Before I post anything else to this website, I wanted to let people know more about me so they understand where I am coming from when they read my blogs.
My name is Shawn Dougherty, author, blogger, and former internet radio host of the show Conservative T & T on Blog Talk Radio. My first book was released back in 2008 (Young Conservative: Views of a college Conservative) and my newest book, Losing my Political Mind: The Argument for Sanity, was released about a month ago. When I am not driving myself crazy in the political world offline and online, I like to what most 27 years olds like to do these days. I like to hang out with friends, play video games, and all of the normal stuff someone my age does. I also read a lot, like to watch sports, and all around just try to relax in a world that drives us all nuts at some point or another. I am a big believer in standing up for one's country and one's beliefs, but also standing back every once and a while and getting away from it all. I for one know how a person gets when they wrap their lives into something like politics, and it is not what someone wants to become.
I finished my podcast up a few weeks ago after doing it for over three years. It was a very nice experience to get to talk to a lot of other people about the issues that are effecting this nation, but it also got to the point where I was more concerned with how many people listened than the message. Because of that, I stepped away and moved toward a more friendly type of podcast that I do once and a while from my website, Losing my Political Mind. This website is where I post all of the blogs that I write, but you will also be able to read them here as well. read more »
This is a couple days old but still very important and amazing to see. We have to be careful on how happy we get about this vote, considering the feminist groups will be out in force to challenge it even if it does pass through in the elections. The vote will be to define when a life begins, and the best way to do this is to allow the people in the individual states to determine what they believe to be the truth. Feminists groups and the Left hate this because they know most of America believes that life begins at conception, and allowing the people to vote on it will only show that the government is taking the wrong stance on this issue. The battle will begin in November, but if it were to pass it will not end there.
People from every state in the union should be trying to get something like this on the ballot in their states, if for no other reason than to let the people in state government know that this is a state issue, not a federal issue. The Supreme Court has taken it upon themselves to make it a federal issue, but the people can take it back and we can win this battle over the killing of unborn babies in this nation.
I have written a lot about this topic over the past few years now, especially in my two books where I talk about it in great detail. We on the right who are pro-life need to make a stand against the Left and pro-choice fanatics that say it is the woman’s body and shoe should be able to decide when life begins. This is making the woman a God, in my opinion, something that no woman is or ever will be. If we stand for the killing of innocent children, where does it end? We must make our voices heard on this issue and stand with those in Mississippi and hope that they make the right decision for everyone. They can take a lead in this nation and stand up to the federal government and tell them they will make their own rules and there is nothing that can be done about it. It is about time the states took the lead in their own business, and not allow the federal government to run everything in our lives. read more »
