On Tuesday we had a lot of fun going to our caucus. Both Ken and I are actively involved in our local Republican party and so Ken especially had helped to get everything ready for the caucus. I don't think a lot of people realize it but the caucuses and things like that are run by volunteers and funded by the money from local people.
Tuesday night there was a great turnout which was very exciting but it also caused a fair amount of chaos. Many people had no idea what ward or township they were in and then we had around 20 different ones in one place so it took quite a while to get everybody to their right tables. Then we didn't have enough ballets made up as we had not expected that many people so we ended up having to just tear up scraps of paper which they could then just write the name they wanted on.
It was fun to see people get interested in talking about resolutions and then deciding to be delegates to the county convention. Both Ken and I signed up to be delegates there and then we are hoping to go on to state. I think it is very important that people get involved if we want to keep our country on the right track. If we always leave the decision making up to others, they aren't neccasarily going to make the choices that we like.
I was quite disapointed to learn today that Mitt Romney was getting out of the race. That is who we had after much thinking decided to support. But even though I think McCain has some problems I think that he has it much more together concerning the issues that I find important than the opposition does.
What are your thoughts on all of this? Ar you involved? Do you even care? Or do you sit on the sidelines and complain?
