Anyone knows how to fight the establishment it is Governor Sarah Palin she took on Alaska's political machine at one.
She's been -- force the Republican Party since John McCain made her his running mate in August 2008.
And she joins me now governor great to -- our thanks very much so much David and we were just talk about we both kind of like the idea being a rebel.
Nothing wrong with that and in the well and slice of this -- not to -- -- -- a -- exactly you went -- against the -- establishment they were we just for those who don't know they were entrenched.
There was lot of corruption there -- a lot of payoffs kickbacks etc.
You decide to break up the machine and you one is is you get the feeling that that same kind of anti establishment mode has to be put in -- now with regard to Republicans.
I do it and maybe not in is such a dramatic way that -- up their Alaska -- guys in at a going to prison but.
That establishment those who would embrace the status quo.
Of some of the policies.
And the debt in currents in the growth of government.
That will creep it this bankruptcy.
And that has got to be five and -- big David we need sudden and relentless reform we tell me just kind of going on to get along and me.
And sort of managing what the problems are we need to.
To stop and we need something new something big it will help the psyche of this nation it will help allow certainty in our businesses.
And it -- I allow Americans American families to say okay I get it now I believe -- we're gonna become exceptional again.
Well and you need backbone -- a lot of backbone frankly that's why -- -- targeted Steve Forbes the other -- that's why he was back in repairing he thought a good strong Texan.
Is what's needed to fight -- -- Because they're not that status quo will not let go on their own.
They're gonna be dragged kicking and screaming.
From their status quo.
And you know why that is.
The -- because those within that status quo that that kind of establishment both sides of the -- they're doing just fine they're pretty content you know they've got there's they've got their titles their powers -- nameplate on on the door.
And they get -- dole out some favors and -- That if you know that bodes before they air it desire right thing to not really shaken up where -- the American people.
We have no choice we have to see it shaken up in order to get our economy back on the right track we can't put up.
With the crony capitalism we can't put up with that.
Permanent political class that got us into this mass and they really don't seem to have a desire to get -- how does that political class the permanent political class now have control of the Republican Party.
-- say both sides of the EI a lot obviously.
Too many folks are just believing.
That we can manage at a bit of -- decline of America where's most Americans at least that people who might small world were all same.
We don't have this settle for that.
We -- set aside our founder status -- -- something exceptional something different based on Freeman free markets.
Let's get back to those constitutional principles are charters of liberty that lead up the blueprint for a.
Who has a look at out at the landscape.
Who has the backbone.
To do that to stand up to -- the status quo that is not gonna like go -- Yeah the -- -- I usually -- faith that a candidate willing to put themselves.
Up to -- -- in the name of service out in near Reno they're putting themselves to serve.
They usually have the backbone it's the people that they surround themselves with its kind of these bullying campaign.
Pundits and experts and advisors who they themselves would never -- could never even run for dog catcher but they want to tell the candidate.
What they should say how to spin themselves into something that.
May -- it at a politician.
Would be perceived as being is sellable.
If the candidates can just have that stiff backbone if they can just be themselves and stay true to their convictions and not spend that their positions their record.
In to something that it is not Hollywood so respect and -- Ronald Reagan.
I think of that famous speech tear down this wall the guy wrote that speech Peter Robinson.
Who's now out at the Hoover institution in California.
He said that all of those people would surrounded -- so please don't do what Mr.
President we can't afford to upset -- relationship we're very delicate stage of negotiation with the Russians he can't.
He can't do it.
He said the heck would you guys aren't gonna do what it feels right this is the time and he went ahead and didn't really change the world.
It was the right thing to do and that is why -- these candidates it especially whomever it is who will face Barack Obama in the general election cannot allow the people around them -- To make them hesitate to call Barack Obama out on his.
On his record on his associations.
On the -- -- that have -- to his thinking.
To him thinking that the socialists these -- policies that we can continue those and that they'll be okay the candidate has got to be -- -- That they will kinda and -- the advice of those whom are getting paid to give them advice and just.
Asked the questions debate Barack Obama on the things that we want them to content.
-- Republicans have always had a device like this and I'm I'm gonna mention some names and I want you to fill in the blank at the end we had Rockefeller.
We had Gerry Ford and Reagan.
And now we have Mitt Romney and who.
Well we're gonna find that out that -- it.
The competition is good for everybody else to find out who it will be who can best.
Contrast themselves and their good ideas on how to get the economy back on the right track.
Against Barack Obama's failed policies it.
It's the process is rough and tumble it's it's it's pretty -- Let's say -- I know I know you don't like to speak -- of Republicans you'll Reagan message but is it fair to put Mitt Romney in that sort of Rockefeller.
Gerry Ford can't because that's the way -- -- Well remember Reagan's eleventh commandment he still took on sitting.
Republican did 76 he did so you know I know peace it what he meant by saying don't speak ill of a Republican but.
You don't put your dukes up in battle it out and it it that it -- arena of ideas and they'll do that.
Eight sometimes though they need to be changed I mean is it his insistence on.
On this part of -- care that looks a lot like obamacare his.
His you talking about minimum wage now we need more of that we need index animate some of those things just absolutely need beach.
He and his his past thinking on cap and trade hopefully his thinking -- cap and tax -- has has really evolved.
When it comes to Romney care to you don't want to he would do just very candidly just say.
Screwed up wish I would have done that to the middle of NASA to enough -- look at Massachusetts is facing now increase costs of health care.
Fewer services going to be provided -- with -- obamacare if he would just say.
I should have mandated such as being on to the people who wanted a patient centered market based solution to help.
-- well governor I I'm old enough -- not but I -- to remember 1976.
And when Jerry Ford lost the election to Jimmy Carter.
And there were a lot of people actually went to Republican headquarters in Washington DC at that time into all these rate unites who -- -- spoken which precinct you really for all right.
They had to wait for years and eventually of course Reagan came in -- Is this a situation where we're gonna have to wait for Chris Christie or we're gonna have to wait for Paul Ryan or whomever to come -- and shake things up.
Now we cannot afford to wait and that is why the candidates in the field today have got to step up their game they have got to start concentrating on the main thing the main thing as.
Tell us what your solutions are candidates who we know who his best to come up against Barack Obama's -- policies.
Us that you understand that debt is undermining the value of our dollar tell us that you understand that.
That -- bomb is manipulating the domestic supply of energy and we're gonna be.
-- to foreign countries and their sources of energy we will not be secure prosperous -- can keep going on the -- Tell us that you understand that and then better yet tell us what you're gonna do about it if they concentrate on that main -- then I'm.
Yet no we don't have to wait and David we cannot afford to wait we we will be a bankrupt company country we will be add much less secure country if we were to have to wait.
Four more years of the.
This should step up your game I know you're big on somebody who stepped up his game recently Lynn you're idling your lends any person -- -- I have that's that's the better tell anyway New York -- includes Alaska doesn't have an MBA from well all of a sudden our team -- the next.
But you'll love this guy I do I didn't have -- keeps -- -- An -- and a man.
I think to an all Americans story worked so it is sort of underdog you know but -- -- -- little -- It and just you know erased all the stuff out there on the periphery in his I would initially had a -- brother's couch a couple of weeks ago -- all and now look where he has man he has he's put his -- to great use the American dream is alive and well right -- some people are trying to squash it.
Governor great to see -- thank you for spending so much time with us over these past few years they appreciate you are -- -- and -- all the best to you we can't -- keep hearing your voice thanks a -- -- -- -- -- the energy.
