Obama’s America is today’s California – complete with $100 billion taxpayer funded bullet trains to nowhere; out of control environmental extremists who have destroyed family farms and left some of the most fertile farm land in America fallow in order to protect a three inch fish; permanent high unemployment; government policies hostile to small business job creators; crippling high taxes; an abysmal real estate market; bloated government that wastes taxpayer money; endless budget shortfalls due to massive unfunded liabilities; city after city declaring bankruptcy; and a state government run by, in the words of one Wall Street Journal writer, “a brothel of environmentalists, lawyers, public-sector unions and legislative bums.”
ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON ANALYSIS!!!
If Romney and/or Ryan think that Sarah Palin, as well as the Tea Party, are not necessary for their election to be successful, then they are dumber than a box of rocks. The RINOs are being turned to pasture in every election. Those that remain are still influential in the RNC, but even that is waning. The biggest scam ever perpetrated on the American people is Obama and his gang of socialist thugs who have absolutely no regards for the best interests of the American people. The corrupt mainstream propaganda machines and the RINOs are stil viable, but will become less of a factor as Americans in every walk of life wake up and stand up to these attacks from within by those who have deceived their way into office. Obama is an evil that was well orchestrated by an anti-American force that will not go easily.
Phenomenal, Brilliant and another example of the (POP) - The Power of Palin.
I respect her so much!!!!!
Obama wanting to unify the people was a bold-faced lie. The only hope he has, or has ever had, is inciting racial hatred by playing the race card. He even used it on Hillary. Throw in class warfare and gender complete lies about attacks on women and you have his only hopes of re-election. Ryan is so far over his head on the economics of business, it is embarrassing. The hate and vitiole coming from Obama and his thugs will reach levels never seen before in this country. He will have the libs actually foaming at the mouth so violence as a last resort is not out of the question.
Thanks for posting Scoop. Once again Palin lays out the scourge of Obama and his disastrous policies and the policy program required to start the repair process. Articulate, specific and with the answers.
As one of those middle-class Californians whose decisions every day are based on "How will this help me get out of California" I can see where this country is headed, and I'm telling you, you will not like it.
I feel like a lighthouse on a rocky shore, trying to warn residents of other states...
Turn your ship around!
This coast is filled with the wreckage of 37 million shattered dreams and a diminished hope for the future.
Many will not heed the warning until it is too late.
Until their state gets a gash in the hull, and the lifeboats are filling fast to flee the disaster.
I pray for the rest of America. Please do not make the same mistakes we did.
"Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:"
I am in California now.....not from here. I grew up in NY and have been seriously thinking of leaving except for the job I have that pays well, very well. I have thought of moving back to NY ( i would move to SI which is vry conservative yet still NY ) but that pretty much is just like Cali. I am really not sure what to do. I have been praying for guidance but so far still not sure about what to do.
Sarah's article is elloquent!!! She speaks the TRUTH!!! We MUST stay focused, ignore the lies and smears of Obamanism, get to the polls on November 6th to show our unity for the country we so love and vote for Mitt and Paul! We MUST get this destroyer out of the WH!
In a way, Sarah Palin is like a shadow president. She commands a lot of power and respect. She is also the polar opposite of NObama. She never puts herself before America or before the cause of it's freedom! I could go on lauding Palin for paragraphs, but anything I would write wouldn't do her justice.
Now, Romney/Ryan better be paying attention to what she is saying, who she is saying it to and how well her message resonates! Liberals are often accused of taking the black vote for granted. I do not like the idea of Romney taking the Conservative/Right vote for granted on the grounds that we want NObama out. He should be working towards making us WANT to support him, not because he's ABO but because he's Romney! If you get me.
To that end, it would do no harm and a lot of good for Romney camp to embrace Palin and her message! Show the base we mean something, that he CARES about us! That we're not just "already in the bag" and that he can ignore us! I don't know if I'm making any sense, but at the end of the day, Romney needs us as much as we need him and it's about time he showed it!. Sarah Palin is the standard bearer! Romney needs to recognize that.
You are making perfect sense. In fact this is core. A litmus test of character and intent.
With one phone call Romney could harness an awesome power and energy. With one bold move, Romney could put his record and lip service to the Constitution behind him.
And with no risk or downside to it, one has to ask why he has not?
White one reason Mitt chose Paul was because he was conservative. So be fair....he did listen to US!! You know we like to sometimes knock Mitt but think about this...LOOK ALREADY HOW NASTY OBAMA has been with Mitt? I mean come on...linking a woman's death long after he left Bain....Mitt is not perfect no...BUT HE IS NOT DUMB!!! Think of it this way...GREAT LEADERS learn on the Battlefield, they adjust, change strategy, move assets, rethink, always moving forward, trying to get stronger, trying to profit and trying to win....NOW MITT DID THAT YESTERDAY WITH RYAN!! He knows Ryan will be a BIG DRAW and some with EGO could not take that...but Mitt is a bigger man and give him the PROPER credit for not only listening to CONSERVATIVES but for showing LEADERSHIP AND A TRUE DESIRE TO WIN!!
I will be hard on Mitt when needed but I will praise him and encourage him as well. And when he does a great thing like putting RYAN on the ticket...THEN I WILL INDEED PRAISE HIM and HE DESERVES IT!!
Mitt is showing the most important quality in a President....LEADERSHIP!! Giving people a reason to vote for you!! That he what he did yesterday...MAKE NO BONES ABOUT IT...it was Mitt and Ann that made that call. I guarantee you the MASS LIBS wanted Portman or Pawlenty!! Mitt made the call and the RIGHT ONE!!
Reward him White with acknowledging his decision!!
I do very much want him to use Sarah...OH BOY YES!! And Mitt is a smart man....he knows how much of a massive mover she is!! He is no dummy!!
But Conservatives give Mitt credit and encourage him....Yes we will go after when we feel he is wrong....but lets tell him GREAT JOB AND DO MORE AS WELL!
thanks Michael, a Good Job is never a complete product to provide security, well being, good health or raise standards of living in any environment or community. A COMPLETE JOB wins war, provide ambition, encourage dreams and innovation. Complete job brings honest labours of many in various forms from food to clothing to housing to energy to transportation to communication to health to education to whatever beneficial to human being if supported and implemented. There I CALL OUT Romney and his staff, if there's a well talented highly skillful player in our side we don't put in the field, we only play not to loose. Palin Play to win, so do I, so did Reagan and many millions of the conservative organisms.
Palin is the equivalent of the nuclear bombs harvested havoc and chaos @ Hiroshima & Nakasaki.Is that what big guns refer to ? "Just Win Baby." Al Davis ! Raider Nation
Hey, I support Mitt and have said so many times. I also expressed my delight at his choice for V.P. I always give credit when it's due. But this thread is about Palin, not Ryan so that's where my comment was directed. Yes... Romney did a good thing picking Ryan. But that doesn't mean he should get a pass on ignoring Palin, does it?
It is hard to tell if your abrasiveness is intended to foster support for Romney or to confirm doubts about his campaign tactics.
Why are you so confrontational? You're reacting like I smacked you down when I did no such thing? We're all on the same side here.
Excuse me...I wrote several comments about Palin so that comment is useless. As far as your criticism of Mitt over Palin. First he JUST ANNOUNCED RYAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!! Get real. If you bothered to read above I addressed Romney and Palin. He will embrace Sarah because he knows as a LEADER that it is the right thing to do. He will do it at his pace not yours. While you may not like that will not change it!
By the way Mitt....YOU BETTER USE HER ON THE TRAIL...you want CROWDS OH BABY will you draw crowds!!!
ALL STAR LINE-UP: PAUL RYAN, MARCO RUBIO, BOOBY JINDAL AND THE LOVELY SARAH PALIN!! and I MEAN ALL TOGETHER in FLORIDA, OHIO, PENN, VIRGINIA, IOWA, WISCONSIN, NORTH CAROLINA, MICHIGAN, COLORADO, NEVADA AND NEW MEXICO!! All right I wil throw in New Hampshire as well!
Oh I would pay big bucks for that!! Can you imagine the crowds, the energy, the momentum and dynamics!!
THE DEMS have nothing close!!
Sarah...Sarah....LIKE THAT HALL AND OATES SONG!! She is just dynamite....brutal, coherent, decisive, lethal, factual and sexy(as usual). Her entire column should be taken by the Romney campaign and used over and over again!! Tie the word Ideology and you have the Marxist nailes to rights!! Sarah you definitely belong at the GOP convention and there is no doubt in my mind that you move more people than other other public figure. Even yesterday, BUZZFEED that liberal pile of horsedung smeared Sarah over the VP pick. It is just not amazing that a woman who runs for no political office COMMANDS TO THIS DAY THE ATTENTION SHE GARNERS??? It is amazing...they fear her like no other person on the left!! Why? Heck she energizes people on NUCLEAR POWER BATTERIES!! I love that woman and she had better be at that CONVENTION MITT!!
Mitt take note on how to define OBAMA and learn it!! Paul can explain this beautifully and you need to be the leader on this since you sit on the TOP OF THE TICKET!! You explain things the way Sarah just did and tie this to his IDEOLOGY....you have a HOME RUN and GRAND SLAM!!
Thank you Sarah as always for being like a LASER BEAM when it comes to attacking and putting OBAMA in his place!!
TAKE NOTE MITT!!!
As I was reading this while the coffee kicked in, it was neither registering nor resonating within in my own voice. My eyes went line to line, but it was Sarah P.'s voice I heard. She so writes as she speaks. So much so It comes across not like reading but like hearing. I still hear her voice as I write this. Pretty cool.
Obama: The candidate versus the President. "The Strange Case Of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde". One bearing no resemblance to the other.
Good say Sarah. Let's get some good folks elected. Let's get some bad folk unelected.
Ryan said yesterday as he conjured his late Father's words, "son, you're either part of the problem, or part of the solution". SP be part of the solution, a big part.
Unabashed class, and one fearless Lass.
The second sentence cues her voice up for us, "Goodness, he's got that right."
But the pure Palin style comes down hard on Obama where she says "...but he’s all for subsidizing offshore drilling in Brazil and sitting back on his thumb while China moves in to pursue oil deals with Canada..."
Heh. Sitting on his thumb.
And she manages to make that read like a high-class, hoity-toity comment.
Good grief. It seems as though every single time there is a post here about Sarah Palin, several get sanctimonious about the RNC not inviting her to speak at the convention, blah, blah, blah.
For goodness sakes, we all love Sarah, and agree she is a great lady with great ideas. But why can't everyone just let Sarah be Sarah? I love having her as a great Grisly Momma, working her magic from the outside (she is great at doing that).
Give it a rest please and stay focused on this election. Who knows, one day Sarah might become our Margaret Thatcher, but if we don't win this election, I fear we won't have that chance.
Stay focused folks!
I'm usually in total agreement with you MaxineCA, but it's not about letting Sarah be anything.
It's about what's right, period.
Sarah obviously knows what she's doing. Not one of us needs to be telling her a thing. But if any person in the entire right-side of the political spectrum EARNED a right to speak at the convention during prime time, it's her.
It's not an emotional argument, it's simply a fact.
If Romney loses this thing, it's on him.
Maybe it's just me, but I really, really trust her judgement and don't want to second guess what's going on. She has become very smart, all things national politics having been thrown under the bus. I don't know if she was invited and turned them down, or if she will be the convention surprise. None of us know.
I get frustrated with everyone that wants to second guess everything, jump to conclusions and get angry. She is one smart gal, and I trust she has a plan, but at this point in time I don't feel it's our place to question. I'm sure when she is ready she will let us know what that plan is.
And yes, she has earned every bit of respect that we have for her. Personally, I would love to see her become the leader of either a new Constitutional Conservative party, or reform the R's with those principles.
Let's wait and see what happens.
but if we don't win this election, I fear we won't have that chance.
When the Republican VP nominee is voting against the Constitution (see his Yes vote for S. 679) its not giving me much hope.
And when words are speaking louder than actions to conservatives....its not a good sign. I r4eally really need to hear Ryan explain that vote of his on S. 679, its very very disturbing.
While you are all in a twist about Ryans votes, which I am in agreement with you, I will continue to fight on with the weapons I have available. Romney/Ryan is the ticket. If they are elected, I will continue to fight against establishment repubs. This is a street fight against a tyrant that is dismantling my country and destroying the future of my three children. All I see in your response is that when it comes to a fight like this, you are useless. Not happy about Mitt/Ryan. Supporting, campaigning and beating on doors for them will not compromise my Conservative principles, individualism, etc. All you are looking to do by posting at this site is poke people in the eyes and piss and moan and fight with people that you mostly have the same views with. I'll say it again, when it comes to this fight, you are useless. Now take your ball and go home.
Not sure what part of "I don't vote for progressives or RINOs" you don't understand. Compromise your principles for your beliefs all you want since they are yours. I will not with mine thank you very much. I don't buy into the hyperbole, you do, its ok! We're both individuals with different brains, ideas and principles on how to get an actual conservative in the WH.
Have a nice day.
Did he say he was "not voting?" Did he promote it? Did he promote "keeping Obama in office?"
You missed all the ideas he wrote about and made it personal, and by adding that "think critically" you are keeping it personal.
Not a very convincing argument, and also not how we do things here.
What ideas? Not voting and keeping BHO in office? It is about him, and you and me, and everyone else that is able bodied enough to think critically and vote.
I have made it clear my disdain for progressive repubs, what don't you get. My ideal ticket would be a West/Paul (Rand) ticket. The battle is on more than one front, pop culture, the opposition party, the media and establishment repubs. I would love people on our side to fight like liberals! They're good at it and kick our ass all over the place. They don't sit on their hands. However when we don't sit on our hands, are active, swing back and vote, we beat them. What good are your conservative principles doing you pointing out Ryans votes or proposed legislation that is not conservative in principle here on this sight. Most of us already know about it, Mark Levin has even pointed it out. For that matter he has taken West to task on a few of his votes. Where am I defending Romney in my posts? His campaign has been weak at best. If he is elected and governs like Bush did, God only knows what kind of freakshow that would set us up for if Bush got us Obama. My goal is to put the brakes on this a-hole in office now, stop the bleeding. WTF is your goal? Read your posts to yourself and pat yourself on the back for being conservative. I could vote for Romney Nov.6 and sleep like a baby even knowing what a lib repub that he has been. I know if mittens was elected, the fight against progs/statists is not over. You can twist yourself into a pretzel convincing yourself Romney or Ryan are the same as BHO, or that BHO is no threat and just a passing problem that will be easily fixed by whatever future fantasy candidate you conjure up in your head. Romney and BHO are not the same, not close even with his lib leanings. Besides posting here at TRS what kind of civic duty as a responsible citizen are you performing to rectify this problem we are in? I'm not trying to destroy you, I'm saying if you are a principled conservative get off your ass and do something about it. Stop the bleeding with a vote for Romney, help other conservatives. If Romney wins continue your fight against the establishment repubs., but for God sake, don't piss away a vote and a chance to take a swing(punch) at BHO. If Romney wins we can focus on purging progressive dems and repubs locally and nationally. If need be, we primary Romney and remove his ass too if we can. Does my idea "compromise" your conservative ideals so you would not be able to look in a mirror? Really?
You just told someone his principles suck, because he maintains a conservative set of principles. Then made it all about him, and not the ideas he wrote about.
No wonder the Republican party is the Stupid Party.
A gallant but futile effort my friend.
I too live in CA and will continue to fight, as opposed to sit home with my principles. I am so energized about the Ryan choice! I will even get a bumper sticker. In this state, you could get "keyed" or worse. It's worth the risk!
Fight on friend!
BRAVO 1,2,P!! I have been attempting to say just that ever since Mitt won the nomination. LET'S ROLL!!
If the GOP controlling both houses allows Obama to continue to yake the country down the toliet then your problem should be with the GOPe, not me.
Twist yourself into a pretzel all you want and feel free to act like a liberal defending Romney because your the one who has to look at yourself in the mirror. Your name calling and liberal (vote the way I insist or I will destroy you) tactics don't bother me one bit.
The culture and make up of the electorate of the US is much different than it was under FDR and even as recent as Carter. The world will not end as predicted by the Mayans, really? Your wit is blinding! Ok, and your still going on about Ryans plan and tHIrteE YEarS! I demand you do something, yes, as you put it "actions speak louder than words" so act! Oh wait you would rather watch this country go down the sh*tter faster under a BHO second term than remove the POS now. I almost went back and edited out my combat comment as I would normally see it as bad form if not lame. After thinking about it and reading your response, I am solid with it. Politics is combat without the actual bullets. Libs know it, I know it, unfortunately RINO's and pollyanna's such as yourself don't. Obviously there is nothing in your life that is bigger or more important than yourself. Your "principles" suck. My intent is to get people in the fight because Obama is no joke. This is much different times we live in than the forties or late seventies when our country could survive a tyrant and an idiot. You would not defend my right to say anything, you say as much in your comments and is such a pathetic cliche'. As far as kissing your ass, pick a spot because your all ass.
I apologize to some members of Right Scoop as I know this is a sight that is much more civil than others. My intention is not to offend.
is the same as the RINO's you claim to despise
Not quite, its just I understand the difference between hyperbole and reality. Sure Obama is a wannabe marxist but so was FDR and Carter, we survived them and we'll survive Obama. He'll be a lame duck second termer for four years instead of the traditional two. Big deal. EOs are easily removed by a signature etc...
Also, I want to assure you the world is not going to end on Dec 21 this year as the Mayans predict.
Indeeed I do defend Palin and West and if Romney would have picked an ACTUAL conservative like them he would have gotten my vote but he picked a hyped faux conservative who's closer to Clinton than Reagan if I'm to believe actions speak LOUDER than words.
Only in bizarro-world do words speak louder than actions and I don't reside there pretending about Ryan's past votes when it actually counted for increasing power of the state and growing the debt. Mitt Romney doesn't impress either since much of his balanced budget was paid for by a tax increase Dems passed the year before he took office. Beside that Ryan's country saving budget balances the budget in 30 years. 30 f'n years!
Indeed please do feel free to do what you wish with your free time as will I. I am not demanding you stop pushing doorbells for Romney like you seem to be demanding I vote for Romney.
Kiss my butt with your combat comment jerk and comparing it with politics is quite silly if not moronic. I disagree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it. Apparently you don't wish to extend that right to me or my right to vote for that matter. Not very American nor conservative of you.
Have a nice day!
The USA will cease to exist as we know it with Obama, he is the real deal. Your view that BHO is not that big of threat is the same as the RINO's you claim to despise. Go ahead, sit on your ass waiting for another Reagan. I'm sure your in the trenches at lib sites duking it out defending a Palin or West, which is as close as we will get to a Reagan. Where did I mention Ryans plan that you are so vigorously attacking. Your "conservatism" is weak at best. I live in Cali. I will knock on doors, man phone banks to get BHO out of office and these RINO's in. Even in this s**thole state I reside in for now, I will fight. You will rollover or sit on your hands. I will work to get Romney/Ryan elected to buy myself and others that love this country some time to do battle with progs in this party. If we lose this election the GOP is done. If we win this election and this admin is run like the Bush admin, we're done. I will however take my chances with Romney/Ryan and double down my efforts to work on a new party or purge the GOP of progs. "Besides all that the only votes that actually matter are those in swing states and I don't live in one." I'm glad I never had people like you next to me in combat. Pound sand weakling.
We agree to disagree then. You buy into the hyperbole that the USA will cease to exist if Obama wins reelection. I understand it for what it is, nonsense. The USA survived FDR, Carter and Clinton and will survive Obama. With that said I'm not afraid of a lame duck second termer and also believe its going to take that to get our Reagan in 2016. Gridlock is underrated! And Ryan's plan fixes the budget in 30 years, 30 years!? Do you hear me 30 years, it isn't solving anything.
Sorry pal but I will not compromise my conservatism over hyperbole. EOs are easily reversed with a signature. And you can go on about O-Care all you want but I don't believe Romney is going to repeal and do nothing but tweak it and the GOPe will come up with a lame excuse that Democrats blocked them from repealing it.
I don't vote for progressives no matter what letter they have next to their name. And I don't believe Ryan is an actual conservative because his record speaks a different language than his mouth.
Besides all that the only votes that actually matter are those in swing states and I don't live in one.
Have a nice day.
Amazing! I am trying to convince you BHO is a bigger threat right now than Paul Ryan. In my opinion progressive repubs are as big a threat as any other statist democrat. Right now I will concentrate on defeating the biggest threat now and deal with RINO's ruthlessly after Nov. 6. While you prattle on about S.679 and enjoy reading your posts to yourself, I will do the fighting against the enemy. Patton kicked the Nazi's asses first and was prepared to kick the Soviets asses next. He was smart enough to deal with the immediate threat, then deal with the looming threat next. I'm wasting my time, I know, for you those pesky trees are blocking your view of the forest.
I'm happy for you but stop demanding I turn into a clone of yourself because its not very conservative of you to do so.
So called Conservatives such as myself will fight with the hand we have been dealt. S.679 is dismantling, it is, but not to the extent that BHO is dismantling this country in real time. I will not sit back on my ass whining about Paul Ryans votes while BHO is going full throttle. I will choose my battles, fight the biggest threat now and deal with RINO's later with the same determination and voracity. The "demanding I march in lockstep" was weak.
This is a street fight against a tyrant that is dismantling my country and destroying the future of my three children. All I see in your response is that when it comes to a fight like this, you are useless.
Hey Einstein, voting Yes on S.679 is part of the dismantling. Sheeeeeeeeeesh!
And when so called 'conservatives' like yourself are demanding I march in lockstep with your opinion they are behaving like liberals. And when conservatives start behaving like liberals there really is no hope conservatism can win in the end.
Another couple of great and insightful posts Maxine. You have been quite prolific this weekend, and we have been the fortunate beneficiaries :-)
Unions are parasites. I know I keep repeating that, but only because it's true. They are also like spiders and insatiable vampires. Either way they suck the life-sustaining fluid out of the host until it's nothing but a carcass of dried up bones.
Unions oh unions, how do I hate thee, "let me count the ways": 1,2,3...this might take a while..ok a trillion.
Of course it's the institution of unions and what they do which I despise, not the people forced to ply their living, or the companies, cities, states, and municipalities forced to try and make it with permafangs imbedded in their jugulars. It's the never-ending extortion, bolstered by labor laws allowing it, and government agencies like the NLRB, tilting so much to one side they make the Eiffel Tower look perfectly vertical by comparison.
The government itself is every bit as blood-sucking as the unions. Even your land is no longer yours. If I could personify our federal government in song, it might sound something like an old familiar one, but with a twist. Imagine this behemoth singing:
"This land is my land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest to the gulf stream water
This land was made for me and me..."
Hey government! Hey unions, Back off ! You've feasted enough on the fruits of the people. Get back in your box, and stay there.
I like your point about "letting Sarah be Sarah." I don't really think she cares one way or another about speaking at the convention. Despite all the lies of the critics, she's never tried to draw glory to herself. She's always just wanted to help her country. But I think people are upset by her not speaking because so many of us identify with her. Not inviting her is like not inviting us. It's like saying we're not welcome to the party. That's why it rubs people the wrong way.
I agree and many are still very unhappy about Romney being the nominee. They know that we really have no choice but to vote for him for the sake of getting obama out of office. At least if Romney and his campaign would extend some kind of gesture that what we think is important, it would go a long way.
She surely loves our country, no doubt about it. And I would agree, she probably doesn't really care about speaking at the convention. She has a strong voice, and should be able to express it in the manner she chooses.
It just frustrates me that people communicate what THEY want rather than considering what Sarah wants. No one knows what goes on behind the scenes in our messed up political world. If they really have trust in her, they will let her do it her way. She is one smart gal, so I wish everyone would just leave it up to her judgement and stop putting their "wants" before that.
