Well if she has the Viking vote then maybe
A little admission of guilt here to start things off. I spent all last week in Disney World. I know that takes me down a few pegs but being there actually made me realize where politicians come from. They don’t have home states, they are actually animatronic robots created by Disney, how else can you explain their robotic movements and choreographed, nonstop one liners?
Having come to that realization it was heartening to listen to Sarah Palin’s address to the Republican convention last week. For the first time I actually felt like I was looking at some one who hasn’t sat through the endless hours or PR training politicians go through to learn how to become robots. Her very movements said “I actually am a regular person, just smart and driven.” Perhaps Juan McCain isn’t as ignorant as I thought.
But before I join the conservative course line in singing “I have a friend in Palin” I just have to point out a few things. #1 Did anyone hear anything about illegal immigration all last week? Other then Juan saying his line about being all God’s children there wasn’t a hint at national sovereignty. No mention of the fact that there is HUMAN SMUGLING going on in my home town. That’s right it’s 2008 in America and there are people smuggling people and holding them for ransom right here in our own nation. Did anyone talk about the burden on our welfare system millions of illegals create? Sure they talked about cutting taxes but what about cutting spending?
#2 Lines like this drive me crazy “we’ll pursue a pro-growth agenda” is there anyone out there that is pursuing an anti-growth agenda? Not that they would say of course. But then she follows it up with this “focused on creating jobs” News flash, it’s not the governments responsibility to create jobs. It’s the government’s job to stay the heck out of the way so I can create jobs.
#3 When talking about energy policy she sights her experience in Alaska and said “When oil and gas prices went up dramatically, and filled up the state treasury, I sent a large share of that revenue right back where it belonged -- directly to the people of Alaska.” Last time I checked that’s income redistribution, much like the liberals want to do, but I guess that kind of redistribution is ok if a Republican does it right? That money doest belong to every Alaskan, if people are like they are in Arizona there are dead beats there who try as hard as they can not to work, how do they have any stake in what others have produced?
Look I could go on for ever like this. Just read her article I have linked and decide for yourself. From my perspective it is just a light, born charismatic christen version of the hell fire and damnation taught at the church of Obama.
