September 3, 2008 – VP, Acceptance Speech, GOP Convention
I’ve been trying to convince my fellow conservatives that they have been wasting their time in a fruitless quest for a new Ronald Reagan to emerge and lead our party and our nation. I insisted that we’d never see his like again because he was one of a kind.
I was wrong!
“Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time he’s a she.
And what a she!
In one blockbuster of a speech, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin resurrected my Dad’s indomitable spirit and sent it soaring above the convention center, shooting shock waves through the cynical media’s assigned spaces and electrifying the huge audience with the kind of inspiring rhetoric we haven’t heard since my Dad left the scene.

September 3, 2011 – Restoring America Speech,
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin outlined her five-point economic plan at Indianola:
- Enforce 10th Amendment
- Repeal ObamaCare
- Prioritize, Cut, cancel unused stimulus
- Become an energy Superpower, drill here, drill now.
- Cut corporate income tax and eliminate corporate welfare, loopholes, bailouts.
Not related to Indianola, but very much related to our proposed intervention in Syria, Gov. Palin delineated her five-point military doctrine in Denver, Colorado three months prior. That doctrine is:
- Only commit forces when US interests at stake
- Fight to win
- Clearly defined goals and objectives
- US soldiers never under a foreign command
- Using force should be last resort

In an unprecedented act for any politician in either party – Gov. Palin walked two passes and spent more time with us than even on her own speech. All of us were drenched from on-and-off rainstorms that passed through the area. But, when Gov. Palin got on stage and was with us, the sun came out.
All 2,000 of us who were there have our stories and precious memories. Here is mine:
