Palin and Supporters: We Will Restore America – Together
Posted by traceyporreca on October 7, 2011
By now, those of you who support Sarah Palin have heard or read her announcement regarding a potential presidential run. Although I am not surprised, it still gives me pause to see how some are reacting to this news.
Gov. Palin never promised she would run, nor did she ask those of us who support her to create blogs and organize groups in support of a possible presidential run. Being frustrated is understandable. So many of us see the direction this country is going in, especially after the last 3 years of the Obama administration, and many see a Palin presidency as the only solution to that problem. But the ideas and ideals that are ensconced within the essence of a Palin presidency originate from Gov. Palin herself, and she is not going anywhere folks. That same spirit, that same excitement is still there. Gov. Palin has told us all along that you don’t need a title to make a difference. What better way to prove that point at this time?
Our country was founded, and our constitution crafted, by individuals who believed in a citizenry form of government. Palin the citizen feels she can be more effective as that – a citizen. It is no accident she titled her announcement “Restoring America Together.” I for one can’t wait to hear what she has to say about the current field of candidates and any future candidates that might announce. I am anxious to see who she supports. I feel she is a leader and this is how she has chosen to lead at this time – as a citizen.
I believe, as she said on the Bob and Mark show, that she had every intention of running. I do not believe (as some have intimated) that she “knew all along” she would make this announcement. Whatever her reasons for not running, they are hers and we all should respect that. I don’t want Gov. Palin or anyone else going into the office of the presidency simply because she feels it is expected of her by others. This is a Herculean task, running this country. I feel that Gov. Palin is perfectly suited for this position, but only if this is the right time for her and only if she feels this is how she can be most effective.
Those who did not originally support her are rumored to be breathing a collective sigh of relief, but I believe that is also a misplaced response. She has always been a formidable voice, all the way back to her time on the oil and gas commission, as a Wasilla City Mayor, and as our governor. She will continue to be a voice to be heard on the United States political forefront. The discussion regarding Obamacare, the Tea Party, and crony capitalism are just a few of the national dialogues she has enhanced and led. Her intelligence, her willingness to jump in and say and do what needs to be said and done, is still available to us. This is just the next chapter. I for one am excited to see what the next chapter will be. Trust her folks. It’s our time to Restore America, Together.
