Breath of fresh air, restores my hope for America after all the negative news everywhere. For whatever it's worth remember that Golda Meir (Israel), Indira Gandhi (India), Margaret Thatcher (UK) governed their countries with iron fist and made great progress during their time. Sarah Palin must choose her time and take that leap, hope I get to be a part of such history making.
People! This is a binary choice! You either get the republican (whoever it is with whatever bad points) or you get 4 more years of the worst president in history!
I am not at all sure that we would survive it. Are you willing to take that chance by making that binary choice?
I thought I would share a comment I wrote elsewhere, I thought it was pretty good and about 300 others thought so too.
Sarah Palin, what is there to say? The media poured through 24,000 government emails to find she was pure as a snow flake and as honorable and forthright as a Buddhist monk. The MSM, the Democrats and Establishment Republicans attacked her and she came out stronger for the forging. When a piece of iron is heated and annealed with the fires of condemnation, to only come out the other side like a samurai sword, you have to embrace truth of the conviction, she is just a soldier in the fight for freedom. What exactly is it that the leftists hate? Her refusal to kill her child? Her conviction of non corruption? Her beautiful but flawed family (which family was ever perfect, which person but Jesus was ever perfect)? Her choice to put her Republic before her self in resignation? Her ability to encourage hope? Her ability to take advantage of the free market system?
WHAT exactly does the leftists hate? All of the above, because she did not NEED them to succeed, she did it all on her own, while raising a family!
That's right, altho' Marco Rubio was real good, too. No good deed goes unpunished, so that all you need to do to disqualify yourself from major office is to tell the exact, precise truth.
SAM ADAMS IS MORE THAN JUST A GREAT YANKEE BEER!
TAX HATER SAMUEL ADAMS, ON A ROLL AND ARMED TO THE TEETH, AUGUST, 1776……
"You darkeners of counsel, who would make the property, lives and religion of millions depend on the evasive interpretations of musty parchments; who would send us to antiquated charters of uncertain and contradictory meaning, to prove that the present generation are not bound to be victims to cruel and unforgiving despotism, tell us whether our pious and generous ancestors bequeathed to us the miserable privilege of having the rewards of our honesty, industry, the fruits of those fields which they purchased and bled for, wrested from us at the will of men over whom we have no check.
"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, and supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom – go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
“Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty. Dismissing, therefore, the justice of our cause, as incontestable, the only question is, What is best for us to pursue in our present circumstances?”
“It does not take a majority to prevail….but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
“Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”
“The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
SPARKS FROM WYATT’S TORCH
Conservatives and libertarians should stop calling Democrats "liberals" ---- because they are helping the Democrats with this label --- not hurting them.
While many Democrats and other leftists agitate in favor of socialism or communism [distinctions without a difference], the majority of them prefer the Nazi / fascist economic model --- which works out in practical terms to the "crony capitalist progressivism" now practiced by Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, the OhBummer Wrecking Crew, the Democrat party at-large, and the “establishment” / "RINO" [Republican-In-Name-Only] Republicans.
Keep in mind here that Hitler and Mussolini launched their political careers as Marxist communists and later they adopted political disguise for their agenda of moral cannibalism and “eating the rich.” Does this sound familiar, given who now controls the White House and the Senate?
Note that progressivism, socialism, Nazism [“national socialism”], fascism and communism are all joined-at-the-hip in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights. More on this, later.
The Democrat [and other leftist] technique for character assassination is what it has always been --- a barrage of outright lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, innuendos, misinformation, disinformation, and poisonous propaganda --- all of that directed at anyone who obstructs their access to our wallets and our other property --- and especially any public figure who rises to fight them with any prospect of beating them and liberating the American people from the Democrats' kleptocracy.
In the past thirty years or so, from Ronald Reagan going forward, the technique has been to try and destroy anyone before they rose within striking distance of the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the White House.
These Democrat propagandists could and can count on the corrupt, compliant, Democrat-captured media to help keep their propaganda afloat and their dictatorship fastened on the backs of the American people.
Listen up, if you are a privately-employed, non-government taxpayer --- and thus a member of America’s # 1 class of victims.
We are ruled by armed force and by fraud by lying, thieving, arrogant, bloodsucking, greedy-for-the-unearned, tax-eating government hoodlums, gangsters, and thugs, by spies, spooks, and snoops, and by their sticky-fingered constituents and assorted limpets, lampreys, barnacles, parasites, and other hangers-on.
And they are our “protectors!” Just ask them and this predatory humanitarian Mafia will tell you so. Who protects us from our protectors? The First and Second Amendments to the US Constitution are there so that you can protect yourself from them.
Now, are you ready for this?
What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary! And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!
But the Democrats believe in "statism" --- not "liberalism."
Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold their ugliness.
They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology ---- we say "the government" here in the USA ---- rather than "the state." And that's a dangerous problem.
Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism, and welfare statism ---- these last two are mixtures of fascism and socialism.
Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government ---- it is a constabulary ---- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction.
What "human rights?" I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.
A slave is owned by someone other than himself --- but a free man owns himself. The first article of private property is "the self" --- and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.
These rights ---- The Rights of Man ---- are the gift of nature or of nature's god ---- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.
Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.
The words "liberal" and "liberalism" were hijacked by the Democrats, socialists, progressives, and fascists, long ago ---- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.
It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners ---- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.
Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity!
Declare yourselves to be "liberals," then ---- and kick over the bloody coffee tables --- and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2012! Destroy them!

THE FLEA PARTY ---- OHBUMMER'S "ONE-PERCENT WALL STREET OCCUPIERS" AND OTHER OHBUMMER STREET GANGS
A few months ago I began referring to OhBummer as a pathological flea, inasmuch as the majority of Americans see him as a bloodsucking fraud and a dishonest propagandist.
In the first week of October, 2011, I bumped into a blog comment referring to the Occupy Wall Street gang as "the flea party" and I warned the author that I would STEAL his ingenious reference and use it wherever it could inflict the most damage on the enemies of the American taxpayers.
On October 12, my favorite columnist, Ann Coulter --- she a Christian and myself an atheist --- published a column entitled "WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!" at her anncoulterdotcom website.
Clearly, things have gotten out of hand. This prairie fire of flea-mongers is raging out of control, wherever you turn. ~:<)
It's a lot more people than just "the rich" who despise OhBummer and his rioting foot soldiers.
The Fleabaggers in OhBummer's Flea Party [Occupy Wall Street and its metastasized little cancers in other cities] are the ideological blackshirts, brownshirts, redshirts and no-shirt thugs tasked and directed in their riots by OhBummer allies Michael Moore, David Astroturf Axelrod, and Van Jones, by MoveOn.org, the SEIU, the Huffington Post, and OhBummer's former employer, ACORN --- and, naturally --- by Barak Hussein Hushpuppy Hoover OhBummer, himself --- with a cameo appearance by dopehead rugmuncher Roseanne Barr-The-Beheader.
Oh, the corporations! Oh, the banks! Oh, BOO HOO! Most of these demonstrators and rioters have a wind-up key sticking out of the middle of their backs with OhBummer's fingerprints all over it. He pooped all over their brains and they LOVED it, crying, "Oh! Oh! More poo, please! More poo!"
This so-called "spontaneous, leaderless civil unrest" is a White House operation, conceived in the bowels of Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer's fetid little mind --- while he sat ruminating in the bowels of the White House, evacuating his bowels --- and enacted by OhBummer's chosen proxies, surrogates, cronies, and confederates.
OhBummer and the OhBummer Wrecking Crew have been promoting envy [mental illness] and trying to shift blame to "Greedy Wall Street" and away from themselves --- they who are what novelist Ayn Rand called "greedy for the unearned."
I advocate that the police arrest and jail every one of OhBummer's rioting troops who obstructs traffic or trespasses on private property or in any way threatens or attempts to intimidate any of their critics or their intended victims.
Yes. These are the lying, arrogant, GREEDY-FOR-THE-UNEARNED, bloodsxcking, tax-eating Democrat hoods, thugs, and gangsters. I advocate and I seek their destruction.
There are still approximately 120 million privately-employed nongovernment taxpayers in America today, and while this pathological flea, Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, and his minions, are promoting street riots, I advocate that all 120 million of these privately-employed taxpayers stage a riot on the bridge of OhBummer's nose. That skunk wants race riots and class-warfare riots --- and he should get a riot that will make history.

And so to the President of the United States of America and to the so-called "99-percenters" in OhBummer's street-gang Fleabaggers who claim victimhood --- go blow smoke up your own axxes.
THE AGE OF OHBUMMER
OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system --- the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers --- and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House --- and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.
And --- now widely seen for what he is --- the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him --- and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” --- they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.
He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious --- a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.
He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.
He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden --- indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.
He declares himself the post-racial leader --- “Let me be clear!” he intones --- and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.
He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda --- and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer --- “The Mistake of ‘08” --- the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc --- the community organizer of the OhBummer Wrecking Crew, the Fleabagger-in-Chief, the King of The Republic of Lies --- and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers.
ROUNDS COOKING OFF
The Democrats have this "enemies list" --- denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Terrorist!” and you can be a “Dictator” and you can be a “Hostage-taker!” and you can “Wear a tinfoil hat!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” --- a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be “Uneducated” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Flake!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be "Unenlightened!" and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” --- although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist --- either official, or self-appointed.
Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.
So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things - and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scum --- by The Friends of All Mankind --- by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian hoodlums, thugs and gangsters --- by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.
Well, if you people love Sarah so much, and want her in the President's cabinet, vote for NEWT, and send money to NEWT.org.'
NEWT said she could be ENERGY Secretary.
I quit GBTV because I don't trust Genny Beckster anymore and he hates NEWT, and never lets up trying to destroy him. So I sent the $120 I will save to NEWT.
Something is up when so many of all sides keep asking for NEWT to drop out.
IF he does well on Super Tuesday, things will change VERY FAST.
Don't let the narrative get to you that if he does not finsh second in Arizona and Michagan, he has to drop out?
Since Rick has won some, it is going better for NEWT than he planned.
ALL "experts" were expecting Mitt and Paul to win February and NEWT woud have been further behind..
The manipulation of the American People has been mind blowing and stunning how evil it is HAS BEEN trying pick the candidate for you.
They even JOKED about the "manipulation" (in the open mind control) on SNL, "NEWT should drop out", so that I have NEVER seen before but I hear it 3-4 times a day at least, even when he was finishing 2nd.
Debate coming up soon on 22nd, and I expect NEWT to be on FIRE!
Excellent review of Gov. Palin's speech by Tony Lee:
I am in awe of her strength. Her speech at CPAC was bitter sweet. Her words represented my thoughts. However, I can't help but think SHE is the one who is supposed to be running for POTUS. The other guys just seem like yahooos in comparison.
Thanks for the warm welcome. And you answer your own question about education is annoying in saying, "Rather then elections being won by a qualified candidate, all to often as we have seen, an office is 'purchased'."
Yes, in fact they are purchased by pacs, ahh...just like Cpac. It's like dancing with the devil to get to heaven. Just thought I'd try to clarify the hypocrisy. IMHO, we must part with corruption of pacs and return to the issues without the extremes. And thanks again for the welcome.
Sarah needs to stick around to keep things real, to remind voters who is real and who isn't and to add some punch nad sass to things. Loved when she out-chanted the "occupiers......"
I agree 100%. And it was too bad that John McCain ran such a "clean" campaign. Sara Palins speech was phenomenal just like the one she made at the republican convention. We could have had McCain/Palin in the White House and maybe we wouldn't be in this mess with the Obama regime.
I am not a Romney fan, but will vote for any republican nominated just to rid of Obama.
Palin not convinced Romney is a conservative:
"Most voters in the GOP, and Independents, we will want to see that candidate who we can trust will just inherently, instinctively turn right – always err on the side of conservatism," Palin said on Fox News Sunday. "I am not convinced [Romney is that person]. And I don't think that the majority of GOP and Independent voters are convinced, and that is why you don't see Romney get over that hump."
Palin alluded to recent polls that put former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum atop the GOP field, as well as Romney's tough stretch last week when Santorum shocked observers by winning three primary contests in a row.
"He [Romney] is still in the 30 percentile mark when it comes to approval and primary wins," she said. "He still hasn't risen above that yet because we are not convinced."
Palin said Romney – for all the years and millions of dollars he's spent campaigning – has failed "to articulate his solutions" to the issues that concern voters."
"Real" thanks for your comment, VG1!!!!! Mittens has really branded himself with that clanger and will be mocked for it, I am sure.......
Listening to both speeches, here is the difference between a real conservative (Sarah) and a "Severe" conservative (Mittens).....real conservatives speak from the heart, stand behind their convictions, love their country and make no bones about it.
"Severe" Conservatives speak from both sides of their mouths, sit on the fence and have no convictions and stand for nothing but their own self-interest.
Here's a little preview of 'Young Marxist Islamist Obama' http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/02/meeting_young_obama.html
What Sarah should be pointing out is the pacs of both parties have made literally all the candidates in either parties dupes, gits and dolts that are polarizing extremes.
All pacs create nothing but paid-for lackeys shouting sound-bites. It's time to put our biases aside and recognize the fail of the two-party system and how corrupt it all is from pacs.
Folks as you know, we are way off track and continuing with either party and the polarizing bias pacs create is simply more wrong-headed, illogical, unreasonable insanity.
And the cure is to debate and discuss our future openly, rationally and impartially, weighing all the evidence or non-evidence and moving forward thoughfully and consciously. Unfortunately, if we do that, we will be forced to educate ourselves even more about how the World really works - which most, including Sarah, find annoying it seems.
The ban hammer came down because it was an intentional, drive-by insult. Breaking the comment rules in major fashion on your first visit to the site isn't going to buy a second chance.
This is my first site I go to when I want news that isn't full of cr**. The next is probably theblaze.com. I visit FOX every 2 months because most of the time their rhetoric doesn't hold water and is too biased - I heard Arabs have a big stake in it. Then I go to Limbaugh or Levin, but they have fees, which I can't pay for. I wish Beck's tv didn't have a fee attached, but I understand. Sarah's the best.
His post is spot on. That's an entirely separate issue from "what I base my decision" on. People here have proven they can think for themselves. That's why comments that only focus on negatives of certain candidates are not going to work on us.
That's the old-school, pre-internet model. It's as useful to political debate as a barrel stave is to antiviral research. Even newbies here already know how to operate a search engine.
No one got this kind of love as Sarah Palin did, wow! I knew there were millions like me. Sarah Palin is an average american just like 99% of this nation. Sarah is the love of my life, you don't have to be an ivy-league graduate to know how to fix this nations problems. Common Sense Conservative Solutions is the only way to repair what the Marxist in Chief has destroyed. Sarah is the very best, she speaks for the Tea Party and me.
Major914 and JRD1,
Look, Romney is not my guy. Republicans seem to have a mentality that tends to promote the 'next guy in line'. I don't like it and I am definitely not going to support the 'next guy' at any point until the nomination is a done deal. I am not at all persuaded that he is going to get the nomination anyway - I hope not.
If 'the establishment' is somehow in control, they are somehow getting turnout and votes. It is up to the rest of us to do a better job. I don't think there is any kind of conspiracy, but there certainly is money. Sad to say, I think a lot of Republicans are, well, conservative in more ways than politics. The guy paid his dues, therefore he deserves his shot. I don't like it, but regrettably it seems to be the way many think.
I am just as sick and tired as you are of nominating moderates because they are more 'electable'. Yeah, right. Dole and McCain sure showed 'em. And Bush only squeaked by because people were a bit tired of the Clinton scandals and Gore was not the greatest candidate. I think a real conservative who can articulate real conservative values will do better. So let's fight to get one nominated.
But my highest priority is getting BHO out of office and getting a Republican Senate, and I will do everything that I can to see it happen. And I still say that any conservative that would rather have BHO re-elected than vote for a 'sub-standard' candidate is more concerned with their own sense of moral superiority than the future of the country. Sorry, that is just the way I feel.
This is off-topic, and spammish, besides. Please read the comment policy.
I'm glad you only have 14 comments here, proving this is just drive-by "concern" trolling. And a "fair" example of it, too. You didn't go for the trifecta, though.
You forgot to write that "she looks tired." I can't believe you left that out.
You put your right views in,
you put your right views out,
you put your right views in and you shake them all about.
You do the Romney Pokey, turnin' things all inside-out,
That's what it's all about.
Art's comments were spot on. Why not see if you can support YOUR candidate, and stop wasting your time trying to tear down the other ones?
John McWho? You know....the guy that shouldn't have brought this "chick" aboard.
Enough with telling people that this or that guy is more electable than the rest.
Enough with sending around emails saying that Obama is already going to win a second term because of this, that or the other thing (sooooo sick of that).
And enough with being defensive of conservative values! These are winning values! There is nothing to defend! Tried, true and proven!
Sarah is good, very good. Only two politicians in my life have been able to connect with the American people, Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin. Another great speech.
THE LIBERALS HATE HER......THIS IS WHY I LOVE HER!!!!!!!!!SHE ROCKS, AND SHE LOVES THIS COUNTRY, AND MAKES NO APOLOGY FOR IT.
Didn't it seem to you at times, during the 2008 race, that McCain almost seemed to not want to win, but rather that he wanted to lose as (he thought) a man of character? In any event, I can't help but be thankful to him for giving us Gov. Palin, despite what an awful campaign he ran.
Yeah... how did my thanks to Celeste end up here? Sometimes this comment system seems not to work -- either that or I'm using it incorrectly (a definite possibility).
That was a great speech. I was hunting around for the full speech on YouTube and you were the only one with the entire thing.
Thanks, Celeste. What a nice compliment -- ten million likes! If only I had a nickel (or a dollar; either way) for each one. ;)
