Sarah Palin Can Save This Republic

(article originally published at on 09/26/11)

I am a conservative, which means that I believe in fiscal responsibility, free markets, personal responsibility and the Constitution. When the voting choices are between a Democrat and a Republican, I vote Republican because that gives me better odds that my candidate will be fiscally responsible and loyal to the Republic.

There are other people who vote Republican who bear no philosophical resemblance to me. They think it’s okay to kill babies without restraint, raise taxes and grow government. I don’t know why they call themselves Republicans, because their philosophies do not even remotely mirror the Republican Party platform. I also don’t know why fiscally responsible “Democrats” vote Democrat. But that’s not my problem to solve.

As a citizen activist and a voter, I see it as my job to help save the Republic from socialism and fiscal demise (which, by the way, always go hand-in-hand). I want a presidential candidate who has no history of cozying up to terrorists; nor people from religions and countries which do not denounce terrorists; illegal immigrants; nor socialist policies. That omits Chris Christie, Ron Paul, Rick Perry and Mitt Romney from receiving my support.

I would be wary of supporting anybody hyped by the MSM, because it’s in their best interest to promote the biggest RINO among the candidate field. The MSM wants a Democrat to win, and just as they promoted John McCain, to the shock and horror of my fellow conservatives, they will again promote somebody whose policies bear no resemblance to conservative policies. And then they will refer to that person as a “conservative”, which really galls me, because the public is unfortunately gullible enough to believe that somebody is conservative simply because the MSM says so.

The MSM will keep its distance from any truly conservative candidate who can stand firmly on their record, because the true conservative stands a much, much better chance of winning a presidential election than a RINO.

My conservative candidate of choice is Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin’s record in Alaska shows her to be the bravest, most effective legislator I’ve ever known. She accomplished incredible feats as Governor and united Democrats and Republicans in order to succeed with projects which brought great prosperity to her state. She swept the Capitol clean of traditional political corruption in situations where typical legislators wouldn’t dare risk their political capital and financial support by rocking the boat.

Sarah Palin scares people. I can understand why she’d scare politicians, especially when entering a White House and federal government completely staffed by Chicago-style thugs. But to me, the liberal fear of Sarah Palin is just incredibly silly. Yes, yes, I know they’re terrified that she’ll force them to have Down Syndrome babies. Get real! The POTUS has no ability to change abortion laws, and this is not (yet) a socialist country, which means the POTUS cannot force you to have abortions OR babies.

We are at a crossroads in America, where the single most important issue is saving America from a socialist train wreck.

Listen carefully, liberals and conservatives. Your abortion-driven vote is a classic case of not seeing the forest for the trees. If we do not elect a fiscal conservative in November 2012 who will dramatically rein in debt and spending, remove onerous business regulations and decrease corporate taxes, your concerns over abortion will be moot, because in socialist governments, your opinion does not count!

If we save the Republic, you still get to fight over abortion. If we lose the Republic, your government will tell you EXACTLY what you can and cannot do with your reproductive system.

You want everybody to have abortions? Then you need to save the Republic first.

You want nobody to have abortions? Then you need to save the Republic first.

You want to save the Republic? Elect somebody who has already saved her state: Sarah Palin.
