You Decide 2012

    Honestly I had no idea on how to start this post, I was kinda scared to write my feelings on this touchy subject. Every one has an opinion when it come to who they think is best for OUR Country.
 I recently stumble upon this Quote by Abraham Lincoln which says,
 "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
Abraham Lincoln
    I sat and really thought about this quote, and to be honest it kinda scared me. How could we lose our freedoms?? No one can take that away right?? WRONG!! The government can. In New York City they now have a law where you can not buy any type of soda over 16oz, umm hello I love Pepsi if I want to drink 20 or 32 oz of it I'm going to. Small things are being taken away from us. the past 4 years have been no quite what the American people expected when Obama said he was all about CHANGE. what did he change??  Gas Prices from $1.85 to $3.79 Health care.. so now we pay for peoples health care who can't afford it but can afford iPhone, new cars, trips and whatever else? hmm doesn't seem fair. Obama said College tuition would go down so that everyone can go to college,  yeah I'm pretty that hasn't happened. 

     As you all know in 15 days We The People of this Great Nation will elect a man, who we want to lead our country for the next 4 years.

   I am one of those weird people who love Politics. I have watched all the primary debates between the Republican Nominees. I watched the Republican Convention and I also watched the Democrat Convention. I watched the previous 2 debates and the Vice President Debate.

     As I looked in to both candidates I have found things that I REALLY like and things I REALLY DON'T like. I am 21 a lot of the things are being decided that will affect me. I have a lot of friends who don't care about politics. I just want to shake them and say " HELLO ARE YOU STUPID THESE THINGS EFFECT YOU!! EDUCATE YOUR SELF"  I think that is my biggest problem with people and politics, you get people who only vote for some because he is a Republican or Because he is a Democrat or because he is black or because he is Mormon or because Mitt has great hair.. lets be real Mitt has a great head of hair but don't vote for someone because of that!!! Vote for the Right reasons. Education, Jobs, Business, Values etc. do you want small gov. or big gov?

The candidate that matches my Values and what I think is the right path for America is Mitt Romney.
EVERYONE should check out his 5 Point Plan
I honestly think that  he can do what he says he will do.
   He has experience in Making jobs. how many of us College students want a good job when we graduate?? I know I do!!
    He was the Governor of Massachusetts and while he was the schools were in the top 5 in the country.
    He obviously knows how to budget money, and obviously we need someone who know how to budget 16 trillion dollars.
I am not writing this to tell you to vote for Mitt Romney (even though I think you should.. ;))
I am writing this to tell everyone to be educated about this Election. not just presidential but on a local  politicians. People in Utah say that voting is pointless.. but its not!! you still need to elect  your local leaders. IF YOU DON'T VOTE YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO COMPLAIN!!
I encourage everyone to watch the last debate tonight and then VOTE on November 6th. Only you can decide which of the two is a right fit for you!!

Black Out

This weekend has been great! I'm obsessed with fall! Rainy weather, cotton like clouds, Jackets, Scarfs, Football the list could go on and on.

Saturday was Byu's black out game! The game was good until the 4th quarter that's when Riley threw the game away! Blah blah blah soo mad!!

This week I have really been trying to study the Bom and preach my gospel.i went to mission prep and Thursday night I went and studied with my grandpa. I'm so glad that I have these opportunities to learn more about the gospel! I'm feeling a little nervous about this whole mission thing but I'm extremely excited! My papers are done and I'm just waiting on hunty to get his done so we can submit them together!!

One of my favorite things I came across was a quote that says,
"We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.
-Richard G Scott"
I love this because, it shows us that it takes time and consistent work to become what we want to become. Nothing happens over night!
Hope everyone has a fantastic week! Watch the debate educate your self then vote!! :)
