We have one of the purest of heart running for the 2nd highest office in the land and, just like an obscure young female leader over 500 years before her, she must suffer the slings and arrows of the non-believers. The parallels between Sarah Palin and Joan of Arc are uncanny. Both were young, beautiful, received visions from God and were unadulterated by the world around them when they became known. And both were catapulted into leadership when their nations needed them the most.
Our time is dire and our need is great. War is on the horizon and the time to elect a great leader is now. Disregard her running mate as he is merely an inconsequential tool to lead her to power. She will succeed him in short order.
Search deep within yourselves and, like me, you will hear the calling to follow this natural leader, even into the firey abyss if necessary. Hers is the word.
Make no mistake, history will remember this modern female warrior for many centuries. Future historians, poets and artists will honor her in story, art and song. Her likeness will be trademarked and many products deemed pure and strong enough will be sold with her name or image. Such is the great influence she will have on our society.
She will prevail where other fail. Just watch.
People voting for the McCain/Palin ticket are voting for Sarah and not McCain. Sarah is the future of the Republican party and the future of American politics.
McCain's speech clearly showed he's not the douche-bag the dems have accused him of being, but Sarah's speech was other-worldly. She not only hit the ball out of the park, she ripped the cover off the ball and broke the bat, sending the whirling stump of maple bouncing off the thick skull of Biden and into the heart of Obama.
Even McCain knows that he's 2nd fiddle to Sarah and he will certainly adjust his platform to accommodate her *true* conservative agenda, and not the faux conservative agenda proposed by McCain.
All hail Sarah, America's true leader!
Sarah Palin will be the savior of the Republican ticket. She is Angelina Jolie mixed with Margaret Thatcher and a dash of Elenor Roosevelt. A true leader who, like Bush, has received the word of God and not afraid to say it. Her church (Assembly of God) may be on the fringes but she isn't. She's a messianic bolt of lightning that will galvanize an otherwise disjoint Republican party.
She is the perfect answer to the rock star Obama and this is why the Democrats hate her.
Lynda Green IS a big fat bitch. So what if Sarah laughed when someone else had the honesty to say it? How different is this than sitting in your living room and laughing at a commedian saying it on TV?
All I see from Sarah Palin is good wholesome values and good humor to boot. What's not to love about her?
I am very much looking forward to a true return to conservative values under Sarah Palin. Bush is a pretender and used conservative values for political gain. With Palin we can expect someone who will fight for smaller government, fiscal responsibilty and integrity. We can also expect Sarah to help further traditional religious values by advocating the teaching of creationism, promoting abstinence, and helping to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
Generals are very smart people, and I trust what they have to say much more than some liberal poster here on Yahoo.
Note that Petraeus states that "...sectarian killings have dropped by two-thirds in recent months" Why isn't the liberal press printing that news??
will win this war: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070426/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq
...the top American military spokesman insisted the U.S. command felt "very comfortable" that it is making "steady progress" in restoring order in Baghdad.
"We are seeing those initial signs of progress being made," Maj. Gen. William C. Caldwell told Associated Press Radio.
Attacks like those today won't deter us from winning the peace in Iraq:
Attacks like these might kill hundreds at a time but we're freeing 10s of millions and giving them a better life. Do the math!
Do you really believe that corporate and financial interests control international events and not the leaders of our countries? I don't buy it. How is it that our politicians are manipulated into doing their bidding?
Langosta, as much as we agree on many issues, here we part ways. Even if I don't agree with many things he writes, goprefugee has very well-reasoned posts and he rarely engages in personal attacks. I like him even when I don't agree with him.
Our ability to engage in spirited yet fair discussions is what has made this country great. Let's not lose sight of the big picture.
I am talking about a man who is much like another man who over 150 years ago was not popular among his peers, was though of as an "ape" and slogged on through a war that many in the northern Democratic party wanted to abandon and let the states split. He held his ground, freed the slaves and today is revered by many as our greatest president. That man was, of course, Abraham Linkoln.
Bush, too, will achieve this status, and likely surpass it. I put to you all that someday there will be a monument in George Bush's honor that dwarfs the Linkoln monument. His head will likely grace Mt. Rushmore and his birthday will become a national if not a world holiday. All you nay-sayers will become dust but Bush's legacy will shine through the next millenia and beyond. You Bush haters are a pathetic lot and aren't even fit to carry his soiled underwear.
I agree with you both.
Unfortunately, we're liberating a spineless bunch that won't fight for this precious gift that George Bush has given them. I can hear the wimpering cries of "P-P-Please don't shoot me" or "Don't shoot my children" and lots of "Whaaaaa, whaaaa". Where is the backbone of these people? Follow Bush and Cheney's lead and stand and fight for what's right for crying out loud.
It is better to live one day standing than a lifetime on your knees.
When Galileo stated that the Earth revolves around the sun he was dismissed as a crazed heretic.
When DaVinci showed how flying machines were possible no one listened to him for over 400 years.
When Archimedes showed how one could lever-screw the entire planet no one listened to him either.
So it is with George W Bush and his fight against terrorism. George is fighting an unpopular battle counter to conventional wisdom. But this is the supreme fight of our day. History will show him to be right and his name will shine like those luminaries above through the ages for his foresight.
Why does it matter that Bush and Cheney didn't serve in the armed forces? So what if they don't spill their own blood in keeping us free and in liberating those around the world, however ungrateful they may be. The pens that these two paragons of liberty wield are far more potent than any gun or tank or smart bomb ever will be. As I see it, Bush and Cheney are political Rambos who are fighting to make this world a better place. They aren't out for any personal glory and they don't care if they aren't popular. And they know that many can't appreciate their sacrifice at this time but know that time and history will be on their side.
I have no doubt that the Lord will hold a special place in heaven for George Bush and Dick Cheney. Their love of humanity and courage to follow their convictions truly make them kings among men.
when he should be fighting to keep his homeland free: http://www.netscape.com/viewstory/2007/03/21/-iraqi-man-struggles-to-save-his-family/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.iraqslogger.com%2Findex.php%2Fpost%2F2017%2FIraqi_Man_Struggles_to_Save_His_Family&frame=true
It breaks my heart to see such an ungrateful people. They are sub-human in their miopic concern for self and family. I wish these people had one small bit of the courage that our leaders have. If Bush or Cheney were in the same situation they'd be leading the camel charge against the enemy and winning back the country one dead insurgent at a time.
God bless Bush and Cheney and God bless the USA!
What gratitude these bastards have: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070319/ap_on_go_ot/iraq_poll
After the sacrifices that we've made to give them the most precious of gifts: freedom.
Do our troops show fear in maintaining their liberty? Did George Bush and Dick Cheney show fear in the face of liberal opposition?
It is a pity that they cannot embrace the gift thrown before them. Pearls before swine, I say.
z - this isn't a war on terror and it never was. Why do you think the federal government hasn't taken any real action to close the borders? The truth is this is a war to establish military and financial control over the Middle East. And with that control will come long-term benefits for corporate and financial interests -- the ones who make and benefit from all major decisions made by our governement these days. While it costs the American taxpayer in the short term it will also pay long-term benefits both in terms of security and our ability to continue with our world-class lifestyles.
There are many here who accuse the administration of being stupid and short-sighted. I don't believe that for a minute. George Bush is much smarter than you realize. Did you ever stop think that maybe this situation in Iraq is going exactly to plan? Are you sure that a sectarian civil war in the region isn't in the US long-term interests?
Don't count on seeing the troops come home any time soon because there is a lot of work still to be done in that region of the world.
hippo, your logic amazes me. Try turning on a lightbulb in your attic if you get my drift. The earth is a closed system and matter cannot be created or destroyed. Thus, we humans cannot affect any material change on Earth.
And humans are not pitiful but very powerful and through technology we will shape our world as we want. God willing, the liberals won't stop us from our true manifest destiny.
God bless America and God bless George Walker Bush.
z - I do not accept that life is deteriorating. In fact, I believe our brightest days are ahead of us. I for one will be soaking up all that this beautiful life has to offer. Accept that technology will cure all our ills. Accept it. Just as the bleak working conditions of 18th century England were eradicated along with its pollution, so too will our ecological environment be cleaned up with minimal effort in the future.
And how do you know there wasn't significant pollution 150 million years ago when the dinosaurs ruled the earth. Have you not heard that cattle pollution is significant today? It's true -- cattle produce a lot of methane. Well, dinosaurs were a hellava lot bigger than cows and there were many more of them. Sounds to me like the prehistoric world have a huge methane problem.
Admit it, global warming is a farce!
Right you are again Langosta. You not only have a keen sense of history but you can cut through the BS of pseudo-science.
The earth is continally changing and evolving and the reason that we humans are at the top of the food chain is that we are ADAPTABLE. And now we have technology that will further aid us in conquering our world. We have technology today that can counter the so-called green house effect. And soon we'll be constructing nano-bots that will eliminate pollution and restore our oceans to full health. The whiney liberal nay-sayers will have you believe that humans best years are behind us. I say the best is yet to come!
While I was watching Jurrassic Park last night I was struck by the irony that is lost on our liberal friends -- it was a massive global climate change over a short period that led directly to the ascendence of man. Had mass extinction of the dinosaurs *not* occurred humans would still be relegated to caves and we wouldn't be having this discussion right now.
I say BRING IT ON and once again we'll accomplish the mission in spite of the nay-sayers.
