For obvious reasons, I don't write on the topic of politics much on my blog. But don't let that fool you into thinking that I'm not passionate about it. Because I AM. I just very much like to avoid any sort of controversy. But being that this is kind of a big deal (the 2012 election), I really wanted to have this documented on my blog. So feel free to read on, or skip it. It's up to you :)
The WA State GOP caucuses are tomorrow morning, and I had the opportunity to attend a meet & greet with with Mitt Romney before hand. In case you don't know, he's a republican presidential candidate. And yes, I am a conservative. :)
We are RIGHT in the thick of things here on the right side of the isle, determining who will be the best candidate to run against Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. And I felt it was important to come out and rally around the candidate that I believe should be our next President. I will not dive too deep into this because like I said - this post is not meant to bring about a huge discussion. BUT I feel very very strongly that Mitt Romney can & will (given the opportunity) turn this economy around, balance the budget, create jobs, uphold the values and morals of America, and hold true to the constitution. I believe in him 100%. He is truly humble, charitable and has the knowledge and experience to back him up.
Here I am with Kiara, waiting in line to get into the venue.
Surprisingly, there was a ridiculous amount of people in attendance. And I say "surprising" because let's be honest, WA state is like 80% democratic. Or something like that ;-) So I was very pleased to see this many people coming out to support Gov. Romney.
We didn't even get into the main room, we were stuck in overhaul room. But we got to hear everything that was going on, and all of the speeches made. And the pleasant surprise? Mitt Romney came into the overflow room and gave another speech just for us. I loved it. It was incredibly inspiring and just affirmed to me that he is definitely my candidate. I am hoping and praying that he will be our parties' nominee.
It was a pleasure to be in the same room with so many like-minded people, and to be in the presence of what could be our next president! *fingers crossed*
