What Choosing Sarah Palin Really Means 30 August, 2008

Posted by David Anderson in Election 2008, Revolutionary Reform, Sarah Palin.

The reform wing of the Republican Party has triumphed.  Reformer John McCain turned his back on the Washington Republican establishment and turned toward the working people of America.  I will not go over the accomplishments of Governor Palin, just read my other posts and comments.  I am focusing on what this choice means to the party. 

The combination of McCain Palin is a profound one.  It brings together the national security wing with the social wing.  It takes the party away from the big spending heresy which infected it. It is a fiscal conservatism not only of tax cuts, but of spending restraint. It puts two bold and courageous people at the head of the party.  It signifies that the party is under new management. 

When she was being vetted, Palin made an interesting statement which is being taken out of context now.  She said that she would not leave her job as Governor unless she was assured the VP role would make a difference in its day to day operation.  In other words, she understands historically that the VP can be a very important role in an administration or a one not much more influential than Miss America.  She was not interested in being McCain’s token.  She wanted to contribute.  That tells you volumes about the Governor.

She represents a turn in the party from poking fun at the vision thing to some one who believes government should represent the hockey moms, fishermen, teachers, and small business people in its policies again.  The Republican Party chose to give more than lip service to majority of the people.  It chose to give them the most important seat at the table.  It chose to groom a capable executive for leader of the free world.  In 4 years the GOP will not only have a new image, but a new reality.

Senator John McCain has chosen to break with the Washington consultant establishment, which is ruining the party in a profound way.  He deserves a great deal of credit.

Gov. Palin is an excellent pick; I am a father of a daughter and this is a woman my daughter can look up to for all time. Besides that, my party has lost its way and we couldn’t come up with a better ticket to right the ship.
