Earthquake? Governor Palin Changes Facebook Status From ‘Republican’ to ‘Conservative’
Conservatives4Palin ^ | Friday October 14, 2011

Posted on 10/14/2011 9:01:22 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Ok guys … Is this just a minor thing? Or a big deal? I’ll let you speculate on what it means ….

Here’s 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 Palin’s Facebook page.  I confessed that it had been an exceptionally busy day and that I had not looked at Palin’s page today.  My friend then brought to my attention that under the “Info” link, Palin’s political views have been changed from “Republican” to “Conservative”.  For a brief moment, it didn’t 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.

Yes, I remembered when it was "Republican/Conservative" not too long ago when visiting her Facebook - and now it's just "Conservative"

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Cain has been vetted by those of us here in Georgia.The elites are scared of him and that tells us what we need to know.

ROTFLMAO!

Sarah Palin is...wait for it...for Sarah Palin!
That is not a bad thing, and I actually applaud her for it.
You go girl!

OTOH, Sarah Palin is not really a true Republican.
She is cashing in on her current media hyped fame/infamy.
She will play the media game, and eventually state her support for one of the two RINO candidates.

I don't care who she says she supports.

No, she’s said she won’t do third party, and for all the right reasons - for now. But this is a shot across the bow of the party elites, one we all feel; the establishment GOP is being put on notice.

Their pushing Mitt on us is going to be the last straw. Can’t do much about it now, with little time to work with, but the old Republican guard has got to go!

They could reform the Democratic-Republican Party, and get 1% of the vote every election from the DC insiders/lobbyists/media. Then the far left commie party could get 10%, and the Tea Party wins every election 80%+ of the vote. :)

A man can dream.

Just in the last few years I discovered that I am not a Republican. The only Democrat I ever voted for was Pete Geren, a Texas Dem. I’m a conservative that happens to vote Republican. The Eastern elites are destroying the party and I want nothing to do with it. The Tea Party has thrown a large wrench in their machinery.

I am glad this distinction has been made. I keep wondering why the reps in congress allow us to be involved in Libya & Uganda. How do they affect us? Please Mr Ryan bring our guys back from Africe before they arrive. This is not in our national interest.

It certainly has! If I could register as a Conservative, I'd drop the Republican party like a bad habit.

She’s NOT running. Are some of you people still hanging on her every word? It’s not happening. No earthquake, Palin isn’t going to be drafted, every word she utters is not a clue about some amazing new plan to outmaneuver people - just let it go.

Governor Palin already made clear she isn’t going 3rd party because that would only help Hussein win a 2nd term. Even if it is Romney that wins the nomination, you can count on her endorsing, supporting and campaigning for him.

Ah, but perhaps those that are truly REAL are supported by those without that much cash. And those that are supported by the biggest machines....

Because they can still get enough people to play a game with them?

I want to see “it” fixed before I die.
Because even worse than contemplating the wasted years I spent in service to the USA DOD, is facing my dead great-grand parents, and trying to explain to them why I failed to pass on their hard fought for, simple legacy of freedom to their great-great-grandchild.
If I can't pass on the legacy given to me by my ancestors,I will pass on the desire to obtain it.
