Why I think Sarah Palin should run for president
The Treasure Coast Palm ^ | July 9, 2011 | Elizabeth Hawkes

Posted on 07/09/2011 11:20:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin has stolen my patriotic heart because we both share a love for country and down-home American values and I am pleased to write this tribute to the next and first female American president.

Palin was thrust onto the world's stage as America's foremost political newcomer in 2008 and I was drawn to her by simply listening to the truth her words conveyed.

She spoke of reducing the size of government, her pride in her country and of fidelity to America's continued fight for freedom and liberty.

Now, more than two years later, Palin continues the fight by speaking out against government-mandated health care, abortion on demand, gun control that would strip us of our Second Amendment rights, and out-of-control spending in Washington.

For me, Palin embodies strength of character, grace under pressure and dignity that has elevated her above her accusers, who only tarnish themselves in their relentless attempts to malign her professional record and personal integrity.

Despite what some in the mainstream media would have us believe, Palin is a Godly, honest woman interested only in reducing big government and restoring our great nation to the principles on which it was founded.

I believe Palin should run for president of the United States, because she is the only candidate that both the Tea Party and independent conservative patriots can wholeheartedly support for the 2012 election, thus avoiding the need to support a less viable GOP establishment liberal.

Palin possess not only experience and an untarnished background but earned the trust of her constituents in Alaska and all constitutional social conservatives across our great land.

Sarah Palin is truly the people's choice and the only candidate who possesses the qualifications and knowledge to beat an incumbent Democratic president.

Sarah is my choice, since the Fall of 2008...but I digress...if she runs, she needs to be prepared for Soros, Gates, Buffett and every Lefty billioniare, news agency, paper and pundit to attack her and her family viciously for the next year +.

I think Momma Grizzly can handle it.

I think she should run because I’m sick of the corruption.

“I believe Palin should run for president of the United States, because she is the only candidate that both the Tea Party and independent conservative patriots can wholeheartedly support for the 2012 election, thus avoiding the need to support a less viable GOP establishment liberal.”

I consider myself in the second group: an independent conservative patriot. (I do not always agree with the Tea-party but mostly support them). I think that the author is correct here. Sarah is the one and only candidate who can unite this party. She is the ONLY candidate who appeals to the Tea-party, and non Tea-partiers alike. More importantly, she is the only candidate we have with a chance of winning! (To insist on fringe candidates simply hands Barry four more years).

As a non Teaparty member, I ask us all to come together. Sarah 2012.

The media will make a lot of people who would normally like her and agree with her ideas vote against her. She would have to keep a tight leash on her campaign and prepare tirelessly not to make ANY gaffes.

The media will do everything in their collective Marxist minds to destroy her, warranted or not, true or not, as they have shown.

Pretty much nailed it. I too, was totally struck with her honest, patriotic, no BS way of speaking her mind.

No wonder she scares the liberals and RINOs shiiteless.........She has no "nuance", that is oh so necessary to mingle with the chattering class.......

She needs to run, She is our last best hope. If she doesn’t run, we are doomed to live in socialist hell for who knows how long.

I hope Sarah does run also. As it is, the Republicans that are running will be no better at the helm than Obama. IMO if she were to announce she would take the news and the political situation by storm. The MSM would go into apocalyptic fits.

She must run. She is a great woman sent to us to save us at this time of peril for our country. Never before have we been in such need of a leader such as she. Let us pray for courage to do what needs to be done.

The vultures and hyenas have been attacking for 3 years now and have yet to find a loose end worth chewing on. I think that, if she runs and they try to continue the smear, it will blow up in their faces as the public will raise an outcry that can’t be ignored and do its own research that proves the lies.

Never underestimate the abilities and righteous motivations of at least one million Americans to be far better presidents than the filthy, anti-american, degenerate pig we currently have in the WH. The Rats are masters at dividing opposition to the kenyan marxist and splitting the vote will ensure he wins again. You will not find the “perfect” candidate but you can easily find a million potential candidates who would do well for America compared to 4 more years of the destroyer of freedom and the future for our kids.

The best reason to elect Sarah and the reason the left hates her so viscerally are one in the same.

Liberalism is truly a house of cards, and now that their economic policies have been put into practice and revealed to be the disaster we on the right said they would be, the house is teetering.

The only glue that is holding the liberal house together now is abortion.

And she melts the glue.

Simultaneously maintaing the beliefs that we should n't make war because that requires.....killing; that we shouldnt even step on an insect, but it's ok to kill a fetus is a serious psychological high-wire act. Sarah come along and shows them they can't occupy the moral high-ground as long as she's around. She literally drives them nuts. They see her as an existential threat, and to the extent she could change minds on abortion, she's just that.

So we've got much more to gain by electing Sarah Palin than any other candidate. The house of cards that is liberalism cannot hold up without abortion as its foundation.

The media will do everything in their collective Marxist minds to destroy any Republican.

That job will be far more difficult for them against Palin. Perhaps impossible.

She was a rising star and a viable candidate, right up until 03 July 2009, when she quit.

I believe Sarah Palin will run.

In running, she will show once and for all she is no quitter. It takes levels of courage and fortitude rarely seen to endure what she and her family have endured over the last three long years, and then step into the true lion’s den with sword in hand. Much less to do it with good cheer and a smile on your face.

Her leadership, integrity, charisma and vision will lead America back onto the path of greatness. I continue to marvel at the parallels between Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan. It may indeed be a sign of divine providence that such great patriots arise exactly when America needs them.

Sarah Palin for President!!!

So you will vote for obama because you do not accept the reasons for the resignation? That is the beauty of a free country, you can make whatever decision you want. Even if it is to cut off your nose to spite your face.

I have a feeling Sarah will instead be nominated as a VP nominee, a lot of people apparently believe POTUS is strictly a mans job.

And thus the eventuality may be that again the next POTUS will be from Texas. Personally I hope not. I don’t think Texas has the right people for the next election.

If and when Sarah announces she may very well pull her VP nominee right out of the blue.

Sarah has everything we could ever ask for in a President of our beloved country. One of her best attributes is her moral clarity. I really think she could get this country back on the right track and root out the stinking corruption in DC that is destroying the very fabric of our republic.

RUN SARAH RUN!!

Leftist bastards from the lower 48 were bankrupting her family through frivolous lawsuits, all ultimately thrown out, but the Palins were still responsible for half a million of legal bills. This has proved to be a blessing in disguise, since Sarah as free agent has been a far more powerful force than she’d have been as a governor, running in place against Communist roadblocks emanating from all across the nation. PALIN/RUBIO ‘12!! Bob

I think she’d be wise to sit it out, suspect she won’t run, but if she entered the field tomorrow, she’d be my top choice over the current field.
