South Carolina is one of the reddest of the red states.   It’s conservative Republican through and through.    The general election is coming up shortly, Tuesday, November 4th.    Most of the state-wide offices have at least 2 people running for them, Democrat and Republican.    At least I think they do…you wouldn’t be able to tell unless you’ve searched for the candidates.

Coming from someone who votes Democrat more often than not, I don’t know why Democrats even try in South Carolina.    Looking around at the political landscape it’s hard to find any real evidence that Democrats are actually running.   Their names will be on the ballots, but I haven’t seen signs, heard ads or gotten any fliers from any of them.     Is it that much of a lost cause?     Just 2 years ago, in the 7th District congressional race, the Republican Tom Rice didn’t have an easy time beating Democrat Gloria Bromell Tinubu.   This year it’s a re-match between the 2, yet I haven’t seen any mention anywhere that Ms Tinubu is even running, let alone trying to win.

Four years ago, Nikki Haley had a very narrow victory over Democrat Vincent Sheheen.    They also have a re-match this year.    Now, Sheheen IS spending money and running ads, but it’s all negative and doesn’t seem to be working.    But he’s the only person spending money to get their message out.

The US Senate, Superintendant of Education, Lt. Governor…those are all races that are in play from both major parties, yet not a peep from the Democrats.

Granted, as a red-red state, it’s almost impossible to think that any of those races will go to a Democrat, but if you’re going to throw in the towel this early, why even waste your money on the filing fee?

I will always acknowledge this day... September 11th... I will never, ever forget.

But, I find it hard to emotionally go back there so I avoid memorial services.  It's not because I don't want to go... it's just because it's too emotional and too raw to go back to the terror I felt that day and for months afterwards.

My family was directly affected by the events and aftermath of that fateful day ... but, thank God, we did not lose any personal family members.

But, still... living in New York those days... was a very dark time.

As we head back into war action against these terrorists again, I just hope and pray that we don't lose any military service men and women.  I know in my heart how necessarry it is that we stomp out and eliminate ISIS, Al Qaeda, whatever... but I always think about the spouses, children and parents of the military and how they must feel when they give their loved one that last kiss and hug before they march off to war torn lands far away.  

I pray for a quick, successful mission on this Patriot Day... and no matter what's going on or not going on in Washington, D.C., I am still a very proud American. 

This country is the most amazing country on the planet and we must lead the world in achieving justice and peace.  We may get it wrong sometimes or maybe it gets messy, but I want to believe that keeping Americans and our interests safe is in the hearts of our military generals and Commander in Chief.  

God Bless America.
