Skip to comments.Earthquake? Governor Palin Changes Facebook Status From ‘Republican’ to ‘Conservative’
Posted on 10/14/2011 9:01:22 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Ok guys Is this just a minor thing? Or a big deal? Ill let you speculate on what it means .
Heres the news reported by the Sarah Palin Blog:
I was walking through the grocery store earlier today when I received a text message from a close friend asking me if I had taken note of the change on Sarah Palins Facebook page. I confessed that it had been an exceptionally busy day and that I had not looked at Palins page today. My friend then brought to my attention that under the Info link, Palins political views have been changed from Republican to Conservative. For a brief moment, it didnt phase me as I am also a registered Republican but I chose to list Conservative on my Facebook page as my own political view because in my eyes, it more aptly describes my values.
I suppose one could draw a multitude of conclusions regarding this status change. I know that I certainly have. You can be certain that any move Sarah Palin makes has been well thought out and is with purpose. Could she possibly be sending a message to the RNC that they need to strengthen the conservative planks of the Republican party? Perhaps her promise of sudden and relentless reform as addressed in her Indianola speech and more recently in her October 7th St. Louis speech is a sign that as in the past, neither party is safe from her scrunity.
One thing is for sure, time will tell.

Hmmm! I think she's done with the Republican Party at least for now or at the most finished completely, especially after all the the things the Establishment did to her and her family
She’s aready said she is NOT running as a third party.
I hope she endorses Cain!
I think she is just making the point that many in the GOP(especially the elitists) are NOT Conservatives..she considers herself a Conservative first
At least she didn’t change it to, “It’s Complicated.”
This is something many of us have done long ago.
Once you take off the blinders its really quite easy to see what the republican party has become and really is.
I am always a conservative.....
The elitist think we are kidding around. The party is over for these folks and unless the conservatives have a say this go around there is going to be serious hell to pay.
In the end the establishment republicans can go join their friends in the democrat party where they belong.
Shes a chick. She can always change her mind ;-)
I don’t blame her. Being a conservative is met with much more favorable ears than being a Republican.
I never told anyone especially here in L.A. that I’m GOP because I’m an independent first.
Reminds me 2 months ago when I was conversing in a room full of libs that I blurted out “I’m not Republican” and everyone smiled in the room..
Then I blurted out “but it’s better than being a faggot-loving Democrat who supports a teleprompter-reading idiot kenyan president who thinks America has 57 states..” THEN I got the dagger looks. And that’s why I smiled.
Rush had a big show the other day on the huge NYSlimes article on how the republicans are out to destroy the tea party.
I wonder if this is a reaction to all that.
Maybe the Democrats and Republicans should just make a deal and combine into the “Insiders Party.” Which is what they are both about. They have made many deals in the past to preserve their power positions (witness John McCain and others), so why shouldn’t they just drop all pretense of believing in anything and just call themselves what they are — the Insiders Party.
Even *if* she was going to start a movement away from the Republican Party, she’s not going to say it right up front. Her speeches recently have talked about having need for a NEW TEAM not just replacing the uniform (just replacing Obama instead for a Republican) So while she might not start a third party, it’s away from the GOP
I like Cain, but he simply has not been vetted. Also the MSM pollsters are pushing him just as they pushed all the others for a time. They are only messing with us, trying to pick our candidate.
Truth of the matter is we really no very little about the man.. Google searches does not vet anybody.
Why has he raised such little money?
If the polls are really true, then why is he not rolling in cash?
‘Same reason Bachmann had no cash to speak of, her support was not real
Everyone does realize that it is very doubtful that she runs her FB page herself? I’m sure anything on there is sanctioned, but it isn’t like you are seeing her (or any other famous person) actually posting something. Probably some college kid staffer.
She was never in God’s will
She was in, but didn’t follow
She was in, and still is, or
There is is no God
A shot across the bow to the slimeball GOP establishment, after all their backstabbing of both her and the tea party?
Fire for effect! I love it.
This is along the lines I suspect - she did it because she’s disgusted with the RINOS. It wouldn’t surprise me if they informed her she’d get little to no support from the GOP if she happened to win the primaries.
I think she loves the USA more than the GOP does. Sorry state of affairs.
