I will only speak for myself. I will support Sarah Palin. I don't know who is winning on Survivior, Dancing with The Stars, or American Idol, and I really don't give a damn.

Neither do we...what does it matter though in the context of this thread??



What I care about is a government that has gotten totally out of control, where spending is concerned.


"Has gotten"??? Don't you mean "always has been"? It didnt start with Obama...no matter how much Lonesome Roads beck tells you it did. You think Sarah Palin is any different? HAHA Wow...perhaps someone should introduce you to the internet


I am also concerned about the Federal government's continued encroachment into my personal life.
So then, i assume that you would not want government telling you what to do with your body?



Just so you know, I have never watched a NASCAR race in my life.


So?


I also ignore football, baseball, and basketball. I have better things to do with my time.
And it appears so...you spend your time telling us forum dwellers all the things you dont like to do
....nice



I raise my own food. I read biographies of American leaders, histories of nations, of movements. And yes, I live in the mid-south, proudly consider myself a redneck who believes in God, Guns, and a Free America.



You just created your own double edged sword. You see, the American leaders history of nations, and historical movements, all tell us that the direction in which the GOP and DNC are headed is one that is not admirable or desirable. As far as religion - this country was founded on the basis of "Freedom of religion" but the GOP has indoctrinated Christianity in every facet of this country...its not freedom of religion when a ruling government openly accepts one form of it, but rejects all others.



I live in the Flyonver Zone. Go back and read my earlier post on this topic. And while I only speak for myself, I know a lot of people who tell me they find other things to do when ballgames and NASCAR are on.


Again - who gives a rip about NASCAR and ballgames? Honestly...where's your argument heading?


Here is what i've gained from your utterly inane post:


You love America...but hate anyone not like you.

You don't support Palin because she's different...because she's not different, she spends and corrupts just like any other politician...instead you try to guise your bias with pretty, fluffy words.... when anyone with 1/2 a brain stem can see you're just regurgitating talking points from LoneSome Roads Beck & Hannity.

You don't know what you like. You DO know what you hate. Your life philosophy seems to be "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"

Which is why you embrace Sarah Palin.

Except that you don't realize the enemy of Sarah Palin is nothing more than intelligent, rational, freedom-starved Americans like myself...

So go ahead & side with her...just remember what you're getting yourself into when she throws you, and those like you, under the bus when it suits her needs.

Sarah Palin is disliked in much the same way that Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity are disliked. Neither are politicians, yet they can do more damage to Dems and RINOs than any politician can.

This is why libs and RINOs hate Palin - because she exposes them, and people listen to her.

This is the road I think Palin should pursue. Forget election. Use your talents and popularity to destroy the socialists that are destroying our country - from Obama on down.

But she should not fall for the line they are feeding her - she should not run for office in 2012.

Maybe after conservatives regain the WH, Palin can serve in some cabinet role. This will help her to gain needed experience so she can run in 2016, if she chooses.

What's amusing is people thinking someone would actually save them!
Or could.
Dont feel bad for them, everyone needs a ray of hope.
However unrealistic it is.
They are just a little late finding out we are toast.
It sux when you find out you don't mean squat to them.
No prob. Grasping at straws.
May as well be Limbaugh up there wearin' the dress.

But I'd go with Sarah, its all about the "O",
Same-o, same-o.
Oh heck.
Or, as in mOney, mOney! You betcha!

I was replying to the comments someone else made. Perhaps you should pay more attention to the thread, and actually read the post. It was previous poster who made the references to reality shows, sports, etc.
I didn't say the deficiet problems started with Obama. You put words in my mouth.

We don't hate Palin at all. She was and continues to be a great asset to the Democrats.

seem to have struck a sour note with you, young padawan.

When you say "I have become sick and tired of what our governments spending has become" (I paraphrased)

then you are saying "Im tired of Obama"...at least if one were to read your comments in a traditional sense....if that is not your message, might i recommend articulating your message a little better?

You're only outraged about billions for Americans, but didn't have mind to speak out when it was Billions for Iraqis.

Thats my beef with your argument, and other simpletons who preach it.

So, what is the point? I also recall Obama supporters who had no idea where the federal government gets its money, expected Obama to pay for their mortgages and groceries, and were as dumb as a box of rocks. At least these folks read books, which is more than one can probably say of Obama's supporters in poor areas.

You would make Rush Limbaugh proud. You take two things that have absolutely no connection what so ever, and through the insertion of a third party argument, you connect the two in a manner that anyone who hates Obama would agree with you.

Reading books does *NOT* make someone intelligent.

A person is born intelligent. Someone who is intelligent can read a book and take something FROM IT.

Sarah Palins book is not full of world changing information...its not even full of facts. Its full of HER RENDITION of the Vice Pres campaign.

You are basically reading a sitcom that ended over a year ago.

You'd have more electrical energy firing through those synapses by reading the last harry potter book than you would reading anything like this.

And the fact that you use poor supporters to condemn Obama is just hysterical.

...and you call Obama the elitist.

Dear god. I am not a repub or a dem....but i gotta say its pretty crazy that people support Palin. She knows nothing of foreign policy, and nothing of history. If she were elected president, she would represent middle america in that she would blindly follow whatever her generals and staff told her to do, allow herself to be dragged into corporate boosting wars on ideas of "patriotism" and allow her country to continue polluting and destroying the environment because it garners more corporate wealth, which is "good for americans".

Whats even more frightening than someone as ignorant as Palin holding office, is thousands of even MORE ignorant americans that might vote for such! People who obviously have no knowledge of the true origins of our war in the gulf, or of our prior relationships with osama and saddam, of our prior interventions in iran and iraq, or indeed of any of our true history, such as what the civil war was really about, when it was, what the School of the americas is, what vietnam was really about, or anything else for that matter.

I would say that Ron Paul, Kucinich, and maybe Mike Gravel "say it like it is"...which is often things that most americans dont want to hear. Palin, on the other hand, just gets up and recites sound bytes and catchy phrases and slogans like a parrot, or a bad page out of a propaganda handbook. She has no understanding of why other nations hate us, why our security is now threatened, or what role our foreign policy has played in that, and rather than addressing the justified grievances of our foes, she would prefer to just bomb them for the audacity of being angry at the atrocities we perpetrated upon them in the past.

You imply that middle America does not think for itself. If that were the case, then we would be in supporting what is laughingly called health care reform. There are those of us who would support Palin. Others would most definitely support Ron Paul. It's a bit early to make choices since we don't know who is going to declare.
As far as history is concerned, I will agree that eveyone is not as well versed as they should be regarding Iraq, forgetting that we, at one time, supported Saddam.
Don't forget, though, that throughout history, alliances are made and broken and wars start. Such is the way of governements everywhere. I don't believe you can make a case that the US is any worse than any other country in that respect.
Would Palin make a good president? It depends on how much work she puts into choosing a good foreign policy advisor, as well as being aware of all the issues. No competent leader does all the work. An excellent staff, as well as a strong cabinet, approved by congress (no "czars").

How easy is it to cut out anyone who looks/speaks intelligently and zoom in on those less eloquent?

What a doctored piece of smear-campaign - Im disappointed of how many fall for it unquestioningly.

(The usual disclaimer for the dense: Im no Palin supporter)

Not hard at all. I try to take these videos with a grain of salt.

Question though. If you have absolutely no idea who this woman is, what her positions and policies are, what she's said, wrote, done, or thought... then why the hell are you standing outside a Barnes and Noble with a copy of her book, waiting for her to sign it, and proclaiming how much you want her to be president?

Now as edited as this video probably is, the point is, these are real people, who really are really really ignorant. I don't feel comfortable when I know that there are people like this who are nevertheless allowed to vote. I mean hell, you don't need to know everything about the people on the ballot, but goddamn, show some basic knowledge.

Hell, look at the replies in support of Palin on this thread. Why do they support her? Because liberals dislike her? Becuase she's "a breath of fresh air"? Something about NASCAR? These aren't coherent or logical reasons for anything, much less lending support to someone to become leader of the damn country.

I know why I voted for Obama. And I'm starting to develop a number of reasons i'll support a primary challenge against him if he doesn't alter course i nthe next two years. However I get the very real feeling that most of Palin's supporters support her for no reason other than a vague sense that it's the cool thing to do, or that they're somehow "supposed to"

Take a look at that chick who when asked about which freedoms of hers are in danger, just rambles on with a bucket of completely unrelated four-syllable sound bytes. She doesn't have the first goddamned clue WHAT she's talking about, she just knows that someone told her to say these things, and so she's saying 'em.

These people are obviously less aware, less informed, Im not arguing that. Just like the people in the Obama-interviews on page two.

But both videos on page 1 and page 2 are manipulative hit-pieces that distort fair political discussion. You will see how I called out a hit-piece on Obama today on this thread.

By saying this, you imply that the opposite is true of those who voted for Obama.

And as the videos show us, that is patently false. Some Obama voters even thought Palin was his running mate, for goodness sake. :shk:
