A Red Letter Day

Political Rally with Paul Ryan - Des Moines, Iowa

This was my first EVER political rally! I had a blast. It was high energy and lots of fun. Because of inclement weather the rally was moved from an outdoor amphitheater to a hotel ballroom.

Large sign - took up the whole wall of the ballroom

K-8 students from Christ the King Catholic School in Des Moines led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Man Himself - Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan addressing the crowd.
The event began at 3:00 PM and consisted of lots of people speaking and warming up the crowd before  Mr. Ryan came out and spoke for 35 - 40 minutes. The other people were the local and state Republican party chairs, a former governor of Iowa, Robert Ray, two candidates for the State Senate, two sitting national congressmen, Steve King and Tom Latham, and the current governor of Iowa Terry Branstad.

It was refreshing to be with like-minded people and cheer on candidates who promise to restore the greatness of America. I'm impressed with Mr. Ryan's enthusiasm and his honesty. He repeated several times that Mr. Romney and he will not dodge the tough issues, but address them head on and lead from the front. They will not blame others, but step up to take responsibility to restore the principles that have made America strong, great and prosperous.

My friend and I had a great time at the rally and on the two hour drive there and home. Wonderful adventure!
