Skip to comments.Betting the Farm on Sarah Palin
Posted on 07/02/2011 8:39:06 AM PDT by onyx
The country is running out of time. We’re broke, nationally, and as the spendthrifts in Washington, D.C. try to discover new and increasingly dishonest, disguised methods by which to hide the scope of the impending disaster, we should be considering what it means for we, the people.
There can be no doubt that they are driving us to complete and unrecoverable collapse. I can describe to you what I believe their motives to be, but that doesn’t change the reality, and I’d rather focus on what we can do about it. Time is getting short. It’s possible that there will be no elections in 2012, because we may have collapsed into chaos and anarchy. If hyperinflation strikes, as some now believe it will, the country is over as we have known it.
Let’s imagine, for the sake of argument, that we can stave off complete collapse at least long enough to hold the 2012 elections. What should be our electoral goal, as a people? We must first stop the hemorrhaging and apply a tourniquet to this nation’s deep, spurting, arterial wounds. That tide of blood, the lifeblood of our economy, and our future, cannot be stemmed by band-aids and a series of well-meaning but undisciplined politicians. We need a determined practitioner who is willing to crack the chest and do the serious, nation-saving surgery. As it stands, there is only one Republican under consideration who fits that description: Sarah Palin.
My own farm is slowly failing. While part of it is the drought, and part of it is the stupidity of the Texas legislature, and its unwillingness to put Texas horsemen on par with those in neighboring states, but more importantly, it is the general economy. The price of fuel, the shrinking value of the dollar, and the general lack of disposable income nationwide is killing the horse industry in Texas. Nobody buys horses when they’re choosing between fuel for their vehicle, and food for their table. Soon, at my farm, it may be a choice between feeding horses and eating them.
Barack Obama is gutting this country, and he’s doing it by intention and malice aforethought. There can be no more claim that he is accomplishing this all due merely to gross incompetence. I don’t think it’s possible to be that incompetent. Even a blind pig finds an acorn occasionally. This guy doesn’t seem to notice a truckload of them. He sees them, but he evinces the willingness, the naked determination, to ignore them.
There’s not much desire on the GOP side to do anything better, or at least no willingness to fight to press these issues. Boehner and Cantor may be ‘really good guys,’ but that’s not enough. We need fighters. We need warriors. We need somebody to realize that the person whose ass needs kicking is the guy boasting about being the guy who says he will “decide whose ass to kick.”
We cannot compromise or otherwise weasel our way out of this mess. There is no short-cut back to prosperity. It’s going to take daring, disciplined leadership. It’s going to take a leader that can look to all the people in the country and say, approximately: “You, the people, must lead us out of this mess, and it starts with a commitment to what is right, rather than what is easy.” Too few of our politicians are willing to get tough in the name of the country and its future.
This is why I am betting the farm on Sarah Palin. Her shortened term as Governor of Alaska stands as empirical evidence that she knows how to lead, is willing to confront difficult problems, combat the media, fight entrenched interests, and rally the people to demonstrate the better angels of their nature.
I will support Sarah Palin, if only she will run, and I am holding on, a little longer, with all I can, for the future of my country, and the future of my farm, in the hope that she will shortly answer the call.
I’m willing to wager those putrid trolls will eventually get the zot. They can’t help themselves from soiling threads.
Nice dream, though.
As well they should. The behavior that some of them exhibit is frankly anti-social, and has no place on an adult forum.
I actually tried to reason with one of them the other day (I know, I know). My simple point to them was that most of us don't go out of our way to incessantly badger and insult those who support other candidates, by visiting those threads and posting mocking and demeaning things about those candidates.
I interact with supporters of other candidates on the forum, and do my best to convince them that my candidate is the better choice. I freely admit that I'll also frequently list off what I feel are the negative attributes of their candidate of choice, but the thing is, I don't feel compelled to open every thread devoted to news about another candidate, with the sole intention of posting nasty things about them.
That's trollish behavior, and I won't engage in it. I really wish that others would do the same. You've got disagreements with Governor Palin? Fine, let's talk about them. I really have no problem with that. Isn't that what the forum is here for?
Well, the graduation party is over, and it was a nice day for my niece.
Everyone talked about the beautiful weather, movies they saw, sports, etc. and avoided POLITICS.
The cousins got to spend time together, and they were happy.
When you have liberals in the family, you realize what this country’s up against...
Well, said! Run Sarah, run!
I read her resignation speech. You are as blind as a bat.
Good! Glad that politics was avoided!
I know that my youngest son has a liberal inlaw but he rails on her.
Hi Victoria! She’s going to run and with our help and prayers, she will win!
I think so, too. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Per Jack Wheeler, he has been told she will announce her candidacy on JULY 4TH.
[He had no way to confirm this, but that was what he was told by a close connection to Sarah.]

Or, calculate the local time yourself from THIS CHART, posted on www.timetemperature.com:
Does she watch MSNBC? One woman I know who is a liberal faithfully watches MSNBC, and she believes everything they say. She HATES Fox News, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, & everyone on the channel because MSNBC trashes them everynight.
My liberal brother-in-law watches Jon Stewart every single night. He even paid to see him appear at a local theater.
Thanks for the blessing! Enjoy this Independence Day and the many that we have to come (Lord willing).
That is because zombies like you wan to claim Palin is God's gift to humanity while equally good Christian candidates like Michele Bachmann are spawns of Satan.
A Rush Limbaugh parody designed to be absurd isn't any more absurd than some of things you post.
Never said anything of the sort.
FYI I thought you had already been banned?
No you didn’t say it. But why did, rs, say it? tsk, tsk
Not everyone is called to LEAD. We all have a different destiny. SARAH is a born leader. When SARAH speaks everyone listens and that includes those who are jealous of her and those who have ‘issues’. As we know, when there is a thread on SARAH, the ‘issue’ crowd appear on it because they want to be a part of anything SARAH. She’s like a magnet!
NO other politician has that going for them!
