This blog's title

Yes, it is true. I adore Glenn Beck. Yes, it is true, I used to think myself a liberal. And yes, it is true that I used to be very VERY stupid.

I've been thinking about the title of my blog a lot lately in relation to our country's problems. My advice is to stand up for what you believe in. Our constitution is hanging by a thread, and it scares the crap out of me.

Cody and I practice marital bonding each night by curling up on the couch and watching Glenn Beck show us, piece by piece, how our country is falling apart. What romance, right?

A House United Will Not Fall. I used this name for my blog for a completely different reason than I think of it now. No matter if it is a relationship, a family, or a COUNTRY, the words ring true. I'm ashamed of all the years I spent hiding from controversy. I wish I had been standing for what is right. I remember not knowing how I felt about the church supporting Prop 8 and asking its members to protest. Now I am super proud of those who did, (John and Wendy!) and wish that I could have been part of it. There is something liberating about knowing and standing up for what is right. And, like Glenn Beck says, "The truth shall set you free. It's going to make you miserable, but it will set you free."

If you weren't a democrat when you were young, you didn't have a heart. If you aren't a republican when you've grown, you don't have a brain.
Done.... for now.
