Sarah Palin: “Great enthusiasm and insistence to protect the heart of America in Naples”
From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:
Great enthusiasm and insistence on a united team effort to protect the heart of America was in Naples! By the way, on this day in history in 1968, NBC cut away from the final minutes of the big New York Jets vs. Oakland Raiders game to begin the TV special, “Heidi,” so the movie would start on schedule. Meanwhile, the Raiders came from behind to beat the Jets 43-32! Now, as I mention in “Good Tidings and Great Joy” (Kindle) we didn’t have live TV in Alaska back then because of our young state’s unique location and rugged conditions, so that traumatic media distraction didn’t affect our day (we wouldn’t know of it until proceeding radio reports). But lesson learned.
We can apply this story to today’s political and economic climate with all the distractions and interruptions to what’s really going on behind the scenes as our freedoms are diminished day by day with the march towards socialized medicine, our government spying on us, the IRS targeting patriotic Americans, and the bloated federal bureaucracy and our exploding national debt hurtling out of control. But unanticipated outcomes do occur. The underdog does win!
Well that’s America today! We the People aren’t giving up; we “come from behind” and we win over this out of control government and political correctness run amok… all while attempts to distract ensue. Also, ironically on this day in history in 1800 Congress met for first time in the partially completed Capitol building. Look how far we’ve strayed since then from the Constitutional balance of power with Obama’s actions today.
So, on this fine football day, consider this day in history. Don’t let your guard down, America; don’t let their distractions take your eye off ball. As big government fumbles and penalizes us with broken policies and false promises, we must focus on the goal line and push for a come from behind victory! With a united team effort in 2014, we’ll win! It starts with great patriots like those we met yesterday in Naples, Florida, at the book signing and SarahPAC event.
