Oh be careful about embracing Ron Paul, he has some good ideas but he votes like a Democrat.
Palin has proven herself over and over.
There are not a lot of people hated more than Ron Paul by the establishment, Sarah Palin is one of them - that in itself should tell you Sarah Palin should be trusted.
BTW - all stuff you mention about has been debunked. Here is some nice info on Mike Hawker who you quote as a source. He is part of the Corrupt Bastards Club and was anti-Ron Paul.
