I was NOT surprised to hear Sarah Palin tell us that she was not going to run for re-election. I was shocked to hear that she was leaving office before serving out her entire term that she had been elected to. I knew that many would immediately label her, once again, but this time, "Quitter".
I have no idea why she has made this decision, but I do know that many of the allegations coming out since she was chosen as VP candidate are fallacious, and this continues to this day.
From Sarah's twitter account:
To see full text of the letter from my attorney on baseless allegations of past 24hrs check http://tinyurl.com/mmhv4u
Critics are spinning, so hang in there as they feed false info on the right decision made as I enter last yr in office to not run again....
so I'll make attempt to keep up w/attaching corrected info. I head 2 West AK villages today, look forward to their busy comm fish activity!
Trying to keep up w/getting truth to u, like proof there's no "FBI scandal", here's link http://tinyurl.com/nzlae8 Thanks, AK!
Attached is my "thank you" sent yesterday to express gratitude, & smack down lies at same time http://tinyurl.com/q28wl5
It disgusts me to read and hear the things said about her. Things like David Letterman's 'joke'. Absolutely disgusting, what he said about HER, but then you add what he said about her daughter, and it hits far below the belt. Things like the altered picture of Sarah holding her baby! Absolutely one of the lowest things I have ever seen done to ANYONE!
NONE of those five children, nor her husband, deserve to be treated like this, but either does she.
Why is she so ... hated? Disliked is not the word for what has been happening since she was announced as the chosen VP candidate. Hatred is the only thing that would EVER cause anyone to say that her son is not her son, but her grandson. Hatred is the only thing that can fault a woman who chooses to give life to her child REGARDLESS of what others may think/say/do about it, but to then also accuse her of not having given birth to that same child is... disgusting, and again, involved not only her infant SON, but also her oldest daughter.
THEN she gets heat for having announced that Bristol was pregnant... like no one would have ever published the news had the family opted NOT to make the news public???
And can you IMAGINE the press had she or Bristol chosen abortion (killing their babies to hide from potential ramifications of either pregnancy--Down's Syndrome or unwed pregnancy)?? I can.
She is, and has been, D*MNed if she does, D*MNed if she doesn't. Those who hate her, despise her, dislike her seldom argue her POLITICS. They attack her personhood, and they often use her children to do this. They hate her choice to love Trig. They hate her choice to stand by Bristol. They also hate that choice--to give Life.
Both decisions by Sarah Palin and her family were MORAL, ETHICAL, and in every other way, RIGHT.
Life is Precious! All life is Precious from Natural Conception to Natural Death. We are called to Cherish Life, to protect Life.
I wish Sarah Palin the best, and I pray that her decision truly IS in God's Will for her family.
I pray God's Mercy on those who so dislike her that they would destroy her.
