Hellooooooooooo Everybody!!!!!

My name is Eryn..I am a busy and proud Momma of 5 (13, 10, 8, 4, and 2 yrs old)..and a loved partner and wife for 14+ years, to my darling hubby, Darwin...who is also an ex Navy Man. Dirol
I'm a SAHM..who also loves reading, gardening, canning, anything outdoorsy, quilting, interior decorating, singing, exercising, MY FAMILY ...basically anything domestic in nature..I LOVE, LIVE, and BREATHE it!
I was a political virgin (LOL) until I came across these political boards and after reading so many POV's and thoughts, that strangely matched my own (and it was strange because I thought I was always alone in my thinking..other than for dh..but he is kinda biased because he has to agree with me! LOL)..I decided to declare who I was and make it also known what I stood for!
I have to say though..I take far more..than I put out here. LOL.
Such brilliant and smart ladies I have come to know here and they provide a wealth of information for me to further study upon. I am pretty conservative..but I still can find ways to agree with even my most fierce opposites. I just am stubborn and WILL find something! lol

I have studied the guidelines and hope this will continue be a great experience for myself. I am fully aware that what ever comes out of my thoughts and mouth, I am 100% accountable for and will accept any repercussions..be it positive or negetive, from those as well.

Its such a pleasure to be here with all of you! xoxoxo

Hello, all you lovely ladies. My name is Megan, I'm engaged to a wonderfully pampering (though wise cracking and often infurriating) man named Bryon. We are expecting a little girl on November 4th and her name will be Katie. My fiancee (though I usually cheat and refer to him as "hubby"...or just "Daddy") and I are both active duty in the Air Force, and yes, we both know what a fluffernutter is.
I like to consider myself "an open minded, though often right-leaning independant", but am regestered as a Republican. I like to think of myself as wacky and different, buuuut most people just call me crazy.

I have read and understand all "da rules".

Hello, My name is Mary and I'm interested in conserving our rights as dictated to us in the Constitution. I am often appalled by our political figures regardless of their party affliction as they tend to act more like some sort of celebrity/royalty rather than realizing they are supposed to be elected everyday folk. I believe the principles of our country work with minimal interference from the elected officials and do not care to redistribute the wealth as I believe that wealth can be measured in terms greater than just finances.

By posting this introduction, it signifies that I have read the terms and conditions as set forth by the site and this forum and acknowledges I will do my best to post within my comprehension of said regulations and accept the consequences of my actions should I fail to act within their restraints.

Longtime lurking newbie here...

My name is Shellie, a Christian SAHM of 3 boys, and I have just become more politically "aware" this past year. Before then, I always assumed that our government would have some left leanings if a Dem. was prez, some right leanings if a Repub. was prez...but that it would all pretty much balance out in the end. Not so anymore...I am truly scared with the direction our country is heading. So, I've been lurking on this board since just before the election...I guess it's about time that I join in. It's good to know that there are others who think like me besides my "church friends"!!

BTW...I read the "rules" and plan to abide by them!

I'm Lucky. I'm a mom.

Although I see nothing different in the "new" rules since the last time I read them not long ago.......as usual and as I have practiced for the past 7 years, will continue to follow them. Wink Welll......at least until or unless a point in time comes when I decide not to be a part of this site at all anymore.

I will follow the aforementioned rules.

My name is Amanda. I am a single mother of two girls (Katelyn & Addison). I am leaning toward calling myself a conservative libertarian, but definitely not HUGELY off from Republican ideals in most ways. I get the smack-down often on the debate board for having Christian leanings, but I don't mind lovingly returning the favor lol. I have been a regular on the debate board, April 06, November 07 (which is pretty much shriveled up these days), etc. I have a BF who is AWESOME, and I love spending time gardening or hiking with him.

Ok...I'll come up here to play as the independent forum and the Libertarian forum are kind of slow right now and I identify more with conservatives on most issues......and I LOVE Glenn Beck:cool: I know Christy, Melissa, Gina, Shawn Joy, Jessica, Ashley, Laura, and Rose....am I missing anyone? If so, I'm sorry.

I'm Tammy, wife to Scott, mom to Abby, Kacie, Chase, and Jacob. We have a dog named Katie, and two cats named Charlie and Lily. We live in Maine where the winters are cold and the last two summers have been...well....cold. lol. I'm also a crazy animal lover and have been known to try to save the lives of wild turkey babies, birds, mice, and even wounded baby weasels:eek::D

Oh yeah, I agree to the rules.
