"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains."
"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation ... it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces."
James Garfield, the twentieth president of the United States, 1877

Contrary to what I've been hearing on the news lately, platforms do mean something. If they meant nothing, why bother to fashion them at all? It is supposed to represent what those in the party stand for.
The Democrat party stands for things God opposes, such as abortion and now the farce called 'homosexual marriage'. It is no wonder the majority of those at the convention wanted God's Name removed from their godless platform and refused to acknowledge Jerusalem as a place God gave to His chosen people, the Jews.
Our military needs a new Commander in chief- one who loves America and one who holds Israel in high regard.
The only "good" thing about Obama is that he is a great orator. You gotta give him that. All truly great liars make great orators. The worst "bad" thing about Americans is that they are very gullible and ever ready to swallow lies. If this guy gets another terms, then I will truly believe in that December 20, 2012 doomsday prophecy.
Instead of waiting for the media and conservatives to pressure the DNC to change their stance on GOD and Israel the so called Believer Democrats (really an oxymoron) need to see the light about who and what they are throwing their support behind. It is time to make a grown up decision, it is time to make truck load of grown up decisions. The party is over, time to clean up.
Being a retired SFC form the United States Army, I am often offended when any politician tries to affect a patriotic response aimed at getting elected, only to turn their backs on those (myself included) who are willing to sacrifice all so that freedom will live on. I think that all politicians should be required to visit a Soldiers Retirement home once a year and look in the face of those that gave their all to this country. I have visited the retirement home in Indiana more than once to say thank you and that I understand the sacrifices they have made. Tears will not trickle down your face; the tears will flow in a constant stream when you visit. (that is if you have a heart)
Threads can go off the rail easily. As the father of a USMC combat boot 1 year back from Afghan this thread was about troops not politicians. Don't reply "thank your son for his service" because he put his ass on the line because he could can care less.
My son also came back from that horrible war unlike many of his buddies. My son came back without any visible injuries but he has many unseen wounds. While your son may have no visible wounds he has them none the less. Obama is the worst possible person we could have as president and the military and the citizens have all paid a terrible price for his solisiptec ineptitude.
I'm sorry, I know this isn't an open thread, but I just read that Pastor Youcef has BEEN SET FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise Jesus! http://www.christianpost.com/news/iran-pastor-youcef-nadarkhani-acquitted-of-apostasy-released-from-jail-81291/
All Obama's has done is drive this country into the ground. Everyone should go see 2016 if your not sure you will be after.
Obama also doesn't seem that concerned about the possibility of almost a trillion dollars being cut from the military under the upcoming sequestration budget cuts after the election. Even his own Secretary of Defense says these cuts would be catastrophic to the military and must be stopped, unless you want a military that is even smaller than the one we had just prior to World War II (and at the start of that war, we all saw what a terrible cost we paid for that). We live in dangerous times and to have Obama play chicken with our national defense is just terrible. He should be voted out of office on that alone.
I'm proud of this lady. She says it like it is and everyone she endorses should be forever thankful cause they will owe her for as long as they are in office. Wrong, they wont owe her a thing cause that's the lady she is. The media has always counted her out.....they counted wrong.
Always good to hear from the lovely Gov. Palin. My favorite line:
"People are gonna have to choose between free stuff or Freedom. Can't have both."
Just a warning, the C4P site is a banned topic here. Scoop doesn't need his site becoming a place where another conservative site is trashed. Anything on that topic goes over the rail.
Seems as though we have a few trolls that have visited tonight. I saw a comment from John D over on the open thread..... honestly I had no idea what he meant, so didn't reply.
Attention trolls - If you don't agree with Sarah, if you don't respect Sarah, and you don't respect us, why exactly are you here? Move along now back to sites that are more like minded. Thank you!
It's interesting because Obama's 3 years and 9 mos. in the executive office has been one big unreality show. I think Obama should go on Trump's show just so the Donald can tell him he's fired! I mean really, who takes this guy very seriously!
No, quite a few you lefties do take her seriously. That is why you continue to ridicule and demean her every chance that you get. That is why as long as she lives, there will always be a concentrated effort by the ideologically left to destroy her by any means possible. Here's a "reality" for you: Nothing that has been or is being tried is working.
Another one. Where do you people come from? Is there some Liberal Factory that keeps turning out people like you, like cupcakes or cookies?
i have come to believe that idiots like you are a national sickness. A disease, if you will. This one woman has stood up to more corruption, than any other single Politician in the History of America. She is more feared by the Left, than any human being alive. Why is that, do you think?
I'll tell you why. Because she has every one of you Bastards nailed. More than any man or woman since Reagan, she has pointed out the glaring difference between the vision you have for America and the vision our Founders had.
Your position on Sarah, and your position on what you think the future of this country should be, is laughable. Actually, I feel sorry for you. Not because I know you are going to lose this contest, but because you never understood in the first place, what Freedom really means.
You will lose this war. When you are dead and gone and long forgotten, this country will continue to excel, as the bastion of Freedom it has always been to every human being on this planet. They will still swim oceans and cross deserts to get here.
Because this is the only nation on this earth that offers Freedom and a better chance of enjoying that dream. Obama wants to destroy that dream and make us a third world country. If he were here right now, in front of me, I would spit in his face.
(Although I agree with you, you might want to do an edit. You know the rules, and I don't want you do get in trouble with whatever Sheriff is on duty tonight!)
To me, having a debate with a troll is like trying to have an intelligent conversation with a 14 yr old who thinks they know everything.
Better be careful about all that ice cream or Mooseshell will be after you!
I understand. Just trying to be helpful, but you expressed exactly how I feel, so I certainly wasn't offended a bit. They really are quite annoying, but that must be their purpose in life. I guess if you can't accomplish anything else, being annoying is all they can accomplish. Too bad it's here.
There won't be any edit, Maxine. I didn't ask these trolls to come here this evening. If there will be an edit, it will be from the Moderators. I am good with that.
You walked all the way over here from the Washington Times to say the most intelligent thing your feeble little mind could assemble?
WT commenters are awed by this amount of intellectual depth, now you can proudly walk all the back and tell them how you braved all the sharks here and dissed Sarah Palin. You're gonna be an instant hero. Kinda like getting a Pulitzer prize for breathing.
Perspicacious. I'm impressed, deTocqueville. Not only by the word itself, but also by your long name. I have learned over time, that people like yourself are impressed by titles and big words.
Just for the record, you wouldn't last three minutes with Sean Hannity. You would utter three sentences, and he would pull the plug and go to commercial.
I looked at your profile. You're another one. Allow me to offer you my most sincere welcome. In the future, please direct all your comments to me, specifically.
Please, please do me that favor. I look forward to it immensely.
You are one of those nutcases from the, "Conservatives for Palin" site. A site I looked at briefly and then dumped.
Please don't bring your garbage here to this site. Sarah doesn't need you, and we certainly don't need you.
This site is about saving what is left of America.
Hey there rocket scientist its Conservatives4Palin! For someone who looked at the site briefly and then dumped it I find it amusing that you managed to find the time to leave 23 comments before moving on,my guess is your opinions were'nt much appreciated there, I can see why.
hestesh, it took me about two minutes on that ridiculous site to realize what a waste of time it was. Conservatives for Palin is a denigration to the beauty and the wonder of what Sarah Palin represents to the rest of us.
Why don't you let deTocqueville speak for himself? He is the one who made a disparaging remark about Hannity. Of all the Conservative talk show hosts out there, Hannity is the most fair of all of them. He goes out of his way to allow the Left a platform to speak. Attacking Hannity for being unfair, is ridiculous.
To each their own I can respect that, what I don't respect is your ridicule of deTocqueville1 for no apparent reason.
Just looked at your profile. You're one of those idiots I left when I left Conservatives for Palin. What an insult to Sarah Palin that site is.
Simple brain, simple comment. Why am I not surprised? Are Friday nights reserved for Liberal idiots? We need to post that on the schedule.
I take that back. I did refer to you as an idiot in a general way. Please accept my sincere apologies. I will not do that again. I generally reserve that name for Obama and his fat wife.
At least we have reached an agreement of sorts. Don't waste my time and I won't waste yours. You will note, however, that I never called you any names other than your own.
I could say the same for your comments but where would that get us? My guess is no further along than we are at this point.
heshtesh, if you could muster up everything within you, and make one intelligent comment, I would be glad to respond. So far, I haven't seen one.
