A Palin Supporter's Cry From The Heart And,Yes,They Did "Win" As Did Pyrrhus
I received the e-letter below from "Voting Female" who is well know (the "Voting female Speaks" blog has been around and prominent for years) as a hugely dedicated Palin supporter and battler for all justice. I have not seen, even at Conservatives4Palin such heartfelt sadness and emotion at Sarah Palin's decision not to run and, although incredibly honored that she would choose my blog to express her despair I am terribly burdened and saddened that I have such poor words of comfort.
Indeed, I have to commence my brief words (and also refer her and the reader to my previous post which sets out why I have stopped blogging) with the words which might on the surface, add to her burden- "yes, they have won".
However, there is a ray of sunshine of in the distance, beyond the black clouds. Firstly, nobody knows God's plan or purpose and what we have all seen in our lives, the mystery of why things may appear so negative to us at a given moment. but which later on turn out to have been totally for the best. In short we see through a glass darkly. Putting that into political examples we have Lincoln being defeated for election to the senate after the Lincoln/Douglas debates or, nearer to to day, Reagan losing his battle with Ford for the GOP nomination at a late stage in life when his career would have seemed over.
Secondly, yes the massive forces opposed to one solitary woman, unparalleled since the Bryan campaign of 1896. appear to have "won". But so did King Pyrrhus whose campaign victory was so costly, "Pyrrhic" that he eventually lost the war. The MSM has won a victory but at the cost of their total credibility and,if and when Sarah chooses to run nothing they say will be taken with any credibility especially as they have dug up every possible bit of muck, true or untrue.
So Voting Female, yes you are right in your descriptions of the forces opposed to the righteous path and you are in the right in your despair. But, and I know it is poorly expressed and I invite others to express it better, I do hope I have pointed out a better future which,once the cloud lifts, we can rededicate ourselves too.
With all kind regards as we look to the future and at Sarah's cheerful countenance in Florida. We may support a chosen candidate in 2012 or write in Sarah if one such does not surface but we must pick ourselves up and fight as Sarah has and will again.
Warm and cordial regards
