Because even though you can vote yourself into socialism, it seems you always have to shoot your way out of it."

Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!
