Gov. Palin: “Our Time of Choosing…Glory or Shame”

Posted by Ron Devito on February 5, 2011

We face the same problems today as when Ronald Reagan delivered his Time of Choosing speech 47 years ago, Governor Palin said tonight in her keynote address to the Young America’s Foundation Reagan 100 celebration. “This is our time of choosing….how we answer will be our glory or our shame.” In Reagan’s Time of Choosing speech, most often referred to as “The Speech,” he said we faced a choice: socialism or free markets…”the swamp or the stars.”

“When government picks winners and losers, we get stuck with the losers,” Gov. Palin said.

She recounted the ascent of Ronald Reagan. “In 1976, conservatives heard him. In 1980, the nation heard him. In 1984, the world listened.”

Gov. Palin summarized several of the core principles of Reagan Conservatism. She spoke about the need to re-establish ourselves as a creditor and manufacturing nation, not simply a service economy. She emphasized that an “all-of-the-above” approach to domestic energy production is critical to national security and prosperity. She re-affirmed that we should foster a culture that values innocent life, that we are an exceptional nation, and that our military is a force for good in the world.

Following her speech, Gov. Palin graciously stayed for a photo line where each person present was photographed with her.
