Mark Vogl: Sarah has my vote

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 7, 2012

In this interesting article at America Today, Mark Vogl expresses some of the frustrations Palinistas are feeling right now.

I am not convinced on Romney even today. Rubio, Christi, etc are NOT proven leaders or conservatives, Sarah is…and Christian!

Romney and his boys think the race is over. But for me, a conservative, I have no reason to vote for Romney except Obama. But Romney is gonna move left, and I won’t follow him. Sure wish there was a third candidate, or a write in effort for Sarah!

Things are so wrong in America. It’s not just Obama Care or trillions in deficit. It is we are going in the wrong direction, and we think of America wrongly. We ARE NOT the leader of the free worldanymore. America First should be the center piece of the GOP platform. We need to set goals of self-sustainment in energy, food, manufacturing, controlling our borders, limiting the UN to a global discussing group.

There is alot that needs to be done, and Romney is just not well rounded enough. not conservative enough, not American enough. Sarah Palin is. She is all we need. She should be our nominee, she should be our President! But if not, then chose her to serve one heart beat away!

[…]

Obama’s abandonment of the Democrat in Wisconsin will help split the Democrats. So the neo conservatives probably figure that helps Romney. But what if there was a third party candidate. What if Sarah ran? I know where I would be. Wonder what polls would say about how many Americans are disastisfied with the current choices. Paul’s fanatics, where will they go if Paul goes back to Texas and sits on his porch?

Some GOP strategists are floating Rubio to try to go after the Latin votes, they are over reaching. They dont have the conservatives! Romney has not won my vote. Sarah has my vote.

There’s alot going on, alot to think about. But for me, I did not vote for George Bush whenPat Buchanan was an alternative. I did not vote for John McCain,even though I wanted tovote for Sarah, did a write in vote. If you think conservatives have to vote for Romney, you don’t understand who conservatives are. Sarah does.

It’s a long way to November. Alot can happen. If you feel you can take conservatives for granted today, well okay, but like I said, November is a long way off.

What if…?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 30, 2012

Acknowledgingthecrowd_searchlightIn all honesty, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of just how different this GOP primary season would have been with Sarah Palin in the mix.  Timothy Stanley, an Oxford University historian, correctly (in my opinion) lays out what this presidential campaign season might have looked like had Governor Sarah Palin declared her candidacy.

 

From CNN:

(CNN) — The Republican presidential primary hasn’t exactly overflowed with talent. In December, it was a roll call of the undesirable Right: Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Huntsman and Bachmann — a list so long and bizarre that Count Dracula could have slipped in on the end and no one would have noticed. Except, as the citizens of Chicago will tell you, the dead always vote Democrat.

Now, we’re down to a final three, discounting Ron Paul, who, I’m guessing, is only staying in the race to collect air miles. Although the talent pool has shrunk, it has gotten no deeper. As Mitt Romney suffers defeat after defeat at the hands of Rick Santorum, whose chances of winning this thing aren’t high, his negatives mount up, and the president looks stronger by the day. The Republican Party is divided and in danger of becoming out of touch.

It didn’t have to be this way. If Sarah Palin had entered the contest, I’d hypothesize two alternative realities. One, she’d have the nomination sewn up by now. Two, she’d be running even in the polls with the president.

What have proved to be problems for the top three candidates wouldn’t have been problems for Palin. For starters, she has none of Newt Gingrich’s intellectual hubris. There’s no way Palin would have promised to put a mine on the moon or suggest arresting judges who make decisions that are too liberal. Her conservatism is far more domestic and down-to-Earth.  More

Inspired to Move Forward

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 20, 2011

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

Seeing Governor Palin on Greta Tuesday night was bittersweet. It’s always enlightening to hear her weigh in on what’s going on. That’s the sweet part. Not only does she possess a keen awareness of the world’s happenings, but she’s the only person I can think of who expresses her views with naked honesty and boldness. That is, without a doubt, a quality that is most refreshing these days–and very much needed.

When I consider that quality, I can understand why the Governor would choose to keep her freedom to be that honest and bold by remaining outside the established political battle. No shackles, no PC police, no anything that would get in the way of her doing what she is wont to do: calling it like she sees it. I almost feel the liberation right along with her.

Having said that, what I feel just as much–if not more–is an incredible sense of loss at this liberation. I cannot help but think about what could have been. That, of course, is the bitter aspect of this whole thing. This sense of loss intensified as I watched the Nevada GOP Debate. I’ve heard many people speak ill of presidential debates, some calling them a complete waste of time. I don’t share that sentiment, but I’m admittedly a bit of a junkie when it comes to these things. I actually look forward to the debates. Prior to October 5th, I watched them with anticipation of the day Governor Palin would also stand behind one of those podiums or sit around a table and shine as she provided real solutions to real problems facing Americans. I longed for her unique ability to rise above the incredibly childish, shoulder-touching, eye-rolling, and neck-popping bickering we saw Tuesday night, behavior Romney and Perry displayed for all the country to see. Yep, just what we look for in potential leaders of the free world. They attempted to convince us they can preside over weighty domestic and foreign affairs, but they couldn’t even manage a debate without speaking over each other, pointing fingers, and insulting one another. I would have loved to see Governor Palin put these two in Time Out with a gentle chastisement, much like she issued during her 2006 Alaska gubernatorial debate when she told the bickering boys, “We owe Alaskans a better discourse than this.” Substitute “Alaskans” for “Americans” and the chastisement would have still applied Tuesday.

CNN’s Ashley Killough took note of Governor Palin’s comment about the debate

“We don’t want to hear the engagement of the nitpicking and the bickering because that just plays right on into the left handbook as they get ready for the general election debates,” Palin said.

Yes, I had wanted to see the Governor allow her record and knowledge to win the day. In fact, less than two weeks prior to her announcement, I wrote:

I look forward to what she’ll add to these debates. Not only is she solid on the issues, but she can articulate her stand on these issues based on intelligence, experience, and common sense.

[…]

I look forward to someone who will cut through the bull, call a spade a spade, challenge candidates on their records, spotlight her own, and revitalize the American people.

Well, it doesn’t appear to be as I had hoped, at least not as of today, but it’s far from over. The beat goes on, as they say. I had this same sense the night of November 4, 2008, as I stood in my living room staring at the television. As tears streamed down my face at the realization that the McCain-Palin team was not going to pull it off, I opened my mouth and said, “It’s not over for Sarah Palin.” I had not thought about the words before I uttered them; they just came out. After hearing them, I knew deep down that what I had said was the truth, though I had not spent time considering the possibilities that existed, and I had heard no talk of a possible 2012 presidential run until the following day. Yet somewhere within, I knew the plan was larger, greater, and incomplete.

Time proved those words correct, of course. What she has accomplished since her VP run has shown that, while a title is indeed needed to usher in certain types of change, it absolutely is not needed to make a difference. We know this to be true because we know she has made a difference. 2010 remains a testimony of what a difference she has made, and that’s just a portion of her impact as a private citizen. Her refusal to sit down and shut up has caused her detractors to fear her while inspiring her supporters to fight alongside her. Nonetheless, the title of President of the United States would be ideal, and many are still holding on to hope.

I know there are movements to encourage Governor Palin to reconsider, there are those who want to be the 10.3 earthquake she said it would take to get her to change her mind, and speculations exist that she might take a very unconventional path. I’ve theorized as much myself. Nonetheless, if we know anything about Governor Palin, we know she seeks God for direction, moves only as she feels led, and always considers the impact on her family. I have no doubt that if she felt those three things directed her to jump in, she would, and I also have no doubt that if they never do, she never will. That, of course, is not news to those who know how she’s wired. Time will tell how all this unfolds.

So what now? One thing that God put on my heart in 2008 after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate was how her story was a simple one. By simple I mean she and her family were just regular, everyday, Walmart shopping, hardworking Americans. She was busy raising her family, serving her state, and loving her God. As she just did what she did–not beating down doors to force something to happen–the door of opportunity presented itself and stood before her. It was a classic example of what the Governor calls preparation meeting opportunity. It reminds me of the biblical account of Ruth meeting Boaz. Ruth’s first encounter with him was not the result of her looking for a husband. She was there only to glean in the field. As she simply did what she had to do, as she took care of her business, her destiny presented itself before her; Boaz took note of her. She then took it from there.

Governor Palin, too, was faithful in what we call the little things, though her roles as wife, mom, and governor were anything but little, and she had accomplished great things throughout the entirety of her career in public service. As she committed herself to being faithful in what was before her, a new opportunity stood before her the summer of 2008–one that would change not only her life, but the lives of those who have been inspired by her.

This brings me to my point. What was impressed upon my heart three years ago was that what God did for her is what He wants to do for us. We all have a destiny, a place prepared for us just waiting for us to arrive–not out of a lust for power but out of a determination to make a difference and fulfill our own purpose. Governor Palin’s purpose has still not been fully accomplished; it’s still being lived out daily and is still unfolding. We must be sure not to stargaze, as they say, but to move forward in that same spirit. God has used her to influence and motivate a multitude. How many people would have never become engaged in what’s going on in this country had she not stepped on the scene? How many would have never entered the fight for the future of America, whether through local organization involvement, writing, speaking, or advocating, if we didn’t see ourselves in her and realize that we, too, have a part to play?

Like so many others, I want to hear that Governor Palin has decided to jump in this thing, seek that title she believes she doesn’t need, and lead this country forward. We may feel like we don’t know for sure which path she’ll take, but we do know what she’s said. Even after working so hard for three years in hopes of a Palin 2012 presidential run, I still take heart whether she ever gets in or stays out. The thought of her staying out is indeed most bitter–still. Even so, it’s not over for her. I know that with the same certainty that I knew it in November of 2008. But this time, I know something else. It’s not over for we, her supporters, either.

There’s something each of us can do to carry on what she has inspired within us. Some of us, for the first time, found sound upon opening our mouths when we discovered the Governor of Alaska and recognized that there was something worth speaking up for. We were meant to be more than an echo, however. We were meant to be a voice.

Whether Governor Palin makes her headquarters in Washington, D.C. or remains in Wasilla, AK as she fights for common sense conservatism, she will continue what she has begun. We must continue what we have begun, too. Each of us can make our mark on this country. The Governor may very well don the title of President of the United States some day, and there may be a title or two some of us will don, as well. On the other hand, moving forward, she and we may never be crowned with a title at all. We’ll know more soon enough, but for now let us be inspired as we continue to do what we can to advance the cause of liberty, support Governor Palin’s ongoing efforts to restore America, and fulfill our own destinies.

Weighing in on Governor Palin’s Decision Not to Run for President

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 5, 2011

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

Governor Palin announced on Mark Levin’s radio show today that she is not running for President in 2012. I might say more tomorrow, but tonight I am going to keep this short and simply say that I respect her decision. I wanted her to run, expected her to run, and believe she would have won had she run.

Having said that, she never promised us any such thing. She always said she didn’t need a title to effect change. She has maintained throughout that she was still praying about it. And she has said countless times that this was not about her. We the people wanted her to run and we the people encouraged her to do so. Am I happy with her decision? No. But again, I respect it.

The Governor Palin I have supported these past three years, the one I’ve been privileged to come to know, is indeed the real deal, and so for tonight I will leave it at this: I continue to stand with Governor Palin. As I ended a recent post:

I don’t know which road Governor Palin will take in all this, but I am certain of this one thing: wherever the road leads her, she’ll find me still walking beside her when she arrives.

I meant it then, and I mean it now.

Click here to listen to the interview with Mark Levin.

Here’s the letter from the Governor that Mark read on his program today:

October 5, 2011
Wasilla, Alaska

After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the “fundamental transformation” of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the private sector to create jobs.

Those will be our priorities so Americans can be confident that a smaller, smarter government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional nation.

In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s unite to restore this country!

God bless America.

Firm Associated with SarahPAC Inquires about Filing Deadline

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 5, 2011

The internet was abuzz yesterday with a story published by Politico that a law firm associated with SarahPACwas making inquiries about filing deadlines with states that have early primaries.

Palin has said on numerous occasions that she is still considering a run for the presidency and this was again confirmed during her September 27th interview with Greta Van Susteren.. Governor Palin tells her supporters to “keep your powder dry”.  In other words, be alert and be prepared at all times. Are you ready?

From Politico.com:

Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines.

The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler – a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee.

As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palin’s campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.  More

Fired Up

Posted by Morgan on April 17, 2011

First off, I’d like to say thanks to all of you who have welcomed me as a contributor.  Admittedly, except for one e-mail, I haven’t received any greetings (and I don’t know why the bounceback from my e-mail address occurred).  I consider it an honor to be able to contribute anything here at a blog where so many of Sarah’s strongest and most vocal supporters contribute.  I decided for my first post here, instead of cross-posting what I just published at Hoosiers For Sarah Palin, I would elaborate on what I wrote today about Sarah’s speech at the Tea Party rally in Madison, Wisconsin yesterday afternoon.

To start with, I had actually forgotten that Sarah was to speak in Madison when I went onto the CBS News website to watch the livestream of the rally.  I remember hearing a memorable phrase by one of the speakers when addressing a reference to the the famous sleeping giant quote (if I get this wrong, my apologies): “We’re weren’t asleep, just at work.”  Andrew Breitbart spoke next and I loved his “Go to hell!” to Richard Trumka.

I noticed the chat stream on the website was going as fast as bullets, but the intensity of these “bullets” grew the very moment Sarah came to the podium.  There were comments appearing and disappearing, either supporting Sarah or attacking her, one going so far as derogatorily mocking her by chanting the word uterus.  Thankfully, supporters of Sarah drowned him out (so to speak) with chants of Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!.

As I wrote in my blog post, Sarah went after the union fat cats, the Republican Party establishment, and especially Barack Obama.  She praised Governor Scott Walker, as well as the state Republican legislators and the Tea Partiers who stood for the needed fiscal reforms (if only my own Governor, Mitch Daniels, had a spine like Governor Walker’s!).  The fire which came out of Sarah not only fired up all of us, but it also ensured the union protestors who tried to boo her and drown her out with their own chants were themselves drowned out by her words and the cheers of the Tea Partiers there.  I can’t say I saw any snow in the video footage, and I’m not surprised; Sarah’s fiery speech must’ve melted the snow!

There’s not much I can say about how I felt after her speech.  Not only was I fired up, I was also reaffirmed in my belief that Sarah is the best person out there today for the job of leading America back onto the right direction, and it was more motivating than anything I have heard from any of the other potential candidates seeking the Republican nomination for 2012 (hearing the sound byte from Tim Pawlenty, for instance, where he borrowed the phrase “You’re fired” from Donald Trump, would’ve been good if he hadn’t sounded so boring!).  With her editorials, Facebook posts, Tweets, and speeches like yesterday’s, Sarah showed why the Left, the media and Barack Obama are afraid of her.

As Jedediah Bila said so well and so simply, Sarah rocked Madison.  I thank God for this woman.  May she, and all of us Palinistas, continue fighting the good fight.

Governor Palin and the Politics of Competition

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 28, 2011

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

A key to Governor Palin’s success is her diverse experience. As a champion athlete, women’s pioneer, and a national leader, she knows the value of hard work, perseverance, and yes, a competitive spirit.

Anyone close to me can tell you how competitive I am. I love to compete, and I hate to lose. This doesn’t mean I act like a brat if, on the rare occasion, I do happen to lose! It means I do everything in my power never to lose at all. Whether it’s sports, a board game, or an argument, I expect to win. One of my favorite sayings, which in past years I’ve made my students repeat everyday, is “Failure is not an option.” Combine that with another favorite saying, “The best is yet to come,” and one has a recipe for achievement.

Part of winning is mindset. Another part is action. When I coached high school girls’ basketball, I taught my team that anytime they stepped onto the court, they must be convinced they would win, and that the only way they could fully have that conviction is if two things were true: 1) they’d personally done everything to prepare to win, and 2) they knew that each of their teammates had done everything to prepare to win. If either of these two things were lacking, they simply would not have that confidence. It takes more than one person’s work, I wanted them to see, to lead to confidence and victory. I must be just as confident in the person to whom I’m passing the ball–that she’ll finish the play–as I am in my ability to deliver the pass on target, which necessitates my knowing that the player prepared well. If I doubt that, I might not pass the ball–and that might be the difference between winning and losing.

Never underestimate the power of conditioning in a winning strategy, either. My team ran stairs, sprinted, did defensive slides, and in my last two years as coach–the championship years–practiced six days a week. While players from other schools were asleep at 8:00 Saturday mornings, my players were dragging their hopes and dreams into the gym for another day of drills, suicides, and plays. Believe me, they wanted to sleep, but they wanted to win more. This meant less time hanging out with friends on Friday nights because Saturday morning was coming. It was a sacrifice, but it was worth it to those who hated to lose, who had something worth winning.

We’re in the midst of March Madness, and even as a spectator, there’s something I cannot stand to see: weak, namby pamby teams who lay down and roll over without so much as a fight. Yesterday, I was excited watching women’s basketball because I thought Georgetown was going to put out UCONN’s fire–and as a Tennessee Lady Vols fan, I always cheer on anyone rival UCONN is playing. No one would have given Georgetown a chance against the defending champs, but they fought hard and almost pulled off the upset of the tournament. But as much as I hate to admit it, UCONN is a great team, and great teams always fight back. They never just bow down to the beating. They never go running and hiding because someone is throwing some heavy punches. They compete, and most often they win.

The far left and the Republican establishment could learn a thing or two about Governor Palin simply by paying attention to these lessons we find in sports. They always seem to be shaking their heads, groping in the dark, and suffering utter frustration at their inability to stop or slow down her momentum. The truth is nothing can stop the Governor but the Governor. She possesses all the qualities of a winner.

First, she’s a competitor. She’s stated that if she decides to run for the presidency, she’s in with one outcome in mind:

You run the race to win the race. That’s for sure.

Some had the nerve to be offended when she told Barbara Walters that she believed she could beat President Obama if she ran in 2012. What did they expect her to say? Of course, she believes she can win. Who better to take him on? Who else has opposed his destructive policies at every turn? As I wrote last night:

I agree that staying on the periphery to support a better candidate–when there is one–is admirable. However, of all the names being tossed around as possible 2012 contenders, she is the better candidate. She’s the one with the record, the patriotism, the principles, the servant’s heart, and the sheer guts to get the job done. So in the words of the army of voices praying for a promising future for themselves, their children, and their nation: “Run, Sarah, Run.”

Surely, no true competitor puts in the time and energy simply to say she’s done something unique. A true competitor, especially one who knows that the future may be riding on the outcome of the race, never runs half-heartedly. As we recall, part of Governor Palin’s reputation as a “rogue” came from her outcry when the McCain camp threw in the Michigan towel, insisting it was out of reach. Governor Palin’s response?

I want to get back to Michigan, and I want to try.

The Republican establishment, in all its obvious fear of Governor Palin, would like to get in the way of the will of the people, to extinguish the fight before it blazes, pick the winners and losers. But we don’t roll that way. No, bring on the competition. As she has said repeatedly, there’s nothing better than contested primaries. She’s up to the challenge, and so are we.

Those who have waged war on all things Palin are providing her with the conditioning that they may soon regret. There’s nothing she hasn’t been through. Much weaker vessels would have packed it in, but not she. What else can be said? What else can be done? What other accusation can they hurl? It’s all been tried. Their fight against her is like trying on the basketball court to defend against an offense that doesn’t seem the least bit frazzled by anything you do. Her opponents already came with the full-court press–and failed. The pressure she’s endured has only made her stronger. Of all the potential 2012 candidates, she is the best conditioned because she’s been through the most. Many a game is lost in the fourth quarter because a team just isn’t prepared to last till the horn, and they run out of steam at the most crucial time. They can’t endure. Does anyone doubt Governor Palin’s stamina? Her self-professed enemies are frustrated because they can’t get her to sit down and shut up, because she doesn’t run to the sidelines and beg to be taken out. She continues to fight, and they have helped her build those necessary muscles, much to their own chagrin.

It’s amazing, isn’t it, though, that those who seek to stop her in her tracks can dish it, but they cannot take it? They never expect her to do what UCONN did yesterday: fight back. They want her to be that weak opponent who will sit idly by and lose with grace. But there ain’t no grace in surrender! And competitors surely don’t just duck the dirt that’s being slung. They don’t allow their good name to be besmirched, their families attacked, and their record sullied–and say nothing. Yes, they pick their spots, but you better believe they’ve got the fight in them to take a stand and defend against the bullies on the playground–and they win with grace.

Success has been a reality for Governor Palin throughout her 20 years in public service. She knows how to get the job done, and it’s no wonder she always steps up with an expectation of victory. After all, she possesses the two requirements that I taught my team. She has prepared herself, and she has a team around her who have prepared themselves. The Governor’s experience offering herself in service to her children’s public school, energizing business in her city, fighting corruption in her state, negotiating energy in the field of big oil, personifying common sense conservatism in her country, and conversing with dignitaries in foreign nations are preparation for success at whatever next step she decides to take. Her teammates are the family members loving her, her staff assisting her, and her supporters backing her. Each has prepared for whatever battle is ahead, thereby allowing the Governor to proceed with confidence.

True competitors frustrate their opponents because their will cannot be conquered. Even in weariness and in the heat of battle, they find the strength to continue because for them the thought of losing is greater than the pain of persevering–and what they’re fighting for, to put it simply, is worth the effort.

Governor Palin is the strongest example of unapologetic patriotism and leadership we have seen in some time, many say since the days of President Reagan. She is driven by a faith in God, a love of country, and a commitment to service. Combine that with her competitor’s spirit, and we’ve got ourselves a winner.

Presidential Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 28, 2011

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

Michael Hauschild of American Thinker pens a piece in which he further discusses what we already know about Governor Palin: her commitment is to America’s greatness, not her own. This, above all, speaks to her “presidential” credentials.

He writes:

Sarah Palin represents what a president should be in these very troubled times; she’s made choices in the last several years which many misinterpret in the framework of their own shortcoming. The slings and arrows launched at Palin vibrate with bias, chauvinism, elitism, and partisan politics and a sense of superior intellect from the howling scornful classes

[…]

I offer one man’s simple observation — a view from a citizen born and raised in the heartland of the rugged Great Plains: Sarah Palin has done more for the sanctity of life, for the preservation of American values, for the American traditions of integrity and honesty in political discourse than all the wannabe pundits across the country beating their chests and voicing “expert” proclamations of disdain since the name Sarah Palin became a household word.

We know Sarah Palin well enough now to know that she would take the burden of president if she felt it would be best for her country. She would step aside and put her credentials and principles behind another leader if she felt it would be best for her country. She has, is, and will continue to do what is best for our country with no focus on personal gain other than the security of America.

From the perch of a humble patriot citizen in the heartland of America, I believe that Sarah Palin wants what I want — our American life as our forefathers intended: a Constitutional Republic, with checks and balances in place. If she can deliver this, she’ll likely seek office; if she can contribute or support a candidate, she’ll do that, too. If she can serve best on the periphery, that’ll be the role she takes. She’ll seek to save the country with her actions, not risk its destruction because of a lust for power.

Read the full article here.

Hauschild offers a fair assessment of Governor Palin in this article. I would simply add that it is my hope, and the hope of many, that the Governor will indeed seek office herself. I agree that staying on the periphery to support a better candidate–when there is one–is admirable. However, of all the names being tossed around as possible 2012 contenders, she is the better candidate. She’s the one with the record, the patriotism, the principles, the servant’s heart, and the sheer guts to get the job done. So in the words of the army of voices praying for a promising future for themselves, their children, and their nation: “Run, Sarah, Run.”

Whitney Pitcher: 47 Reasons Governor Palin Is Qualified to Be President

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 11, 2011

In honor of Governor Palin’s 47th birthday, C4P’s Whitney Pitcher put together a post that names 47 reasons, in no certain order, Governor Palin is qualified for the presidency.

She writes:

1) She won’t perjure herself by taking the Presidential oath of office like many of her potential opponents.

2) She has 9 years of executive experience, more than 3 times as much as the current President. As Governor, she held the 2nd most powerful gubernatorial office in the country.

3)She knows how to budget. In her years as Governor, she reduced the state budget 9.5% over her predecessor and put $5 billion in state savings.

4) She reduced federal earmark requests 80% as Governor over her predecessor, recognizing the need for fiscal responsibility at both state and national levels.

5) She’s a proven reformer. She strove to break the bonds between Alaskan politicians and oil companies and passed sweeping ethics reform.

6) She believes in true governmental transparency. As Governor, she put the state checkbook online to allow constituents to know how and where the state was spending revenue. During the negotiations of one of the cornerstones of her administration, the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA), all proposals were made available for public consumption.

7) In signing the AGIA legislation and the progress that continues to this day, she brought a transcontinental pipeline project from Alaska to the Lower 48 further than 30 years of previous administrations. AGIA is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history.

8 ) She believes in oversight not over regulation for energy development. She opened an Petroleum Integrity Office to oversee energy development in Alaska.

9) She believes in an all-of-the-above approach to energy development, including opening up ANWR, on shore drilling, off shore drilling, natural gas, coal, nuclear, and renewables.

10) She understands the effects of quantitative easing will have on the economy in general and on commodity prices specifically.

11) She would have the intestinal fortitude to actually take on reformation of entitlement programs to help derail the bullet train to bankruptcy.

12) For the role of the presidency, the Constitution devotes the majority of its text to the role of commander-in-chief. Governor Palin would take this role seriously as displayed by her commitment to America’s military and her desire for a strong national defense.

13) As part of her commitment to strong national defense, she criticized the Obama administration for making cuts to missile defense, and she stands strongly against the START treaty between Russia and America.

14) She has been firmly against Obamacare from the beginning of legislative talks and strongly supports repeal.

15) She truly sees America as an exceptional nation because of its people. She praises what makes America unique; she doesn’t apologize.

16) She puts principles above party and political expediency.

17) She has stood strongly for securing America’s borders, as shown by her support of Arizona’s immigration law.

18) She is strongly pro-life–a welcomed far cry from the most pro-abortion president in history now occupying the White House.

19) She supports human rights, particularly speaking out against the human rights abuses in China, Iran, and amongst peoples who embrace Sharia law.

20) With regard to foreign policy, she has a far better grasp situation in Egypt with regard to the potential of the Muslim brotherhood’s involvement in a new government and Mubarak’s plans better than members of President Obama’s intelligence team, Leon Panetta and James Clapper.

The Palin Network: Inside Sarah Palin’s Inner Circle

Posted by Denise Spencer on November 17, 2010

Today I ran across a decent article about Sarah Palin in the NY Times Magazine no less! You can read the entire article here.

The article consists of interviews with Sarah Palin and her few trusted aides and advisors. For once I can say that I am pleasantly surprised with the way the article was written. Yes, there are places where some bias comes through but overall Robert Draper was fair.

The article starts off with Sarah on the night of Nov. 3 as she waits for the election results to roll in.

On the night of the midterm elections earlier this month, Sarah Palin stayed up until 3 in the morning. From her hotel bedroom in Manhattan, she and her husband, Todd, followed the returns while she wrote e-mails on her iPad — congratulating winners, consoling losers — while reading others from people who wanted her to know that they had cast their vote for her daughter Bristol on “Dancing With the Stars” the evening before. Like much of her recent life, Palin’s day had been replete with reminders of the clout she had rapidly acquired. She had spent most of her time ensconced at the Fox television studios, though she managed to squeeze in a jog in Central Park — which she promptly chronicled on Twitter: “Beautiful!”

Mr. Draper fairly details the weight of a Sarah Palin endorsement and the effects that she had on the mid-term election. When asked about her future and if it includes a run for the Oval Office, this is what Sarah had to say:

“I am,” Sarah Palin told me the next day when I asked her if she was already weighing a run for president. “I’m engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here.” Palin went on to say that there weren’t meaningful differences in policy among the field of G.O.P. hopefuls “but that in fact there’s more to the presidency than that” and that her decision would involve evaluating whether she could bring unique qualities to the table.

In true Sarah style, she is keeping it all in perspective – family, faith, and flag. If it is right for her family and she feels that it is best for our country, she is willing to take that leap of faith and run. She definitely has support in no matter what she decides. Have you seen her Facebook page recently? She now has over 2.4 million fans, check it out.

The article also addresses the true character of Sarah during her Going Rogue book tour:

A few months later, while touring to promote her book, “Going Rogue,” Palin’s bus pulled into Roanoke, Va., one Sunday in November, the night before an appearance at a bookstore. The author was astonished to see more than 500 people encamped outside the store, many of them in sleeping bags. “Oh, my God, it’s so cold!” Palin exclaimed as she bounded out of the bus to greet her ecstatic fans. “I can’t believe you’re waiting for me!”

But they had waited, and now she had arrived.

I was in Roanoke for the book signing referenced by Mr. Draper. You can read about my experience here. Surprise! (picture courtesy of Amy Sorrell) Here is Sarah and trig when she stopped to thank all of us who braved the cold to camp out to see her.

While Mr. Draper steers clear of stating if Sarah Palin is qualified or not to be president he does write:

Palin has taken steps to close the substance gap. As Davis put it to me, “She works very hard to get things right, because she understands the margin for error — and because it’s the right thing to do.” In Hong Kong 14 months ago, Palin delivered a dense world-affairs speech that she co-drafted with Randy Scheunemann and Rebecca Mansour. This past June in Norfolk, Va., Palin ripped Obama’s “enemy-centric” foreign policy in a spicy but detailed address. (In that speech and elsewhere, she has cited the wisdom of Joe Lieberman — though not on the matter of human-induced climate change, a concept she derides as a “snow job” and this “global warming Goregate stuff.” Lieberman told me, “Well of course I disagree with her and have been disappointed by it.” Lieberman also said: “My impression is that she and Todd are the kind of people I’d like to have as my next-door neighbors. ..”

You can read about Sarah Palin’s Norfolk Virginia speech here.

After reading this article, I believe you will take away a new understanding of Sarah Palin and the world she lives in. Even though questions still remain about whether she will run for president, there is no question that she has the grassroots support to pull it all off. Would I work for her campaign??? You betcha!
