I believe that Sarah is the best hope for our Nation. The convention “snub” may not be a bad thing. Only the Republicans would be watching her with objective eyes and minds. Nothing is lost.
Lately I believe that her absence at the convention will be a good thing. I no longer see Sarah Palin as a republican force, but as a tea party force. If the tea party stays a separate group and keeps operating outside of the GOP it will tend to be cleaner force for limited government.
What do you think?
The Tea Party, so far, has not sullied itself with the well known corruption and double dealing of the GOP.
That’s as it should be.
I think that whatever happens in the coming Presidential election, it will further (perhaps finally) define the status of the Tea Party and its leadership.
Palin cannot be unaware of this likelihood and is somewhat restraining her activities and comments in view of this possibility.
It’s all guesswork of course, but the stakes are high and Palin almost CANNOT lose.
It will be interesting to see those who held back, try to jump on the train while it gains steam.
You may be right. I really agree with Sarah’s outlook on life and government. Alaska, when I grew up, was a step child of America. We learned to stand on our own tow feet and do what was necessary for ourselves and our towns and villages. Independence is necessary to suceed in survival. That is the reason America was stronger before 2006, when the democrats took over the government and 2009 when obama was sworn to be our president. We need those on welfare to learn to stand and make a living for themselves rather than live on handouts from others. Even the most menial job is a step up from handouts and gives a person a feeling of independence.
Sarah's presence at the convention is - to me - a virtual certainty.
We shall see.
I think Sarah's supporters attending the convention will gather together - during TV time - to chant something like: "We want Sarah" or "Let Sarah speak"
You nailed it, Loud Mime. Democrat, Republican, both are big government chiselers, who can tell the difference? Go Tea Party! Go Sarah! Her time will come.
