Waiting on Servant Palin

A huge victory for the Tea Party this evening, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann won the Iowa Straw Poll in the first big test of the 2012 Republican presidential race.

You’re probably wondering how Bachmann’s victory could have anything to do with a Palin candidacy but it's pretty simple really; Sarah Palin is part of the Tea Party and Michele Bachmann wants to be the face of the Tea Party.

Don't get me wrong, I have much respect for Congresswoman Bachmann. She has stood firm in her convictions, has steadfastly taken a stand for conservative policies and has immense courage to fight against President Obama and his radical agenda.

So, who's on first? Palin or Bachmann?

It's a free country (as of today) and I am blessed to be able to express my opinion, so here it is: the Tea Party is on first and Governor Palin has been right there with us every step of the way. Not only has she stood in the crowd among us but she helped grow the Tea Party. She helped awaken a sleeping America. Her strong words to fight for liberty resonated with everyday average Americans across the nation. She has continued to express, "the Tea Party doesn't need a leader, it's a movement of the people", and she's right—we don't need a leader and we don't want a leader.

And what about Michele? 

Bachmann stepped in to be the face of the Tea Party movement. Here's the thing Michele, we don't want a "face" of a movement of 'We the People'. The only face(s) we will accept are the faces of our forefathers.

We simply want someone who has stood beside us during this time of suffering. We want someone who has been fighting right along side us. We want someone who doesn't need a title to make a difference, someone who would only choose to serve if we called upon them for the burdening responsibility. And Sarah, we need you.

The presidency is a sacrifice—to those who truly want to better the nation. The presidency is comparable to military service. It's not something you happily sign up for. Nobody excitedly takes on the challenge of service which likely includes getting bullets fired at you.

I want the heart of a veteran—a servant. I choose the American that has stood beside me during these past three devastating years. Someone who has felt my pain, who has hurt when I hurt, who has carried the same heavy burdens I carry.

I will not choose a candidate who chooses to serve just to check off "president" from their list of accomplishments. I choose the one who has stood beside me every moment since Barack Obama took office. When I cried the night Obama was declared the 2008 victor, Sarah Palin cried along with me.

America, you are hurting and we will NOT survive this battle without the heart of a servant—one that will lay it all down for pure love for country.

Congratulations Michele on your victory in Iowa, but I’m still waiting on Servant Palin.
