Governor Palin, today I say "Happy Birthday" and "Thank you" for standing up for the values that are so vital to this nation. Thank you for taking the heat from the haters because you were willing to speak the truth. You were given the charge of speaking boldly on your opponents' associations, massive and mistaken spread-the-wealth plan, and total disregard for human life. You endured more heat after the election while the McCain camp was content to let you be beaten from post to pillar. You took that charge and ran with it, glanced back and saw a multitude of people who are today still saying, "Run, Sarah, run!" And you know what we're talking about! So do they; that's why they're still trying to destroy you.
Ms. Palin, yes, "Ronald Reagan in a skirt," is a title that fits you well--the Ronald Reagan who also had a birthday just a few days ago, the Ronald Reagan who is considered by many, if not most, Republican conservatives to be the greatest president this nation has ever seen. You both sent forth a battle cry against big government, high taxes, and energy dependence. During his RNC speech, Ronald Reagan said, "America must get to work producing more energy" rather than simply conserving energy. He implored the powers that be to tap into the resources we already have. Here we are all these years later, and you, Governor Palin, are raising those same issues, over and over stating that ANWR is a key to our future. Your "baby" is energy. In fact, you are considered an expert on energy, and you know that our need to tap into our own energy is not only an energy issue, but a national security issue. Being beholden to nations that do not have our best interest at heart is dangerous indeed.
