$20 or $10 for 2010
Happy New Year!!!
Let's hit the ground running!

Dear 2012 Draft Sarah Committee Supporter,

We are on the verge of entering 2010, so let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year!

2009 has been a challenging year for the nation, but one where Governor Palin has taken a stand on a variety of issues that are so crucial to America’s progress. It’s also the year of her best-selling memoir, Going Rogue. I am confident 2010 will be even more exciting.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee started 2009 by attending CPAC in February, which brings me to the point of this correspondence. CPAC, held in our nation’s capital, is the leading conservative gathering in the country. It was at CPAC where we were able to tell people more about the Committee, get feedback from Americans regarding Governor Palin, and acquire valuable contact information as we gained a myriad of online newsletter subscribers and volunteers. February is fast-approaching, and once again the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee wants to have a presence at CPAC.

We need your help.

In honor of 2010, I am asking you to start off the year with a $20 or $10 donation—or more—to the Committee. Contributions will go first towards booth rental and then towards material such as bumper stickers, flyers, shirts, and buttons for CPAC. Many of you are faithful to donate to SarahPAC; would you consider going above and beyond that contribution to make one to the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee as well, and would you consider making that contribution by the 10th of January?

We are doing important work, and even Governor Palin saw fit to thank us in Going Rogue. While we do operate independently of her, we are honored that she has taken note of our efforts. We want to carry on in this new year.

Please visit the website,, to make your donation.

Thank you for considering a gift of $20 or $10, and Happy 2010 once again!

Meeting Sarah (In The Villages, FL)

Monday night after a great men's Bible study I, my father in law, Earl Mock and my youngest daughter, Alyssa headed south on I-75 to get in line to get a bracelet to see Sarah Palin in person and get our copies of Going Rogue: An American Life signed. We got there around 11:00 or 11:15 PM. We set up our chairs and sleeping bags and settled in for the night. Nearly 115 people had already set up their place in line. Some arrived at 1 or 2 PM on Monday. It was a bit chilly, especially in the early morning hours. We met several nice Palin supporters including some really nice young folks, Kelly and Drew from Georgia . UGA students, but we won't hold that against them. GO GATORS!

I gave out several buttons and bumper stickers and sold a few shirts as well, both Monday night and during the day while we waited for Sarah to arrive. It was a long night but more than worth the wait. At around 6 or 6:30 AM the coffee cart came around and we got warmed up with some strong hot coffee and something called a scone.

Being in the top 115 or 120 in line we easily got our bracelets. After that we got a bite to eat and returned to Barnes and Noble to wait for them to form the signing lines based on the letter written on your bracelet. Ours was "B". Around noon they started forming those lines so we had to wait another 2 or 2 1/2 hours in yet another line. Sarah's bus arrived slightly after 2:30. They had already called all of group "A" in and about half of "B" so that put us right in front beside the stage where Sarah would address the crowd and do an interview with Fox's Gretchen Carlson. Seeing her in person truly was like so many before me have written. She has a realness about her that no other politician has. She has an inner beauty that we only glimpse on TV that comes out even more in person. We were in a pretty good spot to take some good pictures. Be sure to check them out from the link below.

I believe she is a person who has been called for such a time as this. Our Nation needs common sense conservatives in Washington. Our Nation needs Sarah Palin.

At around 3 PM Alyssa, my father in law and I approached the signing table. Alyssa was ahead of me and she looked at Alyssa's shirt and smiled pointing at her shirt with a wink. I arrived at the table and she said she liked my shirt, I introduced myself, as the chairman of the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee and she thanked me for my support and encouragement. She sort of looked like she recognized my name when I introduced myself, but maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part. They were pushing the line through quickly so there was not much more time than that. I did get to chat with her dad Chuck Heath for about 5 or 10 minutes. I asked him to convince his daughter to run in 2012. Not surprisingly he did not really answer. My father in law commented that he seemed like a good ole country boy, just like one of us. I said that is what is so great about him and Sarah... she is one of us.

All in all it was more than worth the sleeping in a lawn chair, enduring the cold in our sleeping bags and waiting all day to see Sarah in person. I told a reporter, as we left the signing that Sarah was (is) my political hero. I think millions are saying that.

It was a pleasure meeting so many fellow Palin supporters, ignoring the hecklers hurling their insults and profanity at us did not hindering our resolve to see Sarah and those kind of actions will not hinder our support of her in the coming years.

I pray that God opens the doors for her to run in 2012 as I know she listens to God and will prayerfully follow where He leads her. Let's all pray, for the sake of our Nation, it is into the White House in 2012.

Randy's Sarah Palin Album

All this admiration is not for shallow reasons. I (and millions more) admire her because She is an unashamed follower of Christ, she is Pro Life, Pro Energy Independence, Pro Business, Pro Military and she a Fiscal Conservative, just to name a few of the reasons I support her. She admires Ronald Reagan and studies his policies and approaches to problems facing this nation then and now and can and will apply those wisdoms in a Palin White House.

My hope is that one day I will be able to sit down with her for a few minutes to share these reasons and many more of why I feel she should run for President in 2012. She is our Esther in 2012.

God Bless Sarah Palin and the Palin family, God Bless America and God Bless you all,

2012 a repeat of 1912?

Bull Moose Party Logo

2012 a repeat of 1912?
By Randy Highsmith, Chairman
2012 Draft Sarah Committee

I post this as a point of discussion. Many have asked me if Sarah Palin runs in 2012 and does not get the Republican nomination will she run as an independent. Only she could answer that question for sure. I am sitting here reading a bit on Teddy Roosevelt (another great American Sarah has been compared to) and I have to wonder will the Republicans go down the same path they did in 1912.

Teddy Roosevelt was president of the United States until 1909. When he left office, William Taft was nominated as the Republican and won the presidency. In 1912, Roosevelt was unhappy with Taft's time in office and put his name forward to become the Republican Party's nominee again. The Party chose to stick with Taft. This angered Roosevelt who walked out of the convention and then formed his own party, the Progressive Party in protest. The party was nicknamed the Bull Moose party. It was taken from a quote by Teddy Roosevelt. When asked whether he was fit to be president, he responded that he was as fit as a "bull moose."

I urge the Republican Party not to make the same error by not supporting Sarah in 2012. I believe the Republican party will split again and that would mean a sure win for Obama and his fellow Socialist, ultimately destroying the America we know. The Republican Party is the party for Conservatives and if we put another Moderate/Liberal Republican as our nominee the party in my opinion will split to unite under the only true, proven and consistent conservative that is Sarah Palin.

If you feel the same as I do let your Republican Leadership at the local, state AND national level they need to get behind Sarah in 2012 and you are putting them on notice that you support Sarah and they need to as well.

I will post all the State Party Contact info here shortly so you will have the info readily available.

Here are some Republican Organizations you may want to share your thoughts with as well.

NY Organizers met Governor Palin this past weekend.

Two of our organizers, Adrienne Ross, our NY State organizer and Kristina Lazzaro our Buffalo, NY organizer, got the pleasure of meeting Governor Palin in person when she was in upstate NY. Auburn, NY was celebrating 50 years of Alaska's statehood. William Seward, who spent much of his life in Auburn is largely responsible for Alaska becoming a state, so Auburn is celebrating Founder's Day--and the governor of Alaska made the long trip from Alaska to the lower 48 to take part in the celebration. Palin also attended an autism awareness fundraiser sponsored by Autism Speaks at Manhattanville College on June 7, 2009 in Purchase, N.Y.

I can not recapture the awesome accounts that Adrienne and Kristina gave so go to their blogs to read the full account. Man I wish had been able to have been there! is Adrienne's Blog and you can read Kristina's account at her blog at

Way to go ladies!!!

2012 Draft Sarah Committee forms Executive Board

Colorado Springs, CO – 20 April 2009

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee ( formed an Executive Board of Directors last week which will help guide the committee members and thousands of supporters in their effort and sole mission to encourage Governor Sarah Palin to run for President in 2012.

Formed in mid-November by co-founders Paul Streitz of Darien, CT and David L. Kelly of Colorado Springs, CO, the federally registered draft Committee has grown from just a handful of supporters to thousands across the nation. “Over the last five months we have grown rapidly and now have 27 State Organizers who are working hard on our mission and are the backbone of our grassroots efforts,” said David Kelly, Treasurer of the Committee. Kelly added, “It was time to take the next step in our organization and build a solid infrastructure within our group to help support our volunteers and keep our focus on having Governor Palin as our next President.”

The (9) members of the Executive Board of Directors include Committee members from Alaska to Florida. The Board held an election for officer positions and elected Randy Highsmith as the new Committee Chairman. Highsmith was the Florida State Organizer. He has been heavily active within the Committee since its inception and is ready to lead and begin spreading the positive message about Governor Sarah Palin. Highsmith said, “Governor Palin represents so many everyday average working people. She shares our conservative values and is our standard bearer. That is why I am so passionate about our work and cause here at the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee.”

Paul Streitz, co-founder and previous Committee Chairman, decided to step down from his post. His hard work and untiring efforts to build a solid foundation for the Committee have been greatly appreciated.

Last week, several State Organizers held their first monthly “meet-ups” in their local communities. The meet-ups, which are public informal meetings of Sarah supporters, are intended to give all in attendance an opportunity to fellowship and network. Alaska State Organizer, April Moore, commented, “If brainstorming ideas with a group as committed and passionate as these folks in Fairbanks are is any indication, soon we will not be able to hold these meetings indoors! From our first meeting, we now have a Fairbanks Organizer and a Facebook Organizer. Volunteer, and there is a job you can do to help 2012 Draft Sarah Committee.”

The committee hopes to have State Organizers in every state in the next few months and plans on becoming increasingly active in their communities.

You can help Governor Palin by supporting SarahPAC today

Dear SarahPAC Supporter,

As Washington, D.C. partisans continue to fight and bicker over "politics as usual," Governor Sarah Palin is working every day to reform government in Alaska and fight for the conservative values we all cherish.

It's been a busy few weeks for Governor Palin. Like many Americans, the Governor is praying for the many families in Alaska that are struggling in a difficult economy. Not content with waiting for the federal government to sort through the mess, Governor Palin is working each day to restore Alaska's economy and put people back to work. That's why she recently proposed legislation that will provide relief for Alaskans struggling to heat their homes and generate the power they need.

Recently, Governor Palin was joined by Franklin Graham as she traveled to Western Alaska. Together, Governor Palin and Mr. Graham toured the region and met with residents of the area. Many of these Alaskans have recently received additional assistance through a partnership between many state agencies and several faith-based, non-profit groups, such as Mr. Graham's Samaritan's Purse.

As you can see, Governor Palin is working each day in Alaska. Her bold actions have helped thousands across the state and is the example of strong, conservative leadership needed throughout the country.

SarahPAC supports leaders and candidates that share Governor Palin's vision of government reform, law taxes, and personal freedom. Governor Palin will soon be traveling the country and working to support leaders who share this vision.

Thank you for being a part of our team. Governor Palin believes our brightest days are ahead and she is honored to have you by her side.



P.S. SarahPAC supports leaders and candidates who share Governor Palin's vision of government reform, law taxes, and personal freedom. Your contribution today will help SarahPAC support Governor Palin's efforts to reform government and help elect leaders who share our conservative values.

Statement from SarahPAC on Governor Palin's selection of Judge Christen

I saw this on Sarah Palin's Facebook page and I thought maybe my readers would want to see it.

Statement from SarahPAC on Governor Palin's selection of Judge Christen

Gov. Palin is totally pro-life. Always has been. Always will be. She believes in a culture of life from cradle to grave. Her choice for Supreme Court judge was made in accordance with Alaska law. She chose the person most qualified from the names sent to her. The Governor's choice has a record of fairness. That is important as the courts sort out some very thorny issues. Governor Palin's choices were either a liberal or an independent. She went with the independent. And as the following article reflects - this selection process is flawed.

Process of selecting Alaska's judges is clearly flawed
By Bob Flint Catholic Anchor Online

Alaska courts have a long history of removing contentious social and cultural issues from the democratic process. Court rulings have forced private hospitals to perform abortions, ordered gay marriage and benefits, required taxpayer funded abortions and interfered with parents' rights to be involved in the abortion decisions of their minor child. These court rulings involve the creation of new and novel legal doctrines untethered to our Constitutional history, intent, or even language. The decisions of the public and their elected representatives are ignored, not to mention the rights of individuals to parent their children or perform services or charity without being forced into immoral and abhorrent practices. The Alaska courts have consistently struck at such basic moral rights as life, family, marriage and conscience, undermining in the process the essential pillars on which society is based. The church does not govern the secular world, which has its own legitimate autonomy, but autonomy does not mean exemption from fundamental moral law. It is the duty of all Catholics to take part in the secular world with such moral principles as their base. This includes the courts, how judges are chosen, how they decide and what they decide. Unlike other public officials, the judiciary operates largely outside the public scrutiny, including the judicial selection process. Policy makers who are elected officials are chosen in a public process and are subject to strict sunshine rules when policy is being made. Unelected policy makers — judges — are selected in secret and are subject to no effective public control or accountability. Therein lies the flaw in the selection process. Our selection method consists of a nominating committee, called the Alaska Judicial Council, made up of the Chief Justice, three lawyers chosen by the bar association and three lay members appointed by the governor. Thus, the lawyers are in the majority. The Judicial Council nominates candidates for appointment by the governor who must select from these nominees. In theory, though not in practice, the Judicial Council ignores political or ideological considerations when nominating, leaving those to the elected official, the governor. The State Constitution's laudable goal was to eliminate the political influence of elections and the cronyism of direct appointment. Regrettably, experience has shown that special interest influence cannot be held at bay, which now turns out to be the biggest legal special interest of all, the Alaska Bar Association. The Alaska Judicial Council deliberates and nominates in secrecy. It issues no reasons for its choices or rejections. Other than vague reference to "most qualified," (a term contained not in the Constitution but in the Judicial Council's own bylaws) or "best available timber," a wish by a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, no discernable standards for choosing nominees exist. Obviously qualified candidates are routinely not nominated. This year, one of only two nominees to the current Supreme Court vacancy was not nominated for the same position last year, thus appearing to have moved from unqualified to qualified in a very short time without any observable change in his actual qualifications. The judicial selection process is clearly flawed and in need of substantial reform. It was undoubtedly an error to entrust the choice of such important public offices to the bar association. If the legal profession and the judges who come from it would respect their role in the democratic system, the current system would work, but that has proved impossible. The temptation of power is simply too great. Short of a Constitutional amendment, the public and the governor can demand transparency in the entire nominating process, the creation of standards by which nominations are made, the elimination of ideological considerations and the nomination of the maximum number of candidates, not the minimum. The selection process and its results cannot be ignored. No progress can be made if time after time the unelected juristocracy intrudes on the workings of democracy with edicts shaping the world to their own ideological and moral vision. The writer is a member of the Alaska Bar Association and an attorney in Anchorage.

Palin urges Obama to veto Stimulus Bill

Governor Sarah Palin told Fox's Greta van Susteren she is against the stimulus bill the way it is right now. She asked Obama to veto it and send it back to Congress so they could read it over and get rid of pork projects and the expanded social programs. She said Congress needed the time to asses how it will effect their individual states. In addition to her comments on the stimulus bill Governor Palin discusses her opposition to the "Fairness" Doctrine.

I joined and made my contribution and I urge you to join me in this support of Governor Palin.

I also want to remind readers of my blog of the petition I started back in November. I want to build this petition to include thousands of names, urging Sarah to run in 2012.

Black Hopes With Limbaugh That Obama Agenda Fails

Mr. Llyod Marcus is a talented singer and conservative activist. Mr Marcus is President of NAACPC (National Asso. For the Advancement of Conservative People of Color). I recently received in my email the below article written by Mr. Marcus and asked him if I could share with you.

Below his article is a link to his website. You can learn more abot Mr. Marcus HERE

Re-printed with permission:

Black Hopes With Limbaugh That Obama Agenda Fails
by Lloyd Marcus

I was in fourth grade. Our teacher presented us with a math problem and left the classroom. Against her instructions, we compared answers. I equated the answer to be 'zero'. Everyone else said “two” was the correct answer. I thought I could not possibly be the only one right. So I changed my answer. To my surprise, our teacher revealed that the correct answer was 'zero'.

Fast forward 50 years later. Once again I find my opinion in the minority. Most black Americans are elated over the election of Obama. But unlike my fellow blacks, I voted principles rather than skin color. President Obama is a hardcore liberal socialist. For example, Obama's stimulus package includes taxpayers paying $500 to every illegal alien.

Despite all his talk of change, Obama's philosophy and rhetoric is standard democrat; everyone is a victim; the solution to every problem is more government spending and control; America's success is evil and harmful to the world; punish the rich; America is inherently racist; your income belongs to government with it deciding how much it allows you to keep. Obama's abortion views equal infanticide.

I love my country. In solidarity with Rush Limbaugh, I too hope Obama's big government liberal agenda fails.

Why do YOU support Sarah?

I am curious. Why do you support Sarah?

For the record I support Sarah because:

  • She is a follower of Christ as am I.

  • She is not ashamed of that fact as I am not ashamed either.

  • She is Pro Life, as am I.

  • She is Pro 2nd Amendment, as am I.

  • She is Pro Business, as am I.

  • She is Pro Energy Independence, as am I.

  • She is a Fiscal Conservative, as am I.

  • She is dedicated to her family, as am I.

    A friend from Alaska said people can relate to her (Sarah's) "genuine character" and the fact she is such a down to earth person, attracting Moderates and Conservatives. I like to think I share that Servants Heart, Sarah speaks of. How to do that? That is in part why I joined Team Sarah, started this blog spot and my involvement with the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee, I started a Run Sarah Run petition, to help show her she has a large grass roots support.

    As you can see I am a conservative and support Sarah for those reasons. To me she is Ronald Reagan with lipstick. Attracting moderates is fine but we should not ask Sarah to compromise her conservative values, not that she would even if we did. Conservatism makes sense and works when it is consistently applied. If the Republican had stuck with what put them in office in the first place we would not be where we are now. Many people in the Republican Party say we need to be more moderate. If there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans why have two major parties? I do not want our party to be Democrat Lite.

    I guess this can sound simplistic and I guess it is as I am a Simple Man... LOL I sound like that Rock song by Shinedown.
