This morning we're in the home stretch! The last states are coming up and the finish line is in sight. I've had no real hits on my DC40/Dominionism News Feed so whatever they're doing, it's not making the news. Let's keep the protection strong and keep this nation a secular nation as our forefathers intended.
If you'd like to join our discussion on each of the states head over to our Facebook Group "What Makes Your State Great?". As always my facts come from 50states.com.
And away we go....
