This video was played at the 2008 convention of the Alaskan Independence Party. If you're not familiar with Alaskan Politics, the AIP is the state's largest third party. Their biggest agenda item is Alaskan separatism, but they are also known for their hardcore libertarian-conservative ideology. So, if you want them to take you seriously, you need to have a serious commitment to small government.
Personally, I think the Governor showed a lot of guts by addressing the AIP. It showed her commitment to serving all of her constituents and reinforced her position as a fiscal and economic conservative. It may have been a risky move, but we need leaders who are willing to take risks if we want to fix Washington.
