This should only encourage Sarah to keep doing what she is doing. The whole reason this country is in such a mess because of weak RINO’s that are as bad as the democraps. Keep going Sarah!!!

Hell, the GOP snubs all conservatives. Sure, they occasionally get on board with our opinions, but then either forget about us or downright ignore us until we are needed again.

Sorry, but I quit tolerating that abuse long ago.

She catalyzed the American conservative movement anew, when their previously anointed CINO (McCain) failed miserably in so doing... and where their current CINO du jour (Mittens) is pinwheeling and pratfalling, just as predictably.

They will never, ever, EVER forgive her for that.

A Conservative, small Government third party could make some headlines by inviting her to their convention.

I'm with you on that. What RINOs don't seem to realize is that the GOP will be dead meat without Sarah.

NOT SO! They know the one who will bow to them and those conservatives who wanted to be used for their gain. This election these 'so called' conservatives outed themselves. They were conservative for votes only.

Sarah Palin has not yet received an invitation to speak at or attend the Republican National Convention this August in Tampa, Newsweek reported.

Everybody is quoting the same questionable source. If true though it would be a hugh mistake. Do not underestimate the power of the Palin side.

For all concerns I hold the GOPe GUILTY of not supporting her after the last election and essentially doing nothing to help her in face of those numerous fraudulent ethics charges. The GOPe did nothign to help her and “effectively” forced her from the governor’s office by their deliberate inaction.

Under what official capacity would she be attending? She is not a candidate as she only flirted with being one, she is not a delegate, she is not a Governor as she quit that job, she is not an elected offical, she is not a spokesman. She is nothing but a commentator on FoxNews.

Excellent point. And I'm a Sarah Palin fan.

I was hoping Palin would run but it's way too late for that now.

and then nominate her to run! She is what we need and the GOP shunning her says a whole lot more about them than it does her. They are not on the people’s side. Out with them.

That is a good point. Is she allowed to speak at a political convention?

She has a contract with Fox News to do political commentary. Would this exclude her from having a speaking role at the convention?

I am just curious about the legality and ethical aspects of having a member of the media as a convention speaker.

If there's any good that can come of this, perhaps Mrs. Palin will recognize the civility she's shown the GOPe does not run both ways. For too long she has held her tongue and softened her stance out of respect for the party that brought her. She has not yet fully realized they only brought her to appease us, and not because they respected her conservative values. Her loyalty to the party is a misdirected bond the GOPe has used to reach out to the grass roots, and the GOPe respects us as little as they respect Mrs. Palin. Once she frees herself of that bond, she will no longer feel the need to support McCain and other RINOs for the sake of "party unity" (an excuse a number of our own FRiends use to support Romney right here, right now). And, when that happens, when we conservatives finally realize the extent of our trust ends with the extent of our values, we can finally unite and begin reformation from the grass roots up. It's past time for the Republican Party to go the way of the Whigs and new party rise from its ashes. I'm moving forward under the impression that party will be The Constitution Party. I'm confident Mrs. Palin would be welcome.

I’m going to write in her name when I vote, if I get the chance..........


There are 8 states that prohibit write in candidates for President. Texas isn’t one of them. But apparently the candidate must file an application based upon the following, but my guess is Palin won’t make that filing.

...

Sec. 192.036. WRITE-IN CANDIDATE. (a) With respect to
a write-in candidacy for the office of president of the
United States, this section supersedes Subchapter B, Chapter 146, to the extent of any conflict.

(b) A declaration of write-in candidacy for president must
satisfy the requirements prescribed by Section 192.032(b)
for an independent presidential candidate’s application for a place on the ballot, except that a petition is not
required.

(c) The certification for placement on the list of write-in
candidates must include the names of both the presidential
candidate and the vice-presidential candidate.

Acts 1985, 69th Leg., ch. 211, Sec. 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1986.

Remember who said New World Order first, W’s Dad. He also brought agenda 21 to our legislation.

So both sides are equally dispicable.

Imagine the melt-down the lsm would have over a constitution party with Sarah Palin as leader!

Remember 60k at the villages for a VP???
Remember Chambliss’s re-count in GA???

I personally know a long time RNC committee member and she isn’t worth a cup of warm spit (my husband’s comment). This country will be successful despite her. The very idea to snub Sarah infuriates me to my bones.
