The only way to defeat the crony capitalism and corporate welfare infesting both parties is "sudden and relentless reform," former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said last night in Glenn Beck's Defending the Republic event in St. Louis, Missouri, Mark Schlinkmann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Gov. Palin received standing ovations from the crowd of over 5,000.
Her 50-minute speech focused on over-spending; government picking winners and losers; pay-to-play; using stimulus funds to benefit donors; and bailouts for big business and Wall Street with the middle class paying the bill for it all. Following her speech, Gov. Palin took questions from the listeners of KFTK-FM, which sponsored her appearance.
While some in the audience were disappointed in Gov. Palin's decision to not run for President in the 2012 election, they supported her decision. Some are not supporting another candidate unless she endorses one. Many held out hope that she would run in 2016 or 2020.
