As I told my loyal groupies and the Fool community on 31 Aug 08:
WHY IS McCAIN RUINING THIS LADY’S LIFE? Palin Mother of FOUR will NOT be VP.
I hope some Fools got in when the odds were paying 20 to 1. No doubt it is a matter of time, Palin will drop out. Do you think the DNC and Biden will not capitalize on Palin’s support for an Independent Alaska?
Comments on Youtube:Former member of AIP, Sarah Palin, addresses Alaskan Independent Party convention. There are two other clips here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHFY1o...
in which Dexter Clark, vice chairman of the AIP, gives a speech where he refers to Sarah Palin as a former member of the AIP and still sympathetic to their agenda. Very important to watch these clips also to get the full context.
Since discovering this story on August 31st, it has been picked up by the mainstream media to some extent. I found these clips on youtube on Aug 31st and put two and two together. Downloading and reupping them to my youtube account. Thanks to the original poster of the clips who apparently was unaware of the enormity of this story. My Post on 31 Aug 08:

OK Fools, what would life in the US be like without the resource rich Alaska?
Russia just supported independent Ossetia and Abkhazia. The EU just supported an independent Kosovo. Do you think they would support an independent Alaska? Can I get a HELL YEAH! Since the US debt is so large selling Alaska back to Russia could be considered. Why not? The US is selling many of its assets. Budweiser, Rockefeller Center, Sears Tower, toll roads, hotels etc…, why not just sell Alaska?
rd89, RonChapman wouldn't it be better to just sell Alaska?
Just kidding, I know you Fools like the members of the Brown shirts, Khmer Rouge, Bolsheviks, members of Jones town, etc...YOU have NO IDEA the background of the "leaders" you are following. You are just are just "drinking the Kool aid" the media is selling. After all Palin has been in the spot light a record 5+ days and with that resume! 1984 Ms Congeniality! No wonder you are piling on with that support! WOW!
But given the choices of Biden, Obama, McCain or Palin, at this moment in time, the majority of Americans would choose Palin for President.
