Sara Palin has become the smarmy voice for ignorance and catch phrases absent any meaningful ideology. Her smugness matched with her ignorance is not a particularly appealing package when looking for a national leader. I'd like to think that true conservatives can find someone better to articulate their vision and lead.
Being plain spoken may just mean you have nothing substantive to say.
True conservatism is an important point of view in our national debate and direction. Personally, I’m a social liberal, fiscal conservative who believes in a strong national defense and a cautious foreign policy. The conservative mistrust of government and the liberal mistrust of the people can provide the delicate balance needed to navigate the treacherous waters of democracy. But it only works with enlightened leaders. Leaders who try to get us to be the best versions of ourselves not the worst. That is why I like Obama. Not because he has all the answers but because he is trying to get us to act like a nation instead of a couple of idiotic factions. It’s not working because the conservative cause has been hijacked by intellectual lightweights and gutless windbags. The Republican strategy of dropping to the ground like a toddler and becoming a burdensome sack of potatoes to the political process may succeed in winning the next election. It won’t help provide leadership and direction for our nation’s future.
Conservatives - don’t wave the flag or spout about family values. Ditch the smarmy catch phrases. Call out your windbags. Explain to the rest of us what you bring to the table and how you’ll address the collective problems we face. Do that and some of us might vote for you.
On a positive note, although you will lose data with this method if you get the device wet, you can still use it again in the future...
