It's Time to Take a Stand

There has been a lot of conjecture about the motivation of the liberals who have launched personal attacks on Governor Sarah Palin. Some have cited guilt quickened by watching Sarah Palin walk the walk and adhere to the conservative values that liberals scorn. Others have cited the bias and misinformation generated by liberal media. I think that both of these are true, but there is also a strong political component to these attacks.

Sarah Palin has been a strong and responsible governor who has managed her state’s resources wisely and upheld strong ethical standards. In fact, she cleaned up the good-old-boys establishment before she ever entered office. Her
reimbursement of the State of Alaska for her children’s traveling expenses was well above usual expectations for one in her position. Although she had followed the precedents set by the two previous governors for family travel and the Alaska Personnel Board found no wrongdoing, Governor Palin agreed to pay for 9 trips for her children. Her attorney, Thomas Van Flein, made this remark in an e-mail, “The rules were, and are, being changed in midstream for Governor Palin. However, as noted in the agreement at the time 'the Governor wants to exceed minimum legal standards.'"

It is known that Obama was directly involved in the “Troopergate” investigation, and it is suspected that Democrat operatives are heavily involved in the attacks and smears against Governor Palin. All you have to do is go online to see them at work. The liberal bloggers daily pollute the Internet with ridicule and outright lies in an effort to belittle and demean Governor Palin. It should be obvious to anyone that the intensity of these efforts demonstrates how much of a threat Sarah Palin is to their status quo.

Hollywood and the late night shows have joined in the radical left’s efforts to belittle this godly woman. After all, it is the celebrities that party in the White House and that raised tons of money for Obama’s campaign. Never in my lifetime have I seen any political figure attacked so intensely on such a personal basis. Not satisfied with their attacks on Governor Palin, they have now turned to demeaning and belittling her children. This has to stop. This is America, and we just don’t allow people to be treated this way, especially someone so undeserving of these attacks as Sarah Palin is.

It is time for those with conscience to stand up and say enough is enough. We won’t put up with character assasination attempts on an outstanding governor and the crude attacks on an ethical, morally upright woman’s children. The protest against David Letterman was just the beginning. No longer can we be silent in the face of such evil. With modern technology, we have the means to register our protests, to boycott when appropriate, and to stand up to politically-motivated personal attacks against Governor Palin and her family. Let’s roll!
