Palin said no to running.
I understand why, believe me. She is a mother. What mother in her right mind would want to put their children, not to mention themselves, through the suicidal process of candidacy in modern America, where conservatives are ground up and spit out like a lawn mower? AND where THEIR UNDERAGE CHILDREN ARE DRAGGED THROUGH THE MUD!!
This nation is in deep doo-doo.
The GOP establishment, the elitist Republican leadership, is to blame for this to a great degree, because they joined in the Palin Derangement Syndrome.
So, Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Ed Rollins, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, and Roger Ailes, among others, can kiss my royal behind (to put it mildly).
Don't even THINK about calling me a Republican anymore. Conservatives--real ones--are not welcome. I am a CONSERVATIVE, a Jeffersonian.
Looks like I will be voting 3rd Party, Independent, or a write-in, provided the candidate meets my criteria on the 10 key issues of importance to conservatives that I have written about extensively at the Examiner.
