An open letter to Governor Sarah Palin:
Dear Mrs. Palin,
I'm writing this open letter to make the case for you to seriously consider a run for the Presidency in 2012.
I believe that our nation is at a critical juncture, and the need for a strong, noble leader is desperate. Times like these are when great leaders often emerge. Winston Churchill in 1940, Ronald Reagan in 1980. Now, it's time for the great leader of the next decade, and I think you are the one we're looking to.
We need the GOP to win the presidency next year, but that's just a start. What good does it do just to win the election without a clear blueprint for Renewal? The GOP may as well just throw in the towel if they don't have the vision and courage to put forth a common-sense conservative agenda, and stick to it until success is achieved. The Republicans may as well be co-conspirators if they fail to distinguish themselves from the soft tyranny that's being promoted by Washington through it's various departments and agencies. How could anyone blame the electorate for feeling that "There's not a dime's worth of difference" between the two parties unless the Republicans act boldly in defense of these principles?
Hence my plea, on behalf of The American People. All across the country for the past 3 years, huge crowds have waited for your appearances. I can tell you that the reason I went to hear you was that you speak in a voice that's of us. We see in you a kindred spirit who's not afraid to fight for her beliefs, and we find it inspirational. As you stated in the first speech that I heard you make, "A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not why the ship was built."
Mrs. Palin, it's probably presumptuous to try to read God's Will, so I'll only say that I don't think it's a coincidence that you've emerged as a leader at this time in our history. I also understand the enormity of the task we're asking you to undertake, and know you've got duties as a wife and mother that have to be considered. I personally support whatever decision you come to. I just want to emphasize the huge army of supporters who see you as the leader who can allow us to turn over to our children and grandchildren the same country we inherited.
You can defend Romney all you want by ignoring his failure and leaving his 48 months of government experience with a 34% approval and play down Governor Palin’s almost 20 years of successful, conservative, office holding and political efforts in our cause (13 years in elective office during those 20).
This Reagan in a dress is roughly tied with Mitt Romney as they fill the 1 and 2 top tiers as candidates, she does that without declaring, and with a hostile media.
All we conservatives have to accomplish is to win the primary and it looks like the top challenger that the anti-Palin crowd can offer, is Mitt Romney.
Bloody hell, man. Was all that really necessary? Free Republic isn’t a private club. Please don’t treat it like one. We need and welcome new members.
