For all sad words of tongue and pen,
The saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’
– John Greenleaf Whittier

Here were the final Gallup #s for the Governor before she announced at least at this moment that she wasn’t running (multiply the “strongly favorable + favorable” percentage by the percentage that recognize the Republican and go to “export full trends” to find the Governor’s final numbers)
Governor Palin: 65%
Mitt “peacetime” Romney: 60%
Newt Gingrich: 56%
Rick Perry: 50%
Michele Bachmann: 50%
Herman Cain: 47%
Ron Paul: 41%
Rick Santorum: 33%
Jon Huntsman: 23%
Keep in mind too that over 80% of all GOP/GOP-leaning indies recognize Palin, Romney, Perry, Bachmann, and Gingrich. So Palin’s advantage isn’t due to the fact that she had higher name recognition. Palin and Cain were the two Republicans who could say their “strongly favorable” rating among all GOP/GOP-leaning indies was over 20%.
Both she and Mike Huckabee have been in very similar positions now and they each demurred.
Coincidentally, they have both seemed to be re-learning much having to do with the need to defend American Sovereignties. Very probably, they have been learning a great deal too about the impending insolvency bubble explosion and the aggression against a Sovereign and free United States of America carried out by globalist Marxofascists and the central banking complex which feeds them.
Was the challenge too threatening for each?
Who would want to be U.S. President under such a well nurtured if artificially concocted, bottom-up revolution and a massively concerted, multi-pronged attack from powerful quarters within America and around the entire world, in such dire conditions of “5th Generation Warfare?”
We have previously called that the “failed state strategy” being imposed upon our pivotally important nation, as it would become “too big to fail” and offered a bailout with strings of suzerainty to global empire.
Who could face up to it and effectively defend both our Popular Sovereignty and our national sovereignty?
