In the Event of a Brokered Convention, All Bets Are Off

                 "Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run;
            Hurry and scurry puts you further behind." - Proverbs 21:5 MSG

If Sarah Palin’s most electrifying speech at the CPAC did not convince that only she can articulate Americans’ concerns and vision for our nation, then Obama has just been handed his second term. The CPAC event proved that only she  can rouse the unexcited base to their feet. Only she can energize and move voters to go out to the polls. Only she can unite us to defeat Barack Obama.

The Republican Party has four good men running for the GOP nomination. Without a doubt, any of them could do a much better job than our current president  is doing right now. However, it is highly uncertain how these men would withstand the avalanche of relentless and coordinated attacks of Team Obama, the Democratic machine, the Journolists  and their LSM cohorts come general election time. Make no mistake that the Obama campaign will make sure that this election would absolutely be about smear after vicious smear because the president cannot run on his dismal and disastrous record. Only one Republican has survived the Alinsky attacks  from the Left for years and came out still standing - stronger, wiser and prouder. We all know that person to be Sarah Palin. Only she has the smarts to throw the media into a convulsive tizzy and still have her message ring out loudly and win the argument.  

This year's Republican primary season has been a very fluid race.The rise-and-fall in the polls of the candidates plus the lackluster enthusiasm of the base make credible all the talks about the realistic possibility of a brokered convention. If a brokered convention is what we end up having, "all bets are off". We need to nominate someone who has the fortitude and fire in the belly to defeat Obama - Sarah Palin. But she would need allies in Tampa. Voters pick their candidates but delegates pick the nominee. PLEASE BE A DELEGATE FOR SARAH PALIN. That is the only way she can clinch the nomination.   

If you have not considered it yet , please explore the possibility of becoming a delegate. Your state’s delegate filing deadline may or may not have passed yet. Even if your state's primary/caucus has wrapped up, the qualifying period to be delegates may still be open. Different states, different rules but the best place to start is to go local.  Even if Governor Palin is not a candidate (yet), let your county GOP official know that you will vote for the best candidate at that time, but in the event of a brokered convention, you will be voting for Sarah Palin.  Please visit GOP Convention 2012 . It has everything one needs to know per state (contact information, filing deadlines and selection process, etc.) to become a delegate . Here is another good resource from RNC for Life with compressed view of delegation selection process and filing dates.

Today, some of us may be in support of one of the declared candidates but we all share ONE goal: get Barack Obama out of the White House. If this primary race goes down to a brokered convention, we need to come together and get behind the strongest Republican to take on the incumbent president. We must nominate someone who has the clear and proven track record of true reforms, of fighting corruption and cronyism from their very roots and symptoms, of actual accomplishments that have had real-life benefits to the people and of unwavering commitment to our Constitution, our freedoms, time-tested values and principles.  Given a brokered convention, we must coalesce around a patriot whose message is ingrained in her conservative character - Sarah Palin.  

Let us stand together to restore America!

Pledge of Support for Governor Sarah Palin

               "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
                 I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff,
                                they comfort me. " - Psalm23:4 NIV

(The following text was a cover letter I wrote for "Pledge of Support for Governor Sarah Palin", a project undertaken by Sarah Palin's Earthquake Movement.) 

February 11, 2012
Dear Governor Palin,
In your interview with Tom Sullivan on Fox Business Network, you stated that “I don’t have the organization I think that could propel me to a position of being a viable candidate.”

Sad as it was to hear those words, we, your supporters beg to point out that there was one word missing in your statement: YET.

Your grassroots supporters “will not wave a white flag and go along to get along ... and will not recapitulate.” You remain the only rogue maverick who will actually shake things up and do what needs to be done in this country. Your tenure in Alaska as a governor, and indeed your whole political life, is a manifesto of how things are done and how things get done - for the good of the people, pure and simple.

Our country right now stands on the precipice of history. Another four years of the Obama presidency will entrench the ugly transformation of this nation that Americans did not want or ask for, nor our Founding Fathers envisioned this country to be.

There is only one counter-weapon to President Obama’s billion-dollar war chest: We The People. There is only one counter-weapon to the left’s Alinksy rules of engagement: We The People. There is only one counter-weapon to the GOP establishment’s business-as-usual and backroom workings to anoint a nominee for us: We The People. The only leader out there who has the full trust and confidence of We The People is YOU.

We are asking for your leadership to bring sudden and relentless reforms in Washington. We need you to take back the White House for all of us. We need you to be our President in 2012. We promise you, we will be there for you and with you. You will not fight this fight alone.

On behalf of the Sarah Palin’s Earthquake Movement, please find attached “Pledge of Support for Governor Palin”, which the group gathered via Facebook and e-mails in just 10 days. We will not abandon you and all that you represent because we will never abandon America.

Back in the 2008 elections, the Democrats opened the Pandora’s Box and the only good thing that came out of it was HOPE. But that hope was not Barack Obama. It was YOU when you were picked as a VP running mate. We The People are keeping that hope alive.

Your army of Davids awaits, ready, willing and able … full steam ahead in 2012!

Will you please lead our battle cry - GAME ON?

Happy Birthday, Governor Sarah Palin!

                               " The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord
                                  make his face shine on you and be gracious
                                  to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and
                                  give you peace." - Numbers 6:24 - 26 (NIV)

(The following text was originally posted on Sarah Palin Earthquake Movement).

Dear Governor Palin,

On this special day, please enjoy these heartfelt messages from your supporters, grateful for your continued fight to get this country back on the right track, and thankful to God for giving us a leader who holds up high the torch of freedom, hope, common sense values and principles that make America the most exceptional nation on earth.

Happy Birthday and may today be a most wonderful day for you and your family!
