Democrats can take a lesson on cap-and-tax

By Rep. Don Young | Sunday, August 9, 2009

On July 24, Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and John Kerry of Massachusetts took to The Washington Post to attack former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s opposition to the Waxman-Markey cap-and-tax legislation and her overall energy philosophy.

Mrs. Palin correctly criticized the scheme presented in the legislation sponsored by Democratic Reps. Henry A. Waxman of California and Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts. By only citing a report from the left-of-liberal Center for American Progress, Mr. Kerry and Mrs. Boxer naively underestimate the effects the legislation will have on the American economy. Other, more mainstream organizations, such as the Brookings Institution and the Black Chamber of Commerce, disagree.

Waxman-Markey artificially creates competition between cheap, abundant energy and unreliable, expensive renewable forms, compelling utilities to use heavily subsidized, politically correct “renewable energy” while thousands who work producing traditional energy lose their jobs.

All the while, American industry will flee to other countries where they can power their assembly lines with cheaper energy. Because nearly four decades of obscene subsidies for wind and solar power haven’t worked, Waxman-Markey ups the ante and engages in societal re-engineering and fundamental restructuring of America’s energy supply.

I am not a McCain supporter but the U. S. threw away the opportunity to elect a competent VP with common sense in favor of a smooth talking inept community organizer and a clown. Congress likewise has mostly become a joke powered by the duo of Pelosi/Reid. Let’s change this fiasco in 2012.

We need to get behind and get Governor Palin’s message out. Let’s have President Sarah Palin in 2012. Certainly the MSM will not get behind her. They are to in bed with Barak Hussein Obama.

Greetings from CT, Bob!I’m trying to contact as many Team Sarah New York members as I can. We have about 50 in our Connecticut for Sarah group, and we are pledging to contact many TS members, every day . Each of us will select a different state. If we are successful, we might be able to contact most of the current Team Sarah enrollment. As SMITH explores the realm of possibilities, he has concluded that a Campaign Club for Sarah might be a bold way to motivate everyone involved with Team Sarah. So, he and his brain-trust, Gina, started the Team Sarah Group, $AVINGS 4 $ARAH. You can find us @ http://www.teamsarah.org/group/saving4sarah. We strongly urge everyone who supports and defends Sarah to make a small sacrifice each week for a cause worthy of the American spirit. This is how it works. We take a shoebox or piggy bank, decorate it if we like, label it with a nickname maybe, and donate just $2 every week. The way SMITH has it figured, that’s about $325 in 3 years. If just 100,000 people comply, over $30 million might be raised for Sarah’s run in 2012. If you can afford more than $2, by all means do it. You may also wish to make it a family project.

SMITH is a BIG thinker, however. He likes seven-figured numbers. He envisions 1 million donors saving $300 million and possibly even 3 million or more collecting almost 1 Billion Dollar$ for Sarah.

Barack Obama amassed $650 million for his campaign by establishing a broad base of small donors early-on. He was able to return to them over and over for additional funding whenever he needed. Well, my friends in New York, we can do the very same thing and more!!

We are ardent supporters of Sarah Palin. She has shown an abundance of True Grit as well as displaying a parabolic learning curve. The future may look bleak at times, but we are Americans, and no task is too difficult to accomplish if we all pull together.

Please pass this email along to your friends as a recruiting tool to gain more members for all the Team Sarah groups. This is totally a grass roots effort.. Let’s show the party bosses and stuffed-shirt elites in Washington that WE THE PEOPLE still have clout!

Visit Team Sarah and let’s start yesterday.

Like an NFL receiver who makes a difficult catch and then gets hit high and low simultaneously, Sarah Palin wins the Republican Party’s game ball.

Although accomplishing what no other Republican candidate for national office has in modern times, the Alaska governor was snarled at, mocked, condescended and socially snubbed by pretentious Manhattan and Washington Beltway insiders for not being one of them, for getting too close to the common herd of regular Americans.Read this fine article here.
Thanks to our friend at Goodtime Politics for making us aware of this article.

Thanks to Chrissie over at Theodore’s World for e-mailing me this link. Piper is so cute in this clip. Let’s make it happen, and get behind  Governor Palin for President in 2012.

Bob, I lived in Anchorage from ‘75 -’95, we fought tooth and claw to get the capitol moved to the population center so the people could access it, Sarah has done that by example. she has ‘availed’ herself, something that previous governors refused to do. Most of the government building are leased – from former politicians like Walter Hickle, Ted Stevens, etc. who own blocks of property in both Juneau and Anchorage. Chicago has it’s corrupt, Alaska got their carpetbaggers. – Jack

Alaska government migrates to the north

Capital shift?

Alaskans have argued for generations over the location of the state capital, about access and power and the weather in Juneau. But in just two years, and with hardly any debate, Gov. Sarah Palin has shifted the center of state government to Anchorage. Read the story here.

Thanks to our friend Jack for bringing this to us. Thanks Jack, Bob A.

Once again Governor Palin shows that she does not follow the establishment, does not follow the pack. This is the person we need leading this country. Not Obama who is only transferring the dirty Chicago style politics to Washington DC only increasing the stench of unsavory politicians. Get behind Sarah Palin for president in 2012.
