“Who should I vote for and why? Haha”
That’s a good question – a very, very good question.
And so because this is my blog, where I document my life, my thoughts, my hopes and my dreams – I want to share with you my answer.
Ben and I both graduate in the next few months. We’ll be looking for jobs (Ben already is). We’ll be trying to support a family sometime soon. Right now, the most important issue for me is the economy. I want to have the chance to use the education I’ve spent years getting and I want to contribute. I don’t want to have to worry about making ends meet and be able to fly home and visit my family at holidays without breaking the bank. I want opportunity and chances to work for our success. (Wall Street Journal article on Romney’s experience)
Our current president had four years. Yes, he came in to a pretty bad situation, but he hasn’t made it better. I’m scared for the state of our country and our finances if he gets another four. I am hopeful though because his opponent has more history in economic success than anyone else I’ve ever met. I think Ryan said it best when he told America this:
” I don’t think I’ve seen a time in our nation’s history where the man and the moment have met so perfectly. This man is a leader. Everything Mitt Romney has done in his life has prepared him for this moment in our history to provide the kind of leadership we need.”
And so Romney has my vote. (oh – and he knows how to work across the aisle – Mr. President doesn’t even know how to work when he doesn’t have to).
And I hope he has the Presidency after tomorrow.
Is it weird I am way more excited for the election than for my birthday on Wednesday?
