Beck and Palin talk about faith and hope for the country

Sarah Palin appeared on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News yesterday. They discussed the truth that the founding fathers bowed their knees and their heads to God and asked for guidance as they crafted the documents that the United States is governed by still today. Palin who should be nicknamed “Plain-spoken-Palin” tells how the last year and a half has driven her to her knees to seek guidance from God.


This is a key statement in defining the support that Palin garnishes. The misconception is that leaders like Palin want to make Christianity a requirement. The statement would be much more fairly stated as “Our government has room for leaders who gain their ideals and principle from Christianity.” The Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, did not declare Christianity as a national religion, but most of the authors of the documents sought the direction of God to author the decrees.


If Palin had no support, she would not be the subject of daily talking points. However, Palin has been inappropriately labeled as a populist. The real question is why are people supporting her? It is not Palin, it is the voice of the supporters and they have a resounding message. Is anyone asking the supporters why they want to support her? It seems like the greatest way to silent the supporters is to discredit Palin.


Our government has room for leaders who seek God’s face as they govern. Palin says in her interview with Beck that she is not going to tell anyone that they must follow God, however, it is the choice that she makes.

    Plain-spoken-Palin maybe, but Glenn Beck is the one who pull the blanket back of the politicians in bed with special interest, lobbyist and union leaders.

    Palin is more than a target. She is a representative. The media says she has star quality, her and Obama, I do not argue that. She just finished a photo opt with In Touch magazine. Sarah has a conservative governing hand, but it is her willingness to take on the big dogs and come out alive that is the big drawl. The people that hate her the most are the ones proving that she can take what ever they dish out.

    I got "Going Rogue" for Christmas and I'm halfway through it. I just like how she tells the story without putting a big slant on everything. The stories stand up on their own or fall on their own. All she is responsible for is telling the way it happened. There is no spin doctor.

    Could somebody explain why they see this woman as a viable leader? Yeah, she is good looking, great smile, knows how to wink (real lost art). She is not qualified to govern. When Alaska thaws out from they will figure this out.

    I like her Greg. What more do you need to know. Just because you would not vote for her does not mean that no one else would. If she is not to your liking you have the right not to vote for her. But, it will be a shock is she is not running in 2012.
