I am one of those nerds who has been interested in politics all my life. I remember going to a rally in 1992 to see President George H. W. Bush, and I have been hooked ever since. I grew up near the liberal’s paradise of Madison, Wisconsin, but still managed to stay strong to conservative principles. I’m a big time fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Milwaukee Brewers. I love playing the guitar and the drums whenever I can get my hands on a set. A random fact about me is that I am a Civil War reenactor. I think it’s incredibly important for people to know about, understand, and appreciate American History. I am also a newlywed and am thoroughly enjoying married life!
How I met Mitt:
I am usually pretty up to date with what’s going on politically, but leading into the 2008 race for President I knew relatively little about the Republican candidates. So early in December of 2007, I decided I needed to do some research and get behind a candidate or two. Mitt Romney stood out to me immediately. I was under the impression that he was a more liberal Republican, but the more I found out about him, the more I realized that just was not true. His understanding of of how the economy works, innovative solutions to issues like health care, belief in a strong military, and pro-family stances convinced me that Mitt was the right man for the job. I had also come to the realization that our government needs to function more like a business from a fiscal responsibility standpoint, and who better to oversee that than a man who has had experience doing just that? Mitt Romney for President in 2012!
Questions to ponder:
1. If you got scared half to death twice, would you be dead?
2. If con is the opposite of pro, what is the opposite of progress?
3. Why do they report power outages on TV?
4. Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?
5. Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?
