Palin's Cry: Cling to Your God, Guns, Constitution
The Winter Haven News Chief ^ | March 9, 2013 | Mary Toothman

Posted on 03/09/2013 12:13:29 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

LAKELAND | Former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin was fired up about God and country when she spoke Friday at Southeastern University in Lakeland. And she was dressed for the part.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate visited the Sunshine State at the request of the organizers of the school's seventh annual leadership forum. She was quite a presence on the stage, in a lipstick-red suit and fierce high heels.

Her passionate talk was peppered with such vibrant cries as "Cling to your God, your guns, your Constitution!" and pleas for the next generation to change the country's moral fiber. "That will make our foundation crumble if we choose to ignore it," she said.

Not one to tiptoe around sensitive topics, Palin got right to the point on reasons she said the country is in crisis.

"Today, look around, and don't you wonder sometimes if, as a nation, we have forgotten God altogether? This is a crucial question," she said.

Palin said the school asked her to talk about hope and resilience. She said she would but "not that Washington, D.C., ‘hopey-changey' blah, blah, blah stuff, but real hope."

Mostly, the 49-year-old hammered such topics as the corruption of Washington, D.C. — "It's a hotbed of cronyism" — and federal spending — "The federal government is bloated, corrupt and out-of-control."(continued)

Can’t believe McCain ran as the ‘Republican’ against 0bama. Both SUCK. We know what 0bama is, but McCain has really tanked. It’s really sad how Palin has been demonized and shut down by the 0bama propagandist media.

Washington DC is a fat bloated lazy delusional corrupt rabid homosexual pig that needs to be put down.

The Tower of Babel builders in Sodom need a reckoning.

I say she’s the most exceptional American woman ever. The day she announced on Mark Levin’s show that she would not run for president is one of the darkest days in recent memory for me.

They are “in your face,” all right. There’s a picture at the link. I like her taste in shoes; it shows what a non-conformist she is, even though she is a faith-filled Christian, stay-at-home mom and a hard-working Alaskan commercial fisherman. What a shame the country let Tina Fey and perky Catty Couric define her.

That, and news of Andrew Breitbart's death. Those one-two blows hurt the Conservative movement badly this past election.

Former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, right, answers questions from Southeastern University's Christina Gard, an assistant professor at the college, during The Forum on Friday. Gard is a former Miss Alaska.

Same here. Still don't understand it. She was the only conservative who could have raised more funds than Romney.

I absolutely adore Sarah and recognized early on she is indeed Reagan-2...and what America needs to survive this communist attack.

The communists also recognized those qualities and declared all out war on her. To the commies, her succeeding was NOT an option and ANY method to stop her was in play.

Like many, her announcement on Levin’s show was absolutely heartbreaking and demoralizing.

I still maintain threats were made against her family and she chose to not run to protect her family.

Threats not unlike Roberts probably received to flip decision on CommieCare.

Threats that were most likely carried out against Breitbart.

I'm in the Amen corner, brother!

She needs to be the next President--not Jeb, Rubio, and any of the other squishes--and I would love to see West as VP.

It is going to take a person of uncommonly strong character to flush out the commies, and to re-establish the Constitution as the rule of law.

The lefties have had their say for fifty years, and we are at the brink of ruin.

Their time is over. Our time has come.

Threats are made against every public figure, and she doesn't seem like the kind to capitulate. I mean, she handled that stalker next door pretty well.

I'm afraid that she was discouraged by the polls. I hope not.

“What say you?”

Still relevant. And dangerous (to Demoncrats and RINO traitors).

I sense a Conservative revolt in the Republican Party is afoot - and will probably pull Palin back into the mix.

Not sure if there is enough time to save the Republic peacefully though.

Last Wends. was the Revenge of Palin on the E-GOP.

Banished metaphorically to the out lands, those that she endorsed stood proud and did their jobs via the Constitution and the Rules of the Senate to be deliberative and challenge the Executive Branch exercising the Balance of Powers.

In a land of Cronyism, Get along to go along and an addiction to K-Street money, she helped a handful of Patroits, and they did what they were supposed to do via our Founders and the Lame-Streams tried to make them into subversives.

The Irony is they ( the old guard, lamestreams ) are the subversives.

It may take 3 election cycles ( google the Jack Abramoff Interview on the David Janda Show and listen to the pod cast ), but this is the beginning...

I wouldn't be surprised of Graham-Nancy is primaries and politically beaten like a rented mule and a recall petition initiated in Arizona (if possible) on McCain.

Even if the next election cycle increases our Senate Numbers to 49, and we keep the House, we essentially run the block on Oboingo.

Now if the Senate pick ups are all in the Palin -Cruz - Paul mode and reinforce them, and thwart the likes of a McCain and his remaining RINO Lackeys it would be a great thing.

The Republic hangs by a thread, and the irony of it is the most influential politico, is a Mom they tried to destroy on so many levels, that maybe all of 5'-4" and 115lbs with more Piss and Vinegar than 500 hacks and lackeys in DC, with the desire, voice, and clarity to foster the election of handful of Patriots that might save the Republic from falling into an abyss.

Don't tell me G_d doesn't work in mysterious ways....

I prefer to believe that the Conservatives have finally had enough of the spineless Republicans and they're starting to stake out their own territory. Rand Paul fired a magnificent opening shot, only to suffer mightily at the hands of Republican bulls like McCain.

My suspicion is that Sarah Palin understands the corruption within the GOP (their treatment of her might be a clue!) and realized that trying to change the party from the inside was a fool's errand. So she has been laying low, studying up on all the issues and waiting for things to improve.

And now, after Rand Paul's rebellion, perhaps Conservatives have found their voice and Sarah might be interested in jumping back into the spotlight again. Sure hope so! Sarah would make a MUCH better candidate for the Conservative Party than for the Republicans.

That's when you know a woman wrote the story. You don't even have to look at the byline.

Also note the reference to her age later in the story. How often does the media report Hillary's age as part of the story?

OK ladies. Guess you figured out I love high heels on a female. It does wonders for their good posture. Think about it. :-)

I couldn't agree more. On that day (I believe it was October 5th, 2012), all hope for a patriotic reformation in this country was extinguished in my household. My wife literally broke down in tears at the news, and was in a 'mood' that lasted for days, afterward.

I honestly don't know whether Sarah ever fully appreciated the tremendous blow her decision was to tens of millions of Americans. It was as though the life suddenly went out of our side, and a sort of frantic anxiety took its place.

I'm certain that they broke out the best champagne in the White House that evening. You could actually feel the collective sigh of relief on the left, and the RINO right.

I've felt for a long time now, that Palin may likely serve in a similar capacity as Jefferson Davis, except this time, the outcome of the war will be different.

Call it a 'vision', or intuition, but I began visualizing that scenario during last year's primary race.
