Been a year! but im back!

So Its July....AGAIN!. I have a few things to say to my fellow bloggers and whoever is interested in my rambling. The Election is coming our way again folks. I have shifted my opinion recently. Last month i had a clear and obvious candidate in mind, however, after consulting with a few people who I have grown to respect, my mind is made up. Those of you who are involved with politics or who are considering your candidate for 2012, feel free to let me know what you think. At first, i was 100% convinced we needed the man himself Ron Paul for our president. He supports the constitution like no one else! He is not afraid to take on huge tasks (like dismantling the Federal Reserve). He is nearly across the board a match for me on all the issues. I love that he was a very successful doctor and that he is a little older and in my opinion, the older they are, the less likely they are to be corrupted. All that being said, he seems like the perfect candidate for me Right? and after all, I did write him in the last ballot, simply because i am not a huge John McCain fan, and as far as Obama....well, we all know where i stood on that! Now...As someone pointed out to me, what we need at this time in our country is another Ronald Reagan type President, that can use people like Ron Paul in congress, to not only uphold the Constitution, but that would bring God back into government! thats right i said it! I stand by it! GOD NEEDS TO BE IN GOVERNMENT! normally i wouldnt intermingle my political views with religion, in fact, i dont think that i am. I feel i am merely taking Atheism out of it with my statement! Our forefathers all believed in a higher being, and they prayed to GOD in order to come together to form the greatest document in American History, The United States Constitution! They came up with this document under the direction of PRAYER and the common desire to be free from any Tyrant that wished to enslave them, namely their own government. Today, we face a similar tyrant in our own government, and the last thing we need to get rid of is GOD, therefore, here is who i believe, based on character, political views, religious views, Reagan-like qualities, that would be the best candidate for President today....MITT ROMNEY, and honestly, i never thought i would say that! I honestly believe we need to keep Ron Paul where he is in congress, as he is doing a great job for us there and he is honestly a more beneficial tool for the Tea Party in congress, rather than President. Mitt Romney has the charisma, and poise and all the qualities i look for in a president and as far as my research goes, he is the most like Reagan that i can see. So here it is...KEEP RON PAUL IN CONGRESS, and MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!
Now, on to some personal updates. We are all looking forward to some exciting times in the VanVleet household. Tommy Jr is ready for his first tackle football season, after playing baseball for Willis Jr high last year. He is looking forward to putting on the pads and getting rough. Now Davis and Brett, they are starting their 3rd football season and for the first time they will not be playing on the same team. All 3 boys are playing in the San Tan Youth Football League with the Six Shooters football club. I will have 1 boy in each age division and i will try to split up my time helping with each squad. I have a feeling that big things will happen with Brett and David as they love to strap it up and hit hard! the cool part is that Brett, and possibly David will be playing with their cousins in the QC. My cousin Mark has a couple kids that will be playing with my kids, We are very Excited for that.School is starting soon and Tommy is 13 (tomorrow) and going into 8th grade at Willis Jr high, Monique is 11 and getting ready to start soccer and she is going into 6th grade. Brett is 10, going into 5th grade and the youngest David, who just got baptized, is 8 and going into 3rd grade. they are all growing up fast and i am glad to see them all becoming great kids and I look forward the next year. For now, this is the update, and I promise to be better at keeping up my blog. Love ya all! time for a movie before bed!

Hey Tom, I like your political views. Have you looked at the video called immigration gumballs? It can be viewed at

If you like it please include it in your blog. I think everyone should view this video.

Keep spreading the word of conservatisim. The only other thing I would like to include is that We should replace all those that voted to extend the debt ceiling as I don't believe they are conservative enough.

Here is an example that helps to personalize the debt:

Federal Budget: $3,820,000,000,000 (3.82 Trillion)

Income: $2,170,000,000,000 (2.17 Trillion)

New Debt: $1,650,000,000,000 (1.65 Trillion)
Amount Cut: $8,500,000,000 (38.5 Billion) – about 1% of the total budget.
Harry Reid is calling this a “historic amount“. The President said it is a “historic deal”. John Boehner simply said, “We’ve come to an agreement”.

Let’s Put This In Perspective. It helps me to think about these numbers in terms that I can relate to.

Let’s remove nine zeroes from those numbers and pretend this is a monthly household budget for the fictitious Jones family.

Amount of money the “Jones`s” family spent this month: $3,820

Total income for the “Jones`s” family this month: $2,170
Amount of new debt added to the credit card this month: $1,650
Outstanding balance on the credit card: $14,271 (This represents our national debt).

So last week, the “Jones’s” sat down at the kitchen table and agreed to cut $38 from their monthly budget. A historic amount!

R U Impressed? Me neither!!!!
