Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Itís Imperative That We Exercise Our Right To Vote Today

...the right which woman needed above every other, the one indeed which would secure to her all the others, was the right of suffrage.
Susan B. Anthony used those words to describe the cause she spent her life fighting for: the right of an American woman to cast a ballot for the candidate of her choice. Because of Susan B. Anthonys tireless efforts and the courage and dedication of countless others, millions of American women will head to the polls today to exercise their right to vote.
When we consider the sacrifices made to give us this right, there is simply no excuse not to vote.
Today, the eyes of the nation are drawn in particular to the three big elections occurring on the east coast. New Jersey and Virginia will be electing new governors, and the 23rd Congressional District of New York will be sending a new representative to Washington D.C. The choices are clear in all three races.
In New Yorks 23rd Congressional District race, Doug Hoffman represents the return of the ordinary citizen-politician who is dedicated to bringing fiscal sanity back to Washington, D.C. Dougs message of cutting spending, lowering taxes, and ending the outrageous growth in the size and scope of the federal government has resonated throughout his district and the country. Voting for Doug Hoffman will send an important message to the powers that be: no more politics as usual.
The governors race in New Jersey is a referendum on the failed fiscal policies of the states current governor. New Jersey suffers under the highest tax burden in the nation a burden which has caused many New Jerseyans to leave their home state for better economic prospects elsewhere. Chris Christie is dedicated to ending the reckless spending, the tax hikes, and the corruption that has plagued New Jersey for far too long. A vote for Chris Christie as the next governor of New Jersey will help to lead this great state The Crossroads of the Revolution back to prosperity.
In Virginia, Bob McDonnells commitment to lower taxes and fiscal responsibility make him the common sense choice in the governors race. If Bobs honorable military service and track record as Virginias Attorney General are any indications of how he will handle the governorship, then it is safe to say that Virginians have an easy choice to make today.
Candidates like Doug Hoffman, Chris Christie, and Bob McDonnell represent common sense answers to the troubling economic questions facing our nation. They are a vote for fiscal sanity and for leaving our children an American future as bright and as promising as the one our parents left for us.
Please take time today to exercise the right that so many people fought to secure for us. In considering these east coast races, it occurred to me that Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and so many of the women who fought to give future generations the right to vote hailed from these states.
Vote today in honor of our past and with hope for our future.

Penn and Teller had a funny video where they asked people to sign a petition to “End the suffrage of women”
no burkha’s here.
Sarah knows how to make an old guy like me get all teary-eyed.
Wow, that’s a new pic! It’s real I take it and not photoshopped?
Lots of people out in our small town.

You keep your messages focused and on a level that can be easily understood and appreciated.
Also like how you remind people where they came from, and don’t forget it, in a nice way.............
I never thought bare shoulders and spaghetti straps could look so .... presidential.
The former “First Dude” of Alaska IS ONE LUCKY DUDE!!!
Todd Palin, lucky man.
Hey all Sarah fans, maybe someone can help me with this. I gave to Sarah’s legal defense fund months ago.
It’s “thealaskafundtrust.com”. The Alaska Fund Trust.
I emailed that website twice recently and got no reply. I asked if the legal problems with the trust, all unfounded claims made my anti-Sarah forces, were cleared up and asked if Sarah had been able to be helped by the fund yet. So far, no reply to my emails.
Anyone on this Sarah ping list know if the defense fund is able to help Sarah yet?
Not likely. It’s effectively “frozen in limbo” and the situation won’t be resolved until well into the next year, after the ridiculous complaint against the legal fund.
It is practically out of reach for Palin, and if it eventually can’t be used for her and her staff, it will be used for charity.
That’s why she resigned from office and has settled her debt by the money from the book deal and sales.
Thanks for the info. The last time I saw articles about this on FR, some miscreants were questioning the legality of the defense fund. Of course it’s the same kind of fund Bill Clinton and many others had. They were very careful to have it all be legal. I hope I do get a reply from the website. I’ll keep sending emails. They still take donations as far as I can tell from the website. I hope that means the fund will be viable soon, even if that isn’t until next year.
After the publicity about the book, I started to wonder about the status of the legal fund. Thanks for your comments on the fund!
The fund is frozen due to complaints from r9etb and Bob J about Sarah Palin continuing to exist in this world and her being posted and blogged about./sarc off
Madame President......what a woman
I’m a girl, but even I think the word “PING!” looks especially right under that photo of Sarah Palin.
She’s got a beautiful brain in that very attractive shell.
I think she’s wonderful.
