Skip to comments.Palin: 2012 is a Battle Between 'Big Government' and 'Big Freedom'
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 thats what you call hope, then we want change, Palin said.
Palin dubbed Obamas 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.

whatever, sarah palin.
BIG SLAVERY OR BIG FREEDOM.
It’s our choice.
When is a “Big Freedom” candidate announcing?
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 Romneys godless liberal progessivism, abortionism, homosexualism, statism, gun grabbing, big government socialism is less evil than Obamas?
You gotta love it.......
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.
Don't hold your breath...This is between those next in line on the insiders big party tour...nothing else maters. The elite control this show on both sides of the phony isle.
They drum up all this chet, and watch the peon mutts run for the bone.
Can we have some insight instead of stating the bleeding obvious????
Geez, I cannot stand these types of pronouncements.
Well, we do have “Big RomneyCare”
Doesn’t sound like Big Freedom to me.
Sarah doesn’t deserve these sorts of comments from Freepers.
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.
I have a thought.....
EVIL VS GOOD
MUSLIM VS CHRISTIAN
LIAR VS TRUTH
TAKE YOUR PICK
HAVE A NICE DAY!
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.
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 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.
Yeah? which side stands for big freedom? They’re both big government kinda guys.
Sarah will be around when the country goes broke...
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.
Willard doesn’t even look you in the eyes when he shakes your hand.
Sarah doesn’t have to stand on the ballot box.
A bullet box may be lying around instead.
So far, Big Slavery is ahead by a couple of lengths.
I like that!
Dang, I hope my prayers work.
Still praying for a miracle in Tampa!
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.
Because she has made herself just another talking head.
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.
