“The pundits are wrong. Conventional wisdom is wrong. Sarah Palin's decision to step down as Alaska governor was a brilliant move................. The pundits call her a quitter, but let's be honest - the pundits never liked her to begin with. Better to take one hit for stepping down and move on than to stay in Alaska and die a death by a thousand cuts. Willie's World-Willie Brown”
Those are the words of one of the most savvy politicians in California's history, Willie Brown. Many pundits and politicians have taken Sarah Palin to task for resigning her post as Governor of Alaska. This criticism is not exclusive to the left, she has her share of detractors on the right. It is amasing how none of these individuals who are attacking her, can stop her. She is quite unique in today's political world. It's even being reported now that she plans to eagerly campaign for Republicans, Independents and even Democrats who share her values on limited government, strong defense and energy independence.
All these attacks upon Sarah, from both sides of the isle will only ensure one thing, and that is the inevitable end of the two party system. It is my opinion that while Sarah will remain a Republican for now, she has within her power to mobilize independents, and conservative Democrats behind her. Not since the Gipper has a politician been able to tap that veign of American pride and anger. Like Reagan, she has the potential to effectively neutralize both the Republican and Democrat establishments. This ability could enable her to build up a bi-partisan team of congressmen that could very well usher in a new age in politics.
Largely due to the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, the country was ripe for a change. That change eventually came in the creation of a new party, the Republican party. While the reasons may differ today then back then, there is again a clamor from the people to change the way politicians get things done. That demand for change is what put the most liberal politician since Henry A Wallace into the White House. Along with a congress that agrees with Obama, America changed into a Socialist nation. However, now the people are beginning to realize what kind of change they got and they don't much like it. Look around you, people are again talking of change, but this time the talk is about real change. A change that could usher in the dawn of a new age and the creation of a new party. Could Sarah Palin play the role of Lincoln as the first President of America's newest Party of power?
