I’m in Florida visiting my parents. Last night we watched the outcome of Super Tuesday on CNN. To me, this election is so exciting. To think that we really may be voting for the first woman or first black man into our highest office is absolutely fabulous! It seems a little sad to think it has taken this long but as you look at stats in corporate leaders in America, it is amazing that we are here! My Dad asked me if Hawaii was voting on Super Tuesday and I was embarrassed to say that I didn’t know. I told him I literally hadn’t heard much about caucuses and didn’t know what was happening so I assumed voting was later.
The good news is my assumption is right. Hawaii caucuses are on Feb 19. And it is true that no one has started campaigning in Hawaii. The Honolulu Advertiser just ran an article stating that Obama just approved a campaign in Hawaii. Since he was born in Hawaii and Hawaii tends to be a very democratic state, it is logical that he would be a favorite.
For any Hawaii residents reading this blog — Many people believe that preliminary caucuses don’t matter. Most residents of Hawaii obviously believe this in that the article states that only an average of 5000 (out of 1.2 Million) people normally show up for Hawaii caucuses; that is 0.42%. I can hardly believe this! Hawaii people are involved and passionate about so many political issues. I can understand the feeling their vote may not matter because they are “small” and so many time zones off. But it is just like anything else. Elections are won, one vote at a time. Your vote won’t matter if you don’t take the option to exercise it! Hawaii may make a big difference this year. Don’t miss your chance to make history.
I don’t care whether you are Democrat or Republican. Although I’m registered to vote as a Republican, in the final vote I vote for the people that I trust the most to run our government. Know the issues, know how the candidates stand on the issues and pick your favorite.
GO OUT AND VOTE!
