Sarah Palin Rides To Sound Of The Guns: "The 2012 Campaign Begins Here..Game On"

Ground Zero for the fight against the Leftist Agenda has to be Madison, Wisconsin.

The bribing of special interest groups like public employee unions with taxpayer dollars in exchange for votes, a hearty kickback to the Democrat's campaign coffers and the use of muscle for phone banks, precinct walking and rent-a-mobs is an old, established sport in Blue cities and states and a major reason why many of them are flat broke.

It's in Wisconsin, a formerly Blue state that the first serious attempt to undermine the Democrats' Tammany Hall model occurred, because the people of Wisconsin realized that they simply couldn't afford to continue along the present course.

It's here that a courageous governor, Scott Walker, turned the tide, along with Republican legislators who faced screaming mobs and death threats.

Governor Sarah Palin turned up to join the fight today in memorable fashion with one heckuva speech. There were 8,000 to 10,000 Tea Party supporters who came to hear her in spite of the cold, the wet, and a hostile, expletive-hurling rent-a-mob armed with bullhorns,signs and noisemakers who lurked on the outskirts of the crowd.

Fifteen minutes was all it took her to get to the heart of the matter and take the fight directly to Obama and to those establishment Republicans who've forgotten why they were elected. In a sense, it's exactly what she did in Alaska on a larger scale. taking on th eGOP establishment in her own state and winning big when no one gave her a chance to.

It was a perfect stump speech, and it convinced me that the time of indecision is over and she's going to make a run for the White House.

Here's the transcript ( emphasis mine):

Hello, Madison, Wisconsin! You look good. I feel like I’m at home. This is beautiful. Madison, I am proud to get to be with you today. Madison, these are the frontlines in the battle for the future of our country. This is where the line has been drawn in the sand. And I am proud to stand with you today in solidarity.

I am here today as a patriot, as a taxpayer, as a former union member, and as the wife of a union member. What I have to say today I say it to our good patriotic brothers and sisters who are in unions. I say this, too, proudly standing here as the daughter of a family full of school teachers. My parents, my grandparents, aunt, cousins, brother, sister – so many of these good folks are living on teachers’ pensions, having worked or are still working in education.

A pension is a promise that must be kept. Now, your Governor Scott Walker understands this. He understands that states must be solvent in order to keep their promises. And that’s what he’s trying to do. He’s not trying to hurt union members. Hey, folks, he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions! But unfortunately some of your union bosses don’t understand this, and they don’t care if union members have to be laid off. No, they want to protect their own power, and if that means forcing a governor to lay off union workers, then so be it; they’ve proven that is fine with them. But that’s not real solidarity! Real solidarity means coming together for the common good. This Tea Party movement is real solidarity!

Well, I am in Madison today because this is where real courage and real integrity can be found. Courage is your governor and your legislators standing strong in the face of death threats and thug tactics. Courage is you all standing strong with them! You saw the forces aligned against fiscal reform. You saw the obstruction and the destruction. You saw these violent rent-a-mobs trash your capital and vandalize businesses.

Madison, you held your ground. Your governor did the right thing. And you won. Your beautiful state won. And you know what – people still have their jobs because of it! That’s courage. And that’s integrity. And that’s something that’s sorely missing in the Beltway today.

Because let me tell you what isn’t courageous: It’s politicians promising the American voters that, as we drown in $14.5 trillion debt, that they’re going to cut $100 billion out of this year’s budget. But then they cave on that and they reduce it down to $61 billion after they get elected. Then they get in there and they strike a deal and decide, nah, they will reduce that down to $38 billion. And then after some politics-as-usual and accounting gimmicks, we find out it’s not $38 billion in cuts. You know that $38 billion – we don’t have it; we’re borrowing it. We borrow from foreign countries to give to foreign countries, and that’s insanity. We find out it’s not even $38 billion; it’s less than $1 billion in real cuts. Folks, that $352 million in real cuts – that’s no more than the federal government is going to spend in the time it takes us to hold this rally today! That is not courage; that’s capitulation!

Now, there’s a lesson here for the Beltway politicos, something they need to understand; the lesson comes from here in Madison. So, our lesson is to the GOP establishment first. And yeah, I’ll take on the GOP establishment. What more can they say about us, you know?

So, to the GOP establishment: if you stand on the platform, if you stand by your pledges, we will stand with you. We will fight with you, GOP. We have your back. Together we will win because America will win!

We didn’t elect you just to re-arrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic. We didn’t elect you to just stand back and watch Obama re-distribute those deck chairs. What we need is for you to stand up, GOP, and fight. Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women’s hockey team—those champions—maybe I should ask them if we should be suggesting to GOP leaders they need to learn how to fight like a girl!

And speaking of President Obama, I think we ought to pay tribute to him today at this Tax Day Tea Party because really he’s the inspiration for why we’re here today.

That’s right. The Tea Party Movement wouldn’t exist without Barack Obama.

You see, Candidate Obama didn’t have a record while he was in office; but President Obama certainly has a record, and that’s why we’re here. And hey, media, it’s not inciting violence and it’s not hateful rhetoric to call someone out on their record, so that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to do it to be clear. That’s right: we’re here, we’re clear, get used to it!

Candidate Obama promised to be fiscally responsible. He promised to cut the deficit; but President Obama tripled it!

Candidate Obama promised that fiscal responsibility; but President Obama flushed a trillion dollars down the drain on a useless “stimulus” package and then he bragged about the jobs he “created” in congressional districts that don’t even exist! That’s right; on this, White House, you lie. The only thing that trillion-dollar travesty stimulated was a debt-crisis and a Tea Party!

Now, the left’s irresponsible and radical policies awakened a sleeping America so that we understood finally what it was that we were about to lose. We were about to lose the blessings of liberty and prosperity. They caused the working men and women of this country to get up off their sofas, to come down from the deer stand, get out of the duck blind, and hit the streets, come to the town halls, and finally to the ballot box. And Tea Party Americans won an electoral victory of historic proportions last November. We the people, we rose up and we decisively rejected the left’s big government agenda. We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to pay for it.

But what was the president’s reaction to this mandate for fiscal sanity?

Less than 90 days after the election, in his State of the Union address, President Obama told us, nah, the era of big government is here to stay, and we’re going to pay for it whether we want to or not. Instead of reducing spending, they’re going to “Win The Future” by “investing” more of your hard-earned money in some cockamamie harebrained ideas like more solar shingles, more really fast trains – some things that venture capitalists will tell you are non-starters. We’re flat broke, but he thinks these solar shingles and really fast trains will magically save us. So now he’s shouting “all aboard” his bullet train to bankruptcy. "Win The Future"? W.T.F. is about right.

And when Wisconsin’s own Paul Ryan presented a plan for fiscal reform, what was Obama’s response? He demonized the voices of responsibility with class warfare and with fearmongering. And I say personally to our president: Hey, parent to parent, Barack Obama, for shame for you to suggest that the heart of the commonsense conservative movement would do anything to harm our esteemed elders, to harm our children with Down syndrome, to harm those most in need. No, see, in our book, you prioritize appropriately and those who need the help will get the help. The only way we do that is to be wise and prudent and to budget according to the right priorities.

Now, our president isn’t leading, he’s punting on this debt crisis. The only future Barack Obama is trying to win is his own re-election! He’s willing to mortgage your children’s future to ensure his own. And that is not the audacity of hope. That’s cynicism!

Piling more debt onto our children and grandchildren is not courage. No, that’s cowardice!

But did you notice when he gave that polarizing speech last week there was a little gem in the speech. Maybe you missed it. But he spoke about the social contract and the “social compact.” Well, Mr. President, the most basic tenet in that social compact is adhering to the consent of the governed. That would be “We the People.” President Obama, you do not have our consent. You didn’t have it in November. And you certainly don’t have it now. You willfully ignored the will of the American people.

You ignored it when you rammed through Obamacare.

You ignored it when you drove up the debt to $14.5 trillion.

You ignored it when you misrepresented your deficit spending.

You ignored it when you proposed massive tax increases on the middle class and our job creators.

You ignored is when you went to bat for government-funded abortions and yet you threw our brave men and women in uniform under the bus, Mr. Commander in Chief.

You ignored it when you got us into a third war for fuzzy and inconsistent reasons, a third war that we cannot afford.

You ignore it when you apologize for America while you bow and kowtow to our enemies, and you snub our allies like Israel.

And you ignore when you manipulate the U.S. oil supply. You cut off oil development here and then you hypocritically praise foreign countries for their drilling.

And when hardworking families are hit with $4 and $5 a gallon gas and your skyrocketing energy and food prices as you set out to fundamentally transform America, you ignore our concerns and you tell us we just better get used to it.

Well, Mr. President, we’re not going to get used to it. Not now. Not ever. You ignored us in 2010. But you cannot ignore us in 2012.

Mr. President, you and your cohorts threw all the hatred and all the violence you could at these good folks in Madison, Wisconsin. But you lost here.

And Madison, you defended the 2010 electoral mandate. You are heroes, you are patriots, and when the history of this Tea Party Movement is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten.

Your historic stand brought down the curtain on the last election. And the 2012 election begins here.

We will take the courage and the integrity that you showed all of America. We will take it and we will win back our country!

God has shed His grace on thee, America. We will not squander what we have.
We will fight for America! And it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin!

It starts here! It starts now! What better place than the state that hosts the Super Bowl champs, to call out the liberal left and let them know: Mr. President, game on!

God bless you, Wisconsin, and God bless America!

This is exactly the sort of speech Sarah Palin needed to make, and exactly what Americans have been waiting to hear. The 2012 election is going to be a fight for the future of America as a free nation, , and Governor Palin has never shied away from a fight. Why would anyone think she's not going to be in on this one?

The Left is scared stiff of this housewife from Wasilla, and with good reason.

please helps me write more gooder!

If she's going to run, it is likely going to have to be as a third party candidate. I just don't see the Republican party nominating her even if she were a shoe in for the win somehow. I think they'd just as soon slit their wrists rather than allow her the nomination. Hopefully I'm wrong. Hopefully they wouldn't exclude someone just because they don't like her. In order for her or anyone else to have a chance, the country has to actually survive until 2012.

Right now I'd say the country has about a 10% chance, mayb less of actually surviving until 2012. Again, I pray I'm wrong.

Assuming the country can survive long enough to have another election and to possibly get the current leaers out, what do you think about a Trump-Palin ticket with Mr. Trump as the Presidential candidate and Sarah Palin as the Vice Presidential candidate?

Watch what happens.

Not much.

Sarah Palin is the one I’m voting for. She wants to unite the Republican party, but if she doesn’t and the party puts up a Mitt or Huck that couldn’t even beat McCain in 2008, then I’ll write her name in and vote for her.

I’m not going to vote for the lesser of two evils when we have a great candidate ready, willing, and able.

B.Poster said...


Thanks for the reply to my post and for answering the questions I posed, however, this leads to additional questions. 1.) You say "watch what happens." What precisely do you think will "happen" that will make Mrs. Palin acceptable to the Republican leadership who selects, funds, and pushes the advertising for the candidates?

1.) While I tend to agree that Mr. Trump is not a serious candidate. The public has been pretty well innoculated against claims regarding Mr. Obama's birth. As such, a serious candidtate probabaly doesn't bring such things up. That is unless Mr. Trump knows something we don't!! A very real possibility, I think.

Furthermore at this time I don't see Mr. Trump being acceptable Republican party elites but that could change. If it does change, he could be the nominee for Presient and Mrs. Palin as VP just might be acceptable to the GOP elite and it would help to keep Mrs. Palin's upporters in the fold. I don't think such a ticket would materialize simply because the GOP hates Mrs. Palin to much.

Someone with the mentatlity of a business man is exactly what we need to lead our nation right now. There have been very few business men who have been as successful as Mr. Trump!! When replying to my post your answer is "not much." 2.) Can you clarify what problems you have with Mr. Trump should he decide to be a serious candidate?

Freedom Fighter said...

Hello Poster,

1. Governor Palin, will never be acceptable to the GOP establishment - neither was Reagan. Events have a way of creating their own dynamic.

Palin was both crafty and selfless in keeping the Tea Party within the GOP tent.If they nominate an establishment Republican, they will go the way of the Whigs. Not being suicidal, I don't think they will.

2. I don't think the public has been inoculated in the least regarding the questions surrounding Obama's birth.Seen the polls on this lately? Nothing short of his real, long form birth certificate with notarized signatures is going to do that, and that's obviously not going to happen or Obama would have trotted it out already.

Best selling author Jerome Corsi of Swiftboat fame has just released a book on this subject that I guarantee you will fan the flames.

3. I don't think Donald Trump is a serious presidential candidate. His business sense is also questionable, as he's gone broke twice. He's also very liberal on the social issues, which is not going to endear him to the GOP base and has far too many associations with Leftist Democrats over his career.

I also question whether he has the subtlety and political skills needed for the job.


B.Poster said...


Thanks for the reply to my post.

1.) I pray you are right and the Republicans will not exclude Mrs. Palin simply becuase they do not like her. While I agree the need to survive is strong, ideology can also be strong.

2.) Jerome Corsi is simply preaching to the choir at this point. His book will probably make him alot of money but it will not convert any one to the position. As for my personal opinion on this, it would appear that Mr. Obama is definitely hiding something but the public as a whole has been inoculated agains tthis position. As such, serious candidates don't bring it up unles they know something the rest of us don't.!! I'd like for Mr. Obama to release the long form of his birth certificate. If Mr. Trump can ger to the bottom of this, that would be awesome!!

3.) Wtih regards to Mr. Trump's business sense I'm aware of one time he went broke. I was not aware he's gone broke twice. Apparently he's recovered. America has for all intents and purposes gone broke. Since Mr. Trump has experience of recovering from this, he may just be the person the country needs as POTUS!!

As for Mr. Trump's social positons, America whether you or I like it or not, is a left of center nation both socially and fically. As such, his social positions will be more in line with the populace than will those of Mrs. Palin or the Republican base. This is the crux of the issue that you, I, the Republican party and the "base" face. We need the base to win but we can't expect to win with only the base. The Republican party compounds its problems because ost of its leadership hate the base of the party!! Mr. Trump's social stances are more likely to bring in independents and main stream Americans than having Mrs. Palin at the top of the ticket would.

"I also question whether he has the subtlety and the politcal skills needed for the job." I tend to agree. My impression of him is he is a "bull in a china closet." I think he is used to being the "alpha" person and this is how he approaches. As POTUS he will not be the alpha. Assuming the country survives long enough to get a new POTUS in place, this person will have to operate in a world where the most powerful nations are Russia, China, and very likely India. Also, any combination of two or more Western European countries will be able to easily out power America economically and possibly even militarily. As it currently stands, most of these countries are hostile to America.

In terms of foreigh relations, the biggest problems America has are its military is worn down and inadequate to meet the needs of the 21st century, at least this is so should it find itself in a conflict with either Russia, China, or probably India and there isn't sufficient funds or technical experties to address this problem in the short to mid term. Also, America is almost universially despised. The next POTUS, assuming the nation survives long enough to install a new POTUS, will have to deal with this reality and mend foreign relations. I'm not sure the bull in a China closet approach is a good one here.

Well Poster, I disagree with your conclusions on a number of points,
(for instance, Gallup shows that 1 in 5 Americans overall and 54% of Republicans feel Obama was born outside this country) but you're certainly entitled.


B.Poster said...

This means 4 in 5 Americans don't believe he was born outside of the country and the 4 in 5 who don't believe this view the 1 in 5 as absolute idiots. 54% of Republicans believe it. This may pose a problem for the Republican party. "Independents" have been effectively inoculated against this issue and will hold it against a party whose "base" embraces this issue. This isn't necessarily going to prevent the Republicans from winning but its certainly not going to be helpful to them.

For what its worth, I think Obama was likely born in the US but is most likely hiding something about his birth. There's any number of theories on this. You are likely famillar with all of them. If he's not hiding something, he'd likely have simply released the long form birth certificate. Now does Mr. Trump know something we don't about all of this? He just might. If he doesn't he endagers his other business interests in pushing this issue.
