Palin – Ryan 2012?

Posted by joshpainter on April 6, 2011

– by Josh Painter

Jonah Goldberg makes the case for Paul Ryan as the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee:

That would require taking off from the budget committee from August to November — unless of course the Republicans won, in which case he’d have to take off considerably more time.

Meanwhile, there’s really no one who unifies the party more than Ryan and, with the possible exception of Rubio, there’s nobody who’d make a more formidable or attractive vice presidential candidate. I’m sure many of the presidential candidates would be uneasy about tapping Ryan since it would probably mean endorsing Ryan’s plan to one extent or another.

Ah, but Sarah Palin has already done that, calling it “serious & necessary reform” and a “good start” toward a balanced federal budget.

Yes, speculation about a possible vice presidential candidate at this stage of the banquet is a bit like putting the dessert before the salad, but it’s interesting food for thought nevertheless.

Palin: 5 Myths about Sarah

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 15, 2010

Sarah Palin in Alaska Governor's Office

Finally, an article about Sarah Palin that paints an accurate picture of the woman whose star has risen quickly even with the so-called professional media, AKA “JournoListers”, conspiring at every juncture. ~Jackie~

From http://www.washingtonpost.com:

Think you know Sarah Palin? The former Alaska governor has been in the spotlight ever since John McCain named her as his running mate on Aug. 29, 2008. Yet, while practically everybody has an opinion about Palin, not all of those opinions are grounded in reality. Many of them are based more on a “Saturday Night Live” caricature than on the living, breathing, 46-year-old mother of five. The real Sarah Palin is a complex woman who has risen in no time from obscurity to the stratosphere of American politics, fusing celebrity and populism in novel ways. Now that she’s laying the foundation for a possible presidential run in 2012, it’s worth taking a moment to separate the fact about Palin from the fable. More

Surprisingly Not Very Surprising: Sarah Palin More Respected Than Joe Biden, Al Gore

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 22, 2009

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll has some very interesting bits of data scattered within. As expected in this poll, Barack Obama’s favorable/unfavorable numbers are upside down, and support for his unconstitutional “health care reform” has collapsed.

Being an NBC poll, the internals are about what you’d expect:

Out of the 1008 questioned, democrats are over sampled by 6 percentage points over Republicans, though those who claim to have voted for Obama vs McCain are closer with only 3 points between them. So that sort of brings it back a little closer to reality.

Ninety percent of those polled are registered voters, not always the most reliable sample, as out of those polled, only sixty-seven percent voted. So one would have to consider this a soft sample. In other words those polled may, or may not reflect the mood of the nation as well as a sample that contained a higher percentage of likely voters. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 percent.

What is interesting though is what is down further into the poll. Half of those polled were asked who they respected the most and half were asked who they respected the least. This yields some remarkable findings:

Now I’m going to mention some people who have served in public life at some point in the past decade. Please tell me which one or two of these people, if any, you have the most regard and respect for

THIS TABLE HAS BEEN RANKED BY THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE

Barack Obama………………….28

Colin Powell……………………..27

Bill Clinton………………………..21

George W Bush…………………17

Hillary Clinton……………………14

John McCain…………………….13

Sarah Palin……………………….13

Dick Cheney………………………9

Al Gore……………………………..8

Joe Biden…………………………..3

None…………………………………3

Not sure…………………………….3

Knowing the sample, that doesn’t seem all that unreasonable. What is simply remarkable is Joe Biden, the Vice President, with almost four decades in Congress is tied with “none of the above” and “I don’t have a clue” for dead last on the old respect-o-meter.

This next question is where it gets a bit more interesting:

Now I’m going to read you some people who have served in public life at some point in the past decade. Please tell me which one or two of these people, if any, you have the least regard and respect for.

THIS TABLE HAS BEEN RANKED BY THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE

George W Bush…………….33

Dick Cheney…………………27

Al Gore……………………….19

Barack Obama……………..19

Sarah Palin…………………..16

Bill Clinton…………………..14

Hillary Clinton………………10

Joe Biden……………………..9

John McCain…………………5

Colin Powell………………….1

None……………………………3

This is interesting to me mainly because it shows how just wording a question differently can yield somewhat different results. While in the first question Barack Obama is the most respected out of the bunch. When a different group is asked to name those who are least respected Obama has the dubious honor of finishing rather high in the ranking here as well. In fact, on the old disrespect-o-meter, more people have little regard for Obama than Sarah Palin.

What does this really mean? Practically nothing! But it tells us that in the grand scheme of things Sarah Palin may have a little work to do yet, when it comes to repairing her image, after being savaged by the media non-stop for a year. Of course, she has plenty of opportunities to do just that.

On the other hand, Barack Obama has done all he is ever going to do. While folks tend to like him personally, he consistently earns poor marks for actual job performance, which is what matters. So, for Obama, it’s all downhill from here.

Going Rogue, An American Life, Is An American Treasure

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 29, 2009

If you are not one of the nearly one million people who have purchased and read Sarah Palin’s new book, Going Rogue, An American Life, then you are missing out on one of the really great treats and treasures of our time.

One doesn’t actually read Going Rogue, they experience it. You experience Sarah Palin’s life as she takes you from a young girl growing in the rugged Alaska wilderness through her days as a championship basketball player, a city councilwoman, mayor, oil and gas regulator, reformer, Governor, and vice presidential candidate. All told in Sarah’s wonderfully enjoyable way.

The book is so much more than just an account of Sarah Palin’s life though. Rush Limbaugh has called it “truly one of the most substantive policy books” that he has ever read, and that it is. However, you won’t find a single chart, graph, or bullet point anywhere in the book. Going Rogue is a book of philosophy, and book of strategy. Going Rogue is a book of great inspiration, and of great triumphs.

If up to this point you have only relied on reviews from the old, corrupt Obamacentric media, to tell you about Sarah’s book, then you have been poorly served. Most of the dishonest media will have you believe this is some sort of vindictive “tell all” or “score settling” book. Whatever it takes to sell papers and get ratings, I suppose.

The truth is, Sarah tells her story, all of her story, but is very generous, even to those who served her poorly, or caused her grief. If you buy the book looking for fireworks, or to see her dishing up dirt, you’ll be sorely disappointed. This just isn’t Sarah Palin’s style. Frankly we have written more extensively and brutally about those in Alaska who have attacked her and her family than Sarah herself does.

Sarah touches on the attacks by the hate bloggers, and she mentions the ties they have to Barack Obama through his campaign chief-of-staff, now White House adviser, Pete Rouse. She talks about the fictitious “Troopergate” affair, and how things completely changed once Obama’s team got involved. She spends a few pages discussing how Obama’s involvement, and how Chicago thug politics poisoned the once friendly atmosphere of Alaska politics.

Sarah also spends some time discussing the McCain campaign. Again, if you are looking for mud slinging, you are going to be highly disappointed. Sarah tells her side of the story, discusses the events in great detail. She takes responsibility for her errors, and points out where she felt things could have been done better. Not a vindictive word to be found.

Instead, Sarah takes you through the process of being chosen as a candidate, and running for Vice President. It’s a fascinating behind the scenes look at how things work.

Sarah has nothing but high praise for John McCain in the book. You know that she has a great admiration and respect for the Senator and his family. This comes through loud and clear every time she speaks of John and Cindy.

The same can be said for the much talked about Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson interviews. She talks about them, tells you where she went wrong, how she felt they were a bad idea to start with, then moves on to more important things.

You’ll find Sarah to be frank about things all throughout the book. This is a woman who is comfortable with herself and has no problem talking about the way she sees things. This is a strong, determined woman, who is also very open and candid as she tells her story.

Most of the book centers on her family and her remarkable life. Sarah takes us through her pregnancy with her beautiful son Trig. Here she lets us in on the intimate details, her inner most thoughts and feelings. You feel the love that Sarah has for all of her children in this book, and her great love and admiration for Todd as well. You can’t help but admire Todd as a wonderfully strong husband and father. A real man’s man, who supports Sarah in every way.

You’ll also be pleased to learn that Sarah’s wicked sense of humor shows up all throughout the book, making a good read into a great read.

This is what you really get with this book, a look at one of America’s most amazing women, up close, personal, and in her own words. You get a look at Alaska. You feel Sarah’s great love for her state, of the land, and of nature. You feel the magnificence of Alaska through her words.

Regular readers know that my background is not in politics, but in sales and management. While I’ve enjoyed reading books of all kind, I most enjoy books dealing with business, written by those great masters like Lee Iaccoca, Jim McKay, and Bob Lutz. Going Rogue is certainly this type of book. Going Rogue is truly a book on successful management, as well as business and political strategy.

If you read Sarah’s book, you will find it to be just as Limbaugh describes it, a substantial book on policy. Oh, she doesn’t go on and on for pages about how she will do things, there are no charts or bullet points. No lectures.

Instead, you’ll find that every page is a lesson in philosophy, policy, and strategy. All of this is intertwined with Sarah’s accounting of her life.

This is what makes Going Rogue one of those rare treasures of a book:

If you are a fan, who simply wants to know more about this remarkable woman, you will come away pleased and fulfilled. Sarah takes you through her life, and her style of writing makes you really experience it all. Her words have you visualizing the events as they unfold. You will come away with great admiration for Sarah and her family. You find these are truly nice people. Regular folks who you would like to have as your friends and neighbors.

If you are someone who is more interested in what makes Sarah tick, politically, well, you are certainly in for a treat! Again, there are no charts or graphs, but throughout the book, Sarah’s philosophy on life, and politics comes through. If you read Going Rogue, you will learn how she governed in Alaska, and how she would govern as President. How she looks at the world. What her policies on the economy, national security, and energy are.

If you are not already familiar with Sarah’s significant record of accomplishments, you will be by the time you are through. You will learn why Sarah had such a high approval rating (mid 80’s) among some of the most independent minded voters in America. You’ll learn why the democrat/communists, as well as the Republican “elites” fear her, and why millions support her.

You’ll also learn that Sarah is not some far right ideologue. Instead you’ll find that common sense is what rules the day. You’ll find someone who is willing to work with anyone, as long as they are working toward a common goal, and some good old fashioned common sense is being employed. You learn that Sarah Palin is someone who knows how to get things done.

Something else, you’ll learn that Sarah Palin is a bold leader. Sarah is not someone who is afraid to do big things, or afraid to do things differently to get results, and her record shows she gets results.

In the end, if you don’t read another book this year, you should read Going Rogue. This book is a pure joy to read, and you will find yourself not wanting to put it down. You will find Sarah to be likable, and inspiring. After all, this is a woman who was literally raised in a log cabin on the rugged landscape of Alaska, who has become one of America’s brightest shining stars.

Going Rogue, like Sarah Palin herself, is a real American treasure.

Sarah Palin: Living In Barack Obama’s Head Rent Free

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 5, 2009

Tuesday night the plans of Barack Obama and the democrat/communist party took some severe blows in New Jersey and Virginia. A strong message was sent by the American people that we are not pleased with Obama’s perverted vision for America. That he and his democrat/communist party are on the wrong track.

So who is the focus of White House greaseball David Axelrod? Sarah Palin!

That’s right, this supposed insignificant, washed up “quitter.” I mean that’s what the democrat/communists and their lap dogs in the media shout all day every day. For such an insignificant woman, Sarah sure does take up an incredible amount of the White House’s and the media’s air time on a daily basis!

Axelrod is proclaiming the White House is 2-0 against Sarah Palin after Tuesday’s elections in Virginia, New Jersey, and New York’s 23rd congressional district.

Now of course, they count the presidential loss by John McCain in this deal.

Looking back, the very second Sarah Palin stepped on the national stage Barack Obama and the democrat/communist party ceased to care about beating John McCain and went into full panic mode, followed by hyper attack mode, a mode that they are still in to this day!

The amount of gymnastics Obama and his team of Chicago street thugs and his Alaska Mafia have performed while trying to stop Sarah is nothing short of extraordinary. They have had their billionaire buddies fund schemes, they’ve coordinated with 3rd rate hate bloggers and so on. They’ve put the full force of the White House as well as their compliant media lackeys up against this supposedly insignificant, washed up moose hunter from Wasilla.

To borrow from Shakespeare, me thinks they doth protest too much!

Frankly, in politics, if your opponent is committing suicide you know the best thing to do is get out of their way and let them have at it. You certainly don’t break out in a cold sweat at the mere mention of her name!

If Sarah Palin was such a “disaster” these people would be promoting her, giving her soft ball interviews, and doing absolutely everything they could to make absolutely sure she was the GOP candidate in 2012.

Remember how John McCain was treated by a fawning media before he became the candidate, only to be attacked unmercifully by the same media once he had the nomination? Well, if Sarah was the “joke” they claim she is, that is the sort of treatment she would get.

You notice there is a distinct absence of attacks on Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, the media anointed “front runners.” You don’t have people running around with their hair on fire screaming they have to stop these two! There is no “stop Mitt Romney (or Mike Huckabee) at all costs” mentality among the democrat/communists!

They know they can easily beat them!

Let’s look at the White House’s so called “glorious victory” over this insignificant housewife.

In NY 23 the White House put forth a maximum effort. Barack Obama himself hosted a fund raiser for Bill Owens. At the last minute they parachuted in hundreds of seasoned Obama campaign operatives. The DNC spent a ton of money.

Joe Biden was sent in the day before the election.

OK, that’s probably a net loss and a gain for Sarah because he made the mistake of “acting stupidly” while attacking Sarah. Biden basically set him up for one of the ‘Cuda’s signature smack downs! How does that song go…”You don’t tug on Superman’s cape…you don’t spit in the wind…..”

Comically, our Vice President spoke to a “huge” crowd of 250 people, 50 of which were media . For perspective, Sarah was in the same area this summer and drew over 20,000 locals.

Anyhow, back to NY-23.

Here’s what Doug Hoffman, and in the White House’s frantic mind, Sarah Palin faced. Doug Hoffman came into this special election unknown and poorly funded. His reasoning for the challenge was the fact that a backroom deal saw a candidate that was more radical than half of the democrat/communists in the NY Assembly being trotted out to run as a “Republican.”

Obviously, being a lifelong Conservative Republican, that just didn’t compute with accountant Doug Hoffman. Made no sense. This woman wasn’t just a democrat lite “moderate” she was a full on radical democrat/communist “progressive,” who it now appears was a plant, judging from her actions after she dropped out of the race.

Now seeing the situation, Conservative leaders nationwide took up Doug’s cause. Dick Armey and his Club For Growth were early supporters. Conservative icon Fred Thompson and his wife Jeri were strong supporters as well. In fact, Jeri was working incredibly hard behind the scenes doing whatever it took to get some support.

Then came Sarah’s endorsement. An unconditional, all in, full on support for Doug, from Facebook. On the strength of one posting on Facebook, hundreds of thousands of dollars started flooding into Hoffman’s campaign coffers in just one day. Doug went from a distant third to front runner status over night.

In the end, Doug was not able to overcome the damage done by DeDe Scozzafava, who was given some sort of deal by the White House (Rahm Emanuel himself spoke with her) to join the democrat/communist effort to stop Doug Hoffman.

In short, here’s how it went. You have Doug Hoffman, a mild mannered, camera shy, slightly nerdy, non politician accountant, turned American patriot, who went from unknown to within a couple of points of being a United States congressman.

The effort to defeat this man was enormous. You not only had the full force and effort of the White House, and Barack Obama coming to bear, you also had, up until the last days, the full force and efforts, as well as a reported $1 million from the Republican party to support the slug they picked, and attack Hoffman.

On top of that, you had this democrat/communist plant, “republican” poseur DeDe Scozzafava turning around, endorsing Bill Owens and campaigning for Bill Owens. Plus, a sycophantic national media totally in love with the President cheerleading all the way.

In the end, you have a great patriot, but inexperienced candidate who went from 18-20 percent in the polls to 46 percent in the real vote, based on the count as it now stands. (There are still absentee votes to count and several vote machines were impounded, which means there may have been some typical democrat/communist fraud)

The final “score” was Owens/Obama 49 and Hoffman/Palin 46. (I’m using the White House’s logic here)

Hmmm. To put this into perspective, since the White House wants this to be all about Sarah:

One the White Houses side, you had efforts by Obama, Biden, Emanuel, ACORN, Scozzafava, and the adoring media, plus highly experienced ground troops. Even better, in their efforts Obama and company were aided by a feckless Republican effort that saw an incredible amount of money thrown away, Newt Gingrich insulting the entire Conservative movement, and the GOP “machine” working to undermine Hoffman.

The extent of the “Hoffman/Palin effort” was a single post on Facebook from Sarah asking America to get behind the patriot from New York!

Yes, I know this is oversimplifying all of the hard work that followed on Doug’s behalf, but I’m using the White House’s logic here, so bear with me.

We have a maximum effort, a full court press by the White House, teamed up with a maximum effort, a full court press by the GOP, and they could only win this race by three points?

All of these big bad “political heavyweights” and they could only manage a nail biting squeaker against a hockey mom and her laptop posting on a social networking website from 4000 miles away!

Man, if these pathetic little people want to crow about that, I say let ‘em!

However, if we REALLY want to take their absurd premise further down the road, they look much, much worse. Using the White House’s own logic, that every race is a race against Sarah Palin, and no one else, let’s look at Virginia.

In Virginia Sarah was asked to record messages to voters for the get out the vote efforts. These “robocalls” were used to gin up support for all of the candidates. How did that turn out again?

Oh yeah, it was a blowout!

Not only did Republicans sweep all three top jobs, they did it big. All of them won with 15-20 plus point margins of victory!

Wanna keep score that way White House?

How about Sarah Palin 3 White House 1* (*with assist from the NRCC and the GOP)

Now we won’t even talk about the disastrous showing in New Jersey. Barack Obama all but moved to New Jersey in an effort to drag Jon Corzine across the finish line. Not only did the normal ACORN shenanigans take place, but it was found that elements of the DNC were actually funding efforts of the third party candidate Chris Daggett who was syphoning votes from the brand new Governor-elect, Chris Christie.

As Rush Limbaugh put it, Barack Obama losing in New Jersey is like Fidel Castro losing in Cuba!

No, Sarah didn’t put forth any efforts in New Jersey, but looking at her past efforts on the behalf of candidates, Christie might have won by a larger margin if she had!

The White House wants you to forget the very first Palin/Obama showdown of the hopenchange era. This battle took place before Obama even took office. I’m speaking, of course, about the Georgia runoff race for the U.S. Senate.

Georgia rules state someone must win by 50.1 percent of the vote, or there must be a runoff between the highest vote getters. This was a three man race, so incumbent Saxby Chamliss, the Republican, faced a challenge. Hopenchange fever was still in the air, and everyone was down there helping push for the democrat/communist candidate. On the Republican side, every name brand guy was there. All on both sides played to sparse crowds. It was a dead heat race according to the last poll taken going into the weekend before the vote.

Sarah Palin was dispatched to Georgia. She came in on a Sunday night and went to a fund raiser. The next day she held four rallies in support of Chambliss. The crowds were huge, and in the end, Saxby won a 16 point blowout! He loudly praised Sarah, talking her up to anyone who would listen!

Again, using White House logic, such that it is, that puts the score at Sarah Palin 4 White House 1*

Now I know the White House counts their win over McCain as a loss for Sarah, and yes, I guess it was, but oh man, McCain’s loss had nothing to do with the ‘Cuda. Every indication is she was worth 10-15 points in that contest to McCain. It was going to be a McCain loss of biblical proportions before Sarah joined the ticket. She drew incredible and enthusiastic crowds everywhere she went, where there were none before. She created an excitement that was nonexistent before.

It was an inept campaign, and a poor uninspiring top of the ticket that hurt McCain. The complete uselessness of those in the McCain campaign can never be overstated. But, again, using the White House’s own methodology, let’s give them a point.

Sarah Palin 4 White House 2*

Now, lets look at some facts, every single candidate that Sarah has been involved with since November 3, 2008 has seen incredible gains in their polling numbers. Every single candidate that Barack Obama has gotten involved with, except one, has seen massive losses.

Again, I’m using Obamalogic here, such that it is. Sarah campaigns for Chambliss and he gains 14-16 points. Sarah writes a Facebook post and Doug Hoffman gains anywhere from 24-28 percentage points, depending on which polling you look at.

That’s incredibly strong.

So far, an Obama endorsement is pretty much the kiss of death!

Let’s see, the guy takes his circus to Copenhagen to personally shill for his corrupt buddies in Chicago to help them get an Olympic date. Chicago was the first eliminated from consideration

Obama is all over Virginia, and loses huge, all three top jobs going to Republicans in a huge way. Obama all but takes up residence in Jon Corzine’s New Jersey guest room, and he loses the bluest state in the union!

Seems to me if you want at least a chance at winning an election, it’s Sarah Palin, not Barack Obama who you want on your side!

All of this incredibly silly gymnastics from the White House to somehow spin an epic loss on Tuesday into a win against Sarah Palin just shows you that she is living in their heads rent free!

Sarah has unpacked her bags, propped her feet up on their collective couch and is having a great time just toying with them. It’s breathtaking to watch!

Being “Like Ronald Reagan” The Only Positive Political Description

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 17, 2009

“Progressive” is becoming more of a dirty word, but all political labels – except “being like Ronald Reagan” – are falling into disfavor with many U.S. voters, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

“Liberal” is still the worst and remains the only political description that is viewed more negatively than positively. Being like Reagan is still the most positive thing you can say about a candidate.

So says the latest Rasmussen polling on the subject. Now for conservatives, “like Ronald Reagan” has been the only acceptable position for a politician to have, for a long, long time.

I’m sure the David Frums, Peggy Noonans, Colin Powells, and Kathleen Parkers of the world are hyperventilating right about now, as they are the ones always telling us the “era of Reagan is over.” I guess they are wrong once again! Shocking, huh?

It’s been twenty years since the great Renaldus Magnus, as he is affectionately known, has sat in the Oval Office, so why is he just as appealing today as he was back in his prime? I think it’s because Reagan was such a strong leader and just a great man, but that is probably way too simplistic.

Ronald Reagan was part of the American consciousness for most of the last century. I won’t attempt to write a biography here – there are plenty out there for folks to read and enjoy – but some of the highlights of Reagan’s career and how we came to love the man are certainly something to talk about.

Reagan was an actor, and while some called him a “B-Movie Actor,” he also gave us one of the most memorable characters of all time when he played George Gipp in the movie “Knute Rockne, All American.” While the movie itself was about famed Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne, one of the most memorable performances was Ronald Reagan playing George Gipp. Gipp was a great football player who died too young of a strep infection.

Now I’m going to tell you something I’ve kept to myself for years. None of you ever knew George Gipp. He was long before your time, but you all know what a tradition he is at Notre Dame. And the last thing he said to me, “Rock,” he said, “sometime when the team is up against it and the breaks are beating the boys, tell them to go out there with all they’ve got and win just one for the Gipper. I don’t know where I’ll be then, Rock,” he said, “but I’ll know about it and I’ll be happy.”

Pat O’Brien as Knute Rockne

“Win one for the Gipper” became part of the American lexicon. As for Reagan, the Gipper nickname stuck and became just another affectionate name we know him by.

Reagan was much more than just an actor. though. He was President of the Screen Actors Guild and a solid spokesman. He was also a democrat, who famously said: “I didn’t leave the democrat party, the democrat party left me.”

And Reagan, who had a sharp wit, never missed the chance to have fun with that:

In fact, one of the things that we all loved about Ronald Reagan was his ability to speak well and deliver great one liners as well as funny stories.

But Reagan was more than a good line and a bright smile. Reagan was also someone who loved America with all of his heart. He saw America as a “shining city on a hill” the world’s last best hope. Reagan was always concerned that Americans understood our great gifts of freedom and kept a constant watch for things that would cause Americans to lose those freedoms.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Ronald Reagan

What really sets Reagan apart, at least for me, is how not only were his warnings appropriate for their time, but they can be applied to today’s events as well. In fact, it’s uncanny how the same things Ronald Reagan warned us about – communism and the slightly less oppressive socialism – are still real threats today.

For example, no one understood the danger to freedom and liberty that socialized medicine posed better than Ronald Reagan. Back in 1961, as they had been for decades, the democrat party was trying to shove socialized health care down an unwilling America’s throat. Reagan took part in the “Operation Coffee Cup Campaign” and went on a speaking tour, forcefully warning about the dangers of allowing the government to control health care.

Anyone who has actually read H.R. 3200, the most likely version of Obamacare to pass, knows Reagan was right then and even more right now! Obamacare is nothing less than a complete and total usurpation of the Constitution. It totally remakes American society, turning it into a communist state, with a centrally controlled government and centrally planned economy.

America was designed to be a loose confederation of states, coming together as a Republic for mutual benefit but with each remaining sovereign. It’s what the 10th Amendment to the Constitution is all about. Once Obamacare is passed, states rights and most individual rights go right out the window.

If we as Americans are to retain our freedoms and liberties, it is imperative that we listen to Ronald Reagan. It is imperative that we stop the government’s attempt to “reform” health care.

Now I am not saying health care doesn’t have its issues. It does. But health care in America is still the best in the world, has the highest quality, and is available in the most timely manner to the greatest number of people.

There are common sense plans out there. Plans that include major tort reform and the ability for Americans to shop for insurance nationwide rather than just within their state. There are thousands of insurance companies nationwide. The Obama regime claims to want “more competition” for the consumer’s dollar. What better way than to open the door for all Americans to shop all of the various insurance companies nationwide?

Ronald Reagan didn’t just warn us about socialized medicine, though. Few understood better than Reagan that liberalism was a losing proposition. That liberalism made absolutely no sense whatsoever. That liberalism was a contradiction all unto itself.

“Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

Ronald Reagan

In another speech that absolutely applies today, Ronald Reagan speaks out on the dangers of allowing liberals to be elected to positions of responsibility.

In 1964 Reagan gave this speech at the Republican National Convention in support of Barry Goldwater, the candidate for President. The speech, entitled “A Time For Choosing” is one of the most iconic of all time. In fact, it has come to be known simply as “The Speech.”

If I had my way, this video would be required viewing by every school kid in America. In fact, it would be a required course to get a high school diploma, and there would be advanced teaching on it in colleges and universities nationwide.

It’s just that important!

What is rather chilling is how we can listen to Ronald Reagan 45 years later and apply absolutely everything he is saying to our current situation.

This might help explain why “like Ronald Reagan” is still the best thing you can say about a politician!

“The Speech”

Here’s a bit of an exercise for you. After watching the video, write down just how many things Reagan was talking about that not only exist in our current climate, but are even a greater threat today. Reagan understood all too well just how dangerous it was to allow government to grow too large and too powerful.

Ronald Reagan also warned that the “once honorable democrat party” was on a strong march towards socialism, or Marxism, as he called it. Today, we understand it as communism, plain and simple. We now have a President who was raised by communists, mentored by communists, and is now surrounded by and seeks advice from self avowed communists.

“A socialist is someone who has read Lenin and Marx. An anti-socialist is someone who understands Lenin and Marx”

Ronald Reagan

We are left asking ourselves just how in the hell this happened!

Ronald Reagan was an inspiration to America at a time when we needed it the most. America was in a slump. The American morale was as low as it had ever been, and the current national embarrassment, Jimmy Carter, had all but destroyed the economy forever. Carter had also allowed our military readiness to become dangerously low.

Our foreign policy was a joke. Under Carter, radical Islam was able to come to power in Iran and the greater Middle East. We are all suffering to this day because of Carter’s failures in this area. And frankly, our current White House occupant is following Carter’s lead.

I always laugh at the imagery surrounding Barack Obama. We were told when he was elected that the sea levels would lower, the skies would be brighter, and it would be rainbows and unicorns for all.

Well, I remember just how defeated Americans felt during the Carter years. Just how bad it was. We actually had a “misery index” concocted by the media just to tell us how bad our life sucked on any given day. Double digit unemployment, double digit inflation, and double digit interest rates on loans was the way of life in America.

Ronald Reagan represented real hope. It truly was “morning in America” once Reagan was elected. Reagan brought an intangible “it” factor with him that many leaders will never have. Reagan exuded optimism. He was our oldest President ever to take office, and yet he was the very picture of virility. Reagan was both a strong and forceful leader and America’s father figure, a kind man with a reassuring smile that simply told you everything was going to be just fine.

In no time America’s morale was high. America’s confidence was on the rebound. People were very proud to be Americans again. I remember those days well, and they were simply electric. The new feeling of optimism was amazing. You honestly felt like you could achieve anything.

I was a young man back then, but the feelings of this energy effected me greatly. Reagan had so much confidence that it spilled over onto the rest of us. It made us all see that absolutely anything was possible.

Now it took more than a few years for America to start to recover from the Carter fiasco – in fact, almost all of Reagan’s two terms. If a person were to go back, and just look at raw numbers, they would see that much of Reagan’s presidency saw economic numbers that, until the Obama presidency, wouldn’t have been all that stellar, but compared to where we had been, they were great.

The greatest affirmation of the difference Reagan made and of the love for him back then was his 1984 re-election. Now Reagan won an absolute landslide when he defeated Jimmy Carter in 1980. Reagan won 44 of 50 states in a three-way race that saw Republican John Anderson run as an Independent. Anderson being what we would call a RINO today. Reagan got 50.7 percent of the raw vote and Carter got 41 percent.

In 1984 though, the American people rewarded Reagan with an incredible 49 state win against former Vice President Walter Mondale, who barely won his home state and carried D.C. The Electoral College victory was 525 to 13, raw vote 58.8 percent to 40.6. To me that says it all about the confidence America had in Ronald Reagan.

History tells us that Reagan wasn’t a perfect man, but he was a great man. Reagan was able to shepherd American through some tough times. He defeated the Soviet Union without firing a shot. He brought new confidence to America, something that had been lacking. In time, it was the Reagan revolution that would end the 40 years of disastrous Democrat Party control of Congress, leading to a stunning victory for congressional Republicans in 1994.

It was truly Reagan’s moral compass, though, his strength and integrity, that made him such a great leader. A man among men. It was the moral clarity he had that allowed him to look into the eyes of the American people and tell them liberalism, communism, and socialism were evil. It was that same moral clarity that allowed him to stand at the Berlin Wall and demand, “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

It was that same moral clarity, that same strength and integrity Reagan had then, that still makes being “like Ronald Reagan” so desired today.

So where do we take it from here? Who is “like Ronald Reagan”?

Some names that come to mind are people like Dick Cheney. Say what you will about the former Vice President – when he speaks, he speaks with moral clarity, strength, wisdom, and with the love of our nation in his heart.

Liz Cheney is her father’s daughter. She is sharp, tough, and has a solid footing. Then there is Michelle Bachmann. While not as well known, she is certainly cut from the Reagan cloth. Strong, forceful, and unwavering in her beliefs and values.

But one simply cannot talk about leaders who are like Ronald Reagan without bringing up Sarah Palin. The comparisons are easy to make. Like Reagan, Sarah Palin is a strong leader with moral clarity.

Sarah has shown this clarity throughout her career. From battling her mentor on the Wasilla city council over his attempt to use his position to set up a monopoly for his company, to her legendary battle with Frank Murkowski’s “Corrupt Bastards Club.”

For those that don’t know the story, Sarah had been appointed as Chairman of the powerful Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, the agency that regulates oil and natural gas in Alaska. Sarah had been appointed by Governor Murkowski after she had lost her bid for Lt. Governor. She was charged with overseeing ethics in her position.

Before long, Sarah realized she had a really corrupt shop. After being told to back off by her boss, the Governor, Sarah stepped down, “quit” as they say. Had to be a really tough decision. This was a high paying gig, six figures, and a powerful position from which to launch herself to even more powerful positions. After all, Sarah’s star was on the rise!

After Sarah “quit” she made it her project to go after the bad actors. As a result, she went after pretty much the entire Republican Party leadership, a profile in courage in itself, and a sure fire case of political suicide. In the end, some went to prison, some paid fines, others were forced to resign. Then she ran for and won the governorship.

Once in office, she was a strong leader. She was able to bring about sweeping changes and one by one fulfilled her campaign promises.

Claude Sandroff over at the American Thinker talks about the virtue of Sarah Palin. We all know the story of her post-election experiences. Before Sarah ran for Vice President, the Republican Party, still smarting from the reforms she brought and the folks she took down, wasn’t exactly pleased with her, but she had a fairly cordial relationship with the Alaska Democrats in the legislature.

Then came the campaign. It has been well documented that Barack Obama brought Chicago style politics to Alaska through his campaign chief-of-staff, Pete Rouse, and Rouse’s longtime friendship with Alaska State Senator, Kim Elton. Their attempt to derail Sarah with the phony “Troopergate” witch hunt is also well documented

After Sarah lost her in her effort to be Vice President, no one would have thought the Alaska Mafia would have remained so dedicated to the Chicago masters, but how many times has a losing vice presidential candidate become even more popular and sought after!

The word came out from on high to keep the pressure on, and the Mafia started recruiting folks to file phony ethics complaints against her. There was already one misguided woman, Andree McLeod, who made a career out of filing outrageous complaints. But the rest were all manufactured to damage Sarah, by using a favorite Democrat/communist tactic, right out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules.”

This is where Sarah’s strength, courage, and moral clarity came into play. It would have been very simple to sit still and fight this stuff. I mean these charges were all nonsense, and all were thrown out. But the more she resisted, the more the Mafia filed, and at a quicker pace. And these leaches on society had not only cost Sarah personally, they had also effectively stopped her government from functioning and cost the taxpayers almost $2 million processing this mess. And if the pace of the complaints stayed the same for the rest of her term, these thieves were on track to cost the Alaska taxpayers as much as $10 million.

A lot of politicians would have stayed. They would have clung to power at all cost. Not Sarah Palin. As Sandroff puts it, this was:

“The very essence of virtue. It was Sir Thomas More resigning as Lord Chancellor and George Washington returning to Mount Vernon. It showed how rare virtue has become in our politics. It shows why we adore Sarah Palin and why we need her. And it explains why, even without office, she has become the most important political figure in America.”

One can only imagine the struggle Sarah had with this – or maybe it wasn’t a real struggle at all. Earlier in the year, just before a trip to visit her troops in Kosovo, Sarah Palin introduced Michael Reagan, the son of Ronald Reagan, at an event in Anchorage. While talking about how badly her critics wanted her to shut up and go away, she said this:

“They want me to sit down and shut up. But I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up. Politically speaking, if I die, I die, but I will know I have spoken up! Stand up, speak up, be bold! Forget political correctness!”

History shows that Sarah has not sat down, and is not shutting up! At the time, many could not understand what Sarah was doing when she “quit.” These people simply didn’t understand her unwinnable situation. These are the types who would have “fought to the end,” costing their constituents more tax dollars, and damaging their state.

This was a stroke of genius though, and one I believe Ronald Reagan would have understood. Sarah, a star basketball player, was simply passing the ball off to someone, Sean Parnell, who could continue on with her policies, and not be hassled.

“He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.”

Sun Tzu, the Art Of War

Now that is a nice story, as far as it goes. A compelling one, in fact. But it is not the only reason why Sarah Palin is “like Ronald Reagan.”

No one can argue she is powerful. Who in the world but Sarah Palin can change the entire national debate with a few paragraphs posted on a networking website?

Sarah Palin not only had the moral clarity to understand exactly what Obamacare is, she was also able to distill it all down to a level of basic understanding. Her “death panels” said it all. And it wasn’t just the fact Sarah understood that Obamacare would most certainly lead to the rationing of care – she had the courage to say it the way she said it. She knew full well the wrath of both political parties, as well as the fringe media – Obama’s media – would come at her with full force. Sarah called Obamacare “downright evil.”

We all know Ronald Reagan had moral clarity regarding the Soviet Union. He called them an “evil empire.” His critics in both parties, lost it every time he did this, but it didn’t stop him from saying it.

Before Reagan’s famous “tear down that wall” comment in his speech in Berlin, his advisers were telling him “no way” and to steer clear of that sort of thing. They had to be resuscitated after he said it! But Reagan knew in his heart it needed to be said.

Reagan lived to see the Berlin wall come down and to see millions of East Germans become free.

Before Sarah took up the fight, critics of Obamacare might as well have been talking to their houseplants. They were trying to nuance things. Trying to be “statesmen,” at least in their minds.

Sarah looked at this mess, saw great evil. She saw a situation, that if continued, would lead America to certain disaster, and cause all Americans to lose precious liberties and freedoms. It’s that ability to not only recognize evil wherever you see it but to also have the courage to do something about it.

While the other so-called leaders in the Republican party were saying “slow down” Sarah wrote, “Not no, but HELL no!”

Because of Sarah Palin and her inspiration to others, Obamacare is in shambles. And that gives us another “like Ronald Reagan” trait. Sarah Palin inspires people.

Sarah has been inspiring people for a long time, but her speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention was huge. Expectations were high, and she hit a home run. As Michael Reagan wrote days later in a column titled “Welcome Back Dad“:

“I’ve been trying to convince my fellow conservatives that they have been wasting their time in a fruitless quest for a new Ronald Reagan to emerge and lead our party and our nation. I insisted that we’d never see his like again because he was one of a kind.

I was wrong!

Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time he’s a she.

And what a she!

In one blockbuster of a speech, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin resurrected my Dad’s indomitable spirit and sent it soaring above the convention center, shooting shock waves through the cynical media’s assigned spaces and electrifying the huge audience with the kind of inspiring rhetoric we haven’t heard since my Dad left the scene.”

After Ronald Reagan lost his presidential primary bid to Gerald Ford in 1976, most considered him washed up, a has been. Critics in both parties called him stupid, lazy, naive, inexperienced, even though he had been Governor of California! He was a B-Movie actor. Some even said Reagan was dangerous!

Reagan was from tiny Tampico, Illinois. He went to the “wrong” school, Eureka College. And Reagan was a small-town country boy at heart his entire life.

The Democrats hated Reagan with a passion, and so did the blue-blood, country club elite Rockefeller Republicans. The American people loved Reagan, though, and obviously still do. God bless Ronald Reagan, and may his spirit always remain the spirit that inspires us all.

My Favorite Sarah Palin Moment Is Her RNC Debut

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on August 29, 2009

There are so many special Sarah Palin moments that it is hard to choose just one. But if I had to choose, I think that I would choose her debut at the 2008 Republican convention. There she wowed 40 million viewers as she gave one of the most powerful political speeches on record.

Other than her superb performance, what was so special about then Governor Palin’s RNC speech was the confidence she displayed in the face of a liberal media feeding frenzy that tried to discredit her practically from the moment she was announced as John McCain’s running mate. Vicious rumors were swirling on the Internet, but Sarah Palin did not flinch.

Instead, she strode gracefully and confidently onto the platform and delivered one of the best political speeches of our lifetime. She masterfully delivered her speech with wit and humor. Even the malfunction of her teleprompter did not cause her to skip a beat. Who can ever forget her statement that the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is “lipstick”!

Afterwards, her beautiful family joined her on the stage along with the McCain clan. That was a memorable moment also. Little did anyone know then how viciously she and her family would be attacked over the months ahead and that these attacks would eventually lead to her resignation as governor.

But Sarah Palin’s resignation as governor was not an end in itself but the launch of a greater role in the affairs of our country. She has stepped forward as a voice of opposition to efforts to dismantle our government and take away our freedoms. Sarah Palin is here to stay, and Sarah Palin supporters all over cannot wait to call her Madame President!

Sarah Palin, The World’s Greatest: A Tribute

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 17, 2009

Sarah Palin scored a great victory for the American people this past week, while putting Barack Obama and the entire democrat/communist party on the defensive. Obama was even forced to postpone his vacation and attempt to save his liberty and freedom stealing Obamacare fiasco!

While Palin eloquently issued simple, but powerful, statements on the evils of Obamacare, Obama himself held townhall meetings where he had to have planted guests posing as regular Americans to throw him softball questions that he couldn’t even answer correctly.

Obama, who sounded confused, disjointed, and rambling not only failed to counter Sarah Palin’s strong charges, but dug himself a bigger hole with the American people, further destroying the little credibility he has with America’s citizenry.

It was an incredible victory for America, and for Sarah Palin.

Note to the GOP, this is how you defeat Barack Obama’s swift march to communism! You take Obama head on, and you never stop!

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto, wrote simply: Palin Wins.

Others singing Sarah’s praises , include Robert A George from NBC”s San Fransisco’s affiliate who cautions the non-believers to take heed, as Sarah Palin is still the GOP’s superstar.

On the heels of all of this, Seth Adam Smith, one of our friends at Conservatives4Palin brings us this great video as a tribute to an amazing woman, Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin Inspires African Women To Run For President

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 13, 2009

Filed under news the state run media doesn’t want you to know:

According to the website Africa Matata, Miss Malawi, Perth Msiska has given up her crown to pursue a career in politics. She cites Sarah palin as her inspiration. As we all know, besides being a state championship winning basketball player, and marathon runner, Governor Palin put herself through college with the scholarships she earned competing in beauty pageants.

It is also reported that Malawian President, Bingu wa Mutharika was also inspired by John McCain when he picked Joyce Banda as his running mate.

Even better, Vice President Banda the first female Veep in Malawi’s history, will look to run as her party’s Presidential candidate in 2013.

It’s not surprising that Sarah Palin has inspired millions upon millions of Americans, but her effect as an inspirational leader world wide shouldn’t be forgotten.

Even liberals like former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown are saying positive things about Governor Palin. And liberal icon Camille Paglia has written in praise of Palin almost from the beginning of Sarah’s entrance onto the big stage.

Now that Governor Palin will be soon free of the democrat operatives who are costing Alaska taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars by filing their bogus harassment “ethics complaints” against her, look for her to be a serious player on the world stage.

Governor Palin has already stated she will be touring the nation speaking to crowds about conservative principles and supporting candidates that adhere to those principles. She has said she will support all who share her love for America, liberty, and freedom.

As a side note, no matter how much CNN tried to make a huge deal out of Barack Obama’s recent trip to Ghana, the Associated Press reports that few actually bothered to go and see Mr Hope and Change for themselves!
