Running against a political party (Dems) that want to give away stuff to voters (allegedly for free) is tough. Sarah Palin understands that. She also understands that the only stuff that the Dems can’t give away is self respect. That is something one has to earn. And one doesn’t earn it by accepting free stuff.
Middle America understands that concept. That is the foundation of this great country. Liberals don’t get it. They are the old nobility, tossing the largesse of token coins to the serfs, after having plundered the productivity of the masses. But that only works as long as the serfs are willing to pick up those tossed coins. Beware of the day they fling them back! Then run and hide. The press, handmaiden estate to the nobility, are among the first to feel the brunt of resentment. Usually with violence; with Sarah Palin it’s a smile-covered knife. Middle America cheers.
Middle Americans understand real everyday life. They are descended from European serfs who longer wanted to remain serfs. But the East Coast liberals continue to preach, “serfs you were, serfs you are, serfs you will be. Listen to your betters.” Now comes an eruption.
That is why, when push comes to shove, real Americans are against transference of wealth under the guise of taxes, affirmative action, making nice to terrorists and foreign governments. It is all a matter of self respect. When one earns that one no longer accepts condescension. Not from anyone, any group or any country.p>Democrats are short on self-respect.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
