Smears, More of the Same (UPDATED)

Today I was getting my nails done and I sat watching CNN for about an hour. Not once during that time did I hear that particular commentator, nor any of his colleagues on the show, site the Republican side of things unless it was as a side note, done in a mocking way as an afterthought. The commentator misspoke several times, having to correct himself later. I guess the reason this is so shocking to me is that I am accustomed to hearing BOTH sides when I watch Fox News Channel.

I never cease to be amazed at how the liberal media will repeat the garbage that is out there, even after it has been proven to be false. They glaze over anything that may seem unflattering to their candidate, and yes-I said- THEIR candidate. 

The smear, which I heard again this afternoon on CNN, is that
Palin has never been out of the USA. You will see in a previous post the full smear, but I wanted to update you on this. The McCain campaign has added to their comments about the trip to Iraq, as reported in the Boston Herald and on the Fight The Palin Smears website: "The Kuwait visit included Camp Buehring, Camp Virginia and Ali Al Salem Air Base. She visited the main Iraq Kuwait border crossing, Khabari Alawazem Crossing aka K-Crossing. (The article says "she never ventured [further] into Iraq" but K-Crossing is in Iraq and Kuwait and all Kuwaiti supplies funnel through this point)".

The smear that Sarah
Palin banned books and fired the librarian is false. The librarian, Mary Ellen Baker (also known as Mary Ellen Emmons) accused Palin of banning library books in a blog that was posted in 1996 on Librarian.Net. (Fight The Palin Smears) Other sources that reported this story and a story that Palin fired this librarian were the New York Times and Time Magazine, along with numerous networks and Obama's own website.
The truth is that these are lies. You can click

It's really quite pathetic that we cannot have a more civil discussion of the valid issues in this country. There are vicious things being said about Sarah Palin and her family, as well as any of us who support her. It is time to stand up and be heard. If you are a mom and have usually stayed out of politics like me (until the time came to vote)....it's time to wake up and hear what is going on. It's time to speak up! This effects our future, and that of our families. Like never before, it is going to take those of us who ordinarily have remained behind the scenes, speaking up and getting active to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin. For those of you who agree with my thoughts but think I am being too harsh...I'm sorry if you don't like hearing the facts. I do this for those who wish to know what's going on. I post as much as I am able, and yet for some, I am still not doing enough. This responsibility--that of getting the word out about Sarah on the issues, on her life, and in defense of her--lies on all of our shoulders! Together, we can make a difference. 

Last, but certainly not least, I am SICK AND TIRED of hearing my God compared to Barack
Obama, and our girl Sarah compared to the man who crucified Jesus. Jesus was a carpenter, He was a teacher, and most importantly, He was the SON OF GOD. To compare the likes of Obama to Jesus Christ is incredibly disrespectful of our God. Pontius Pilate allowed the Pharisees to make the choice to crucify Jesus. How this compares to Sarah Palin is beyond me, and the implications of both statements are unbelievable. Clearly this is a talking point of the Obama campaign since every pundit out there is spewing the same garbage, and they clearly have no knowledge of what the scriptures say about either. For a group of people who seek to remove God from every facet of our lives, it is amazing that they compare their candidate to anything Biblical in nature. 

Ladies, just be careful to research things for yourselves and find out the truth. It doesn't matter what party you are in, the TRUTH is what matters. If you do the research, you will discover for yourself that the things being talked about in the mainstream media regarding Sarah, and a lot of things regarding John McCain, are mostly untrue. It would be easy to be convinced, I tell you, if all you watched was CNN! I suggest you change the channel! Watch several channels! Read materials, seek the truth....don't just take my word for it and please, for God's sake, don't take the word of the liberal media.

"Those who stand for nothing fall for anything." (Alexander Hamilton)  Take a stand. Don't be a part of the "silent majority" any longer...you deserve to be heard, and so do I. Being silent is not an option. "Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." (John Quincy Adams)

Sarah Palin is 8 more years of the same.

Why would anyone like her?

How could a person not like Sarah Palin? (Unless, of course, you are FOR everything she is against, in which case I think she would rather NOT have your support)

So, let's talk about the issues: The bottom line is that Barak Obama is in favor of MORE government and John McCain and Sarah Palin is in favor of LESS government. Both parties want to help the poor and middle class, but they have a difference in opinion on how to achieve that result. Obama feels that we should become more of a socialistic society by redistributing funds from the wealthy to give to the poor. Now is that fair? What if these wealthy people work 100 hours a week to keep a small business going, but the poor sit at home watching cable TV rather than getting a job or two? The McCain model wants people to be accountable for themselves. Yes, there are those who may have fallen on hard times and our country has some wonderfully generous people and charities to help the poor. Government doesn't have to take care of them; their fellow citizens will. In this country if you want a job, you can get one. Unemployment has indeed risen over the last couple of months; however, it is still at a level lower than the last 40 years. 94% of Americans are employed!!! What other country has those types of numbers? Yes, we have a healthcare problem. McCain is in favor of Tort reform that will eliminate frivilous lawsuits that drive up healthcare costs in this country. McCain is in favor of making healthcare more competitive to drive costs down. Obama wants to put the government in charge of healthcare. We all know what happens when the government handles things. I certainly don't want the government handling my healthcare system and degrading the quality of care that we enjoy in this country. It may be more expensive, but it is still the best in the world.
