Governor Palinís Response to the SOTU
Conservatives4Palin ^ | 1-29-14 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 01/29/2014 9:39:56 AM PST by palin45potus

Governor Palin via Facebook: If you skipped huddling around the TV last night for the State of the Union address because you’ve heard it all before, plus you were just busy with life, well… so did I. Putting the real world on hold to watch the fantasy declaration of “utopia’s-on-it’s-way” just isn’t efficient. My truck radio was tuned in though. And driving kids to and from ball games with me negotiating control of the dial allowed me hear what I’d forebodingly anticipated. Later, reading the President’s remarks on my cell phone made sitting on sticky steel bleachers (that exacerbate parents’ sore backs) that much more uncomfortable. It was all confirmation that we HAVE heard it all before – how more government is supposedly the answer. But the extreme hubris and naïveté emanated from that speech was something new and alarming. Ronald Reagan said the nine most frightening words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Well last night’s promise to grow even more unaffordable, unsustainable bureaucracy confirms we need rescuing from government like never before. Consider all the “help” a bloated bankrupt federal government has given us… In an attempt to “fix” our health care system, government has taken away our health insurance and forced us to buy worse plans we don’t want and can’t afford. To “stimulate” the economy, government blew a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus scheme that sunk us deeper into such a pile of debt that our great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off. And our government still wants to blow more money we don’t have on “investments” that will incur more deficits year after year. To “lead” us to energy independence, government throws billions at bankrupt boondoggle green energy gimmicks that conveniently reward campaign donors. Meanwhile, the president stymies development of conventional resources that we actually use and he kills a pipeline that’s guaranteed to provide jobs and reliable energy. To “create” jobs, government has created more burdensome regulations and requirements and sat back to watch as a record number of Americans simply quit the workforce and gave up trying to find jobs that government can never create. Speaking of which, while claiming to be concerned with job creation for American workers, our government is trying to ram through amnesty, which will result in a flood of foreign workers competing with Americans for the few jobs there are. These examples prove that growing government isn’t the answer; rather it’s the problem. It’s tempting to tune out rhetoric like last night’s naive promises that this time will be different, but we must not ignore it! Between the hubris of an executive branch governing by fiat, to the arrogance of believing it can spy on citizens’ communications and unleash the IRS to harass people who happen to disagree with the president, it’s now more important than ever for us to press in and pay attention. Why? Because we’re obviously on a dangerous path, but “We the People” don’t have to be “We the Sheeple” and just get shepherded towards a fundamental transformation that’s against America’s will. There’s another way! This nation can shine again with the elbow grease we as individuals can provide! But we mustn’t let a statist-leaning government dull our dedicated efforts. So pay attention. Get involved. Understand the way words are manipulated by politicians who practice to deceive, so that we can DO something about it. For instance, proving he’s immune to irony, the president used the phrase “fairness and equality under the law” at the end of last night’s address. This is the same president who has been arbitrarily amending his signature legislation Obamacare practically every other day to give breaks to his cronies and leave the rest of us without “connections” out in the cold. I guess some of us are less fair and equal under Obama’s laws. The last thing we need right now is more “help” from big government. In this mid-term year, we need to send new leadership to D.C. to get government back on our side and off our aching backs. Thankfully, November is just around the corner. - Sarah Palin

She didn’t include any mention of McCain and what a great guy he is. What’s up?

I’ll match anything Sarah writes with ANYTHING the Obamadork writes. She’ll slice, dice, chop, and stew quota baby boy.

And, for the libs seething at my blasphemy...that’s anything the dork has actually written. Given his shoddy record of lying, hidden records, and ghost-written made up biographies, methinks the idiot has written virtually nothing of any consequence.

Truth could never been said better. Sarah Palin was and will always be one of the most honest and wise civil servant we have ever had. She is on par with the Regans of the world. I admire this woman as the standard our GOP should model themselves. God blessed this woman.

Could it be that Sarah is finally stepping out of the gloomy shadow of her onetime benefactor?
It has been quite obvious that she never belonged there in the first place, and also that she didn't really deserve top be there.
Feel secure that she will again work her azz off for conservative candidates, and hopefully will announce her intentions for 2016.
I have a collection of buttons, posters and other election paraphernalia from both 2008 and 2012 that I would love to recycle....

Run, Sarah, Run.

Thank you Sarah for the comments.

Americans have been so slow to see the lies, ill intent and the take down of America. When we were told Obama intended to fundamentally change America. He meant it.
The first thing he did was go see Chavez to ask how he did what he did in the take over of Venezuela.

Only it is not for the good of America ... rather for the decline and destruction of the greatest nation on earth.

Let us turn to God in repentance for our blindness.

God bless and help America.
