Washington, D.C. – Today, former Governor of Alaska and former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin closed the three-day conservative summit with a rousing address to an enthusiastic crowd of conservative activists at CPAC 2014 – a celebration of 50 years of the ACU and America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists. 
 
A crowd favorite and conservative icon, Palin said “I love coming back here because there are always so many young people, or as you’re known by the folks across the river, the ObamaCare suckers…Turns our you have the change they were waiting for…you have the fives, the tens, the twenties.”
 
“I look at you and I look out at the year ahead, and I feel good about America.”
 
“Americans know now what the giants of our movement have always told us…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. There is no free birth control. There is not free phone. There is no free doctor visits…There is no free ride.”
 
“This last year something did happen, the awakening began.” She went on to describe the actions of conservatives, such as Senator Ted Cruz’s filibuster. 
 
With a nod to Cruz’s filibuster, she reprised Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham with her own added spice, saying “I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his healthcare scam. I do not like these dirty crooks or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals. I do not like their crony deals, I do not like this Biden man. I do not like ‘Oh yes we can’. I do not like this spending spree, we’re smart, we know there’s nothing free. I don’t like reporters’ smug replies when I complain about their lies. I do not like this kind of hope, and we won’t take it nope, nope, nope.”
 
She encouraged the conservative audience to support the constitutional conservatives that serve in Congress and to send them reinforcements. 
 
About the next election, she challenged the crowd, “You want another sweep? Grab a broom and join us at the party.” 
 
To the women in the room, she said “A Quick word with the sisters…we know better than to fall for that victimization line from the president and his party, but if you have a friend or sister or roommate falling for this hooey, set them straight.”
 
“Don’t let them you use you…that’s not liberation that’s subjugation and this sisterhood fights against that!” She continued, “We fight the mastery that big government would want over us.”
 
“This is a great awakening…the age of Obama is almost over.”
 
Closing, she said “We know America. Not from the top down, but from the heart looking out. We believe in the promise of America.”
 
The Honorable Sarah Palin is the former Governor of Alaska and former Republican Vice Presidential candidate. On December 4, 2006, she was sworn in as the first female and youngest governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket. Under her leadership as governor, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, reformed the state’s employee pension program, and protected Alaska’s natural resources. She created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities, and infrastructure. An internationally sought speaker and conservative leader, Palin is an influential force in the national debate. Her endorsement and support from her political action committee, SarahPAC, remain the gold standard for conservative candidates every election cycle.
