BINGO!

The GOP is our enemy, all pretense are now gone.

The sooner we realize that the better.

Sarah thinks we can shake up the GOP from the inside, if we can't they need to whither like the Whigs before them.

Having Sarah back is sunshine to shake the doldrums from the obama winter blues. Hope. That is what she is. It’s like spring coming early!

Barry wasn’t near the conservative that his mouth pretended to be.

Please tell me more about that.

I reached voting age shortly after the 1960 election so it was with enthusiasm that I pulled the level for Barry Goldwater in 1964 and campaigned with vigor for him. Yes, as he got older, he certainly didn't get wiser but descended into liberalism. That was far from the Goldwater of the mid-60's. Is that latter-day Goldwater to whom you're referring or was there a liberal lurking under the strong Conservative that I perceived nearly half a century ago?

Just realized the amount. $1.2 million is nothing. What a joke. The GOP is purging conservatives and moving left. Palin is not only a day late and a billion dollars short, but futile besides. I’m not blaming her per se, and I know now that Obama would have likely stolen the election even if Palin had run. Lord knows that the GOP would have given her no financial or political assistance.

It is just funny to see her too-late attempt that will come to nothing.

It is over. Obama will wreck destruction on this nation and plant the seeds of our destruction inserting communist civil servant workers at every level of the Federal Govt. I am sure right now they have SEIU leaders going over every high level vacancy with a fine toothed comb to insure they have their progressive representative appointed or promoted to every vacanancy in every Federal organization.

They are going to ruin us with regulations doing an end-run around the Congress.

I admire Palin’s drive but it is a day late and a billion dollars short. We can’t even slow down the rate of collapse anymore.

In the 60s Barry was a big spender. He always liked big government. The social liberalism came later, and may have been senile dementia.

I also campaigned for him in ‘64, which got me in trouble with Pierre Salinger, who was a friend at the time.

EVER!

To the defeatist wing of the GOP.

Because the GOP has gone the way of the Whigs, Not the Libertarians or Conservatives like you or I or Sarah.

Just the Republicans.

Because the stood for NOTHING and now complain to us because we couldn't elect THEIR Milquetoast Mitt.

Need I say, ...with friends like that...

Otherwise, thanks for the quick and courteous reply. I'll confess that I wasn't aware of Barry Goldwater's propensity for big spending by the government back in 1964. Compared to the evil Johnson, AuH20 was surely a skinflint. But since I'm not a fan of relativism, that doesn't let him off the hook.

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.”

If indeed he was only mouthing those words without conviction, then add Goldwater to the list of CINOs. Thanks to your thought-provoking comments, I'll be doing more reading about the Barry Goldwater of that era.

Go, Sarah Go!
A few grand and an early Endorsement from Sarah Palin and you are very good to go for election.
One of the remarkable things about the last election was that no one was pledging money for Mr. Romney, no car titles, no second mortgages, nada. But a smile from Sarah Palin and you are in the race.
We are coming after your discouraged Liberal GOP supporters, and your disillusioned GOP funders.
We would like your money and your ex supporters.
See you at the polls.
Everyone a liberal GOPe talks to is thinking about supporting Sarah Palin and wondering if Sarah Palin can develop an conservative alternative.
Honest government, less government, open government, lower taxes, strong military, cheaper gasoline, secure borders, Pro America foreign policy, support for Israel.. and the conservative list goes on.
Sarah is becoming.

I remember when George Washington threw up his hands and said it was too late, the British had won too many battles, and went home to Mt. Vernon to sulk.

Not to distract from all the cult like worshiping of Sarah but this just sounds like she’s short of funds and is hoping to get back in the spot light to raise a little cash to support the lifestyle that she’s become accustom to. She’s a has been political hack that couldn’t even stay in the actual office that she was elected to. Do you really think that she’ll do anything to “shake up” the GOP? Get real.

I agree.

When and if Susana Martinez is re-elected in New Mexico, for example, she will be in a much better position to run for 2016 than Sarah.

If Sarah had been wiser, she would have REFUSED McBlame’s invitation ....

It would have saved her career if she had done that....

Washington didn’t quit - but most of his men did. And when crossing the Delaware, the other two Generals determined that “conditions weren’t right” and left Washington on his own.

http://freemencapitalist.com/founding-fathers/george-washington-bio/washington-crossing-the-delaware

Excerpt:

Washington crossing the Delaware was a very gutsy move, and turned out to be the single event that shifted the momentum of the Revolutionary War. After suffering heavy losses at Long Island and Manhattan, George Washington found himself in a precarious situation. To this point he had lost the majority of the battles that they had fought, and the summer zeal of the patriots desiring to fight for their independence had faded, and his troops were deserting as the leaves turned colors and fell from the trees.

Almost half of the 5,000 men that remained of his army were ill and unfit for duty.....

You know, it just might be too late, but one thing that you never do in a battle is to give in, or give up. This is exactly how they (the democrats and republican elite) want us to feel, neutered and helpless. For one, Sarah is a fighter. If SHE is willing to stand up and fight, the very least we can do is join her and do everything we can. Will it be impossible? There have been plenty of times in our past that it looked just as dark. Think what the country felt on December 7th, 1941. If that was not a sinking feeling, losing all those men, ships, aircraft, etc., I don’t know what else is. Give up if you want, but keep your comments to yourself. I believe there is still time for true believers among us to pray for God’s help, if we repent and turn back to Him. I doubt the nation ever will. The verse applies to people of God, as it states, “If MY people, who are called by MY name will will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and I will heal their land.” It was spoken to Israel, but I believe it can apply to any nation that was considered a Christian nation, as ours was founded on Biblical principles, almost straight from the Bible in every detail. There is no need to question that we who are believers are also God’s people, and as such have every right to call upon Him.

“Smell the coffee. Sarah will shake the foundations of the rovians and we will damn sure help her do it.”

Too funny, it’s you that needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Sarah moved from Alaska to some pretty nice digs in Arizona, she’s got bills to pay and the speaking fees just aren’t what they used to be. Her 15 minutes of fame have long since past except for those “true believers” that think she walks on water. Why? I’m not sure as she has not really accomplished much of anything and most of the candidates that she supported lost. but never mind, she’s good looking, for a woman of her age, and there’s plenty of white knights like you to put her up on a pedestal and worship her. So have at it, just don’t say you weren’t warned.

First off, I could never qualify for knighthood. Trust me.
I’m a living, breathing, genuine, bonafide mountain mama.

Second. Even YOU must have noticed that Sarah Palin is a generator.

All she has to do is be. All ANYONE has to do is mention her name and the eyes and ears snap to. When she engages, she wins. When she doesn’t engage, she wins. I haven’t seen anyone in my life as THERE as Sarah Palin is.
Even the democrats steal her words...because from HER, they mean something. From them, it’s a blatant attempt to imitate her but it’s hollow and cheap and we see it.
You can think whatever you wish to think. That is your right. All I am saying is the proof is in the pudding. Wait and watch.

The Cristal Bunk-Ball says:

"I got good news and bad news."

The Good News First:
The Republican Party Will Die. Sarah will euthanize it. The Party that was founded to save the Union and Free The Slaves cannot save the Republic and cannot get a vote from the descendants of said freed slaves to save its tired old ass. It has succumbed to terminal wimpery and the catering to special interests that it serves from safe seats guaranteed to it by the Democrat Party, which keeps Republicans cut in for a piece of the action and owns them lock, stock, and perk.

And now for the really bad news.
This will be an ugly death. And a slow one. As the GOP dies at the hands of a Third Party (aka The Sarah Party), The Democrat Party will run rampant for a term ... possibly two. There will be strife. Possibly even blood. The battle to regain a constitutional republic has no guaranteed outcome. Pray. Fast. Get armed and organized. WE are the enslaved minority. Unlike the former slaves we shall have to free ourselves with scant help from the majority.
