Who is Sarah Palin?

The Alaskan Independence Party is a political party in the U.S. state of Alaska that advocates an in-state referendum which includes the option of Alaska becoming an independent country.

The party also advocates positions similar to those of the Constitution Party and Libertarian Party, supporting gun rights, privatization, home schooling, and limited government.

It has been alleged that some of its members in the past have also proposed that the state explore the possibility of joining Canada. Some other members have expressed opposition to joining Canada in its present form but are open to the possibility of joining an independent Western Canadian province or territory including the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

On September 2, 2008, reports surfaced that according to the Alaska Division of Elections Todd Palin had registered as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party in 1995. He remained registered with the party until 2002.

Sarah Palin, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, attended the 2006 party convention as a Republican candidate for Governor of Alaska. In 2007, after winning her election, Sarah Palin delivered a taped welcome message for the party’s convention.

In 1994, both Todd and Sarah Palin attended the party convention, which was held in their hometown of Wasilla. At the time, Sarah Palin was a sitting city councilmember of Wasilla.

Apart from the fact that Sarah Palin declares that she wants to take the government back, exactly what is her platform? She has had more than enough time to effectively put together a plan of action. Perhaps Mrs. Palin has seen how gullible the citizens of these United States are and have decided to siege the moment and capitalize on her fame.

Let’s evaluate the emergence of Sarah Palin. Mrs. Palin was virtually an unknown candidate prior to the 2008 presidential election, whose own party didn’t endorse her. Subsequently, when she was questioned more in depth about immediate issues concerning the United States and our involvement with other countries, she appeared “as a deer caught in the headlines without an escape route.” However, it was decided that she could bring in the women’s vote which she delivered on.

Beyond the repeated catch phrase “we’re going to take our government back!” Why haven’t the reporters press her for specific solutions too the many problems that we now face and not except generalities? In a succinct statement, tell the rest of the citizens exactly where would she take them and why?

I imagine it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of something new but when the dust settles, will that candidate be an asset or liability to the rest of the country? Sarah Palin has been front and center long enough to have a clearly defined platform, but do you know at least one thing that she would do to turn the state of affairs around and put this country back on the right track?

I’m neither for or against Mrs. Palin as I don’t know enough about her to form an intelligent opinion. My concern is whether she would jump ship when the going gets tough, as she did while serving as governor of Alaska. Will Mrs. Palin represent strength or weakness too the rest of the world powers?

I suppose in the coming weeks and months to come, all these questions I’ve ask and many yet to be ask will be addressed. I pray that Mrs. Palin will know exactly how far Russia is from Alaska and its’ relationship and intentions in respect to this country.
