Logic would say that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s closing speech at CPAC 2013 would be the fifth of a five post series. As often happens, events overrode logic. Yesterday morning at the Washington Press Club, the fine Chairman of the Republican Nation Committee, Reince Priebus, delivered a vision for a new Republican brand. Some say the vision is filled with worthy ideas. But Palin said Saturday, “We’re not here to rebrand a party, we’re here to rebuild a country!” So here in the third of five posts is Governor Sarah Palin:

“We’ve come together for a great conversation about the future of our Country.”

“Nearly 8% unemployment [&] .1% economic growth doesn’t begin to tell the story of pain that Americans feel.”

“Never before have our challenges been so big and our leaders so small.”

“[Leadership] also means ending the poisonous practice of treating Americans of different social, ethnic, and religious groups as different electorates to be pandered to with different promises. If we truly believe the words of our other founding document, the Declaration of Independence with its world changing assertion that all men are created equal, then there no Hispanic issues or African American Issues or women’s issues. There are only American issues.”

“If believe in America is more than just a catchy campaign slogan, the we have to believe in America’s exceptionalism and her greatest achievement that no one is guaranteed success but everyone is guaranteed an equal opportunity at success.”

“if we have faith in We the People, if we teach America’s foundation of work ethic and development of our natural resources, if we believe in the charters of freedom that guide us, if we trust in the promise of opportunity that binds us, if we know the Providential hand that made America exceptional and respect the innocent life that He creates, then we will save our movement and then with hard work humility and the grace of our loving God, we will save our Country.”
