Governor Palin Fires Up Missoula Crowd

Posted by Sheya on September 12, 2010

The Missoulian reports:

Praising God and America, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin brought an adoring crowd to its feet with her message of faith, family and the power of prayer during a Sunday fundraising event to support a Christ-centered Missoula women’s residential center.

“God and family and country – take a stand in that order and things fall into place,” Palin told a sold-out crowd of 1,600 at the Hilton Garden Inn during her 40-minute talk at the “Raise the Roof” capital campaign for Teen Challenge.

“Taking a stand for God is not always easy … but it is always right and worthwhile,” Palin said.

God and prayer help people find their true calling and innate talents, she said, and in God’s “cosmic calculus” for each of us he provides the lessons we each must learn in our individual journeys.

Teen Challenge, she said, is an example of God’s work in action. Each day, the national program helps alcoholics become sober, drug addicts come clean and helps scared unwed teen mothers turn that hardship into life’s great blessing.

There are no perfect families, Palin said – and family isn’t just who you are born into, but who you choose to be around.

In the inevitable troubled times, it is faith in God – and prayer – that see people through.

[…]

To the roar of her appreciative crowd, Palin fired off several one-liners over the course of her talk.

“Why is it called the far right when it is just common sense?” she asked. “The government that governs least governs best.”

Robust applause erupted when Palin boldly laid out her no-holds-barred opinion about the way the country is currently being governed.

“The things they are doing in Washington, D.C., are absolutely whacked,” she said. “They are upside-down.”

When the crowd quieted, Palin continued with her thoughts on the current state of affairs in America and on leadership.

Not wanting to get “too political,” Palin shared, but touched lightly on her beliefs.

“I love my country and I love our system, but government can’t fix the problems – government is the problem,” she said. “Government can’t dry a tear or lend a shoulder or put back together a family, or country or state.”

The missoulian tweeted

Sarah Palin signs a T-shirt for Teen Challenge, which auctions it off for $3,500. Palin says she’ll add another $3,500 of her own.
