There is a bit of a an ongoing division among supporters of Sarah Palin. While most have accepted that she did not run for president, and will not be the Republican nominee for president, there is a still a group that refuses to accept this hard, cold fact.
These people see Mitt Romney as the Great Satan™ and think he’s as bad, or worse, than Barack Obama.
I don’t subscribe to that thinking. Like many Conservatives, I’m more concerned about the future of our country, than settling old scores. And believe me, there are plenty of old scores to settle with Team Romney, when it comes to Sarah Palin. And I do mean plenty.
Personally, I’m quite disturbed by those who refuse to accept that Mitt as the Republican nominee. It’s counterproductive, and wastes time that could be spent supporting actual candidates who are running for office. I’ve been and will continue to be quite vocal about this.
The only way we are ever going to reform the Republican Party, and ultimately government itself, is to support and elect principled Conservatives to Congress.
Sarah herself has constantly said one can’t place their hope in any one politician, and she’s right. You can’t tie your hopes and dreams to any politician. No matter who they are, they will let you down. All you can do is make the best of the situation in front of you.
Wayne Mazza is someone who’s thoughts we’ve shared with readers before, been well received. He’s a member of many Palin oriented groups on Facebook. Though he’s talking to these groups, he’s also talking to the rest of us as well.
While I don’t share Wayne’s idea that somehow there will be a divine intervention that will make Sarah the presidential nominee, I do share, and applaud, Wayne’s common sense approach to it all. He knows what is most important.
Sarah has a strong, passionate group of supporters. More loyal than I’ve seen to any candidate since Ronald Reagan. But there are some who get highly upset every time she endorses someone they don’t like, even though Sarah always explains herself and makes a solid case for that endorsement. Then there are those who refuse to accept reality, and for them it’s either Sarah or nothing.
Here Wayne tries to bring everyone together, and reminds everyone we must work toward the common goal of defeating Barack Obama. In order to defeat Obama, we’ll have to elect Mitt Romney. That’s our only option.
That doesn’t mean we can’t be critical of Romney, Lord knows I’m not going to let up on him one little bit. But I understand the future viability of the United States, as a nation, hangs in the balance. We have to decide which is more important, holding grudges as we watch America destroyed, or do something to stop the bleeding and at least get us back on the road to recovery.
The best way to honor Sarah Palin is to do everything in our power to help elect Conservative across the nation.
With that, take it away Wayne:
Are we United or are we Divided
By Wayne Mazza:
There are many groups and pages on Facebook dedicated to supporting Gov. Palin. It is great to see all the enthusiasm in spreading the ideals of this wonderful Northern light from Alaska, our Sarah.
Many of us have tried and continue to try to see that Gov. Palin is our nominee for president and insist she will be our next president. Others have accepted the fact that she will not be our nominee and are continuing to support her in other ways. Some of these ways are making contact with candidates she has endorsed to promote their election, putting together a game plan to see that if 2012 is not viable, she is our nominee in 2016.
These are good efforts on both sides of the coin. The important thing is that WE ALL ARE STILL SUPPORTING GOV. PALIN. That is where we are United in cause.
However, some are allowing emotion, not thought, to interfere and this is dividing us. I have seen groups disappear, people leaving one group for another, people being outright rude and cruel because other peoples thoughts do not line up with theirs.
There are people being criticized that have put a lot of effort into not only trying to get Gov. Palin elected, but to provide us all information to chew on. There are people leaving groups, going to other groups and using the new group as a platform to criticize the people of the group they left. What good is it to tear fellow conservatives down when we should be building them up. Hell, the DNC, LSM, and RNC is already doing that.
None of us are experts, at least I know I am not getting paid for my political knowledge, but we are all trying one way or another to support the most honest, trusted, and accomplished ex-politician since Reagan to see she becomes president this year or at another time.
This is no time to cannibalize one another just because we have differences. What we need to remember is to have respect and follow the rules of each group. In other words, if you want to talk “Sarah for president”, do it on groups that are pushing it, if you want to support her in other ways, go to the groups supporting that. We can do both, its not that hard.
How can we say we are supporters of Gov. Palin when you hear things like:
1. If Gov. Palin supports Romney, I am done with her.
2.She supported Hatch, she is a sellout, I am through with her.
3.If she is not the nominee, I am not voting.
I myself have had a change of thought. I myself had said I would do number three above, but I know in my heart that is foolishness and letting emotion rule my thoughts.
For Christians, we know the rules of this world mean nothing to God, that all things are possible with God regardless if Mitt Romney has 1144 delegates or 2000 hard delegates.
I know we are all praying for a miracle at the convention and I will hold strong for Gov. Palin. If it is God’s will for her to be the nominee it will be, but if that is not to be, then after that convention my priority shifts to what is best for this country.
I will not sit home on Nov. 6, 2012. My sole responsibility will be to go into that booth, and pull the lever for the Mittster if he is our nominee. But, and hear this but loud and clear, I will continue to help Gov. Palin in any way I can to save this country and that includes helping her get elected in 2016.
Try and look at the situation like a football team. Not everyone plays offense, or defense, or special teams. Not everyone is a quarterback or a running back, or a line backer or a lineman. But they all have one thing in common, they are a cohesive unit with the goal of winning. And winning is not the result in all games, but the big picture is to win enough to qualify for the Super Bowl, to win all the marbles “THE BIG PICTURE”.
Are we not all in our individual groups doing the same thing? The only difference is we are a bunch of parts trying to operate separately instead of together.
When I say together, I mean we can continue to work in our groups & pages but also help out in others and respect each other.
This bickering solves nothing, it only makes enemies. Good Grief, that is the DNC way not conservatives.
Again, I remind you all, if you truly support Gov. Palin, remember what Gov. Palin has said numerous times “ANYBODY BUT OBAMA”!!
I am sure what has been done to her and her family has been a bitter pill, but she has NOT LOST FOCUS ON THE PRIZE, and that prize is removing Obama from office.
We made two big mistakes this year, failure to educate the public on the her accomplishments, and getting state delegates early for her. We will not repeat those mistakes.
If we really have faith in Gov. Palin, follow her lead, help where you can, keep her and her family in your prayers. I trust her political instinct much more than myself.
I have made many friends on Facebook, and I will continue to have respect for your points of view.
God bless all of you, God bless Sarah and her family, and God Bless America.
