I got an interesting text today…

“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? 
 

 What is most important issue to you in this election?

  1. I feel the same way. Good for you for voicing your opinion on your blog, I'm definitely not even saying that I'm voting for Romney on my blog because I don't want people to start bashing each other or me. I know so many people who are [stupidly] voting for Obama, and I try to bite my tongue around them.

  2. Oh and happy early birthday! Hopefully you'll be celebrating it knowing Obama is getting the boot!

  3. Romney's got my vote as well!
    The President had four years to make changes, not much happened… let's move on.
    I'll be keeping my fingers crossed tomorrow night while drinking wine, hooting and hollering with my hubs šŸ™‚

  4. i'm excited for election day too. as you wrote, Obama had four years and haven't made things much better. i truly believe that right now, Romney is the man we need to get this country back in shape.

  5. New Zealander = not voting = no dog in this fight! Although, that doesn't mean to say I won't be checking Twitter multiple times during my breaks at work tomorrow to see what's going on! šŸ˜›

    Also, you get political ads via texts to your mobile phones!? Whoa. That would annoy me REALLY fast – I don't think that's allowed over here, unless you actually sign up to support one party or another.

  6. You know that I wholeheartedly disagree with you, but that's the beauty of America: we CAN disagree. We'll see what happens tonight! (And happy early birthday loveeee!)

  7. I actually voted Obama, but I love that you shared this post. šŸ™‚ I love bloggers who share their actual life, their emotions, their issues – and voting is such a huge deal. Thank you for sharing! xo

  8. I have never felt to emotionally invested in an election before and SO agree with you, though I think we're going to lose as I watch this race and have massive ANXIETY! LOL

  9. I feel you, and I feel a lot of the frustration that some bloggers have felt regarding Romney not getting as much press as Obama. I am personally a Ron Paul supporter and the media absolutely did a black out on him, to a degree never before seen in presidential history. Thankfully he got the word out via social media and has a ton of supporters, but still it wasn't enough exposure.
    I am very, very worried about the future of not only the US economy but economies worldwide. I am equally worried about the freedom my kids will have and feel that things have gone completely totalitarian and governments have been taken over by companies/sponsors/Wall Street.

  10. I feel the EXACT SAME. Right now we need to focus on the economy, and the other issues we can work on once that is fixed. I'm heartbroken that Romney lost, because he would have been the perfect man for the job. HE's a class act, and a role model. What happened to the value of hard work in our country? All I can do now is pray, pray that everything will be ok during these next 4 years.
