No Regrets Campaigning for Romney-Ryan in Virginia

Note: The following post was written by me as an individual, not as an employee of Leadership Institute.

“I don’t always campaign, but when I do, I campaign for Romney-Ryan in Virginia.”

I spent the past two Saturdays campaigning in Louduon County, VA with my dad and some friends  who are also active in the conservative youth movement. I met some great patriots along the way and got to bond with my dad more. Additionally, I got to see Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli again (mark my words, he’ll be the next governor of Virginia) and finally met conservative talk show host Mark Levin.

I have no regrets.

I feel embarrassed to admit this, but I never campaigned before until last Saturday. Admittedly, I primarily focus on social media, blogging, and youth activism – which are my niche areas. I’m not really into party politics after seeing the CAGOP’s incompetence on display. I grew into a disillusioned Republican voter – not disillusioned in the sense that I’d vote Democrat (God forbid), but disillusioned in the sense that the party I registered for at 18 was not going in line with conservatism. Not everyone in the CAGOP should be blamed, but many people are at fault for letting the GOP slip in California. Step it up. Yes, I voted (R) in 2009 (referendum election), 2010 (midterms), now in 2012 – and I will continue to do so. Yet, I’m sick and tired of wishy-washy Republican candidates. And many fellow conservatives agree:  we need CONSERVATIVE Republicans in office.

Now that I live in Virginia, which is a huge improvement from my home state Commie…er, California, I was proud to campaign for Republicans here. (Mind you, VAGOP is not perfect either – but at least it’s active.)  I hope I don’t sound cliché, but it is imperative that every person vote, campaign, make calls – whatever – to make sure our side wins on Tuesday. Obama’s failed policies have wrought doom and gloom on our country. Our economy is suffering. Our liberties are under attack. Our country is weak. Can we really afford four more years of this Marxist president? NO.

I implore every young person (and American) who wants a future in this country to vote Romney-Ryan. Your future and our livelihood depend on Obama’s defeat.
