People, Let Your Voices Be Heard!

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on November 7, 2009

by Tracey Porreca

We are standing at a precipice. It’s Saturday morning in Alaska, and as I sit here drinking my coffee, I’m watching history unfold on Fox News. If you don’t watch Fox News, you may not see this. Here is the chart they are showing Americans and the question being asked is, “If this is not bureaucracy, what is?”

Please, somebody, wake me up! This is a nightmare from which we will never, ever return. Talk to teachers. I bet any teacher can give you more negatives about “No Child Left Behind” than positives. But will we ever rescend this horrible program? I seriously doubt it. How many unfunded mandates has the federal government saddled our states with in history? Plenty. Look at the fraud in Medicare and Medicaid, or the running of the US Post Office as examples. Remember those $1000 hammers in the military? How about the VA Medical System – better than nothing but could it be run more efficiently and could care be better? You betcha, by a long shot.

No republican is willing to say that healthcare reform is not needed. But a loaded down, minefield-laden nightmare is not the answer. A majority of people DO NOT WANT THIS BILL. Now, the libs will call us spoilers. Tell me this – what gets an elderly woman, a young man, or a middle-aged mom to get on a bus, in a car, on a train, to visit capitol hill in the middle of the week, at last minute notice, so that their voice can be heard? What gets a doctor to completely rearrange her patient schedule so that she can participate? What gets citizens who can’t be there to get on the phones and call every representative they can? This bill, and their passion for democracy. That’s what.

Conservative leaders tell us many members on both sides are listening to voters. I sure as heck hope so. This is a democracy, which means we have a voice. But even more than that, it is the will of the people that guides our process. All we can do is vote someone into office that we hope will listen to the majority of the people he or she represents.

I’d like you to read Sarah Palin’s latest Facebook post. If you don’t have a Facebook account, and you are concerned about conservative values, I encourage you to create a page. At the very least, it will keep you informed. Sarah Palin has used this as a platform to speak to us, and I believe although unconventional, it allows her an unfiltered opportunity to speak to everyone. Please read her comments and follow the link provided.

By SARAH PALIN – Speaker Pelosi: Your Blue Dogs are Howling
Today at 3:47am AST

Like many Americans, I’m very concerned about the efforts underway to rush through the 2,000 page Pelosi health care bill this weekend. Why the rush? That’s a lot of pages to read. Why not give everyone the chance to read it and debate it?

How much will this bill cost us? It’s unclear because the figures coming out of Washington keep changing – and always in the direction of costing more, not less. The latest numbers show it will cost more than a trillion dollars over the decade, but when has a government program ever come in on or under budget?

How will we pay for it? Taxes, of course – and not just on the “rich” (you know, the people who spur the economy by buying goods and running companies that employ people), but also on just about everyone, especially small businesses – the job-creating engine of our economy. One of the points of health care reform was to help small businesses with the cost, but this bill hurts them – and right at a time when so many Americans are out of work and need the jobs that small businesses produce.

What’s in this bill? The “death panel” provision is in it. Medicare cuts are in it. Coverage of illegal immigrants is in it. And federal funding for abortion is in it. I commend the many Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats who are taking a principled stance to fight this.

I had a message for Speaker Pelosi in a speech I gave last night for the Wisconsin Right to Life – “please, please don’t break the ‘transparency promise’ by prohibiting at least a vote of your colleagues on funding abortion-on-demand.”

Speaker Pelosi has already broken many promises thus far in this “reform” exercise. She promised that this would be a bi-partisan effort, but the bill she’s pushing isn’t bi-partisan. She promised that the final version of the bill would be posted online 72 hours before it comes to a vote so that the American people could clearly see what’s in it and how we will pay for it. But she broke that promise too when she decided to rush the bill to a vote this weekend.

The speaker must be held accountable for her broken promises. Now is the time for Americans who believe in the free market and who believe that we need policies that promote job growth instead of job loss to say once and for all, “Enough!” Stand up and make your voices heard before it’s too late. Call and email your representatives and tell them to vote “no” on Pelosi’s train wreck of a health care bill, or else we will vote “no” to sending them back to Washington when we go to the polls in less than 12 months.

Today is a very important day – be informed!

Sarah Palin Speaks at Wisconsin Right to Life

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 7, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Last night Sarah Palin spoke at Wisconsin Right to Life. Fellow C4Per, K. Carpenter, was there and has provided a detailed report of what the governor spoke about. I expected her words to be passionate, heart-felt, and rooted in love for God and life. That’s exactly what they were.

Carpenter writes:

Governor Palin then began to tell a story of a conversation she and one of her friends in Alaska had a few weeks ago. Her friend had picked up a couple of the relatively new $1 dollar gold colored coins. They were discussing what was missing off of the front of the coins. Those four little words that have gotten America through her most troubling moments, “In God we trust”. As she observed; those four little words have been pushed off to the side of the coin. No longer prominently displayed on the face of the coin but those words have now been hidden on the outer edge of the coin. As she observed, this is kind of where we, as a Nation, have shoved God in our own lives. She even stated that she had kind of done that with her own pro life movement. Yes, she was always pro-life but it was not really something she prominently displayed until she became pregnant with Trig.

Oh boy, when she talks about Trig, her entire persona just lights up. You can tell this woman is completely in love with that little boy. Governor Palin admitted that she was afraid before Trig was born on how she would handle a little boy with special needs. She also mentioned how she and Todd chose to work through the problems together.

The governor also spoke briefly about Bristol and the choices she had to make and the love and joy that Tripp has brought to their lives. Clearly, Governor Palin is very proud of her daughter and her grandson that is almost a year old. Governor Palin stated that people make mistakes but a beautiful child came as a result of that mistake. A mistake is no reason to take a life.

Please go over to Conservatives4Palin and read the entire article.

While there are many isssues on which individuals can agree to disagree, life is not one of them. It’s too valuable, too precious, too fragile. I could rattle off a list of why I respect Sarah Palin as a leader and as a person. At the top of that list is her appreciation for life and refusal to compromise that position. She’s not afraid to take a stand. Our nation needs this, and our unborn certainly do.

K. Carpenter ends her article with this:

Governor Palin left us with these words: “Don’t ever let anyone tell you to sit down and shut up”!

Don’t worry, Gov, not sitting down, not shutting up, just getting started–like you.

Sarah Palin’s Urgent Message

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 7, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Today is a very important day in our nation. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing her liberal health care reform agenda which the majority of Americans have already said they don’t want. While everyone will agree that some type of reform is beneficial, a government take-over is not the answer. Who in their right minds would want bureaucracy getting between them and their doctors?

Over the past few months, we the people have voiced opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions, coverage of illegal aliens, and “death panels.” So what response have President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and other far Left pushers given? They’ve lied to the American people about what’s in the Bill and have attempted to ram it through.

Sarah Palin has given herself to battling the horrors of this Bill for months, refusing to be silenced in spite of President Obama, members of his administration, and many in the mainstream media going on the attack in a desperate attempt to discredit her. The last thing they wanted was someone of her influence to get the word out to the people. But she did–and she still is.

Today she issued a message to the American people via Facebook. It says in part:

Speaker Pelosi: Your Blue Dogs are Howling

I had a message for Speaker Pelosi in a speech I gave last night for the Wisconsin Right to Life – “please, please don’t break the ‘transparency promise’ by prohibiting at least a vote of your colleagues on funding abortion-on-demand.”
