I don't have a vote, however, much as I admire Sarah Palin for the no-nonsense approach she takes to battling Democrats, it would be sheer folly to vote for her in a Presidential primary at this time. Her voice is much stronger and much clearer where it is right now.
However, if she was to run in the next Senate primary in Alaska for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Senator Begich in 2014, I believe she'd be a formidable candidate with a good chance to be elected. As a former Governor, a former Vice-Presidential candidate, and as a sitting Senator with some accomplishments on the national stage, she could be an interesting Presidential candidate in 2020 should the Republicans lose in 2016.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
In my opinion, she conducts herself much the same way as Obama does. By that I mean she says and does what she wants, and she doesn't care what anybody thinks about it! She's as cagey and shrewd, in her own way, as he is. Maybe that's what the Left doesn't like...a woman with gonads who is a match for BHO! Even having the bully pulpit that BHO does, and which she doesn't, she still draws crowds that rival his...people willing to pay to hear what she has to say. Further, as physically fit as she appears to be, she would probably emerge the winner in any contest of physical skills, and that has to be an embarrassment. Plus, most men find her sexy! Interesting...
But we are talking about the tea parties themselves, not candidates they help to elect. It is crucial for their cohesion and potency that libertarians and moderates do not walk away. They did, in many places and to a significant extent - and mostly because the media convinced them that the truce on "social issues" had been broken by conservatives.
