Sarah Palin: Don't forget the selfless souls who made our freedom possible

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

As you enjoy time with friends and family today, don't forget the selfless souls who made our freedom possible. Tell your kids the truth about Memorial Day's meaning. We're in a free nation today – free so far – because courageous Americans made the necessary sacrifices to bring us this far. We owe them a debt of gratitude. We had all better take responsibility for the true state of this Union and demand better from those with the influence to awaken the masses. Granted, those with influence may not have it within them, so find it within yourself to help our current generation of vets and active duty military. It's tragic to see for the most part that it is vets taking care of vets today, while too many people sit on their butts taking our military men and women for granted. Vets, active duty military and their families are serving YOU! They're putting it all on the line to serve something greater than self! And yet our warped media and Hollywood elites too often belittle them while they prop up their ridiculously weak "heroes" that a celebrity-obsessed society worships. Talking down our troops, taking down patriotic Americans just trying to do their best and seeking redemption when we screw up... when will the majority rise up and say, "No more." May it begin today, on this Memorial Day when all should be thinking outside of self and doing something to help the families and loved ones of those who died for you. God bless you, and I sure hope God will keep blessing the USA. God hasn't given up on this nation, don't you give up either.

Sarah Palin: Jihad Is On The March

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

It's unfortunate and potentially frightening knowing that everywhere you look today jihad is on the march – even on American soil. Warnings for potential terrorist attacks on our homeland are now stepped up, and with the arrest of dozens of Americans on terrorism related charges, the message is clear that no place seems safe from jihad.
Our military personnel and law enforcement agencies have to be right every time, but the terrorists only have to get “lucky” once to do horrible damage to our country. The threat of radical Islam is real, and it must not be allowed to be ignored.
With the recent capture of Ramadi, ISIS has scored a key victory that is more than symbolic as this death cult takes land that Americans spilled blood and treasure to secure. Make no mistake that this situation could have been avoided had the Obama administration heeded the warnings of military brass that urged them to keep a residual force in Iraq to maintain the peace that America and our allies fought so hard for.
But it’s never too late to do the right thing. That means getting serious about defeating ISIS at the source while remaining ever vigilant at home. As always, our foreign policy must be rooted in the motto Peace Through Strength. For your part, friends, I encourage you to keep in perspective the issues-of-the-day that media chooses to report on. Demand our leaders and the press keep national priorities straight, and don't allow fear to dictate our actions and change our way of life. To cower in fear is to let the enemy win. So stay vigilant, take personal responsibility for the safety of ourselves and our property, support our troops, and learn through history that we only remain free by being brave.
May God's hand of protection remain on this country that has dedicated herself to Him.
