UPDATE: Palin’s Facebook "Political Views" have always been listed as "Conservative"





Update by Stacy: We have confirmed that Governor Palin’s "Political Views" designation on Facebook has always been listed as a “Conservative.” She has NOT recently made any changes to her Facebook profile. This was a rumor that got picked up by us. We apologize to Governor Palin for the error.


Update by Nicole: Last night I posted a report from another blog suggesting that Governor Palin had recently changed her Facebook status from Republican to Conservative. It was a false and misleading report. As Stacy noted in her update to my post, Governor Palin has always listed her Facebook “Political Views” designation as "Conservative.” We have confirmed this fact with Governor Palin’s team.

This rumor arose in part because of changes to the way information is presented on Facebook. As this screenshot and this screenshot show, at one time instead of “Political Views,” Facebook had “Party” as a designation, to which Governor Palin was listed as “Republican Party” in a section on her info page under the heading “Current Office.” That’s why many of us remember seeing "Republican Party" on her Facebook page at one time. The info page now only has "Political Views" as a designation, to which she is listed as "Conservative,” and we all know her political views have always been conservative. There is no designation for “Party” and no listing of “Republican Party” anywhere because she doesn’t hold any “Current [Political] Office.” It’s been this way for about two years now.

I sincerely regret this mistake and feel badly that this false reporting that was picked up by numerous news sites, even internationally.

At Conservatives4Palin our motto is "Just the Facts." I should have done due diligence and checked the facts before reporting a rumor. I sincerely apologize and vow to do better in the future. It’s a lesson I won’t soon forget.

Ok guys … Is this just a minor thing? Or a big deal? I’ll let you speculate on what it means ….

Here’s the news reported by the Sarah Palin Blog:

I was walking through the grocery store earlier today when I received a text message from a close friend asking me if I had taken note of the change on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page.  I confessed that it had been an exceptionally busy day and that I had not looked at Palin’s page today.  My friend then brought to my attention that under the "Info" link, Palin’s political views have been changed from "Republican" to "Conservative".  For a brief moment, it didn’t phase me as I am also a registered Republican but I chose to list "Conservative" on my Facebook page as my own political view because in my eyes, it more aptly describes my values.

I suppose one could draw a multitude of conclusions regarding this status change. I know that I certainly have. You can be certain that any move Sarah Palin makes has been well thought out and is with purpose.  Could she possibly be sending a message to the RNC that they need to strengthen the conservative planks of the Republican party?  Perhaps her promise of "sudden and  relentless reform" as addressed in her Indianola speech and more recently in her October 7th St. Louis speech is a sign that as in the past, neither party is safe from her scrunity.

One thing is for sure, time will tell.

Full Disclosure: We don’t know when exactly this FB status change took effect, but I definitely know at one time Governor Palin listed her "political views" as Republican.

    I think this is big!!!!!!!!!  Why do that? I glade she did it!!

        I don’t believe anyone has seriously analyzed the Dynamics of a Palin 3rd Party run.    I do believe there may be some evaluation going on whether to begin a 3rd party now or gear up for 2016 after the GOP again rejects the Conservative agenda in Spring 2013.   These GOP Elites have got to go —  they are almost a bigger obstacle to restoration than BO and the Dems.   One major consideration is Obamacare and whether the GOP would actually repeal it or keep it from being implemented in Spring 2013.   If O is Pres, they can’t, or won’t.

        The GOP did NOT begin with the 1860 election of Lincoln.   It began in 1852, and took 3 cycles to kill the Whig Party.   However they did not have a prominent National Figure to rally behind.   They DID have a mobilizing issue  –  abolition of slavery.     We have SEVERAL mobilizing issues and an electrifying National Figure to rally behind.

        There was a 3 way race in 1824, when Andrew Jackson won the popular vote, but was screwed in the House of Representatives when the other two candidates made a deal.    BUT, that outcome led to Jackson’s great victory in 1828.    This cycle, Sarah could win a great number of red states even with Mitt in the race.   Could she deny Obama 270 ?    That’s hard to see today, but after a campaign, could a Wisc, NH, ME, WA, or other states with large Independent electorates go her way?   Would MITT’S support completely collapse like the GOP Governor’s candidate in Colorado did last November?

        Only 2 3rd Party efforts were significant since 1860…..Teddy Roosevelt in 1912, and Ross Perot in 1992.     Roosevelt got about 1/4 of the vote, Perot received 19%.     At one time, before Perot self-destructed, he actually led the race with support in the 30s.    IMHO, Sarah’s floor would be approx 25 % nationwide, and she could realistically grow that to the mid to upper 30s, maybe higher if Mitt’s support COMPLETELY collapsed.   She could realistically win the popular vote, but lose the electoral vote, because of the Dem lock on most BLUE states,(CA, NY, MA, IL, MN, NJ, CT, MI, etc)   

        If she denied O 270 and it goes to the House, who would the GOP pick ?    Most likely Mittens.
        BUT……that would set up the new Party perfectly for the midterms, and next Pres election.   For that matter,  a popular vote victory would also set the table, or even a strong 2nd place finish, with a very weak GOP candidate finish.   

        Scenario A    Sarah      38%     Obama    36%   MITT   26%
        Scenario B     Obama 41%    Sarah 38%     Mitt   19%    Other    2%.

        The key factor is Obamacare.    But if she’s convinced MITT won’t scrap O-care, the decision becomes a no-brainer.     GAME-ON  BABY !!!!    No shackles, no restraints, no holds barred, no Mitt……goodbye GOP, hello Independent Conservative Party.

          Iowa4Palin, I really like your thought-out analysis. I really wish she would run. I would rather we just take over the Republican Party rather than form a 3rd party. But however it happens, I don’t care–I just want to take our country back!

          • Iowa4Palin

            Question 1  —   How long does it take to take it over, and replace individual Senators and Congressmen?     You can blow them away in one or two Congressional cycles with a competitor Party.

            Question 2   —   If you try electing new tea party candidates, how long until the leadership changes?

            Question 3  –   How many current conservative GOPs would jump ship to the new Party after reading the handwriting on the wall indicating their almost certain defeat?

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FEMMCN66VHNOXLLJ5QGMDGJGAY Glen C

            I am afraid if Obama gets a second term there will not be a country left to take back; at least not as we know it.

            • http://www.facebook.com/doeruncountryboy Clifford J Cromer

              I agree, Glen, our goal must be 2012 while we still have a voice. We must face our future while "the iron is hot". "We The People" , regardless of party registration, must throw off the yoke NOW of those leading us to destruction. Forget the failures of the past who tried to throw off the yoke. The situation is much different today; we live in perilous times where destruction comes from within. I trust that Sarah Palin  and family are really aware that they hold the future and it isn’t in the program of the GOP and Democrat who are  just holding a pair if deuces.
              LET’S ROLL!

          Pretty cool stuff, Iowa4Palin.  I’d be extremely interested to see her batch of figures and scenarios. She probably has a treasure trove of information we’ll never know about.

        • mystery127

          Interesting analysis!  I wasn’t born here in US but I am a naturalized US citizen and living in one of the bluest state in US.  Learning a lot from all the info that I can get.

          I am just now getting over the seismic shock of Palin’s announcement of at least a 10.0.  I am not going to lose hope and am patiently waiting for God’s divine intervention.  None of the candidates measure to Palin’s presidential criteria and mine too. She fulfilled those benchmark qualities and much more.

        • bjsguess

          This makes no sense at all. Look, I know this is a Palin fan page but you have step back into reality.

          ALL polling shows Palin in Ron Paul territory. She runs far behind Romney, Perry, Cain, and is right there with Newt. Your projections with Palin winning 38% is just flat out absurd. She can’t garner that type of support amongst just Republicans (even if Romney collapsed) – let alone running as an independent. 
          Palin is a polarizing figure that WILL NOT improve her odds by more media. People have already made up their mind about Palin. She would HURT her position by splintering the Repubs/Conservative vote. It would further establish speculation that Palin is all about herself – not the best interest of the country.

          For the record … Romney has said IN EVERY DEBATE that he would grant waivers to Obamacare on DAY 1 and then immediately seek to dismantle it. He has called it a disaster. I don’t know what else people want from the guy.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BONT42STC55M7Y3SS2OHGHAI3Y Mark

            "I don’t know what else people want from the guy."

            How about him apologizing for Romneycare and then going over to the democrats where he belongs and leaving the REAL Republicans alone? That would be a nice honest gesture.

          • Iowa4Palin

            Dear Rombot,

            Mitt is the only GOP candidate who embraced the thinking that initiating an entitlement program was a good thing, in fact his signature achievement.    In addition, he utilized a MANDATE to do it….he personally insisted on the mandate to fund his entitlement program.

            What Flipper says and what he does are generally two very different things.    Wake up.  He has been on more sides of issues than any GOP contender in the memory of man.    Would you bet the life of your first-born child he would repeal O-Care?  I thought not.   Even the Waivers are iffy, might be unconstitutional, and would he really do it?   And what about the Blue states who would reject the waivers ?     C’mon……

            Perot was leading the race before he self-destructed, and he doesn’t hold a candle to SP.   The first legitimate Independent candidate in 100 years, and first female Presidential candidate, would have the opportunity and the forum to champion  fiscal sanity, monetary soundness, the real repeal of O-Care, an assault on crony capitalism, tax reform,and energy independence.   If the American people are exposed to her actual record, you bet she could get those numbers.

      I’ve specifically said for some time — but haven’t read it anywhere else — that Sarah Palin is the one and only person, uniquely, who could, if she were to so elect, destroy the existing Republican Party (at a minimum for this cycle and likely beyond).

      Message to GOP Establishment:  Take heed — you better reconsider and deal with Sarah Palin fairly or you are headed for extinction (the way of the Whigs).

If they let her get her way it would be even worse for the GOP then if they turned her away. At least they maintain some credibillity by having the fortitude to admit a prominent person in their ranks is insanely stupid and unfit to lead.

        I don’t care if obama stays in the white house as long us we the conservatives elect pure conservatives in both houses. If we do that we can stop obama’s train wreck. If we elect Sarah Palin as prez. and if you don’t have both houses of conservatives is just building a house without a solid foundation. That is my honest opinion.

        • 99RanckoFlanso

          Ever yeard of executive orders?  Obama is on a crazy binge signing executive orders that circumvent Congress and his Cabinet is running around creating more and more anti-American, anti-business regulations.  No thanks.  We need Obummer out of the White House ASAP.  He is a very dangerous man!

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

            Obama has signing executive orders as if he had the same emergency authority as President Hindenburg.  From 1930 to 1931, the Chancellor did without parliamentary authority, thus preparing the war for the Enabling act that gave Hitler, as Chancellor, dictatorial power in 1933. The man should be impeached, but  no one has the stomach for it, and of course it is hoped he has only 13 months in office. 

        • Warrior07

          Please take notice of the OWS going on as we speak. Their next move will be rioting in the springtime after the winter break. The rioting will bring obama to declare Martial Law and suspend the 2012 elections and worse.

      • daddybdg

        It’s your fear that will forever have us voting for the lesser of two evils. I’m through with that mentality. Faced with the choices in ’08, I wrote in Thomas Jefferson. Waste of vote? Not to me!

        The Republican Party has morphed into the ‘Democratic-Lite’ party. The party elite hopes to win over converts from the other side, but is oblivious to the potential loss of its base. I wonder if Karl Rove and company realizes they are partially responsible for the existence of the TEA Party?

        Stay tuned for the actions of the Republican Party in the local primaries. I fully expect the TEA Party candidates to get marginal support in their re-election effort. Perhaps even well funded opposition from other Republican candidates. Candidates that will toe the party line. Candidates that will know their place in the party.

        If that happens, I will never again vote for anyone with ‘R’ by their name. NEVER!

          • kinabru

            Rino is a much abused term, I for one am sick of it.  Romney would be our best choice, he is probably one of the smartest of the candidates.  You all are paroting all of the old pat phrases.  As for S. Palin, she is fine where she is at, for president, no way.  I am a republican, but am not liking the t party telling me who I should and shouldn’t vote for, I don’t like them dictating what should be done, they can be a group that advises, but to threaten what should and shouldn’t be done or you are out, is not right either, that is bullying.

            • mr_charlie

              romney the smartest? I don’t think so, newt is by far the most intellectually gifted one of the group, that said, he is unelectable because the media has the sheeple convinced that newt is the devil

                That could be changed with a Palin endorsement.  I personally like Newt out of all listed – he is very intelligent, knows how the congress operates, and he always is underestimated by the Democrats. As for the ‘personal’ baggage- so what – who in this day and age is lily white.  I would much rather see him in there as Romney or Perry and I don’t think any of the others really has a chance.

              • kinabru

                I like Newt as well, I could go with him, right now the flavor of the month is Cain, the T party is backing him, why, Cain was with the Federal Reserve board in Kansas and said that the gov. should take over all the banks, isn’t this against the T parties creed.

                • jeremiah black

                  Yeah, Romney and Cain both love nationalizing the banks, and strong central economic planning, big government, and bailouts, and TARP and everything else.  They are establishment to the core.  Newt has proven himself to be awful.  He did nothing during his time as speaker of the house except expand government.  He also wants a federal health care plan- a total Obama lite. He can throw out some nice lines in a debate, but remember he is a big government con man who’s telling you what you want to hear.

                  The fact that the leading repubs are Romney, Cain, Perry, and Newt tells you all you need to know that the Tea Party is over.  Only Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, and Bachmann have anything remotely approaching tea party creds.  And I’m still not sure what to make of Palin’s high praise of McCain- the biggest liberal RINO of them all.  I guess she used the establishment when she had to to get herself out there, but it doesn’t look too great in my opinion.  But she’s not running anyway, so it doesn’t much matter.

                  Seriously, if after all that Tea Party furor for the last 3 years, our "top tier" choices are still Romney, Perry, and Cain, and Newt, then it shows that conservatism will NEVER penetrate the GOP establishment.  Time for a new conservative, constitutional party for sure.  Breaking the GOP is the only way to save this country.  They can only be counted on the destroy it at a slightly lesser rate than the dems.

              Romney made C- grades up through high school. Then was "accepted" to Harvard, where once you’re in, you never make below a B(grade protection/padding). Has he released SAT/LSAT scores that qualified him to be accepted to Harvard and Harvard Law School? Has he released details of his participation/contributions/genesis in all the "deals" he "created jobs at companies" at Bain? How much was he really involved or was he a figure head signing off on the ingenuity and grunt work of junior staffers? Can he explain why Hugh Hewitt(who wrote romney bio) would brag to Mark Halperin et al he interviewed on the radio in 2007 that Mitt Romney’s worth is really "in the billions"(not the $250 million he states)? What is romney hiding? Did he technically lie about his true wealth in order to be more politically acceptable to the base and or to hide what companies/projects he invested in and with whom-Soros)? And what type of return did his offshore funds earn in the crash of 2008?  Has he released his emails while governor of MA? Why not? Governor Palin did. When setting up Romneycare he shoved 50% of the cost onto the Federal Taxpayer. Why is that? Why hasn’t 2008 romney supporter/endorser Herm Cain or romney/rove stalking horse Michelle Bachmann asked Romney about this?

              Romney may be smart but he is evil and corrupt. Those are not attributes I don’t want in elected officials. He is about as much of a REAL Republican as Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. Please leave the GOP  ASAP and find a political party that worships big intrusive government like Romney does. I think the democrats would welcome you with open arms.

            • JApost

              Your boy Milt Romney doesn’t really believe obama is terrible for the economy or terrible for America or that there’s any real danger of *gasp* Obama winning a second term. Based on his record he believes pretty much what obama believes. Most of Romney’s colleagues in the hedge fund world funded and are still funding Obama’s campaign.The truth is that Romney and all his fellow like-minded hedge fund mgrs know that nothing Obama has done hurts their wealth.  In fact they’ve done quite well. They all knew that the 9-14-08 crash was an orchestrated, controlled and contrived artificial crash, and once initiated they jumped on and shorted the Dow and SP for massive profits down and knew to pull the trigger in March 2009 for the ride back up.  Its the same with karl tokyo rove and all his fellow GOP politicos/lobbyists/strategists that served in the bush-43 WH, the most incompetent gop president in history. They’ve all made tens of millions "consulting" their crony capitalist clients during this oh-so severe "economic crisis", delivering to them special access and favortism. And the worst is your fox-romney-establishment-gop-news channel teleprompter readers. Probably the worse farce ever presented as journalism. Now you go be a good GOP Establishment nancy-boy and type tokyo rove and mittwipe talking points somewhere else.

             RINOS are all conservatives since they want to "conserve" the status quo of HUGE INTRUSIVE UNCONSTITUTIONAL government. What we need is REAL Republicans elected, people who will uphold their oaths of office to support and defend the US constitution. There are only two REAL Republicans running for POTUS and they are Gary Johnson and Ron Paul. All the rest are infiltrator RINO democrat-lite conservatives.

        Since Romney and BO are over 95% identical in their political philosophies and Sarah Palin is about 90% the same as BO, I would vote for Obama before I would vote for either of those two fake-Republicans since the taxpayers would not incur the cost of moving-out one family from the White House and moving in another. And I am an elected Republican office holder.

        I know in some states you can register as a conservative,  Hannity for example , so maybe she can run as the conservative candidate.  I don’t know how she can endose any of the current candidates as they are not completely conservative and still retain her conservative stripes so to speak.  If she does not endorse one of them they will black ball her in the next elections cycle.

        Wow, JN, good job.  Do you think any other candidates will help her build a new party?
        That’s what I wonder most:  is any public figure going to have her nerve?

        And who would run as her VP? 
        (Not Rubio; he wants to run for GOP presidential candidate in 2016—-but then, who doesn’t?!). 

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Norton/100002228997007 John Norton

          I ll answer the second Question first   John Bolton will be her VP… A super strong Ticket…

          Your first Question  My guess is we are going to see some new faces that none hve seen …New on the scene would be my guess…The only one near Sarah is Niki Haley…

      • superbird1

        IDIOT!

  • palin45potus

    Here’s the transcript of her conversation with Sean Hannity back in June when she was in New Hampshire.

    Don’t say that she didn’t give fair warning!

    Transcript:

    You know, a year ago I would’ve said “Please don’t even consider third party. We’ve got to shore up what is good and strong and principled within the Republican Party and we’ve got to run on a Republican ticket, stand strong on the planks and a strong platform that is the GOP.

    ”Well, I think conditions have changed in this last year where, after the November midterm elections, we swept in a new crop of hard-core, fiscal conservatives with a lot of common sense, who had solutions that they want to see applied in order to get the economy back on the right track.

    Well, too many in the GOP are still resistant and resisting of that movement of this new crop of common sense conservatives.

    And if they’re not careful in the GOP, there will be a third party rise up, just like back in the day when the Whigs finally went away and Republicans finally rose up.

    That is what the GOP should be fearing today, is the electorate will get fed up with business as usual in the GOP and a third party will rise up.

    Not that I want to see that, because I still have beliefs, strongly that the GOP planks are best for our country. But, they have, just the machine that runs the GOP has got to be very careful.

    • angie_conservMN

      I just sat down and watched The Undefeated, and now more than ever, *if* this could happen, and enough of us are teed off enough at the RINO elitist establishment, I truly think Sarah could very well be the one to pull this off.

      • http://www.facebook.com/doeruncountryboy Clifford J Cromer

        I agree. Also, there are many Democrats that are unhappy with their party and President; good sound people who will listen to Sarah’s message; who will listen to "We The People". The O4P will be a force that changes minds.  LET’S ROLL.

        • JApost

          And the recent polls where Sarah is clobbering obama with independents and the poll showing her taking 40 percent of democrats if she runs against obama in the dem primary.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O2JZVOLZP3CZ3PZXJECJ2EETBA Mountain

        You’re not crazy, AR, and I actually remember hearing Sarah say those words on Hannity’s show. 

        I am scared about this third party idea.  But if GOD is leading her to do this, then God will help her WIN!  O Lord, be in this effort and help it succeed and  be GOOD for America!

        • http://www.facebook.com/doeruncountryboy Clifford J Cromer

          Mountain don’t be scared just because Ross Parot gave third party a bad name. Conditions have changed dramatically. People on both sides of the isle are screaming for something better than what we have. Why do you suppose Sarah can gather in 10,000 to learn of a better way.

          • Kalena

            For those of us old enough to remember the Perot run in 1992 (I voted for him, I was pissed off at the GOP even then), Perot probably would have won that election.  I don’t think he intended to win, thus he got crazy mid-election cycle, withdrew, claimed someone threatened his daughter’s wedding, etc.  If he had not done something that crazy during the election, he probably would have beaten both Clinton and Bush 1.  His half hour infomercials were terrific.  He was preaching downsizing the government back then.

            • jerseymark

              Except that his choice for VP was terribly weak and it hurt his chances big time.

            • LostinLA1

              I agree with you.  I think Perot could have won in 1992.  I do believe he was leading in the polls and he won at least one debate that I can remember.  It was his withdrawal from the race and then re-entering the race that did him in.  Plus, Jerseymark is correct: Perot’s choice for VP was not a good one.  The Admiral was ill prepared for the campaign.

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GPKINCUOPQI3P2JM5PGIDBS56M Sharon

              I live in Dallas, TX and knew the man to be eccentric.  That is why, even though I appreciated his platform, I wouldn’t vote for him.  I was at a class party for a private school one of my children attended . The lovely hostess gathered the children and told them they could play in the creek but could not go past a certain tree because Mr. Perot’s bodyguards would shoot them.  Perot has been well known to be paranoid.  If I were the opposition and I wanted Perot to pull out of the election, I would have planted a threat to his daughter’s wedding.  That would and did cause him to pull out.  I think it was a political dirty trick.  I must say he was correct about many things, however.

              • Betsey_Ross

                I hear ‘ya Sharon.  I knew some very upset Democrats that voted for him along with many Conservatives.  Everyone was PO’d back then, but nothing to what it is like right now.  There’s a lot of rage and anger out there that neither party seems to understand.  Sarah seems to be saying the things that get attention plus she draws people in to her so that she gets her common sense things heard.  This time it is very, very different.

            • SALLYFARRAR

              Yes, you remember Perot’s run correctly. He was winning until he sort of went crazy and started do all sorts of nutty things. Some of us wondered if he was being blackmailed or threatened or something. The bottom line is, he could have won that thing.

          You have to remember that in 1992 Perot came across as a nutjob,  picked a VP that had one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel – and both parties and their candidates were in better shape re the economy and their public perceptions – and NO wars — the other comments in this string are all correct

      • SarahFan

        I too had a suspicion that she was up to something but how would she pull off a third party run and not split the votes to end up electing Obama. She has even said she will not run as a third party.I just can’t fathom how it could work?If she could do it somehow I would be fully on board but there are too many questions to see how it could go that way?

          She may not run as a third party but she might answer the DRAFT positively.

    • colint

      A few days ago I suggested that if a new party is formed to run for the 2014 election it should be called the American Conservative Party and not the Tea Party which has some negatives. As well as Republicans it could also attract Independants and some Democrats who are for fiscal responsibility and national security providing social issues are not in the party platform . There are prolife supporters in the Democratic Party and there should be a place in the Conservative Party for those who support its ecomomic principles but are pro choice.The Nation is in danger of collapse over economic issues not social issues.

          Definatly not for 2012 election as it  would split the vote and benefit Obama and the Democrats. If organization starts early in 2013 and the new party states that it will be based on conservative fiscally sound policies and national security there is time for find Conservative candidates to replace encumbant RINOS and persuade Republicans to support the new party.

    • Massachusettspalinsupporter

      don’t you think she would probably one as an independant use smaller third parties in different states for example in NY there is a Conservative and RTL party correct? BTW sorry about Yankees

      • danielvito

        Not sure how it would work. The two main parties republicans and democrats have made it almost impossible to get on the party in most states. Maybe, you rollup some existing parties that already are on ballots in some states. For example, the consitutional party or libertarian parties change their charters and become the national conservative party.

        • jerseymark

          Not true. It is all defined and doable. There are always several parties on the ballot.

        virginiagentleman1, i really hope this is the start of a movement. When you have the establishment republicans forcing Romneycare on us, it’s time to do major change.

        Now in the past Sarah has said she wouldn’t do third party, maybe, something has happened that really pissed her off and she is open to that possibility now.

      Well, we just know that people like Rush would go crazy if she ran as a Conservative.. cause Obama would win. The thing is, what could people like Rush really do about it? He couldn’t honestly support Romney anymore… he’d have no choice but to support Sarah. And if all conservative talk show hosts supported her, which they’d have to, who knows what could happen…

      • danielvito

        Stephanie, 40% of the country is conservative not republican. Is their any difference between Romneycare & Obamacare. My view is no. If Sarah ran against those two candidates she would beat them.

        Crony Capitalist are in both the republican & democratic parties!

        • http://twitter.com/bop8709 Stephanie

          I agree, Dan.I know many on this site are certain that a third party run would ensure an Obama win. But really, we’d have Rush, Hannity, Levin, all the conservative talk show hosts on our side(if they choose Romney over Palin they’re toast).  Romney would be toast, and I think it would be enough to beat Obama in the end. Maybe it’s wishful thinking , but I’d rather wish for a third party than be content with corrupt politicians.

        • caliberty72

          That’s a very interesting thought. People keep bringing up Ross Perot, and some seem to miss that he was there solely to split the Republican ticket. What you just stated is that Sarah would force Oromney & Robama to split the Democrat ticket… a very very interesting thought, indeed!

          Good points, danielvito, that corruption exists in both Parties.

          I dislike Romneycare, to—-but it IS far less dangerous than Obamacare because R-care is strictly for MA, and it involves solely health care. 

          Obamacare, on the other hand, is unfortunately a national POWER GRAB extending far beyond health care:
          - 11 new taxes,
          - 159 new gov’t agencies/ bureaucracies with NO gov’t oversight, and
          - creates 19,500 new IRS agent positions who will be empowered to access each of our savings and checking accounts. 
          (Dear God, help!)

          • danielvito

            Mountain, Romney insituted Romneycare over his entire responsibility, Massachusetts. If he were president he would have done it for the country. All those things you site for Obamcare, would have been the same for Romneycare.

            Obamacare is modeled after Romneycare. Romney’s advisors have said so.

        How could Obama win big? He’s lost the independents, he’s losing his base, he’s lost the guilty whites. Everyone knows all that’s left to do is flush and it’s the end of the USA as we know it. Romney is Obama Lite. It seems to me the person who will win big is the person on the right because Obama and Romney are fighting for the same set of voters. The rich wall street types who would prefer to vote for Romney instead of Palin voted doer Obama instead of McCain because of Palin, they say. So, what’s left? Teheran dissatisfied who are tired of settling. The people who didn’t want a flip flopper, the people who want reform instead of Establishment warmed over and sold with yesterday’s gravy. The man who brought us Romneycare, which morphed into Obamacare cannot beat the woman who will campaign on a platform of heavy duty constitutional reform. I’m sorry, but I don’t see how either Obama or Romney can win here.
