McCain-Palin rally in Lee's Summit, MO

Growing up in a Communist country, and being now an American citizen, this is my second time I can vote in the USA. That's why my whole family went today to a rally in Lee's Summit, MO to support John McCain and Sarah Palin.

the crowd

I grew up in a Communist, Eastern European country, during 70-ties and 80-ties. We longed for freedom of choice, for validation of our individual voices, for freedom of speach. I am an American now. I will be voting for the second time. I am Christian. And I am shocked seeing how Christians in this awesome country, are making choices based on pure convenience and personal interest. I still can't believe that the followers of Jesus, who should follow ten Commandments, are even considering voting for a person who is so bluntly (although charmingly) pro-abortion. What happened to their conscience?

Sarah Palin

That's why this Election Year in our homeschooling household, I am trying to teach my children (11, 9, 5) that their choice matters and it is precious. It will be noticed by God and by their fellow citizens. It will be engraved in their conscious forever, so they need to be aware of what the candidates are saying, believing in and living for. We talk about what is most important in life, how to prioritize your political choices, and according to what standards they should be aligned.

As we walked just two weeks ago around the Mall in Washington DC, we saw the sign engraved on the Korean War Memorial Wall: Freedom is not free. Somehow that took me back to my childhood, when I remember my grandfather longing for a free country, and dying not seeing it. I remember decade after decade without any prospects for political independence. I remember demonstrations on the streets, people dissapearing suddenly, schools full of propaganda, fear and ridicoulousness. I remember that a life of a person was considered nothing in comparison to the collectiv needs of masses. How could I vote against life of the speechless? That's why I'd rather see USA as one nation under McCain, then one nation under Obama.

Freedom is not free

I want my kids to hear that over and over again, so they will not take their choices lightly, when they grow up and one day will be offered an opportunity to choose the next president of the United States.

kids for McCain

On the technical side: why was the building so small? It could fit hardly 3,000 people and few thousands were still waiting outside.

And for the Hillary's supporters: there was a Hillary Clinton supporter speaking (sorry, don't remember the name) who decided to vote for Palin this year. Guess why...

A new kind of leader - Sarah Palin

That's the title of a book that Zondervan is releasing on October 10th. A new kind of leader

The book "will explore themes from her career in politics, her life as a hockey mom, and her strongly held Christian faith, explaining how they influence her new style of leadership and align with our changing economy in the information age."

I tend to think these days that prayer works. God is unexpectedly surprising us by a twist of events that no one would predict. Some of my friends from other countries say, this is possible only in the USA. A person arises from almost nowwhere, electrifies the whole party and the country, speaks her mind out without fear of stepping on someone elses ideas, stands in the midst of seasoned politicians and proclaims with her life that LIFE MATTERS.

I like that kind of 'feminist', the kind that 'walks the talk', is a Christian, has more than two kids and governs a state in the most important country of the world!!!

What is God saying... I wonder...

McCain - Obama talk with Warren

This is what I was waiting for. The questions I would ask (and some more), were mostly asked. No hype, no brutality, no fighting, but a simple conversation, allowing these two great men to answer without being interrupted. The issues were broad, including abortion, human trafficking, personal life with God, orphans, personal moral failures, war, Supreme Court justices, evil, steam cell reaserch, and many more.

Here is a helpful side by side question-answer comparison.

You can, and should watch it, (CNN site here).
