Coming Soon...

Don't be fooled by the fact that I haven't been posting much this week; I have been working my tail off preparing new material for the new year. In the next day or two, I will be rolling out a new motto, a new manifesto, and some new graphics for your blogs. In addition, I am in the early planning stages of some potentially huge developments. I would tell you what they are, but I have to hold off until I know whether the pieces fall into place to make them possible.

Stay tuned...

Dear Adam: I do have on my wall a big picture of Sarah Palin, but I assure you it's only for political purposes.

Like most Alaskans, Sarah knows a good deal about fishing. But the time is approaching for her to fish or cut bait.

To this point, you and the Draft Palin Movement have done all you can to advance her name as a good choice for V-P. Her response has been, "I'm flattered, but . . ." That's no longer enough.

She needs to step out onto the national stage. I assure you (and her) that many other people will be running hard for the V-P slot. She needs to appear on "Meet the Press" (which I bet would love to have her). She needs to get out and support other candidates, including the fine crop of Iraq War vets we have running for Congress.

You took a risk with the Draft Palin Effort. Now, she needs to take some risks.

She could be the first V-P choice in a long time to have an actual effect on the presidential race.

Why would you want a tax and spend liberal like Sarah Palin to be VP? She is growing state government in Alaska at an alarming rate.

She recently signed the largest tax increase ever on the industry that pays 85% of the state's budget.

Palin signed House Bill 2001 (aka ACES) into law Dec. 19, 2007. ACES raises the base tax rate on oil production from 22.5 percent to 25 percent; it also includes a 0.4 percent surcharge for each dollar the price of oil rises above $52 per barrel and is expected to bring in an additional $1.5 billion in revenue next year.

"BP plans to pull investment from Alaska after a $1.5bn tax increase."

"ConocoPhillips says it's canceling a major North Slope project because the new oil tax."

See what happens to Alaska under Palin?

Alaskan and Anonymous,

I know this is hard for you, but please put down the kool-aid. This site has documented Sarah Palin's ficscal conservatism time after time, and so has the Club for Growth! She vetoed a quarter-billion dolalrs in spending, slashed earmark requests, and drastically slowed the growth of Alaska's government. ACES was a tax structure recalibration neccessitated by last years oil tax bill (PPT), which was literally bought and paid for by the VECO corporation (a bribery operation for which several legislators have been indicted). I like tax cuts a lot, but PPT went too far and deprived the state of needed revenue.

Shrinking government (as Palin has done repeatedly) is a good thing. On the other hand, purposefully cheating the government out of needed funds by bribing legislators is a BAD thing.

I know it's hard for Murkowski and Hlcro supporters to accept. But the idea of Sarah Palin as a tax and spend liberal is a myth.

You're right about Sarah's fiscal conservatism. As I said on my site to the same morons, some taxes are good (such as, say, ones for Homeland Security and military defense, as well as for state police, as in Alaska) and some spending -- see the prior statements -- is good. For BP, $1.5 billion is chump change.

In 2007, Palin proposed to much fanfare cutting the operating budget $150 million by finding efficiencies. They found none and cut nothing. Instead the governor signed the highest operating budget in history.

Fiscal conservative, huh?

Riiiight. What do you think of her raising state spending by 27 percent?
