    Sorry, but Palin wasn't really "right", if you mean correct on the Revere story.

    Revere's mission was to ride to Lexington to warn Sam Adams and John Hancock that the regulars were on their way, and warn militia units along the way, ending up in Concord. He succeeded in his task at Lexington, but was captured before he got to Concord. He was released but his horse was taken and that ended the famous "ride." (Others reached Concord with the warning.)

    (Edited) Revere did tell his captors that he had aroused the countryside and that 500 militia would be out (a severe security breach, of course), but that certainly was not part of his mission, which was to warn the militia, not the regulars. He may have been trying to frighten the officers, a typical civilian ploy which no professional military officer would have accepted at face value.

    From the article: Here's a more elaborate telling by a historian, which spells it out rather clearly.

    Revere and Dawes then headed for Concord and came across Doctor Prescott who then joined them. They decided to alarm every house along the way.

    Just outside of the town of Lincoln, they were confronted by 4 Regulars at another road block. They tried unsuccessfully to run their horses through them. Prescott, who was familiar with the terrain, jumped a stone wall and escaped. Revere and Dawes tried to escape and shortly into the chase they were confronted by 6 more regulars on horseback. Revere was surrounded and taken prisoner. Dawes got away as they were taking Revere into custody.

    The British officers began to interrogate Revere, whereupon Revere astonished his captors by telling them more than they even knew about their own mission. (HA!) He also told them that he had been warning the countryside of the British plan and that their lives were at risk if they remained in the vicinity of Lexington because there would soon be 500 men there ready to fight. Revere, of course, was bluffing.

    The Regulars had Revere remount his horse and they headed toward Lexington Green, when suddenly, they heard a gunshot! Revere told the British officer that the shot was a signal "to alarm the country!". Now the British troops were getting very nervous ....

    A few minutes later, they were all startled to hear the heavy crash of an entire volley of musketry from the direction of Lexington's meeting house and then the Lexington town bell began clanging rapidly! Jonathan Loring, a Lexington resident captured earlier, turned to his captors and shouted "The bell's a' ringing! The town's alarmed, and you're all dead men!"

    The British officers then talked urgently among themselves and decided to release their captives so as they would not slow their retreat.

    Naw, she was right dude. You're thinking of the poem, Paul Revere's Ride.

    Does it really matter just how accurate her statement was? Before she said anything about it all most no Americans really knew the true story of Paul Revere's ride. Did Paul Revere tell the British about the armed American revolutionaries? Yep, it happened, but it was not part of his mission. I just wonder how close you, or I, could have got to the real story? I know I would have messed it up!

    at this point it doesn't really matter what she says as the media is going to spin it in a way to try and bring her down... there was nothing in the email dump but still they have focused on a few minor things that amount to nothing

    Only if they would look at what she accomplished as Governor for her short term. One of the best I have ever seen and I heard all the local stories when they occurred.

    You know what is funny is that people in her own party in Alaska are going after her... she asked her attorney general to "do his job" prosecute anyone if there was corruption "regardless of party affiliation", and to "unleash hell" on them

    Of the four candidates running for the office of President and Vice President, Sarah Palin was the only qualified person on the slate. Historically, Senators make LOUSEY Presidents. The present occupant of OUR property at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. proves my point.

    The republican good ole boy network up here hated Palin, she went after them and sent a bunch of the crooks off into political obscurity or to the big house. The dems & lefty watermellon greenie goofballs never liked her, but I did hear that old girl Shawnna Moore say she misses Sarah being in charge bad now. At least Palin had that Wally Hickel sense of what best serves Alaska always on her mind. Parnell is just biding his time as gov until he gets his oil executive position. San FRan owned anch paper hates palin too, what else is new.

    Bottomline, the average everyday Alaska wishes she was back in charge, we actually felt good about our govt when Sarah was running the show.

    You need to talk to everyday Alaskans, not anch city dems, or big oil crooked repubs (we have lots of them here), or people she brought the heat down on; she sure did that.

    I've watched her since we moved here in early 90's and she's for real and got the guts to do what needs to be done. Main thing is she always demanded cost efficient good govt. Dang, near every conservative person in our community always is saying how much better the state was going when she was gov. OLd Parnell, wanted to give the oil companies 10 billion back in tax relief, at todays high prices. Palin did make them pay Alaska what they are paying the Arabs for their oil, and the state put it in the bank for the future. Now Parnell is just spending the state dry, waiting for his big oil exec job soon as his term is done.

    Palin cut local prop taxes when she was on the board, was a very efffective mayor, and when ole frank murkowski tried setting here up, she quit the job, said too much corruption for her and then refused to talk bad about the crooked repubs. Indictments came down a few weeks later. Palin then beat murkowski, (sitting gov) 51% to 19% in primary. Alaskans knew how honest Palin was, then she was elected in fall.

    Not many politicals I would ever trust, but I'll have faith in Palin. Have been watching her up close since early 90's, no joke. Heck Palin is the only political that funded wolf control and said let the I wanna kiss the wolves people be damned.

    Tell you something else, she remembers everybody's names. I've had her yell at me in parking lots years back in wasilla to say hello and wasn't election time either. I've seen her in our rural community covered from head to toe with mud on 4 wheeler and she's the only governor who made a point to visit our Indians out the village, all others too big feelin. Boy, I could tell ya some real stories from over the years. Take my word, she's as down to earth and common as anybody on here and she really does believe in the 2nd amendment & hunting & fishing and all the things we hold dear. Dang, it sets me off seeing what the dem scum have done to that good woman.

    Zhurh, there are those who "know" and there are those who have had their minds poluted with left wing garbage that has been spewed about her for years now. Its all part of the george soros attack machine. Sarah has my support no matter what her plans are. No women has EVER had to endure the personal attacks and just plain down right mean and hatefull attacks that she has. And what has she done? She got up, brushed herself off and stood tall against the strongest most well funded attack machine in the world. She gets my vote as a person, as a patriot, and as our president if she decides to run.
