Governor Palin: This Tuesday, Voting is our Duty and Right

Governor Palin wrote a very important piece on Facebook this evening:

This Tuesday our country’s future is in our hands.

What’s past is prologue. We know what we will get from a second Obama term because we’ve all endured his first term. We know how well he kept his 2008 campaign promises. Do we really believe he’ll keep his 2012 promises?

Do we believe the word of a man who promised he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class, but then slammed the middle class with a massive tax hike in the form of Obamacare (and don’t forget that his own lawyers argued before the Supreme Court that the individual mandate is a tax)?Do we really believe he won’t raise taxes even more on every American in order to pay for his wasteful spending and his crony capitalism?

Do we believe that the same president who increased the debt in his first term by more than all the first 41 presidents combined will suddenly decide to cut the deficit in his second term?

Do we believe that the president whose reckless spending led us to the first credit rating downgrade in our nation’s history will suddenly become a responsible fiscal manager if we reelect him?

Do we really believe that a president who promised us that job creation was his number one priority despite month after month of dismal job numbers now has a credible “plan” for the job growth that eluded him for the past four years?

Do we believe that the same president who shut down the Keystone Pipeline and blocks domestic oil and natural gas development at every turn is somehow going to reduce our dangerous dependence on foreign oil and lead us to energy independence?

Do we really believe that our country’s national security is safe in the hands of a president whose administration denied security and assistance to our consulate under attack on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on America, and then blamed that consulate attack and the death of our ambassador on a “spontaneous” protest over an obscure YouTube video despite all the real time evidence to the contrary?

Do we believe that a president who was caught on a hot mic telling the Russian president that he would have “more flexibility” after his reelection is being honest about his plans for a second term?

We know what we will get from a second Obama term. We will get the same failed policies. We will get Obamacare locked into law without any chance of undoing this dangerous legislation and any chance to seek real patient-centered health care reform. We will get a debt crisis. We will get more inflation and higher gas prices. We will get tax increases. We will get fewer jobs. We will get more small businesses collapsing under the weight of higher taxes and unfair regulation. We will get more corruption and crony capitalism favoring the Obama administration’s friends. We will get less domestic energy development and increased dependence on terrorist sponsoring foreign regimes for our energy needs. We will get a “blame America first” foreign policy that bows to our enemies and snubs our friends like Israel and leaves America and the world less safe. We will get less opportunity and security for ourselves and for our children.

In 2008, Barack Obama promised to fundamentally transform America. And for all his failures and broken promises, that’s the one thing he has delivered on. He’s transformed us from a nation of hope to one of anxiety. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Tuesday is our chance to turn things around.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have offered a credible alternative to Barack Obama’s failed policies. Governor Romney understands how the free market works. His pro-growth economic policies will benefit all Americans. He has promised to move us toward energy independence, deficit reduction, and responsible entitlement reform that honors our commitment to our seniors and keeps faith with future generations. Governor Romney deserves a chance to lead. President Obama had his chance. He’s failed, and we can’t afford to go backwards.

We must also remember the many good Republican candidates who are running for the House and Senate this year. They deserve our support as well. If you are like me, you have watched these campaigns, learned about the candidates, and know where they stand despite the skewed lens of a partisan media bent on keeping liberal leadership in power. We saw the destruction a Democrat controlled White House, House, and Senate brought us after the 2008 election. Our country can’t afford that again. Your vote is the only safeguard against that happening.

On Tuesday, please vote for Governor Mitt Romney and the commonsense conservatives running for office in your states.

Voting is our duty and our right. We must never forget the immense sacrifices generations of Americans, including our brave men and women in uniform today, have made to give us this right. And we must never forget the duty we owe to generations of Americans yet to be born to exercise our right to vote prudently. The White House and control of the Senate is in the balance in this election, and every vote will count.

I firmly believe it is our responsibility to restore this country and secure the blessings of liberty and prosperity for our children, just as it was secured for us. This is our sacred duty to the past and to the future. We will succeed in this so help us God.

God bless you and God bless America.

With an Alaskan heart,

Sarah Palin

    Sarah Louise Heath Palin is and always will be MY LEADER.


    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, Bro!!!!

      VIVA SARAH !


    Sarah…ya know I luv ya but…….I will not vote for Romney.
    Just as I loathe Obama and his unethical, illegal and unconstitutional activities……I don’t trust Romney/GOPe and their campaign promises.
    Romney doesn’t "deserve" anything from me, me being part of that conservative
    base that he continually ignores, patronizes and insults.
    Mitt needed to win my vote, and being ABO just doesn’t cut it for me. 

    If Mitt should happen to have an epiphany and develop some conservative cajones…..then I’ll eat my words with side order of crow……until then, on one hand I’ll be relieved that Obama is out of
    office, and on the other, I’ll be watching Mitt like a hawk.

    Okay Yankee…..bring it on.

      Falling on Principle – Bill Whittle

      Whittle makes a very compelling case as to why voting third party or not voting out of principle is in fact falling on principle and not the best course.

      Even someone like Michael Schuer, who strongly supported Ron Paul during the primary and is extremely critical of the Republican establishment’s views on foreign policy is voting Republican:

      Why does the Democratic Party so dislike Americans?

      • TENCOLE

        I love, love Bill Whittle. Having said that, in your video he says he’ll lead the "revolt" if Mitt doesn’t follow through and repeal Obamacare, and then the video he made previous to this one, he told us how Mitt would be a "great President" and not to worry about voting for him……so, which one should I believe?

        • John_Frank

          No inconsistency.

          Romney does have the potential to be a "great President," providing that he governs as a common sense constitutional conservative.

          FEMA, Moral Hazard, and Devolution

          When asked about abolishing FEMA, Romney said:

          “Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”

          Whittle is also making it clear that if a President Romney fails to cause Congress to repeal Obamacare, then he will lead in the effort to defeat Romney in 2016.

          Many of us are going further and saying, if a President Romney fails to govern as a common sense constitutional conservative, then we will lead an effort to defeat Romney in 2016.

          • TENCOLE

             Well,  it sounds like we’re on the same side then.

    • excopconservative

       I look at it this way.  Only Obama or Romney has a chance of being elected no matter who else is on the ballot.  If Obama is re-elected, Gov. Palin will have no power in government.  The media will ignore or ridicule her as they see fit.  Never mind that our country will never be the same as we will be a socialist nation with socialist health care.

      If Romney is elected and he doesn’t repeal Obamacare, he will be subject to the ire of Gov. Palin.  The media will pay attention to Gov. Palin as she will be critical of a Republican President.  Even if she takes no official role in a Romney administration, she will wield enormous power, the power of the conservative movement.

      I also don’t believe that Romney will order our Special Forces to "stand down" and watch American patriots die. 

      Sometimes we must do distasteful things in order to protect the country.  Consider it like the foul taste of a medicine that will make you feel better in the long run.   Speaking for myself, I can’t wait to savor the foul taste on Tuesday that will make our nation better.  I’m counting the hours until I can take that bitter pill.  It can’t come soon enough.

    • IsraeliCojones

      Just as I loathe Obama and his unethical, illegal and unconstitutional activities… being ABO just doesn’t cut it for me.

      It should, just for the reasons you have stated, no? If being a criminal is not enough for you to stop him, what circumstances will be enough for you to act against him? What will be enough for you to stop Obama? A genocide?

      I don’t trust Romney / GOPe and their campaign promises.

      Who does? Is it the question at hand? 99% of the people here who are casting their vote for Romney do not trust him, but they will vote for him because they know it is their utmost duty to stop a criminal, and for the moment, it’s the only way they’ve got to achieve it.

      But I’ve noticed that you always change the subject when faced with this simple reality: that Romney is the only one able to stop the criminal and his destructive agenda for America. Like you did the other day, saying:

      Does that mean I have to "support him"…."support" his policies…..put boots on the ground….. do "robo-calls"….send him money…..or even put a sign in my yard ?

      Right. Who did that here, pray tell (except for Sarah Palin?). But they will vote for Romney no matter what. As Sarah Palin will. And they’ll do it to stop a criminal, and as Bill Whittle says, for love of country, which should be the first and foremost principle of any (still) free citizen.

      Do you think these people are losing their "soul" by doing it? (I’m talking about "soul" because it’s a recurring theme in your posts. Why? I’m still wondering). No one burns in hell for stopping a criminal. But one can for standing idle and do nothing in front of the crime.

      So keep your "purity" and stand idle while your country is ready to collapse. If Obama wins, you will have your purity to comfort you while you and your children are enslaved forever.

      And if Romney wins, don’t come with "I told you so’s" later, because you never said anything pertinent to what people were trying to do here by voting for him.

      And because no one here needs to be lectured about Romney, who he is and what he represents. And no one has any intention of forgetting to hold him accountable if need be.

      They won’t need you for that, but at least, they will have done what was right when it mattered.

      • LLDub

         Frankly, I think the person is a Hussein supporter trying to dispirit the troops.  I’m sure their are many afoot trying every last ditch argument they can come up with.

        How can anyone be here, a "supporter" of The Guv, and totally dismiss everything she is teaching us?

        • IsraeliCojones

          No, she’s not a Hussein supporter, far from it.

          She just can’t tell the forest for the trees, that’s all, and it’s unfortunate.

          But I didn’t and won’t waste my time trying to talk some sense into anyone, not now: posting that kind of things on November 5th is just for attention-craving, IMHO.

          If a voter who has the right to vote has decided that his vote is useless, well, then it is really useless.

          I don’t care for that. I care for America’s future.


          • TENCOLE

             Believe it or not IC….we care about the same things.

        • TENCOLE

           I’m not even going to respond to this idiotic statement….it’ll only get me banned.

      • TENCOLE

        I know we have two options…..Mitt or Obama…duh. Does that mean I have to like it or support it?

        • IsraeliCojones

          Not a person here who is going to vote for Mitt is liking it, or going to like it (though the DEEP SATISFACTION of kicking the Duce’s ass should be enough to make it easy).

          But it’s not the point. The point is to get the Traitor-In-Chief out of the freaking WH and to restore this Constitution of yours.

          And even if it doesn’t happen – or fully happen – under Mitt, getting rid of the malevolence of Jarrett, Holder and all this disgraceful clique is MANDATORY.

          Frankly Ten, you sound like someone who NEVER does something she doesn’t like, or does a thing only if she likes it.

          Problem is, I don’t know any adult who lives like that. Because it means the the notion of OBLIGATION is completely foreign to you.

          Seriously I don’t know what to say. I’m not trying to convince you, but I regret to tell you that here, you are really on the wrong side of the fence.

      This is an odd reasoning to me..

      I think back to WW2:
       I wonder what would have happened if the United states and Britain had the same high and mighty lofty principles as some of  you do…  And could never partner with the communist Stalin (for their own good)..for even a season..We might all be speaking German today. Seig Heil?

      Think of that ,please ,while you sit and slumber.

      • TENCOLE

         These scenarios aren’t even close to being the same.

        • otto

          Your dead wrong. The example is absolutely relevant.

           You are cutting off your nose to spite your face. In the end the whole body dies.
          Maybe you don’t think OBAMA is so bad for our country ,and you like to vote or not vote for "revenge" ,as Mr. Obama suggests.(against da big bad Republican party)

          O.K…. Have it your own way. But don’t be surprised when your dissatisfaction with this Marxist falls on deaf ears ,if he wins.

          life is a funny game. It’s played one time..just one.. ,and it can not be done over

    • FlAli

      You are the type of person who if dying of thirst in a desert will not drink tap water because you only drink bottled water.  You have no love of country but love of yourself and your misguided "principles" or whatever you want to call them.  Sometimes when steak is not available people make do with hamburger.  I feel sorry for you and for people who think the same as you do.  It is time that we do what is right for all, not what is right for one.  So, suck it up, and think of the big picture and stop being such a whiny baby.

      • TENCOLE

        You make me sick. Saying I have no love of country……HOW DARE YOU!
        It’s so easy for you to just throw insults around when you don’t know what the Hell you’re talking about isn’t it?
        And don’t you dare feel sorry for me and "my kind"….us "whiny babies" will be just fine.

      • Steve_Flesher

        When trying to convince others, let’s try and refrain from nasty labeling, please.

        Tencole and I both live in Illinois and Tencole has definitely been very firm in the position to not vote for Romney.  We see first hand what corruption does in politics because we live it.

        I will be voting for Romney tomorrow though it won’t matter.  We can disagree with Tencole without suggesting a lack for love of country. 

    • Mary Beth House

      I don’t trust the GOPe much either Ten. 

      But here’s the thing.

      Even though I don’t trust them, I don’t trust the others a thousand times worse.

      As for Mittens…he is running on what even Governor Palin recognizes is a Conservative platform.  Is Obama?  No of course not.

      By your own admission, even though you were being somewhat facetious, there is a chance that Mitt could be more than we suspect him to be. Is there a chance that Obama could have a conservative revelation?

      Could Obama be manipulated or maneuvered into nominating Constitutionalists to the Supreme Court or to the various federal judge ships?

      Is there a chance that Obama can be nudged to shrinking government in the slightest?

      Is there a possibility that he will all the sudden recognize how vital Israel is and how important "Peace through strength" is?

      Can we hope that he learned something from Benghazi other than how to lie better?

      Of course not.

      At the end of the day, this election we’re in the most crucial battle of one of the most important wars of our time. We don’t always get to choose who best represents what we want…and in war you fight the battles you’re in and right now, we’re in the fight for our lives.

      I share your dislike and distrust but our options are not between Mitt and someone we like, but rather Mittens and someone we know is a disaster, who’s policies and agenda have been proven to be toxic.

      Please don’t stand on the sidelines and choose not to participate because you wish we had a more perfect candidate. 

      America can’t afford it.

        Mary Beth, my love for this country is a strong as yours and everyone else’s here. I have skin in this game and I’m not sitting on the sidelines. There are other candidates and issues that I’m voting on/for.

        • Mary Beth House

          I never called your love of country into question TC.  That’s an unnecessary deflection and a rhetorical strategy that’s beneath the discourse we have here.

    Great fb post……Thanks, Gov. Palin. You’re the best!….

    luv ya.

  • IndieDogg

    I have news for some who still insist on pouting all the way to the polls to cast their write-in vote for Santa Claus or whomever, if you’re concerned about Mitt Romney and Obamacare, the one person I’m fairly certain will not repeal it is… Barack Obama. It is woefully unclear to me how re-electing Barack Obama helps America. And I, for one, plan to do all I can to see that it doesn’t happen.

    By the way, who ever thought you’d see something like this is Pennsylvania on Election eve eve:

       Thanks for posting this, and thank you to Gov. Palin.  This is the way the campaign should have been talking all along.

  • otto

    For those who have ears:

    Once upon a time there was an ambassador and some C.I.A. agents, who found themselves under an awful  terror attack? They waited ,and waited, and hoped .. and thought surely help would come soon..

     But sadly they all died waiting. For the help they needed and hoped for, was never coming.

    VOTE 2016..No!!!  VOTE TODAY and help rid this country of this Marxist.

    Sarah Palin laid it all out above. I think she said all that needs to be said. IMO


  • AmsterdamExpat

    Governor Palin, thank you for this statement — precisely right, both in the tone and the length. (Neither of which can be said of the election itself in general and even less of the election campaign in particular; I will breathe a sigh of relief when it’s over tomorrow (if it is indeed over then — heaven help us if by some fluke it is not).)

    As for me, I voted last week, by absentee ballot. Of course I voted for R/R (though under the rubric of the Conservative Party, not the GOP, which is possible thanks to New York State’s system of concurrent candidacies), but in terms of content, my vote was entirely against O, and not at all for MR. (If, in fact, I was voting for anyone in the positive sense, to a certain extent it was only for Paul Ryan. Now, why does this sound familiar?)

    Should MR win, the major domestic issue is Obamacare and its full repeal. If MR is smart (a question, I know) he will see to it post haste, arranging even before it and he are sworn in with the members of the next Congress for the necessary action.

    I’ll probably speak up here late tomorrow: in a joyful frame of mind, I hope.

    Until then, best regards,

    Amsterdam Expat

    Romney should have been forcefully making this argument from day one.  Hopefully, 0bama will be gone completely on January 20, 2013, but I fear that there may be more than enough really stupid people to drag his sorry a$$ across the finishline one more time.

  • conservativemama

    Perfectly stated.  Of course I will vote for Romney and George Allen here in Virginia.  How many chances does one family get?  As I’ve written many times, my parents left Cuba in 1961.  51 years later I find myself facing the loss of my country.  I cannot be part of that.  I must vote.

    We have to vote.  We have to save our country.  And God willing Romney wins, then we have to focus on reclaiming our culture, our schools, our story.  We know what the Left has done to our country, and we must stop it.  We must restore this great nation.  It begins at home with our children, the next generation.

    I’m praying, I’m voting, I’m commenting, I’m talking to people…………………………….my fingers and toes are crossed.

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    Thank you Governor Palin. Rest assured that no one here has said they are voting for Obama. He will not get a single vote from any of your supporters. I respect every American’s right to vote their conscience. God’s will, be done on Tuesday.

          Mark my word, bro':

          I’m fed up of conspiracy theories

          I really had my share of them during the past few months.

          I think I’m gonna write a personal letter to the Governor, BEGGING her not to EVER use the word "unconventional" again.

          Because this word seems to have some very strange and unfortunate side effects on certain people.

          By the way, don’t forget to send Barack and Moochelle packing tomorrow.
