“Nominating anyone other than Sarah Palin is akin to supporting the status quo. I like Pence but he would not be effective as president.”
I hate personal attacks,so please forgive me, but this is by far the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. Can you name me one position of Sarah Palin’s that is actually conservative? more specifically, can you name one position of Sarah Palin’s that is to the right of the typical GOP talking points?
I’ll try and explain my statement to you in a way you might better understand. What I mean by “the status quo” is the inside-the-beltway elites. As good a conservative as Pence is, he is also tainted by serving in that cesspool. I’ve come to realize that those good ol’ boys are more interested in preserving their power than reforming the way government works. The place is so damned corrupt that an outside leader is needed to begin the arduous task of cleaning up the town.
Sarah Palin has a proven track record of rooting out corruption. She also went through the budgets of Alaska as governor and Wasilla as mayor,line by line, trimming unnecessary spending as much as possible. She adamantly supports energy exploration, a strong defense, support for Israel, cutting spending and taxes and reducing regulations on business. She has also taken everything the left has thrown at her while, at the same time, getting very little support from elected Republicans, including Pence. As to the elected Republicans not publicly supporting her, my question is why? Lack of courage? Afraid of the media? Or is it for the same reasons as the left, that they feel she is a threat to their base of power?
Now, as for Pence, he is a great conservative congressman, imo. If he truly wants to make a difference, he would stay in the congress and fight for needed reforms. Or he could, as some want him to do, run for governor of Indiana. He needs to prove he has administrative skills before he is ready for the presidency. Just being a conservative and holding conservative views isn’t enough.
BTW, typical GOP talking points have proven to be just that, merely talking points. If it weren’t for the tea party movement, there wouldn’t be anything accomplished and I need to yet see if the current members of congress have learned the lessons of the last election. The days of just saying what people want to hear to be elected and then discarded are over. Either produce or you’re fired!
Agreed Palin is not more conservative than Pence.
