Michele Bachmann: What does she believe?
Michele Bachmann is running for president and has a much better track record than any of the other male candidates. This woman is a strong conservative and will do what’s right for her own family and ours, too. But some are saying we can’t vote for her because she’s a woman. This quote from a Democrat tells us we better wake up and find our (wo)man. “I love how Sexism is STILL alive among the conservatives.” We conservatives need to be voting for the candidate who is strongest on the issues we believe in, whether man or woman. If we come together as conservative republicans and all stand for the one person who is strongest on the issues, we can beatObama in the next election. If we don’t stand together, then divided we will fall. Forget male or female, vote the issues! Not all conservatives are backward sexists!
In 2006, she became the first Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives from Minnesota. Currently serves on the Financial Services Committee and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Also a member of bipartisan Congressional Prayer Caucus. Founder of the House Tea Party Caucus. Selected to TIME Magazine‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world (April 2011). Graduate of Winona State University (Minnesota) (bachelor’s degree), Oral Roberts University (Juris Doctor), and College of William and Mary (L.L.M. in tax law). Former member of Minnesota House and Senate. Small business owner employing nearly 50 people. She Won the August 13, 2011, Iowa straw poll. Rep. Michele Bachmann won the Minnesota straw poll vote, also which is a good indicator of her strength as a candidate. She is a very strong conservative leader with a Christian background, good moral standing, and excellent leadership skills.
