He was a member of the radical Alaska Independent Party for 7 years. That party's main position is setting up Alaska as a separate country. She spoke at two of their conventions and supported their efforts. Sarah Palin embraces Alaska's independence 11:31 AM Tue, Sep 09, 2008 Tod Robberson Watch this video and see if you can find anything, any sort of language or voice inflection and shaking of the head to suggest that Sarah Palin repudiates what the Alaska Independence Party stands for. http://dallasmorningviewsblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2008/09/sarah-palin-emb.html What you'll find is a message of warm embrace from the governor of Alaska for a party whose late founder spoke of absolute disgust for this country. His is a message of hate for America and what it stands for. Don't believe me? Just listen to AIP found Joe Vogler speak. He couldn't stand the United States, refused to swear allegiance to the United States and said he'd rather be tried in a brothel than be subjected to the U.S. court system. Normally, I wouldn't hold Sarah Palin responsible for what Joe Vogler says, except that Republicans have already set this standard. Remember the outrage over Barack Obama and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright? Shouldn't Sarah Palin be held to the same standard?
