Finally, a place where I can separate the spiritual faith from politics!
CathCon is a work in progress that I hope will guide anybody to improve themselves, get some mental and spiritual messages and inspire to get better in life.

I am still watching the Iowa race, all the news that I can absorb and of course, the “earthquake” that Palin fans like me like to see in Iowa; but still we won’t know until next year.
I am rooting for Santorum on this one because of how hard he’s working to not finish dead last and continue to be on the race. I can’t wait to see if the GOP‘s “chosen one” Mitt Romney will fare – lightweight campaign without visiting Iowa till recently does not show real interest from his part. I hope that Iowans can see through that.
With that aside, Michelle Bachmann has her hands full and it’s not from her PAC or her boots on the ground. Her campaign is seriously crumbling, and her two last debates didn’t win independents and indies. She was not one hundred percent truthful in her last two debates and her staff is taking notice – siding with the Romney campaign. Ouch. Am I glad that it happened? As I keep in my mind often, “God is in control” but I am glad mainly because of the attempted murder of Gabby Giffords. That said it all to me.
Rick Perry ran TV ads here in northwest Pennsylvania but now he’s stopped them; perhaps he needs more funds to redirect is efforts in Iowa and New Hampshire; not to mention the Virginia lawsuit. His TV ads are good – Perry looks sincere, calm, affable and quite convincing. For those that I call “the 30-second audience” and don’t do any homework on any of the candidates, this may appeal to them.
As folks all over the media and the blogosphere say, “Ron Paul is Ron Paul.” But I do have to blurt this out to the world because I have not seen people agree with me on the Iran/Navy taunting and Iran’s threats to close the Strait of Hormuz. Why in the world the US is engaging in this stupid, fruitless game where the rest of the countries that benefit and have their oil, goods and services use that same strait not said nor done anything? Bueller?
I want to know this current crop of GOP candidates their opinion on this and what would they do as Presidents. As for Ron Paul, not more than three sentences on his opinion on this very important matter./ (For those that don’t know, / means sarcasm)
I hope that it will drop to a three-MEN race soon; what Palin does is only up to her and her family. Theories abound on her decision not to run, but apparently death threats and two of her children’s refusal were a key factor. Lots of us still believe that Sarah was a “go” for the race but something happened that stopped her in her tracks. Was it Perry?
