Rand would support Sarah Palin for Senate

“From what I’ve heard of Sarah Palin’s positions, there is a great deal of overlap…I’m sure if she were in the U.S. Senate, you’d find her right there with Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and I…”

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Compared to the current bunch of RINOS in the senate

She wouldn't be that bad. Not great, don't agree with her on everything but not bad.

And I like that she's a loose cannon, sometimes just blurts things out. Better that than secretive and scheming.

Take the time to look at her record and you will cringe.

First of all after what we just witnessed in Tampa, does anybody really believe an election is going to fix anything?

If you do, it is very possible you believe in pixies and leprechauns as well. Feel free to walk into a curtained booth at your local indoctrination center and push the colorful button of your choice on your friendly Diebold screen, click your heels three times and say, "I hope it counts,, I hope it counts, I hope it counts..."

As for Sarah don't waste your time;
You all need to know Palin has a Solyndra and worse. She pushed for the commitment of $500 million of Alaska Money for the boondoggle called AGIA. Look it up. Ask Ralph Samuels (, Mike Hawker, or Mike Chenault. History has proved them all right and Palin wrong, very wrong, while Alaskans are out a cool 500M. We are not talking about just loan guarantees here.... This was an out right business deal promoted between the State of AK and Trans-Canada Corp. This is a death nail in any election for her. She could not be elected in Alaska again that is for sure. But watch out Arizona she is establishing residency. Want to bet she runs for McCain's current seat to join Dan Quayle's punk porn publishing kid as a neocon duo? You heard it here first.

She may act folksy and conservative on reality tv but, she is not qualified to be much more than a cheerleader. Sorry folks, I like Sarah personally too (raised money for her gov race, you would have too if you knew her predecessor)...

Don't get fooled that she is an fiscal conservative and a deep thinker of any kind. The AGIA fiasco is proof positive she has no real base economic principles.

She has been going to the neocon school since 2008 to learn about the world she was not prepared to enter when thrust on the scene back then. Let's see how she emerges from that corrupt school of thought. I am heartened a bit to see in her face and in her answers to some questions that she is slightly torn between conviction of a true conservative like a Ron Paul and the easy road to a establishment position and a nice paycheck but, I don't put much credence in it.

Mark my words, she will drift with the political wind and right now it is blowing toward us. She should take the check and stick with the other MSM boobs. We should not ever consider electing her again for much more than dog catcher.

In the end one's politics must be based in principle or they can produce no real leadership. Palin still blows in the wind. Ignorance or ambition, I care not which one causes it. AGIA is a big issue that precludes her ever being considered a principled free market conservative.

OH but!

This is Rand's masterstroke. He's in stealth mode. NM I give up. He's Rand.

what does this have to do

what does this have to do with my post from a year ago???

Is Sarah Palin Opposed to Obama’s War on Syria?

Is Sarah Palin Opposed to Obama’s War on Syria?
Lew Rockwell on June 15, 2013

Maybe, though who can doubt she would approve a Republican war. But her remark, “Let Allah sort it out,” is at the very least ignorant. “Allah” is Arabic for God. Christian Arabs pray to Allah, too. Unfortunately, she may also mean to echo the genocidal, “Kill them all, and let God sort them out.”

There is little to like about

There is little to like about Palin, but having her creating havoc as a Senator or Congressperson would be too good to pass up. I know she's primarily in the 'Sarah Palin business', but she's better than the alternative...just as long as her designs on running for president are adequately thwarted.

another lesser of two evils argument

...Daily Bell: What do you think of Sarah Palin? On the one hand, it seems to us, she espouses firm free-market beliefs. On the other, she speaks a great deal about patriotism and her support of the military, generally Homeland Security and the various wars on terrors. Isn't this somehow a contradiction?

Thomas E. Woods, Jr.: People like her, I think, because they see in her a normal, plain-speaking American who doesn't gratuitously ridicule what they believe, and because she is packaged as a maverick of some sort. If only she were. At the slightest prompting she immediately adopted the neoconservative line on foreign policy (and in fact she canceled a meeting with representatives of her pro-life constituency during the GOP convention so she could attend a meeting with AIPAC officials). During the campaign she supported the financial bailouts. Oh, but she had to, someone could reply. All right, then what kind of maverick is she?

Well, who else you got?

like Palin has said,

"I'm waiting to see what the lineup might be"

Not perfect but

compared to Santorum, MCCain,Romney, Boener, MCconnel, Linsey Graham, Rubio, Christie, Bloomberg she would be on the side of Paul, Cruz & Lee more often than with the first group.

She is a bridge candidate to Rand Paul the way Rand Paul is a bridge to Ron Paul-not perfect but better than someone on the other side of the river.

Please subscribe to

"The other side of the river"

That's a Bostonian saying, isn't it?

neocon tea

There are good things about Sarah Palin, though her downfall was predictable. And now, she wants even more war in the Middle East, this time against Iran. Oh, and less government, of course.

Palin belongs to the religious right. Most of these people see the US military as God’s instrument on earth. Those who resist God can, of course, be secretly tortured, imprisoned, and executed, not to say bombed and occupied, especially if the president is a Republican. She may even want to bring on the Second Coming, as if that were possible, by promoting the end of the world through a last world war — Armageddon. By the way, Gary North is the great expert on the religious right. If you want to learn more, read him.

-Lew Rockwell 2010

UPDATE from Ken Reffner:

Some may doubt your claim that the Religious Right people “see the US military as God’s instrument on earth”. As someone who attends a church that is composed of and run by Religious Right people, I can say that you are exactly correct. In fact, many of them believe the US military is preventing complete chaos and wars from breaking out. As a result, they are delaying the end of the world and the return of Jesus Christ. You can’t make this stuff up! There is a complete reverence of soldiers at church. I would encourage every Second Coming believing Protestant to read Gary’s articles. I learned things about my church’s beliefs that no one ever talks about for obvious reasons.


I would happily take someone from the religious right that supports the constitution and traditional Americanism than some Nutjob atheist who hates the United States and what it stands for.

I feel sorry for the God haters out there.

I haven't been to church since Easter Sunday, yet some idiots out there think if you beleive in God you are religious right.

Palin has traditional values, she an '80s girl, Reagan, Pro American all that stuff and she is rural not from the city.
However, she is nowhere close to Religion and God that the Founding Fathers based this country on, to contrary BS that people try to claim otherwise. I do believe Ron and Rand Paul attend church every week, they both have invoked God and Jesus Christ before, same as Palin, Rand went to Israel, Palin is no war monger.

Palin - "Obama could win reelection if he played the war card and declare war on Iran"

During the 25 minute interview with Chris Wallace, Palin "I got this from Pat Buchanan "

While many mistook Palin's Statement for going to war with Iran, to the contrary, the piece that Pat Buchanan wrote was anti-war with Iran and that Obama would beat the war drums with Iran right before the election to gain himself support.

No doubt Palin is a supporter of Israel, she has become more non-interventionist as time goes by.

Most recently in June 2013, Palin said the US should follow a more non-interventionist foreign policy worldwide, and said the President Obama should move the United States away from any involvement in Syria.

Palin is getting better.

Palin is getting better. Hopefully it is not just opportunism. But I would take an Athiest/Deist like Thomas Jefferson over Fake Christian psychos like Bachmann/GWB, personally.

"Nutjob atheist"?

That's a bit of an oxymoron.

Not really.

Ever been on Youtube? Ever heard of Mao Zedong or Josef Stalin? Nutjobs come from all groups, didn't you get the memo?

“My attitude toward progress has passed from antagonism to boredom. I have long ceased to argue with people who prefer Thursday to Wednesday because it is Thursday.” - G.K. Chesterton


Speaking at Alaska’s Fort Wainwright on Thursday, where she hailed the combat deployment of her son’s Army unit to Iraq as a “righteous cause,” Palin explicitly and repeatedly renewed the discredited claim that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was initiated as a necessary and credible response to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Sarah Palin Endorses ‘Bomb Iran’

that's from 2008 and debunked long ago

Pray that we're on God's side in war; not that He is on ours

Another one of those stories that surfaced early on was that I had been invited to visit Wasilla Assembly of God church to speak to graduates of a missionary program. I asked the congregation to "pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our national leaders are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God." The Huffington Post ludicrously described this as: "Palin painted the current war in Iraq as a messianic affair in which the United States could act out the will of the Lord." In reality, I was invoking Abraham Lincoln's admonition that we should pray that we are on God's side--not that He is on ours.

In addition Palin said the Iraq war was about oil, funny how McCain scolded her for saying it, but she never wavered or backtracked on it.

Before Palin was picked as VP

“I always looked at Senator McCain just as a Joe Blow public member, looking from the outside in,” she said. “He’s been buttin’ heads with Republicans for years, and that’s a healthy place to be.” Then again, on McCain’s signature issue—the prosecution of the war in Iraq—she did not sound so gung-ho. Her son is a soldier, and she said, “I’m a mom, and my son is going to get deployed in September, and we better have a real clear plan for this war. And it better not have to do with oil and dependence on foreign energy.”

After Palin was picked as VP from an interview with Business Week, Palin again said the Iraq War was for oil and we shouldn't be there for that reason.

Alex Jones' own show paints a disturbing portrait of Alex Jones.

rachel maddow and glen beck

certainly agree with you.

I agree in part.

As far as the intention of your post, I concur with you that Beck and Maddow are scum. Problem is, Alex Jones has been proven to not only be way over-the-top on the melodrama and often a liability to the causes he promotes, but he is also notorious for getting swept up in media crazes that later prove to be false or overly exaggerated. He's not usually a reliable source by himself and everything he said needs to be cross-referenced with others and never taken at face value.

i certainly agree with that. btw if you haven't seen the show mike (beevis & butthead, king of the hill, idiocracy) judge was on i recommend looking it up. he does a funny bit imitating AJ who seems to be a good sport about it. "hitler took the guns! castro took the guns! etc"

if rand can support romney, i

if rand can support romney, i wont be surprised if he supports any other neocon republicans

Run her against John McCain

If she really believes the stuff she's saying, she would have no problem primarying a liberal hack like McCain.

McCain keeps winning because

McCain keeps winning because of the people who keep voting for him. You can't just swap out Palin for McCain, amusing though that would be.

McCain only Wins

Because they never run a real Republican against him. Let's make this happen.
