Sarah Palin

So…what have we learned about Sarah Palin?

Well, we have learned that she is ambitious, brave, tough, crafty, stubborn and very human.  She has adjusted her stand when she understood that certain positions were politically unwise and counterproductive (right moves for the wrong reasons?).  She makes some statements about what is God’s will based on her dispensationalist, pentecostal, right-wing evangelical mindset.  She has made statements that are not accurate or particularly truthful.  In other words, she is a politician with all the positives and negatives.

My conclusion (which, I confess could change prior to the election) is that she is just like the others in this race.  So, our choices are narrowed down to two sets of questionable candidates.  Good grief!  What will I do on election day?  At the moment, I am going to write in Ron Paul.  Yes, I’m going to throw away my vote to make a statement.

Here is my prayer:  Dear God, send us someone with integrity who is honest to the bone and will put the good of our nation above personal, special or party interests.  Amen.

    Ron Paul? At least throw it away on a greener candidate.

    We’ll trade you Kevin Rudd for Sarah Palin. The reason? In fact for asking that question we’ll throw in the treasurer “Wayne Swan.” The reason is that Palin is better looking than Rudd or Swan. What better reason could there be. Your war hero, Senator MacCain, had his head screwed on right when he chose Sarah Pain. I’m sure all the femenists (how does one spell femenist) would agree but I think it is blatantly obvious that MacCain picked Sarah Palin for her looks first because it was going to get him the woman vote and it would get him the male vote. Who said you didn’t need brains to be a politician

  3. Excellent analysis. Thanks!

    Sarah Palin: Sincere but misinformed

    I like Sarah Palin. She is sincere and full of energy. But she is woefully misinformed.

    No sex education! Whoops! Teenager has a baby! Shouldn’t that be a clue?
    Brother-in-law is harassing her sister. Palin pulls strings to get him fired. Is that going too far?
    Doesn’t like some of the books in the local library. She asks the librarian if she would mind removing certain books. The librarian indicates she will not tolerate censorship. Palin gets her fired.

    The common thread here is the self-appointed assumption that what I (Palin) decide is better for you than what you decide. Ohh,
    that smacks of totalitarianism! Too bad it hasn’t worked, doesn’t work, and won’t work in the future. Most amazing of all (and tragic) is that some people don’t like to think for themselves. They are mentally lazy, and oh-so willing to let others make these crucial decisions for them. You could see hoards of these mindless drones waving flags and cheering her at the Republican Convention.

    Reminds of the Stockholm syndrome. The captives after a while begin to idolize their kidnappers. “I’m going to restrict what you can say and do, but trust me, this will be good for you!” Yeah!
    Pit-bull with lipstick!
    (And the crowd goes wild!)

    Elelections to me are a choice of evils, who will be the lesser evil? I cannot vote democrate at the national level too liberal e.g. Gay rights, Redefinding marriage;families and Murdering unborn children. The first national election I ever voted in was in 1976. I voted for Jimmy Carter, a man who follows his Christian beliefs. I was in the Military (Marine Corps) at the time he weakened our Nation, and was one of the worst Presidents of the 20th Century, right behind President Clinton. President Carter convinced me to become a Republican in 1978. Then came President Regan a man with some backbone, who did much for our Military and Nation. Now we have another with some backbone, a woman Sarah Palin.
    My prayer is this God will give us what we need and not what we deserve.

    What you are praying for can only be fulfilled by Jesus Christ and He is concerned about His glory as He alone is worthy and His will alone is perfect. These politicians are not God and to expect that they can fulfill your expectations will leave you disappointed among other things.

  6. I’m with you. Ron Paul so far seems the way to go.

  7. Joe,

    She may have backbone, but she doesn’t have the experience, honesty, or time (more on that in a minute) to be president. But she’s not running for president you say. Well look at the facts: 20% of our VPs have ended up becoming President through death, impeachment or other. That’s one in five. Add to that statistic that McCain would be our oldest president – and he is a cancer survivor who went through hell for five years. The odds are pretty high that Gov Palin could become President Palin in no time.

    Which brings me to my “or time” comment. It bothers me that she has five children, one with special needs, a grandchild on the way to her seventeen year old unmarried daughter to contend with while, potentially, running the free world. I know that she has a husband and I’m sure that he is competent, but her family obligations sure look like they are too much for just one parent. And yes, if the roles were reversed and Scott Palin was the nominee, I would say the exact same thing – except with much harsher words.

    Her unfortunate lies aside (what do politicians think happens to all of those cameras that they talk into? of course we’re going to find out their lying when it’s on film!!??!), and her lack of experience, she does not seem to be person that I represents the average American who would put their family above their country. We are, after all, a nation of families brought together by our government. To neglect your own family for personal gain is, to me, the most Un-American thing that you could possibly do.
