“Well, Have You Had Enough Yet, America?” ~ Sarah Palin 9/3/2011.
A Time For Choosing ^ | September 3, 2013 | Isabel Matos

Posted on 09/03/2013 3:00:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Have you noticed every time there’s bad news it comes from the left or our RINOS who betray us? And every time there is something to feel hopeful about, you can see or read about it on Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts, tweets, interviews or appearances. She brings us good news – things to build from.. stories of charity, pro-abortion reality show celebrities, big movie stars with something smart to say, or even shout outs to politicians doing the right thing. My favorite posts are always pictures of her family. They are so uplifting! Today marks the 2nd anniversary of her Indianola Speech which can be summed up in five points:

Restore States Rights
Repeal ObamaCare
Reign in Spending
Replenish Energy Resources
Zero Corporate Tax Rate

Since 2008, Sarah Palin has been leading this nation which as been on the verge of going in a totally different direction. When no one else believed it could happen, she made the sun shine a little brighter for us in 2010 an is ready to do so again in 2014. Whether she has a title or not doesn’t matter because she is the one voice speaking for the people, like a conscience needed for those lost in corruption, spending, and aimless pandering and shameless politicking. She is a rarity in politics, something many choose to ignore, especially on our side. She has done more for the GOP than the GOP has done for itself. Here’s how:

by Wayne Mazza

Well here is a little newsflash for the good ole boys, she is rebuilding this nation brick by brick under intense fire from this bunch of crony capitalists and every candidate she endorses that wins over the establishments wishes is a win for America. Do you see any of these good ole boys endorsing Constitutional Conservatives? Absolutely NOT.

Where were the Romney’s, Santorum’s, Paul’s, Roves, Morris’s, and Coulters when Governor Walker was under intense heat from the Unions, Democrats, and hired thugs on Tax day in Wisconsin? Governor Palin in all her splendor was speaking to the Tea Party Tax day Crowd with over 6000 paid thugs on the outer fringes spewing hate, vulgarities, and downright rudeness. But there she was, taking it to them on a cold, snowy, and rainy day in Wisconsin. She was NOT TIMID, DID NOT WAVER, AND WAS NOT DOUBLE MINDED!!! She took a stand when the rest of the GOP/RNC cowards stayed home.

Where was this gang of RNC/GOPe weak kneed rabble when Governor Palin brought to light the DEATH PANELS in ObamaCare? They exist in this law and are the first step to euthanasia for our seniors and disabled. But there she was, shining a light so bright on this subject, they could not ignore it. She was NOT TIMID, DID NOT WAVER, AND WAS NOT DOUBLE MINDED! She took a stand!!

Where was this gang of RNC/GOPe liver lilies when Governor Palin talked about the quantitative easing that would hurt our economy? No where to be found, that’s where. But again, Governor Palin was NOT TIMID, DID NOT WAVER, AND WAS NOT DOUBLE MINDED. Once again she stood tall, she took a stand! Where was this gang of RNC/GOPe self interests when Governor Palin talked about crony capitalism? One guess! You betcha, at the TROUGH!!

These permanent political class politicians have fattened themselves off the hard work of every American with a job using crony capitalism to the best of their advantage! No wonder, like Goliath hated David, these yahoos despise Governor Palin. But Governor Palin has NOT BEEN TIMID, HAS NOT WAVERED, AND IS NOT DOUBLE MINDED. Governor Palin did not allow lobbyists in her office. She took a stand!

Where have these Permanent Political Class dunces been for the last 40 years regarding Energy Independence? They have been truant. But Governor Palin challenged big oil, challenged the permanent political class, challenged her party to force EXXON to drill on lands they leased FROM THE PEOPLE OF ALASKA! Governor Palin was NOT TIMID, DID NOT WAVER, AND IS NOT DOUBLE MINDED. She took a stand.

We must take back our party by removing ineffective leadership, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, McConnell, Cornyn, and RNC Chairman Reince Preibus.

We must vote out all Senators and House Representatives who are members of the socialist or communist parties (over 70).

We must continue to replace Rinos with constitutional conservatives.

We must retain the house and take the senate in 2014.

Back to Indianola. Wayne points out that many commentators are using what Governor Palin said in Indianola Iowa without giving her credit, one instance was recently when Fox talking heads mentioned lowering the corporate tax rate so business would come back to the states with all their money being saved overseas. Sarah said in on September 3rd: lower it to ZERO and let business survive on its own, without any bailouts!

Glenn Briggs: Boehner is of the permanent political class that Sarah warned us of at Indianola. His sole objective is power and longevity- way down on his considerations is “for the public good”. DC is so full of theses types that it’s bewildering to the average Conservative American – very few of our elected representatives HAVE ANY principles whatever, let alone Conservative principles, and even some who profess Conservative principles often deviate from them in their voting records. WHY? NO MORAL AND ETHICAL LEADERSHIP!!! Oh, how we need Sarah Palin.

NO SHE WILL NOT BE SENATOR!

Sarah Palin was born to be president. She has the natural abilities, charisma and executive experience that makes her overqualified to just legislate as a Senator. She made possible a Republican majority in the House in 2010. She endorsed over 100 nationwide candidates including five Governors and two States’ Attorneys General ALL serving now (GPJ) http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/endorsement-power-sarah-palin-75-success-karl-rove-100s-of-millions-spent-only-1-success/

That is how powerful she is even without a title. Real leaders inspire other leaders to step forward and be courageous. She has done that. She leads by example, serving not self-serving. Why would the pundits in DC like Bill Kristol and the RINOS in the establishment, not to mention Obama’s lame Media push the “Senator” pitch? They do it, because they are wishful thinking that by all this talk she will go away. She (We) will not.

Laura Ingraham said something I agreed with about Amnesty the other day. I am vehemently against it, so I let her know. Unrelated, she tweets this next: “Yes indeed, but I’m talking those in elected office. @PowerYachts: Saw Palin last summer and she was great, inspirational, funny…” (but…) but what Laura? That is the subtle dig that RINOS master. Anyone who says they love Sarah Palin “but“, does not love her. I gave several, but one of my replies was: You don’t have to love her to respect what she has done. This is the problem. The GOP has something called SPB Sarah Palin blindness; better yet, let’s transpose the acronym for Palin Derangement Syndrome and call it SPD Sarah Palin Denial.* They don’t see or appreciate her greatness, to their discredit and our loss. How can anyone question whether she is running for President or not?

There is no way Sarah Palin is not running!

Sarah Palin’s record is impressive and clean. She is as smart as can be. She elicits rage from the left. Her views are all in plain sight on her wall. She speaks the truth to power. Contrast that to Obama’s incompetence, lack of transparency and incorrect stance on most issues. Like any commie he agitates the masses with class envy and racism, blaming all our problems on the imaginary rich white man which he has become. What has he done to improve race relations? Nothing. He’s helped worsen them. What has he done to improve the economy? Nothing. There’s never been more poverty or unemployment. What has he done to improve our national security? Nothing.

We have never been more disrespected or mocked. He has worsened things for us abroad, in fact. Syria is the most recent example. Who has been right about it all along? Not Obama, but Sarah who said we should not be fighting wars where we do not know who are enemies are. She was right in questioning Obama’s sympathies, he who is clearly helping to spread and grow a ”religion” he admires more than ours. There is no doubt she has the moral and the political clarity that contrast Obama’s failures and moral vacancy. If patriotism is love of country, then our president should be ashamed of himself for hating and being ashamed of America and what it stands for.

I happen to like the truth. I like honesty. I like families who practice what they preach. I like someone whose record is accompanied by the nurturing of her family and God. I love being part of a movement that is about Love rather than hate. Have you noticed how she has been preparing her family I think by making us more acquainted with them every day? It’s masterfully done, but genuine. It comes natural to her. And voters who still don’t see real goodness or appreciate what makes this country great, are the reason why Obama is president.

We have so much work to do. Not one of us is indispensable, but each one of us contributes to the cause. Don’t shy away after giving one opinion. Find your strength and pitch in. This was Sarah speaking to Greta about Begich on August 23rd: ”There are thousands of good Alaskans with a servants heart with the ability and the desire to serve we-the-people. As of this date, I am not planning to run for U.S. Senate. But never say never.”

That’s what I love about her. She never says never, and that means Hope for us. She never burns bridges, and that is an example for us to follow. She says it because it’s the truth, not because she’s running for Senator. She is instead building a house with Senators and Representatives gradually (brick by brick, like Wayne says) and that is what we have to do: support the coalition she is building. Her presidency will come, but her way.

Sarah Palin has earned the respect and the grassroots following necessary to build the Senate majority and keep the House majority again, the one BOEHNER has abysmally led since 2010. I cannot understand how anyone doesn’t see, (especially the chronically jealous establishment failures) after all that has happened, WHO is on our side. America has not had enough yet, it seems. Are you listening, GOP?

My apologies for not crediting who the first image is courtesy of.

I don’t think we have a year.

Sarah, if you are going to run then say it now and give us all something to hope for, hang our hats on, be joyous about. You and Cruz, or, maybe even, wait for it, Levin?

McCain and all his buds probably thought they had a VP candidate who would just do everything she was told.

Who da thunk that she would turn out to have a brain and actually be a better leader than all of them.

I remember hubby, at the time (2008), pointing out that out of all of the candidates, Sarah Palin was the only candidate with executive experience -— IOWs, the only candidate who had actually run something (a state).

Dear Isabel Matos,

HEAR HEAR! OUTSTANDING!

Sarah Palin's voice and thoughts may be plagiarized, but she doesn't care about receiving "credit". Just as long as the word and the truth get circulated.

This stateswoman remains one of the very few trusted, credible, untainted public figures in or out of politics. She is THE anti-elitist, and a master communicator -- which make her a target of envious, intellectual snobs of both parties. She's taken their best shot, and STILL they can't diminish her cred, nor dislodge her from the public square. She is...Reaganesque.

She is more a leader without a political office than our so-called “leaders” who currently hold office.

I don’t believe she will seek office. She doesn’t need to, and has more influence from outside than she ever would inside.

But if she did team up with Rand or Cruz, it would electrify this race like nothing else.

I will say this: if GOP passes amnesty, if they don’t overthrow obamacare, if they sign on to a Syrian intervention, there is no further need for a GOP. I’ll be looking to see where people like Palin, Rand and Cruz wind up. Because that’s my party.

McCain's puppetmeisters. THE Puppetmeisters. The Vichy-RNC.

It's a good thing she's agree to (or been threatened) to be nice to McQueeg. She could just as easily clean his clock as Zero's.

Sly — you are so right. GOPe fully expected her to just shut up and go away, once they’d gotten what they wanted from her. After all, that’s what conservatives are supposed to do, right? It’s been a pleasure to see them bested in that regard.

marron — I fully agree with your statements. I’ll add that I think all those issues (amnesty, deathcare, etc) are a done-deal and therefore the GOP is gasping its last breath as far as I’m concerned. There will be plenty of folks who will continue to gnash their teeth over the suggestion of a 3rd party, but it will fall on deaf ears. While I don’t expect much to come of it in my lifetime, we must start somewhere for those who come after us.

We are doomed—Obama wants and needs to be a war time president —He needs the power to cover up his many crimes and mis-steps. Our only hope—retake the Senate—and as Obama and Holder will rig the elections its possible we will lose the House too—nanci will rule forever—and let Obama go 3rd Term.

My hope is Sarah/Cruz in 2016. (If my first VP favorite, Allen West, can somehow walk back that insane ‘aye’ vote of his for the Nazi Germany style anti-American indefinite detention NDAA thing I’d like to see him back on instead of Cruz). I do believe, if we even make it to the next Prezzy. election run up, Sarah is our last hope.

Yup. This was a tactical error on a part of the Vichy-GOP and Elites. They grossly underestimated Palin, having NO idea she'd not only survived the bi-partisan onslaught of the media and treachery of RNC vampires, but take the offensive once she was no longer in office.

Palin continues to be a thorn in Statists' sides as she effectively launches bruising salvos and biting commentary.

I have this gut feeling she will only run if there isn't another fine conservative who steps up to the plate. I'm thinking that one conservative will be Cruz and she will back off. I would be very surprised if she ran against him, she knows full well that a RINO would walk through the split vote.

If he runs and wins, I'm guaranteeing she will be in the cabinet as Secretary of energy when he wins. I'd love to see Alan West in the cabinet as well. He would make a dynamite Secretary of State.

As to his VP pick, that will be tricky and is any ones guess.

Oh well, enough fantasizing and dreaming, let's gum up Bambi's entire agenda for now, get through 2014 in some kind of new historic anti-rat sweep, then concentrate on 2016.

It's going that way. The people in power in both political parties care nothing about what's good for the country or what's good for us citizens. It's all about keeping things in place.

These three could maybe put together something different.

Agreed, but her incredible knowlege of energy production and distribution points to the dept of energy. Secretary of Commerce would be a second great place.

Of course, she might make a deal for the VP to quit, then she could be Veep, plus be Sec of Energy and Commerce at the same time as well!

I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I think whatever conservative wins the GOP nomination, for instance Cruz or Palin, he/she's gonna get a respectable (if he can find one, ha, ha) member of the GOPE type for veep in order to unite the party and be able to win.

Now, now ladies, stop throwing things at your computer.....

Well remember y’all asked for comments.

Here’s how I see things. We’ll know in the next week or two whether our beloved uniparty is going to take action to start WWIII. Assuming our benevolent overlords haven’t gotten us burnt to a crisp by 2014 let alone 2016, I think that Sarah becoming President would be an outside bet at best. Ted Cruz has a better chance in my view but not a particularly good one. Neither will be the gop nominee; that will go to someone like jabba the christie.

Where I see any chance at all for either candidate is if they cast aside the farce of the gop/’rat uniparty and get a second party going. People within conservative circles talk about the gop label being “damaged.” They’re incorrect: it’s radioactive. And if the gop decides to do what I think they’ll do and buy off on an enormously unpopular war, then you can kiss off the gop faction for the foreseeable future. But admittedly that would leave a huge opportunity for a second party to emerge. And there would be the opportunity for Sarah or Cruz to pursue. I question whether either would seize that opportunity, and if they did they would have counter other second party wannabes like the Libertarians. Or perhaps be their nominee.

Lots of “ifs” there FRiends. Not saying I don’t want it: Lord knows I’d be tickled 15 shades of pink. And I’m not saying it couldn’t happen...Teddy Roosevelt gave it a good effort in 1912...just not seeing it as likely.

You’ll see it :)

Ahhhh! Now I understand.

But, I don’t understand why he would say something like that.

I am not a fan of homosexual marriage — as this whole homosexual issue plays out, perhaps some folks will change their minds?

“I’ll be looking to see where people like Palin, Rand and Cruz wind up. Because that’s my party.”

Yep. :)

"We are doomed—Obama wants and needs to be a war time president —He needs the power to cover up his many crimes and mis-steps."

It is called "Wag the Dog" based on a movie with the same name, released during the Clinton Administration. When the Lewinsky scandal broke, Clinton played Wag the Dog by the bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan by the Clinton Administration. It was done to distract attention from Clinton's scandalous sexual proclivities which were front page news for weeks.

There's Jonah Goldberg's column published today (9/4) that I think hits the nail on the head about the GOP (and just as true for conservatives) needing "storytellers" who can present the positions in a way that is accessible to the large portion of the public that really doesn't pay attention to politics.

I can't think of a better storyteller out there right now than Sarah Palin.
