If we “rank the red,” we will reclaim Alaska’s only House seat from the Democrats and give Alaskans the representation they want and deserve.
I’m asking for your vote because Alaska has a chance to send a message to the whole country.
Palin: "President Obama, please don't declare 'Mission Accomplished' and then saunter away with an assumption that your opposition to the Iraq strategy was key to our troops' success."
Just as she had lots to say on Facebook about health care reform (remember the "death panels?"), former Sarah Palin is now all over BP's oil spill. "We need permission to drill in safer areas, including the uninhabited arctic land of (Alaska's) ANWR," Palin says. Here's her post from Facebook on Wednesday:
My book, Going Rogue, is dedicated to you - to Patriots - who fight for freedom!
PALIN SAYS: The response in the main stream media has been most predictable, ironic, and as always, detached from the lives of ordinary Americans who are sick of the "politics of personal destruction".
PALIN: In the words of General MacArthur said, "We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction."
In response to your May 27 editorial, let me explain why I vetoed $28.6 million of federal stimulus funds tied to adoption of universal energy building codes.
Ensuring that Alaskans have affordable energy for decades to come is one of the most important jobs on my desk right now. To succeed, the state needs to look at every possible option and make sure Alaskans have all the information to make the right decisions.
Some question my decision to accept job-ready stimulus funds, while leaving on the table for discussion other funds that grow government. Washington dollars are tempting, but we must consider whether they create sustainability, help develop our resources, reduce dependency on Washington, and all without mortgaging our kids' futures.
I am dismayed that legislation has again been introduced in Congress to prohibit forever oil exploration in ANWR, the most promising unexplored petroleum province in North America.
As we approach the final vote in the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act process (AGIA), I sincerely commend the members of our Alaska Legislature for conducting such a thorough review of this administration's recommendation to issue the AGIA license to TransCanada Alaska.
Since the Legislature approved the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act last year, some people have questioned whether the state's potential $500 million capital match is necessary. Even some of those who voted for it have asked, "is AGIA worth $500 million?"
