Dear Governor Palin,
In the long sweep of human events, beginning rightly with the ministry of Christ, men and women have been asking the eternal question: Lord, what do you want of me? From Saul on the road to Damascus, to Martin Luther, at the dawn of the Reformation, to Soldiers who carry their nation’s best hopes and dreams in defense of liberty, this question has been repeated. In farm and factory, in churches across the globe and in the corridors of power as leaders have knelt in prayer, that question resonates. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln… these two of our nation’s shining stars were humble enough to ask for divine guidance and direction. Washington, his (our) Army in desperate shape, fell to his knees in the snows of Valley Forge and stated the case for a birth of freedom. God answered. Lincoln, on his way to his Inaugural travelled from Springfield, Ill. to Washington, D.C. and along the way, prayed in earnest that God would somehow usher in “a new birth of freedom.” Again, He answered. Neither of these two men were sunshine Patriots. They did, instead, answer their nation’s call to somehow keep the idea of American freedom and exceptionalism alive. In our time, Ronald Reagan understood and answered Freedom’s clarion call. He stepped into the darkness and kindled the fires of freedom for a nation in real peril. He understood, as do you that history summons leaders and beckons them to rise above citizen status to live the life of statesman in defense of liberty That is where we are today.
Governor Palin, the struggles of today hearken us back to an earlier time when the nation’s future was at stake. A time when men and women of enormous faith knelt in the snows in distant places and asked our God for the chance to carry on the work of our forefathers. These struggles hearken us back to a time when, as the patriot song says, Soldiers served our great nation, “ From the frozen fields of Valley Forge to the trail called Ho Chi Minh, to the mountain slopes of Afghanistan to the streets of America.” Governor Palin, will you answer that clarion call? Will you rise up and lend your statecraft, vision, and love of country to serve us as this nation, so richly blessed by God enters yet another “time for testing and choosing"? We, all of us signers of this petition, not unlike our forefathers “mutually pledge to each other (and to you) our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor" and graciously ask that you proudly accept our nomination for President of the United States and know that, just like the Soldiers of Valley Forge, with you at the helm, America’s better days are ahead of her and that America will be as President Reagan so proudly declared in his farewell speech, “...I've spoken of the shining city… in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. “ This is the America we all envision and the one we know, with your leadership as our President, is both real and attainable. Governor Palin, will you allow us to join you on this great crusade? Now is the time, today is the day, our future together is here.
