Just curious...

Which voting record is that? Her non existent VP or congressional voting record. Or her record as Governor of Alaska and mayor of Wasilla? What in her voting record makes her a primetime neocon, and is she more or less of a neocon than other republican governors? At best I would classify her as a social-conservative-libertarian mix, which happens to align with Ron and Rand Paul. I think shes learned alot since '08 that she didnt understand before about national politics. I think that a closer look will enlighten some, atleast on her record. Yes, shes definately more hawkish on foriegn policy than we would like, which could classify her as a neocon. But being a neocon is more than just foriegn intervention, its the whole liberal/ big government mentality that permeates into economics and domestic affairs. Can no one change? What if we went around to everyone on this site and said "you werent born a libertarian/true conservative so therefore what you believe now is either a trick or a lie." People can change, it is within the realm of possibility. If Palin/ Beck/ Rand are lying to us to push some globalist agenda then I would say currently they are getting the short end of the stick. Their spending alot of time promoting and praising our stuff, thats a good thing! It feels like some of us are not content with a real shot at something, as if we enjoy losing and secretly hope Obama decides to take away a constitutional right tomorrow so we will have something to talk about. (Not all) I can be conspiratorial at times as well, but cmon. I love how people talk about race baiting and take the bait, or how they hate GMOs as their grilling up their foster farms steak, or libertarians that do not have a clue about how free markets work, or people that care more about weed being legal than our healthcare system and this idiotic Obamacare garbage. Sarah Palin is not perfect, but does she have to be? Why do we ask everyone to be exactly like Ron Paul? Its unrealistic and phony. People should focus on there individual state legislatures and state governments, if you control the states, who cares who the president is. You cant build the roof before the foundation while building a house, we all preach bottom-up government, so why not actually practice that and hammer out the not so sexy but deeply impactful local and state races. This is where the real war is, and realistically we cannot change congress untill we build a machine that can do that. Tons of liberty candidates run for office every year on a state and local level, what are we doing for them? The liberty movement cannot even bring itslef to fund any race that isnt justin amash, ron paul, or rand paul. Again, cannot build the roof before the foundation. Do some of you realize alot of these politicians have been bred to be these people and do what they do, be where they are, and there is a deep deep bench or farm team waiting in their wings. We just showed up to the proverbial party, without any cash, full of piss and vinegar, busy tearing down the politicos who are on our side while the neocons and the progressives laugh at our silliness. Remember liberty for all super pac? They understood this. They knew how it really needs to happen. If this movement doesnt fund its candidates at every level, which it could easily do, we may as well pack a lunch because its going to be a long couple years of ass whoopin.
