAmerican @LisaJones I tried to sign up as a poll worker here in Maryland but found out you have to sign up months before the primary, which we've already had. I'm looking into being there simply as a volunteer, because poll workers are paid positions. I don't care if I get paid or not. My voting place is pretty tame, though - just a bunch of older men and women watching, BUT I have never had anyone verify my legitimacy as a voter. I've offered ID, only to be told, "oh, we don't need that, honey!" As least ask for my voter's registration card!! I post everything I can on fb (which has gotten me blocked by several people), I talk and talk and talk and watch people's eyes glaze over because they can't see any farther than what is right in front of them. Everyone is so caught up in their daily struggles to make it from one day to the next, they can't see what comes in the next year, or the next 5. They don't BELIEVE what is there if they just would take the time to look. I can't travel to go to a lot of events because it's expensive and I'm helping my 2 adult children who can't survive on their own in this economy, plus 5 strays/shelter animals we've taken in rather than see be put down, and my own income is worth about 2/3 of what it was 2 years ago (plus no raise in over 3 years). I write letters, and sign petitions. Though it's hard sometimes, I donate what I can to the cause. I don't know what else I can do, except what I am doing. I guess I'll just keep on keeping on, and pray for the best. One thing - I DO wish I had a weapon or 2 or 3 lol! I live awfully close to Baltimore City, and the crime there is horrendous, and spreading out to the surrounding county, which is where I am. By the time I've got enough put aside for that, they will not be selling guns to ordinary citizens. Not to mention Maryland has not very friendly gun laws. Getting a permit to carry is next to impossible here (hmmmm Martin O'Malley, Obama's long lost white brother, need I say more???) I've been saying for 3 years now he wants a shot at the WH in 2016, and he's cut from the same fricken cloth as Obama - hands as deep in your pockets as he can get them, just to pass it on to his cronies!!
I pray daily our country will survive this all out assault on our freedoms, liberties, and what this country truly stands for. I just don't understand why people want to take such a beacon of hope for the world and turn it into just another 3rd rate country. And even less do I understand why our elected officials seem to want this, as well. Apparently oaths mean little to nothing to them, the president, our governors, the police, and I hesitate to add military, and won't, because I've seen a lot of postings by military personnel who just may not go along with the program when the time comes.
God help us all!!!

@AmericanhyphenAmerican Wow, you just put everything in my heart to words in a way I have never been able to. Thank you for that. My awakening came about 4 years ago, and I have been teaching myself and learning everything I can. I have tried to educate others, and for a very few, it has worked, but the others... well, I'm some crazy Obama-hating loon. I will not stop trying to help others see what they are too afraid to see.
@grumpytees I hear you grumpytees! People are starting to look at me like I've got 2 heads or something. They think I'm obsessed, even my own family! They all stick their heads in the sand and just don't understand the jeopardy our country, and therefore we, are in! Well, they can keep looking at me like that, because I'm not going to stop talking. If I can wake up just ONE person - and I'm pretty sure I've reached a few of them, even if it's just getting them questioning and not accepting the pablum they're being spoon fed by the MSM - well, it's worth it to look like some obsessed crazy person who sees conspiracies everywhere she turns. Only thing is - it's really happening!!
