Lately the boys in the beltway have been really scared of a Madame President Sarah Palin. They are scared because the election of Sarah Palin as President of the United States will render them and their beloved titles, positions, and political substructures irrelevant.
All of their theories, brand name education, and meaningless academic logic will be unnecessary in the fundamental restoration of America.
Common sense and citizen politicians will put America back on the right track. Not Harvard, not Princeton, and not Yale. They are the problem creators. We the people, led by Sarah Palin are the problem solvers.
Citizen politicians are proving the hoity toity intellectuals are not needed. Common sense conservatism leads to a smaller smarter government. This is not just what America needs, this is what America wants, because this is what America is supposed to be.
A favorite narrative among the beltway boys is to complain that Sarah Palin needs to talk about policy. The truth is she does. All the time. All you have to do is look.
Anyone who has complaints about Sarah Palin's approach to policy is either ignorant, or they are purposefully ignoring it and lying in order to advance a false media narrative.
The sin of omission applies accross the board in the intentional mis-reporting on Sarah Palin.
All anyone has to do is:
1. Read her Facebook Page
2. Watch her speeches on You-Tube. You know what? Watch her speeches on PalinTV!
All you have to do is look and you will find: Policy, Policy, Policy.
That speech to the Wine & Spirits Industry? Policy.
The multiple speeches to numerous Chambers of Commerce? Policy
The Trade Show speeches? Policy.
The Wholesaler Conventions? Policy.
Hong Kong? Yup, you guessed it: POLICY!
One of the best summaries available on Sarah Palin's policy ideas is a November 13, 2010 Facebook note. It was: An Open Letter to Republican Freshmen Members of Congress.
I remember reading this in Chicago at the Conservatives4Palin meeting in the morning and almost being late to breakfast because I really wanted to take my time and study this.
The note is heavy. The note is long. It should be. Why? BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT POLICY! I encourage anyone who has not read it to do so. If you have already read it, read it again so you can be prepared to talk to people about Sarah Palin's policy ideas as we approach the 2012 primary season.
The letter covers: the deficit, entitlements, encourages zero based budgeting practices, appropriate regulations, taxes, border security, foreign policy, trade, national security, the defense budget, missile defense, nuclear infrastucture, terrorism, Guantanamo Bay, do I need to go on?
Going into 2012 Barack Obama now has something that he did not have in 2008...A record.
In 2008 Obama masked his agenda, his fundamental transformation, with fake moderation and even faker centrism. Now the mask is off. His deception is finished.
Social engineering in the guise of legislation is over. America wants a smaller smarter government. America wants to shrink the federal government. Obama wants to grow it. Americans want to allow states rights. Obama wants to strengthen and centralize Washington D.C.'s power. Americans believe in individual rights. Obama believes in collective salvation. America wants private sector progress. Obama wants to replace everything with the incentives of the welfare state.
The People prefer a leader like Sarah Palin who believes in a prouder America. A stronger America. A better America.
We are tired of the schooled up experts telling us how to run our lives.
Americans are tired of a media and a President who would rather run down America than build her up.
The 2010 elections taught us many things. One of the best lessons we learned is that as citizens we must actively engage in the narrative about our candidates. We cannot allow the media to frame the narrative for our candidates any longer. Those candidates lost. We must fight back the lies immediately and consistently.
As the GOP establishment and the left combine forces to keep good candidates like Sarah Palin out of office it is up to us to stand up and speak out.
We must prepare ourselves for our right to fight to be heard. We will be heard.
Now is the time to stand up for our Values, our Voice, our Vote...our America.
