Leaders

 
Sarah Palin
has become a star in the conservative movement. A fiscal conservative and former Governor of Alaska and a candidate for Vice President in 2008.
 
On July 3rd she stunned the political establishment, fueling speculation about why she is leaving office with 18 months left in her first term and whether her future will include a run for the presidency.
 
Palin offered few clues about her ambitions but said she arrived at her decision in part to protect her family, which has faced withering criticism and occasional mockery, and to escape ethics probes that have drained her family's finances and hampered her ability to govern. She said leaving office is in the best interest of the state and will allow her to more effectively advocate for issues of importance to her, including energy independence and national security.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Michele Bachmann
U.S. Representative Minnesota
 
Bachman burst on the scene 10 days ago when she asked the American People to meet her on the steps of the capital to protest the House Health Care Bill. Over 20,000 from all over the Country showed up on November 5th in response to her plea. She has become an overnight sensation.
 
Rep. Michele Bachmann stood alone at a podium at the foot of the Capitol Thursday, blowing kisses and waving to the fawning crowd of thousands she had assembled.
 
The tea party rally against a Democratic-written health care bill was over, and the other lawmakers had cleared the stage. But the love affair between Bachmann and her fans was reaching its apex.
Brushing off an aide’s reminder to go inside and vote, the fiery Minnesotan with the fierce blue eyes descended toward a crowd penned in by the stone walls of the Capitol lawn. She leaned across the barrier to grasp hands, autograph signs, kiss cheeks. This was her moment. These were her people.  Read More.....

"If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed
which is not their government. The whole system of
American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless
citizens perform their duties there, such a system of
government is doomed to failure."
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the USA.
