This is NOT a political blog, but I have become a huge fan of Sarah Palin and wanted to express my new found BEACON OF HOPE in this upcoming election. From the moment I first heard her speak, I was hooked! I have to say I was pretty hopeless about this whole election when Romney wasn't chosen as McCain's VP pick, until I listened to Governor Palin. I don't care what your political party preference is, how can you not be impressed with this woman? At the VP debate, she once again proved how capable she is of being second in command.
I think she appeals to me first and foremost because she is a mom!!! And one that I can relate to, unlike Hillary, but we won't go there. Sarah Palin didn't start out with the ambition of becoming the nation's VP. She was quietly serving her country as Governor of Alaska when the honor was bestowed on her for her ideals, brains, and get it done power. She has been gifted with a natural talent of what a politician should be. She is straight forward, down to earth, beautiful, feminine, poised, and very sweet when she speaks. Yet she is also very intelligent, well informed, confident, and tough if needs be on the issues we are facing in our country today. She is a strong advocate of the average American.
I love what she is representing to the young women of today. How many female politicians do we have out there that are strong AND feminine? Smart AND kind? Well informed AND still drive a carpool? The message she is sending the young women of our country has been long in waiting!
I also love the fact that she is a fellow "Hockey Mom". I love that she doesn't apologize for having a big family and admits that her family isn't perfect. I am so grateful that we now have a role model who chose life when faced with the difficult knowledge that her son would be born with special needs. That didn't lessen the worth of that baby any. They welcomed him into their home with open arms and a copious amount of love. I think it also speaks volumes that her oldest son chose to serve in the armed forces.
Sarah Palin is the breath of fresh air this country has been seeking. No matter what your political persuasion is, you have to admit she is at the very least refreshing. If elected, she will work hard and serve our country well even if she can't create the dramatic changes in Washington we all hope for. Our government has been set up by design so not any one person can impose a great deal of change... in order to keep the power with the people. But, Sarah Palin will most definitely leave our country better than she found it. She already has!
