Sarah Palin to GOP: Fight for the 'Forgotten Man' to 'Win Big in 2016'
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 20, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 07/20/2014 4:45:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Ronald Reagan won two presidential elections by fighting for the "Forgotten Man," and Sarah Palin said Republicans will only win presidential elections in the future if the party sticks up for the "little guy" and the "Forgotten Man" of all races and backgrounds.

Building upon the themes she has always fought for and distilled in a landmark speech in Indianola, Iowa in 2011 in which she denounced the bipartisan permanent political class and their brand of crony capitalism that extracts wealth from American workers, Palin told attendees at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday to think about what Sam Griffith posted on her Facebook page. She said he wrote: “I grew up poor. My mother was a die-hard FDR Democrat. When I turned eighteen the first president I voted for was Ronald Reagan. My mother was beside herself. When she asked me why I had voted for him, I told her I didn't plan on staying poor.”

"This is our message. This is what we stand for," Palin exclaimed. "You wanna win big in these midterms, you wanna win big in 2016? Listen to Sam. Stand for a guy who still wants to believe in the American dream."(continued)

Found at Ludwig von Mises Institute: The Forgotten Man, by William Graham Sumner.

The type and formula of most schemes of philanthropy or humanitarianism is this: A and B put their heads together to decide what C shall be made to do for D. The radical vice of all these schemes, from a sociological point of view, is that C is not allowed a voice in the matter, and his position, character, and interests, as well as the ultimate effects on society through C's interests, are entirely overlooked. I call C the Forgotten Man.

Also, you mean there are somethings more important than blind obedience to the Uniparty? And that Principles resonate with Good and Honest Americans?!

Sarah's Facebook. I provided the link.

She is a Public Figure so I don't think you need an account.

May I suggest teaming up with (I think they still exist) B.O.N.D.; Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny, headed up by Jesse Lee Peterson. This man's been around since the mid ‘90’s at least, and his motto is: “Uniting the races with truth instead of dividing them with lies”.

He and his organization would prove to be invaluable to you Sarah. Please have your people contact him. And as always...

Keep on talkin’ Sarah!

oh no, I didn't think you were.

That is why though I leave the raw URL link so people know it's a link, because otherwise will be greened out with the rest of the ping on your "New Comments to You" and they might miss it.

I wish I had a private line to Sarah to tell her That Michael.

However she told me in Person she knows about F.R. and I know for a fact she lurks here. So Hopefully she will see it. :)

My mother was a die-hard FDR Democrat. When I turned eighteen the first president I voted for was Ronald Reagan. My mother was beside herself. When she asked me why I had voted for him, I told her I didn’t plan on staying poor.”

I would like to mention that Reagan was also a die-hard FDR Democrat.

This final number from the Gold Diggers (1933) speaks of “The Forgotten Man” during the Great Depression 80 years ago even more so today:

Reagan always said he didn’t leave the Democrat party, the party left him.

If that’s what required, the GOP would much rather lose.

Don't forget "My Man Godfrey", where a rich brat debutante (Carole Lombard) looking for a "forgotten man" for a scavenger hunt comes upon William Powell at the city dump. Excellent movie, and available for free on YouTube and others.

Bingo. And the wonderful article on FR today explains this very well. I think the article is something like 10 reasons I’m not a lefty. Poor working white males are completely forgotten.

I attended a rally/town hall for a man challenging the establishment incumbent for the Florida 4th District, Ander Crenshaw. Crenshaw voted for the amnesty funding this past Friday and was also there for Ryan’s budget vote to cut retiree’s benefits.

That man is retired Navy Captain Ryman Shoaf. In addition to his common man, small government message, he also elaborated on “The Forgotten Man” as the basis for his campaign.

Please support him if you can.
