Blog Title Change: "Palin-ism In the Presidency 2016"

Sharp-eyed readers will have noticed this site has changed from "Palin4President2016" to "Palin-ism in the Presidency 2016." I foreshadowed the possibility of this change in an earlier post;

"Updated:Palin To Put Supporters And Haters Out Of "Will She Run" Misery By (End) July?"

where I set out my reasons for believing that if Governor Palin had not declared a candidacy for the presidency by the end of July she was most likely not going to run.

July has come and gone and the basic premise that, in my opinion, no field structure, campaign staff and the usual accouterments of a run were not in place, she would most likely not be running-they appear nto to be and, again in my opinion she is not running for the 2016 nomination.

Her interview with Mark Levin where she stated:

"About her own political future Levin asked, "Would you ever consider running for office again? Whether it’s the Senate, whether it’s Governor, whether it’s President .. is that something you flirt with now and then? Or .. you’re done with it?"  Without providing any time frame, Palin answered "Oh, absolutely.  Yes absolutely.  I certainly love my freedom right now, oh my goodness it’s just heavenly .. But yes, certainly I would not be opposed to running for office at some point."

Makes it clear to me she has other priorities which C4P described, correctly in my opinion as:

"For now, the Governor appears focused on trying "to get good candidates all across the nation elected."  Palin emphasized that her PAC will continue to search for underdog candidates that aren’t "on anyone’s radar screen" and giving them a boost."

As I set out previously in my "credo" reproduced below this is not a "fan site" but a serious exploration of how to promote eternal conservative principles through the best possible vehicle, which vehicle is in my opinion, through Governor Palin and her supported candidates and support sites. This newly named site will continue, vehemently, to continue that quest through dedicated support of Governor Palin and her ideals, ethics and values.

If things change and Governor Palin decides to run I will of course change the title, and emphasis, back.

Whilst We Wait On Governor Palin-A Credo

This site is not absolutely about Sarah Palin regardless of the Blog title. Of course I, and I am sure a massive number of others, judging by her Facebook followers being over 3 million, would wish her to run in 2016.

But Palin is only one person, and a person with massive family commitments, especially with Trig of course. It may be that she has developed a taste for the freedom from financial constraints and from media criticism worries, and is happy to enjoy the rest of her life in comfort and ease.

If so, good for her. Surely nobody else in public life has endured the slings and arrows of outrageous leftism over the last seven years and would be entitled to such a respite as her skills and endurance has gained for her.

There are of course many options for public involvement open to her. She will be in demand as public speaker for some time yet as an historic figure at least.

Palin can of course continue endorsing and campaigning for candidates she considers it important to do so. Her influence as an endorser is undiminished as e.g Ted Cruz in Texas will testify Sasse and Fischer in Nebraska etc etc can testify.

But even if none of these options appeal to her (which I doubt) this blog would change from Palin4President2016 to "Palin-ism In The Presidency 2016". No matter how great or influential and correct a person's political, social and economic  ideas and ideals are, they will outlive their originator if they have lasting value.

The "common sense conservatism" policies that Sarah Palin espouses and exemplifies, are lasting if not timeless and will be her legacy no matter what her personal future holds. An outline of  what she, and this site stands for are

In the meantime, unless or until Palin herself  advises she will cease any activism which might lead her to make a run for office, the blog title will stay as it is. Should she decide to leave the political scene then a simple change of emphasis from the person to the policies the person espoused will suffice.

If Palin chooses not to run in 2016 but endorses a candidate
enthusiastically then, in that person "Palin-ism in the Presidency" comes into effect. Thus, in effect, Palin herself is the candidate and can be said to be running.

As for myself I have enormously enjoyed writing about Palin for all these years, don't regret a moment of it (except for having at times to dialogue with obsessed idiots from the likes of "Immoral Minority.) I have through this site honed my writing ability, such as it is and have had many articles published at major avenues.

Most of all I've enjoyed the company of many wonderful, intelligent and dedicated people and for that above all I thank Governor Palin.
