There is a movement “aborning” to support Sarah Palin for President in 2012.
At first glance it would seem too early to consider supporting anyone this far out from the election in 2012. But, since the Clintons introduced America to the “Never-Ending Campaign for President”, some feel conservatives had better go ahead, right now, and get the ball rolling.
There is already a website for the Sarah Palin for President campaign at:

It is said that small increments of time (such as weeks or months) in politics, is a lifetime. That may be, and, certainly, much can, and does, happen in the world of politics… even in hours.
With the current election “seemingly” already decided in favor of Obama, and, taking into consideration the dastardly way conservatives have been treated by the GOP in this election cycle, more and more conservatives are looking for a future candidate they can get behind early and, in doing so, serve notice on the GOP that their support (conservative support) is going to THAT candidate… and if… IF… the GOP wishes to have any support from Conservative voters… then the GOP will have to follow the conservative lead, or… just get out of the way.
Now, as a conservative, myself, I am not deceiving myself by believing the GOP will actually wake-up and see the error(s) of their way(s). See, I don’t think the GOP, in their minds, made an error! I think the GOP set out, from the very beginning in this election, to discard the conservative wing of their party and push McCain through with the belief, the conviction, if you will, that they could win this election with the support of only liberal and moderate republicans, plus the independent voters. That move was doomed to failure right from the start. But, the oh, so intelligent elite, in the Republican Party, wanted their party back, and now… they have it… for what it is worth.
For 46 years I have voted a conservative ballot. My belief in conservative values has not changed one iota in all that time. I have seen the GOP win when they placed those conservative values first and foremost in their candidate and their campaigns.
But it is clear that since 1994 the elite in the GOP have been gnashing their teeth at the mention of “conservatives” in what they truly believe is THEIR party. No matter that their liberal and moderate values had kept the republicans on the backbenches in both houses of the Congress for decades. Apparently, they liked it there… for they sure as heck seem to be bound and determined to return to those same backbenches ASAP.
Rejection is a difficult thing for the human animal to deal with. Some are just overwhelmed by it. Others become depressed and wallow in that depression, while others accept it for what it is, choose not to dwell upon it, and move on continuing to strive for bigger and better things. I sincerely hope the bulk of conservatives will accept the GOP rejection of our values and move on to form our own political party, separate from the Republicans, into which we can pour our energies and our collective talents in an effort to build a better America.

Why I Like Miss Sarah.
It’s no secret that I favor Ms. Sarah Palin for the next Vice-President of the US. Heck, I have her photo on my website. One look at that photo and you have to marvel at how our coldest state gave us our hottest governor!
I ran across a column… no… let me re-state that… I went looking for the latest column by one of my favorite conservative writers the other day, Jefferson Weaver. Jeff is a Tar Heel, a conservative Tar Heel, and one I admire a great deal. His writings are always a joy to read because I know where he is coming from, not just philosophically, but physically, too. He’s a hunter and fisherman, enjoys the great outdoors, and knows how to enjoy and appreciate the natural wonders of this great state we share as our home, and… Jeff is a God-fearing southern man. Plus, Jeff’s politics, and mine, seem to run parallel to each other most of the time.
His latest column is all about why Jeff likes Sarah Palin. As I mentally wolfed it down the other day, I realized we were on exactly the same beam. We both like Sarah… and for the same reasons. Not that that should come as a surprise to anyone, we are both conservatives… southern conservatives.
We have pointed you to Jeff’s column on a couple of previous occasions and I hope to continue to do so in the future. But just for today, I’d like you to click on over to the address I’m about to give you and read what Jeff has written about why HE likes Sarah Palin. It eloquently sums up the southern conservative’s view of Miss Sarah. Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to understand why her entrance onto the national political stage came as a breath of fresh air to conservatives who, like me, were suffocating in the vacuum created by the l candidates the two major political parties had given us to choose from this time around. We conservatives were sick at heart. And that is putting it mildly.
So, now, I’d like you to go read Jeff’s column. You’ll find it at:
Do you begin to see the depth of feeling for this woman among southern conservatives… both men AND women? She reminds us so much of the 1800’s Southern Belle in a gorgeous hoop skirt carrying a tiny parasol to protect her complexion from the sun, quoting scripture in a slow southern drawl with sugar dripping from every syllable… while having a Navy Colt Revolver strapped to her thigh beneath that lovely gown. Yep! We like our women smart, tough, resilient, resourceful, determined, God-fearing, and, mind you, graciously feminine with drop dead good looks! Miss Sarah fits the mold. (Now, please, if you think women, fitting the description I just gave you, are difficult, if not impossible, to find, then, dear reader, you haven’t lived down South!)
All kidding aside, Miss Sarah will do well here in the American South. I fully expect her, and her running mate, to do very well in November here in North Carolina. Truthfully, I want her to win, because I want to vote for her for President in 2012!
