What Do Conservatives Believe? Part One: America Is Good

I've been talking for some time about digging into The Conservative's Handbook (Defining the Right Position on Issues from A to Z), by Phil Valentine, and frankly it's been difficult getting started! Since the election in early November, it seems we have spent more time on defense rather than on offense and it's gotten awfully tiring. I've frankly been puzzled at the onslaught of hate mail, even since the election (as are fellow bloggers). As the political world heats up with the decisions Obama and the Democratic Party are making on a daily basis, it's more important than ever, conservative Republicans, to KNOW why you are a conservative. I can say with certainty that some of the most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting were conservatives, and although I am sure there are many intelligent Democrats, my impression has generally been that instead of having a debate on ideas, they want to go on the attack. They typically refuse to debate on ideas. Frustrating? Sure! Especially when they attack, attack, attack...taking most of what you say completely out of context. (case and point: Rush Limbaugh and his latest comments on Obama, see entire video below) As crazy as it can make you if you let it, I have found that the more grounded I am in what I believe, the less it rattles me. We have been brought up in a world in which our little league ball teams have multiple winners so as not to hurt little Johnny's feelings. We have been raised in an America that has mostly embraced the "Dr. Spock" mentality, and it's quite evident in the political world. (case and point: Norm Coleman/Al Franken race) I've been puzzled by the hate mail, because I thought winning would be enough. It's not for a liberal. Make no mistake about it, their intent is to silence you, to destroy you, the conservative. Why? Because what you and I believe is right. We will begin to cover the many positions we take on the issues, and why we believe what we believe. It will take a very long time, so keep coming back...I think you'll be happy you did. The points we cover here will be a summary of what is a much more in depth discussion in The Conservative's Handbook by Phil Valentine. At a time when I believe more Americans than ever before are wanting to know more,  I encourage everyone who is a conservative, or wishes to fully understand our positions, to buy a copy here

The first of many facts about conservatism is this: we KNOW that America is good.
 "There's a discernible difference between a great country and a good country. There's no doubt the United States is a great nation. We are the preeminent superpower of the world."
There are many countries that are great in terms of military power or other factors, but that does not make them good.
"A good nation is not measured by its military strength nor its size. A good nation is, in short, a nation that is generally a positive force in the world. The United States is such a place."
Have we made mistakes? Sure, but what we have given the world as a nation far outweighs our mistakes. There are many on the left that disagree with this fundamental point. We could get into the specifics, but you know what they hear them daily on any given mainstream media network, from both the reporters and most liberal Democrat politicians. 

Part of America's goodness is her rise to capitalism. I hate to fill a post with quotes, but in an effort to get it right, I cannot say it better than Valentine himself:
"Freedom is the birth mother of capitalism...a truly capitalist society is a free society...capitalism attracts brilliant minds like magnet to steel. Names like Albert Einstein, Mikkhail Baryshnikov, and Joseph Pulitzer were drawn to the United States because there has never been a place on earth where so many with so little have accomplished so much.  Through our ingenuity, we gave the world airplanes, refrigerators, sewing machines...roller skates, toilet paper, rock 'n' roll...the telephone, blue jeans, jazz, light bulbs, air conditioning, and Coca Cola...bubble gum, microwave ovens, cellular phones, calculators, artificial hearts...the polio vaccine....Some people would go through life deaf if it were not for R. G. Rhodes and his hearing aid...Crayons, tea bags, popsicles, cotton candy, frozen food, chocolate chip cookies, photocopiers, defibrillators, carbon dating, integrated circuits..."

"Capitalist nations don't just happen by mistake; they happen by design. The United States was founded as a capitalist nation. That's why calls to end capitalism by those on the extreme left aren't just wild ramblings from disgruntled social misfits. These people are anti-American. Capitalism and America are inextricably intertwined; in fact, capitalism is the shortest path to individual freedom. One cannot be simultaneously free and dependent on the government. Our freedom to be all we can be is what makes the United States unique. It's also what makes us good."
Why do you think people from all over the world scramble to enter our borders at any cost? I live in South Florida and I'll never forget how thankful I was to be an American as, shortly after we moved here, we watched on the local news while a truck (that had been turned into a flotation device) full of Cubans floated to shore--some reaching land before being caught by our Coast Guard and some not so fortunate. I realized in a very real way how desperate people are to be free, and how deeply blessed we are as a nation.

America is good because she spreads democracy.
"No matter their religion, no matter their ethnic background, people everywhere yearn to be the shining light of freedom in the world, it is incumbent upon us to share what we've discovered for ourselves with the rest of the world. We must do this, not because we want to force our will on everyone else, but because, as fellow human beings, it's our obligation to try to free people from bondage, just as we freed our own. Because we have learned the hard lessons of freedom through our blood, sweat, and tears. Because we're a nation of hope, a nation of dreams. Because America is good."

GOP Loses Standoff, Wins Respect

Family Research Council
by Tony Perkins

President Obama came to the Republican mountain, but he didn't manage to move it. In his much-anticipated meeting with the House minority, the new leader tried to soften opposition to the $1.1. trillion stimulus package. Obama did concede on one of the Republicans' largest complaints--the hundreds of millions of dollars in contraception. He stripped that provision, along with a beautification project for the National Mall, but neither compromise did much to ease Republicans' minds. Like us, they see the "recovery package" not as stimulus but as a major pork-and-payoff bill that quietly authorizes the most controversial pieces of Obama's social agenda.

Although the legislation passed this evening 244-188, the GOP did set in motion a new era of opposition, voting unanimously against a bill that would take government into the final frontiers of universal health care and federalized education. In the face of the most popular incoming President since JFK, Republicans stood together in statement of solidarity. We applaud them for showing real backbone against unprecedented government expansion.

As the veil begins to drop from the shady elements of the stimulus, more people are beginning to understand what's at stake. Today's New York Times reads, "Stimulus Offers Road to Retooling Social Policy" with "little notice and no public hearings." We thumbed through the 1,588 page H.R. 1 and found plenty of waste. Obama offers: $600 million to buy "green" cars for government workers; $400 million to help NASA conduct climate change research (which ranks dead last on Americans' priorities, according to a new Pew poll); $4.1 billion for "neighborhood stabilization activities," for which ACORN (the Democrats' get-out-the-vote machinery) would be eligible; and even $227 million to oversee the pork spending in the stimulus (Page 11). Medicaid would expand for the poor, the uninsured, and the unemployed, opening the doors to universal health care. And the bill would more than double the Department of Education's current budget.

Swimming against the liberal tide isn't easy, and House Republicans need your encouragement to stay motivated for the work ahead. Please call the leader in your district today and thank them for refusing to back down on H.R. 1.

Obama Worship

You won't believe what I just read. See this link

We have talked at length on this blog about the god-like worship some Obama followers have, and this is just one case. It's chilling. I hope this gets out into the honest media outlets, and that this teacher is dealt with accordingly. She does not deserve to be in the classroom. Perhaps she can go to the Soviet Union where her practices will be welcomed. 

Hat tip, Rachel.



Call Your Representatives!

**Melt the phones people!! Tell your Representatives to vote no on stimulus. It will pass, but Republicans need to take a stand! See this link for the list, click on Captain America. Not much time left, so get busy!

Contraceptive Funding

I said if I found something positive that Obama does, I'd point it out here. According to Michelle Malkin, "Obama wants the Dems to eliminate Pelosi’s pet contraceptive funding from the Generational Theft Act of 2009". See this link for more details.

A Few Thoughts

Hi all. Happy Saturday! 

Wanted to share a few things. First, this site. It will also go into the link list on our sidebar, but I wanted to highlight it here first. It's a site created by a military wife and daughter that gives you the opportunity to email your messages to our troops. I highly recommend that those of you who support our guys and gals in uniform take some time to visit this site and get registered. Registration requires filling out and printing a form, enclosing a $2.00 processing fee, and mailing to the address given. As you well know, I am an avid supporter of our military and would ask that only those serious about actually supporting them take action. Others need not bother. 

On to another subject...I heard on the news this morning that our own President is now telling us who we should and should not listen to on the radio. He has suggested that if this stimulus does not pass, he may not have a good chance at re-election, and has said that Americans shouldn't listen to Rush Limbaugh. Now, last time I checked, this is a free country, and if I want to listen to Rush Limbaugh I still have the freedom to do so, along with anyone else I choose to tune in to. So, King Obama may want to mind his own business since he seems to be having a tough time with that so far, and refrain from telling free Americans who they may or may not listen to on the free airways of this great nation. I'm not sure it's a battle he wants to get into. 

Have a great weekend all! God bless.

Rush On Hannity Part 2

Don't forget to pause the video to the right of your screen before playing!

Oval Office Wet Nurse

Today, B. Hussein Obama, appearing dazed and confused, signed four executive orders designed to impede the further prosecution of war efforts against terrorist powers allied against the United States. Obama's ignominious orders command the suspension of intelligence collection techniques which have contributed to the enjoyment of unbroken peace in our nation since the 9/11 attacks. Also, Obama commanded the suspension of prosecutorial activities against terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay and has set in motion his design to close the facility within one year. What is to be done with these enemy combatants is not known. Obama, at this point, doesn't seem to have a clue. Nevertheless, Obama is committed to dismantling military apparatus that have played integral roles in our national security. Naturally, this give rise to the question, "whose side is B. Hussein Obama on?" 

Additionally, Obama's rank amateur status was on full display. During the signing ceremony, Obama can be seen receiving tutoring, regarding his own executive orders, from his attorney. It seems, that the messianic deliverer requires a wet nurse when it comes to the details of his own executive orders.  Obama appears to be incapable of regurgitating the content of his own policy without first being guided to the teat of leftist dogma. Not a very inspiring start from the man-child or for the Obamastocracy. 

Rush On Hannity, Part One

Don't forget to pause the video at the right of your screen before playing. Excellent interview. 

In addition, on January 20th, Dick Morris posted an
incredible article on The Hill. I wanted to share it here.
The Obama Presidency: Here Comes Socialism
by Dick Morris
Posted: 1/20/09 at 6:12 PM

2009-2010 will rank with 1913-14, 1933-36, 1964-65 and 1981-82 as years that will permanently change our government, politics and lives. Just as the stars were aligned for Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson and Reagan, they are aligned for Obama. Simply put, we enter his administration as free-enterprise, market-dominated, laissez-faire America. We will shortly become like Germany, France, the United Kingdom, or Sweden — a socialist democracy in which the government dominates the economy, determines private-sector priorities and offers a vastly expanded range of services to many more people at much higher taxes.

Obama will accomplish his agenda of “reform” under the rubric of “recovery.” Using the electoral mandate bestowed on a Democratic Congress by restless voters and the economic power given his administration by terrified Americans, he will change our country fundamentally in the name of lifting the depression. His stimulus packages won’t do much to shorten the downturn — although they will make it less painful — but they will do a great deal to change our nation.

In implementing his agenda, Barack Obama will emulate the example of Franklin D. Roosevelt. (Not the liberal mythology of the New Deal, but the actuality of what it accomplished.) When FDR took office, he was enormously successful in averting a total collapse of the banking system and the economy. But his New Deal measures only succeeded in lowering the unemployment rate from 23 percent in 1933, when he took office, to 13 percent in the summer of 1937. It never went lower. And his policies of over-regulation generated such business uncertainty that they triggered a second-term recession. Unemployment in 1938 rose to 17 percent and, in 1940, on the verge of the war-driven recovery, stood at 15 percent. (These data and the real story of Hoover’s and Roosevelt’s missteps, uncolored by ideology, are available in The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes, copyright 2007.)

But in the name of a largely unsuccessful effort to end the Depression, Roosevelt passed crucial and permanent reforms that have dominated our lives ever since, including Social Security, the creation of the Securities and Exchange Commission, unionization under the Wagner Act, the federal minimum wage and a host of other fundamental changes.

Obama’s record will be similar, although less wise and more destructive. He will begin by passing every program for which liberals have lusted for decades, from alternative-energy sources to school renovations, infrastructure repairs and technology enhancements. These are all good programs, but they normally would be stretched out for years. But freed of any constraint on the deficit — indeed, empowered by a mandate to raise it as high as possible — Obama will do them all rather quickly.

But it is not his spending that will transform our political system, it is his tax and welfare policies. In the name of short-term stimulus, he will give every American family (who makes less than $200,000) a welfare check of $1,000 euphemistically called a refundable tax credit. And he will so sharply cut taxes on the middle class and the poor that the number of Americans who pay no federal income tax will rise from the current one-third of all households to more than half. In the process, he will create a permanent electoral majority that does not pay taxes, but counts on ever-expanding welfare checks from the government. The dependency on the dole, formerly limited in pre-Clinton days to 14 million women and children on Aid to Families with Dependent Children, will now grow to a clear majority of the American population.

Will he raise taxes? Why should he? With a congressional mandate to run the deficit up as high as need be, there is no reason to raise taxes now and risk aggravating the depression. Instead, Obama will follow the opposite of the Reagan strategy. Reagan cut taxes and increased the deficit so that liberals could not increase spending. Obama will raise spending and increase the deficit so that conservatives cannot cut taxes. And, when the economy is restored, he will raise taxes with impunity, since the only people who will have to pay them would be rich Republicans.

In the name of stabilizing the banking system, Obama will nationalize it. Using Troubled Asset Relief Program funds to write generous checks to needy financial institutions, his administration will demand preferred stock in exchange. Preferred stock gets dividends before common stockholders do. With the massive debt these companies will owe to the government, they will only be able to afford dividends for preferred stockholders — the government, not private investors. So who will buy common stock? And the government will demand that its bills be paid before any profits that might materialize are reinvested in the financial institution, so how will the value of the stocks ever grow? Devoid of private investors, these institutions will fall ever more under government control.

Obama will begin the process by limiting executive compensation. Then he will urge restructuring and lowering of home mortgages in danger of default (as the feds have already done with Citibank).

Then will come guidance on the loans to make and government instructions on the types of enterprises to favor. God grant that some Blagojevich type is not in charge of the program, using his power to line his pockets. The United States will find itself with an economic system comparable to that of Japan, where the all-powerful bureaucracy at MITI (Ministry of International Trade and Industry) manages the economy, often making mistakes like giving mainframe computers priority over the development of laptops.

But it is the healthcare system that will experience the most dramatic and traumatic of changes. The current debate between erecting a Medicare-like governmental single payer or channeling coverage through private insurance misses the essential point. Without a lot more doctors, nurses, clinics, equipment and hospital beds, health resources will be strained to the breaking point. The people and equipment that now serve 250 million Americans and largely neglect all but the emergency needs of the other 50 million will now have to serve everyone. And, as government imposes ever more Draconian price controls and income limits on doctors, the supply of practitioners and equipment will decline as the demand escalates. Price increases will be out of the question, so the government will impose healthcare rationing, denying the older and sicker among us the care they need and even barring them from paying for it themselves. (Rationing based on income and price will be seen as immoral.)

And Obama will move to change permanently the partisan balance in America. He will move quickly to legalize all those who have been in America for five years, albeit illegally, and to smooth their paths to citizenship and voting. He will weaken border controls in an attempt to hike the Latino vote as high as he can in order to make red states like Texas into blue states like California. By the time he is finished, Latinos and African-Americans will cast a combined 30 percent of the vote. If they go by top-heavy margins for the Democrats, as they did in 2008, it will assure Democratic domination (until they move up the economic ladder and become good Republicans).

And he will enact the check-off card system for determining labor union representation, repealing the secret ballot in union elections. The result will be to raise the proportion of the labor force in unions up to the high teens from the current level of about 12 percent.

Finally, he will use the expansive powers of the Federal Communications Commission to impose “local” control and ownership of radio stations and to impose the “fairness doctrine” on talk radio. The effect will be to drive talk radio to the Internet, fundamentally change its economics, and retard its growth for years hence.

But none of these changes will cure the depression. It will end when the private sector works through the high debt levels that triggered the collapse in the first place. And, then, the large stimulus package deficits will likely lead to rapid inflation, probably necessitating a second recession to cure it.

So Obama’s name will be mud by 2012 and probably by 2010 as well. And the Republican Party will make big gains and regain much of its lost power.

But it will be too late to reverse the socialism of much of the economy, the demographic change in the electorate, the rationing of healthcare by the government, the surge of unionization and the crippling of talk radio.

You've Gotta See This

Governor Palin Weighs In On Her Hopes For The Obama Presidency

Many notable contributors weighed in today in a Wall Street Journal article, and our own Governor Palin was among them:
Tax Cuts and Fiscal Discipline
By Sarah Palin

Especially evident in these trying economic times is America's need for affordable, abundant and secure energy. This means American energy resources developed through American ingenuity and produced by American workers. I applaud President Obama's focus on alternative and renewable energy, and here in Alaska we've joined the effort: I have asked Alaskans to focus on obtaining 50% of our electric generation from renewables by 2025. In the meantime, we must not abandon oil and gas exploration and development. In fact, Americans should demand the cooperation of the major oil producers so that Alaska's vast supply of clean natural gas can be brought to market. Alaska stands ready to positively contribute to the nation's markets and energy needs.

Another step on the path to economic recovery is to let Americans keep more of their income. Mr. Obama and Congress could make this happen with permanent tax cuts and by adhering to a path of fiscal discipline. When congressional appropriation trains run too hastily, they accumulate excess baggage, spending more taxpayer money. Leaving more money in American pockets through tax cuts and fiscal discipline stimulates the business-investment and job-creation climate -- the climate for economic recovery.

Finally, we are extremely proud of our men and women in uniform. Mr. Obama and Congress must continue to guarantee a strong national defense by modernizing and equipping our armed forces; by treating active-duty military and veterans fairly; and by supporting the families of our service members. America will face difficult challenges in the years ahead. As Mr. Obama takes the helm, our prayers are with him as he seeks direction for our great nation.

Mrs. Palin is governor of Alaska.

AP STILL Talking About Sarah

In an article released today by AP reporter Rachel D'Oro, Governor Palin has once again come out swinging at the media for their treatment of her family. The article is, of course, not an article friendly to Palin, saying she has an ulterior motive for defending her children. (but if she hadn't, she'd be crucified for that too) D'Oro likens the treatment of the Palin children to that of Kitty Dukakis in 1988, the treatment of the Bush daughters early in Bush's first term, and most astonishingly, to the waiting line of photographers filming Obama's daughters going to their first day of school in Washington, D.C. Yeah, that compares. 

Quite frankly, I find this unbelievably insulting...although it comes as no surprise. As a mother, I applaud Sarah Palin for her defense of her children, and shame on liberals for continuing to spread the lies. Typical, predictable, and hypocritical as always. To see a breakdown of this article, go to this site as well. They have offered an excellent analysis. 

They Just Cannot Help Themselves...

Yep, that's right. He won the White House, he and his crowds successfully disrespected the parting Commander In Chief yesterday multiple times, and now the White House website wastes no time slamming President Bush. Read it here, under Katrina. Perhaps President Obama should follow his own advice given in his Inaugural speech. So, to those liberals who believe I am not allowed to have the opinions I share on this blog, where is that unity? Your party has seemingly had a "come to Jesus" moment, but where is it? I get's only unity as long as it's us bowing to your doesn't go both ways. 

President Bush orchestrated the most successful transition in American history, and this is the thanks he gets. Remember, eight years ago, President Bush was welcomed into the White House in quite a different manner.

My Thoughts On The Inauguration of Our 44th President

Today, our nation celebrated, as we do every four years, the Inauguration of a new Commander In Chief. It is a time honored tradition, and each incoming President is due his day of celebration, as are ALL Americans. 

We homeschool our daughter, and as part of our history lesson today I allowed her to watch the Inauguration of our 44th President, as I explained the historical nature of the event itself, and the historical significance of this particular Inauguration. Let me be clear: I do recognize that, for black Americans, this was an important day in their history as a people, as well as in the history of our great nation. It was disheartening, however, to have to explain to my ten year old why, first, President George W. Bush was openly mocked and belittled, not only in some remarks that were made at the Inauguration, but by commentators on several of the various major networks. Secondly, it was even more disheartening to have to explain to my ten year old why, when her father and I have always taught her that it matters not what the color of your skin is, only the content of your character as a person, the "preacher" at the end of the main event proceeded to make racist comments in a prayer about white people...insinuating that we are the ones who need to make it right. So, at a time when I truly believed this country had moved past racism, at a time when as many white people as black cast their votes to put this man of mixed race into the oval is the black man who continues the racism. Today was proof...a "color free" society is not what they wish to have. That became abundantly clear as I watched, and it saddens me deeply. 

I tuned in today truly looking for something on which I could comment positively. The left lectures us that we should suddenly find unity, when all they have done (except for a brief period of time after 9/11) is work to destroy the unity of our country for the last eight years. I felt that since today was a day for our new President to celebrate, I would try-in the spirit of celebration-to find something positive to say. I thought the Obama ladies looked quite lovely. The prayer by Rick Warren was absolutely fantastic, and although I've heard much better renditions of "My Country Tis Of Thee", I thought Aretha Franklin did a good job. I was impressed that Joe Biden took his oath like an old pro, and was surprised when Obama had a difficult time, although I can't imagine how nervous one would be in his position, so it was completely understandable. I thought Obama's speech had moments that sounded great, but the speech overall contradicted itself as, on one hand, he talked about how the people of America are what makes America great and how we will be the ones to reach within ourselves and find what we need to get through the hard times that lay ahead, and yet on the other hand, he spoke at length of what Government will do to solve our problems. As a whole, it was to me a very disappointing speech, although, as someone put it yesterday, he could have read a paragraph from the back of a cereal box and it wouldn't have mattered to the crowd. I would have walked away from the event with mixed feelings, truly liked parts of it and others, not so much....until Rev. Joseph Lowry got up to give the benediction. I was truly enjoying his prayer, and then he just had to throw the racism in there! What is it about these pastors who preach black liberation theology, and having to gain attention by seeing how much controversy they can stir up? If I were Barack Obama, I would begin to think that maybe they didn't have my best interest at heart, since seemingly every time one of them opens his mouth, out of it spews hatred of the white man. 

So, overall, after watching an inauguration that I truly decided to watch to find something good, I come away realizing that liberal democrats want no part of unity. I see how our current President is treated by those with little or no class, both from the democratic party and in the mainstream media, and I realize that our world has become a very different place, and today empowered those on the left who have so much hatred toward what is right and good and true. 

I can promise this: I will pray for this President, as I have every President for most of my life, every day of his term. Do I wish him success? Not in the policies he promises to implement, no. To do so would be to turn my back on my own principles. I hope that, once he begins his term as Commander In Chief, he will begin to view the world much as President Bush viewed it for the last eight years--through the eyes of one who wishes to protect this nation at all costs. I hope that once he begins to see through the eyes of those who've come before him, he will soon realize that many of the things he promises to do will do more harm than good to this nation, and that it will rock him to his core.  I will continue to look for things that I can support in this administration, and where I disagree, I will voice it. You see,  as I explained in tears this morning to my daughter, that's the beauty of freedom. We live in a nation who embraces people from every walk of life, every nation, every creed...and we have the freedom to vote, and every four years, we get a do-over if we don't like how things turned out this time around! Meanwhile, we need to do some soul searching. We need to educate ourselves on those principles in which we believe, study what works, and what doesn't work. We need to learn to see for ourselves, and in the end, no matter who our President is, we are better for it. 

In closing, I'd like to say that one of the most moving parts of the day for me was when President Bush and Laura departed aboard Marine One. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to walk in their shoes for these last eight years, seven of them in particular after 9/11. I can only imagine that President Bush must have felt the weight of the world on his shoulders from that moment on, and while I have not always agreed with every domestic policy he brought to the table, I have ALWAYS felt that he did everything within his power to make sure my family and your family were able to lay our heads down to sleep in safety each night. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the Bush daughters to hear so many horrible things said about their parents, day in and day out, for so many years. Yet, through it all, President Bush has served with honor and integrity, with dignity, with his faith as his guide, and Laura was one of the most gracious, honorable, and classy First Ladies this nation has ever known. I admire that, and I know without a doubt that one day, when the classified materials are de-classified, when the truth is really known, President Bush will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents this nation has ever known.

Happy New Year!

I hope this finds all of you, our readers, well rested after a wonderful Christmas and New Year's holiday season. Happy New Year! We all know it will be an interesting one, that's for sure. 

I've been a.w.o.l. for a while, other than posting a few newsworthy items and commenting here and there, and wanted to finally post and share my thoughts on a few things once again. 

Our last post congratulated Bristol Palin and her boyfriend Levi on the birth of their precious little one last week. I never cease to be amazed at the responses we receive, although by now, we have come to expect them. Let me be clear on how I feel, in case you're a first time visitor to this blog! Bristol and Levi's mistake was NOT the baby Bristol just gave birth to. Let me say that again: the baby is NOT the mistake. The act of premarital sex was the mistake. She knew better, she'd been taught better, and is sharing that with anyone who cares to listen...this is the difference between most conservatives I know, and the liberals who comment here, and the ones I see on the major news outlets. You see, in my opinion, the baby is never the mistake, and Bristol Palin should be commended for her willingness to do the very difficult, and very right thing, and allow her baby the same chance at life that she has given. I admire Bristol. I admire her for her willingness to do the right thing, no matter how much it inconvenienced her. So many young women today take the easy (or what they think will be the easy) way out. Never mind that actions have consequences. They choose to dispose of the baby, who was the result of a mistake, not THE mistake. Bristol chose to grow up, as difficult as it was, very quickly. It would have been far easier to abort the baby without the knowledge of her family, knowing full well she would soon become the focus of the American left and all it's fury. 

Todd and Sarah Palin, just like most parents, have done the best they know how to raise their children to do what's right. Because Bristol chose to make different, unwise choices, is not their fault. Perhaps those who have so much to say about the Palin's parenting abilities should tend to their own children, if they have any, before crucifying Todd and Sarah. What goes around comes around, and I have a feeling a whole lot of people are going to eat their words one of these days. 

Some girls choose to take the very brave route of giving their baby up for adoption. While I cannot imagine the pain this causes within a mother's heart, there isn't a group of women I admire more than those who have been willing to give so much of themselves so that their baby could have a better life than they could offer. I've witnessed first hand the pain a mother goes through when going through this process. I can't think of a more selfless act, and these women, too, are to be commended.

My point is that in many circles, even in Christian circles unfortunately, others who have no idea what it is to walk in their shoes are often the first ones to point the finger. No offer of a helping hand, no compassion, no regard for the emotional ramifications of their words. Instead, just cruel, heartless finger pointing, whispering behind the back feeding the rumor mills with often made up stories. I've often seen those who do this end up having their own daughters face the same fate...In Bristol and Levi's case, it wasn't enough that they made this mistake, and as a result were having a baby. No, instead, the eyes of a cruel and heartless sect of our nation were upon them. Imagine being that age, being with child, and being the spectacle of many major news outlets, magazines and comedians. I know, I know...many will leave comments and say it is ALL Todd and Sarah's fault, as though she forced Bristol into the act, or **gasp** to have the baby. Bristol and Levi made it crystal clear, it was never their intention to "dispose of the mistake" as many have put it. That would have been the coward's way out. Bristol is better than that, and again-she is to be commended. That her family has been so supportive has been an extra blessing. Many are not so fortunate. 

In other news, we have Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg being considered as the replacement for Senator Hillary Clinton's New York senate seat. The hypocrisy within the liberal media, and in the Democratic Party is astonishing, albeit predictable. With little else on her list of accomplishments except family name, Schlossberg appears relatively UNenergetic, and certainly unprepared for the media attention being thrown her way. What a pathetic joke, and they ranted for months about Sarah Palin being unqualified?!

Finally, let me just defend my friends over at Team Sarah. It seems when liberals have absolutely nothing else to grasp onto, they have to scream racism, and our friends over at Redstate have uncovered an attempt by liberals to try and take down Team Sarah in this way. Get used to it, folks. They'll stop at nothing. NOTHING. This is only the beginning. 

So, it's shaping up to be an interesting start to the new year. Israel knows it will get little support from us, so they have taken things into their own hands. BHO promises more gas taxes, in addition to getting rid of those Bush tax cuts (as predicted--therefore, raising our taxes). But hey, we'll get a stimulus check to fund our vacations this year, so we should all be happy! The latest accusation is that if you criticize BHO, you are unAmerican, so get ready for that one too. Never mind what they've done for the last 8 years to President Bush. (I even had one commenter claim that the liberal media had been VERY fair to Bush!) Wow...the next four years will be full of surprises, no doubt...or will it? We've already got the Clinton team back in office, so maybe not. We'll see. Hmmm, that's CHANGE we can believe in!
