Sarah Palin: Skipped State of the Union..So did I

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

If you skipped huddling around the TV last night for the State of the Union address because you’ve heard it all before, plus you were just busy with life, well… so did I. Putting the real world on hold to watch the fantasy declaration of “utopia’s-on-its-way” just isn’t efficient.

My truck radio was tuned in though. And driving kids to and from ball games with me negotiating control of the dial allowed me to hear what I’d forebodingly anticipated. Later, reading the President's remarks on my cell phone made sitting on sticky steel bleachers (that exacerbate parents’ sore backs) that much more uncomfortable. It was all confirmation that we HAVE heard it all before – how more government is supposedly the answer. But the extreme hubris and naïveté that emanated from that speech was something new and alarming.

Ronald Reagan said the nine most frightening words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Well, last night's promise to grow even more unaffordable, unsustainable bureaucracy confirms we need rescuing from government like never before.

Consider all the “help” a bloated bankrupt federal government has given us…

In an attempt to “fix” our health care system, government has taken away our health insurance and forced us to buy worse plans we don’t want and can’t afford.

To “stimulate” the economy, government blew a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus scheme that sunk us deeper into such a pile of debt that our great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off. And our government still wants to blow more money we don’t have on “investments” that will incur more deficits year after year.

To “lead” us to energy independence, government throws billions at bankrupt boondoggle green energy gimmicks that conveniently reward campaign donors. Meanwhile, the President stymies development of conventional resources that we actually use and he kills a pipeline that’s guaranteed to provide jobs and reliable energy.

To “create” jobs, government has created more burdensome regulations and requirements and sat back to watch as a record number of Americans simply quit the workforce and gave up trying to find jobs that government can never create.

Speaking of which, while claiming to be concerned with job creation for American workers, our government is trying to ram through amnesty, which will result in a flood of foreign workers competing with Americans for the few jobs there are.

These examples prove that growing government isn't the answer; rather, it’s the problem. It’s tempting to tune out rhetoric like last night's naive promises that this time will be different, but we must not ignore it! Between the hubris of an executive branch governing by fiat, to the arrogance of believing it can spy on citizens’ communications and unleash the IRS to harass people who happen to disagree with the President, it’s now more important than ever for us to press in and pay attention.

Why? Because we’re obviously on a dangerous path, but “We the People” don't have to be “We the Sheeple” and just get shepherded towards a fundamental transformation that’s against America’s will. There’s another way! This nation can shine again with the elbow grease we as individuals can provide! But we mustn’t let a statist-leaning government dull our dedicated efforts. So pay attention. Get involved. Understand the way words are manipulated by politicians who practice to deceive, so that we can DO something about it. For instance, proving he’s immune to irony, the President used the phrase “fairness and equality under the law” at the end of last night’s address. This is the same President who has been arbitrarily amending his signature legislation, Obamacare, practically every other day to give breaks to his cronies and leave the rest of us without “connections” out in the cold. I guess some of us are less fair and equal under Obama’s laws.

The last thing we need right now is more “help” from big government. In this mid-term year, we need to send new leadership to D.C. to get government back on our side and off our aching backs.

Thankfully, November is just around the corner.

2014 Primary Season Has Begun

 



      The constant refrain last year was "I can't wait until 2014".  Well 2014 is now here and we have lots of work to do.  It is great hope is that 2014 will end with republicans holding the House, gaining control of the Senate as well as many other offices on the state level.  It is also hoped that as many conservatives will be elected as possible.  This is where the problem comes in.  The GOP Establishment is perfectly okay with more elected republicans, but not more conservatives.  They intend to devote lots and lots of money to defeat conservatives in primaries across the nation.  To counteract this, conservatives must get active and the sooner the better.  To aid in this I have updated and revamped the voter information on my website.  There you can find links about who is running, election dates, voter registration and more.  The first two primaries will be in Texas and Illinois in March.  If you live in either of those states please begin now to decide who you will vote for in the primary and begin to actively support and promote their campaigns.  March will be here before you know it.

Sarah Palin: Happy New Year

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

Happy New Year! We had a glorious few days to ring it in at our remote cabin near the base of Mt. McKinley. No cell service, no TV; 'twas nice! I recommend getting back to some simplicity that includes just chilling with friends and family like that every once in awhile. Now we’re back home in civilization (which ironically many Outside would characterize as merely more simplicity in yet another, albeit larger, "remote cabin" with indoor plumbing and electricity at least!). First sight upon our return? A mama moose in the yard keeping watch while we were away.

Now to tackle a snowy bon fire to clean up that wonderful clutter of Christmas and our 20' tree! S'mores for dinner, anyone?! I hope you had great holidays!

I'd publicly announced New Year's Resolutions on Fox the other night, but found out technical difficulties prohibited responses to audio, so the interview didn't jib well. So resolutions shall be repeated here to hold myself accountable in 2014:

1) Eat more meat.
2) Help others make the Federal Government as irrelevant in our lives as possible.
3) Live out Coach John Wooden's "Pyramid of Success", encouraging everyone to do our individual part to live with industriousness, self-discipline and selflessness so we, collectively as a nation, can restore America to her exceptionalism. Certainly don't wait for politicians or cultural icons to do it – it's imperative we do our own individual part.

Finally, quite glad to hear the new political year kicked off with Sen. Rand Paul suing the President for violating our rights. With that, I'll add another resolution besides the aforementioned that result in encouraging a growing entitlement-leaning populace to value work ethic and independence, thus being able to live life vibrantly.

Here's #4: Be even more aggressive in calling out media for practicing lapdog laziness. Hey reporters, we know that once Barack Obama got elected you bailed on keeping government accountable; you've been abject failures there. Case in point: Nixon's presidency was over once reporters busted him for allowing his people to spy on political opponents. Today, the Obama Presidency's hallmark is spying (in addition to violating economic and Constitutional liberties), for which you celebrate Barack Obama. Transparently hypocritical, much?

Take a stand, America! You deserve better. Resolve to live life vibrantly by looking to family, faith, and freedom in this new year!
