When things are the darkest, you look for the light. As our country spirals into bankruptcy, we remind ourselves that there is always hope.
George Rogers Clark pens a powerful piece today on The Patriot Post which articulates why we need Sarah Palin. It fits well with a post I wrote on this site Run, Baby, Run. It adds yet another voice to chorus of those calling out in the night.
Will you help us, Sarah?Clark explains why we shouldn't worry about the polls and the tactics being employed by the Left and the Establishment:
Palin critics have used much of the same rhetoric and tactics that were used against Reagan. He won by a landslide, twice. They underestimate Sarah Palin in much the same way they underestimated Reagan. She can win for all the same reasons Reagan won.This is powerful:
Liberals, media, and even many Republicans underestimated and misjudged Ronald Reagan. More importantly, they misjudged the American people. They thought a moderate candidate, or even a progressive, would reel us in with more "bread and circuses." They thought that after Carter, we would want change, but not too much. A true conservative, like Reagan, was not to their liking. The people saw it differently.Clear your eyes and read the whole piece here.
We loved every word that Ronald Reagan breathed. The "experts" were wrong about him, and about us. He helped us find hope in ourselves and encouraged faith. The change he sought was a return to principles and values that would lift us out of the haze so that we could see the horizon and pilot the ship on a straight and true course.
We have considered the contrasts of the hope, change, and course set by Reagan and those of Obama; they are startling.
Sarah, the "experts" have missed the mark again. You have already helped to energize a new revolution. The situation is far more extreme, but the American people are ready to remove Obama, as we did Carter. Obama is an astute politician and a very good speaker; he was a formidable opponent in 2008. Voters allowed the media to successfully sell him. But, now we know where he really stands. He will be a one-term President.
We know that nominations are hard to win and campaigns have a tremendous financial cost. Your platform at Fox News and effective use of the Internet will help. As your positions, your ideals and your commitment become clear to a broader base, additional financial support will follow. The money seems to flow toward the emerging leader. Be that leader, Sarah.
As we look for light, Paul Ryan gives it to us here (read the whole thing):
