Sarah Palin is not a political elitist, she was not destined to be successful in politics because of personal wealth or political kingmakers, but she was successful due to a personal drive to succeed, and Providence. Sarah Palin is what Americans have been longing for, a politician who is not a politician, but just a regular American who cares about the citizens, in a sense, a modern version of George Washington or Davy Crockett.
While reading the passages of Sarah Palin's teenage years in Alaska, it reminds me of living in Upstate New York, and even a few personal traits. Such as a love for politics at a young age, being a good athlete while not the best, and a deep admiration for C.S. Lewis. I was not reading the words of a person destined to succeed, but of the words of the average small town American who believed she could succeed.
From the interesting stories of hunting Moose to running for elected office in Wasilla, this book offers more detailed insight of a brilliant American, of whom we suspected of brilliance with little insight. We also see hints of future political runs, whether it indicates a run for United States Senate or President of the United States, it appears her campaign would be run with professionalism, the McCain campaign lacked at times.
Before reading this book, I never understood the importance of Alaska's oil reserves as Sarah Palin does, or even her admiration with Facebook as a indication of Capitalistic greatness and blessings we thrive in as Americans. Though, Alaska is discussed in great detail, Palin also refers to the importance of the tenth amendment in the United States Constitution, something of great importance during this time of federal encroachment on the various states.
In conclusion, this one of the greatest books I have ever read. While not has sophisticated as a recent book, I read of George Washington, and not as simple as Glenn Beck's Common Sense, Going Rogue will offer a personal insight into one of the most interesting Conservative intellectuals and leaders of the Conservative movement, and I believe the foundation for future political accomplishments and ambitions.
Purchase this wonderful book, you will not regret it. It made one hell of a Christmas present for this Palin fan, it could also serve as one hell of a wakeup call for Independents who are unsure of Sarah Palin, and have not conducted personal research beyond the scope of media reporting, which is biased and rooting against one of the greatest political gifts we have encountered in three decades.
