Vanity: When was your first time and how was it?

Posted on 11/06/2012 3:14:18 PM PST by DManA

I'll go first. Mine was Richard Nixon 1972. I felt cheap and used. I wish I'd waited for a better man.

Mine was George H.W. Bush in ‘88. If only I’d been old enough to vote for Reagan in ‘84.... *sigh*

I remember going to the store and getting pretzels that night with my Mom because she was so nervous.

My first vote was for Ronald.

My eldest son voted for the first time today and was given special attention when he was in line. All of the poll workers appreciated his efforts.

Mine was voting for Ronald Reagan after working for months on his 1976 campaign. He lost, of course. But it was well worth it!

2004. It was my first year in college, and I pushed for Bush like I was Karl Rove.

Two years later, I re-registered as an Independent because I was so disgusted with what had happened.

Mine was George McGovern, also in ‘72. At the time I bought into all that whirled peas stuff.

I was 18 years and four months old in November 72 and happily voted for Nixon. McGovern was a nutburger radical Lefty.

I voted for Pres for the first time in 1980. I cast my vote for Jimmy Carter (I was in college then and thought I was a Democrat).

Naturally, I was disappointed my guy lost. However, I watched Ronald Reagan's victory speech with an open mind. He convinced me that I should give him a chance. He did not disappoint me. Four years later, I was a solid Republican and proudly cast my second vote for president for Reagan.

I was left feeling so empty by my first that for my second I actually voted for BJ Clinton. One of many youthful indiscretions I regret.

Reagan the first time he ran. It was a first for both of us. Too bad the affair only lasted 8 years.

Mcgovern ‘72.

Next time I voted it was for Reagan ‘80. I think I changed a bit somewhere along the way.

I just missed being able to vote for George H.W. Bush in ‘92 by a year. So I had to settle for Bob Dole in ‘96. :(

Reagan 1980 was my first. I was at my duty station at Ellsworth AFB. After a long day in the field tending to my flock of Minuteman 3’s, I went down to the local school and stood on line for hours.

Finally it was my turn and they said, you do not live in South Dakota so you cannot get here. I yelled at the poor woman. The people on line went nuts.

They let me cast my ballot. It was dirty, and felt o so good.

Mine was Bob Dole and I was in High School, the idea of “doing it” with a really old geezer was creepy but not as creepy as William Jefferson Clinton...

My motto when I went to vote was, “Close, but no cigar!”

My first time voting was for Kerry. I was STUPID at the time and believed that I should vote Dem because my family did. I wised up REAL quick. I’m grateful the better man won.

I was too young to vote for Goldwater in ‘64. A few years later they lowered the voting age to 18. If that had been true in ‘64, I could have voted for Goldwater.

1984 for my personal hero, Ronald Reagan.

Little did I know that it would be the best vote I ever cast and likely ever will cast. I found out the hard way that there wasn’t a whole bullpen of Reagans waiting in the wings.
Now I’m not even a Republican. Haven’t been since 2007.

Like any guy I was inept and clumsy the first time but I learned. Thats why George McGovern is the only democrat I ever voted for.

Except my friend Jack running for school board but he’s a friend.

I did it in St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church for R. Reagan in 1980. At the time you thought that American was going down the drain.
