Sarah Palin Would Be Best VP For Ron PaulSubmitted by freeman on Sat, 09/22/2007 - 14:45
There has been some little bit of thought been put into who would make a good running mate for Dr. Paul's presidential bid, and I believe I have located the absolute perfect person for the job: Sarah Palin, Republican Governor of Alaska, one of the most free states in the country.
As I have thought about this, it has seemed obvious to me that there just aren't a whole lot of Ron Pauls running around out there from which to choose, but a look a closer look at Mrs. Palin reveals a startlingly familiar them to this Ron Paul supporter:
She has strong, rooted family values (she has four children and her husband is a commercial fisherman), was a two-time mayor of Wasilla, one of Alaska's fastest-growing communities, was elected President of the Alaska Conference of Mayors, and is probably the most popular governor in the U.S., with an approval rating in the 90% range!
In addition to being the youngest Governor in the history of Alaska, she is also the first woman to hold that office.
She has publicly complained about fellow Republicans' unethical behavior and references Alaska's Constitution whenever she speaks. Considered a maverick in the GOP, she goes around saying things like: "Fiscally speaking, the private sector can do a better job than government can do." and "Also just trusting individuals to make wise decisions for themselves and families. I have a lot of trust in individuals. I don't trust government nearly as much." She recently signed a bill making it a crime for public servants not to report bribery they know about.
Does any of this sound a bit familiar to a Ron Paul supporter?
