Sarah Palin

I have for the most part avoided commenting on Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain's choice for the office of Vice-President. There are several reasons for this enforced silence, and it's now time to elaborate.

First, I thought that Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain's choice of Mrs. Palin was an astute political move. She represented so many things that he did/does not. By all accounts she is a born-again Christian, he on the other hand, spoke of Christians in the most derogatory terms in 1999/2000, he clearly has issues with Christians.
She was very pro-life, to the point of having a Down's syndrome baby, instead of choosing to abort. Mc-Mark-O'Cain is pro-life the way most politicians are, only when it's time to run for office. He is for embryonic stem cell research, which destroys human life, so while he may claim to be pro-life, he is inconsistent at best.

I've read that she was anti illegal immigration, while old Juan is an open borders zealot. She is a life-time member of the NRA. Mc-Mark-O'Cain gets a F- rating from the Gun Owners of America, and was considered persona non grata by the NRA until about 9 months ago. Mc-Mark-O'Cain has worked with George Soros funded gun-grabbers trying to close down gun shows, and other enfringements on the Second Amendment.

And Mrs. Palin is extremely attractive. Mc-Mark-O'Cain is Bob Dole with a better looking wife. An (no offense to those of you who are older than Juan) old geezer with a bad comb over. Even I would look good standing on a stage next to Sara Palin. Ok, that might be stretching it a little, but clearly Mrs. Palin is not hard to look at.

So as a political move adding Sara Palin to the ticket was a great idea. It was literally the only topic of conversation for almost two weeks. Her speech at the Repugnant Convention was more watched than his. People like James Dobson who had vowed never to vote for Mc-Mark-O'Cain changed their mind when Mrs. Palin became part of the ticket.

However, I do not, nor have I ever, voted on the basis of who is second on the ticket. If the Lord Jesus Christ Himself were second on the ticket to Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain, I would not vote for the ticket.

And therein lies my problems with Mrs. Palin. When she accepted the second spot on the ticket to a man who is a traitor to the Constitution of the United States. She became an accessory to his unlawfulness.

from Dictionary.com

a. Also called accessory before the fact. a person who, though not present during the commission of a felony, is guilty of having aided and abetted another, who committed the felony.

As I have written before, Vote for McCain, Never The man (along with Jorge the Younger Shrub) should be impeached.

Now Mrs. Palin has put herself in the position of having to defend the positions of a traitor to the Constitution. In fact she is now being forced by his people to answer questions about her beliefs with some codicil such as, "I personally believe" each time she has an opinion different than Juan.

I believe that Mrs. Palin is in the truest sense of the term, unequally yoked. II Corinthians 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"

If Mrs. Palin is really a follower of Jesus Christ. If she believes in absolute truth. If she is willing to defend her beliefs from a Biblical worldview. Then she has tied herself to a man who hold positions contrary to that worldview.

Now, I take no pleasure in pointing out Mrs. Palin's position, but let it serve as a warning to those tempted to compromise on their beliefs, (just a little bit) to gain access to power. She can and very likely will do harm to the cause of Jesus Christ, because of the position she now finds herself in. If she follows the party line, says what Juan wants her to say, she will be forced to
a. eat her own words from previous occasions,
b. advocate positions she personally finds to be unBiblical,
c. lie

any one of those scenarios will give the press a field day, especially if they catch her lying about her past positions to defend Mc-Mark-O'Cain's current ones.

Beside the fact that she must now play second fiddle to a man who is not trust worthy. She is also in a bind regarding the future. On Thursday night Mrs. Palin will debate Joe(the plagiarizer)Biden. Let me give you one example of the terrible position she finds herself in. What if Gwen Ifeld asks Mrs. Palin if she will support Juan's position on embryonic stem cell research? If she says yes, she will be immediately eviscerated by the right for failing to uphold the pro-life position. If she says no, she will be accused of being insubordinate to the man who gave her the position she holds. If she attempts to avoid the question she will be cast as indecisive and ignorant.

And maybe the most important question of the entire election cycle is going to destroy any future potential thoughts she has for elective office, regardless the out come of this falls election. Both Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain and the Lord Most High, BarelyBlack Obamba are in favor of the Wall Street bail-out. By some polls, 75 to 90 percent of the American public are opposed to the bail-out. Today, Mc-Mark-O'Cain excoriated Republicans who failed to vote for the bail-out. You can be guaranteed that Mrs. Palin will be asked if she favors the bail-out. From things she has said in the past, if Mrs. Palin is going to be consistent, she could not in clear conscience support this unConstitutional and clearly corporatist money grab. Will she follow Juan's commands to support the bail-out, thus disregarding the wishes of the vast majority of voters, or will she defy Juan, and portray herself as insubordinate?? Either way she becomes a has been as a political figure. The only way I see her saving her political future, is to resign the V.P. slot, telling the nation that she needs to spend her time with her family. Any other action will make her a pariah, in future years.

Why is this bail-out so toxic? Because just as campaign finance reform, and open borders, this thing is so clearly unConstitutional that even the mind numbed citizens recognize it. If Mrs. Palin supports it, she has just sold her soul to the devil. If she opposes it, Mc-Mark-O'Cain may very well have her thrown off the ticket. Not a pretty place to be, in my opinion.

I was asked a church the other day, what I thought of Mrs. Palin. I think she appears to be a lady I could like. A fellow follower of Jesus Christ. But, I believe she has made a horrible mistake by tying her political future to a traitorous, unprincipled man like Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain.

May God grant her peace and wisdom. She's going to need it, in unbelievable amounts.
