This is my first presidential election... I just turned 19 in December.
I come from a very political family, and I've been following politics since I was 10, participating (by helping pass petitions, passing out info on candidates and the such, and other miscellaneous stuff) since I was 12 years old.
Early in the race, I decided that Huckabee had my vote. This was no snap decision. I looked carefully at the things he supported and compared them with my own personal views. He is the only candidate that aligned almost completely.
So how thrilled do you think I was when, in chapel this morning, the president of my university announced that Mike Huckabee would be visiting our campus tomorrow for a Rally.
Now, I'm going to be honest. I never thought that in my life, let alone my first election, I would get to attend any rally, especially one for the candidate I support.
But not only do I get to attend this rally, I am only a walk across the parking lot away from the rally.
This is an amazing thing that has been thrust at me, and I am so thankful that I live in a society where we can elect the people we see fit, and that we can have rallies like this one to show our support for the candidates we love.
