Sarah Palin..? by Merwin

Updated on December 5, 2010

Sarah Palin..? Not a Big Fan.

The complaint I have about Sarah Palin, is the same complaint that I had for Obama... and that is, inexperience.

The major difference between the pre-Presidential Obama and our next President Palin, is that Palin loves this country and Obama seems to hate it.

I am not a big fan of Palin because she lacks experience... but then I believe that also works in our favor (and her's) because she does not mesh well with the existing machinery.

She is hopefully naive, or at least appears that way, And her love for this country, added to her naivete, may be enough to restore much needed hope in the hearts and minds of the populace.

This is something her Presidential predecessor promised with "Yes we can" but could not ultimately deliver... and... why..? Why could he, for all his wonderful charisma, and dynamic delivery of inspiration, not deliver on the hope he inspired?

I believe, with my Moderate's perspective, that he could not deliver... because, down deep he does not love this country of ours. Granted... there is plenty to not love, just to name one glaring issue, is the continued oppression and societal rape of the Native American populations, on an individual, and, collective basis.

That is another Hub, but, let the Native American issue epitomize the heinous acts that this country has committed and is committing currently, that is worthy of hate.

So why "love" this country of ours... that is so willing to "go there", and commit and continue to commit these acts? Because... as a people, as a collective mass of voters, we do not want these things to happen.

Every one of us that vote, want this country to be the example of goodness, of fair play, of generous support of the oppressed and abused. We want this country to "do the right thing".

This however can not be accomplished from a perspective of one who "hates" our country. One who has promised "Change" and "Yes we can" without clearly defining what could be expected as a result of his vision for change.

You see, if, the Commander in Chief does not like what he has been given "the reigns" to, he might tie off those reigns to the buggy as it heads for the cliff and jump off. He doesn't like the "buggy", he hates the "buggy" and would just as soon see it dead as a politically sovereign state... then have it continue as something he hates.

Change..? He wants it totally changed. He does not want it the same and yet changed for the better. No he wants it changed to be just one more state in the global community and barely recognizable to the description it had, prior to his term. And that too, is another Hub.

Palin... the next President of the United States of America, will be a "yes we can" leader, in the truest sense of the phrase. She loves this country, and the naive vision that springs from her inexperience is going to be the shot in the arm that this country desperately needs.

Honestly... I am not hopeful for this country.

It is the most wonderful country and holds the hopes of freedom for every person on the planet. It is a country that has no official religion... which means that all religions are FREE to express themselves without oppression.

These freedoms are quickly disappearing under the oppressions delivered by misinformation that is composed by those who wish to do away with religion altogether.

I am not hopeful for this beautifully gifted country, mainly because of the cancerous political machinery (puppets of central banking) that will not allow for the Sarah Palins from its own populace to come forward and "do the right thing".

(See... Mr. Smith goes to Washington - Jimmy Stewart)

The machinery has "given" this country to the "global community", I doubt that this same machinery, will allow someone like Ms. President Palin, to get very far.

Too bad... as naive as she is, she really loves our country and all the people that make it up, or at least she appears to.

That could be more than enough.

      Well said sir, but I didn't see a lot of "freedom together" in Sarah Palin's "Real America", I saw a lot more "Us Against Them" in her version.

      Thanks T...

      And thank you for mentioning my glossing over C.F.'s comment, it is a comment that one does hear a lot (or read a lot) and I should not gloss over it. It is a racist comment and a really ignorant one that does deserved to be shot down at its every expression.

      I will take a moment and clarify some of my comments about Obama... "...and Obama seems to hate it." and in another place I said that he, "...down deep he does not love this country of ours." The reasons I take this position are many, but best described by my stating... there has been precious few modern day Presidents that have not hated this country. One of the last paragraphs to this Hub was...

      I still prefer Alan Keyes for President over all the possible Ron Paul(s) (though I like him too), or Sarah Palin(s) because of Mr. Keyes' heart for the country and his genius intellect.

      Ultimately I do not believe the Political Machine will allow anyone who loves this country and what it is supposed to represent, to get into office, or if they are elected, to stay in office.

      I do not know what others (Palin) may mean by "Real America", but what I think it might be, and what it is for me, is best described in MLK's seventeen minute speech where among those things so eloquently preached were...

      "The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people. For many of our white brothers as evidenced by their presence here today have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone."


      "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'"


      "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."


      "This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day."

      (thank you Wikipedia)

      Rev King did not have his "Real America" then, neither do we now, but there is a Real America beating within our hearts.

      MLK had it in his, JFK in his, RFK, in his, it is simply tragic that those who will not sell out this country to the global bankers (lack of capitalization is intentional) will either not get into office or will not last if they do.

      Interesting. Disagree with the hub. Sarah Palin loves the country and Obama hates the country - really? best. Comments are interesting too.

      Gregas has the nerve to state that Obama doesn't love this country as "fact" - really? You know this as a fact? Interesting. I find interest in the last part though where you proclaim "True Americans" - what is that? You know what I think it is? It's a result of the divisive nature of Sarah Palin's "Real America" mantra. See "Real America" is divisive by nature because it implies that there is also a "Fake America" - or in essence, 2 Americas. Dividing our country into 2 is not a show of "love" for "all people" as the hub proclaims. As a result you've got people claiming themselves to be "True Americans" which implies there are also "False Americans" - I guess those are the residents of our 2 Americas. Moving on...

      I agree whole-heartedly with the mudslinging comment.

      Thank you C.F. for saying that you believe Obama was voted in because of his race. I hope Coauthor was listening because it makes my point that every time Black people accomplish something, someone of another race claims it was because he's Black. However, when we respond to that we're accused of "playing the race card", or "reverse racism", or we're just "making everything about race". Interesting if you look at it with an open mind isn't it?

      Now, allow me enough time to put on body armor and fire away...unless of course you're going to keep shooting blanks.

      And Palin by default I'm afraid... only because peeps want to get rid of Obama.

      I believe Obama was voted in because of his race. People in this country felt it was time for a black president. That aside Obama's record was there for all to see, he was a radical before the election and he is still a radical. Now he is caught between the Republicans and his own base. He has alienated himself from both sides. Who know what comes next.

      Agreed... but it would be beneficial all around if it happened.

      One thing that I would like to see in the future that I know will never happen is, when they campign, have someone campaign on the issues instead of all of the mud slinging. That would give the voters a better outlook on what they are voting for. But, like I said, we'll never see that happen. Greg

      Thanks for your comments...

      I wrote two other Hubs about "default voting" that you may also find interesting...

      Good, uncorrupted leadership is hard to find, but I remain hope infected.

      Again thank you for your comments.

      Hi Co, I agree about the fact that Mr. Obama doesn't love this country and should have never made it to where he is. He only made it there because the people in this country vote out of intimidation and not because of intelligence. If they took the time to research what they are votig for he would have never made it. As for Sarah Palin, when she is president, she will do great as long as she chooses the right support, which I believe she has following her now. True Americans. Greg
