I think I'll try and raise that $2 million for her PAC then.

If she will stand as a voice in opposition to the progressive/communist agenda, where do we send the check? No one is speaking up anymore...

She will need much more than $1.2M to shake up the GOP establishment!

Sarah will either save or completely kill off the GOP, either way is fine by me.

I hope Sarah, Levin, Rush & Beck coordinate efforts to take down the GOPe and unite the conservative base. The tea party was effective in 2010 as a loosely based coalition of local groups. It needs some strong leaders now to focus the strength of all those local groups.

At least this publication got it right!

Sarah drew first blood when she made her announcement on Mark Levin's show NOT Fox.

Ailes was mad as He//....LOL.

Sarah Palin was through with Fox before Ailes was aware, but he knew it on October 5, 2011.

Good news....although I do wish she does makes better choices with who she supports. Palin did support Amnesty Liberals John McCain and Jeff Flake in their Senate primary runs (both are part of Gang of 8 Rubio/Obama Amnesty bill). She also tried to find a third party candidate against Todd Akin in MO...joining the RINOs sandbagging his campaign.

Hopefully that a Palin leaving Faux News she will not be influenced PhonyCon RINOs

Sorry Sarah. Too late. Our last chance to save the Republic was before Obama was re-elected to finish the job of destroying the USA economy and institutions. Too late Sarah. There won’t be anything left to save. Now it is just a matter of how fast we decline and fall.

“After the Kerry vote today; it is CLEAR we need a second party. Up to it, Sarah?”

I think it may come to that eventually. With the Republican Party rapidly transforming into the Democrat-Lite Party, we’ll need one to represent conservatives.

Governor Palin stands by her principles and will stand by them no matter what. She resonates with the “average Joe” and we need someone like that in Washington, DC to clean house.....and believe me, there will be a house that needs to be cleaned.

I can actually make a case that Ronald Reagan was a RINO. Read on before hitting the abuse button.

With the 97-3 Senate vote to confirm the treasonous John Kerry (with only Cruz, Cornyn and Inhofe taking a principled stand), and with Sarah Palin's courageous stand, it's clear that the Republican party is simply living up to its long heritage as being the establishment, go-along-to-get-along, reach across the aisle collection of Washington insiders.

The default position of the GOP is not Conservative. And I don't think it ever was. Aside from Calvin Coolidge, the only authentic Conservative to ascend to the presidency was, of course, Ronald Wilson Reagan. Barry Goldwater tried but was hampered at every turn by the Northeastern elites, the Lodges and Rockefellers, the ones who have run the party for decades.

What Reagan did was run under Republican banner but, in his wisdom, he only used the party to advance the interests of a strong Conservative America. In that sense, he was indeed a Republican in name only since his cause was far greater and far nobler than that of the GOP!

Like Sarah Palin, President Reagan went rogue and transcended the constraints of the mere GOP. Until the leftists are eliminated from the Republicans (and we clearly saw just who they were today), in the strictest sense of the term, being a RINO is -- in fact -- a badge of honor.

Palin should spend her time and PAC resources going after the 40-50 House RINOS in their home districts. Take them on in their own backyards. RINOS are enemy #1 and everyone knows it.

Back in 2008 I saw Palin as the next Reagan. Now I don't know if she's the next Reagan or the next Ross Perot.

Cornyn’s no vote was cover - he’s up for re-election in 2014 - Kerry was going to be appointed anyway so this was a no-brainer vote for him. I’m sure he got together with the “boys” and explained his problem.

RINOS are enemy #1 and everyone knows it.

See my post earlier in this thread. It may be merely a semantic difference between us, but the enemy are CINOs, Conservative In Name Only. The Republican party has a heritage of eschewing Conservatism -- with the likes of George Norris, Thomas Dewey, Bob La Follette, Jacob Javits, Fiorello La Guardia, Olympia Collins, Bob Dole, Nelson Rockefeller and, sadly, far too many more fitting that profile.

The greatest president of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, rose above the mere party label of "Republican" to lead a Conservative revolution, fighting the long-entrenched leadership of the party. In that sense, President Reagan was a rebellious RINO since he cast off the shackles of mere Republicanism to advance genuine Conservatism. He was the real deal.

Republican != Conservative

I'm hoping that Sarah Palin and Tea Party Patriots can change that!

"and slammed her own party for selecting Mitt Romney as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee."

Sad to say, but we were right about Romney all along. Big "L" loser as a Republican nominee.

I’m all for Sarah, no matter what ventures she attempts to aspire, but she REALLY needs to get over the John McCain is great crap. HE is part of the problem. HE is a RINO. And if she wants to call “Moderates”, like Romney, out on the carpet, she NEEDS to put McLame in there as well. ALL of them need to go.

I still say the best ticket would be Rand Paul/Allen West (in any order), but if Sarah Palin wants to jump in again...I’m for that too. However, I think she needs to get someone more acceptable to the main stream conservatives because I know many who are totally turned off on her (for whatever lame reason) and she would need to get their support somehow.

I saw her that way too. I still think she could be only time will tell.

In 2011 she read the tea leaves, saw the polls and knew she couldn’t win. It was obvious we would get Mitt as the conservatives ate each other alive, and then dropped out one by one. Don’t go into battle unless you know you can win.

I lived in Alaska for four years and don’t underestimate what she was able to do up there. The state may be low in population but their politics are tough.

I have been so angry at the capitulation of the GOP and the RINO candidates we end up with, that I would love to see her show them how things need to be done. Heck, I will probably donate to the cause.

Thanks so much for posting that newspaper article from George Romney. It further adds to my point that the default position of the Republican party isn't really Conservative at all. Sarah Palin, Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater are, in fact, the outliers.

Jim Robinson has posted that Free Republic is not a Republican site but is one for Conservatism and for grassroots activism. I don't think it's a matter of taking the Republican party back...no, it's time to take it over!

Go Sarah Go!
