    I understand that Sarah Palin has some fans, and if she won in 2016 I would be thrilled. I just think it is delusional to believe she can win or even that she intends to run. It is not going to happen. She chose a different path and the rest of us have moved on.

    I have a better idea ... let's drop the rules of engagement, obliterate the enemy, pay for it with their oil and stop spying on our own?

    This politically correct war on terror is destroying our liberty and robbing us of our freedom. It is time to stop the maddness focused on installing Democracies in war zones. Kill the enemy and then come home.

    Let the fat man from NJ stay in NJ. I'll follow Paul over him any day of the week.

    What concerns me is that many Americans don’t seem to know that they’ve lost anything.

    As witnessed by the weak reaction to the NSA targeting of American citizens, all in the name of "safety". We are rapidly becoming a police state all the while people walking the streets thinking "that can never happen in America" as the story plays out in front of their eyes. Frightening times.

    Why does a leader of a protest movement have to be the final leader of the country? Rick Santelli kinda got the TEA Party rolling and I don't see his name on the list of next leaders of the USA.

    What is the point of a protest movement? Many of us protested the blue blood liberal from Mass by staying at home in November. How is that working out for us?

    If what you want is a leader for your protest, then by all means get Sarah. I am just suggesting that the other 95% of the country will be unmoved.

    You will find quite a wellspring of support for Palin, right here on FR.

    Over 120 million people voted in the last election. On a very Conservative site Sarah Palin may draw some support. but in the general population? Not so much I suspect.

    Sarah Palin won't run in 2016. Unlike 2012, there is a very strong line up of Conservative Governors, plus the likes of Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. Sarah Palin's opportunity has come and gone. You can't sit on the sidelines for 10-plus years, do nothing (media appearances aside) and expect to run a successful candidacy for President.

    Sorry to beat a dead horse but winning back the Presidency starts with living in reality. Sarah Palin had so much promise when she stepped on the stage back in 2008, but that promise has never materialized into the leader so many of us had hoped she would one day become.

    There will be awesome Conservative candidates to choose from in 2016, but Palin will not be among them.

    Fair enough ... I just don't get the undying support for a woman who quit being Governor and then passed on a run for the GOP nomination. There are many better, more qualified, candidates to lead the nation. There are Conservative Governors who did not quit and who can lead us out of this mess.

    Do I agree with Sarah Palin's politics? Yes. Do I think Sarah Palin is talented? Yes. Do I think she has a prayer at any type of serious run in 2016? No way.

    After her nonsense leading up to her September 2011 announcement, who would take her seriously?

    I currently put the odds of Palin running in 2016 at over 50%. And her support will be huge.

    Sarah Palin's opportunity was 2012, and she passed. No doubt she has a few rabid fans, but you are living in a fantasy world if you think she has the clout to start a serious 3rd party run.

    Just what does a modern revolution look like? We may one day see a collapse in our economy, civil unrest, riots, etc. I doubt we will ever see a sustainable / meaningful revolution. That is more likely individual fantasy, reality being it is not a winnable fight.

    Unless Barak Obama suddenly declares himself Emperor of the US we will not witness a Conservative uprising against the states, nor will we witness mass succession from the union.

    As for those looking to Sarah Palin ... put a fork in her. She has a few rabid supporters and little else in political clout.

    Bring back US manufacturing, and return American jobs.

    In a global economy, the only way to bring home jobs is to create an environmet where the cost to produce and deliver goods in the US is less than that to create and deliver goods overseas.

    If there is not a party currently supporting such policies, then Sarah Palin and other patriotic Americans should start one.

    Sarah Palin had her chance in 2012 to make a difference. She flirted with a run, teased her supporters, but in the end she passed. While she may have some die hard supporters, she no longer has the political clout she once ppocessed. A Sarah Palin 3rd party would likely draw less then 1%-2% support, if that.

    Buy American.

    Honestly, I have never understood what this means in a global economy. If I buy a Volkswagon built in Chattanooga rather then a GM built in Mexico am I buying American? In a global economy, how do you buy American? Based on final product assembly or a percentage of origin of components? At the end of the day I will always choose to spend my money on that which gives me the greatest value. Anything else just rings hollow to me.

    I am confused. Is this area close to the Mexican border? Are we concerned about border security or would we prefer no one be needlessly stopped and identity requested? I don’t see how one can be for greater border security (i.e. stop the illegals) and at the same time against someone being stopped and asked for id (i.e. police state). You can’t have it both ways, can you?

    I understand. Thanks for the perspective. By the way, this so-called pastor never had credibility with me. I am one of those right wing Bible believing born again types. I typically equate female pastor with liberal church which makes me think gay marriage and I get mad (what?!?!). Don't misunderstand, gay people don't make me angry (love the sinner hate the sin). I just don't like when churches pick and choose what parts of Scriptures they will follow. The Bible is not a book of instructional stories that need to evolve with the times. God's word is eternal.

    Just giving you a sense of my biases and how my mind works. Its a frightening thing. Hang in there and have a great day!!

    Alright. So what is your idea of a successful professional attitude for a minimum wage employee who hopes to improve their lot by moving up?

    Show up for work, work hard and keep a positive attitude. Quite frankly, if you want to improve your lot in life you'd be better served improving your education, trying to start your own business, etc.

    The First Amendment isn't where the waitress screwed up. She was unprofessional and anti-customer. If she was playing a waitress in the movie Waiting I'd understand her behavior. Plus, the purported pastor wasn't even her customer for goodness sakes. Waitstaff that'll share your comments on a check will also share your credit card numbers and other private information. I believe that the original waitress should be fired, as well, for giving this girl access to the check.

    I see a kid who made a poor decision and got fired. I don't see what the big deal is. There is no basis to suggest this person would share personal information. That is an extreme stretch.

    Honestly, I don't understand what the issue is. In my opinion your expectations are way to high for someone who is both very young and working as a waitress.

    As for the pastor, she is a leader and should be ashamed of herself. When this pastor made a decision to memorialize her foolishness in writing she opened herself up for exactly what she is going to receive as this goes viral: public scorn and shame.

    We are studying Timothy in Sunday School and the timing could not have been better. It is this woman who should be fearing for her job, assuming she has a "flock" left not to ashamed to call her their pastor.

    You and I aren't going to agree on this one. That's ok, I am sure we'll be back in sync in no time. Thanks for the post!!

    As I opined to another poster, it is the one in the professional setting who has to adhere to employer's guidelines. If the positions had been reversed, say the "Pastor" had been performing church services and was rude to the waitress above in her role as a parishioner, the shoe would most definitely have been on the other foot, and I would have supported any efforts she made to have the "Pastor" disciplined or dealt with in some fashion.

    You know I could really care less about the waitress. Whether or not she should have been fired is between her and Applebees. Your comments regarding professionalism are dead on, but why this made FreeRepublic is beyond me.

    Where we disagree is on the actions of the Pastor. When you are a leader in a church you are the face of God. It is not a job that you show up for on Sunday. Her witness is TERRIBLE and likely to add fuel to those who believe Christians are a bunch of hypocrites.

    So my point is this: on one hand we have a kid (young adult) who acts like a dope and gets fired (real shocker).

    On the other hand we have someone who is supposed to be a leader in the church who makes an absolute fool of herself over an Applebee policy, and in doing so gives a very poor witness to the world. It is my opinion that this woman has earned all the embarrassment and scorn coming her way.

    As for the people trying to make this some kind of liberal waitress thing, you have got to be kidding me.

    The pastor has a First Amendment right to say, write or do whatever she pleases as long as it isn't defamatory or traitorous.

    The pastor has accountability to God. This is a terrible witness, which is really supposed to be priority number one.

    The real problem here is an employee of the restaurant putting that check on the Internet. That she had to run to the furthest-left major newspaper in the world to complain about her termination tells me volumes.

    Excuse me but the same first amendment rights that protect the so-called pastor also protect the waitress. Or are you now claiming a right to privacy on restaurant checks?

    Whether or not the waitress is a liberal is besides the point. I believe you'd find the pastor is as well. I have followed many of your posts before and often find myself lock-step in agreement. I do respect you opinion, but in this instance I think you are dead wrong.

    What this pastor did was ignorant, especially given her expected role as a church leader. And rather then recognizing her rude behavior she doubles down and insists someone be fired. She is a church Leader for crying out loud. She represents Jesus Christ our Lord, you know the man who suffered and died for our sins. She looks petty and cheap and she has earned all the embarrassment and scorn coming her way.

    Unemployed liar. She totally intended to harass the customer and now she’s playing the poor little waitress victim. That is why she put the receipt on the internet for her entitled lefty thug pals to bully.

    I know snark and bullying are the fad for young leftists these days. It goes with the territory of lefty self righteous entitlement(unmerited, high self esteem), entitlement and class envy (jealously). It is the opposite of gratitude, creativity and excellent service to others. This is the worst attitude if you want a happy, successful life.

    You have got to be kidding me. You can not possibly believe this nonsense you posted.

    It was a female Pastor who enjoys getting 10% of the wages from her flock who thought it was wrong to give an 18% tip to a waitress for serving her LARGE table full of people.

    How do you know the tipper was a female pastor? If so then that really is pathetic. To call the restaurant and demand someone be fired? This person should be shamed and then some. Were I a member of whatever church I would find another church. This person does not represent my Lord.

    You don’t feel she violated his privacy and held the guest up to ridicule? How is that being service oriented?

    You don't feel the customer reacted in anger to the Applebee policy and in doing so embarrassed his/her church (not to mention God)? What kind of witness is that?

    Obama is neither a fool nor ignorant of US history. He understands the Constitution, and he knows exactly what he is doing. He is sounding reasonable to all those citizens who neither own a gun nor understand the Constitutional implications of his actions. This is all about public perception and image. Vilify the NRA and the "fringe", mold and leverage public opinion through the MSM and divide the GOP.

    Do not underestimate this man. He is cunning and he is very intelligent. He plans to win through deceit and division. We need to stand together. We need to spread the word. We need to work our tails off. Otherwise, he will win.

    Take your tin foil hat off, FRiend. Just because you believe everyone is out to get you, it doesn’t mean they are. That’s not to say there aren’t some on the left who aspire to violence, but you’ll have to prove your conspiracy theories with something more than a smattering of blog posts and one left-wing article at West Point. Many people on the right are already arming up and preparing in case the SHTF. Even if what you think is true (and that’s a big IF in my opinion), what else can people do that they aren’t already doing?

    I agree. I don't see Obama turning dictator anytime soon. His policies are destructive, no doubt, but I attribute that more to misguided views then purposeful destruction. In my opinion the bigger risk is one of pure economics. If the dollar implodes under the weight of massive deficits then all bets are off.

    I don't know. I think the House Republicans are playing this about right. Need to pick battles wisely, and there will be several over the next two years. A few initial thoughts:

    1) Focus on budget and spending into the summer means no talk about anything else, especially gun control

    2) Rubio has a reasonable immigration plan that is worth a look. I think we can find some middle ground and put that issue behind us.

    3) Spending and deficit is a huge issue, and polls show public on our side. However, if we dig our heals in and fight to the death then we lose. That may not feel good but I believe that is fact. It is what it is.

    4) Anger and rage do no one any good. Pick our battles wisely and fight to win. Retake (or make headroads to) the Senate in 2014 and add a few seats to Congress.

    5) Retake the White House in 2016

    I understand the frustration, but expectations are a bit unrealistic in my opinion. If the goal is to marginalize the Conservative cause then we are well on our way. In my opinion you can reach the same end point while rebuilding the GOP brand (which is badly tarnished). Just my 2-cents.

Not sure she will be the strongest candidate in 2016, since we've got a deep bench of Conservative Governors ready to run (forget Bush and the Fat Man). I guess we'll see.

    This smacks as a bit of over reaction to me. The media (?) or a couple of (liberal?) college kids having fun? Millions of kids (and adults) play video games. Millions of people own guns. A few nuts kill people. I think the problem is a combination of sick brains and truly evil people.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not advocating games where leaders are used as targets. I just think there is an easier answer to the Newtown tragedy: evil exists in the world. Everything else is just a reach for control over a situation which we likely have none. My 2-cents.

    There is no paranoia, only panic from those who waited till the last minute to react by buying these items in panic mode...Now, I will not assume you did anything of the sort, your purchases were a wise thing to do, despite the financial impact on you at this time...I wish it was not that way for you...

    Fortunately (call it luck) we beat the craziness. I attended a gun show this weekend in Dalton, GA and was amazed at prices. Could have sold my rifles for twice what I paid and then some. The place was packed and people are down right mad. I find it concerning.

    I, along with many other have spent years planning, acquiring and adding to our collections, prudent actions to prepare for something that we all hoped wold never come to the potential some of us see, very clearly...And right around the corner...

    My wife and I sold off the lion share of our stock recently and tripled the size of our farm. We are focused on raising our own food, becoming self sufficient and getting ready for the coming storm.

    I hope we are still wrong about the potential and that this will blow over and off the burner when the first failed legislative/executive action is initiated...

    Well I can tell you my wife thinks you are right. I got an earful for the hour-plus ride to the Falcons game today. I just have a really hard time believing that Obama is going to go for such a significant power grab now. What worries me is the debt. If/we the dollar collapses things can go bad fast.

    Things are wound pretty tight now. People are sick of losing their liberty and freedom. Everyone seems to be on edge. It concerns me.

    “I just don’t see Obama trying to pass any type of weapon or magazine ban through executive order.” Really??? In your own words, you illustrate your ignorance of the process...There would be NOTHING TO PASS, it is an executive decision, period...

    Please, don't confuse choice of words with ignorance. I absolutely understand an Executive Order is the stroke of a pen.

    What I find fascinating is the extent of the paranoia. As if the boogie man Obama has mystical powers that no POTUS has had before him, and everyone else in Congress will put aside their self interests to execute his plan.

    Listen, my first reaction to the Newtown tragedy was illness. My second was to order my Armalite Super SASS AR-10. It was on my wishlist, but fear of "now or never" drove me to rush a purchase I really could not afford. Add to that 1,000 rounds of .223 ammo and (back ordered) of mags AR-10 & AR-15 rifles and my desperate search for .308 rounds and a decision on the Glock 26 vs. 19 and my "preparation" is complete. Bottom line - I've spent a lot of money I didn't have based entirely on fear of what might happen.

    Anything is possible, and yes Obama can choose to issue an illegal (i.e. unconstitutional) ban on magazines and/or weapons. He could go so far as order all weapons be turned in, followed by issue a decree for a door to door search for weapons. While he is at it he could also issue an EO dismissing Congress and formalizing his ascension as the Supreme Ruler of the USA. My point is that it is unlikely he will take that path, since it would likely backfire and potentially cripple the remainder of his 4-year agenda.

    Consider:

    1) There are several Democrat Senators from Red states running in 2014. Their #1 priority will be keeping their jobs.

    2) Congressional Republicans in Conservative districts are unlikely to support any gun control measures. They have to run for re-election in 2014 and their #1 priority will be keeping their jobs.

    3) Red state Governors, specifically those in the southern and western states, are likely to refuse to implement any Obama EO that restricts the rights of the citizens who vote for them.

    4) The Supreme Court would likely deem the ruling unconstitutional and toss the law out the window.

    Now Obama may consider all of these facts and decide to commit the suicidal move of issue the EO anyways. If he takes that step he will create a constitutional crisis. While I put nothing past this man, I just think he is smarter then that. I may be proved wrong.

    I just don’t see Obama trying to pass any type of weapon or magazine ban through executive order. First of all, I doubt seriously that it would be legal. Secondly, going around Congress smacks of totalitarianism. Thirdly, he’ll likely upset pro-gun Democrats as well. The only way for him to effectively implement new gun control laws is through Congress, and I just gave my doubts that it happens this year.

    I would like to be hopeful about 2014, but after the lost opportunities of 2010 (Sharon Angle) and the ass whooping of 2012, I just can’t. And I can see us winning the Presidency back in 2016, but I can’t see us with much chance after that. In a few more cycles Texas will become a battleground state, and then it’s pretty much lights out.

    Then all is lost? I think you are way too negative. We did not get beat as badly as you suggest in this election, and if you look at it on a state by state basis we did not have great candidates. More importantly, we had a very WEAK candidate at the top of the ticket. Dem participation was not up. Republican participation was down. Romney, as predicated, was that bad.

    We had a liberal Republican tailor made for Mass in Scott Brown lose to the ridiculous Elizabeth Warren.

    Oh my. An extreme liberal won in Massachusetts. Another shocker for you: the fat man from NJ is a RINO. Yes we have lost the Northeast, but we have NOT lost the war. Isn't Ted Cruz from Texas and Hispanic?

    I am a pessimist.

    Give me time. I'll make a believer out of you yet.

    We may not win the Presidency again, and the Senate seems a lost cause now too considering how deeply we got our clocks cleaned this year with conservative, moderate, and liberal Republicans all losing, in many cases to shitty opponents.

    Oh my. I guess I have a different perspective. I thought we lost the Senate this year because we nominated two idiots, at least with respects to their political capabilities: Akin and Mourdock both lost because they were stupid enough to make statements concerning rape. Both should have known better. The fact that they did not shows how weak they were as candidates (sorry to the purest out there but you can have principles while avoiding idiotic statements).

    Romney was the perfect foil for Obama, and many on this site tried to highlight that fact. His staff made matters worse by allowing Obama to define him unanswered throughout the summer. Demographics had little to do with it.

    It is important to remember that following W's victory in 2004 the Republicans were supposed to never lose again. We all remember 2006. These things tend to swing back and forth, and it is likely we will see gains in the Senate in 2014 followed by the presidency in 2016. Nothing guaranteed, but there is a deep bench of diverse Conservatives to choose from ... the advantage of holding 30 governorships.

    I suspect that the government has the NRA membership list and will go after them first.

    I have a hard time believing that the state of Georgia (mine), Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, ... are going to willfully assist the Feds in going door-to-door to collect guns from anyone. An outright confiscation has no chance of passing and even less chance of succeeding. It may take 2 or 3 individuals fighting back to kick off the resistance, but I have little doubt it will occur. Given the weak state of our economy and the mess in Europe that could be the catalyst to bring down the whole house of cards.

    I can not imagine the House ever passing such a ban let alone confiscation. Even Congress is not that dumb!!

    How about in response to the Rochester shooting we discuss executing people who beat their grandmother to death with a hammer?

    Nutter is just another Philly moron made mayor. I remember when Mayor Wilson Goode’s response to the MOVE movement was to bomb their row home and burn down over 70 homes in a West Philly neighborhood. There simply has not been a decent mayor of Philadelphia since Rizzo.

    Born and raised in the suburbs of Philly we fled the Northeast for Northwest GA 3 years ago. Best move of my life.

    Any confiscation will be “voluntary.” It will start by a campaign to make people feel guilty about owning certain types of guns.

    Anyone dumb enough to be guilt-ed out of their weapon(s) is probably not bright enough to own one in the first place.

    I am planning to visit my fav gun shop this week and fill his pockets with bucks for bullets.

    If you can find them. Bullet shelves are bare everywhere I go. Local shop that had magazines were selling them for $35+. I was fortunate to make some bulk purchases last week, since it looks like the run is on.

    Because the logic of self-defense is so basic and so natural that even a deeply programmed liberal cannot escape the power of the argument: we have a right and a duty to protect our kids, and weaponizing their caretakers is still the best, simplest way to do this in a world where craziness happens. Period. We win. They lose. Deal with it.

    I hope so. Difficult for me to gauge. Where I live gun ownership is a given. It is the blue Northeast states that concern me.

    Most likely scenario is a reinstatement of the assault weapon ban, outlaw magazines > 10, and close the so-called “gun show” loophole. They will not confiscate guns at the national level.

    but the obama put homosexual in the military and the leadership has been infested with non-merit promoted and the quota (low competence) political correctness hires. (see abugrabe etc.)

    Maybe, but all I hear from my son is how much they (him and those in his unit) hate Obama. Not a very scientific study, but gives moment for pause. In any case they are not taking Georgia guns anytime soon.

    American gun owners comprise the largest armed force on the planet. We dwarf the American military, which comprises roughly 1.5 million active duty personnel.

    Like I mentioned in another post ... while the liberals were teaching their kids to protest the military we were teaching ours to serve. Something to think about.

    You know the only thing scarier then an man with a gun is a Christian man with a gun. Jesus Christ conquered death, so believers have nothing to fear.

    The question I ask these gun control morons is this: who exactly do you think will come and get my guns? The local Sheriff I know by name? The officers whom I chat with from time to time? Our local Government agents, who in reaction to the Sandy Hook massacre have introduced legislation to increase access to guns? Maybe they'll send the Armed Forces my way. Of course they forget that while they were raising their kids to protest the military we were teaching ours to serve.

    It is possible that the semi-auto ban be reinstated. I have my doubts as long as the Republicans hold the House, but possible. But even Biden is not stupid enough to think that there is any way to collect our guns.

    Then, they will pass a law requiring you to turn in your legal firearms.

    I am not saying that it can not happen. I am asking how will they enforce it? Do you think all those Red State Governors are going to comply any more then liberal Governors comply with our immigration laws? Do you expect my local sheriff to show up at my house if I don't willingly turn in my weapon? If he did he would know me by name.

    My only point is that there is the possible and then there is the practical. Yes, if we continue to elect liberals to national office then we eventually will lose the Supreme Court and potentially have things turn against us. Even then, while some may comply there will be many willing to die. After the second or third incident we have the makings for one significant revolt.

    I could be wrong. Just saying ...

    Christie criticized the NRA proposal, saying we can’t turn schools into “armed camps”.
