So I have been having this internal debate about who to vote for today. Even as I walked up to the table and handed them my license I said, "do I have to decide right now between Republican and Democrat?" Let me tell you why I am having this struggle...
I have 2 candidates that I truly would be happy with in office Romney and Obama. I agree with several stances on both candidates, though Romney's economical experience gives him an edge with me. I think they both show great character. I've been teaching my girls about voting, and how it is important to know what each of the candidates believe in. I even took the girls with me to vote, but I'll get to that in a minute.
I also took a test which confirmed how I feel about the candidates:
My "heart vote" is definitely with Romney. However, I really believe that we are going to have a Democrat as President. I absolutely can't stand Hillary Clinton(or her husband) and definitely don't want to see her in office. So now I'm torn, do I vote for Obama simply so he can have one more vote against Hillary = "mind vote"? Or do I vote with my heart for Romney? I've been turning this over in my head constantly. Even as I entered the middle school to vote I was still unsure.
So, when the election official said, "yes, you have to choose now," I went with my gut and voted for Romney. I feel good about this decision.
