Last Friday, I found out the Washington Times was going to run my OpEd. I hadn't shown my husband what I'd submitted because I never thought it would REALLY go anywhere. He read it and said,"We're going to be audited by the IRS now." He also said it was well written. ~laughter~ I'm thankful that The Washington Times gave me the opportunity to share a brief summation of our family's Obamacare nightmare.
I am an American. I am not afraid of my government. Fear of an IRS audit will never keep me from speaking out and standing up. We've got nothing to hide. I will stand up against the tyranny that is Obamacare and ANY tyranny which threatens my liberty and the freedom of future generations of Americans. I am still an American soldier. Once a soldier, always a soldier. Maybe a little different than when I was younger, but I'm a soldier who still takes her oath seriously. Duty. Honor. Country. Let's roll. It's going to be a good day. I'm sure the left will attack.

Blast from the past- here I am in August of 1991 being sworn in as a 2LT:
I, _____, having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God."
