The Point

I titled this post "The Point" because I'm going to talk about the point of this blog.
As this Presidential election is coming up I have been watching the candidates closely and how they are doing.  Now I'm not going to say who I am voting for because that is NOT why I'm starting this blog.  I'll tell the reason in a minute, but I wanted to say that my husband, son age 13, and I have had some fun discussions about politics lately.  You may be thinking, "Fun political there such a thing?"  Well, when you're all on the same page, then yes, they can be fun.  I also realized, however, that I don't know the constitution like I could and that's is why I'm starting this blog. Especially because this election is going to be one of the most important elections of our lifetime.
What I want to do is talk about each part of the constitution and memorize it.  Mmmm, not really memorize it so much as just know it like the back of my hand.  I think it is especially important for everyone to know the Constitution really well in these times, so we can make good, educated decisions about our future and our children's future.  I also want my own children to be brought up in a home where correct principles are being taught, but also I want them to feel like they can make their own choices in life.  Although it's scary to send our kids "out in the world", it's also important for them to experience those situations, makes their own choices, learn from those choices and just have a life outside of their home so when they are ready to go away from home they will be ready.
So I hope this blog makes an impression and you all enjoy it.
