From time to time I review some things I’ve written in the past as a check to see what kind of track I might be on — have I been speaking truth or falsehood?
As we are once more entering the voting season and soon will have new national leadership, will we study the issues carefully before we choose. And more importantly will we carefully examine the character of each who would lead us into the future? And is character important? A few items to consider:

- Are you even aware that the prospects of a dictatorship are very probable?
- What will you do if suddenly you awoke realizing your valuable freedoms have been taken away?
- Are you willing to reexamine some of your core beliefs?
- How will you react if you come to see that what you have believed, even for many years is wrong?
- What will you personally do to preserve liberty and opportunity for your own and future generations?
- Are you paying attention to what’s going…
