  • Choice isn’t a bad thing for Oldham Countians

    Let’s talk about choice.

    The term choice has gotten a bad rap the past few years. Especially “Pro-Choice,” because it has come to define the abortion issue. Pro-choice has come to identify those people who have little or no problem with aborting unborn children.

    Today I want to talk about choice in our political leaders. Specifically about having a choice in whom we elect.
