I wish I had a camera at the meeting I went to tonight. It was truly amazing. Tonight was a Republican party caucus meeting. I have been to several before. Usually when I have attended there is only a handful of people there. As Tim and I drove up to the high school where the meeting was to be held I was impressed to see several cars at the intersection of the road waiting to get into the parking lot. All the high school parking lots were full. Tim and I parked down the street and by a public library. As we got inside the building it was thrilling to see the auditorium 80% filled to capacity. The meeting opened with a prayer asking for divine guidance! Yes! It looked to me like, in most people's hearts we still turn to God! Then we had a boy scout troupe post the flag of the United States of America and then hundreds of people said the "Pledge of Allegiance" together! That was a thrill! Then the Republican Party bi-laws for the state of Utah were read. I challenge all of you who read this to find on the internet a copy of this document. It is wonderful, strong, inspired and easy to understand. We then broke off and went to our individual voting precinct meetings to vote for those we wanted to represent us in the upcoming county and state conventions. It was good to see a meeting of the minds with a whole room of people. The funny event of the evening was when the fire alarms went off in the building and we all looked at each other wondering what we were really suppose to do. We eventually realized it could be a real emergency and exited the building.
Point of this blog post. It is important to be politically involved in any way you can. Be a voting judge, go to caucus meetings, vote, whatever you can do to make your voice heard. Let us make people in Washington, DC know that the majority will be silent no longer! The minority have been given too much voice for too long.
And, God Bless America!
