“Sara isa strong leader, and managed to push through a LNG pipeline
contract that the men had been talking about for 20 years without action and
she has only been Governor for 2 years.... She has given the good old boys a
run for their money, in a state where politics are pretty rough.... She has
cut spending, and believes that the PEOPLE own the resources and not the
government... remember Alaska has no income tax, and Alaskans actually get paid to live
there.... this year they will get about $3300 apiece to compensate for gas prices and
their usual share of government oil revenue... She is smart, practical and
We need a government that starts taking care of us by not taking our money and sharing it with everyone. Stops sending it to countries that hate us. How about we demand from our politicians to do what they promise us that gest them to Washington. We need to know when they vote against the very thing they promise us they wouldn’t do. Why aren't we kept aware of the promises that are broken during their years that we paid them to represent us. When are we going to hold politicians accountable.”

“"We need a government that starts taking care of us by not taking our money and sharing it with everyone." Isn't that what you are praising Palin for doing?
All the people in Alaska own the resources, not just those with deeds on the land? And the government gives this compensation money to all Alaskans equally?
So the people own the means of production and the wealth generated is distributed equally among them?
Maybe she has learned something living so close to Russia.
Also, if Palin is so good at managing the resources of Alaska, so much so that each person gets paid to live there -- Can Alaska give back the billions of dollars the federal government gives to them each year?”
