Palin Articulates Her Political Philosophy

In Orlando, Sarah Palin joked about what she wrote on her hand. But that is her political philosophy and that is her plan for taking back America - Energy Independence, tax cuts and lifting America's spirits. Sarah Palin is now defining herself.

In his first inaugural address, delivered on January 20, 1981, Reagan said with the nation in an economic recession, he declared that "government is not the solution to our problem." Instead, he proposed to remove "the roadblocks that have slowed our economy and reduced productivity," reawaken "this industrial giant," get "government back within its means," and reduce "punitive tax burdens."

It worked before; it will work again.

Gov Palin Rocks Lincoln Day Dinner

Video retrieved from PalinTV

Governor Palin rocked the Orange County, FL Lincoln Day fund-raiser, attracting over 1300 supporters and raising over $110,000 (Damron, 2010, ¶1). In her speech delivered at the Shingle Creek Resort, Gov Palin targeted liberals, the media and the Washington elite (Damron, 2010, ¶1). "Americans get it," Palin said. "In Washington, they don't get it" (Damron, 2010, ¶1). She said "the GOP would restore 'common sense' to government in the ... November elections." (Damron, 2010, ¶1).

"On Friday, Palin advocated drilling for oil and natural gas to gain energy independence but said nothing specifically about such exploration off Florida's coast, a source of heated political dispute" (Damron, 2010, ¶6).

Gov Palin remained on message with Reagan Conservatism, advocating "lower taxes, less spending, more freedom and smaller government," (Damron, 2010, ¶6) and also called for Floridians to unseat US Rep. Alan Grayson, a Democrat from Orlando "for the rest of America" (Damron, 2010, ¶7).

This stop is the latest in Governor Palin's international speaking tour, which also includes stumping for US Rep. Michele Bachman, Senator John McCain and Governor Rick Perry. Today, Governor Palin will speak at the Taking our Country Back Tour event in Tulsa, OK.
