I am a 65 year old female and a retired insurance agent. I went to Michigan State back when they still had a decent football team. I now live in Joplin Missouri although I spend the majority of my life in Michigan living in both Wayne and Livingston counties there. I am a conservative, I am pro life, pro small government and feel if someones earned a good living or is rich he shouldn't be taxed any different than anyone else after all a person should be allowed to enjoy the fruit of his labors. I am not a fan of Obama's and never will be. When I see a copy of his birth certificate that says he was born here in the United States I will call him my president till then I won't even do that. I love my country and wouldn't live anywhere else although during my lifetime I have watched things go downhill I still have high hopes for this great country. I decided since I now have time on my hands that I would get onto a political forum I hope this is a great place to calmly express our opinions.
