President Sarah Palin (God save us all)

United States
October 4, 2008 7:48am CST
During the debate on Thursday night, there was a questions asked to the candidates if something would happen to the president how they would run the country. Joe Biden said that he would run the country using the same ideas and principles of Barack Obama. Sarah Palin said that she is a maverick, and that she doesn't agree with McCain 100%. She also said that she would bring some reality from Wasilla main street, brought to Washington DC. Now I found this really funny seeing how as mayor of Wasilla she hired a lobbist to take more tax payer dollars from the rest of the country to fund her tiny city. There were more taxpayer dollars spent per person in Wasilla during her time in office than that of other small cities like Chicago, New York, Detroit, and Los Angels. As governor of Alaska, she has been an earmark queen, asking the American taxpayers to send them hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for their everyday needs. They are like a state on welfare, and they have shown no signs of getting off of it. Is this what you want for the United States? I think the country needs less Wasilla government in Washington.

As I've said before, she took that little town of barely 6,000 (at the time she left as mayor) from zero debt to $18.6 million in six years (a debt of nearly $3,000 per person...not per TAXPAYER, per PERSON, man, woman, and child). To the idea of her applying her economic strategy to the nation as a whole, I've got to say thanks, but no thanks.

Wrong. That debt was voted on by referendum by the voters in Wassila.

Yeah, I'm sure Wasilla's residents were clearly told that their vote would plummet them into debt. I have no doubt Palin was very honest about the financial implications of her irresponsible spending. Right. What about Palin charging Alaskans for staying at home? Was that voted on, too? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/graphic/2008/09/09/GR2008090900280.html?sid=ST2008090900325&s_pos=list

old hat. WAY old and WAY overhashed and skewed. not even worth going over again. Besides, both big box parties have lost my vote this last week anyway so none of this even matters to me anymore.

Considering she is the only one who didn't have her hands made filthy in that sham bailout (financial coup) this past week, I wish she was on the top of the ticket.

So after what Bush and Cheney have done to the country, you'd like to see her finish the job? I don't get it. Why do you want to destroy the United States? She simply is not qualified, in any way, shape or form, to be vice president, much less president.

No, actualy I am not voting for either of the 2 main parties. as far as I'm concerned, they sold us out this past week. All I said was, at least Palin didn't have a hand in this FED scam.

"So after what Bush and Cheney have done to the country" And I can't believe that after the last week, people are STILL clinging to this tired mantra. This goes so much deeper than "bush cheny". Why don't people get this yet, it was nearly ALL OF THEM!.
