Palin is not Conservative, Christian or Competent! Abuse of Power, Unethical Behavior and High Taxes

Did you ever think that perhaps “conservat­ive enough” by Sarah Palin’s standards might be too far right for the rest of us Republican­s and independen­ts?

Most of us are not wealthy and are neither racist nor homophobic. We are not all evangelica­l Christians. We are merely commonsense people, most of whom have faith in God, but respect people who do not share our faith (we pray for them rather than judge them); we believe strongly in fiscal restraint, less government intrusion in our lives, a fair taxation system and an agenda that is not only without discrimination but also includes all people regardless of their race, religion, sexual preference or economic status.

 We “RINOS,” as we have been labeled by the far-right commentators, are the Republican Party, too.

 If the eventual nominee of the GOP is not “conservative enough” for Sarah Palin or the Tea Party to endorse, then perhaps it is they who are not listening.

    It won´t be long before the far right starts smiling and waving at conservatives like me, trying to earn back our support.

    They will be ignored.

    I wish they’d stop saying common sense. It’s not that common. But yes, I also like this article.

    Appreciate the sentiments of this comment but it still leaves me wondering why many Christians still feel they have to ‘pray’ for those who don’t share their faith as this person says. It’s a bit condescending to presume that one’s faith is the only chosen path and that others are in need of their charity or prayers. I know this person is correct in suggesting that most Christians are not like Palin. How embarrassing and humiliating it would be to be compared to such a money grubbing, heartless hypocrite.

    Nice thoughts Rob, old boy, but where the hell have you been? Hiding under a rock no doubt, going along with whatever the GOP wanted as long as it was winning (see 2010). Now that you’re going to lose and lose big you complain? I call BS, you are just like the Christians who are not fundies, willing to go along with whatever bat shit crazy spewage they vomit out until someone starts to call YOU on it as you share the same religious intentions. Only then, when you are being tarred with the same crazy person brush, do you balk at the name. As long as you can slide under and go along to get along you are perfectly happy to sit back and let others speak for you, even if you secretly don’t buy their bullshit. The second it starts to back fire, you get all up in your het and say the same shit you wrote above.
    I don’t buy it for one second. You and others like you were perfectly happy to let Bush trample all over the Constitution, void Habeas Corpus, and imprison innocent people after torturing them for misinformation. Only NOW, when it looks like your party is OVER, do you rise your head above the fray and snort a bit. Go back to your bunker in Butt Fuck where ever and take your medicine.

    Not all conservatives were happy with Bush. He left the Oval Office with one of the lowest, if not the lowest, approval rating in history. He was trying to keep the Republican Party together, something that today seems an impossibility. The GOP has been sucker punched by the far right, who roared loudest to impeach Bill Clinton, to put God back into the classroom, and to prevent gays from getting married.

    Most conservatives are like me. We share some of the prejudices of the far right, but take a much less judgmental approach. We prefer our children not be gay, but we resent any attempt to hound the ones who are. We dislike abortion, but don´t want to sanction a government-imposed ban on a woman´s freedom to choose. We think education needs to be based on morality (the top graduates of every Ivy League school are not motivated by money but to do what they believe is the right thing). We admire sincere religious leaders, but get nervous the moment religious prayers become obligatory.

    And we will vote for President Obama.

    I really do feel for the old school Republicans these days. Their party has been completely stolen away from them.

      I spent Sunday afternoon with several old school Republicans who happen to be family members. They’ve always classified themselves as Moderate Republicans and I would definitely agree. They aren’t worried about the same things as the Far RWNJ’s do-the alleged gay agenda (whatever that is supposed to be), the supposed war on religion, gay marriage and other items that social conservatives wring their hands over. It looks as if they’ll be voting for President Obama in 2012, just as they did in ’08 although the majority don’t even consider themselves to be Republicans anymore, even one of them who held state office for several terms as a Republican. They don’t recognize their party and want nothing to do with it as it is being portrayed at this time. I doubt they are as much a minority as the GOP would have us believe especially considering their past. However, they do not wish to be a part of the party as they see it today with their ignorance, greed and unrelenting push to eliminate any who are different from them, not only out of the party but out of the country. Perhaps, they are the ones who should gather their belongings and leave. It would be no great loss to the country as we know it now.

    So content-thief Syrin is reduced to using a letter-to-the-editor of a faraway daily paper?

    And the amateur writing it thinks the party responsible for most of the Debt is the “fiscal restraint” one.

    Where were you all when Reagan nearly tripled the Debt? When Bush43 started 2 wars then cut
    taxes? Fiscal restraint my a**

      Content thief? When someone posts the author of the article and the paper in which it was written, they most certainly don’t qualify as a thief. I may disagree with Syrin on policy matters when it comes to Conservative vs. Progressive but never once have I been treated rudely or told my opinion doesn’t matter or far worse as I have on other blogs. If you have a problem with what the author wrote, take it up with him. I was not aware that posting anything written by someone else indicated your approval of the same.

    Serially posting others’ ENTIRE posts /articles is frowned upon. For years.

    I imagined the guilt led to the drop-in-class of posting someone’s letter to the editor. (Not really an “author” nor “article” btw akrnc)

      So why read this blog, are you here in order to criticize? If Syrin had not given credit to the person who wrote the above, you’d have grounds to criticize. As it is, you’re looking for problems. What a waste of time!

      Oh really? Syrin posts articles to stimulate conversation here among conservatives and progressives. I have an idea: start your own blog and run it the way you want. I, for one, appreciate the articles and usually polite conversations here. I suspect the other writers also appreciate the wider exposure to their writing as well.

    If Mitt Romney doesn’t have the backbone to put that fraud in her place, than he doesn’t have the backbone required to lead this country. Instead of defending himself, he should have gone on the offense against such a ridiculous critic, like this:

    “Well, if she means compared to her preferred candidate, Newt Gingrich, that is up to the voters to decide. But to be fair, maybe she didn’t mean that…it seems she backed off her suggestion to vote for Newt once it became clear that voters were ignoring her advice. Now, if she means compared to herself, then why isn’t she running? It’s very easy, although not what I personally view as a conservative characteristic, to throw bombs from the sidelines at candidates who are doing the actual work.”

    Thank you everyone for your support. I appreciate each of you. Every once in a while I’ll break loose and right a post, but, for the most part I present my opinion about most articles here in the comment section. If you don’t know already, I live in Wasilla, Alaska, I personally know Sarah and Todd. I’ve tried to document for 5 years now the wonders of Sarah Palin. I believe all I can do is keep current with the ebb and flow of her usefulness to the media by re-posting articles from around the web.

    Most would know the reason why I thought this article to be worth your time.

    ” not “conservative enough” for Sarah Palin or the Tea Party”
    I’m having such a hard time defending issues and causes that I truly am passionate about because because when Palin speaks of it, she makes null & void. It’s a phenomenon, I’ve seen it happen over and over, again.

    Although Palin’s public personia has been shot threw as being nothing more than a grifter, liar, opportunist and complete idiot! There are still those who continue to pay homage to Sarah Palin the unethical politian, uninformed commentator extraordinaire. Conservative? Sarah Palin? Enough is enough! Whether someone is a RINO is ridiculous! Sure there are certained planks and points that seperate us, but everyone doesn’t have to believe the same..During the 24 months of the “Fleecing of Alaska and America” I was saying that I’m conservative to the core- Republican No more!
