Palin Says Nation Should Rededicate Itself To God

Sarah Palin says the United States should rededicate itself to seeking God's will, arguing a humble spirit could help leaders get more answers on issues such as health care, energy and national security.

The 2008 Republican candidate for vice president said in a video released Friday by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association it's important for leaders to acknowledge they don't have all the answers. She said the country will be safer, more prosperous and healthier if the nation seeks God's protection and blessing.

Palin traveled to North Carolina two weeks ago as part of her book tour and visited Billy Graham at his home in western North Carolina. The aging evangelist has been a counsel to presidents and politicians for decades.

    Yes, Marie, she is a fine one to talk. Personally, I would like to hear more of what she has to say.

    Marie, other than what you read in the media do you have any proof she allowed them to play house? Unless you were there it's like everything else "he said, she said". Unless you see it or hear it for yourself don't believe everything you read. And certainly don't hold something against her that you don't know as factual. Wow, anything to make someone look like crap for speaking out about God.

    She's a fine one to talk about God, after allowing her teenage daughter and her boyfriend to play house together.She should practice what she's preaching to others.

    Jamie16, cj was just a typical left wing fool that is doing his parties work of putting down woman every chance they get. You know, she lies, yet Obama is yet to tell the truth about anything. Obama has not even proven he is a christian let alone a good one. Why, one of his first bills was to fund abortion in other countries...does that sound like cj knows what he is talking about or does it sound like the same left hate club? Its sort of like T's comment, they claim to be republican yet they are liberal by all comments they make. Cj maynot respond since they just mixed up a big pitcher of koolaid.....

    @cj: Oops...now I see your rant. I haven't heard about all of these "lies." You must've gotten all that from the liberal media.

    @CJ: What has Sarah Palin LIED about?

    I honestly have some mixed thoughts about this, both good and bad. I see different points. Yes, there needs to be more people turning to God(I actually expect it would lead to a safer America), but also there needs to be more jobs created as well. Better economy = safer America

    To OSOC, just to clarify a couple of points, no, I do not use drugs or alcolhol. Secondly, I expose the facts on corruption as deemed necessary since our new media keeps you sheltered from the truth. Do not tell me you are republican as this says you are conservative. I am a conservative democrat. If what I posted bothered you, then you belong with the liberals who are trying to destroy the morality of this nation. Anything does not go. The information posted in my posts are a conservative veiwpoint or you are not paying attention.

    I think it is very admirable for Ms. Palin to speak the truth. God, is what is lacking in our nation today. If we would put God first in all we do, then the majority of things would naturally be brought back in balance, even though evil will remain in the world until the Lord returns. I pray that God would show her favor because of her faith. God Bless you Ms. Palin and your family.

    I am republican, but time and time again you pass judgements on many people, yet you are a christian. Sorry, but I call this hypocritical. I'll bet your self righteous self drinks a fifth on sat.night, but in church sunday talking about people. BTW, we can send 1 million troops to Afghanistan, but the majority of the enemy is in Pakistan. Now, if we invade our ally, I am all for an increase in military force. BTW, I voted straight republican, but your feelings are MUCH different than mine. You might try valium, as you surely need it.
