Please enlighten me, other than when she was campaigning in ‘08, when has she been soft on our sovereignty and borders? The branches of the government?
You’re right, she hasn’t to date enumerated federal departments or agencies she wants to eliminate.
As to abortion, which I expect is the core of your issue with her, she has of course personally walked the walk far more than most. She has probably also worked harder to persuade than most—wasn’t it after all Piper as a baby on that poster up in Alaska? Her constitutional view on federalism and states rights in your opinion is unwise, but in my opinion is the most likely route, grandstanding aside, to getting abortion reduced and eliminated in the country. She has actually been the most effective and consistent prolife advocate on the national level in decades. How many speeches has she given on it just in the last year?
But we’re of course both entitled to our differing opinions on Palin or any other prospective candidates.
Her support as Governor for the Law of the Sea Treaty is a MAJOR attack on our national sovereignty. During the '08 campaign she supported McCain's immigration position, including a "pathway to citizenship," which every sentient American knows is amnesty. She made it clear at that time that she had no desire to deport those foreign nationals who have invaded our country. And her support for McCain in '10 was a reiteration. Don't fool yourself.
You do know that her top foreign policy adviser is a McCain man, a DC lobbyist who to this day is still on the payroll of George Soros, right?
The branches of the government?
When she was running for Governor of Alaska she didn't want to talk about abortion. She made it clear that in her view that was entirely up to the Supreme Court. Sorry, but all officers of government, in every branch and at every level, take the oath of office, not just judges. And the branches are supposed to check one another. And just because one branch breaches their oath, that doesn't give any other officer of any other branch leave to breach their oath. Exactly the opposite is true. When one branch breaches their oath the other branches have no choice but to oppose them unless they too want to be in breach of the promise they made to God.
Another thing: When she became Governor she was immediately faced with a constitutional crisis of sorts. The top court in her state had ruled that the state had to give "same sex" benefits to homosexual state workers. The legislature had moved to check that activist court and put legislation on Governor Palin's desk that basically told the court to go to hell. After consulting with her RINO Republican lawyers, who told her that it was the court who got to decide what was "constitutional," she sided with the court and checked the legislature by vetoing the legislation. The radical homosexuals got their way.
THAT, my FRiend, is someone who doesn't understand the way our form of government is supposed to work. That is why I call her a judicial supremacist. She is one.
By the way, she changed her tune when she decided to run for national office. Suddenly, abortion wasn't just "up to the Supreme Court" any more. It was "up to the states."
This pro-choice for states position is one hundred and eighty degrees out of phase with the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution's own stated purposes, and the clear imperative requirements of the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments. It is also not compatible with the Reagan pro-life plank that has been in the GOP platform since 1984.
Youre right, she hasnt to date enumerated federal departments or agencies she wants to eliminate.
That's a pretty big admission. Can you explain to me how she can be considered to be the candidate of the "TEA Party," this being so?
As to abortion, which I expect is the core of your issue with her, she has of course personally walked the walk far more than most. She has probably also worked harder to persuade than mostwasnt it after all Piper as a baby on that poster up in Alaska?
What, because she didn't kill her own kid? Since when is that a pro-life credential? Have we fallen THAT far? I guess Obama is pro-life too, since he didn't kill his two girls, eh?
Her constitutional view on federalism and states rights in your opinion is unwise, but in my opinion is the most likely route, grandstanding aside, to getting abortion reduced and eliminated in the country.
It isn't just "unwise." It is destructive of every important core principle of this country. States don't have a "right" to alienate unalienable rights. Sorry. That is NOT "federalist." It would be more accurate to call it "confederate."
She has actually been the most effective and consistent prolife advocate on the national level in decades. How many speeches has she given on it just in the last year?
Not really. She often uses the language of choice, and talks about how much she respects those who think it's "okay" to butcher babies. I guess people hear what they want to hear. To me, her "pro-life" speeches are a bunch of cotton candy meaningless rhetoric. especially in light of her known "states' rights trump unalienable rights" position.
But were of course both entitled to our differing opinions on Palin or any other prospective candidates.
Of course. But we're not entitled to our own facts.
