I know many people are disappointed with Governor Palin’s decision, people are in disbelief, in shock and some even feel betrayed after all the work they have put in for Governor Palin.
First let me say that I do not regret for one moment the things I have done in the past two years. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. For me it wasn’t just about supporting a potential candidate, it was also about supporting a mother, wife, grandmother who was trashed and taken to the woodsheds for no other reason than existing. No one deserves that and no one should have to go through that. EVER!
As for her decision, while I am disappointed, I am not shocked. In a way I saw it coming and I had prepared myself for the possibility. Her signals were becoming increasingly obvious.
I think it came down to Palin wanting her life back. She had enough of the crap and she simply didn’t want to put her family through the whole process again. It wouldn’t be fair to them and frankly it wouldn’t be fair to her supporters. Even thick skin if you hammer it long enough cracks and I don’t think she wanted her or her families skin shattered .
It’s going to take some time for the dust to settle. But we’ll get through it and we’ll all be OK. Governor Palin would have made a great president, but you know, there have been many great people who have moved on and the world survived. The Graveyard is full of indispensable people. I don’t mean that in a negative way, my point is, that the world will continue and we’ll be just fine.
I’ve been hearing from people who are saying that by making this decision the left and the media have won. I beg to differ.
No, they haven’t won and we will continue to stand strong and prove it. They will only win if we lose, does anyone here plan on losing? I didn’t think so.
It’s all about how you look at things. If you want to convince yourself that they won and you lost you’ll only be miserable and it wont get you anywhere.
Think positively: think about how the Palin’s won’t have to deal with the crap anymore, think about how Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig will now have their mother around without the fear of them being trashed everyday, think of the things the family can now do without worrying that a camera lens is pointing in their direction.
The world doesn’t stop when a great solider dies, while it’s sad, we move on. Battle’s are not planned and won with just one general, battle’s are won with an entire army of dedicated troops. The general of our choice may have stepped aside, but the war continues and the army is still standing strong. We will continue to fight, we will not surrender and if we pull ourselves together we will win.
As for me, I made a lot of great friends in the past two years. I met great people, people who I now consider part of my extensive family. If anything it was all worth it for this reason alone.
The candidate of our choice is not running, but by the grace of G-d’s we will renew, revive and restore.
