Hi, my name is Amanda (duh) and I'm trying to learn more about politics and others views. I was inspired by Sarah Palin to think that maybe I could be more than I ever thought possible, after all she almost made it to the White House! I'm mostly conservative with womens issues like abortion being the exception. I'm hoping to find people that will take me seriously and not just dismiss me because I'm young. I'm saving up my money to go to try to start college next year. Until this presidential race I didn't think there was any reason for someone like me to even try to go to college but I have a renewed hope and maybe with some luck I will be able to make a difference in someone else's life someday.
