I don't have anything particularly patriotic or inspiring to say today. I'm a little depressed about the state of our country and the government boot that is squashing us. The Wine Commonsewer has the best Independence Day post I've seen all morning. I highly recommend it as a kick in the ass for all of us to get in the street and be heard. There's a small tea party going on in the next county, and I'm thinking I might head up to it this afternoon. It won't be as flashy and exciting as the big city parties, but they'll kick up some dirt, I hope.
I think Sarah Palin declared her own independence yesterday. I think that woman is just AWESOME! I just hope she kicks the republican party to the curb and goes indie. I know I have a few GOP fans that read here, and I've nothing against the REAL republicans, but the party's been taken over by RINO's and Neo-cons, and they've not been much better to Sarah Palin than the democrats. With friends like that, who needs enemies? And the libertarians??? Generally, I like them, but good god, what a bunch of elitist, sanctimonious, bitter, cynical, and uninformed sarcastic brats there are over at "a certain think-tank blog that many of us read". No wonder they can't get anyone elected. They probably won't admit it now, but I remember last fall how they were all slobbering over Obama just because he wasn't Bush, yet they consider anyone that votes for the lesser of two evils part of the reason that we're stuck with two political parties that keep their dual stranglehold on power.
Really... Hypocrite much? Pot meet kettle.
Anyway, I don't think Sarah is going to run for office. I think she's going to rally the troops to take back this country from a gobbling and out of control government monster. She draws a crowd, fires people up, and we know she can organize and get things done. I love how she gave her whole, personal, sincere, and heartfelt speech yesterday without a teleprompter or notes. The mainstream media may have said she was rambling, but I suspect it's just been a while since they saw anyone speak her own words off the cuff, instead of reading someone else's words in a rehearsed manner from a teleprompter even when he's simply making a two sentence statement.
Here's a picture of Sarah as she left her press conference yesterday.
Does that look like a woman running away in tears or quitting before anything hits the fan?
I think she's going RINO hunting.
Happy Independence Day!
