Skip to comments.Why I'm reversing course on John McCain

Governor Sarah Palin! Or, actually, what she signifies.
We've often stated on FR that if the Republicans would only run true conservatives then we'd win more elections. We'd keep the White House, build conservative majorities in congress, replace liberal activist judges with original intent constitutionalists, and eventually overturn Roe v Wade and begin rolling back some of the damage inflicted upon our beloved republic by the socialists and liberals.
John McCain's bold choice of the unabashed pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, small government, strong defense, fiscal conservative, Sarah Palin, signifies a return to conservatism within the Republican Party.
And the fact that Republicans and conservatives of every stripe, including the Christian right are flocking to her side and that the conservative grassroots has been re-energized literally overnight is proof that when offered the choice of truly conservative candidates, conservatives and Republicans will react accordingly.
Even though I've stated in the past that I would not vote for McCain, I will be supporting this ticket. Governor Palin is a God-fearing, kick butt conservative and I'd much rather have her advising and standing in the wings for the presidency than Joe Biden. I'll definitely pull the lever for her. And I'll do all I possibly can to keep the America-hating Marxist Barack Hussein Obama out of the White House.
Do it for Life. Do it for Liberty. Do it for our troops. Do it for America!
I am pre-voting for Palin 2012....
Palin is my kinda girl! I only pray that my daughters will grow up just like her.
I’m still not convinced, but it looks like my vote, or rather the lack of it, won’t matter here in GA.
You parallel my thoughts almost exactly, Jim, I think Sarah Palin just cost Chuck Baldwin and (Barr) millions of votes..of which I was one considering it..but now am enthousiastically ON BOARD McCain/Palin! (BOY THIS ELECTION SEASON HAS PRODUCED STRANGE BEDFELLOWS/LOYALTIES OF MYSELF AT TIMES..).
First it was NO REPUBLICAN (During the Primary, then Tancredo, then Thompson, then Huckabee, then Paul)..then when we knew it was McCain..I WAS ACTUALLY PULLING FOR A CLINTON!)..then I was for Baldwin (C), then I was back on board with McCain (when it was finally known that Hillary C. was defeated..and the 100X bad BHO was the Democratic nominee, though begrudgingly)..and now WOW I AM 100% For Palin..almost feels like Reagan/Thatcher all over again!
HOPE YOU’RE HOME and posting!
Health and wholeness to you.
Prayers and hugs.
When will the new servers be online?
Exactly! I was a listless GOPer but now...WOW !! I’m full of energy and ready to work.
I was so sorry to hear of your recent health problems. But it is so good to see that you have caught the Palin excitment too!
My sentiments exactly Jim! I’ll vote for the ticket without having to hold my nose.
Sarah is the one who has made all this possible; we need to take this opportunity and make the most of it!!
Oh my word, wonder what Hussein was doing to get that white stuff around his eyes?
Glad to have you back. Hope you're feeling better.
Doesn't MeCain just piss you off by adamantly claiming he'll put liberals in key cabinet positions! ...good grief man!
PS. Do you think the RNC has learned anything by watching the overwhelming support of Gov. Palin's nomination?
Same here, Jim. I’ll vote gladly for this ticket.
Hey, remember where we all were, a year ago? Grimly anticipating the nominations of Rudy and Hillary? Who thought we’d be this fortunate, to have a young and charismatic conservative on the ticket? I sure didn’t!
I have met the Governor on several occasions and believe me, she is the real deal!
I'll be proudly pulling the lever for McCain/Palin.
I may not need to take these to the voting booth after all..............
Energized Base Bump!
Glad to see you support the ticket Jim. I am lukewarm on McCain as well, but he is fantastic compared to the alternative, and Gov. Palin is one of our future stars...
I hope that they can kick-butt in DC. Herculean task ahead, cleaning out the DC Stables...
Sarah Palin is exactly what this country needs. God bless her, and you, too, Jim!
BTW, Thanks for not banning all of us McCain boosters over the last year or so. I know it has been tough...
I'm still not voting for him. But I am going to vote for her. (unfortunately, in my state, that won't get them very far).
