Sarah Palin the Libertarian?

“She didn’t sound at all like a far-right-wing conservative. She seemed to be positioning herself as a libertarian or a small-c conservative,” he said, adding that she mentioned both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. “She brought up both those names.”

"Mrs. Palin said she was speaking as “someone from Main Street U.S.A.,” and she touched on her concerns about oversized federal bailouts and the unsustainable American government deficit. She did not repeat her attack from last month that the Obama administration’s health care proposals would create a “death panel” that would allow federal bureaucrats to decide who is “worthy of health care."

I had a feeling that she would try to align herself with the Libertarian/Constitutionalist Movement...If she's genuine I'd say welcome her in...but I'd rather see Ron or Rand Paul run for President in 2012...

You had a feeling she "would try" (???) to align herself with the Libertarian/Constitutional Movement. What in the bloody hell is that supposed to mean?


She's been attending Libertarian Party meetings since the mid-2000s. Her husband was a member of the Alaska Independence Party for two decades. Her political mentor is former AIP Governor Walley Hickel.

It's not like she's just now discovering libertarianism.

She's been a libertarian almost as long as Ron Paul in fact.
