Posted on 05/31/2014 5:48:51 AM PDT by Hojczyk
ELLISVILLE, Mississippi With only three days until the polls open for the GOP Senate primary here and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at his side, State Sen. Chris McDaniel vowed to fight President Barack Obama alongside Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) in front of a raucous audience of thousands.
Americans, McDaniel said, have fallen for a great delusion that only government can solve all of the nation's problems.
It is not the place of government to solve your problems, McDaniel said. It is the place of strong, self-reliant, self-governing individuals to solve your own problemsyour church from time to time and your community from time to timebut not that government a thousand miles away. And every time we surrender our liberty, that government grows and expands more. More of your money. More of your freedoms. And theres a price we pay for that.
Noting that he grew up hanging out in the auditorium holding the event, his father was a professor at Jones County Junior College, where the venue was, McDaniel recalled his introduction to politics.
I became a Republican when I was 13 years old, not because I knew anything about policy or philosophy or law, McDaniel. But I knew there was this manthis actor from California. He would look directly at that TV and it felt like he was speaking to me. My father called me into the room and he said, son, youve got to see this. We watched Ronald Reagan talk about things that intuitively made sense to me. He talked about liberty. He talked about limited government. He talked about constitutionalism. He talked about balanced budgets. He talked about traditional family values.

I don’t know what “STAN D”ing is, but I’m on board. ;)
The moderator can remove the space and correct it!
I get to "touch the screen" by his name on Tuesday - primary day in MS.
I can’t understand why someone wouldn’t want to vote for Cochran in the Republican primary. After all, he’s a guy who doesn’t live in the state, brings home lots of free stuff at taxpayer expense, cohabitates with a woman not his wife, helps her host Democrat fund raisers, takes his live in executive assistant on world tours at taxpayer expense, and parks his real wife in a nursing home in a place he seldom visits. You know, a true Democrat.
Did I miss anything?
Shouldn’t the headline be “Palin at McDaniel rally”?
Or is Palin running for office?
Chris McDaniel is awesome! It will be the biggest tragedy of the 2014 Election Year if those 4 idiots who have been arrested for taking the Nursing Home picture cause Chris to lose this Election. A total tragedy.
WOW! I read the entire speech. A copy of that speech needs to reach the hands of every GOP voter in Mississippi before Tuesday. I’m calling Chris McDaniel’s Campaign Office (601-283-2156) and suggest it.
Good point! Celebrity leads.
Nope; you covered it all. But, HOW can we get this info into the hands of the “low-information” voter who will vote for Cochran because of name I.D. or the Nursing Home Scandal. If we can get facts like this into the hands of the voters... CHRIS WILL WIN THIS THING. We’ve got 3 days to do it.
It takes Mississippians going door to door, making phone calls, and standing on street corners, carrying the McDaniel message.
Shouldn't that read "Sarah Palin at a Chris McDaniel Rally"? Who's running for office?
The room is not spinning, hopefully we can do so again.
