So Just Who is Sarah Palin?

I'll set out to answer just a few of those questions and express why I am so excited to see her on the Republican ticket for President of the United States and why I think she's a brilliant candidate for Vice President.

-- Sarah Palin, mother of five, began her political career as a two-term city council member in Wasilla, Alaska.

-- In 2006, Sarah defeated a corrupt incumbent Republican governor in the primary and despite being outspent by her Democrat opponent, she won the general election by an 8 point margin, becoming Alaska's first female and youngest person ever elected Governor, immediately setting out to cut wasteful government projects and spending that burden the people.

-- Gov. Palin is a lifetime NRA member and strong proponent for 2nd Amendment rights.

-- She's an avid hunter and fisherman.

-- Palin supports increased domestic oil and natural gas production, including drilling in Alaska's National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

-- When Alaska began to accumulate a windfall surplus from high oil/gasoline prices, she passed this surplus along to the people of Alaska to the tune of $1,200 per taxpayer, while many politicians of lesser caliber would simply have found a way to squander said surplus.

-- Palin's oldest son is an infantry Soldier in the U.S. Army, preparing to deploy to Iraq (compare to Joe Biden's son who is a special interest lobbyist in Washington, D.C.)

-- Sarah opposes gay marriage and firmly believes that marriage can only truly exist between a man and a woman, in both God's eyes and the eyes of the law.

-- She has the Executive experience that both Barack Obama and Joe Biden lack.

-- She is not hypnotized by the utter myth of "global warming."

-- Young, energetic and intelligent, Palin rightly believe that America's leaders are elected to serve The People, not the other way around.

-- And finally, as Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin has enjoyed a 90% approval rating, which speaks volumes to me.

I could go on, but this entry is getting more lengthy than I'd like. I invite you to do some research and discover for yourself why Sarah Palin is the right choice for Vice President and why the McCain/Palin team is right for this country. I close in saying that while I have warmed up to John McCain in recent months, his choice in Gov. Palin for running mate has really got me fired up. Her intelligence, tenacity, appeal and strong, conservative record make her a great asset to McCain. And I finally, truly believe that with her by his side, John McCain will defeat "The Messiah" and become the next President of the United States.
