Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book.

Palin for President. A bad idea?

It will be if she runs as a third party candidate. Here's the story this post is based on;

Washington, DC ( -- In a new interview with a radio show set to air next week, pro-life former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin says she will run for president against pro-abortion Barack Obama "if it's right." Palin has been speaking before pro-life groups in an effort to build support from the movement.

In an interview with "100 Huntley Street," a daily Christian talk show based in Ontario, Palin said she "doesn't know politically what is next for me."

Palin said she would consider a bid to "pursue" the presidency in 2012 if she believes it is the best thing to do to help average Americans with the challenges they face.

"If I can help provide some encouragement, some inspiration, some hope for them to get through their battles and make good decisions and get through a challenge, because that's what we've been able to do, then I am going to stay focused on that," Palin said.

"Whether that's on a local level in my own little town of Wasilla, or in the Oval Office, if it's right, then we will pursue that," she added.

"I do believe that it is a wise thing for us to put our lives in our Creator's hands," she said. "I put my life into God's hands and say, I'm going to do the best that I can every day to bring positive change to people that perhaps need some help. Need opportunity, too."

"That's what I'm going to do, day to day, not necessarily knowing what will bring to my family, to my country, to my life, in the next year, two years, three years down the road," she added.

The comments are considered the most serious since Palin said in February on Fox News that it would be "absurd" not to consider a potential presidential run.

Palin told the Christian radio show she and her family has had an "exciting and full ride" since her running with Senator John McCain in 2008.

Like it or not, only the two major parties have enough of a power base and the resources to field successful contenders for the Oval Office. If the Republicans were in more of a decline than they already are I'd say there would be an opportunity for a third party to take over. But that isn't the case. They're more like the Democrats than not but still maintain SOME discernible differences (the recent Senate vote on Obamacare being a good example).

Currently she is no favorite of the Republican leadership. Her best bet is to continue stirring up the grass roots, appearing at Tea Party events, speaking out often and with clarity. Should she continue to do that the GOP will be reluctantly forced to acknowledge the appeal of her ideas & positions. IF that happened we might see former Gov. Palin on a national ticket.

But if she goes the route of a third party candidate we'd better suck it up and prepare for another eight years of B.O.. A third party candidate, no matter how strong the appeal to conservatives, will only dilute opposition to the regime in power.

Just my opinion.

From the ether, it appears that while she's popular, she's not that popular like there's reservations because of how the MSM shreded her during the campaign. Personally, I'd go for a Golda Meir or Maggie Thatcher type and she ain't it.

Rick, Golda Meir or Maggie Thatcher types aren't too common within our political system.

I'd originally thought Michelle Bachmann might be good but she's seems to deliberately play on people's fears. Scaring the voters with boogeymen doesn't say anything good. Proof of that was found with Tancredo, he was a one trick pony who had an incredible knack for tarring all Hispanics with the same brush (here I'm thinking of his comments regarding Miami looking like a Third World country. It probably does but there is a world of difference between the Cubans and other Latinos).

Palin might not be perfect but if she runs on the Republican Party ticket she'll get my vote. So far she seems authentic and not beholden to any special interest groups.
