In my continuing frustration with Republicans, I decided to go directly to Sarah Palin’s official website.  We’ve all heard (or rather witnessed– no one seems to have actually heard anything real to back it up) the enthusiastic support for Palin.

I have yet to hear anything of substance from Palin, so where better to go than directly to the source?  Surely if there’s anything there it will be in her very own web site, in her very own words;

What is SarahPac?

SarahPac is a federally registered political action committee that supports Gov. Sarah Palin’s plans to build a better, stronger, and safer America in the 21st century.

Great!  How?  No answer.  “Safer America”?  Safer from what– corporate greed, or socialist greed?  Asteroids?  Jihadists?  Anti-Americanism in our own ranks?  No answer.  “…in the 21st Century”?  Cool.  So maybe that undefined “better” America will materialize before my great grandkids die of old age then.

How will contributions be spent?

Your support of SarahPac will make it possible for Gov. Palin to continue to be a strong voice for energy independence and reform.

Any run-of-the-mill Democrat might have said the same thing.  Energy independence, how– by deregulating oil exploration and drilling, or by “weaning us off our addiction” to oil?  Could be either.  Doesn’t say.
By supporting SarahPac, you will allow Gov. Palin to help find and create solutions for America’s most pressing problems;
“Find” solutions?  Conservatives already have them.
…priority number one is building a strong and prosperous economy that recognizes hard work, innovation and integrity by rewarding small businesses and hard working American families.
I think that’s called a “free market”.  Otherwise; how many of you want to be “built” by the government, or want the government to “recognize” or “reward” you?
SarahPac will support local and national candidates who share Gov. Palin’s ideas and goals for our country.

And those ideas are..?  Or haven’t you “found” them yet?

Who is behind SarahPac?

Gov. Sarah Palin believes all Americans must work together for the future, regardless of their party affiliation.

Again; could have been said by any run-of-the-mill Democrat/Progressive, including Marx or Lenin.  “Must work together”?  Toward what?  Or else what?  “For the future”?  What sort of future?  Since when has “the future” been a goal we “must work” for?  The future is coming no matter what it holds.  What, Sarah, do you want for the future?  Say it loud and proud!  Say something!  Anything!

Gov. Palin is the honorary chair of SarahPac, and its supporters are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and those unaffiliated with any political party.

So I’m sure the Democrat “Borking” machine is now going to shower you with love and adoration then, right?  Now that you’re all unaffiliated and stuff?

Why now?

No; it’s what now?  Tell us What you want to do.

As a new president takes office and begins to lead our country..

The president’s job is to lead Congress and command the military, not the country.  How many of you want to be lead, verses, say, left the hell alone?

…Gov. Palin believes that every one of us has a duty and responsibility in this time of economic crisis and international challenge.

We have a duty and a responsibility to do what, exactly?  Would that be to roll over and play nicey nice in the face of encroaching socialism that threatens to tear apart the republic, or stand up and fight it tooth and nail?  Which?  Can’t decide?  Still looking for ideas?  Still haven’t found them?  Oh look!  A pony!

Each one of us must step up to the plate, get involved in the spirit of renaissance and renewal that is critical to America’s success.

Again; all politicians, from the best to the very worst, talk just like that.  There’s nothing there.  Thousand points of light.  Great Society.  Bridge to the 21st Century, Thousand Year Reich, Renaissance and Renewal, Hope and Change, blah, blah, blah, (gag) (puke).  How about Puppies and Unicorns?  Hey, yeah.  Everybody likes puppies and unicorns.  Lets use that.  The ignorant masses will love it.  Yes We Can!

Make your voice heard by joining SarahPac today!

Some will say she’s crazy like a fox– that she has this super-duper, duper…duper plan (that no one’s ever heard– ever) and that once she gets a goin’  by golly gee whizz, Katy bar the door!  I’m not holding my breath.  I say she’s a Republican.

Sorry; it’s just that, assuming words mean things, it’s amazing how little meaning can exist in so many words.  Yes I’m being very hard on her, but we’ve seen this vacuous crap all too often.

  1. Can’t be too precise on how to do things as that can anger people. Remember, the one got elected because he was an empty vessel that everyone could project into. Not because he came out as for this or that.

  2. Nevertheless, my advice to Republicans seeking the nomination in 2012–with or without her running–is to be loudly on record condemning the scurrilous attacks on her and her family. This was what really pissed people off about the attacks from Frum, Noonan, et al–that they attacked her in concert with the lies about her family, and implicitly endorsed them.

    Imagine Rick Santorum opening a speech with an angry denunciation of the left-wing liars’ treatment of Palin’s family–and then, having established that he’s one of the good guys, more calmly stating his specific differences with her policies, such as the windfall profits tax. He could thereby establish himself as the frontrunner, I believe.

  3. “Can’t be too precise on how to do things as that can anger people.”

    I think the Republican Party should adopt that as their official slogan.

    They live by it already, and that’s of course my point. The Left’s attack machine is going after them anyway, so why try to hide? McCain proved that– he was the sort of Republican candidate that the Left has been telling us we needed all along. Why not give the Left a large dose, or several doses, of their own medicine? Why make any effort to accommodate them, unless of course it is that you’ve already accepted their premises? And with that I will say “bingo”.

    The fact remains that up-front conservatism works every time it’s tried. Now if this or that Republican tries to use that fact to their advantage, as a ruse, what we end up getting is another Bush or another Schwarzenegger and the problem of ever-encroaching government continues. Every election in our lifetimes has been a choice between more socialism slower, verses more socialism faster. I’m not terribly interested in that particular choice– Do you want to be poisoned quickly or poisoned slowly? Maybe the fast poison will at least get you into the emergency room, whereas by the time you realize you’ve been slow-poisoned by your own housemaid, it’s too late to do anything about it. One could make the case, and quite credibly, that getting it over with faster would be preferable to letting socialism get its teeth and roots into our culture over a longer period of time. The role of the Republican Party seems to have been to advocate the latter, and I’m just not falling for it any more. I don’t car how sweet or how much of a victim Sarah Palin may be, she or whomever is going to have to show me some real meat and potatoes (and I don’t mean just words, but real actions) or get the hell off the battlefield, ’cause they’re just getting in the way.

  4. Alaskans tend to be independent ,believe in being self reliant. However in contradiction due to the climate amd lack of industry they are subsidized a great deal from the federal and state government.

    The deal in their statehood was that the resourses, oil and gas in most cases belong to the people and the people get a share in those profits. The windfall profits referenced above was a change in the allocation from the oil companies which had kept their payments low due to backroom deals where they gave money to the politicians. That is part of what she changed and that did increase the taxes on the oil companies and increased the dividends to the residents.

    First of all she believes in the BOR and the 2nd. The exact parameters have not been explored. Sarah is a consummate politician . She excels at meet and greet and as a PR spokeswomen for her state.
    Alaska conservatives tend to be libertarian mostly but pro military. They have a large military due to the closeness of Russia and the missile defense in Alaska.

    Her recent facebook statements show that she does realize that Obama care is designed to evolve into single payer and that will result in rationing . Since the elderly are the primary users of medical care , they are the ones that will have medical care rationed.

    I believe that her idealogy is resonant with my own. But in reality we never know if another person totally shares the same beliefs.

    If the choice is her and Obama I will place my trust in her because I think her instincts are right and she is a capitalist mostly. Plus she has been very careful to abide by he restriction and the state constitution even when it conflicted with her own beliefs. That was shown when she decided that Alaska had to give the same benefits to same sex couples as heterosexual couples. She got a legal opinion that the state constitution and statutes required that and she she went with that.

    Does she have the knowledge to govern this country, I don’t think so. But neither did Bush, Obama, Biden. Does she have the will, I think she does. Romney is the smartest and more knowledgable but he does not quite have the right instincts.

    So if you have questions on the details, contact her direct. She may answer some questions

  5. Was there anything on that site authored by Palin? The last time I looked at SarahPac it was little more than an empty placeholder. She has recently been putting her positions out via Facebook, and that seems to include pieces written either by her, or under her direct supervision. PACs will be with us until there is a major change in campaign finance law, but they are not as important in campaigns as they were even last election cycle. Facebook and other social media could become major venues for political debate in the current election cycle.

    I agree that Palin has not yet fully articulated her views. The spiteful attacks by the marching morons in the last election cycle did much to prevent any rational examination of her qualifications and political philosophy. I believe she is a potential leader within the conservative movement, but she has yet to prove that she has enough substance to back up the charisma.
