Skip to comments.The Non-Quitter: Sarah Palin
Posted on 06/15/2011 11:40:40 AM PDT by CondoleezzaProtege
The letter she wrote to her family before the birth of Trig gives us a glimpse into the soul of the penultimate "NON-quitter."
In her email Palin imagines a letter from God to the family about to launch on its challenging child-rearing experience together.
"Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be 'Trig', because it's so fitting, with two Norse meanings: "True" and "Brave Victory"."
"I've given Trig's mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that.I'll give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trig's challenges, but I won't impose on you... I just need to know you want to receive my offer to be with all of you and help you everyday to make Trig's life a great one."
"This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what really matters.The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet. He'll show you what "true, brave victory" really means."
She did not quit on her baby, which 90% of her peers choose to do away with. She did not quit on her family, and above all, she did not quit on her GOD. She did not quit her faith for the sake of convenience or self-preservation, but prepared her heart for sacrifice and the unknown.
GOD does not reward quitters.
Agreed that Hillary would certainly have been a better alternative, but in the grand scheme of things, I am happy with how things turned out. Palin’s dramatic debut into society was quite exciting and fun to witness. Still is.
She would not have had the impact she’s been able to have had Hillary won the Dem nomination.
Yes. I think that's the retarded idea some folks would have us believe.
Anyway, it was Andrew Jackson in 1825, who quit his position as senator, and then three years later in 1828, he was elected president.
No one would dare say that Old Hickory couldn't handle the pressure.
Right you are. But it won't matter to a few of the critiques.
All that matters to them is the checking off that box on the resume, even if it means the person, the state and the country would be worse off.
I see people like that at work. They are meaningless box checkers. They don't see the overarching picture. What they see are boxes in search of that resume padding check-er-ino.
I quit being manipulated by the media!
I quit being told what to think by communist professors!
I quit allowing government to run my life!
I quit getting my information from Government News Agencies.
I quite Chris Matthew!
There... I’m a “QUITTER” too!
WTC...for the twelve friends I lost that day...for my wife, son and two brothers who all survived (and all in different locations within GZ)...for the work I did with my son in the rubble the next day and the day after that....
So, no, I'd say you missed by quite a bit there sparky.
First you re-define words to fit your fantasy. Now you re-write history. Must really suck to have to stand truth on its head to create the reality you want.
Praise God for your family members who
survived that awful day. I grieve
for those you lost and for our nation.
No Screen Name wasn’t intending to
diminish your loss. Please extend
Grace to our FReeper FRiend and try
I think it would be more correct if you said without Obama we would not have the Tea Party movement
Rick Santelli started the Tea Party movement. Palin fans don’t seem to understand that the Tea Party has no leader. That is a good thing, otherwise it would be over in one losing election.
I think you’re a liar. Prove your assertion, shill.
Boy, ain’t that the truth. :)
Three wars (two with dead Americans)...two trillion wasted...liberties eroded on a daily basis...the dollar in the tank...Israel on the brink....the ME going AQ all over...Iran one step from the bomb...China jumping ugly vs. Viet Nam...Russia laughing at us...jobless Americans at an all time high...the unions own Detroit...
The list of damage to this country in the past 2.5 years is nearly endless....and you're happy about it because it gives you a chance you get giddy over palin.
You might be the biggest dope ever to post here.
And yes, I read your well constructed profile page.
It's ok, you don't have to. We both know you can't.
I didn’t say it...the dope who started the thread did.
I’m afraid you are in a little box unable to think outside it.
I didn’t say it...the dope who started the thread did. I just quoted him.
I call BS.
