Running for President of the United States is one of the toughest and most stressing jobs that someone can undertake. Time, money, the right inner circle and of course the support never come easily, nothing does when you're seeking the most powerful political office on the planet. Many Republicans will enter the ring for the 2012 presidential election ready to fight for the title of Republican Presidential Nominee. Each have their own level of name recognition, support from the people, the finances and the experience to embark down the campaign trail. But only one can make it to the end and have the privilege of seeking the White House on their party's ticket.
Sarah Palin was first introduced to the rest of America during the 2008 presidential election when she was chosen by then-Republican Presidential Nominee, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) that August. Her coming into the picture as McCain's running mate surprised many people on both sides, because other people were being mentioned as possible additions to the ticket, such as Tim Pawlenty, the current Governor of Minnesota. Well-known or not, Governor Sarah Palin was welcomed with enormous praise after she was introduced to the masses. She was now a national figure and a huge force to be reckoned with. McCain-Palin 2008 then began their trek to defeat then-Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill) for the chance to work for the American People.
Of course we all know that Barack Obama ended up getting the nod, and John McCain continued his job as one of the United States Senators for Arizona and Sarah Palin returned to her job as Governor of Alaska. After the hard-fought election, people began wondering what was next for Governor Palin and whether or not she would consider running for President of the United States herself in the future. Then she abruptly resigned as Alaska's Governor in July, 2009, and said that she doesn't "need a title" to do some good for the people of America. Even without a title, she proved to be a huge political force during the recent election where most of her endorsees won their primaries and went on to become victorious in the general election. This was Conservatism at work.
Election 2010 was only a test for Sarah Palin, and she passed it mightily. She showed the American People, the Republican Establishment and the Democrats how the job is done and what is needed in order to bring this country back up again. There were also many so-called Conservatives who said that Mrs. Palin was "in over her head" and wouldn't have that huge of an impact during the election. She shot back each and every time someone dared to doubt her and her endorsees, and proved them all wrong in the end. The biggest winner was Sarah Palin, and there are some that suggest that it was she who helped the Republicans gain the House of Representatives and the majority of State Governorships. Some would also come forward to blame her for the GOP's loss of the United States Senate, but we all know this is bogus and pathetically lame. The Establishment GOP cost themselves the Senate, not Sarah Palin and not her endorsees. Losers, they are.
It was clear that Sarah Palin was displaying the style she would use during a possible 2012 run to defeat President Barack Obama. Sarah rallied Conservatives in way that hasn't been done since Ronald Reagan in the 1980 presidential election, she dug them out of the sand and got them to pay attention and become involved in the fight to save America. The truth was told, no bull was flung, and everyone fought hard for victory. Conservatives emerged out from a prolonged hibernation to see their country led back to a time where the people they elected worked for them, and not the other way around. They listened to Sarah Palin's plea for the need for Constitutional Conservatives and those who would fight hard to bring the United States back to the founding principles envisioned by our Founding Fathers over 200 years ago. Candidates who championed lower taxes, more jobs, less spending and a strong military were cascaded from the bottom of the pile and found themselves at the top with just one action: an endorsement from former Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska.
Sarah Palin is qualified to be President of the United States. She has shown herself to be just like the average American who has to live on a budget, and knows what it is like to "want more" and have to work harder in order to achieve their goals. She knows how it is to be a working parent with a house full of kids, and she does extremely well at remaining ever so busy and still finding time to love up her wonderful kids. Mrs. Palin can identify with the average American, and that is someone worthy to be given a chance. It is time for our great country to take a step on new territory, and choose the one who we can most identify with, who can electrify an entire base in the matter of months, and someone who can - and has the experience - to change things around in order to make America great again. We want someone new, and Sarah Palin is that fresh face. A real American can handle the toughest and most powerful job in the world. And Sarah Palin is that real American.
Sarah Palin for America.
