Palin: Charismatic Constitutionalist

James Lewis from the American Thinker:
"Sarah Palin is a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon in politics. She is a charismatic constitutionalist. It's the combination that's so vital. Reagan had it. It scares the Democrats to death.

"It is time for a constitutionalist who can talk straight with the American people. Human nature hasn't changed. The U.S. Constitution has not lost relevance. It is still the only functioning revolutionary political document in history. The Constitution limits the power class. Marxism empowers the powerful. It's not hard to understand. If Sarah Palin can get that single truth across to the American people, she will win and go on to become another Ronald Reagan.

"Expect all the Establishment forces to fight against a constitutionalist conservative for president. It scares them more than a Marxist in the White House."
[emphasis added]
None of the other candidates seem able to make fundamental truths clear like Governor Palin does.

Reagan could.
"We win, they lose."
"Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem."

That was Lincoln's greatness too. He spoke the truth with clarity.
"I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free."
It was a painful truth and cost the nation dearly in blood to conform to that truth.

The longer truth is avoided the harder the day of reckoning.

Rare is the political leader who has both the gift to communicate basic truths and the courage to carry through on them. That's the kind of candidate and president we need.
