Reflections On The Day Gov. Palin Changed The Nation

I was asked to do a post on my reflections of Gov. Palin’s nomination for VP of the Republican Party. My wife and I actually started following Gov. Palin right after she was elected Governor of the state of Alaska. We joined the Draft Gov. Palin for VP movement over a year before she was actually picked. I truly believed that Gov. Palin could change the destructive course our Republic was on and bring common sense back to DC.

Right before the nomination it was announced that Gov. Palin would not be the pick and that she was not even under consideration for the VP spot. It was pretty depressing because I was convinced she was the right person. The morning of the announcement I had woke up extra early to see if there had been a leak and Fox News was reporting that someone matching Gov. Palin’s description may have flown in. I excitedly ran and told my wife that it was Gov. Palin.

For the first time in my life I understood what Democrats meant when they talk about the impact that JFK and RFK had on them. It was exciting to have a nominee that we had fought so hard for, but the greatest impact by far was how I felt as a father with daughters. I can’t describe it, but it felt like for the first time they could truly achieve anything, even the presidency if they so desired.

For years I told my kids about Margaret Thatcher, but she was from my day. Now my kids would have someone from their lifetime to look up to. I belive Gov. Palin changed the nation even though she did not win the election. She changed it because she showed girls every where that they could be a conservative family woman, career woman, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-life and make it.

This is what I will always be grateful to Gov. Palin for; the example that she is to my daughters and future generations of women yet to be born. So thank you Gov. Palin and I look forward with great anticipate to what the future may hold.
