Sarah Palin bailed out the floundering McCain presidential campaign.   Then she became the media phenomenon and is now running at a higher approval rate than the embattled Barrack Obama.  Yet some “conservative” media figures have taken it up themselves to promote the same unfounded charges against her that are typically levied by the Left’s smear merchants.

A Republican woman, a strategists on the Leon Charney show actually said that she was a drag on the McCain ticket.  If you do not like Sarah Palin or do not think she is ready to be president, that is one thing, but to observe that campaign and suggest that McCain would have come closer to winning without her defies good sense.  He would have done better than 47% with Romney?  Even with Hutchinson?  Making such a claim brings ones own powers of perception into question, thought a suspect the young lady was more a victim of what she wishes were the truth.  She also criticized the Republicans for not going along with the Presidents massive budget request, though now it turns out that is one of the sources of the Party’s higher approval rating.

Haven’t heard from her lately.  Oh well.

Then there’s David Brooks.  He said of Sarah Palin “She’s a joke.  The president has got two wars to fight,” and that he didn’t have time to worry about her.  Yet in that time his approval rate has plummeted even further, and he hasn’t exactly engaged the Afghanistan War with vigor and resolve.  But when Brooks makes this kind of statement, he shows that it is he who is the joke.  Either he is insulting the intelligence of those who support her, or her is somehow unaware of this m movement’s embrace of Palin.  If he insults our intelligence, then he is a fool. 

Recent polls show  the Tea Party has moved ahead of the Democrat and Republican Party.  And if he was so good and gauging the landscape he would know that Palin extremely popular with this movement, gaining approval from many would say they may not vote for any other Republicans.

And if he doesn’t understand the depth of her appeal with us, then he obviously isn’t very good at what he does.  I get same questions from members of the St. Louis School.  “What’s he ever done?”  and “Like he is relevant?”.  So Mr. Brooks, it is you who are now irrelevant.  You have made the mistake of putting your “record” against a Sarah Palin who actually did something economically viable in Alaska with the oil company renegotiation. 

David Brooks, you have marginalized yourself.  It is we who do not have time for “conservatives” like you.

We have a nation to save.

St. Louis Citizenship Movement

The Greyfalcon is a current events and political blog.   The focus will be on advancing the conservation on how freedom is being impacted by this  federal government’s agenda.  The goal is to develop a fellowship amongst conservatives, independents, and everyone  else who may be  concerned about the current state of affairs in America today.   The Greyfalcon advocates a common sense coalition, not limited to alignment or identification.  Though  written from a conservative perspective,  the ultimate cause is the phenomenon that has evolved into this generation’s most energized citizenship movement.  This movement was spearheaded by some conservatives, but now has grown to include millions of independents, moderate Democrats, and even many liberals who are disaffected by the overbearing directives coming from this government.                                        

In this case we make a distinction between liberals and progressive authoritarians.  Liberals are basically those who seek to use government policy to achieve what they perceive to fairness and balance, for the sake of improving the lot of the less fortunate.  A true liberal wants to raise taxes on the wealthy to help those in need based on a genuine sense of altruism.  Dennis Kusinich and Kendrick Meeks are liberals in this respect.  Progressive authoritarians differ from liberals in that they openly forsake the interests of the “poor” for the sake of achieving control and punishing those citizens they find threatening.   Massive inflationary spending, the cigarette and soda taxes, and the proposed looting of medicare are all measures that hurt low income families.  These and other such measures are designed to subordinate individual behavior to the public sector.   At best, they believe that individuals are unable to make the best decisions for themselves, and at worst they simply see themselves as having the right to dictate terms because they are in the government.  Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Barbra Boxer, Dick Durbin, and Barrack Obama are all progressive authoritarians. 

This clear distinction between liberals and progressive authoritarians is vitally important to the growing citizenship movement.  Historically, true liberals opposed giving the government  too much power, and were defined by their desire  for freedom.  But this new cabal in power today are losing the confidence of  these very liberals, as they are obviously not lovers of individual freedom.  So even though The Greyfalcon is certainly a conservative blog,  it invites betrayed liberals to join in this populist campaign to restore the vitality of the greatest nation on earth.  And we encourage Democrats to retake their party from the dogmatic usurpers who have turned it into a front for big money identity politics and media manipulation.   And we call on those around the world voice their belief in America and the universal truth that freedom and strength are always better that socialism and surrender.
