{politcal post} Romney Meet & Greet

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*

We may not agree 100% on our political views, but we can agree that we both want what is best for our country. I am glad to see you so involved. Also, you are both adorable (You and Kiara, I wasn't talking about Mitt haha!)

Was that over here at the temple?  I noticed the traffic and now there are all of a sudden TONS of Mitt signs up around my house!

Ha ha, well I would say that 90% of my friends don't agree with my political views... but that's okay! I am just happy to see when people are involved, too!

I'm not much of a commentor, but I love your blog and Bennett is so cute. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well! Anyway, I am a Republican too. I like Rick Santorum best (I feel he's the most genuine) but Romney is definitely my second choice and he looks like he has a great family. As long as it isn't Ron Paul, I'm happy!

I have voted once in my life (with the opportunity twice). I want to make 2012 my 2nd time, so, I need to educate myself on these candidates. Truth be told, I get annoyed and just don't pay attention because of all the garbage that goes around, but I want to try to look past that this year and vote for MY next president. :) Kudos to you for knowing who you're voting for and getting to attend the meet & greet. :)

I'm just glad to hear there are some conservatives in Washington. I have some relatives out there and last time I visited there was some political protesting going on, but it was all very one sided and made me wonder if there were any republicans out there at all. I'm so glad you are brave enough to go against the flow and get involved. Thanks for sharing your viewpoint.

 He he yes there are SOME conservatives in WA state, and I was so pleased to be around a bunch of them this past weekend!! It's hard to be in the minority here (politically) but I'm proud of my beliefs so I thank you for your wonderful comment! :)

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 I totally know what you mean. There can be a lot of frustrating bickering and ridiculous rhetoric in the political arena. But it's super important to be able to look past that and research the candidates... and then in turn - vote for the person that best aligns with your morals & beliefs. Thanks so much for commenting! :-)
