McCAIN/PALIN - Right On!!!!




Sarah Palin




Boy McCain has done us right on this one!!!!!! Mickey & I were totally blown away with her speech yesterday in Ohio when McCain introduced her, and HER FAMILY!!! It was all we could do to not run around the room shouting Hallelujah!!



This is an answer to much prayer and this is going to be one interesting election and the remaining 67 days of this campaign are going to be very exciting.



Let the "talking heads" talk and put down and nay-say all they want ...... we are on our way to taking this country back to the values it was founded on. Christian, married for 20 years, proud of her WORKING husband, mother of 5 even one with Downs Syndrome, anti-abortion, pro-gun, ready to stand up for right, meeting the "good-old boys" head on, and on-on. I loved it that she told congress "You keep your bridge to no-where.....when we want a bridge we'll build it!"



I was already supporting McCain and definitely anti Obama but I will really do all I can to promote the ticket of



McCain/Palin


What are your thoughts?

Thoughts? Don't know much about American politics. Over here we vote for the party not the man.

As what happens in the US can eventually affect us all then I hope the best man for the job wins. A wise and God fearing man hopefully.

Mountain Mama said...

Yippeeeee!! Hallelujah and Happy-Happy Day! This is the very best news we've had from the political front in a long-long while.
I am thanking our Lord God with all my heart!

Feeling good :) I've been so discouraged with the whole process. I hope and pray that the Lord's will win out! We will continue to pray...

Charlotte said...

AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!

Hubby says it could go both ways. 19yo SS said it was the smartest move he could make-I think it was pretty radical of him. Should be very interesting!

Hi Susan,
Up until I heard McCain vs. Obama at Rick Warren's awhile back, I considered McCain the 'lesser of two evils'. I was impressed that night with MC's confidence and boldness and now I'm even more impressed with this new political move. This is a monumental spiritual battle we're facing. Let's all keep praying and not let our guard down.
God bless,
Brenda

I feel like it is a breath of fresh air for many renewing our faith in this election. God will prevail over us all in the end and we just have to be diligent and band together to vote for McCain.

Kitty said...

What a surprising choice!! I never saw that coming, but now, I could not be more excited about this election... I sure hope they WIN!!

Susan, do you remember you mentioned you tried to leave a comment at my daughter's blog? The comment button is at the upper right hand side of each new post. =)

Danielle said...

I really like her. I'm voting for Obama, but because of Palin, I will be happy if McCain wins, too.

Danielle said...

However, I was a little concerned that the right would not approve of her for being a working mother.

Dawn said...

I think it was a very gutsy, very wise move! I like the looks of her very much - and was not surprised when BO's camp came out with "but she has no foreign policy experience" before the ink was dry on the announcement. What hypocrites!

At a friend's pro-Republican blog earlier today my friend mentioned that Palin is "a prominent member of Feminists for Life". Here is what I said about that:

She does seem to be a feminist.. not sure what I think of that.. guess her husband is taking care of the baby.. I think I heard that he is a stay at home dad.. also heard that he is a commercial fisherman.. I am sure someone is taking care of her new-born.. I guess she didn’t see a conflict of interest in serving as governor and conceiving/having a child while in that office.. yes.. she does seem like a feminist.. is that a good thing? Yikes - I am sounding like a chauvinist :)

Agreeing with Ginger hoping and praying that the Lord's will will win out!

I'm not sure how I feel...I wasn't wowed, let's put it that way. I think she's a good person who has done some good things...and she's run a government unlike McCain, Biden or Obama. And I'm certainly a life-long Republican and shudder at the Obama/Biden platform.

I've been on a little vacation so am just now catching up. That honey looks good enough to eat!

Susan said...

I think I am happy. I find some of the conservative Christian bloggers comments interesting (not here but around the sphere). Some are wondering about her values if she's seeking this very busy office...interesting. I know when we were in Alaska, people we met really liked her a lot.

Blessings,

Susan

Whereas previously, a Down’s child could be born without the prior knowledge of the mother, going forward, a parent with a Down’s child will likely have made a conscious choice to have that child. As prenatal testing for trisomy 21 becomes ubiquitous, Down’s children (and eventually those with other genetic disorders) will increasingly become symbols of faith – a freak show meant to communicate the “family values” of their parents. The children will become public sacrifices made by their parents for their faith. They will be a symbol of religious reverence in the same way as the scarred backs of Catholics who flagellate themselves, or Buddhist monks who set themselves on fire, or Sunni Muslims who mutilate their girl’s genitals or Shiites who bloody their children’s heads with swords.

Genuine moral virtues – such as integrity, honesty, and productivity are not useful as evidence of religious virtue. To the extent that their practical benefit is visible to everyone, they do not represent the special domain of religion. To demonstrate religious virtue, it is necessary to sacrifice authentic moral values in favor of “religious” values. The particular object of the sacrifice is not important – there is nothing particularly “biblical” about being prolife (the Christian bible just as easily supports the opposite position.) If Christian fundamentalists decided that cutting of one’s hand sufficed as proof of moral virtue, they would be wrong to do so, but not much more so than the numerous other ways that people find to be self-destructive.

What is really vicious about fundamentalists in America is that the prey on the most vulnerable –poor pregnant young girls and women, those dying from painful terminal illnesses, the loved ones of brain-dead patients, — and children afflicted with terrible genetic illnesses. One can at least grasp the moral indifference with which a fundamentalist can force a single young mother to abandon her goals and dreams and condemn her and her child to poverty. But what can we say about a parent that chooses a life of suffering upon their child? If we are morally outraged by child rapists, how should we judge a parent who chooses a lifetime of suffering on their own child?

MightyMom said...

oh yeah!

I was ready to dance in the streets when I found out!!

I probably will when they WIN!!!!

MightyMom said...

goodness, Susan...you've got quite the gamut of comments here.

And a lot of misinformation.

yikes.

and that last one makes me want to vomit. how terribly misguided, must not know many special needs people is all I can think. "lifetime of suffering"??? goodnes.

Kansas Bob said...

Is anyone concerned about the news of the (5 month) pregnancy of Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter? While I am not judging her daughter or family (my own family has had to deal with similar issues) this news is causing me to be more concerned about her judgment and the judgment of John McCain who selected her knowing this.

I guess McCain believes that, despite these family issues, Palin will be able to devote her full focus and energy on the stressful VP job.

A call to prayer for sure.

Tina said...

Well, I was not very impressed I am afraid. It really bothers me that this woman has 5 children (one of them a baby!!) and would work outside the home, especially such a demanding, high profile position and she says she is a strong Christian. I think it really sends a mixed message. The Bible is very clear about a wife and mother's role in the home. I guess compared to most my views are very radical these days, but they are biblical.

Sorry, but you asked and I had to be honest. One reason I am just not very into politics. I am trusting it all in God's capable hands.

Susan Kelly Skitt said...

I will have to say I was very surprised!!! The more I hear about her, the more I like. I suppose God will raise up "Deborah's" at pivotal times in history :)

Momma Roar said...

Again, some more info than I knew. I'm excited about this ticket!! :)

Danielle said...

The Proverbs 31 Woman was a working woman. Good night and God bless.

Elizabeth said...

Sarah Palin gave a vicious, dishonest speech attacking Barack Obama. She admitted she doesn't know what the Vice President actually does. She may have committed ethical violations as Governor of Alaska. She is campaigning on "family values" but I'm wondering, is she going to take her young children with her on the overseas travel the Vice President usually does?
She has no experience or knowledge of the world outside of the US, which is 95 percent of the world. She wrote a dishonest op-ed in the New York Times last January. Basically, she is ignorant and she is a liar. She isn't anyone I would want to know, much less elect to higher office. She is unqualified for the job of Vice President. I'm puzzled why anyone would support her simply because she is a woman.

Kansas Bob said...

I thought of you today Susan when I read Lee Grady's Charisma article titled Sarah Palin and the Deborah Anointing.. great minds just think alike :)

weavermom said...

I think it is brilliant. Just brilliant.

May it be what is needed.
