    Good morning all.

    Excellent article about Gov.Palin’s record of accomplishments.
    —————-

    ‘Who Is the Real Sarah Palin?’

    From the article:

    Executive Authority and Success

    Palin was the first female and youngest governor to be elected in Alaska, which is tied for the second most powerful governorship in the United States, according to Thad Beyle, a political scientist at the University of North Carolina.
    ——

    Budgeting and Spending

    Palin cut state spending between 2007 and 2010 by 9.5% while also reducing federal earmark requests by more than 80% during her tenure. She used her line-item veto to cut more than a quarter billion in superfluous spending in both 2007 and 2008. In 2009, she instituted a temporary hiring freeze, while at the same time reducing spending by more than 33% between FY2009 and FY2010.

    In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor.  Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008. Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.  
    ——–

    Jobs

    Under Palin’s leadership, Alaska was 2nd in job growth, and 3rd in the change in its unemployment rate, compared to the other states. Alaska also saw a record number of oil jobs in both 2008 and 2009, while natural resource and logging jobs increased 13.7% during Palin’s tenure.

    In fact, Palin’s record on jobs compared to the country as a whole was stronger than the President’s and other prominent governors’ during their respective tenures
    ——-

    Business Growth

    Alaska was an opportunity society under Palin. Alaska moved up from the 4th most business tax-friendly state to the 3rd most business tax-friendly state during her tenure.

    Palin was a firm believer in tax cuts. In addition to lowering unemployment insurance tax rates, she cut business license fees in half, suspended the state motor fuel tax, and signed legislation, allowing Alaska-based businesses the same opportunities as out-of-state businesses. All of this was consistent with her record as Mayor of Wasilla, where she eliminated small business inventory taxes and cut property tax mill levies every year she was in office.
    ——-

    Energy

    Energy issues are Palin’s forte, and her record proves it. In 2007, Governor Palin signed ACES—Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share—a net tax on oil profits that was passed in a bipartisan and transparent manner. ACES replaced the corruption-tainted oil tax plan of the previous administration, which was passed in secret and ultimately lead to the federal indictment of several Alaskan state officials and oil company personnel. Furthermore, ACES provided oil companies with incentives to develop. The progressivity of the tax meant producers were protected when oil prices were low, but the interest of the resource owners—the people of Alaska—were appropriately protected as well to achieve a fair return for their resource.

    Most importantly, ACES led to jobs, increased development, and a huge surplus for Alaska.

    Perhaps Palin’s biggest energy achievement was spearheading the creation of the Alaska natural gas pipeline. After five decades of unsuccessful attempts by Alaskan administrations to bring a gas pipeline project into existence, Palin and her team introduced the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) in March 2007. AGIA passed the Legislature by a vote of 57-1 in May of that year.

    Unlike the behind-closed-doors cronyism of past administrations, Palin’s AGIA legislation was conducted out in the open and made use of a genuine free-market competitive bidding process. Palin’s AGIA placed not only Alaska, but also the nation, further on the path toward energy independence.

    Palin played hardball with the big oil companies in her state. According to the Alaska state constitution, Alaskans are the resource owners in their state; and it was Palin’s duty as their CEO to get the best deal for Alaskans while at the same time partnering with these oil companies for the mutual benefit of all.
    ———-

    Ethics Reform and Transparency

    Ethics reform was the hallmark of Palin’s governorship. She was swept into office on a reform message in a state with a serious corruption problem. Alaska at the time was undergoing a federal investigation that culminated in the indictment of various corrupt lawmakers. Palin had made a name for herself as an ethics crusader when she chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservative Commission and blew the whistle on fellow commissioner and state GOP head Randy Ruedrich for doing party business on state time. This resulted in Ruedrich receiving a $12,000 fine—the largest civil fine for ethics in the state’s history. Alaskans respected the fact that Palin was not afraid of taking on the establishment of her own party.

    As governor, Palin fought for and signed sweeping bipartisan ethics legislation, which restricted lobbyists, improved disclosure laws, and improved executive and legislative branch ethics laws. In the face of corruption, she continued to take on her own party when it was necessary. She also increased transparency by releasing her oil tax bill to her constituents 17 days prior to the special legislative session, opening up natural gas pipeline deals to all potential parties, putting the state checkbook online, and not allowing lobbyists in her office.
    ——–

    Education

    Palin forward funded education to allow districts greater flexibility, supported increased vocational training and early education funding, opened up opportunity to Alaskan students to participate in regional medical schools, and increased overall funding for special needs education by 175% (before she herself became the mother of son with special needs). Believing that the best reform was close to home, Palin wisely also chose to monitor rather than participate in national standards for education.
    ——-

    Health Care

    Palin introduced health care transparency legislation that established an Alaska health care information office to give consumers factual information on quality and cost to help them make better-informed health care decisions. Recognizing that health care must be market-and business-driven, rather than restricted by government, Palin proposed repeal of Certificate of Need—a layer of bureaucracy that prevents medical facility development. She established the Alaska Health Strategies Planning Council, reduced Medicaid assessments by 83%, and expanded Alaska’s SeniorCare benefits program for low-income seniors.

      Always good to refresh in my mind all the reasons we miss having Sarah as our Governor….and need her as our POTUS….

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    My Dear Friends in Sarah,

    Happy Monday to you all!!

    One day to go.

    Let us pray that the terrible Era of obama will come to an end tomorrow–although, even if he loses, there has to be real concern about what he and the lame-duck Senate may do (international treaties, various executive "orders" and appointments, etc.) between 7 November, 2012 and 20 January, 2013.

    Below are my remarks from last night on her great interview with Hannity.

    Have a wonderful day!

    POST FROM LAST NIGHT ON THE HANNITY INTERVIEW

    Good Evening, Everyone!

    The Governor again tonight, in her interview with Hannity, manifested her genius for packing a world of meaning into the short and straitened space of a very brief interview. She says more in a few minutes–sometimes with a mere phrase (remember "death panels"?!?) than most can say in hours and hours.

    Here are a few highlights from and observations on the interview.

    Emphases are mine throughout.

    THE HANNITY INTERVIEW

    Re obama’s recent voting for "revenge" remarks, she says, "Revenge is a very poor tool to build a united and hope-filled nation." And she say that for a president "to encourage anyone to exact revenge via their vote is pretty much the antithesis certainly of what Mitt Romney is representing and standing for in this election–and that’s a great question: ‘Revenge against who? Against what?’ "

    Right on, Governor: Probing the MEANING and IMPLICATIONS of the word "REVENGE"!!!

    The polls are close because of the corrupt, lamestream media.

    The press has "intimately invested itself in" (great, expressive phrase!) obama’s candidacy and reelection bid.

    They would not allow the American public to actually hear what obama was planning to do to our country.

    What he’s done so far is a PROLOGUE (great expression) to what four more years would be. In other words, the main act, the main part of the "story," will come if obama is allowed to have four more years, years during which he would not be subject to the electorate. This was, IMV, a wonderful and expressive image created by the Governor: PROLOGUE!!

    It was "UNFILTERED FORUMS," namely the debates, that finally caused things to start shifting.

    Again, this is a wonderfully evocative phrase: UNFILTERED FORUMS!!

    She is optimistic about Tuesday, but she won’t make predictions.

    She contrasts the "INSIDE BASEBALL" stuff, polls, etc., with matters on which the media should be focusing, issues like Benghazi and its cover-up, and obama’s foreign campaign contributions.

    "The status quo has got to go."

    Re PENNSYLVANIA and other States that were thought to be safe for obama, and re Romney’s recent activities in these States: A campaign should never give up on any State.

    This was, IMV, a clear, if implicit, reference to her own wish and STRATEGY in 2008 to STAY IN MICHIGAN, even when the McCain campaign pulled out of that State!!

    Guys, it is this conclusion to the interview, combined with its opening theme, "revenge," that makes a fascinating study, IMHO.

    REVENGE VERSUS MEMORY.

    We have obama’s REVENGE, on the one hand, which is the remembering of something with an INTENTION to inflict dire and drastic RETRIBUTION, and, on the other hand, Sarah’s MEMORY of 2008 and the abandonment of Michigan by John McCain’s campaign.

    It is MEMORY, not to exact foul and fetid "REVENGE," but to CORRECT and RECTIFY a mistake!!!

    To my mind, the "alpha and the omega" of this interview, its beginning and its end, drew a sharp and vivid and indelible contrast between the healing and restorative spirit of the heroic and great-hearted Lady of the North Country, and the vicious, petty, petulant, small-minded Chicago thug whose "reign," God willing, is about to come to an end!!

    God bless you all always!!

    OUR SARAH ALWAYS!!

      Sarah Palin – The unconventional politician, but a very conventional American

    "Tuesday’s Turning Point

    As we approach this extremely important presidential election on Tuesday, I thought I’d share a couple of quick thoughts:

    As you all know, our family was right in the middle of all this four years ago. We got to experience some amazing things and meet many incredible people. We also got to see the dark, ugly side of politics where people spread lies, expected favors, and said some of the most terrible things you can imagine. If you’ve read our book, you already know what I’m talking about.

    Through it all, our family tried to rise above the attacks on Sarah, her children, and the rest of us. It wasn’t easy and it’s still not. I’ll never understand where the deep-seated hatred comes from in some people. As hard as it is sometimes, we still try to say a prayer for those people who feel the need to so viciously attack her. We really do hope that they’ll find some kind of inner-peace.

    As I said in our book, when the election results started filtering in on that November night in 2008 and we realized that a defeat was inevitable, we didn’t hang our heads and wallow in self-pity.  We knew that we (especially Sarah) had fought as hard as humanly possible to come out on top. Probably as the result of years involved in competitive sports, we handled the defeat with class and we sincerely wished our new president well. After all, the fate of our nation, and our children was now in his hands, so of course we wanted him to succeed.

    Well, the experiment didn’t seem to work. The hope and change we were promised didn’t work out. Who of you is really better off than you were four years ago? Gas prices have more than doubled, the budget deficit that we were promised would be cut in half has jumped by six trillion dollars, heroic Americans were needlessly killed in Benghazi and to make matters worse, our own government lied to us about it. Our soldiers have probably lost a lot of faith in their leadership as a result. Tensions between political parties and races seem to be at an all-time high, too. The Fed keeps printing money with nothing to back it up, and we’re spending more than we take in. The list goes on…

    It’s doubtful that a little post like this is going to change anyone’s mind about who they’ll vote for next Tuesday. But I hope when you get in the booth and close the curtain, you’ll really think about how important your choice is. This is not a popularity contest. It’s a critical turning point for this great country."

    (For those who don’t go to Facebook, I am here re-posting Sarah’s closing argument on the election from four hours ago. It is also posted on a dedicated thread on the C4P homepage…)

    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

    ‘Poll: Americans Reject Crony Capitalism, 3-1′

    From the article:

    "In a recent Boston Herald column, pollster Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports cited poll findings that show strong bipartisan opposition to cronyism and its effects on free markets."

    ——————————————————————-

    Long before "crony capitalism" became a topic of national debate Gov. Palin has fought against corruption and crony capitalism.

    Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Gov. Palin’s agenda.

    Here are some links with information about Gov.Palin’s consistent fight against corruption and crony capitalism.
    —————————-

    ‘Institutionalizing Crony Capitalism’   (by Governor Palin)  

    From the article:
     
    "We need to be on our guard against such crony capitalism. We fought against distortion of the market in Alaska when we confronted “Big Oil,” or more specifically some of the players in the industry and in political office, who were taking the 49th state for a ride.
    My administration challenged lax rules that seemed to allow corruption, and we even challenged the largest corporation in the world at the time for not abiding by provisions in contracts it held with the state. When it came time to craft a plan for a natural gas pipeline, we insisted on transparency and a level playing field to ensure fair competition.

    Our reforms helped reduce politicians’ ability to play favorites and helped clean up corruption. We set up stricter oversight offices and ushered through a bi-partisan ethics reform bill. Far from being against necessary reform, I embrace it. "

    From the article:

    ‘Governor Palin’s Consistent Fight against Corruption and Crony Capitalism’   (by Whitney Pitcher)

    From the article:

    "Governor Palin’s strong stance against crony capitalism, bureaucrats picking winners and losers, and a lack of transparency is not just words; it’s action.

    Citizen candidates do indeed bring a fresh perspective to a campaign and even to public office. However, there is something to be said for someone who took on corruption while in elected office. Such an individual has governed or legislated in an atmosphere of corruption, back room deals, and cronyism and has not only weathered such an atmosphere, but has effected change for the better. It is one thing to act as a citizen watchdog; it is another to make sure that legislation and projects are transparent and are void of back room deals and crony capitalism. Governor Palin is such a person."

      This issue of Crony Capitalism is a WINNING one for the Governor across a broad spectrum of the American public … which is why her momentous speech in Indianola, Iowa on 3 September of last year scared the H*** out of the Establishment, both Left and GOP.

    Guys, our friend Firelight posted over on Palin4America this morning Ronald Reagan’s momentous and famous speech from October, 1964, "A Time for Choosing."

    Reagan was born in 1911.  This means:

    That he was 53 when he delivered this oration;

    That he was 55 when he was first elected Governor of California;

    That he was 65 when he challenged President Ford in ’76 for the GOP nomination;

    That he was 69 when he was first elected President of the United States.

    Our Sarah is 48.  Reagan was 48  … in 1959.

    She is young in body; young in heart; young in her brave, beautiful Alaskan and American spirit.

    This is just for a little perspective.

    IMHO, the Governor has a great and glorious destiny in front of her … whatever the electoral outcome may be tomorrow!!!

      I agree Brian.  I have said all along, God has his hand on Gov. Palin and He has great things in store for her. But He will do it in His time, not ours.  I believe as time goes by, events will unfold that will make perfect sense of all of this.  We just need to have faith in Him.

      Yes BB – If the Lord grants us the time, Sarah’s time will come.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Yes!!

  • PatrickDownUnder

    Praying for you all.

    How is everybody feeling?

    What will the UN do if the Black Panthers and NAACP show up :)   ?

    I confess that I’m a little concerned. I believe the American people are going to make the right choice…but these people will do anything to hang on to power, especially when they know this term is their last. The damage they could do.

    While this won’t be my last post, let me just say God bless and protect all those at the polling booths tomorrow, and God bless America! 

    • wodiej

      Thank you Patrick.  Speaking for myself, I am pumped up with enthusiasm, hope and faith!

      Thank you so much, Patrick!!

      And may God bless you and your great country too!!

    • PatrickDownUnder

      That’s good to hear Wodiej. 

      In ’08, the Aussie media only gave us whatever soundbytes hand-fed to them by the fawning US Obama outlets. Our celebrities, like yours, worship Obama. It seems to be somewhat less this time. 

      I was telling some young friends recently that I believe the USA will be voting not just for change, but against their media. 

      I can’t wait to feel the effect! If America is great, we are all safe and prosperous.

    • cheers2all

      Pennsylvania has a Republican Governor this time. He should block them from getting anywhere a voting area, and if he can’t, he better have police presence, strong enough to weaken their bravado.

        I will vote bright and early on Tuesday morning. I still haven’t decided whether to write-in Sarah Palin…

  • OldPat

    For those of you who think I’m a bit harsh in my denouncement of BO, I guess that I should remind you that narcissistic egomaniacs think in grand terms.  BO thinks of himself as Woody Wilson, FDR, JFK and Slick Willy all rolled into one.

    That’s why the Benghazi four and the thirty-three men of Seal Team 6 are but the tip of this berg.  For the other 90+%, you must look beneath the surface because the complicit LSM isn’t going to tell you.

    When you do, you’ll find that fatalities of America’s finest in harm’s way have doubled since BO implemented his asinine rules of engagement.  IMV, BO’s killing our finest young men and women by the thousands needlessly to implement his warped view of reality.

    When I was young and in my prime I was one of them, and now you know why I thank The Lord for letting me live until Nov. 6, 2012.

      "We now have four solid years of Obama administration support for radical jihadi movements against the modern world.  The United States has abandoned any moral basis for its foreign policy.  Prior to Obama, we stood for civilization and against tyranny of all kinds, in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War.  Today, for the first time in history, an American president is knowingly aiding and abetting ideological barbarism.  Thomas Jefferson fought the Barbary Pirates; Obama is aiding the Barbary Pirates to fight us."

    If you believe that a Washington Redskins loss at home just before the presidential election is indicative of who will win the election, then the result yesterday near the WH should warm the cockles of your heart.

    The Carolina Panthers upset the Skins and in the past (18 of 19 elections) that has been the challenger prevails or the opposition party wins the election.

    The only exception is 2004 when the Green Bay Packers beat the Skins but Kerry did not prevail.

    • IsraeliCojones

      If you believe that a Washington Redskins loss at home just before the presidential election is indicative of who will win the election,

      If anyone here believes that such unrelated fact to the election is indicative of anything regarding the election, then I would advise them to rather rely on the careful inspection of chicken entrails: it works better.

  • celestiallady

    I am at work and its early, not everyone here yet so I was sneaking and looking at different sites to see what things look like and I at the risk of getting beat up for going to the Huff Post – I did and saw this. It most likely has a lot to do with why Sarah has kept her support for Romney(if it is there) more of less on the quiet. This is unbelievable and sickening. Please no nastiness on me.

    • PatrickDownUnder

      Well, you need to see what inhabits the liberal mind occasionally- :)

      I glossed over the article- cherry picked half-truths are standard fare but it’s the way they project their own poison onto Palin. It’s quite encouraging, actually, that the desperation has reached this. Palin’s involvement in the political discourse during this election has been well known and visible to all for some time. This faux outrage over a PAC donation is ridiculous- just another vehicle for a HuffPo shill to hate on Palin as they do.

      They say Palin’s endorsement will "bring out the democrats in droves". Their rubbish will actually bring out conservatives. 

    • wodiej

      what a sad bunch over there.  That pic they posted exudes their own hate.  As I stated yesterday, last minute donations are very helpful especially this time because Romney has a chance in many states they hadn’t thought they did like Minnesota and PA.  Many swing states that went for o last time, Romney is now tied in or likely ahead based on skewed polling.  It takes a lot of money and can be spent very quickly on plane trips to rallies, equipment set up, security etc.  

      • celestiallady

        Exactly and we all know the sane reasons for it. I was infuriated to see that though. My blood boiled!!!  

    • ZH100

      The writer of that piece is Geoffrey Dunn, a notorious Palin hater.

      He wrote many hit pieces (even a book) about  Gov.Palin , full with smears and misinformation.

      His attacks (writing style)  on Gov.Palin are mostly character attacks in order to undermine Gov.Palin’s credibility.

      Palin haters like Geoffrey Dunn have a weird obsession with Gov.Palin.

      By the way, Geoffrey Dunn is also a Trig-truther.

      There are different "types" of Palin haters . Geoffrey Dunn and Joe McGinnes are the same type of Palin haters.

      P.S Geoffrey Dunn’s contacts in AK are Jeanne Devon and Shannyn Moore; also two notorious Palin haters.
      ———-

      This article is a good example of Dunn’s distortion of the facts he is using in his articles about Gov.Palin in order to to besmirch the reputation of Gov. Palin.

    Axelrod on Why Obama Campaigned Hours After Benghazi: ‘Everything Was Put in Motion That He Could Put in Motion’
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/axelrod-why-obama-campaigned-hours-after-benghazi-everything-was-put-motion-he-could

    BALD-FACED LIES from sociopathic liars who must be thrown out of office on November 6 for the sake of a free America with respect for those trying to honorably serve their country, as opposed to despising them by not caring one whit about their lives in favor of making excuses to make radical Islam happy!
