You all know that the country is going through a war against the socialized medicine that Obama is trying to rush through.
And what I want to know is, where is Sarah in all this?
This is the greatest fight for freedom in history, and she should be out in front.
The liberals are so scared of her that if she opposed Obamacare it would not have a chance.
when she quit being governer I figured she was going to stand up for american freedoms, but she has just not been out front.
America needs a leader now and she is the one america is waiting for to stop obama. I hope she is meeting right now with the top GOP leaders to figure out how she is going to come out against Obamacare before it is too late!
She is still the Governor of Alaska until July 31, 2009.
Shouldn’t your man Mitt Romney be leading the charge?
Welcome to FreeRepublic.com Sarah Supporter.
Governor Palin doesn’t have to lead any fight at all.
If YOU care about YOUR healthcare; YOU get involved.
After learning what this Bill has in it, it’s time for us all to lead the way on health care instead of waiting for others to take the lead.
I’m not depending on anyone else but me and I’m mad as hell!
She will come out against Obama care, but she doesn’t “have” to do anything really, except be Sarah.
How old are you?
“quit”???? ... sniff, sniff......
Is it the 31st? Somehow I remember it as the 26th.
Clever, signing up as a Palin supporter to diss Sarah Palin. So who do you really support?
Fie Fi Foe Frum
I smell the stench of sockpuppet scum.
“I hope she is meeting right now with the top GOP leaders.”
Oh lord, I sure hope she isn’t hangin’ with that sorry bunch.
Perhaps you should quit worrying about where Sarah Palin is, and worry about where you are, since you seem to be lost. This is a serious political discussion forum, which doesn’t take kindly to people posting incoherent pointless threads on the first day they’re registered here (or ever, but old-timers get some leeway).
WHAT are *those*? The wannabee Viking Puppies?
I smell a troll. Celtic Diva, is that you?? It is NOT Sarah’s job to bring down ObamaCare, that is the job of the Senate and the House. Even if Sarah does speak out against ObamaCare, it won’t change anything, she is just one voice, it is up to all of us to stop this crap before it gets passed
LOL! Why not, where does it say just kitties get to have all the fun? ;-)
ya what Cindy said.
You could be right. I’m working from a 68 year old memory.
Thank you happinesswithoutpeace.
Current GOP = Douche bag bag carriers.
Oh, brilliant idea. Except for one thing. She’s not stupid and neither are we. I realize the attacks on Bush to divert attention are failing to work since he’s actually not in office anymore, but Sarah will not be your diversion to distract the American people from what is being attempted by your party.
My guess is that it is an anti Palin freeper or ex freeper, not a democrat.
Hey thanks for straitening me out that she did not quit the governor job.
Now I thought there would be a lot more support here for Sarah coming out and taking the lead against Obama.
He’s pushing for his socialism every day and where is she?
hey thanks for straitening me out, she is no quitter, for sure!
Relax. Wait till she officially leave office up in Alaska. Then She’ll be down her leading the fight against the Obama socialist agenda.
"Massachusetts Universal Healthcare System Breaking Down Already
When Governor Mitt Romney instituted a universal healthcare plan for Massachusetts in 2006 he proclaimed it a conservative idea.
But has it worked? Has it been successful?
For a time, many thought it might but cracks in the system are already being seen.
These cracks are instructive as a lesson on how Obamacare will crash and burn just like Romneycare is now in the process of doing.
One of the early claims that helped push Romneycare through to law was the insistence by its supporters that Emergency Room visits would fall as more and more citizens became covered under healthcare insurance.
Since ER care is far more expensive than a doctor's care, it was thought that more people with insurance would ease the overcrowding of ERs as well as lower the overall costs of healthcare.
However, a flaw in this logic has been seen throughout the state. As more people became insured, more people demanded the care of doctors. These doctors became overloaded with patients and waiting lists for doctors got longer and longer.
As a result, ERs in Massachusetts have not seen a downturn in visits. On the contrary, it seems that ER visits are actually on the upswing in the Bay State. In fact, in 2007 they were higher than the national average by 20 percent...
"Hospital patients 'left in agony'"
"Patients were allegedly left screaming in pain and drinking from flower vases on a nightmare hospital ward.
Between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust over three years, a damning Healthcare Commission report said.
The watchdog's investigation found inadequately trained staff who were too few in number, junior doctors left alone in charge at night and patients left without food, drink or medication as their operations were repeatedly cancelled.
Patients were left in pain or forced to sit in soiled bedding for hours at a time and were not given their regular medication, the Commission heard.
Receptionists with no medical training were expected to assess patients coming in to A&E, some of whom needed urgent care.
Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of the NHS, said there had been a "gross and terrible breach" of patients' trust and a "complete failure of leadership".
The Healthcare Commission's chairman Sir Ian Kennedy said the investigation followed concerns about a higher than normal death rate at the Trust, which senior managers could not explain.
He said: "The resulting report is a shocking story. Our report tells a story of appalling standards of care and chaotic systems for looking after patients. These are words I have not previously used in any report.
"There were inadequacies in almost every stage of caring for patients. There was no doubt that patients will have suffered and some of them will have died as a result."
Julie Bailey, 47, was so concerned about the care being given to her 86-year-old mother Bella at Stafford Hospital that she and her relatives slept in a chair at her bedside for eight weeks.
She said: "We saw patients drinking out of..."
"Paramedics told: 'Let accident victims die if they want to' in new row over patient rights (UK)"
Health Service paramedics have been told not to resuscitate terminally-ill patients who register on a controversial new database to say they want to die.
It has been set up by the ambulance service in London for hundreds of people who have only a few months to live so that they may register their 'death wishes' in advance.
It is believed to be the first in the country, but other trusts around the country are expected to follow suit to comply with Government guidelines which state that patients' wishes should be taken into account, even at the point of death.
Patients' groups and doctors have welcomed the scheme, but it has met opposition from pro-life groups who say it violates the sanctity of life.
The system would come into play if a cancer patient, for example, was in serious pain and rang 999 for help to alleviate the suffering.
But if the paramedics arrived and the patient was close to death, he or she would not be resuscitated if such a request was registered on the database.
This would also be the case if a patient on the database was being transferred between hospitals, and had a heart attack.
Dominica Roberts from the Pro-Life Alliance said: 'This is very sad and very dangerous. It's another step along the slippery slope, at the bottom of which is euthanasia as we see in Holland. 'Paramedics should be there to save lives. They should not be there to let patients die. The medical profession should not agree with someone's belief that their life is worthless.'"
"National Health Preview - The Massachusetts debacle, coming soon to your neighborhood."
"Three years ago, the former Massachusetts Governor had the inadvertent good sense to create the "universal" health-care program that the White House and Congress now want to inflict on the entire country.
It is proving to be instructive, as Mr. Romney's foresight previews what President Obama, Max Baucus, Ted Kennedy and Pete Stark are cooking up for everyone else.
In Massachusetts's latest crisis, Governor Deval Patrick and his Democratic colleagues are starting to move down the path that government health plans always follow when spending collides with reality -- i.e., price controls.
As costs continue to rise, the inevitable results are coverage restrictions and waiting periods. It was only a matter of time.
They're trying to manage the huge costs of the subsidized middle-class insurance program that is gradually swallowing the state budget.
The program provides low- or no-cost coverage to about 165,000 residents, or three-fifths of the newly insured, and is budgeted at $880 million for 2010, a 7.3% single-year increase that is likely to be optimistic.
The state's overall costs on health programs have increased by 42% (!) since 2006.
What really whipped along RomneyCare were claims that health care would be less expensive if everyone were covered.
But reducing costs while increasing access are irreconcilable issues.
Mr. Romney should have known better before signing on to this not-so-grand experiment, especially since the state's "free market" reforms that he boasts about have proven to be irrelevant when not fictional.
Only 21,000 people have used the "connector" that was supposed to link individuals to private insurers."
A Very Sick Health Plan; Bay States Grand Experiment Fails [RomneyCare]
"The Daily News Record, Harrisonburg, Va. - 2009-03-31 "
"For folks increasingly leery of President Obamas plan to radically overhaul Americas health-care system,
or 17 percent of the nations economy, all this could hardly have come at a better time
that is, fiscal troubles aplenty within Repubican Mitt Romneys brainchild, Massachusetts grand experiment in universal health care."
"Initiated on Mr. Romneys gubernatorial watch in 2006, this experiment has fallen on hard times, and predictably so.
Even though the Bay State commenced its program with a far smaller percentage of uninsured residents than exists nationwide,
RomneyCare is threatening to bankrupt the state. Budgeted for Fiscal Year 2010 at $880 million,
or 7.3 percent more than a year ago, this plan, aimed at providing low- or no-cost health coverage to roughly 165,000 residents,
has caused Massachusetts overall expenditures on all health-related programs to jump an astounding 42 percent since 2006.
So what does Mr. Romneys successor, Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick, propose as a remedy for these skyrocketing costs?
Well, whaddya think? The standard litany of prescriptions (no pun intended) price controls and spending caps, for a start, and then, again predictably, waiting periods and limitations on coverage.
As in Europe and Canada, so too in Massachusetts. And, we feel certain, everyone from Mr. Romney to Mr. Patrick said, It would never happen here.
But then, such things are inevitable when best-laid plans, with all their monstrous costs, run smack-dab into fiscal reality.
Thousands of patients with terminal cancer were dealt a blow last night after a decision was made to deny them life prolonging drugs.
The Government's rationing body said two drugs for advanced breast cancer and a rare form of stomach cancer were too expensive for the NHS.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is expected to confirm guidance in the next few weeks that will effectively ban their use.
The move comes despite a pledge by Nice to be more flexible in giving life-extending drugs
to terminally-ill cancer patients after a public outcry last year over 'death sentence' decisions."
"Patients Forced To Wait Hours In Ambulances Parked Outside A&E Departments
"An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has found that thousands of 999 patients are being left to wait in ambulances in car parks and holding bays, or in hospital corridors in some cases for more than five hours before they can even join the queue for urgent treatment.
Experts warn that hospitals are deliberately delaying when they accept patients or are diverting them to different sites
in order to meet Government targets to treat people within fours hours of admitting them."
"Cancer survivor confronts the health secretary on 62-day wait (UK Socialized Medicine)
WAITING times for cancer treatment need to be cut, the Scottish Government was told yesterday.
..Cancer experts later said that patients elsewhere in Europe would be "outraged" by having to wait two months to start treatment, with most being seen within two weeks.
The current target of 62 days from urgent referral by a doctor to starting treatment has still not been met in Scotland, despite that originally being the target figure for 2005."
"Hospital patient so shocked at dirty ward she climbed out of bed to clean it herself
After 12 years cleaning care homes and private houses, no one is better qualified than Tereza Tosbell to say whether a room is spotless.
So hospital bosses should take heed of her opinion after she spent four days on a 'filthy' ward.
The mother-of-one said during her stay there was a single, brief visit from a cleaner who left dusty curtains, dirty bedframes and a messy floor.
Disgusted at the conditions, she grabbed the antibacterial fluid dispenser at the end of her bed and some hand towels from the bathroom.
She then set about cleaning her four-bed ward, at one point dropping to her hands and knees to sanitise the floor as she dragged her drip trolley behind her.
'It was shameful to see how sloppy the cleaners were while I was there. I was not prepared to put up with such conditions,'
said Miss Tosbell, a 48-year-old divorcee who was admitted to Colchester General Hospital in Essex with an abscess in her neck.."
"Kidney cancer patients denied life-saving drugs by NHS rationing body NICE (UK Socialized Medicine)
Thousands of kidney cancer patients are likely to lose out on life-prolonging drugs.
The NHS rationing body, NICE, has confirmed a ban on three out of four new treatments.
.. 'Families will be denied time together and doctors will be unable to give patients the best treatment.'."
"Girl, 3, has heart operation cancelled three times because of bed shortage (UK Socialized Medicine)
A three-year-old girl awaiting heart surgery has had her operation cancelled three times this month because of a shortage of beds.
... A hospital spokesman said that procedures would be reviewed, but the case highlights a growing problem of cancelled operations in the NHS.
More than 57,000 surgeries were postponed for non-clinical reasons, including a lack of beds, last year 10 per cent more than the previous year."
Her resignation doesn’t take effect until July 26th. After that look for the fireworks. You undoubtedly witnessed the reaction to her cap and trade op/ed. She didn’t really say anything that others haven’t said, but the 0bama crowd knows that whatever Palin says people listen to, and they know that what she says makes sense, because it’s ground in good old fashioned common sense.
I’m sure a op/ed on 0bamacare is in the works, and will be released late this week or early next week.
As soon as she’s free, watch for the fireworks to begin for real.
Sarah’s not your sock puppet.
Sarah Supporter ... huh?
Well you are on the correct forum as there are lots of Sarah supporters here. You should feel right at home. Have fun, enjoy and take care.
Obama care...... Look for Jindal to come to the front on this one. Give him some support if you truly want this mess defeated.
Oh lord, I sure hope she isnt hangin with that sorry bunch.
Key word hangin’...that would just about tear it for me...she is my last hope for someone on the national stage that can lead us somewhere I want to be...
Hey thanks for all the Sarah Support on this board!!!
You know it makes me real frustrated that we are all waiting for the ultimate show down... Sarah vs. Lying Kenyan Muslin Socialist... and we all know how that is going to turn out! But why is it taking so long???
ANd another thing that frustrates me is the liberal media keeps attacking her and saying mean things like she quit her governor job and they make her look all retarded and stuff, and it’s so not true.
She is our next president! ANd then liberals look out!!!!!!!
We need better trolls.

This is not very funny anymore, troll...”retarded” in re to Sara Palin will get you a lot of pain from me, whoever you are...and don’t say “it’s them saying it not me” you stupid SOB...
Hey I’m sorry if I said the wrong thing again... jeez you people have a lot of rules on this board.
Any way I did not say she was a retard, it’s what the liberal media wants you to think... and they do that because they are so afraid of her, she is going to lead AMERICA to greatness like it used to be, and they hate that, they want AMERICA to fail.
“Hey Im sorry if I said the wrong thing again... jeez you people have a lot of rules on this board.”
I don’t know if you are an idiot or a troll or both...but get away from me...I mean it...
Pay attention noob. She's throwing off the yoke of political correctness. She has 5 more days until she is free. Until then what can YOU do to stop Congress from passing these pigs? That's a question you need to ask yourself.
Oh and I didnt mean that America is not great now, it is real great, but it could be greater if we got rid of all the SOCIALISTS and lying gun grabbing Muslim kenyan liars.
Well hey buddy dont get mad at me, we are all AMERICANS here.
And I am sorry if I cant express myself real pretty like Obama, but I do not have a lot of fancy elite ivy degrees like him and his LIBERAL scum allies.
It just makes me real mad when they call Sarah “Balin’ Palin” and they say she is not fit to run a hot dog stand. And that she talks all confused and stuff. Well, there was another AMERICA hero who talked all confused. and I think you know who I am talking about.
They hate her because she is so good and a Christian.
There’s nothing they hate more than good people who are Christian and want to take AMERICA back from the illegals and lying LIBERALS socialist who want to take all our freedoms away.
Why do they hate America so much? I dont know but I know Sarah makes them real, real nervous so they have to attack her and that is what made her NOT QUIT from the governors job.
But now she has thrown off the yolk of political correctness and doesnt have governor responsibilities and stuff, there will be less to attack her with. And you can tell that makes the LIBERALS real mad. She is out smarting them at every turn!
Well hey buddy dont get mad at me, we are all AMERICANS here. It just makes me real mad when they call Sarah Balin Palin and they say she is not fit to run a hot dog stand.
What part of stop posting to me do you not understand, dimwit? I don’t want your crappy posts in my box...
Well if they wannabee Viking Puppies, they’ll need to learn to look tougher. A LOT tougher. Bare their fangs and stuff. Otherwise the Viking Kitties will laugh at them mercilessly.
What do they all think of Governor Romney? Could he help us?
Hey there are two things I know about Romney, 1. he is not Sarah and 2. he is not a Christian (Morman).
Sarah has been lifted up by Lord Jesus Christ to be put above all the tribes of the Earth in judgement.
