In a speech introducing Michael Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Regan. Sarah Palin did what I would call a
paranoid potentially meth induced rant implying that our current administration is trying to turn the United States into some sort of communist state.
Palin warned that the government is planning to "bail out debt ridden states" so it can "get in there and control the people."
"Since when can you get out of huge national debt by creating trillions of dollars of new debt?" Palin asked. "It all really is so backwards and skewed as to sound like absolute nonsense when some of this economic policy is explained."
"We need to be aware of the creation of a fearful population, and fearful lawmakers, being led to believe that big government is the answer, to bail out the private sector, because then government gets to get in there and control it," she said. "And mark my words, this is going to be next, I fear, bail out next debt-ridden states. Then government gets to get in there and control the people."
"Some in Washington would approach our economic woes in ways that absolutely defy Economics 101, and they fly in the face of principles, providing opportunity for industrious Americans to succeed or to fail on their own accord," she said. "Those principles it makes you wonder what the heck some in Washington are trying to accomplish here."
What the fuck is she talking about? Economics? Really? This from the Governor of Alaska, a state with all of about 6 people. I’m sure she’s an expert on Economics 101.
"It is war over there, so it will not be war over here," she said. "And it had better still be our mission that we win, they lose."
Since when did a conceding incumbent start making demands? This from a women who is against sex education in school but her daughter Bristol Palin was pregnant at 17? Why is she even speaking? She’s irrelevant and makes an ass out of herself every time she speaks. Palin, those people are laughing at you, not with you. If those words don’t sound like the words of a person smokin’ “that shit”, I don’t know what does.
So because our current administration is bailing out businesses so that Americans MIGHT be able to keep their jobs, thus forcing unemployment down, thus keeping food in people’s mouths and mortgages paid, she’d rather we let every business fail? Why? Because she feels like the government wants to get in there and “control the people”.
I do agree that some businesses should be left to fail. GM is a good example. Clearly the company was mismanaged. Ford isn’t failing, in fact they’ve recently ramped up production. But we cannot allow every business to fail without some government intervention. Isn’t that what the government is here to do? To help? It’s your political party Palin that got us into the debt we’re in today. So crawl back into your meth lab trailer in Alaska, help raise your grandchild and leave the politics to the administration the United States voted into office and ZIP IT!
