I would hope that any candidate we get will wipe the floor with the boy marxist. The bigger question is how do we restore this nation from the path that not only Obama, but every President since FDR (except Reagan) has steered us on. We are heading for catastrophe. It is not enough to oppose or repeal ObamaCare. We have to re-assert capitalism. We have to re-assert our sovereignty. We have to drastically slash taxes, we will have to contain china’s & Russia’s military ambitions, we will have to cut out entire swaths of the federal government, we have to get rid of 20 million illegal aliens doing jobs Americans “won’t do” - like roofing, construction, janitorial, culinary, assembly, meat packing, hotels, etc. We have to pay off the debt. We have to drastically restructure Medicare and privatize SS. We have to re-establish the primacy of the 10th amendment. We have to re-invigorate our manufacturing base, and like Reagan did, use trade & tariffs to our advantage.

This is a tall order for anyone. No one will accomplish all of this. But someone must be willing and ABLE to convince the population that this must be done. The RINOs won’t even try and even if they tried initially, they’d end up falling back on their politically correct, “please like me” tendencies. Maybe Palin is the one, but she’ll need to convince me of a seismic shift in her thinking on a number of issues.

Wow...excellent summation of what we need to do for 2012 and beyond.

Not sure if Palin or Pence is that person.....but I do know that Gingrich, Romney, Huckabee, and some of the others will be more of the same like Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, etc.

Hopefully when the “Palin shot the Congresswoman and killed the judge” nuttiness stops....we can get back to an honest discussion of where Palin, Pence, and others stand on the issues.....the real issues like National Security/Border Security...Deporting Illegal Aliens....rebuilding our economy....lowering taxes....those are the real issues
