Will GOP National Convention pro-life support energize conservative voters

Sarah Palin has actively supported Susan B. Anthony List pro-life efforts

The country is now in the third quarter of a presidential election year that may very well determine the direction of the nation for the next quarter century in the battle to establish whether the right to life for the unborn will thrive or wither on the vine.  It is clear that historic battle lines are now being drawn, and liberal advertising blitzes are being planned and will be unleashed against Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan next week. This will occur after the GOP National Convention delegates formerly adopt the pro-life plank along with the convention platform in Tampa, Florida.

This right to life platform stand is more than just a thrown-in addition to the party platform to be discarded after the convention nominates Mitt Romney as the Republican Party presidential nominee and Paul Ryan as the vice-presidential nominee. This is a clarion call to all supporters of life that the election is going to define leadership on life itself.

Liberals under President Obama will continue to fight to destroy life by defending a “mother’s” right to kill, to eliminate their child’s life.  Sure, it may be couched in neatly convenient neutral terms like ”woman’s right to choose”, but murder by way of abortion, is not a choice, it is a legalized death sentence for the unborn, and a continuing moral scandal supported by liberals who would rather support the “soul” of a tree, rather than the soul of a unborn creation of God.

The real question, is how committed are conservatives to fight for the future of an unborn child, when the Hollywood  firebombing machine is revving up as the GOP convention attendees begin to assemble in Tampa?  Is this simply a convention platform plank to bring in conservatives?  Or is the pro-life stance a rallying point, that has the full weight and credit of the U.S. Constitutional spirit that protects the personhood of each and every man, woman and child in this nation?

The Pro-life plank states in part, Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed, … We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

The words are not difficult to understand.  The sanctity of life is fundamental and it is complete!  The Fourteenth Amendment protections   must apply to an unborn child.  Their right to life such should and must be protected.  There is no reason for misinterpretation or equivocation.

This pro-life plank gives purpose and clarity of leadership to all convention delegates. Their vote and support, gives them an opportunity to distinguish themselves as warriors for protecting and preserving the right for a child. As they return to their hometowns they have to continue to fight to guarantee the unborn the same identical legal protections and privileges that anyone has in this great and wonderful nation.

The pro-life plank support is essentially a first step which can be likened to the Declaration of the Independence adoption by the Constitutional Convention in 1776.  Once it was adopted, there was cause for celebration, but the real battle of independence still had to be fought and more importantly still had to be won. Words of support will not win this war for life, but planning or taking part in pro-life activities in your community will help strengthen a victory for constitutional life federal legislation.

Pro-life activities are occurring this month. For example, the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) organization has begun a 30- stop national tour to raise grassroots attention concerning the Obama administration’s extremist pro-abortion record. Obama’s pro-abortion actions include continuing to use tax dollars to support Planned Parenthood’s abortion-related activities and refusing to protect, “baby girls from the lethal discrimination of sex-selective abortion,” according to SBA.

This week, SBA and Ohio Right to Life have joined SBA in taking the tour to Toledo, Dayton and Lima, Ohio on Wednesday. The state tour continues on Thursday to Cincinnati, Columbus and Zanesville, Ohio. The other battleground states on the tour include, Iowa, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Florida.

As conservative voters it is time to draw a distinct and unmovable line in the sand, where losing freedom and sacrificing justice for the unborn is a future that will no longer be tolerated in America.

The obligation of the nation’s patriot’s is not to yield sovereignty to the Hollywood elite, liberal punditry or to a president whose only obligation it seems is to singlehandedly  dismantle the U.S. Constitution’s personal and state’s rights.

Rather the citizen patriot should embrace their God given rights and insure that a nation built on moral biblical principles and constitutional rights, including the right to “life and liberty will not be abridged.

Founding Father and former President John Adams spoke on October 11, 1798, stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

So stand with strengthening the constitutional cords of our nation and defend its religious heritage in order to protect the right to life of the unborn, now, tomorrow and until their U.S. constitutional protection is won.  Now is that time!

Petition supports Sarah Palin America’s Heartland speech At GOP Convention

Send the RNC and the Romney campaign a message and sign the petition to “Let Sarah Speak.”

 

What is America’s mainstream republican leadership in the RNC or the Mitt Romney presidential campaign afraid of, by not letting Sarah Palin take the podium?

Are they in dread that Sarah Palin will wow the convention and America by drawing from her deep well of passionate and fervent feelings for America’s families suffering in the heartland? Does the Romney campaign feel somehow skittish that she will make a better case against Obama’s growing nightmarish handling of America’s economy and his intentional goal to undermine the U.S. constitution, than Romney or Ryan can? There are a lot of questions but no real honest answers available.

One answer to this lingering campaign non-commitment, is a petition supporting Palin speaking at the convention. You can sign and circulate it, to show your support for her continued conservative leadership and need to speak at the upcoming GOP Convention. Supporting her is a matter of principle not political gamesmanship. Let your principles and voice be heard.

After all, Governor Palin’s leadership has been, and continues to be genuine, principled, and unselfish. She has forgone the insider politics as usual approach, and instead has embraced the Tea Party’s inclusiveness and grassroots focus on conservative issues and solutions that have been neglected by the glad handing backroom political deal makers of either party.

So forgive Sarah Palin if her tireless campaigning for the past several years has been to build a new sense of political, social and fiscal issue empowerment that translates into real grassroots power. It seem that since the epicenter of power has shifted from Washington D.C., the liberal pundits and certain GOP elected officials have decided that Palin’s commitment to grassroots political power is both something to be feared as well as neutralized.

Now is not the time for Romney and Ryan to head into a presidential campaign battle with their fingers crossed hoping that Palin’s conservative supporters will somehow transfer their support for her to the GOP team, because of Ryan’s vice presidential selection.

This notion misses the point completely. Leadership and rallying troops is not like trading horses. This is not a time for political games playing. President Obama has launched an all out assault upon the American Constitution, and he has shown that he will take it apart piece by piece, with executive orders as often as he deems necessary. In battle, you don’t leave a field general at home in war, because you fear her command leadership will outshine you. This is war for America’s future not a beauty contest!

After this presidential election has long been logged into the annuals of digital history, those who will inherit the results of this election will either live in a nation severely economically and constitutionally diminished or a nation rescued from the brink of socialism and biblical principle abandonment.

In 1976, then, Governor Ronald Reagan understood the need to fight to preserve an America, 100 years from then.

At that time, President Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan had fought for the presidential nomination, which President Ford won. Instead of being bitter about the political combat and preventing Reagan from taking the convention podium, President Ford offered Reagan the opportunity to speak to an America that was in crisis.

Reagan’s speech added to the energy of the convention and helped to set into motion a new and refreshed vibrancy within the conservative movement.

Ronald Reagan reminded the convention attendees and America that in 2076, no one at present would know what kind of a world Americans will inherit. He said, “Will they look back with appreciation and say, ‘Thank God for those people in 1976 who headed off that loss of freedom, who kept us now 100 years later free, who kept our world from nuclear destruction’?… This is our challenge; and this is why here in this hall tonight, better than we have ever done before, we have got to quit talking to each other and about each other and go out and communicate to the world that we may be fewer in numbers than we have ever been, but we carry the message they are waiting for.”

Sarah Palin is carrying the message that millions in America’s heartland are waiting for. An election is won with more than a focus on numbers and budgets or hundreds of millions of dollars spent on television attack ads.

It is won in the grassroots campaign trenches found in Ohio counties and Pennsylvania coal fields and in the farmlands of Iowa, Indiana and Illinois and in the kitchens of homes in Texas, Colorado, Michigan, Florida and so many others. Sarah has been in the trenches and has worked tirelessly for the election of Tea Party backed conservative leaders like congressman Allen West of Florida, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, and many, many others.

Let her remind America at the convention, of the fierce urgency of now. As President Ronald Reagan eloquently stated, “Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.”

Sarah is keeping the faith for everyone in the nation’s heartland for the present and America’s future.

You can actually help to “Let Sarah Speak” by sending the RNC and the Romney campaign a message and sign the petition to “Let Sarah Speak.” Conservatives can send a message that like Reagan, you want to keep the faith for your family and America’s future. Help get the word out to other conservatives and let Sarah Speak. Click here to sign the petition. Its not over until it is over!

Texas Sized GOP Senate Nomination Captured By Cruz – Shows Palin Power!

The anointed Texas political establishment contender, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, was leading in the GOP runoff race to capture the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. He had a who’s who list of solid republican mainstream backers. Most state and national election experts had already inked Dewhurst into the senatorial win column.

Yet, in the conservative voter trenches of Texas, the real who ’s who that truly counted was the voters and a Tea Party movement that would not say die or give up. In their corner was the former Alaskan Governor named Sarah “I’m Not Afraid to Fight” Palin. Palin endorsed Ted Cruz, and Ted Cruz won! Boy did he win.

But that is not the whole story. GOP insider politics in Texas had Dewhurst leading comfortably. In fact, in one corner of the political ring was Dewhurst, and the royalty of Texas politics who came out in a big way for the 66-year-old Dewhurst. The Lt. Governor even loaned $24 million from his fortune to his campaign to insure his win.

In the other corner of the political ring was Cruz, who had been the former state solicitor general and had never run for office. He was the proud son of a Cuban immigrant, and was without GOP mainstream support. Therefore he was like Rocky Balboa entering the heavyweight fight with little experience but a lot of heart and most importantly he had lots and lots of conservative grass roots Texans in his corner.

This was the runoff election and in round two, Ted “Rocky Balboa” not only got his second wind, but he received conservative Tea Party support from Texas and around the nation. He also obtained conservative organizational backing, and endorsements from several U.S. Senators like Rand Paul of Tennessee and from former U.S. Sen. and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum. So the stage was set, or was it?

There had been news accounts circulating that Sarah Palin was leaning toward support of Cruz’s campaign effort which was endorsed by the Tea Party. Yet in a supposedly unrelated way comes an unsolicited announcement from former Vice President Dick Cheney, that Sarah Palin was supposedly not qualified to be president, when GOP presidential candidate U.S. Senator John McCain selected her in 2008.

Somewhat convenient and coincidental that Cheney’s announcement comes out in the period that Palin’s endorsement for Cruz is given, in one of the most important GOP backed establishment elections in the nation. One could speculate that this may have been a way to neutralize her endorsement’s effectiveness or create an air of diminishing importance? In other words they wanted to wish her and the Tea Party into the cornfield or cow pasture never to be seen again. Well it seems the Texas voters have already decided that one on Tuesday night. Texas endorses the Tea Party and Palin’s leadership.

When will these political dinosaurs understand that there is a new day in America? It would certainly be wise for the old style Washington insider political backroom deal makers to understand what incumbent U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana found out earlier in May, first hand.

The Tea Party movement did not fade away but moved to unseat Lugar. They worked tirelessly to support Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock and meanwhile, Mourdock received the backing and endorsement of Palin. Mourdock beat Lugar who had not lost a U.S. Senate race since 1976. Another Tea Party and Palin win on the books.

So much for the media and the GOP establishment doubters and the Dick Cheney’s who are trying mightily to discard Sarah Palin’s leadership and influence with the conservative heart and soul of America’s heartland. Now Texas is added to this roster as well.

 

Ted Cruz wins uphill Texas GOP U.S. Seat nomination battle with Sarah Palin supportThe insiders within the Washington Beltway just simply do not get it. Sarah Palin has an ability to connect with people who not only want change but demand changes, in Washington as well as in their state capitols. The Tea Party is now the rightful army of political change in this nation. Of course the Tea Party had been discounted in 2010, and everyone knows how those congressional elections turned out for Tea Party supporters, and their candidates who unseated Pelosi’s democrat house majority.

The Texas race should be a crucial reminder that the Tea Party and Sarah Palin have remade the political campaign mapping strategy used in the good old days before the Tea Party. Now, freedom of political choice tied to conservative political principles is much more important as an election determiner than the millions of dollars spent to bury those principles, ideals and a single, sincere political leader called Sarah Palin.

How interesting, right? It may take a Texas sized shellacking to wake up the GOP establishment in Washington and America to the vibrancy and vitality of a supposedly dead Tea Party movement. How interesting indeed. They do things bigger in Texas. Texas heard Palin’s message, now it is America’s turn at the GOP national Convention in Tampa. Let Palin speak Mitt Romney. The Texas victory is real and so is Sarah Palin’s leadership. Conservatives can see the Tampa Convention from their living rooms. Romney are you listening?
