SARAH PALIN: If You Love Freedom, Thank a Vet! .
SARAH PALIN'S FACEBOOK ^ | NOVEMBER 11, 2011 | SARAH PALIN

Posted on 11/11/2011 11:46:21 AM PST by onyx





by Sarah Palin on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 11:54am



I proudly display a bumper sticker that proclaims “If you love your freedom, thank a vet!” It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 that the armistice between Germany and the Allied nations was formed. A year later the White House commemorated the day as one to be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.” Years later 11-11 was officially declared Veterans Day.



We are thankful for this day being set aside to remember our vets, and many of us are overwhelmed with pride and respect for those we honor today. America's men and women in uniform selflessly sacrificed – some giving all – to protect the freedom and opportunities we enjoy today. In honor of everything our veterans have given, I implore Americans to remember them and thank them. And I ask that as a nation we not squander what they have fought to protect: American Exceptionalism that was based on free men and free markets.



May God bless, protect, and heal the hurts of America's finest. God bless our veterans.

Sarah is 100% American!

Don't worry Mesta, If Sarah is needed (like the Whigs blow it and nominate Romney) than we will not have seen the last of her.

If she is not, than America must be in good hands and she can continue to raise her family.

Can’t help but wonder if the situation with those now running isn’t God’s way of calling her to serve.

Thank you, Sarah.
I’m a vet. If you really want to thank the vets, then reconsider and announce your candidacy.
Right now the GOP is in dire need of an acceptable candidate, and there are none.

I am actually displeased with her speech. I cannot believe it.

Sarah Palin did not thank the Corpse Men.

Thank you from my heart for your service to our country, and thank you again for your support of Sarah Palin.

With the Grace of God, perhaps He will lead her to change her mind.

Thanks for the ping, Dear Onyx!

Sarah Palin certainly has her heart and mind in the right place about veterans and our freedom!

Now if only we could get her feet on the campaign trail... *sigh!*

"Reminder: She will be on Bret Baier's special tonight on Fox News at 10:00PM Eastern/ 9:00PM Central."

-"If she was still a candidate, this message would have been heard around the country and the world...."

Problem is... she was never a "candidate", which is the disappointing part.

Heck, if Newt (who had an entire staff quit on him), and Cain (who's never won a political election in his life), can be in the 'running' now, it's a real damn shame that the best one out there has decided to not engage in the fight to save this country. I say this as a pure out and out Palin supporter.

At the same time, there are too many Palin "supporters", who - because of what she's gone through these past three years, with all the trashing of her name and good intentions to save this country, and deep love and desire to support her and see her run for President, have raised her to an almost 'godly' and 'saintly' status, where Sarah Palin just cannot do any wrong or make any bad decisions - and many of these same people actually say that to ask Palin to "reconsider" is an "insult" and a "disrespect" to her Oct 5th decision. It's just mind-boggling.

Here's to hoping that Sarah Palin "reconsiders"!
