Dear Governor Palin:
Can I call you Sarah? I’ve been a supporter of yours ever since I saw you introduced as John McCain’s VP nominee. You rocked the house that day, and really, every opportunity you’ve gotten after that. I’d say you were the best thing about the ’08 campaign, but that almost seems like a backhanded compliment, since John McCain sucked so bad as a presidential candidate. Maybe I’ll say it this way: choosing you as his VP was about the only thing I think John McCain did right as a candidate.
Over the past few years I’ve found myself characteristically agreeing with you on issue after issue, and as my family and I got to know more and more about you, your family, and your views. We came to feel like you were a really gifted spokesperson for conservatism, family values, and what we used to call the American ethic.
Since we so badly wanted a candidate for 2012 who represented the values we hold in esteem, my family and I were deeply disappointed by your decision not to enter the race this year. I’m not sure what happened, really, but I kind of feel like someone in the GOP told you to back off, or maybe that they wouldn’t back you if you ran; I don’t know, but whatever happened, it really bummed us out.
I’m glad you’re trying to put a spotlight on Obama’s voter fraud this year. I fear we may have lost our most fundamental right, the right to choose our leadership, by the wholesale fraud that the Obama campaign appears to have executed at an unprecedented level this year. There were more than 100 Ohio precincts with Obama winning 99+ percent of the vote, including more than 44 districts in Cleveland. 59 precincts in Philadelphia where Mitt Romney got zero votes. Reports of GOP poll watchers being tossed out of polls in districts in Pennsylvania. The allegations of fraud, targeted in swing states the GOP needed, just go on and on. So there’s no doubt it’s a huge issue, and a threat to our country.
What I don’t understand is why you’re giving the GOP a pass for their complicity in this. How on earth did the Romney team not anticipate this kind of behavior? It happened in 2008, and, to a lesser degree, it’s been going on for a long time. The Democrats fought voter ID laws in swing states tooth and nail, to at least delay their implementation until after this election. Organizations like ACORN and its newly renamed spinoffs have been deliberately engaging in fraud for years now, and everyone knows it. Where was the GOP, and how did the Romney team not have a plan for this?
The problem as I see it now is that the fraud has been committed, the election is over, and I don’t see how this can be fixed. The election fraud of Barack Obama and his campaign in 2012 was the most telegraphed political move in history, and the GOP was caught by surprise. As Americans, we have given up on the Democratic party. We depend on the GOP to be the adults, because there is no other option. Maybe there should be. And maybe it should be started by some people like you, standing up for people like us, who have been failed by a Republican party that either lacks the political sophistication, or the political will, to stand up to the soft tyranny of liberalism. Think about it. You can always reach me here.
