Main Lesson Learned from Governor Palin in 2010

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 31, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

As 2010 winds down, I stop to reflect on what I’ve learned most from Governor Palin. I end the year with a very simple but profound lesson from her, as she has shown herself to be everything I already knew she was–authentic and fearless.

Governor Palin took on health care, the economy, the Ground Zero mosque, Iran, Arizona’s attempt to secure its own borders, Wikileaks, energy independence, and the Gulf oil spill. She became a political analyst for Fox News where she weighed in on pressing issues of the day, sometimes from the studios of New York, sometimes from her home in Wasilla. Governor Palin traveled the U.S., speaking up for Constitutional freedoms, and she selflessly went to Haiti to serve those still dealing with the effects of a devastating earthquake. She supported Bristol on “Dancing with the Stars,” took us through Alaska via “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” and wrote another successful book, reflecting on “family, faith, and flag.” She ushered in a new era of strong, active women and named them Mama Grizzlies, a distinction they still carry with pride. Perhaps most notable, she helped change the face of Congress by successfully endorsing a plethora of candidates–male and female, Black, Hispanic, Indian, and White, who will put an end to business as usual in Washington and do the people’s business instead.

Impressive as this partial list of Governor Palin’s accomplishments is, what stands out most to me is not what she did, but how she did it. Whereas Dana Perino may choose to babble about Governor Palin’s authenticity, the truth speaks louder. No one would put herself on the line as she did without firmly believing in each stand she took. Governor Palin went through hell because she called attention to “death panels,” and only now are people recognizing that she had the foresight to see what most others chose to deny. She was labeled a racist because she stood with Arizona in their effort to secure their own borders and became the most prominent face of the Tea Party movement. She was accused of being intolerant because she questioned the appropriateness of building a mosque in the vicinity of Ground Zero. Her judgment was placed on the chopping block because she dared endorse some people with whom the Establishment took issue. Nonetheless, she did not hide behind what was safe, but she went running toward what was right. While supposed heir-to-the-Republican-nomination-throne, Mitt Romney, often hid until the eleventh hour–and sometimes much later–to endorse a candidate, the Governor spoke out, came out, campaigned, raised money, and stood by her decisions.

Whether certain individuals like the Governor’s decisions or not, her fearlessness in making them and standing by them is unquestionable. She stands head and shoulders above the rest because she stands on principle. This is the kind of leader Americans are seeking. This is the kind of leader who inspires the support that she receives from ordinary barbarians. This is also the kind of leader who scares both the Left and the Right to death.

In 2010, Governor Palin surely demonstrated what it means to be busy, but she did so much more than that. She focused on issues that matter most to Americans, and she didn’t let the pressure closing in on all sides divert her from doing what she knew to be best for her nation, or her family, or even her state. May we be just as fearless in our stand for truth, freedom, and justice. Governor Palin is a living example of what authenticity is really about, what it costs, and the rewards it brings. No matter who likes it or who doesn’t, with her, what you see is what you get. And we see a Mama Grizzly intent on standing on the right side of all the right issues and will not back down.

As we head into 2011, I want to carry this lesson of fearlessness and authenticity with me; it reminds me of the advice Shakespeare shared in Hamlet when he wrote:

This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell: my blessing season this in thee!

Happy New Year!

Zogby Survey: Governor Palin is 2010 Person of the Year

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 15, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin is Person of the Year for 2010 according to a Zogby International survey. Zogby.com reports:

Former Vice-Presidential candidate and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin is the Person of the Year for 2010 according to a recent Zogby International survey. The poll, also names former President George W. Bush as the Person of the Decade (2000-2010).

Palin garners a 21% response with President Barack Obama claiming 16% for person of the year, and Glenn Beck tied with Julian Assange with 13%. None of the other seven people listed (General David Petraeus, Mark Zukerberg, Hillary Clinton, Conan O’Brien, Steve Jobs, LeBron James, Robert Gates) in the survey pull in more than 6%.

Democrats mostly choose President Obama (33%) and Assange (19%), while Republicans go for Palin (39%) and Beck (25%), and independents split their votes between Palin (17%), Beck (16%) and Assange (15%). President Obama only pulled 8% of the Independent vote.

Former President George W. Bush pulls in 44% of the respondents for Person of the Decade. President Obama comes in second with 20% and Osama Bin Laden garners 11%. None of the remaining six people listed (Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, Saddam Hussein, Vladimir Putin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-Il) in the survey receive more than 5%.

2012 Draft Sarah Committee – $20 or $10 for 2010 Challenge

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 3, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin’s supporters who are on the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee email list have already received the letter below, which was sent out on New Year’s Eve. Those who aren’t, first, what in the world are you waiting for, and second, what in the world are you waiting for?! No, seriously.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee is the only FEC-registered draft committee, which means it’s official, it’s held to federal guidelines, and it’s leading the charge to encourage Governor Palin to run in 2012.

In addition to our 2012 efforts, the Committee is dedicated to supporting the Governor in general. We’ve demonstrated that support with our physical presence at events from New York to Alaska–and many states in between. We continue to demonstrate that support with the work that goes on in our local areas across the country.

All Organizers are volunteers who believe in the cause, and we’re counting on those of you who also believe to get involved. So be sure to sign up at our website by clicking here, and while you’re there, take a look around.

The letter below is our $20 or $10 for 2010 Challenge. Check it out, and please answer the call.

Let’s hit the ground running!

Dear 2012 Draft Sarah Committee Supporter,

We are on the verge of entering 2010, so let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year!

2009 has been a challenging year for the nation, but one where Governor Palin has taken a stand on a variety of issues that are so crucial to America’s progress. It’s also the year of her best-selling memoir, Going Rogue. I am confident 2010 will be even more exciting.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee started 2009 by attending CPAC in February, which brings me to the point of this correspondence. CPAC, held in our nation’s capital, is the leading conservative gathering in the country. It was at CPAC where we were able to tell people more about the Committee, get feedback from Americans regarding Governor Palin, and acquire valuable contact information as we gained a myriad of online newsletter subscribers and volunteers. February is fast-approaching, and once again the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee wants to have a presence at CPAC.

We need your help.

In honor of 2010, I am asking you to start off the year with a $20 or $10 donation—or more—to the Committee. Contributions will go first towards booth rental and then towards material such as bumper stickers, flyers, shirts, and buttons for CPAC. Many of you are faithful to donate to SarahPAC; would you consider going above and beyond that contribution to make one to the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee as well, and would you consider making that contribution by the 10th of January?

We are doing important work, and even Governor Palin saw fit to thank us in Going Rogue. While we do operate independently of her, we are honored that she has taken note of our efforts. We want to carry on in this new year.

Please visit the website, www.2012draftsarahcommittee.com, to make your donation.

Thank you for considering a gift of $20 or $10, and Happy 2010 once again!

Respectfully,

Randy Highsmith
Chairman

Hurry to join in this challenge by the 10th of this month! Thank you.

Cash is King. The King Supports Conservative Candidates

Posted by Ron Devito on December 31, 2009

NOTE: The following is a grassroots effort to generate donations for SarahPAC. Content has not been reviewed or authorized by SarahPAC.

In her last donation appeal, Governor Palin wrote:

I am going to help campaign across our great nation and I’d like your help to do it. If you are able to contribute I will use the SarahPAC donations you place in my trust to support candidates who share our core values, and I’ll work on issues that can put America back on the right path. With your help, we can bring real change to America!

2010 is a critical year for this effort. 2010 starts in less than 17 hours (EST). Moving forward, the best way to help Governor Palin shape the 2010 elections is to contribute to SarahPAC as generously as you can, as often as you can.

Let’s help SarahPAC close the year with a bang, and get locked and loaded for 2010. Thank you for your support and generosity.
