Dear Sarah, we would greatly appreciate it if you would show the words below, and the comments in the signatures section, to your family, in addition to looking over it yourself. Thank you so much!!
Sarah, you would be a wonderful leader for America. We know you said you will not run, but we hope you reconsider your decision. When we heard you say you decided not to run, we were deeply saddened.
It is true that a President alone can't turn the country around. It's important to have a good Congress, good local leaders, and regular, ordinary citizens can make a difference too. We understand that, and we will do our part to help other national and local politicians who have a patriotic, Constitutional message get elected. However, we are very concerned about the Presidency. President Obama is not doing well at all, and it is vital to our nation that we are led by a President who understands the fundamental principles of America, and doesn't want to transform the country, but instead wants to restore all that is good about it.
If you change your mind, we promise that we will stand by your side and work hard to help out however we can with your campaign. We are praying for your family. We will tell others about The Undefeated documentary, which is all about your record. We will fight the smears and lies people make up about you. We will donate a lot of money- many of us had money set aside already because we thought you would run. We can still donate that money to you! If you run for President, you will not be alone. We will be with you, and God will be with you.
Thank you for all you've done to spread your great message across America. You have accomplished so much. Now, hopefully it's time to start a new chapter: the Palin 2012 campaign!
The petition creator
Governor Palin, we know you said no. We are in disbelief and are unwilling to accept your decision.We are asking that you reconsider your decision....
Governor, each time you discuss a candidate and name the attributes or qualities that our eventual nominee should have, you are describing yourself. When you talk about the record of reform that the eventual nominee should have, you are describing yourself. When you discuss individual policies that the nominee should have, you are describing yourself. When you discuss your love for this country and your concern for its future you are describing us.
We The People, humbly request that you reconsider your decision to run for President of the United States of America.
There is no other candidate that possesses your record, your quality, your character and your level of understanding of the dire situation in which our country is in. We have no other choice but to ask that you reconsider.
"I need to find this candidate who understands the need for energy independence." - That's YOU.
"I want to find candidates who understand the need to reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that are presently killing American industry..." - That's YOU.
"...and, of course candidates that have a track record of always pushing for minimization of government to strengthen our economy." - That's YOU.
"This is about Americans who are understanding that we have got to get the right people in these positions of leadership in our country to get us back on the right track." - That's YOU.
"A politician is going to let you down." - We don't think of YOU as a politician. We think of you as being "one of us," because you are.
"What we need to do, too, is make sure that we are holding both sides of the aisle accountable." - That's YOU.
"We need to call out the wrong-headedness of all of our 'leaders' when they lead us astray; when they lead us down the path towards bankruptcy, which IS going on in our country right now." - YOU can do that in a campaign.
"We have to make sure that people are hearing a fiscally conservative message that makes sense..." - YOU have that message.
"I look forward to hearing more of their details (about the candidates). I look forward to knowing more about a track record of any of these candidates. We learned a lesson in America voting-in a candidate, Barack Obama, who was not vetted. We did not know much about his record or his associations so, trying to figure what is his vision for America; what does he mean by 'fundamentally transforming America' as he promised he would do. Well now we see what he means. He should have been vetted. That's why I'm all for these aggressive debates and very close scrutiny and vetting of all of these candidates so we don't do that again." - YOU are the most vetted candidate in the history of politics in the United States. All of the abuse, threats, and vetting that YOU and WE have undergone over the past three years by the liberal media, some so-called conservative media and by the scourges of our society was for WHAT?
"America IS the exceptional nation and unless we defend our Republic the world will be less prosperous and safe and healthy because it all depends on where America goes. Where we, as leaders of the free world, where America heads, so goes the rest of the world." - The world needs YOU.
The pendulum has swung. It has gone from the right, to the FAR-left and now it is swinging back to the Right just as hard as it swung to the left. Give US the opportunity to elect a President that possesses the ability to say yes or NO to both sides when necessary. Give US the opportunity to elect a President that CAN work with both sides, whether or not is is "politically expedient." Give US the opportunity to elect a President that can't be bought and won't be corrupted and has proven so. Give US the opportunity to elect a President that is seeking the office for no personal gain. Give US the opportunity to elect a President that truly understands the meaning of selfless service to her country. Give US the opportunity to elect a President of the United States that will listen to THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE and will execute her duties as such.
You ARE "Mrs. Smith." We need YOU to go to Washington.
We don't WANT just "ABO" (Anybody But Obama), WE WANT YOU!!!
We voted for YOU in 2008. Please, give us the opportunity to do so again. Please, put it into our God-led hands as to whether or not you will be the next President of the United States.
Please, reconsider your decision.
Thank you, Governor Palin.
We the People of the United States of America
P.S. We need YOU to have a title in order to make maximum impact on the future of this country and the world and to restore the greatness of America.
Dear Governor Palin,
We the people WANT to send you to Washington to serve this great nation. We don't want to send anyone else. You talk of the need for "sudden and relentless reform", transparency, energy development, debt reduction and lowering of taxes. YOU are the only one who can guarantee America those things will be accomplished.
I know you say that people don't need a title but in reality someone is going to have the title of POTUS. Why not you? I want that someone to be you.
You asked us Mama Grizzlies to rise up and help take this nation back and restore it to what our founding fathers intended. Well, the earth will shake with the loud echo our our grrrrrrrrr and give you that earthquake you are looking for. We are ready but we need you IN the arena, not on the sidelines.
You once said a ship is safe in harbor but that his not what a ship is built for and you echo Bristol when she says they are going to criticize anyway so you might as well dance and tonight you said that you are willing to take the bullets while others do their work. You also said that only dead fish go with the flow and that most people don't take on crony capitalism because they are afraid.
These are NOT the words of someone who has chosen to cheer from the sidelines. These are the words of a fighter. These are the words of someone looking for a challenge.
Since we are not above begging here, I plead with you to reconsider your decision. I truly believe that God created you "for such a time as this" and our country needs you.
There is NO substitute.
Perhaps you have taught us too well because right here, right now, this Palinista is going rogue. Game on! I am asking you to reconsider your decision and take the challenge of running for President. I'm hear, I'm clear, get used to it. I won't stop asking until you change your mind. Let's just call it a "sudden and relentless request" :)
You are the candidate that we need. I refuse to compromise. I have spent the last 24 hours looking at the other candidates. I realize that it is NOT by Palin bias as the reason I think they are a crappy lot to choose from. They really ARE a crappy lot to choose from.
So I realize at this point, I have nothing to lose by asking you to reconsider and everything to gain if you do.
Sincerely and respectfully,
A Sarah Palin Supporter
