Governor Palin appeared in Kentucky today to fundraise for Rand Paul, and then she crossed the street to speak at The National Quartet Convention, dedicated to Christian music.
Via WDRB-TV Fox 41:
After Sarah Palin finished her fundraising appearance, she moved from the Crowne Plaza Hotel across the street to Freedom Hall to give a speech on faith and family for the National Quartet Convention.
"That's what we can learn if we have that optimism," she told the assembled crowd. "That's what our country needs now more than ever -- a clear vision and the optimism to get through the challenges that we're facing."
The National Quartet Convention is a Christian music convention. Palin spoke to a receptive audience, saying America is a force for good in the world, and said it is time to turn the country back to God.
She was applauded when she spoke about the need for limited government and a government than can pay for itself.
Palin described herself as a pro-life feminist: "I am one that would like to empower women and let them know that if they find themselves pregnant in less than ideal circumstances, they're capable, they're able, they can pursue an education, they can pursue a career and still give their child life. And if motherhood isn't for them -- adoption is the beautiful choice."
God bless Governor Palin for her refusal to hide who she is--neither her love for country nor her faith in God. I've said this many times, and I will continue to say it: she possesses the spirit we need more of in our country; she is the leader under which America can thrive.
