We’ve been waiting for her response, now here it is. In an excellent post from her Facebook page the governor makes it clear how this is not the end of the fight, but the beginning.

Out-of-touch Congress Sounds Our Clarion Call to Take a Stand

We’ve been reminded many times that elections have consequences. Yesterday we saw the consequence of voting for those who believe in “fundamentally transforming” America whether we want it or not. Yesterday they voted. In November, we get to vote. We won’t forget what we saw yesterday. Congress passed a bill while Americans said “no,” and thousands of everyday citizens even surrounded the Capitol Building to beg them not to do it. Has there ever been a more obvious exhibition of a detached and imperious government?

In the weeks to come, we can expect them to try to change the subject, but we won’t forget. Don’t let them move on to further “transformational” steps while forgetting what Congress just did against the will of the people. Though Obamacare will inflict billions in new taxes on individuals and employers, at least it creates some jobs: the IRS might have to hire as many as 16,000 new employees to enforce all the new taxes and penalties the bill calls for! And that doesn’t include all the other government jobs from the 159 new agencies, panels, commissions and departments this bill will create. As the private sector shrinks, we can count on government to keep growing along with the deficits needed to keep it all afloat. (Is this the kind of “change” Americans asked for?)…

This is just the beginning of our efforts to take back our country. Consider yesterday’s vote a clarion call and a spur to action. We will not let America sink into further debt without a fight. We will not abandon the American dream to government dependency, fewer freedoms and less opportunity. Change is made at the ballot box. If we work together, we can renew our optimistic pioneering spirit, revive our economy, and restore constitutional limits.

Stand tall, America. November is coming!

Obviously, do read the whole thing.

    What a breath of genuine fresh air, truth, and might I add, HOPE Sarah Palin is. A column may be temporary job. But, she’s getting ready for her real job: POTUS!

    Quite the opposite of that “Paraffin Witch, with a capital “b,”as Karen H at gemoftheocean refers to her. “Light a match next to her face and it would melt.” No moral core there!

    Well, it’s the morning after the rape of our Constitution. Last time I checked, NO
    still meant NO! Despite what our Congresscritters believe, yelling “Surprise!”
    before sex doesn’t make it “surprise sex”………. it just makes you a douche bag who
    yells out “Surprise!” before you commit rape. Exit question…………are we now
    *finally* the country that Michelle can be proud of?????
