I write this letter from the ultra-liberal, government owned and occupied state of New York. I am deeply saddened about your decision to not run for president in the 2012 election cycle. While I respect your decision and reasons for declining to run at this time, I beg you to reconsider.
Please know that this is not mere idol worship on my part. I am a cynical conservative from New York. I have studied your record as Mayor of Wasilla, Commissioner of Oil and Gas, Governor of Alaska, VP candidate in 2008 and campaigner in the 2010 elections. From studying your 20+ year political career, I know that you are a real deal reformer and exactly what America needs right now.
While I have a strong faith in God and engage in private prayer on occasion, I’m not exactly what you would call “church going folk.” However, I want you to know that before your decision, I made it over to my local church—St. John the Baptist—dipped my fingers in the Holy Water, made the sign of the cross, got down on bended knees and prayed that God would urge you to run. I did the same shortly after your decision and asked Him to make you reconsider.
I watched “The Undefeated” last night for the third time. There was a part in the film that inspired me to write this letter. It was around the time of great tumult for Alaska. Rick Halford urged you to run for Governor. He reminded you about the biblical story of David and the Five Stones. He said, “You have the Five Stones. You have the right positions on ethics. On energy. On governments appropriate role. You’re different—Alaska needs something different. And while you won’t have the establishment support, Alaska needs change and you should run for Governor.”
Well Sarah, I’m writing today to say—you STILL have the Five Stones. Those stones that Halford spoke to you about that applied to Alaska, now apply to our great country. This country is in serious trouble. Like Alaska needed you back then, America needs you now. After four years of Barack Obama, America needs serious change and serious reform.
I am sure that you are aware of an online movement on Facebook called “Sarah Palin’s Earthquake.” It is a gathering of thousands of like-minded supporters—like me—who are not idol worshiping, but have studied your record and accomplishments and know that you are the right person for the job. In short, we want you to reconsider. If you decline, please know that the majority of us understand and we will continue to support you and your quest to re-take the Senate and saving the House in 2012.
