Are You Better Off Today? Palin Addresses the NRA

Original post made by Jim for Freedom, another community, on Apr 29, 2014

As 2016 presidential hopefuls begin canvessing the early primary states, looking for a quick advantage, patriotic Americans need to begin asking themselves whether they're better off today than they were 6 years ago. It was, after all, 6 long tedious years ago that America faced a choice between those who offered us freedom versus them who took control of our government and who want to control our guns, our prayers, and our grazing rights.

What would have happened 6 years ago had the votes lined up differently? It's not too difficult to imagine. Had adequate voting rights and restrictions been in place, had the Black Panthers been prevented from intimidating patriotic Americans at the polls, had ACORN been prevented from stuffing ballot boxes with millions of phony ballots, we'd have had a McCain-Palin administration where good rural folks could find employment and where lazy folks in the city would have found it more difficult to draw upon taxpayer largesse as a substitute for hard work.

As we approach 2016, voters will make their choice with the benefit of hindsight. Instead of the amateur tyrant and the rest of them that followed an avalanche of phony ballots into office, we'd now be well along the road to recovery and wealth for all free patriot Americans. Instead of them, we wouldn't be suffering government incursions into our schools to gag our children from praying to their rightful Christian god. Instead of them, we wouldn't be forced to wear gun-owner identification bracelets like Attorney General Eric Holder is demanding all patriots wear. Instead of them, we could graze our cows and pigs anywhere we wanted, much like the Free Rangers did until Big Government started sending its storm trooper thugs to rustle away our livestock.

If you have 12 minutes sometime in your day, I'm asking that you view the link I have enclosed. It is a speech by Sarah Palin to this year's National Rifle Association 2014 Convention in Indianapolis. If you are like me, as you watch and listen to this angel of freedom speak, you'll no doubt ask yourself "Oh, why did America allow itself to be hoodwinked by black militants and ACORN cheaters the way it did? Today, were it not for the hoodwinkery, we'd have McCain being steered along the rightful path of American exceptionalism by his trusted intellectual partner, Sarah Palin.

When you watch this video in which this Godsend of a woman addresses today's privileged status of politicians, bankers, and yes even jewelry shop owners - yes, them too - ask yourself how things would be different with HER in charge. When she offers to give terrorists a baptism of waterboarding, and to instill the fear of GOD - our American God - upon those who disagree with us, ask yourself how things would be different with HER in charge. When she beseeches women to shoot their would-be rapist first, and if not to then be prepared to fork over 185.00 for a rape kit, ask yourself how things would be different with HER in charge.

As we look forward to 2016, we might also ask: Who is best prepared to lead our country? Permit me to humbly submit that she is standing right before us on the screen, behind her teleprompter, talking to America's pure patriots. As she looks over a uniformly colored sea of pure patriot faces, she tells us we shouldn't be REFORMING America, but instead we should be RESTORING America. The choice is there, America. I'm confident you'll see that we're staring at the answer.

In my humble opinion. God Bless America. Jim

By the way, I forgot to mention that Sarah Palin, since leaving her office of Governorship in Alaska in order to serve a higher patriotic good, has steadfastly endorsed Tea Party candidates at all levels of office.

Hey folks, If you've never attended a Klan rally, or wondered what they must be like, get a load of the link provided by Jim for Freedom. There is so much whiteness in the crowd, I guess they all figured they didn't need sheets.

Seriously, if I were Eric Holder, I'd arrest this aspiring Grand Dragoness for crossing state lines with the intent of starting a (violent) riot. (And I'm not talking about her slim jeans, high heels, or the other of her prostitute accoutrements -- wink-wink. Nor do I refer to her attempt to mix the prostitute look with a clergy person's collar.)

Hey Ashamed...study your history...

The Klan originated by the Democrat party.
When governments disarm their citizens...bad things happen. Just ask the Jews in Germany. Ask the Iranian citizens. Ask Venezuelan citizens. Ask the North Korean citizens.

Also ask Swiss citizens...and they'll tell you that because their citizens WERE armed, that they prevented Hitler from invading them during WW2.

Then read John Lott's book "More Guns, Less Crime." Study the crime statistics. In areas with the greatest gun control laws, you'll find the highest crime statistics. Oakland. Chicago. Newark. WashDC. And others.

You are simply wrong. But it is not too late. Do your homework.

@ "2": "Also ask Swiss citizens...and they'll tell you that because their citizens WERE armed, that they prevented Hitler from invading them during WW2."

I think that it had more to do with Switzerland's geography (very mountainous - not well suited to Blitzkreig and tank warfare), and the fact that Switzerland had no strategic value (for example, not much in the way of natural resources). If the rest of Europe had been conquered, Hitler would have doubled back and taken Switzerland (armed citizenry or not) but he had bigger fish to fry at the time with France, England, and Russia.

"Then read John Lott's book "More Guns, Less Crime.""

Is that the John Lott who created a fake internet persona in order to praise his own work? No, thanks. I would question the veracity of anything that he wrote in the book.

.........
"In response to the dispute surrounding the missing survey, Lott created and used "Mary Rosh" as a sock puppet to defend his own works on Usenet and elsewhere. After investigative work by blogger Julian Sanchez, Lott admitted to use of the Mary Rosh persona.[62] Sanchez also pointed out that Lott, posing as Rosh, not only praised his own academic writing, but also called himself "the best professor I ever had"."

Damon,
You are as wrong about Switzerland as you are about dismissing the research of John Lott.

Re: Switzerland's successful attempt to thwart a Nazi invasion. In a review of the book entitled "Target Switzerland" Dave Kopel states... "Infuriated by the lack of ethnic solidarity, and by the strongly anti-Nazi stance of Switzerland's free press, Hitler predicted that Switzerland would be "liquidated" and that he would be known as "the butcher of the Swiss.

Target Switzerland includes the maps of the evolving Germans invasion plans for "Case Switzerland." Yet although the Germans several times massed troops on the Swiss border for an invasion, the invasion never went forward. With so many reasons to invade Switzerland, why did the Nazis desist?

The Nazis could have eventually have conquered Switzerland, but at a fearful price. The Wehrmacht expected 200,000 German casualties; it would have taken a very long time to remove the Swiss military from the Alpine "Reduit" to which they planned to make a stand. And by the time the Swiss were defeated, every bridge and train track and everything else of value to the conquerors would have been destroyed.

The reason that Switzerland was too difficult to invade—in contrast to all the other nations which Hitler conquered in a matter of weeks—was the Swiss militia system. Unlike all the other nations of Europe, which relied on a standing army, Switzerland was (and still is) defended by a universal militia. Every man was trained in war, had his rifle at home, was encouraged to practice frequently, and could be mobilized almost instantly. The Swiss militiaman was under orders to fight to the last bullet, and after that, with his bayonet, and after that, with his bare hands. Rather than having to defeat an army, Hitler would have had to defeat a whole people. "

entire review... Web Link

Oh...and btw: on John Lott's book. It is the most comprehensive and thorough research on the subject. Open your mind, challenge yourself to learn something new. I worked in Chicago's gang district. I know of the horrendous crime statistics in this GUN FREE zone.

I don't understand why the book reviewer wrote the above sentence when in his previous paragraph he clearly identified the military difficulty of conquering Switzerland as being their Alpine "Reduit" ("Redoubt"?), not the militia system. Anyway, I doubt that the Swiss militia would have fared well on the plains of Poland or that they would have deterred Hitler from attacking that country.

dear 2, or should I say dear klansman?

Nothing in your "argument" separates you (or anything Palin says in her speech) from the Klan. Nothing. Guns, guns, guns to protect us from ... "them." The poorly veiled but cowardly references to blacks, Jews, black presidents, linking them all with terrorists....

Your reference to Switzerland could only be made by a 10 year-old. Why not use Iraq as your touch point? Everyone in Iraq has their very own Kalishnakov. Where has it gotten them? Is Iraq a crime-free nation? Do Iraqis feel safe and secure because everyone owns a gun?

As Damon so ably put it, Hitler didn't bother with Switzerland because he didn't need to. He had nothing to fear from a bunch of musket-bearing yodelers housed in A-frames on mountain tops.

Yes, the Klan once upon a time had support from (the southern wing of) the Democratic Party. In case you forgot, the Dems changed immeasurably in the 60s under Kennedy and Johnson. Today, 92+% of African Americans vote Democratic. Do you not know this? How stupid can you and your brethren Klansmen be?

And what happened to those Southern Democrats? They switched to the Republican Party which now distinguishes itself as the party of hate. You saw the haters in the auditorium feasting like Southern Klan Dogs upon the hate-spewing words that were the first and last servings of Palin's pro-Klan speech. Face it, Palin's speech is yet another marker of how the Ku Klux Klan is sick, ever-sick, but still not dead.

Hey ashamed I'm ashamed for you. You know nothing about the Klan and you don't know nothing about Sara Palin either. There's massive research out there that talks about the good things the Klan has done for their patriotic communities. Did you miss how the feds suffered a massive defeat when they tried to take Clive Bundy a free patriot's cattle from him? That's what happens when patriots have guns. The feds arent' able to go in and arrest people on trumped up charges against free grazing and not wearing gun owner identity braclets.

Damon. Don't you mean to say Demon? I bet your a teacher unionista that forces his students to swallow your devil's lies. You come off as a real know it all but you don't know a thing.
