Sorry, but for an elected official to quit before finishing their term strikes me as sef-serving and selfish.

Through the years I've been a reader of your posts here on Free Republic, long before I signed up as a member. I've always admired your principled stand for Christianity and the September 2010 thread about profanity is one that I thought needed saying. I was surprised how many otherwise Conservative (and presumably Christians) jumped all over you for the thread and its intent.

Much as we all oppose homosexuality and its agenda, the Communists have sought to weaken America by destroying the Biblical principles upon which our nation was built. We rightly attack the sin of sodomy here on Free Republic but, on occasion, give the smut merchants (one of whom includes the ultra-liberal Larry Flynt) a pass. Similarly vulgarity is sometimes cited as a manly virtue when it comes from "our side" yet California Governor Jerry Brown's recent use of the term "fart" is correctly diagnosed as an utterance from one with a filthy mouth and dirty (if feeble) mind.

Let we forget, the evil of making homosexuality mainstream was but one goal of the Communists:

18. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
19. Break down culture standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and T.V.
20. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity, as "normal, natural, healthy."
28. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

A few verses from the Holy Bible come to mind:

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. -- Matthew 5:28

Thou shalt not commit adultery. -- Exodus 20:14

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. -- Exodus 20:7

In my opinion, these Biblical admonitions are no less serious than God's instructions about the abomination of homosexuality.

In order to be successful at the national level — and by that, I mean winning the White House — Sarah Palin would really have to undergo a fundamental transformation. She would need to become fully educated on the details and the intricacies of foreign affairs, because there would always be a Katie Couric from the left-wing news media establishment, eager to trip her up on those details.

She would need to become more cultured and sophisticated, and that would probably mean losing at least some of that folksy charm that was so endearing to the Tea Party. I’m not sure many of us want that. I don’t mean that she needs to stop speaking simply and plainly, which is an asset that was highly valued by Midwestern presidents from Abraham Lincoln to Harry Truman.

Careful Bryan, don't jump too fast with your bitch queen Hillary's narrative. Funny how you're not worried about Couric asking Hillary about Benghazi, or how her "Arab Spring" has turned the entire ME into a Muslim inferno, or how Bammy's ROEs are slaughtering US troops wholesale. Yeah, huge foreign affairs expertise there. Not to mention how you infer Couric tripped up Sarah, when it never even happened at all, and was just media spin about media spin that ignored the full responses from Palin that Katie Colon left on the cutting room floor.

Lemme guess - did you put on some heavy black framed glasses to write your little dig? LOL!

FYI, Palin is going destroy Hillary politically once and for all, and all of you crawling communist worms shiver with your queen's own fear of the coming election tsunami. Hillary doesn't have enough OES witch-zombies for this one, and there isn't enough rabid hatred in all of them put together to stand up against the righteous rage over the rape of the Constitution these bastards have - and are - committing.

You collectivists think you own the rage.

You don't.

How is putting constituents, state and family first, self-serving and selfish?

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, I took a little flak on that thread; but there were several who owned to regretting some things they had posted and resolving to do better. That is a good thing.

Yes, The Bolsheviks knew then and know now how to conquer us without firing a shot.

You are spot on regarding the destructive nature of fornication and adultery, both of which seem to have many fans on this once great board.

Um, show me again where the Left failed?

They succeeded beyond their imaginings. Palin has been marginalized. The sheep voters, the FSA, they will never see anything but Tina Fey and the porn videos.

They win some battles (too many battles), but they will always, ALWAYS lose the war.

I think that in order to be more appealing to more voters, she needs to dial it back on the backwoods colloquialisms

Absolutely! It was okay back in 1999/2000 with Bush vs Gore. At the time we were headed for a recession but as far as the American people were concerned it was just a "hard landing" (at least that was how the Clinton WH sold it) but is was not something we couldn't recover from. As far as the American people were concerned, it wasn't really a big deal. Just part of the cycle.

So, you had a VP who uses these lawyer words when he talks about even the most simple issues who served under a President who picked apart the word "is". When you use long 20+ words to talk about the simple issues like Al Gore, you begin to sound like a manipulative liar. Americans were tired of that crap and wanted a President more like themselves. Someone they would invite to a cook-out and be able to talk to and not be talked down to like Al Gore. The nation was really not facing major issues back then mostly because the republicans controlled Congress and Clinton was forced to comply to the will of the people.

That and his running as a conservative was why they chose Bush. (Unfortunately, he fundamentally transformed himself during the second term).

In 2008, Americans were looking for just what you described. We needed more than a war hawk. We needed an economic genius to turn around the economy that Pelosi and Reid gave us after winning control of Congress in 2006. And George Bush was not with clean hands either. It wasn't his conservatism that help hurt this economy - it was his fundamentally transformed policies that helped Pelosi/Reid destroy this economy so that that can use the destruction to get their party back in the WH.

As you said, Americans were looking for somebody who can speak with sophistication because the nation was in a much worse situation than it was 8 years prior. They were no longer looking for the guy that could speak like them at the weekend cook-out.

It was when I mentioned that Palin should dial it back on the backwoods colloquialisms and stop with the "by-gollys" that I was called a Palin basher.

I know Sarah Palin has it in her to save this nation. Back in 2008 she was more qualified to be President than John McCain. She was more qualified than Barack Obama and still is more qualified than Barack Obama.

Her presence on the ticket certainly didn't help McCain

She is the only reason I went to vote in 2008.

Funny how you're not worried about Couric asking Hillary about Benghazi ...

The left-wing news media establishment will never, ever ask Hillary or Obama about Benghazi ... except in the most softball terms. The left-wing bootlickers in the news media will let Hillary and Obama tell the story their way. They won't challenge them on the details or the inconsistencies. And that version will eventually end up in high school history textbooks.

That's what we're up against.

And if you think I'm a "collectivist," or a "communist worm," you're an idiot. I'd like to see Palin rip Hillary a brand new @$$ in 2016. Unfortunately, without some serious preparation -- spending the next four years very, very differently than she's spent the last four years -- Palin just isn't going to be able to do it. It saddens me to say it, but those are the facts.

Everything in your post I concur with totally.

Sarah has been called many things, a rock Star, she is a terrific communicator (a priceless gift of God), she is a common sense conservative, not afraid of the good ole boys in politics, etc., she is a fisherman’ s wife able and willing to help him, she is the Mother of 5 children and loves the last one, too. She is a doer, how many of us have written TWO books, given speeches around the world, had a series of TV programs about Alaska and what a wonderful State it is? She is one smart Lady. My hopes were she would be President instead of Obama. She is a real person of faith and not a false image. There is a definite intention by the left, progressives to besmirch her and all she does is belittled by the “Saturday Night Live” crowd. Hopefully she will say once again she has 'the fire in the belly' for the fight because now she knows how ugly and costly in can be to have the left try to annihilate her.

What do you understand her reasons to be for resigning her office before its completion? What was her personal motive to which you refer? Were there any good reasons for doing so offered at the time, and if so, why were they not believable? Do you also think she was in some way not telling the truth?
