Perry’s corporate welfare doesn’t sound too conservative to me.

I say Palin any day

Voted this morning..for Palin. I have said that if she doesn’t run that I will vote for Perry over the others in the race, but he truly is part of the political class.I am not going to bad mouth him but if we really want a NEW direction in this country..it’s gonna have to be PALIN!!

I think she can get the independents...they are going to love this new attack on the crony capitalists and political ruling class! It’s a winning debate point. The rinos will hate it...and that’s a good thing...lol! They can go join the democrats..it’s what they do anyway.

So, if Sarah Palin is more conservative than Rick Perry, shouldn’t she be the choice of a Conservative website like Freerepublic.com?

Just asking.

Call me a cynic, but I will be surprised if NRO allows Gov Palin to win this poll.

To: Randy Larsen

It is reasonable for each respondent to factor in their assessment of the potential standard bearer’s ability to win the general election. If one were not to include that factor in the assessment then it would be simply a question of who is the most conservative person available. The ability to win is a critical element of bearing the standard. One might reasonably select a less conservative choice that seems to have a better chance of winning.

DirecTV - says it’s a 24 hour rental.

He wants to see a football game and is willing to watch THE UNDEATED instead, but I said, it says 24 hour rental.

Does that mean, it’s good for MY 24 hours - 24 hours from when I order?

I sure hope so, because he’s willing to stay up to watch it afterward or to watch it again tomorrow with me...lol..

I think that is the way it works. I’m on the phone with U-Verse (AT&T) to find out why they don’t have it listed. If they just did not carry it, I will be canceling my service first thing monday morning!

Palin 77%

Perry 23%

36,591 Votes Total

Interestingly, it hasn't changed much since we started FReeping it, not a tick over the last 2,000 votes. Tells me that FreeRepublic's Palin support levels mirror that of the NRO readership... a very good sign, as that cuts a very wide swath through the GOP base. I'm sure TEA Party support is higher even than GOP.

So I wonder what happened to the 72% who don't want her to even run? How can she be the conservative "standard bearer" if she doesn't run?

Things that make you go, ..."Hmmmm..."

The poll already had 32,000+ (maybe more) votes when it was posted by STAR earlier this afternoon on the LIVE thread, and the percentages were the same. No doubt about it, Sarah is the overwhelming favorite and for all the right reasons.

I am so pissed off I can’t see straight. damn AT&T! I found it on the Pay Per View but it is specific showings that no-one in their right mind would be able to view with any pleasure. Today it was from 6-8(which is ok..just wish I had known..next showing isn’t until the 6th..one at 1:00 AM and another at 11:00 AM next showing the 10th...8:00 AM ..Next the 12th..1:00 AM and then one finally at 7 PM.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!

I beg to differ.

THis is the Primaries.

This is where you vote your conscience and principles.

If your approach was the rule of the day when Reagan was running in 1979, when he was down 30+ points in Polling to Carter, we would have never had Reagan.

Jump in the water FRiend, be brave, vote your conscience and principles first, no one fore-knows the political calculus of this next election cycle except God, and he requires us to also live by our conscience.
