Sarah Palin Supports Doug Hoffman

The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches! He needs our help now.

The votes of every member of Congress affect every American, so it’s important for all of us to pay attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York. I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York’s 23rd Congressional district. It’s my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC, donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.

Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a “time for choosing.”

The federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington, D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.

And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.

Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.

Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of “blurring the lines” between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party’s ticket.

Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.

  • Sarah Palin

.

The only problem I have is that this is going to give the democrat the victory. But hopefully this will be the wake up call the GOP needs.

I heard a Hoffman interview on Tuesday and he comes off as a great guy.

  • Never been in politics before

  • Life long entrepreneur

  • Married to the same woman his entire life, 36 years

  • CPA

  • When his children grew up and wanted to move away because of the lack of opportunity, he helped each one of the open up small businesses so they could stay in the district and provide jobs and opportunity for locals.

    I sent him $20 on wednesday…sent Schiff another $20 also.

Doug Hoffman is going to do great. So great in fact that he’ll siphon enough votes from the (liberal) republican to give Bill Owens, the democrat, the victory. But, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. The next time the party Chair will think twice before pushing a republican candidate who acts, thinks and votes like a liberal democrat. Either way we win. Also, I believe that district is about 3-1 republicans over democrats. Since they run every two years they will have a shot at removing the democrat in two more years, after they’ve smartened up.

That was my thought, tho I can’t say Hoffman is completely out yet. He did gain 8% of the votes in 15 days. If the rest of the people who are voting for the republican wake up quick he does stand a chance of winning.
