I don’t understand my many people despise Sarah Palin. I am not taking about the Liberals who are scared of her as a threat. I am talking about the Republicans who seem not to understand her. I have a dear cousin and a couple friends who would debate me and trying to understand why Sarah Palin is my choice.
Well, if the media showed a disdain over the governor of Alaska, then there is a reason why. When I heard that Palin was a journalism major and governs outside the mainstream of Washington, D.C., she caught my attention. When I found out that she has an 85% favorable rating among her constituents then I am hopeful that she practices what she preaches. When I came across that she tackled the corrupt establishment and won, she got my full undivided attention.
There is no charismatic individual who is as conservative than Sarah Palin. Not a Mitt Romney or a Norm Coleman can match wits and pizzaz with Palin. She demonstrated a truly compelling life story from very humble beginnings. And lately, she has been in the spotlight and many people are getting nervous because they can’t stop trashing her. For example, the Liberals and a few Republicans are blaming her that she used Newt Gingrich speech many years ago at an event in Anchorage, Alaska last week. But on the video I saw, Palin did make reference to Newt Gingrich speech and credited him for it. It was a good poignant speech by Newt and Palin wanted to reinforce those values and ideas to the audience, but I digress.
Today, Palin was interviewed by Hannity and she gave ”I told you so” talk. Everything she mentioned during the presidential campaign is now biting everyone in the butt. In regards to the economy, she said, “Well, when you consider that the federal government is about eleven trillion dollars in debt, and we’re borrowing more to spend more. It defies any sensible economic policy that any of us ever learned through college. It defies economy practices and principles that tell you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial hole.”
She continues to say, "America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government largesse. We’re borrowing. We’re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own 60 percent of GENERAL MOTORS – or the U.S. government does. But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? It’s China. So that leads you to have to ask who is really going to own our car industry than in America . . . I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok . . . maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America . . . And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead, it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.”
Palin boldly speaks out of our direction toward Socialism. Her reference to the Obama doctrine made her say, “Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roads … nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American people’s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.”
Not to discredit many GOP presidential contenders, Sarah Palin is the voice of the Republican party. She ignites the base as demonstrated last November. She will not pander to her opponents like McCain did with Obama. She is a pit bull with lipstick. Her bold candor is refreshing compare those dull career politicians going to say anything to get reelected. That is why Sarah Palin is my choice in 2012. That is because she talks the talk and walks the walk.
