years. We knew the election would likely be stolen, but, like you, thought if we worked hard enough we could over-ride the fraud. I think many of us realized it was unlikely before we voted. It seemed we were all resigned BEFORE Nov. 2.

As far as exercise goes, well, My job provides it in droves. I lift heavy equipment and run around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I DO need more family time/down time. I do see the good in the world. My job insures that, but to keep up with things I rarely take more than a day or two off from the computer when I'm at home!

I have to say though, despite my kids obnoxious behavior (they don't really understand that I'm doing this for THEIR future) I am still inclined to spend as much time at this as I possibly can. I am seeing REAL results lately. Not like in past years where MOST people didn't really believe in the possibility of stolen elections. I think our devotion is making a HUGE difference!

Take a couple days off! Come back and review the daily update threads after you have caught your breath. I am finding they really are quite comprehensive, but word of warning, two days away from here and spent with my family only makes me want to fight harder! I just can't stand to think what the world could be like for them if these DELUSIONAL individuals keep taking away EVERYTHING this country was founded on! I am envisioning my parents, my husbands mother, AND my children all living under the same roof and STILL not being able to pay the damn bills or get proper medical care,or...
