It’s us vs. them. There I said it. The war between the silent majority and intellectual imperialism has officially begun. God help us. It began on September 3 2008 when Sarah Louise Heath Palin walked onto the stage in Saint Paul Minnesota to accept the Republican Party nomination for vice president. In that instant the massed mouths of America hit the floor. Some jaws hit the floor because of intellectual disdain, yet many more jaws hit the floor for quite a different reason. On that stage stood a living, breathing, walking and talking affront to the dangerous progressive ideals of the self anointed brainy and cerebral left. Sarah Palin took the offense and instantly became our warrior, an effective thorn in the side of the pretentiously puffed up liberals. She proved that women didn’t have to divorce their husbands and have abortions to be successful. She spoke our language, she inspired us that all was not lost; she gave us hope, she was a populist and showed our own that we finally had adequate representation for the first time since Ronald Reagan.
Who is the silent majority? As Sarah said in Saint Paul, “They are the ones who do some of the hardest work in America ... who grow our food, run our factories, and fight our wars “. I’ll take it a step farther, the silent majority did not attend Harvard, Princeton or Yale ( the original Axis of Evil ) and we don’t drink lattes, have colonics, “ do lunch “, pay someone to walk our dog, or frighten our children with “green” anti-capitalist environmental propaganda. We say our prayers at night, get up in the morning, go about our day, run our errands, and are proud to contribute to free market American individualism. We don’t read “self help” books about the power of persuasion and we don’t care what Oprah thinks. We try hard to solve our problems on our own. We care for and raise our families very nicely without the learned experience of nannies, birthing specialists, life coaches or surrogates.
On July 26 2009 the silent majority received an important message which resonated deeply within each of us when Sarah Palin beat the democrats at their own game by transferring power to Lt. Governor Sean Parnell. Sarah said, “it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: “Sit down and shut up”, but that's the worthless, easy path; that's a quitter's way out. And a problem in our country today is apathy. It would be apathetic to just hunker down and “go with the flow”. Nah, only dead fish “go with the flow”. Then came healthcare and America got a shocking glimpse at the blatant authoritarian agenda of this administration. Yet something wonderful and very American happened. We saw Sarah Palin’s inspirational words come to action in August as thousands upon thousands of regular everyday citizens flocked to town hall meetings, intent to loudly raise their previously ignored voices of opposition to their out of touch lordly representatives.
And so the sleeping giant has been awakened. Phase two of this war begins. One million patriots marched on Washington DC on September 12 2009 to protest big government. The cavalry has arrived. Sarah Palin has united the conservative American populate. The timing could not be more crucial to our republic. As the intentionally hypnotic and deceptive charm of President Barack Obama is rapidly fading into redundancy, his true colors are beginning to show. The intellectual lefts oppressive agenda can no longer be hidden behind his flashing smile and bogus centrism. Yes the sleeping giant has been awakened just in time to see that this creepy new emperor has no clothes.
