On the Twelfth Day of Christmas...

During Christmastime, my mind went to a favorite old song, and I drifted into the political…

Without providing you with a woeful audio rendition, I’ll merely supply the lyrics and let you sing it to yourself in the manner you are best suited.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my Country gave to me

(12) Hope for the future,

(11) An electorate with courage,

(10) States with more power,

(9) All judges faithful,

(8) Crooks out of office,

(7) Freedom of religion,

(6) Military healthy,

(5) Help from Above,

(4) Freedom of the press,

(3) Free market rules,

(2) More cash in hand,

(1) And more leaders with integrity.

We can have fun with a parody, but we must be serious about our Nation’s direction. November 2 provided evidence that many Americans are indeed serious about our country’s path, and that they wish to maintain many great, historical American distinctives.

May God bless each of us as we prayerfully seek to be better citizens, and therefore contribute to the building of a better country.
