Country at a Crossroads, Romney Supporter Says

Kiely Allen, a mother of seven and small business owner, went to see Ann Romney speak in Largo on Wednesday.

Kiely Allen is at a crossroads.

Allen is involved in politics for the first time because she believes this year's election is important in shaping the country’s future.

She does not agree with the policy and mindset that's developed in the country over the last four years. That is why she came to see afternoon as she campaigned on behalf of her husband, Mitt Romney.

“I’ve never been to anything like this before,” Allen said as she walked across the parking lot toward the front doors after parking black Mercedes SUV. “Nothing on the presidential level.”

Allen lives in Harbor Oaks and found out about the speech in an email from the Women For Mitt group.

Allen and her husband Steve own , a small but growing technology company. The firm .

Allen said she missed Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention and is looking forward to seeing and hearing her live.

Allen, a mother of seven, said Romney appears very intelligent and respects her commitment to her maternal responsibilities.

She said she is supporting Romney like she does most Republicans.

Allen said fiscal responsibility and accountability are vital to fixing the nation's economy, and a leader with a business background can be an important asset.

“These people don’t have to do this (run for office/politics),” Allen said.

Ms Allen with her seven needs to be thinking about their futures. Does she. Want them serving in war? Does health insurance mean anything 2 her 4 her children? Mitt hasn't a clue! Yes a business man who made made money off the backs of others his only claim 2 fame!

F Serrano-Lux what do you have against being a business owner who turns a profit? Isn't that the purpose of going into business? You own the business and manage it and the employees,in exchange for a salary, work with their specific skills to assist in building that business. This is how America wad built - by small business!

R Money was NOT a business man. He made nothing. He provided no service. He was an insider, a sharpie who profited by playing the angles. To compare R Money to a small businessman who sells a product or provides a service, who builds a community, is a disservice to America and our great nation.

Lets see what we know about Ms. Allens life choices: 1. Allen is involved in politics for the first time (disinterested in the future, for her children) 2. after parking black Mercedes SUV ( Does not support American workers) 3.Allen, a mother of seven, (apparrently is unfamiliar with over population or family planning) 4. supporting Romney like she does most Republicans (safe to assume supported George Bush and Rick Scott, great choices) 5.a leader with a business background can be an important asset.(like george bush, unlike Ronald Reagan) Perfect example of a Romney supporter

The Democratic Party and their ideology and rhetoric and liberal policies have now led America and the world to riots and death. The Leader of the free world, Barack Obama, does NOT care about America and actually does NOT care what happens to Americans. He talks a good game but won't walk his talk: http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2012/09/13/unreal_obama_skipped_daily_intel_briefing_immediately_following_assassination_of_us_ambassador

KIely, did you ask Ann why she and Mitt hide their money in bank accounts in Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Switzerland? Why are they betting against America!
