I remember every Presidential election night going back to President Kennedy.

Oh want a night when Reagan was elected, how proud it was to be American.

Reagan went though all the same things Palin is going though, Can't win the General, Rinos didn't want him, Reagan, always behind in the polls, too divisive, the Bushes didn't like him, The democrates and Carter wanted him to win because he was the easiest to win!

I love when History repeats itself!!!!

Then Reagan was reelected by such a great landslide.

I was just as happy when we thought “W” won” in 2000. Fox called it around 1:30 pm I think. I hated Al Gore. I remember doing a jig with my mother (in her seventies), which she hadn't done ever before. We then started to freak out when they pulled the call back. Well the dems didn't get to steal it. Then 2004 was such a great night beating the corpse-man John Kerry and Bush was the first President in over 100 years not to lose any seat in the house and senate!

But on November 6th, 2012, when I hear “Ladies and Gentleman, President Elect Sarah Palin” !!!!!!

WOW. Oh want A Night!! It will be the Happiest I have ever been on a election night!/

REAGAN WAS GREAT BUT HIS SUPREM COURT PICKS, WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS PALIN'S WILL BE!!

(They say you have to visualize something before it happens.)

Will anyone else feel like this?

This thread is for Palin lovers only!

If a troll or Palin hater posts, please skip post and treat like it was CNN or MSNBC. Change the Station and just ignore.

I read her book last year and very much enjoyed it. I also watch her show and am hopeful she will run for office again someday soon. She is brilliant in keeping in the press so much lately.

Regarding the presidency though, I am troubled that she did not finish her full term as Governor. I understand the lawsuits etc and the fact she did complete 2 terms as mayor, but we really need a supreme leader with fortitude.

Being she is a TEA party fav coupled with the serious lack of good GOP candidates out there right now (who are willing to run), I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on the half-term. But would prefer she run for VP again in 2012. This would give her time to work on her presentation and polish what I believe is a political diamond in the rough.

I will be donating time and money to her campaign. A first for me, volunteering-for and contributing-to a political campaign. (other than just attending TEA Party rallies)

I'm already planning on taking the day after election day off. I figure I'll be up late celebrating, may wrap-around and celebrate well into the next day.

Frankie Valli » Oh, Want A Night Lyrics
Oh, want a night.
Late December back in '63.
Want a very special time for me,
'Cause I remember want a night.

Oh, want a night.
You know, I didn't even know her name,
But I was never gonna be the same.
Want a lady. Want a night.

Oh, I. I got a funny feeling when she walked
In the room and I,
As I recall it ended much too soon.

Oh, want a night,
Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me.
She was everything I dreamed she'd be.
Sweet surrender, want a night!

I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinnin' my head around and taking my body under.
Oh, want a night!

Oh, I. I got a funny feeling when she walked
In the room and I,
As I recall it ended much too soon.

Oh, want a night.
Why'd it take so long to see the light?
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right.
Want a lady, want a night!

I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinnin' my head around and taking my body under.
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)
Oh, want a night!
(Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do, do, do, do, do.)

Keep this in your back pocket:

[snip]
The brutal reality of America is that an aristocracy has developed in Washington against the wishes of the founders of this country. The Republican Party “insiders” are just as deep in the corruption and aristocratic thinking as the liberal elites. If anyone ever needed convincing of the deep disregard in which the aristocracy holds the serfs, the “insiders’” reaction to the Tea Party movement answered that question. In such an atmosphere of aristocratic minds, who else would be able to cut them down to size and remind them that they work for the people of America? Would Romney, with his own aristocratic flair and his own version of Obamacare, be willing to curtail the reach of the aristocrats into our lives? Would politician-turned-talk show host Huckabee be willing to rein in the very people who supported him in his political life? Sarah Palin is one of few politicians who have fearlessly taken on the establishment, both Democrat and Republican, with a consistent message about the enforcement of the constitution and the returning of government to the people.[snip]

Karl Rove and the RINOS know that Palin will take all the states McCain won last time.

The RINOS also know that Obama will not be able to win Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico and Iowa next time around.

That is why the RINO establishment are gay rage hysterical over Palin because all she needs to do is beat Obama in the 6 swing states that won’t vote for the bisexual muslim from Kenya next year.

She can do it and the RINOS are afraid. So are the allies of the bisexual Kenyan.

I like her very much. She’s my favorite candidate right now and right now she’s just as much a candidate as anyone else. No one has announced.

The only thing that scares me about her is the hate she inspires in lefties.

It’s beyond hate, it’s almost insanity. I know those types won’t vote for any Republican for president, especially a conservative, but would Palin hate give them more drive and incentive to vote if she ran.

I’m willing to take the chance because she is so good, but it does scare me a little.

I honestly think Sarah should be on the 2012 ticket - either as President or Vice President. She seems to be the only conservative who is active and not afraid of the liberal hate mongers. Give her a chance, and see if a knight in shining armour comes out of nowhere in the next two years.

I agree. I like Palin. I think she has the potential to be a great President.

Some suggest that she is an intellectual lightweight. I disagree. I read her book, and her track record is far stronger than is generally acknowledged. (By the way - please read "Going Rogue", by Palin.)

I think she has the ability to lead, the ability to understand people, to work with and through others - and that is an essential skill in a President. Notice that Reagan had that same quality.

Is Sarah a blue-blood? No, I suppose not. But she is a good, red-blooded American. I think she would make us - FReepers and Americans - very proud as a President.

Count me among her supporters.

On top of that you have a Tea Party movement that will only get larger and more influencial. Tea Partiers have no way back to uninformed and uncaring, once the light goes on and the fire starts...

...and the policies that sparked the movement are only going to get worse.

It's impossible for the Palin Protectorate NOT to be offended by any type of criticism of her. The PP take personal offense at anything other than abject adoration of Palin which is what worries me.

The 2012 election is all about 6 states. Everything else will be a distraction created by the LSM, the RINOS and the ‘RATS.

Virginia
Ohio
Florida
Colorado
New Mexico
Iowa

P.S. If you’re from Iowa, why the hell did they vote for the Kenyan last time?

"I understand the lawsuits etc and the fact she did complete 2 terms as mayor, but we really need a supreme leader with fortitude."

First, the USA doesn't have "supreme leaders", we have presidents.

Second, it took more fortitude to resign than to stay, as all of her close advisers were telling her it would be "political suicide". She resigned, and is currently proving that the resignation was nowhere near being "political suicide", but a stroke of genius. From sinking into an oblivion of debt, she is now worth millions, and is well on the way to being the first female president of the USA.

Third, she demonstrates fortitude virtually on a daily basis, carrying on despite the constant attacks from the liberal media, and the Country Club Republicans.

You want "fortitude"??? She has it, in spades.

This lady has more stones than some of our supposed “Men” in the conservative movement.

Good grief, the defeatist threads that I’m beginning to see more and more of on FR is not a good sign! No offense to you good ladies, but how is it that women like Sarah, and Michelle Bachman have more stones and enthusiasm for victory than our “Men?”

I swear, I’ve gone to a few threads today, where guys are posting the most pathetic, defeatist crap I’ve ever read!

But I digress. I will do whatever it takes to elect Sarah should she decide to run!

Lets also make solemn pledge: “We will not abandon her like many others have, due to lies that the media continually repeat about her! We will reject the Media and the Socialists, NOT Sarah!”

Lets also do whatever we can to help destroy the MSM. We have phone cameras, we have the power of the internet. Lets make it our goal to destroy the corrupt institution known as the Mainstream Media!

I don’t think you’d have to worry about her staying President if she wins. I’ve heard you can’t sue Presidents like you can sue a Governor. No one would be able to sue her, so, there’d be no worries there, tho if that DID happen to her as President, I doubt VERY MUCH if she’d resign. I KNOW she’d see it through!

Sarah is ready:


Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments that garnered her a whopping 92% approval rating:

Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship

*Governor Palin’s cornerstone accomplishment is AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palin’s governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and helps put us on the path to energy independence.

*Governor Palin’s administration opened up drilling for oil and natural gas at Pt. Thompson for the first time in decades.

*Governor Palin created the Alaska’s Petroleum Integrity Office to oversee all aspects of energy development and to make sure oilfield equipment was safe to operate and a Climate Change Subcabinet to comprehensively and honestly evaluate climate change.

Fiscal Conservatism

*Governor Palin reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration, requesting only earmarks that would benefit the country as a whole.

* Governor Palin reduced spending in her budget for Fiscal Year 2010 by more than one billion dollars from the previous governor’s Fiscal Year 2007 budget, a 9.5% real reduction in spending. Her FY2010 budget was $10.57 billion compared to Governor Murkowski’s FY2007 budget of nearly $11.7 billion. At the same time, she fulfilled her campaign promise to forward fund education, allowing districts greater flexibility and predictability in their planning.

*Governor Palin opposed much of the “stimulus”, wanting only to accept 55% of the money allocated to Alaska, specifically only dollars dedicated to infrastructure [projects. Although the Alaskan legislature ultimately overturned her veto, she stood firm on her commitment to help Alaska to become more self-sufficient while not adding to not add to the skyrocketing national debt.

* Governor Palin invested $5 billion in state savings.

Walking the Walk on Fiscal Responsibility

*Governor Palin sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor. She state it was an unnecessary financial burden on the state and was unable to land on many of the state’s landing strips.

* To cut costs that would be incurred by continuing to use a personal driver like previous governors, the governor drove herself from Wasilla to her office in Anchorage. She also dismissed the governor’s personal chef stationed in Juneau, Alaska’s capital.

* Governor Palin accepted less state per diem for herself and her family than her predecessors even though she had a larger family.

10th Amendment Advocacy/Promotion of State Constitution

*Showing that she is a strong supporter of the 10th amendment, Governor Palin advocated for the sovereignty of the state of Alaska.

*Governor Palin’s administration sued the federal government for placing the polar bear on the endangered species list, as this restriction affected energy development which would increase energy costs.

*A Constitutionalist, Governor Palin signed Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) bill into law. The Alaska constitution states that the Alaskan people own the oil and other resources. This law ensures that the “owners”, the people of Alaska, receive a clear and equitable share of oil profits.

National Defense/Veterans

*Governor Palin supported ground-based missile defense Ft Greely and other Alaskan Bases around to protect America from America’s enemies. She criticized the Obama administration for cuts that they made to this national defense system.

*Governor Palin, with Senators Murkowski and Begich, fought for retirement benefits from the federal government that were due to the Alaska Territorial Guard members who fought during World War II. These benefits were eventually rewarded to these veterans by the federal government.

* Governor Palin visited Alaskan soldiers in Kosovo and Kuwait.

Transparency/Anti-Corruption

*Governor Palin signed bipartisan ethics reform legislation into law that helped to hold both the legislative and executive branches accountable.

*Governor Palin put the state checkbook online, allowing all constituents to see how state money was being spent.

Health Care

*Governor Palin introduced health care transparency legislation which aimed at putting information in the hands of consumers about cost and quality of health care as a way to make health care consumer driven and accessible.

Sanctity and Dignity of All Life

* Governor Palin strongly supported both parental consent and parental notification legislation.

*Governor Palin increased educational funding for special needs’ children.

*Governor Palin implemented the Senior Benefits Program to support low income seniors.

Positions Held while Governor

* Chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.

*Vice Chair of the National Governors Association Natural Resource Committee.

* She served as chair of the Alaska Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s most valuable non-renewable resources: oil and gas. She was elected by her peers to serve as president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. In this role, she worked with local, state and federal officials to promote solutions to the needs of Alaska’s communities.

She exposed legal violations and conflicts of interest of Alaska Republican leaders, including the former state Attorney General and the State GOP Chairman (who was also an Oil & Gas Commissioner), who was doing work for the party on public time and supplying a lobbyist with a sensitive e-mail.
