Palin: 2012 is a Battle Between 'Big Government' and 'Big Freedom'
Breitbart ^ | 07/15/2012 | Tony Lee

Posted on 07/15/2012 5:45:22 PM PDT by nhwingut

Sarah Palin boldly, clearly and sharply articulated the stakes in the 2012 election on Saturday when she addressed a "Patriots in the Park" Tea Party event. The event took place in Michigan and was sponsored by the Michigan branch of Americans for Prosperity and the Willow Run Tea Party Caucus.

“2012 is a race between the party of big government and the party of big freedom,” Palin said, contrasting the Republican party's vision with that of President Barack Obama's.

In reference to Obama and his policies, Palin said there was something “wrong with someone” who would want to fundamentally transform a country that was good and strong.

"If that’s what you call hope, then we want change,” Palin said.

Palin dubbed Obama’s economic policies as “Obamanomics,” called it a form of “crony capitalism on steroids” and said some aspects of Obamacare should be dubbed “no bureaucrat left behind” for the thousands of I.R.S. jobs the bill has created to collect what the Supreme Court found to be a tax.

BIG SLAVERY OR BIG FREEDOM.

It’s our choice.

Palin is right.

Unfortunately she did not run this year.

Hopefully she can correct that, next time around.

“BIG SLAVERY OR BIG FREEDOM.”

True. However, Romney will be NO BETTER. I wished Sarah would really “go rogue” and denounce Romney for the phoney he is. It would be even better if she mounted a third party run.

I know it is fantasy though. :-(

In regards to Romney...Jim Robinson wrote today:

“If you are a pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty, small government conservative you would see that he is most definitely as bad as Obama. What part of Romney’s godless liberal progessivism, abortionism, homosexualism, statism, gun grabbing, big government socialism is less evil than Obama’s?”

Big Government vs Bigger Government

Yes, there is a choice -- one is better than the other -- but there's no use pretending to be happy about this cycle.

Romney may not be any better but we may be able to keep a tight rein on his sorry ass.

I can sum it up in one word: CONVERGENCE. There is no left or right in politics anymore, only interests. An outsider or wildcat has no chance of getting in, and setting things straight now. Those who try will be destroyed be the popular media, or by the current system itself. The people in the current government learned their history lessons very well, and are avoiding the mistakes made by previous empires.

How about:

EVIL VS GOOD

MUSLIM VS CHRISTIAN

LIAR VS TRUTH

TAKE YOUR PICK

HAVE A NICE DAY!

And you say “whatever”.

She also doesn’t deserve to be treated like Reagan incarnate. She’s a celebrity and a pundit. There are a lot of those around these days. Maybe too many.

A celebrity and a pundit who used her influence to great effect as in the 2010 elections.

Personally, my belief is the GOP doesn’t want her because if she achieved power she’d end the gravy train for both the rats and the GOP. Because of this she has to be the lone ranger..just her and a few million fed up conservatives. So she still has clout but not within the GOP.

The thing about Sarah is she loves this country, believes we should be as self-sufficient as we can and she walks the talk.

“She's a politician and she's not to be trusted.”- Obi Wan

She's half right; as has been hashed out before many are not sold that Big Freedom is anywhere on the ticket, particularly for president. However having been driven off that hill we must ardently begin the fight to whip up governors and state representative to stand for freedom.

I have not always agreed with everything Sarah Palin has said, nor with all of her positions however I will be the first to say that she indeed galvanized the Tea Party and energized patriots across America to stand up and fight, and we saw the results in 2010 when the ‘Rats lost their grip on the House.

Sarah has endorsed candidates that I would not want to see returned to Office, but that is her choice, she is certainly more conservative than anyone who was in the primary race or might have entered.

Now having said all that, personally I think that for any conservative who has stood with Sarah Palin for even five minutes, supporting her with time, effort, money and prayer (not necessarily in that order), to now choose to vote for the ‘lesser of two evils’, to support Romney who is diametrically opposed to nearly everything Sarah Palin and the Tea Party stand for, who has given every indication that she will be shunned and shut out at the upcoming convention in Tampa, no true supporter of Sarah could possibly consider stabbing her in the back and abandoning her by becoming a Romney turncoat.

Now it is true that Sarah will most likely support Romney if he becomes the nominee, and will vote for him, but being in the public eye, she has little choice.

We The People, have a choice and our choice does NOT have to be a default vote for Romney.

Write in Sarah Palin.

Sarah doesn’t have to stand on the ballot box.

A bullet box may be lying around instead.

Write in Sarah Palin.

That won’t help and would probably help elect Obama. A third party run might be another story. The GOP has abandoned the conservatives. It’s time for conservatives and all freedom loving people to abandon the GOP. If anyone, ever, could mount a successful third party run, it is Palin.

Sadly, most sheeple really believe that slavery is freedom and freedom is slavery.

They truly believe they are “freer” when the government provides for their needs.

If that’s all she is, then Romney would have no trouble inviting her to the convention.

Once you get past the Presidential vote, Sarah’s right. We have conservatives downticket who need our support even if the presumptive candidate is a socialist.
