Thoughts About the New Year

I have always been a “the glass is half full” kind of guy.

And as I reflect on the past year, there are several things that I can see in the natural that would be discouraging. From the recognition of same sex marriage, to the terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon, to the expansion of drug legalization, to the continued unanswered questions of what in the heck happened in Benghazi, to just about everyone realizing that you could keep your doctor and your policy if you liked them despite the prior multiple promises of the President, one could say that for conservatives like myself, 2013 was not a good year.

However, for all of these disappointing moments, I can always find something positive. Notably, when the terror attacks happened in Boston, Americans everywhere responded with a unity that we have become accustomed to. The outpouring of support and prayers from Americans and non-Americans everywhere was inspirational. It was the type of response that allows me to remain a “the glass is half full” kind of guy.

My message to any conservative who might be feeling a little blue, is to remember, we are Republicans, we do not give up. 2014 is going to be banner year for our people running for office.

From the Spear Family to all of you, please have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year.
