    Fear.

    Liberals are terrified by Sarah Palin. Not sure why.

    But they're keeping her in business.

    For someone they say has no credibility they sure do fear her.

    Was thinking the same thing. It seems like most of her credibility with the right these days is derived from the amount of attention she receives from the antagonists in the media.

    WHY NOT? Why should anything a state government does be secret? It is secrecy that enables evil. At least that's what the guy who wrote the Bible concluded.

    Spose they are trying to get her into the race to muddy the waters so they have a better chance with what's his name?

    I see what you are saying, but why is the media demanding emails from the other 56 Governors?

    You mean like passing a secret National healthcare/eugenics Bill without letting we the people of the 57 states read it?

    >You mean like passing a secret National healthcare/eugenics Bill without letting we the people of the 57 states read it?

    Isn't the point of representative government supposed to be that we trust the people we elect to do what is best for us?

    Maybe the other 49 governors know that their emails are public property and are more circumspect? For that matter, anything on baptistboard could end up on the 6 o'clock news.

    Yes but there is another factor Bill. The consent of the governed. We can't consent to a bill the details of which is secret (until it is passed, the money allocated, and the Czaars appointed).

    Or maybe the other 56 governors don't terrify the progressive left.

    The mere mention of Palin's name sends progressives into a state of catharsis.

    I think it means consent to be governed. It does not mean agreeing with every law. Do you ignore the laws with which you disagree?

    You asked: Do you ignore the laws with which you disagree?

    and Rosa Parks disagreed with and ignored that law

    All I did was answer you question.

    "...that government of the people, by the people, for the people..."

    It means both. Primarily it means the consent of the governed and is naturally complimented by the right of "redress of grievances" and the ballot box, the path to take when one feels the government has overstepped it's authority or has gone against the will of the people.

    Yes, and she was willing to pay the price of breaking the law. She was fired from her job as a seamstress in a local department store for her action.

    Remember this was an era when in the South:

    A better question would be is it permissible for a Christian to oppose an unfair law?

    So the lamestream media has been on the job digging through her emails for a while now...

    So where is the dirt?

    They must be really disappointed right about now. :laugh: :laugh:

    Didn't you just say secrecy leads to evil? Not to consistent are you?
