I'm running for United States Senate in Kentucky. My official Google plus is just starting out still and needs some support. Also, for a better idea of what I stand for and believe check me out on Facebook over at Facebook.com/gregorydalewelch and give this audio a listen and a share.
 
I want to empower the People of Kentucky and the United States and I want to promote a higher idea:

A resilient and durable America, where justice is measured both in our widespread prosperity as well as the strength of our sense of equality and fairness. An America with shared investment and mutual responsibility. An America with strong leadership, inspired leadership, people centered and governed by an effective government. An America that is forward thinking, legacy minded, and bold enough to be visionary once again.

The history books of tomorrow are being written today. They are being written not with pen and paper but with the actions and the decisions of lawmakers and average citizens alike! We must pull together and write that future with boldness and greatness of spirit. We must write it with acceptance, fairness, and equality. We must write it vigorously with the hope and optimism in the ability of humanity to accept one another and to celebrate diversity. We must write our tomorrow today joining together and determining that as of this day, we will have no more of party politics. We will have no more of closed mindedness invading our government.We will tolerate no more discriminatory laws and attitudes corrupting what it means to be a Kentuckian, and what it means to be a United States Citizen! 

No matter the challenge, no matter the opponent, no matter the difficulty of task, I will stand on the side of history that stands on the side of the people. We have cause to celebrate in the State of Kentucky today, a victory has been won. But we must not let our celebration slow down our readiness to dig in and fight the opposition that still exists. That we are a State divided on the issue of Equality is not a bad thing. It is proof that this is our time to call for these changes and our time to see them through. Our State is changing, the definition of being Southern is changing, and our role in history is changing along with it. A line has been drawn in the sand, and we are being called on to pick our side. We must stand together, and let our voices be heard for Marriage Equality, and Equality as a whole.

I will not stop fighting for this cause, this basic human right and dignity, to be seen as equal, no matter your race, no matter your gender, no matter your orientation. Win or lose in the election, the movement will continue. I believe in equality and justice for all. I believe the Constitution guarantees the protection of every citizen and I believe that it stands on the side of the people and can guide us to a better future. I believe it is our time to rise, our time to sign our name to the history books, and to let future generations know that we did exist, that we did fight, that we persisted in the face of whatever challenges we met, and that because we stood by our convictions that no person was better than another, and that no citizen should ever be treated as second class, we will be known as the generation that came to Washington D.C. and changed everything for the better.

We are that generation. I believe in you, will you believe in me?

How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself.

I haven't used this account in quite a while and much has changed in that time. For one thing I am currently running for United States Senate in Kentucky. So, give my campaign Facebook a look and if you live in Kentucky and want a true shift from politics as usual, stand with me and help me change the way things are.
