Since she first came on the national scene suddenly as John McCain's Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah has drawn attention from people across the spectrum. Those who like her spunk and energy in standing up for conservative principles love her. Those of the liberal persuasion insult her and act quite nasty to her, a shameful performance that shows just the lack of character that they possess. I think they fear her since they have seen the enthusiasm and the energy of the large crowds which she easily attracts.
I also think that if the National Republican Establishment had warmly welcomed her and had listened to many of the common sense things that she has had to say America today would be in a much better position. Sadly, the establishment decided not to fight for what is right, but instead chose to wimp out and accept a Barack Obama-lite view of America. A most recent case in point is the weak John Boehner's willingness to sell out his conservative House members and the Hastert Rule and give the Democrats and Barack Obama all that they wanted while extracting nothing in return. I guarantee that if the Speaker had the strength of conviction of a Sarah Palin this certainly wouldn't have happened.
While America has been yearning for someone who will stand up, speak up and defend liberty from tyranny, the Republican leadership can't see beyond the Beltway when it examines what it "thinks" of America and what she wants. Sarah, on the other hand, knows and loves the real America, and no amount of insults and evil behavior can break her down.
So, Sarah, I hope your birthday has been a good one and that it is just another of many more to come. And whatever direction you decide to take in the effort to retake America, I know that your heart will be in the right place and there are many of us out here who value your efforts. I've always said that you have more fortitude than most of the male politicians and pundits that America has to deal with daily, and I hope and pray that they might catch some of your spirit. We have a country to save and you have a big part to play in it.
I'm pulling for you and wish you much success in all that you do. Never falter, never waiver and just keep on doing what you do best: speaking up loudly for the return of the Greatness that was America. God bless you on this mission.
