Palin Closes Out CPAC Slamming Obama Economics: “His Plan Isn’t winning the Future, It’s Losing the Country”
She identified the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a key culprit in destruction of jobs in America. Instead of developing America’s own homegrown resources, the EPA has put the country in a position where it must rely upon dubious foreign sources, she said. And the EPA makes it difficult for businesses trying to expand although, Palin noted wryly, the EPA never seems to block the construction of new government buildings in Washington D.C.
“Instead of calling Washington D.C. a swamp, call it a wetland,” she said. That would be one way to slow the march of government, she suggested.
Palin also took aim at “crony capitalism,” which she said, was growing the size of government at the expense of average Americans.
“The politicians arrive as men and women (in Washington D.C.) and they become plutocrats. And they spread the wealth around to their pals.”
Palin also reminded audience members that CPAC was initiated by conservative activists who were out to remake the Republican Party. Reagan called for “bold colors, not pale pastels,” she said.
There is a certain paradox at work in the current political cycle, Palin said. “The conservative movement has never been stronger or brighter, yet the federal government has never cast a bigger shadow.”
The Tea Party has momentum because “the American people have woken up” to the dangers of big government, she said.
If the country continues on a path where policy makers attempt to tax and spend their way into prosperity, the future of America will look more like the old world rather than the new world.
“That’s the dream of the far Left, not the American dream,” she said.
Never before in American history has there ever been such a division between how the president views the “state of the union” and how average Americans view the “state of the union,” she said.
Unlike President Obama, Republicans are looking to free markets and to long-standing constitutional principles, she said.
“His plan isn’t winning the future, it’s losing the country.”
Я сейчас ухожу, поэтому я не пересказываю речь Пейлин на CPAC в субботу, она закрывала конференцию, там было много студентов, они ее встречали овацией, вообще ей оказали восторженный прием.
Если кто интересуется, я переведу.
