Part of life in Iowa is seeing politicians descend on the state almost constantly. With 2014 elections around the corner, it's prime time fundraising season.
The 13th annual "Friends of the Family Banquet" for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition took place on the state fair grounds.  Two well known "tea party" members came to Des Moines.
From Utah, Republican Senator Mike Lee stood at the podium.  A major part of the de-fund "ObamaCare" movement in D.C., he welcomes a civil debate within the Republican Party.
He drew parallels between now and 1976, when grass roots rumbles paved the way for the wildly popular Ronald Reagan - some say taking the party further to the political right.
He says the same path will take them to the majority party in the capitol once a leader emerges to bridge the void between the grassroots and the party establishment.

"As Americans who believe in strong communities, in faith and in freedom, it is our right, it is our duty to mark the way for others to follow.  Let us start today," says Senator Lee.
Gov. Terry Branstad, Representative Steve King and many other social and religious conservatives spoke, but the final speaker has spent a lot of time in Iowa.

The self-proclaimed "Mama Grizzly" herself, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin made the trip  to pump up this crowd of more than a thousand.
She promoted her new book and spoke about her opinions in Washington.
She thinks the government is too big, too intrusive and the policies have gone too far.
With fall coming up, she disagrees with not allowing mangers, crosses and Christmas decorations in public places, calling it a "war on Christmas".
She warns conservatives about Republicans who sell out.  She joined Senator Mike Lee when she expressed the need to repeal and replace "ObamaCare".

"Remember this, they promised that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against ObamaCare, but when it comes time to stand and de-fund it, they waved the white flag of surrender and they through under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight for us good guys like Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee," says Fmr. Gov. Palin.

These big names keep on coming to Iowa, so political and social groups can start raising money to fund campaigns.  There's no end in sight.  Former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan returns next week.

PALIN VISIT: Former Governor Speaks To Iowans

Saturday night in Des Moines, Sarah Palin drew in a record crowd at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition Dinner. Utah Senator, Mike Lee, also joined Palin, delivering a message of faith. There’s always two sides to every situation. “It’s amazing how many of these Christians look at us with animosity and hatred in their eyes,” says Tom Harvey.

He stands silently; protesting the separation of church and state but inside it’s a different story. Supporter, Naomi Leinen, says “I actually got heckled on my way in; I said on my quarter it says in god we trust.” At the Iowa Faith and Freedom event, religion is the common denominator. “We are seeing a lot of the fellow mind individuals who are conservative and want to see America grow,” says Richard Wearmouth of Independence, Iowa. H

elping lead the conservatives tonight was Utah Senator Mike Lee and Mama Grizzly herself, Sarah Palin. “We are endowed by our creator and faith is the integral part in securing our liberties,” preached Palin. The former governor of Alaska not only talked about faith but other hot button political issues. “Oh goodness even if you like your health care plan you can’t keep it because “you silly goose”, “you silly Iowan” you didn’t really like your health plan, that you thought you could afford, you just thought you did.”

She blamed Obama for the rising debt ceiling and encouraged a tea party movement, thing the supporters agreed with. Vonnie Kinkade says, “We gotta get our country turned around and going back in the right direction.” Palin ended her speech encouraging people to keep the faith and promising the Obama Era will end soon. In case you wondered, Palin didn’t say anything about running for president in 2016.
