I think that the Conservatives need to be looking to fellow Conservatives from Alaska and seeking their opinion on Palin, someone I would recommend reading is Mr. Jerad from AK, who has done several terrific blog posts on Palin (I agree 100 percent with him), Jerad has campaigned AGAINST Palin in the past and is helping in the fight against her now.
I would also recommend this sermon (which I'm sure all of you have heard, but just in case you haven't) by Dr. Morecraft, my new favorite out of all of his great lectures.
Something else I really recommend is this video by Dr. Voddie Baucham in which he debates Margaret Feinberg.
One of the highlights in this video is when he rebukes her for "Playing fast and loose with the Text", good stuff ;).
Again, I'm sure you've read this but I have to put it out here, this is one of the most powerful articles that I've read, by Mr. Geoffrey Botkin entitled "The Miraculous Sanctification of the Republican Party".
I find it disgusting the way most male conservatives are acting about this, I've talked to grown men who would not let Palin preach at their church, yet are so ready to declare her their new Über Führer. To throw a woman onto the Front lines of what is a Spiritual War, "For we fight not against flesh and blood", this is not manliness but effeminacy.
To me, it conjures up visions of a mob chanting "Jump, Jump!" to a confused woman, perched on the edge of a precipice.
A couple of weeks ago I was talking to a fellow homeschooler from scouts about politics, we started off by chatting about my meeting former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, he said "WOW I didn't know he was in town, by the way ain't it great that Palin got the VP?", this same guy used to hate McCain, but since he is now the Republican nominee he thinks that McCain can do no wrong.
So I said "No, are you kidding? Not only is she not as conservative as she is being portrayed, but she's a WOMAN" so he replied "Well maybe it's not the best thing, but it's better than Obama".
But is it better than Obama?
Republicans were soooo worried about Ron Paul splitting the ticket even though they agreed with most of what he said, so most of them went for Huckabee or Romney, Ive already done a post on Huckabee, so if you will allow me to go on a short rant....
I COULD NOT vote in any circumstance for Mitt Romney, not only because of his extremely liberal stance on a lot of things, but because he was a member of a cult that denies the Deity of CHRIST, a cult of wolves in sheep's clothing, a cult that is nothing more than an 19th century Branch Davidian.
Romney is the one who split the vote! Because of a lot of Christians who were too pessimistic, scared and weak to vote for the right person, the Biblical candidate is now out and we (supposedly) have to choose between evil and tyranny.
Maybe if Obama did become president the Christians would realize the cost of their stupidity, then we might band together in 2012 and win a victory for America, Christendom and even the World. A new revolution, a revolution without revising our government, but merely seeking to uphold the revolutionary idea that it is "Self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness".
That's the "change" I'm talking about.It looks like it won't be long before the government starts exercising it's might over us, and the Christians are the ones who brought it on, by settling with the lesser of the evils, and because they did not band together with the Joshuas and Calebs who were ready to posses the land the way the LORD wanted them to.
