Sarah Palin finds comfort in Corinthians
politico.com ^ | November 7, 2012

Posted on 11/07/2012 2:04:14 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

Sarah Palin urged her supporters in a Facebook message on Wednesday not to “lose heart” now that President Barack Obama has defeated Mitt Romney, but she warned the president’s “socialist policies” will hurt the middle class.

“America, don’t lose heart. This election is not an ‘Obama mandate,’ nor is it a rejection of conservatism,” wrote Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee. “As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, it’s impossible to un-ring it. Ironically, it’s Obama’s socialist policies that will destroy America’s working class as he outsources opportunities.”

She continued: “Hang in there, America. Fight for what is right. Don’t look to government or any politician to solve your problems. Government can’t make you happy, healthy, wealthy or wise. Obama is a master at reading the right “soaring” words fed into his teleprompter, but actions speak louder than words. So, hold tight to 2 Corinthians 4:8 because we’re in for a wild ride. We must survive. United. One nation under God.”

She then cited the Bible verse in her Facebook post: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed.”

Look up. We don’t hang by O’s thread.

This country, our neighbors, have voted for the trouble that is coming, and we’ll have to be strong enough to hold it all together. When it comes it will be up to us.

Build the America you want to live in at your address, and keep looking up.

Sarah Palin Ping!

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[a] Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of G-d.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Jew, Christian, Whatever! Sarah is reminding us G-d wants us to persevere.

Perhaps Sarah would like to head up our new party after we toss the Republicrat one in the dust bin.

Now that's a winner! Sharp, succint, quote-worthy. (Not that, "Watch out for spiders," was bad. They're everywhere this time of year.)

He already has, despite Sarah seeming being tested like Job was, as long as her heart is true, her enemies will fail in the end!

G-d bless you Trisham for standing by a true Representative of Conservatism.

God Bless Sarah Palin..she is always the eternal optimist..her strong faith in God is what keeps her going and it is what will keep me going. Last night just depressed me to no end..seeing America die, knowing that our Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves just makes me so sad. Obama wanted a Socialist utopian society, his supporters want free stuff..I dont know what is about to happen to my country I hope it can survive

Sorry Sarah, Its over. the Vote was a landslide for Obama. His link of minorities, MSM, Unions and the left in Hollywood as made the man supreme. Look to see the death of the GOP. Now they are only tolerated to supply “Straw Men” to the all powerful Democratic Progressive Party. Next time you can run, Sarah, and be crushed by Michelle or Van Jones or who ever Obama and his crew select. Obama can now rule by decree—loon to see Guns taken out of Private Hands and gold taken by the FED. The war is lost—Now we all know what it was like when the Nazi Soldiers marched into Paris —into four years of occupation, starvation, and a prison camp mentality. Its over! We have been bested by a well oiled machine. Best to change party to Democrat now—so you you get a party Ration Card and more food for your family.

What a contrast SArah is to the weeping, babbling, gibbering cowards around here who “opused” out today.

What a grimacing, cringing spectacle to witness.

I’m a little miffed at Sarah at the moment. Had she been willing to throw her hat in the ring for POTUS this last time, we might not be facing the disaster that looms.

ann coulter... and yes I hate her guts... said on hannity a bit ago that she still wants crispie creme to run for president... she blew up at the suggestion that lardass did the wrong thing swapping spit with obama and that 2016 “is too important to run a woman". She was absolutely talking about Sarah. Well my my my... I think if we have an election in 2016... and that has less than a 50% chance... that it is too important an election for anyone to ever again support any republican... and my hate for that shrew named ann has just grown exponentially.

What a class act she is! After yesterday I don't know if America is deserving of what she could bring to the table.

Thanks. Yes, that’s an apt passage. I strive to put God first, and when everything seems to go wrong then it becomes even more obvious why that is so important.

If you really love your family, then you owe it to them to love God more. And if you really love your country, the same holds true.

If the second of the two great commandments is to love thy neighbor as thyself, it derives from the First: to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.”

Everything else follows from that.

Sarah, as much as I hate politicians to declare early, and then drag out a campaign forever, this is one instance when I feel that you MUST declare for 2016 very soon! How son? Before the 2014 midterms. YOu need to get people fired up behind you so we don’t start with 12 trying to fight it out. In the meantime, make your points carefully and explicitly so there is no reason for people to say that don’t know you, don’t know what you believe in, etc. Lay the groundwork and build on it. We need you, Sarah!
