Sarah wows 'em in India and Israel this week

M. Joseph Sheppard points out Sarah Palin's Speech Keeps Delegates Spellbound At India Today Conclave 2011. The video is at Conservatives 4 Palin, full text of speech here from SP information and a media round up here. An excerpt from her speech:

"I started in politics on the local level two decades ago; inspired by a desire to serve the ordinary folks in my hometown! As a city councilman, then a city mayor, I led the fastest growing area in our state. I experienced firsthand the power & success of the free market, & the proper role of government in fostering economic growth. I cut property taxes, I invited business in & focused on building infrastructure (roads, water & sewer systems); not a lot of glamour in that – but I have a solid belief in what government’s proper role is & it shouldn’t be glamorous.

It’s not government business to spend the working man’s tax dollars recklessly – & certainly not government’s business to centrally “plan” an economy & control an entrepreneurial spirit! That doesn’t work. Government should lay infrastructure, level the playing field, then get out of the way. Allow the private sector to grow/thrive/create jobs & generate wealth!

Then as governor of my state, my goal was to clean up corruption & develop our rich natural resources: Our abundant oil, gas, minerals & our robust fisheries! An important project that was a ‘center-point’ was jumpstarting a natural gas pipeline project that had been stalled for decades. We brought all stakeholders together for mutual benefit – our state, the energy industry, our neighboring country, consumers & together with ordinary citizens (who are the resource owners) & major energy producers who ‘bid on the right to develop our resources’, AK was finally able to move forward on a project that can help lead America towards energy independence.

Through my work in AK (as an oil & gas regulator, then as governor), I’ve seen firsthand how energy development, job creation & national security are inextricably linked. Access to affordable, reliable energy is the key to economic growth, which is the key to job growth. Securing that stable domestic supply of fuel will lead to a more peaceful & prosperous America – an America that’s not subject to the whims of foreign dictators who could cut off energy supplies & seek to control.

Of course, energy issues are critical to the whole world’s stability & economic opportunities! By 2030, the world’s energy consumption will increase by 50% & almost half of that will come from here in India & from China. We all face similar challenges in this arena & this makes America’s quest for energy security all the more crucial as we seek to stabilize our economy, secure our homeland & cooperate with our allies who would also seek peace on earth.

Energy is key! My vision for a free & prosperous America has much to do with energy."

ENERGY WILL BE A WINNING PLATFORM for a 2012 run for Sarah
"Energize America's Future" is my suggestion for her campaign...
After India, she went to Israel where she and Todd met and had dinner with PM Netanyahu and his wife.
Patrick's world points out A Contrast of Two Leaders: "President Obama is in Brazil helping them out with their oil drilling program while we suffer at the pump here in America and vast reserves remain untapped. Sarah Palin went to India to demonstrate her vision of how important an ally they could be of America in a free market economy where two vibrant democracies could become strong trading partners. President Obama took weeks to come on board with the Libya no fly zone. Palin called for it immediately. A trip to the supermarket followed by putting gas in the car is enough to tell you that things aren't going right. A little research on Sarah Palin is enough to tell you that things can be put right again.

The contrast between the two leaders is beyond clear."


  1. sorry anonymous, I'm not posting bogus negative propoganda from "mudflats". "mudflats" has dodgy sources on their "blogroll" including HuffingtonPost, DailyKos and Andrew Sullivan? These sources are pure leftist drivel. You need better sources than this bunch anonymous... why don't you put your energy to good use and vet Barry Soetoro who is an illegal usurper squatting in the American W.House... I can provide MANY links to support that claim. Go do your own research though because he was NOT vetted properly but rather installed illegally.

    I support Sarah 100% and I'm sure she is not perfect but she is a helluva lot more qualified to lead America than Obumbles. Don't believe me, go read her book Going Rogue with an open mind and put aside the leftist propaganda and then we can chat more seriously...

  2. It drives me nuts that so many here in the US, even Republicans, rip Palin apart. I think she would be a wonderful president, just what we need.

    Right Truth

  3. Agree with you 100% Debbie... thanks for stopping by!
