I have some mixed messages and feelings when I watch this 2008 video of the former governer. It’s part pep-talk, it’s part campaign speech, party chummy condescension. If you love Sarah Palin, this video won’t bother you. If you don’t like her, this will make you hate her more.
But for those who live here, this is just another reason we are different here:
We had a sitting governor addressing the convention of the largest third party in Alaska, a secessionist party at that. While she clearly didn’t see them as a threat, she obviously feels they are legitimate enough to warrant comparison to her own viewpoint. She had during her time in office appointed and dismissed party members from her administration.
The AIP, while supposedly not wanting to secede but just vote on if we should… Remains the party that no one in Alaska has heard of but that everyone wants to join when they hear about it.
Why is this? What keeps the largest third party of capturing a single school board seat?
Anyhow, enjoy the show. Enjoy talking about peaceful secession and voluntaryism with people.
