Vote for Palin, NOT McCain

I will not vote for John McCain. He is simply not representative of my beliefs and values, plus I see his campaign's complete lack of organization and definitive message being a clear statement that he is simply not FIT to be president.

Let's examine how bad McCain's campaign has become.

#1. He claims to be a fiscal conservative who will fight wasteful spending and government excesses. So, what does he do to show he's serious? He rubberstamps the biggest porky pig bill of socialism ever seen, also known as the "BAILOUT", and smirks sheepishly with a vacant, detatched expression of weakness when confronted.

#2. He bans ANY references from his campaign to Reverend Wright, refuses to personally attack Obama's ties to William Ayers, and then castigates his OWN SUPPORTERS when they say they don't want a terrorist sympathizer to be president. Going so far as to suggest "Obama is a good and decent family man who we have nothing to fear."

#3. He pretends he never heard of Obama's pro-infanticide position. Not one word from him about his rejection of the Born Alive Bill that was passed unanimously by the senate, and nearly unanimously in the house. Infaniticide rights is NOT a position that most Americans are sympathetic to, yet NO word from LEFTY JOHN about it?

#4. Ever hear of ACORN or LaRaza, John? You would't think so seeing his lame and pathetic campaign that never makes mention of them. Why not point out these corrupt, leftist organizations at least once, John? Oh, that's right, you are not going to do anything to the left but kiss their f-cking ass.

No, I cannot - and WILL not - support John McCain for president. I reject his candidacy, and will not vote for him on election day. He is a RINO who refuses to fight for anything conservatives believe in. He sells us out in a heartbeat to kiss the ass of the Dems who he's always trying desperately to impress.

Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has proven herself to be a true and worthy future power in the party. Forget the Curic interview, she gives great speeches, is a top debater, looks great, and is very good in interviews when McCain gets out of her way and lets her speak as herself.

Here are some words from Sarah this week on the campaign trail that will ring true to all of us on the right who think Obama's postion on infaniticide is INHUMAN.

Says Sarah: "In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?

When I learned that my son Trig would have special needs, I had to prepare my heart for the challenges to come. At first I was scared, and Todd and I had to ask for strength and understanding. But I can tell you a few things I’ve learned already.

Yes, every innocent life matters. Everyone belongs in the circle of protection. Every child has something to contribute to the world, if we give them that chance. There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s, and these are the final measure. Every child is beautiful before God, and dear to Him for their own sake.

As for our beautiful baby boy, for Todd and me, he is only more precious because he is vulnerable. In some ways, I think we stand to learn more from him than he does from us. When we hold Trig and care for him, we don’t feel scared anymore. We feel blessed.

It’s hard to think of many issues that could possibly be more important than who is protected in law and who isn’t – who is granted life and who is denied it. So when our opponent, Senator Obama, speaks about questions of life, I listen very carefully.

I listened when he defended his unconditional support for unlimited abortions. He said that a woman shouldn’t have to be – quote – “punished with a baby.” He said that right here in Johnstown –“punished with a baby” – and it’s about time we called him on it. The more I hear from Senator Obama, the more I understand why he is so vague and evasive on the subject. Americans need to see his record for what it is. It’s not negative or mean-spirited to talk to about his record. Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know.

Senator Obama has voted against bills to end partial-birth abortion. In the Illinois Senate, a bipartisan majority passed legislation against that practice. Senator Obama opposed that bill. He voted against it in committee, and voted “present” on the Senate floor. In that legislature, “present” is how you vote when you’re against something, but don’t want to be held to account. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Democrat, described partial-birth abortion as “too close to infanticide.” Barack Obama thinks it’s a constitutional right, but he is wrong.

Most troubling, as a state senator, Barack Obama wouldn’t even stand up for the rights of infants born alive during an abortion. These infants – often babies with special needs – are simply left to die.

In 2002, Congress unanimously passed a federal law to require medical care for those babies who survive an abortion. They’re living, breathing babies, but Senator Obama describes them as “pre-viable.” This merciful law was called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Illinois had a version of the same law. Obama voted against it.

Asked about this vote, Senator Obama assured a reporter that he’d have voted “yes” on that bill if it had contained language similar to the federal version of the Born Alive Act. There’s just one little problem with that story: the language of both the state and federal bills was identical.

In short, Senator Obama is a politician who has long since left behind even the middle ground on the issue of life. He has sided with those who won’t even protect a child born alive. And this exposes the emptiness of his promises to move beyond the “old politics.”

In both parties, Americans have many concerns to be weighed in the votes they cast on November fourth. In times like these, with wars and a financial crisis, it’s easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life. And it seems our opponent hopes that you will forget. Like so much else in his agenda, he hopes you won’t notice how radical his ideas and record are until it’s too late.

But let there be no misunderstanding about the stakes.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate we need on this issue, at both the state and federal level. A vote for Barack Obama would give the ultimate power over the issue of life to a politician who has never once done anything to protect the unborn. As Senator Obama told Pastor Rick Warren, it’s above his pay grade.

For a candidate who talks so often about “hope,” he offers no hope at all in meeting this great challenge to the conscience of America. There is a growing consensus in our country that we can overcome narrow partisanship on this issue, and bring all the resources of a generous country to the aid of both women in need and the child waiting to be born. We need more of the compassion and idealism that our opponent’s own party, at its best, once stood for. We need the clarity and conviction of leaders like the late Governor Bob Casey.

He represented a humanity that speaks to all of us – no matter what our party, our background, our faith, or our gender. And no matter your position on this sensitive subject, I hope that spirit will guide you on Election Day. I ask you to vote for McCain-Palin on the November fourth, and help us to bring this country together in the rational discussion of compassion and life.”

Palin '12.



  1. Check this great article articulating the dread conservatives feel towards John McCain. Click here.

  2. or as my husband likes to say, "who's john mccain?" he calls her his miss sarah...

  3. You can't strictly speaking (technically, I mean) vote for Palin, right? You could vote for the ticket but you'd be voting for McCain anyroads (correct me if I'm wrong).

  4. Tactically you are similar to me. I support candidates, without mentioning what I disagree with. I support the British Labor Party, on my terms.

    Don't you have trouble with Palin's weird religious views, some antisemitic?

  5. Gert, you are correct that I can't vote for Palin without voting for McCain, unless, of course, I write her in. That option is looking better everyday.

    Ren, if Palin is an anti-Semite than she must hate her own Jewish mother. Clearly she is not and you have been duped once again by your trusted propagandists. Isn't it time to fire them already? Their track record is horrible.

  6. Madze, on the AS connection, I wouldn't dismiss it quite so out of hand. It all boils down to a few of her fundamentalist Pastor-type friends, who take up positions that, although not perhaps AS in the strict sense of the word, sail close the Jews for Jesus wind that you so abhor. The Tinkerwebs are rather full of reports, here's a few:


    Palin and religion

    David Brickner (familiar?) and Pals (Palin)

    The connections are of course similar to Obama's own Pastoral problems.

    Do I think Palin is an anti-Semite? No, not at all. But If I was Jewish I'd perhaps like to know a little more about these links, also with Pat "Capitol Hill is Israeli-occupied territory" Buchanan.

    Perhaps there are a few things Ren knows that you don't?

  7. Gert, your theories are outdated and already debunked. Check here.

    Meanwhile, Obama is reportedly going to end Zionist influence on America. Go here.
