Palin: Obama Turning Nation of 'We the People' into 'We the Sheeple'

Sarah Palin says the "fantasy" world President Barack Obama portrayed in his State of the Union address has put the nation on a "dangerous" path.

Observing that the November midterm elections can't come soon enough, the former 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate declared on her Facebook page Wednesday that the president's "fantasy declaration of 'utopia’s-on-its-way' just isn’t efficient."

"It was all confirmation that we HAVE heard it all before – how more government is supposedly the answer. But the extreme hubris and naïveté that emanated from that speech was something new and alarming," she wrote.

The former Alaska governor quoted Ronald Reagan as saying the nine most frightening words in the English language were, "I’m from the government and I’m here to help."

"Well, [Obama's] promise to grow even more unaffordable, unsustainable bureaucracy confirms we need rescuing from government like never before," she continued.

Palin went on to outline what she described as the help "a bloated, bankrupt federal government" has given Americans under the Obama administration.

"In an attempt to 'fix' our healthcare system, government has taken away our health insurance and forced us to buy worse plans we don’t want and can’t afford," she said.

"To 'stimulate' the economy, government blew a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus scheme that sunk us deeper into such a pile of debt that our great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off . . .

"To 'lead' us to energy independence, government throws billions at bankrupt boondoggle green energy gimmicks that conveniently reward campaign donors," she continued. "Meanwhile, the President stymies development of conventional resources that we actually use and he kills a pipeline that’s guaranteed to provide jobs and reliable energy."

Palin said the government, in a supposed bid to create more jobs, has also "created more burdensome regulations and requirements and sat back to watch as a record number of Americans simply quit the workforce and gave up trying to find jobs that government can never create."

Palin also decried what she believes is an effort by the administration to "ram through" amnesty for illegal immigrants, which she said would result in a flood of foreign workers competing with Americans for work.

"We’re obviously on a dangerous path, but 'We the People' don't have to be 'We the Sheeple' and just get shepherded towards a fundamental transformation that’s against America’s will. There’s another way!" she declared.

"This nation can shine again with the elbow grease we as individuals can provide! But we mustn’t let a statist-leaning government dull our dedicated efforts. So pay attention. Get involved. Understand the way words are manipulated by politicians who practice to deceive, so that we can DO something about it."

Palin also said Obama proved that he is immune to irony, by using the phrase 'fairness and equality under the law' as he ended his address.

"This is the same president who has been arbitrarily amending his signature legislation, Obamacare, practically every other day to give breaks to his cronies and leave the rest of us without 'connections' out in the cold," she said.

"I guess some of us are less fair and equal under Obama’s laws.The last thing we need right now is more 'help' from big government. In this mid-term year, we need to send new leadership to D.C. to get government back on our side and off our aching backs.

"Thankfully, November is just around the corner."
