Governor Palin: D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.
Conservatives4Palin ^ | 130226 | Sarah Palin/Mary Beth House

D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.

Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or “more revenue” as he likes to call it. The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.

If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.

If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then let’s stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

It is so nice to see someone in the spot light that “GETS IT”.

I pray that she will do more than be in the spot light. I know that she has supported some strong conservatives (and some not so strong), but we need people like her in power.

Once the government has disarmed us there will be nothing they won’t do and that is precisely why they want to eventually ban guns.

It wasn’t that long ago that our own government rounded up Japanese citizens and put them in camps - anyone who thinks they won’t do the same to dissenters is living in fantasyland.

Zer0 has long ago planned to do nothing when the sequestration deal came up. That’s why the vacations, golf games and non communications with the Republicans. He has planned to do the same political game that Clinton played during the great government shutdown of 1995-96. With the Senate in Democrat control, Zer0 thinks that by doing nothing, he will play the Republicans into losing their control of Congress by whipping up public sentiment against them. All he has to do is trot out a boy scout troop unable to get into Yellowstone because of the sequester. All he has to do is delay some Social Security checks and the elderly voters will be ready to fry some Republicans.

This is not going to go well.

Never allow the gov. to disarm you my fellow American! We will stand with you, one battle at a time.

Once this Gov. begins to disarm the American people, the dogs of war will be released, since the gov. will be so far out of control, the only option the American people will have left to them is to fight and return their constitutional gov. to them.

God help us all! It won't be pretty my dear friend!

Its good to hear from Sarah with a frank and honest message.

I am watching Sarah Palin, Rand Paul and others to see what they say and especially what they do in the months ahead.

Its time for dramatic and meaningful action to cut spending and balance the budget. A line must be drawn in the sand that demands an immediate and authentic balanced budget.

BALANCED BUDGET NOW..........

If Palin chooses to support RINO’s like Lindsey Graham in 2014 its hard for me to see how she really wants those words she’s writing to translate into real action.

My experience with the government workers in the Mississippi Highway Patrol license and CCW permit facility in New Albany, Mississippi, confirms that if gun confiscation and civil unrest happens, these people will have no second thoughts about turning against the public.

Yeah, a real pain in the rear. It's embarrassing for the poster. My South Carolina pings usually post at least three times.

Maybe John can take a look at this. (Hint, hint :)

Palin bashing will not get it done nor will bashing those like her who love this country and would REALLY like to see it taken back.

Take a close look at our Canadian friends to the north. Like us, they were facing a difficult time with a strong liberal government but not so much any longer. How did that transition happen? As one of my Canadian friends stated, “A small, quiet rumbling in the west grew into a major storm as the “silent majority” turned into a monumental CONSERVATIVE effort.” (Sounds almost like the Tea Party).

It can be done here in the U.S. as well but not if we stay in so many different trenches and appose those with leadership skills like Palin and others like her. Staying focused, a leader will surface from amongst us and hopefully, we will prevail in taking our country back, like our friends to our north did.

Palin is telling it like it really is. She is intelligent enough to see through all of the “smoke and mirrors” our communist leader has thrown up to screen his ambition to become the king of America.

My God! Sarah come and save us.

That’s a good endorsement and lets hope the trend continues.

I’m Pro-Palin-read my tag, but its time to draw a line and I draw it at 90 percent plus of current Republican elected officials who I wouldn’t vote for ever again.

They are phony baloney fakes who blow conservative smoke period.

I will only vote for or support real conservatives in GOP primaries and if they lose to RINO’s, I will support third party conservative candidates in general elections.

And Cruz himself had nothing to do with it, of course.

He was just some half-wit wandering around mumbling to
himself when she touched him with her magic wand and
made him into the man we know today. Right?

Bears repeating:

“If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest,” Palin wrote in a Facebook message Tuesday.

Sarah right on as usual. Why are we not hearing this from others in D.C.?

‘Palin is telling it like it really is.’

Sarah Palin goes to the heart of the issue, as always.
But the failed Republican Party can do nothing but posture and preen. Sarah has no allies except for those she can help create.

True! His campaign even sent her a thank you note...

"We started out as underdogs in a long, competitive primary. But despite the odds being stacked against us, Governor Palin and SarahPAC showed daring leadership by endorsing my campaign," Cruz writes in the email. "The governor's support and your constant encouragement played a critical part in our triumph."

But, in Sarah's ever *humble* way, she took no credit, but gave all the glory to Tea Party Conservatives...saying Ted Cruz’s win was “a victory for tea party conservatives who just want to get our country back on the right track and defend our republic.”

May God continue to bless and keep Sarah!

Because most in DC are bought and paid for by special interest groups (a.k.a. Crony Capitalists).

IT MIGHT BE BECAUSE ... THE ONLY ONES RUNNING ARE OF THE RINO ILK. WHAT OTHER CHOICE DO WE HAVE?

WE DO WANT OUR VOTE TO GO IN THE DIRECTION WE SUPPORT. THE PROBLEM IS NO ONE STANDS FOR THE VITAL BASIC BASE, THAT TRUE CONSERVATIVES SEEK... except Sarah.

Sorry for the caps. I didn't notice.

Sarah is a breath of fresh air and I do not believe the negative press seeking to deatroy her. She is great and she has my vote if she seeks office.

Sarah Palin is brave, clear eyed, a true common sense conservative. We are all human and things can be twisted into knots.

Pray for Sarah and her family's well being. Lord we seek protection and safety for Sarah Palin and her family, in Jesus name, amen.

Which proves she knows what's coming more than our elected trash in Washington and has the courage to say it.
I think some may know it, but are afraid to speak it.........Cowards all until they prove different.

Well done!

Text color might be better white though.
It kind of offends the eye a bit as is.

Maybe black and bolder.

I don’t know, the text just seems to grate.
Work on that and get back to me. Cheers.

Think it really captures your essence hun-gun.

As far as your critique, I just consider the source it's coming from, desperately wanting for attention as it is, LOL!
