This is what happened during my VIP trip to hear John McCain (a US presidential canidate.)
So here is the low down, my family was invited to hear senator McCain talk live in my town, and given VIP access.
ok, for most people that have read things that i have wrote in blogs, debate forumn ect. my family are conservative republican supporters. i however am not. so what was i doing at a town hall meeting and why the VIP access?
As stated above my family strongly supports the republican party and we have friends who help organize this event. so my family was invited and i got to go as a member of this family.
i have to admit, i am still not sure who i will vote for this year. sounds stange to some i'm sure, especially when i have advocated for Obama all along.
so we get to the meeting and security is very tight. there are cops secret service, ect. all over the place. the first thing i see is a line of several hundreds of people. this line goes on and on and on..... anyway i go to find the end only to be told i don't have to wait in line =) yes VIP has its advantages.
once out he talks about some tings that intrest me. one is he says thanks several times for the water. (for those with no knowlege of the western US water from the mountains in colorado flows down to arizona the state he is a senator from) the reason this is an issue is that the newspaper stated that he wanted to renigotiate the water compact in the west if elected. this would be very bad for my state. secondly he talked of his war time, and made several jokes (stating that he should not be considered a hero because his jet intersepted a missle) how could you not like the guy? anyway the meeting ends after about 45 minutes and we go home and watch the news to see ourselves on TV. yes we were on both regional and national.
he is a great man and i will not be disappointed if he is elected. and i am still not sure if i will also vote for him but it was great to see him live.
