Sarah Palin on "No More Kings"

At the 2014 Western Conservative Summit, former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) rallied the audience of 2,000 conservative grassroots activists with a scathing speech decrying politics in the District of Calamity (sic).  

Palin noted that: "[W]e don't do kings."  But this was not a feel good historical allusion ala Schoolhouse Rock. Palin colloquially ticked off a list of offenses which the Obama Administration has been involved:

Man rocking us to our core. From Benghazi. Fast and Furious gun running. Stimulus bust...greenies on our greenbacks. And scandals? NSA spies. Obamacare lies. VA...let's die.The IRS aims to repress conservative's voice. The DOJ wiretaps reporters. Violation of our religious rights. And then there's ignoring illegal, in house fundraising that you heard recently has been going on...the list of abuses it goes on and on...And look alone not defending borders is dereliction of duty. Violating the oath of office. If that's not impeachable....
Castigating the most polemic and progressive President in our nation's history would seem to be in a conservative's Common Core (sic).  However, Palin embodied the spirit of the Tea Party speaking on behalf of the Forgotten Man by challenging  Congressional Republicans to live up to their oaths of office.

Palin acknowledged that making the case for impeachment was not difficult. What is difficult is to have the will to do what's right. Inevitably that means impeachment.

Naturally, liberals lambaste Palin as being stupid  not just for being a conservative female politician but also for doubling down on impeachment.

But Republican party regulars also bristle at the suggestion of doing something controversial just before an election so the media can alienate prospective voters from voting for the GOP.  As for the cautious inaction modus operandi, Palin notes that it misses the point that Obama is abrogating Congressional authority.  Moreover, Palin laments that big GOP majorities do not necessarily reign in radicals, as was demonstrated from the wake of the 2010 wave election.

To buttress her call for patriotic citizens to unite and have the will to do their part in doing right, Palin implored:

It is our work now-- it is our turn. This President's Forgotten Man is "We the People". And We the People know that our best days are still ahead because we know that God shed his grace on thee America. He's given us our freedom to do what's right.  God doesn't drive parked cars-- I think he expects us to get up and take action in order to defend these freedoms that are God given.  I think that it's an affront to God to let this go on as He gave us these freedoms.  We're not going to let someone-- a person, a party-- take them from us.  We are not going to dethrone God and substitute Him with someone who wants to play God. 

Palin closed her provocative comments by invoking Colorado's motto-- "Nothing without Providence".

Invoking patriotism along  traditional understandings of our founding (and believing them), recognizing God in America, adhering to the Constitution, advocating doing the right thing-- no wonder why progressives and the GOP Cocktail Party (not always different entities) consider Sarah Palin such a pariah.
