“I am not here as a serf or vassal. I am not begging my lords for mercy. I’m a born free American woman, wife, mother and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for my well-being, and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty. And you have faltered.”

    God bless her and protect she and her family. I expect she’ll face even more harassment from the faux messiah and his acoltyes,

    So when an American citizen stands up and tells the government that they work for US, they are whiners?

    What a moron.

    Certainly someone who has never had the government standing in the way while they tried to accomplish something. “You didn’t build that” because we wouldn’t let you.

    Awesome! And I read somebody on ACE saying all people will see is a “bleached-blonde Southern lady with an accent” and think she’s an ignorant redneck. Are they crazy? That woman has a haircut, coloring, and suit (pearls??) that cost a lot of money and is definitely upper-middle-class. Sometimes even conservatives misjudge big time. She was fabulous.

    Yeah and I notice a lot of males are “just sayin'” when they call Palin “shrill,” too. Women act like women, and that is RIGHT, not wrong. Our voices are higher, and yeah, emotion comes into them sometimes, too. Ain’t it great? (Sorry – but last “political” page I was on had pics of “babes,” letting us know they value us all long as we’re 19 and 110 lbs., in provocative poses., so I’m still a bit sensitive ANOTHER FEMALE TRAIT.)
