I watched with great skepticism a recent History Channel documentary about the apocalypse. The premise was that according to some ancient cultures, the world as we know it will end in 2012. It was obvious to me (but not to my wife) that the documentary makers began with a predetermined conclusion and worked backwards and manipulated the seer’s prophetic texts to accommodate their position.
A heated discussion followed. My wife tends to give credence any non-fiction programming that she sees. Being a natural skeptic, and an empirical thinker, I tend to look for the hidden agenda before deciding whether to swallow the premise being presented.
Afterwards, I began to realize that the world as we know it will certainly end in 2012, but not due to a calamitous event like an earthquake, global warming, or act of war.
Our world as we know it will come to an end if Barack Obama gets reelected to a second term as President of the United States.
But unlike natural events like earthquakes or global warming, we have the power to put a stop to a pending disaster by going to the polls and voting for a true conservative for President.
I am weary of political pundits stating that he or she shouldn’t be considered because they “can’t win.” Hogwash.
A recent national poll recently stated that just about any Republican nominee can beat Obama except for Sarah Palin. But they said the same thing about Ronald Reagan before he won two terms by landslide victories.
I want Palin to run. I pray that she will throw her hat into the ring for a number of reasons.
First, she is much smarter than the elites think she is.
Second, she is the most popular speaker on the political circuit, drawing huge crowds wherever she is slated to give a speech. A massive base of existing supporters will give her a huge boost.
Third, as former Governor of Alaska, she has executive experience not shared by most GOP contenders, with the exception of Rick Perry (whom I also like) and Mitt Romney (whom I distrust).
Fourth, she would quickly address our energy problems by opening vast regions of our resources-rich country to exploration and drilling.
Fifth, a fiscal hawk, she will work hard to put an end to political payola, earmarks, and has already promised that she will repeal Obamacare.
Sixth, she is a Washington outsider. The very fact that the left has such vehement hatred for Sarah Palin makes me all tingly. I’d love to give her another shot at Katie Curic or some other media smartass who thinks they are brighter than she.
Seventh, the more people in the race the better. I’d like to see a large number of contenders debating the issues. Someone somewhere is the perfect person for the job. It could be an existing candidate or someone yet not named. It will make for a very interesting primary season.
Sure, I like Sarah Palin. Nevertheless, any of the declared GOP candidates will receive my support because the Obama disaster must be averted at all cost.
