SARAH PALIN -TOO TOUGH?
By Ken Bylund

This morning, one of the many desperate CNN analysts said that
Sarah had bullied Barack Obama; those reporters are very
close to being exposed with trying to bend reality to match their
desires. Democracy is supposed to be about 'rule of majority'
in that the people select representatives that
are periodically elected to office for the purpose of fixing
problems, not creating conflict. The needs start with the
care and good of American Citizens around the world, not about
sparing the feelings of those who hate us; our representatives
job is to investigate the truth, wherever it may lead them, then
inform and rally support via arguments based on honest, reasonable,
and rational discourse... and yet, we are inundated with these
"un-elected talking heads" doing everything in their
power to steer the majority toward weakness and dependence.
Sarah Palin did a spectacular job at that discourse thing last
night, the honest, reasonable, rational argument; and after the
hatchet job the newsmedia have dumped on her since finding out
she, not them other guys they had spent months preparing for...
sorry about that... they're fuming that Sarah Palin would "hit
back." Like, "we can hit you with everything we can
dig up, but you can't hit back... because? That would be shrill?
That would be divisive? Let's not forget vile and nasty! LOL!!!
Every time I hear someone say, "the fact of the matter
is," the next thing out of their mouth is flawed, and
more often than not, an outright lie. Like preparing that next
sentence with the term "clearly", like what
they are about to say is un-arguable, can't possibly be another
reasonable position. If the 'talking heads' want respect, they
need to earn it by staying honest - tough to do when trying to
bend us to their elitist views. Thing that is hardest to identify,
is motive - what is the benefit for American citizens to be
diluted into another United Nations style third world mob? America's
most attractive attribute is the potential for anyone to reach
for and win or fail to achieve excellence.
I like Barak Obama, think he's smart and a gifted orator, but
not sure he isn't out to change that balance, rule of democracy
and republic. We need both in balance or we've got nothing. Senator
McCain is a good man, smart, experienced... but old. Then, Edward
Gibbon wrote in his epoch history of the Roman Empire, about
the failed rule of the boy Gratian, "... an education may
be got from teachers and books, but talent is forged from experience
and adversity." [paraphrased] I think we can agree that
John McCain has sufficient quantity of those ingredients, no
one is going to challenge his life experience or the adversity
he has endured - this man and woman have the edge. Not too tough
for this job!
