There's no democratic primary in 2012 (certainly not a contested one). That means in states that allow you to declare a party at the last minute you'll see tons of dems crossing over to vote for Palin.

You know what the dems fear in 2012? A weak economy and Mitt Romney running against them.

:lol: Ah, Dems acting with the Machiavellian efficiency of the GOP.

Palin most certainly is a social conservative, but not necessarily a fiscal conservative. What we need are fiscal conservatives.

Every moment she's bleating about abortion is a moment she could be talking about specific examples of how she could fix the financial hole the US has been run into - by both parties, one of which she's a member. Not just coverall lip service of "smaller government" but dollars and cents facts and figures.

I know one thing is certain - she ran AK just fine. Even let the oil profit checks get to their residents. Can you imagine if MA got checks from oil profits??? :lol: They'd be vaporized before they made it past the state house! Excuses for where they went would be ramant -- same excuses used right this second for raising every single state fee & tax.

Eventually people are going to get sick & tired of being bled dry while deadbeats get a free ride. If you want an example of Dems in power, look no further than MA (or NY). If they keep it up, there won't be a Democratic party for us to worry about.

You realize the state owning a resource and distributing checks from the revenues is the textbook definition of socialism.

You need a new textbook, the one your using has blinders on it.

I don't think Sarah Palin knows what Sarah Palin wants. Just like her college education that took several tries and several institutions before she figured it out, I suspect she'll do the same with her "career" until 2012 gets a bit closer. Watch for a talk show next.

Erik, I fear that you give the American people too much credit for rational thought. In advertising, they say, it doesn't matter whether people love your ad or hate your ad, what's important is that they notice it. So no matter how ignorant and ill-informed the words that come from her mouth, as long as people notice that she is talking, she is helping the Republican party.

I honestly don't think she could do any worse than Obama has. In all honesty, I think she would be MUCH better for the country than HE has.

Socialism: a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

That's pretty much what the Alaska Permanent fund is. They overtax the corporations who make the money off of the oil (under the premise that the oil is owned by the community as a whole) and distribute it equally amongst all the citizens. It's classic wealth re-distribution.

Palin may be a social conservative but if you think she's a fiscal conservative you're deluding yourself.

Anyway, how's it going with the jobs you gave to India, Eric? Where's the jobs for America? Where's the energy independance? Where's the decision on Afghanistan? Oh, I guess American soldiers can wait while Obama disarms the country and works on forcing me to buy health insurance.



Wearing my moderator hat, perhaps you would remove the image with the profanity in it.

She's doing exactly what she wants to do. She's keeping herself in the lime light and love her or hate her she's still there. If she runs she can beat the O-man. Its a case of the lesser of two evils,and now the american public knows what Obama's about. :) ;)

You think this woman is your savior and cares about you? Think again --
Many of the unhappy people stood in the rain all day, bought the book from Borders and clutched their wristbands for their opportunity to meet Palin.

"We bought two books from Borders to have our receipt and our wristband to get it signed tonight," said one woman. "My books are going back to Borders tomorrow."

"We gave up our entire workday, stayed in the cold. My kids were crying," said one man. "They went home with my wife. She was out here in the freezing cold all day. I feel like I don't want to support Sarah."

For those who did get to meet Palin, no personal signatures or pictures were allowed. Those who didn't get their books signed went home only with a piece of paper with Palin's signature.

It doesn't matter what I think, what is important here is that you consider her a threat and show it by constantly running her down as a nobody. Oprah had her highest ratings in two years having the "mindless bimbo" on her show. Keep up the hatchet jobs and you may help make her our next President judging from the last go around.
