Sarah Palin is the enemy of the Alaskan people, how can you denied that the financial conditions of her people and the high unemployment in Alaska. You are not their voices, you are another Nadya Suleman, having kids to be a burden in the dire money tied of your constituents.

If you had checked your facts before running your flapper, you would have noticed that her approval rate is higher than that of "Obama the messiah" and that her management of that state is so effective that the citizens get checks for the use of their natural resources.
She doesnt need to accept bribes or federal funding to keep her jurisdiction prosperous.

She actually has more experience at managing a budget and military, unlike the bozo you voted for.

I saw a summer job ad for Alaska working in a cannery. 16 hour shift, 3 month commitment, 7 days a week and NO OVERTIME pay. How is that legal ? And it only pays $7.85 an hour. That's some conservative state. More like Nazi Germany's forced labor

Distorted views? Let's hear you rant about Obama and all of his distorted views (which is basically his entire platform)!

More like a Hot Governor in a Red Bra and tight Black Skirt.

And, ya know what? Without George Bush to kick around anymore, probably the most powerful politician in the United States (the real reason why the Dirty Demos keep trying to "make light" of her)

Are you saying she should do it like they do in "Cali?" (Perfect example of a liberal state gone bust!)

That union bill obama is pushing puts us closer to a Nazi state. Some freedoms. God help us!

Dividend checks distributed for the natual resources on State Lands, similar to the Dividends received by the Native Alaskians for the energy substracted from their tribal lands.

One is a practice of socialism that should benefit all residents equally, the other is a right and benefit as a result of land ownership in a tribal society, one mocks the other.

One is a practice in socialism the redistribution of the state's wealth to those whom don't have to work of their dividend checks.

How does open voting on union membership put Americans closer to a Nazi State? How does that option eliminate any American Guranteed Freedoms?

Last time I checked her approval rating was 4 points higher than Obama and Pelosi COMBINED. Granted that with Obama crashing and burning and California Pelosi at only 11%, that's not too hard.

Voting with a union goon breathing down your neck isnt as free as casting an anonymous, private vote.
No repercussions, no worry of backlash.
But Obama and Biden have favors to pay back to their union supporters, I understand.

I am sure their dividends will be taxed away from them by the feds and given to the less ambitious americans who it is owed to....

Not if the gross adjusted income doesn't rise above 250K a year, and then there is only a small increase of 4% back to the pre Bush days...

That's not enought to cause any concern. For the vast majority of Alaskians whom have a median income of 70K per year, they'll not see any increase in their taxes. The Alaskians will see more of the dividends than they have been seeing over the last 8 years. As is the case with most Americans, 95% of them will enjoy taking home and keeping more of their earnings.

A very prudent and fiscally smart move on the part of Palin. Too bad for the tax and spend-crazy Democrat socialists in her state! Alaska has demonstrated very good financial stability under Palin that most other states would surely envy but as we know, most states are run by Democrat legislatures and suffer unduly because! I wish our quasi Republican Gov. and Democrat controlled Senate and Legislature would follow her lead!

Wake the heck up! So when you vote for a person for Congress, President, etc. It is you right as an American to vote and it's nobody's business who you vote for. So why does a Union have any business knowing whether you voted for or against a union. It's not any of their business. The ONLY reason the Union wants to know so they can target those workers who voted against it. There is NO other reason for the Union Leaders to know if you did or did not vote to Unionize! That is exactly what started happening in Nazi Germany in case you don't know history!
