My name is Maggie M. Thornton. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the northeastern portion of the state, which bears no semblance to the days of the Dust Bowl. It is is lushly green and hilly here – a beautiful place to live.
Contrary to perceptions, we are not all red-necks, although I am proud to know plenty of them. We are not all obese. We do eat lots of fresh and healthy salads, and bar-b-que is not slathered on everything coming off a grill. We have an abundance of lakes, rivers and streams and are the home state to many great music, stage and screen artists, as well as current political heroes, Senators Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn.
I have been married to a wonderful man…a Superhero, for 37 years. He shares my passion for the love of God, Â country, home, family, our Constitution, and all founding documents, conservatism, and politics.
I love to travel and have been fortunate to do a lot of it, but I also love being in my home and sharing it with family and friends.
The 2012 election has come and gone. If we cannot take the Senate in 2014 and strengthen the House, I’m not optimistic that the country I grew up in will survive. I cannot blame only the Obama administration. Some of this has been coming for a very long time. Decades ago Congress began ignoring the Constitution. Most of us, you and I, didn’t notice. We weren’t paying attention. Now we have a club of backslappers on Capitol Hill rather than an august body soberly weighing the constitutionality of law. While I hope we survive the current accelerationÂ of Marxism on the march, I’m not optimistic. If 2014 favors Republicans we may draw back, but I doubt it’s more than a punt.
