As an Alaskan, I am writing to give all of you some information on Sarah Palin, Senator McCain's choice for VP. As an Alaska voter, I know more than most of you about her and, frankly, I am horrified that he picked her.
The most accurate description of her is red neck. Her husband works in the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay and races snow mobiles. She is a life time member of the NRA and has worked tirelessly to allow indiscriminate hunting of wildlife in Alaska , particularly wolves and bears. She has spent millions of Alaska state dollars on aerial hunting of these predators from helicopters and airplanes. Not all of you may think aerial predator hunting is so bad, but how anyone (other than Alaska wolf-haters of which there are many, most without teeth) could think this use of state funds is appropriate is beyond me. Those dollars could have been spent, for example, on Alaska 's failing school system.We have the lowest rate of high school graduation in the country.
Sara Palin has been a strong supporter of increased use of fossil fuels, yet the McCain campaign has the nerve to say she has "green" policies. The only thing green about Sarah Palin is her lack of experience. She has consistently supported drilling in ANWR, use of coal-burning power plants (as I write this, a new coal plant is being built in her home town of Wasilla ), strip mining, and almost anything else that will exploit the diminishing resources of Alaska and destroy its environment.
Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska , she was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage.The average education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade. Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Sarah Palin in office in the first place. I know what I'm talking about. These people have no concept of the world around them or the serious issues facing the US . Furthermore, they don't care. So long as they can hunt their moose every fall, kill wolves and bears, and drive their snow mobiles and ATVs through every corner of the wilderness, they're happy. I wish I was exaggerating.
Sarah Palin is currently involved in a political corruption scandal. She fired an individual in law enforcement here because she didn't like how he treated one of her relatives during a divorce. The man's performance and ability weren't considered; it was a totally personal firing and is currently under investigation. While the issue isn't close to the scandal of Ted Steven's corruption, it shows that Palin isn't "squeaky clean", and causes me to think there may be more issues that could come to light. Clearly McCain doesn't care.
It is so typical for a socialist to try to destroy somebody's reputation by half-truths or straight lies. First of this forum is not design for a desperate Obama campaign supporters. It is a forum to discuss investment ideas that relate to TBSI. Secondly, you sound like a weasel that likes to beat up on weaker gender. You hate the idea that this woman has actually accomplished more in last 8 years, then you ever will in your entire life. AND, she did it while giving birth to FIVE children, and raising them. You say, that Alaska is full of rednecks. Well, this is one good looking redneck, and probably a reason why America loves this woman so much. She is REAL, she is not a phony like oops Barack Hussein Osama ... oops ...Obama (or you), and she can probably whip your sorry ass any time of a day or night. Obama and his people (i.e. YOU) KNOW, that Sarah Palin is a MAJOR problem for them. They are afraid of her, and decided to use any means (like any good commies would) to destroy this woman. You will NOT succeed. She will berry you, without even braking a sweat. Good day.
