FAILIN' PALIN UPDATED
Here is a list of over 60 items about Sarah Palin that should be undesirable to a conservative, Christian constitutionalist. Some are more important than others. I’m not claiming that every item is a disqualification, but they are all things to consider in a candidate for high office.
BIG GOV'T SOCIALISM
4. The city didn’t get clear title to the property and had to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars untangling the snafu.
7. Failed to keep promises to cut spending.8. Palin hired a lobbyist while mayor of Wasilla, to secure $27m funding for a population of 9,000, the kind of spending McCain has vowed to veto. Small town big-spending. What would she do in Washington?
9. When she took over as mayor, Wasilla was not in debt. She left it $22 million in the hole.
10. She supported vouchers for alleged educational choice. That sounds good, but gov’t never gives away money without strings attached. Vouchers simply give the gov’t control over private, Christian, and home schools. Better they allow citizens to keep more of their own income to pay for their own educational choices, or offer tax credits.
2. "The Governor first issued a blanket denial (of above firing) but now she's had to back down and that's a problem," said French. "She has a credibility problem," he said.
3. Her husband has refused to respond to his subpoena in the case even though doing so is a crime in Alaska.
4. Previously accused of personal motives in temporarily firing Wasilla librarian who refused to ban books.
5. Also fired the Wasilla police chief, partly because he wanted to close bars early due to a rash of drunk driving accidents. Bars were among Palin’s largest contributors.
6. Sarah Palin billed Alaska taxpayers almost $17,000 for her to spend 300+ nights in her own home. Can I get in on that program?
7. She also billed taxpayers over $135,000 for travel expenses, unusual acts that are illegal in many places.
8. The “corruption fighter” maintains a political relationship with Ted Stevens, indicted on seven counts of corruption.
9. The V.P. acceptance speech Palin is being hailed for was written before she was even offered the position.
NEW WORLD ORDER GLOBALIST
2. Willing to go to war with Russia over Georgia conflict, even though Georgia violated their treaty and attacked first.
3. Says she believes Iraq was responsible for the 9-11 attack, something even President Bush has been forced to deny.
5. Palin refused to take a position on the intrusive “Real ID”, even thought the Alaska legislature voted 58-2 to reject it.
7. Alaska is a “sanctuary state” for illegal aliens.
8. One of the first ads for McCain-Palin was a Spanish ad telling (illegal) aliens that they would be more favorable for them than Obama.
9. To gain some foreign affairs experience, the campaign had veteran globalist Henry Kissinger take her to the annual opening of the United Nations General Assembly.
TALK WITHOUT WALK (CONTRADICTIONS)
5. Her speechwriter, Matthew Scully, is an anti-gun, Card-carrying PETA vegetable.
6. Three of her five closest friends (from Wasilla “Elite Gang of Six”) are pro-abortion. Are more than half of your closest friends pro-abortion?
8. But she has kept a pledge from her 2006 campaign for governor to not press for creation-based alternatives or seek creation advocates for the school board. Of all the pledges for her to keep, she’s keeping the one she should never have made.
9. Her oldest son will soon be deploying to Iraq (with her blessing) where, besides risking his own life in a questionable cause, he likely will have to kill other people's children in an unjust, unprovoked, war of aggression. Muslims are just as alive and possessing of eternal souls as the pre-born.
12. She’s now claiming man may be responsible for global warming, and claiming she never denied human culpability. She won’t pull McCain to the right, he is already pulling her to the left.
13. Supported “bridges to nowhere” but now claims she’s against them. I guess she’s exercising a woman’s prerogative to change her mind … again.
14. Says she won’t let a "personal opinion" interfere with a McCain administration policy that differs from hers.
15. The GOP and campaign are up in arms about Palin’s email being hacked, but those very same people have no qualms about hacking your email, phone calls, bank records, medical records, travel records, credit records, library records, et al, under Homeland Security legislation. Feel more secure?
5. By her own admission, Sarah never prayed about her acceptance of the VP offer, nor did she even discuss it with her husband, before instantly making such a major, life-altering, family-uprooting decision.
2. She admits to having smoked marijuana when it was legal in Alaska between 1975 and 2006.
4. Sarah was pregnant before she eloped to marry her husband.
7. Gov. Palin issued a proclamation supporting the Prince Hall black Mason group. Questionable group to support.
8. Being in beauty pageants in the first place, which are fleshly contests, is not a wise endeavor for a Christian lady. Wonder if there’s a connection here with the immodesty, fornication, and unwed pregnancies?
9. Her own mother-in-law did not support her for mayor and so far doesn’t support her for Vice President.
10. The Palin administration in Alaska made rape victims pay to have their rapes investigated. Other crime victims don’t have to pay for the crimes committed against them to be investigated.
1. Despite rhetoric to the contrary, Palin is PRO-CHOICE on abortion. When asked what extent should abortion be prohibited in Alaska, if Roe vs. Wade was overturned, she replied: “It would be up to the people of Alaska to discuss and decide how we would like our society to reflect our values”. She added that she “opposes the use of public funds for elective abortions”, indicating she supports using public money for non-elective abortions. Although she SAYS she’s pro-life, she’s DONE nothing to curb abortion in Alaska.
2. She was criticized by pro-life groups in Alaska when she refused to include two abortion-related measures in special sessions she called earlier this year to act on her proposal to build a gas pipeline. She said those bills would be too distracting from the pipeline measure, which she considered a higher priority and wanted passed, said Republican Alaska State Senator Lyda Green.
3. Immediately after being tabbed for the V.P. slot, Palin cancelled an appearance where she was to receive the Republican National Coalition for Life's 2008 Life of the Party award from Phyllis Schafly.
4. The McCain-Palin campaign announced Saturday (9-13-08) that they would spend millions more of your tax dollars on stem cell research. Such research kills unborn babies to perform experiments on them (and you though Mengele’s eugenics program was defeated in WWII, didn’t you?). When does life begin Ms. Palin? Mr. McCain? Or is that above your pay level? What if Mr. Palin says his pro-life wife shouldn’t support such a program? Will she submit to her husband, or some other man?
