This is a guest writer for NAAO. Thanks to the writer for allowing us to us his article. His name is rog mcleod.
I am a white man who is thougroughy disgusted by the treatment of American native people. Promises and tereaties have been broken fron the start. It follows through. It’s been a long time since the natives of this country had a voice. Now is the time to voice yourselves! Like I said I am white but I am totally disgusted on how my ancestors treated native Americans. My ancestors were sneaky and underhanded people. I am the opposite of that. The US government has once again turned its back on you. In 1787 it was said that all native people would have free health care courtesy the government. It has not come true. So for 220 years a promise or treaty has not come true. Native Americans living in the USA have been shafted! Again! Native American people, stand tall and fight for what was promised to you 220 years ago! You have the right to do it. I will stand by you when you stand up! I am a white man but I know a bit about history and I understand the history and that’s why I will stand with you in victory!
Thanks to my good friend and member of our group wildflowersandi, for such a great video. The mainstream media has not reported on this, be sure to pass it around……
The words spoken last night, by Sarah Palin, cut like a knife. The powerful speech at the RNC showed America, just what she was made of. I have no doubt now why John McCain choose her.
She has the uncannily ability to thrust words in like knives, then twist. In some aspects she reminds me of Harry Truman. “Give Me Hell Harry”, had a straightforward approach, that sometimes offended his colleagues. For example, he had a plaque on his desk that said, “The Buck Stops Here”.
Below are some things Sarah Palin said last night, things we all have said, but found no one listening….
And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves.
I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren’t listening.
We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.
She went on to say:
But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
Politics isn’t just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.
We’ve all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers.
And there is much to like and admire about our opponent.
But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform — not even in the state Senate.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word “victory” except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.
Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.
Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.
Al-Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it.
Congress spends too much … he promises more.
Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.
The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes.
My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.” This world of threats and dangers is not just a community, and it doesn’t just need an organizer.
For a season, a gifted speaker can inspire with his words.
For a lifetime, John McCain has inspired with his deeds.
If character is the measure in this election … and hope the theme … and change the goal we share, then I ask you to join our cause. Join our cause and help America elect a great man as the next president of the United States.
Thank you all, and may God bless America.”
This truly was a inspiring speech, it does not even compare to the almost faux speeches made by many of the democrats at their convention. The speech came across, natural and honest. The ones at the DNC seemed forced, almost to the point of unbelievable.
I am sure this will not be the last time, we hear from Sarah Plain, and I am sure she will continue to thrust the knife in and twist…..
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
I cannot how happy and proud I am today. John McCain has done the most extraordinary thing. He did what the Democrats did not have the courage to do. By naming Sarah Palin to be his Vice Presidential choice. Here is a little background on Sarah:
Palin’s husband, Todd, is a Yup’ik Alaskan native. Outside the fishing season, Todd works for BP at an oil field on Alaska’s North Slope and is a champion snowmobiler, winning the 2000-mile “Iron Dog” race four times. The two eloped shortly after Palin graduated from college; when they learned they needed witnesses for the civil ceremony, they recruited two residents from the old-age home down the street. The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Anchorage.
On September 11, 2007, the Palins’ eighteen-year-old son Track, eldest of five, joined the Army. He now serves in an infantry brigade and will be deployed to Iraq in September 2008. She also has three daughters: Bristol, 17; Willow, 13; and Piper, 7. On April 18, 2008, Palin gave birth to her second son, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who has Down syndrome. She returned to the office three days after giving birth. Palin refused to let the results of prenatal genetic testing change her decision to have the baby. “I’m looking at him right now, and I see perfection,” Palin said. “Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?”
Details of Palin’s personal life have contributed to her political image. She hunts, eats moose hamburger, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane. Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association.
The question I have to ask, of the Obama camp, and the biased media is how long before the attacks start? The clear sexism durning this election, was very apparent. I am sure it will begin again, the question is how soon?
I also wanted to thank John McCain, for showing women in this country we do not need to be thrown under the bus! And giving us, the respect so deserved.
