Difficulties are never ending in the conservative movement. I am a member of Team Sarah. I joined because I supported Sarah Palin. Now as time has passed she has really disappointed me over the past several months which goes to show you it is near impossible, it seems, to get past the personality and oration ability and pick a person for office that deep down has one thing, one goal and that is cleaning up Washington DC.
When Sarah is determined to support McCain for the senate seat again she lost me. I have been told in her book she explains why. I don’t care why or how good a friend he is, he is a liberal, a person we can not count on by any stretch to be constitutionally conservative. He is not to be trusted. If she has America’s best interest at heart completely she would not support him.
The problem with this system is to many people are more concerned in paying back favors that doing the right thing regardless of loyalties. The one and only loyalty should be America and the Constitution. McCain is a political enemy. I am tired of his hero label. He served bravely as a Navy pilot for which I respect him for but, that is not qualification to be a US Senator.
Sarah is getting caught up in a personal battle over her son’s mental disabilities. She is falling into the hands of those that would bring her down to their level. If she is going to run for POTUS she has to be tougher and ignore the attacks and show she is better than a dog fight in the streets. The more you pay attention to the distracters the more credibility you give them. Sticks and stone will break your bones but words... We heard this all out lives. Alaska is one thing but this country as a whole is another issue.
Sarah is a great speech maker and a good debater. She is good looking and has a down home ability about her to draw the common man. That is her appeal but, she needs to give us plans and ideas as to what specifically she is going to do. She talks about what she did in Alaska but not being a citizen of Alaska I don’t know but I understand it was good stuff.
I wonder how she did it all in only her first term as Governor which she did not complete which again in my opinion was a mistake even though I understand her reasoning. If her goal is to run for PROTUS then it was a mistake.
I really am sad about this because I was really was a big fan and was encouraged but, she is sliding down to the level of so many before her. If she supports McCain then she supports his policies and that will not get a vote or continued support from me. I thought she was independent from any obligations to anyone and she was running on a clean slate that was strictly her own.
I will half to see what happens between now and 2012 but as it is now I can not in good conscience vote for her for President.
