Making Calls for Cruz!
April 18, 2016
As a young, conservative woman, I strongly believe in Ted Cruz's message. His plan to abolish the IRS and create a simple flat tax plan is what this economy needs. Protection of our religious liberty is what many people of faith deserve. I recently turned 25 and started to think about what my life would be like if I was raising a child in this country with a President in power who is yearning to take away our rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution. I do not feel comfortable having children in this generation where you can't proudly say God's name in school without getting in trouble for it. God's name isn't a threat in any way. I want a President who will defend my right to express my religion as well as defend others rights to practice their own. For that reason, I decided to follow my heart and venture off to Wisconsin to volunteer for the Wisconsin primary for Ted Cruz. It was an amazing experience and I met so many people, like myself, who have a strong desire to change the direction this country is going in. I was able to fly to Wisconsin on the $300 I had left in my bank account. The day I arrived to Wisconsin I went door to door knocking with fellow volunteers from all over the country. For a week and a half we would do this from 9am-4:30pm and then the remainder of the day we would do phone banking until 9pm. We spoke to so many undecided voters who truly appreciated our phone calls and helping them to confidently choose Cruz! I am so grateful for that experience and for the amazing people I met from all over the country. I would like to do this all over again in California but I am currently without a job and having used up the remainder of my money on my trip to Wisconsin, I am now left pretty broke. My parents wish they could help me but coming from a family of 8 (6 of us being kids) it is rather difficult for them to help me in anyway. We lost our home in December 2015 and have been staying in a rental home that a friend of ours from church has offered to us for the time being. Things are stressful but I have faith in the Lord that he will help my family and I with all the things we need. I pray that someone out there can help me to go to California to volunteer. I will be going to California from May 25th-June 8th. Thank you to those of you who do decide to help me out in funding my trip to California. This will not only help me help Ted Cruz, but it will help me with my resume! I aspire to go to law school one day and get into politics sometime in the future. With God by my side leading me in the path he has set out for me, I know I will do good in his name. God Bless, Chelsea
