Here I go

I moved from small town to big city town in 1985. I went from a small private school to a large public school. I was in the 3rd grade, I looked like a Laura Ingalls Wilder wanna be with glasses and a broken arm....I will try to find a picture.

I made a few friends and I asked them who do you want to be Presidents? What do you think about abortion. I think my Mom might have gotten a few phone calls from other mother's wanting to know what she had told me about abortion. When I was in the 2nd grade the small private school I went to picketed an abortion clinic.

I was raised in a home that was active in the Republican party, politics, changing legislation, walking door to door to get republican pro-life candidates elected.

My Mom became a Republican when I was 2 year old, she had been a Democrat up until then.

When I was in junior high I organized the first ever mock election for the school. I went to the '88 Republican convention in New Orleans and the '92 convention in Houston. Then George H.W. Bush's inauguration. I was the youngest Presidential Elector in the country in the 2000 election and then went to G.W.'s inauguration. I have worked on countless high profile campaigns and have loved every minute of it.

My Mom was a State Senator and that was a lot of fun. She held office for 5 years.

I was raised in politics, its in my blood and I'm proud to be a Pro-life Republican.

I listen to Rush Limbaugh, I think he is hilarious, seriously he is funny!

I haven't been able to be as active in politics in this stage of my life because its hard to volunteer with small kids and a school schedule. I'm pretty sure I will be able to help out during this election cycle but it will be limited, I would love to do more.

I love this time of year, I watched both conventions from beginning to end. I love the process, the debates, political ads, I even love it when they call me and want to know how I'm going to vote. I love the bumper stickers, yard signs and the rally's.

I'm an ordinary person, who some day would like to hold office. When I was in the 4th grade I said I wanted to be President of the United States of America, a pretty lofty goal for the smallest kid in the class. I look up to Sarah Palin and what she has accomplished in her life, I hope Reagan (our daughter) realizes what she is doing for all women in America.

I want McCain to be our next President.

There is nothing that is appealing to me about Obama, I think Hilary would have been a better VP choice than Biden. However, I don't think Obama could have handled her power and her presence. I think she is more interesting to listen to and watch than Obama.

I guess come November we will see who chose a better VP running mate.

Thanks Kristin!! I'm really excited about John McCain and Sarah Palin. Did you see that McCain is up in the polls over Obama?
