Palin: Government wants to 'control the people'
Posted: 06:11 PM ET
Sarah Palin spoke in Anchorage on Wednesday.
(CNN) Alaska governor Sarah Palin let loose Wednesday on the Obama administration for enacting fiscal policies that "fly in the face of principles" and "defy Economics 101."

In a speech introducing Michael Reagan the son of former President Ronald Reagan to an audience in Anchorage, Palin warned that the government is planning to "bail out debt ridden states" so it can "get in there and control the people."

"Since when can you get out of huge national debt by creating trillions of dollars of new debt?" Palin asked. "It all really is so backwards and skewed as to sound like absolute nonsense when some of this economic policy is explained."

"We need to be aware of the creation of a fearful population, and fearful lawmakers, being led to believe that big government is the answer, to bail out the private sector, because then government gets to get in there and control it," she said. "And mark my words, this is going to be next, I fear, bail out next debt-ridden states. Then government gets to get in there and control the people."

"Some in Washington would approach our economic woes in ways that absolutely defy Economics 101, and they fly in the face of principles, providing opportunity for industrious Americans to succeed or to fail on their own accord," she said. "Those principles it makes you wonder what the heck some in Washington are trying to accomplish here."

Though the bulk of her remarks focused on government encroachment into the private sector, and praise for former President Reagan's views on limited government, the former vice presidential candidate briefly touched on national security. She told the crowd that "the terrorists are still dead set against us" and that her son Track is still deployed in Iraq.

"It is war over there, so it will not be war over here," she said. "And it had better still be our mission that we win, they lose."

She also pointed to the recent dismissal of another ethics complaint against her, one that accused the governor of having a conflict of interest for wearing a jacket to the opening of the Tesoro Iron Dog race in February that feautured the logo of the sponsor of her husband's team. Palin has been forced to set up a legal defense fund to help pay for fees related to an onslaught of ethic complaints.

Palin said of the people who have filed the complaints: "Those are the folks who want to tell me, they want to tell you, to sit down and shut up. We will not do that. I just can't, because I love my state. I love my country."

I ruminated elsewhere about this and it encourages me that someone of the caliber of Sarah Palin has some of the same thoughts. The Dems will tell us that California is "too big to fail". We will be presented with nightmare scenarios of people starving to death, people dying on the streets for lack of medical care,etc. Supporting that state with way too many dreamers and half-wits (I've lived there) will simply invite more from other states. The Texas example (lowered taxes,a budget surplus) will be ignored. Why? You've been out there and busted ass and so have I. Sometimes, you gotta work your way out of trouble. I've worked 24 hour shifts. I've worked many a Sunday and most Saturdays. This ethic seems to have disappeared. Economics 101? Make a little more than you spend and you cannot fail. SC will now be forced to accept federal "stimulus" funds. Statutes determining how unemployment and education funds are spent have been simply rendered moot by court order. Part time employees will now get full benefits. School debt cannot be paid off. (I have my tax bill in front of me. 57% of my property tax goes for "school debt") When the government runs outta money, as they will,and soon, SC will be saddled with programs this state cannot afford. I remain optimistic that a new, more conservative Congress, can undo some of this. But California and other irresponsible states will be a deep sucking hole impossible to fill. But that's the plan,isn't it? To make the states permanently dependent on the federal government?

Louisiana has been put into the same position, Jindal didn't want the stimulus money as it is raising the amount for unemployment benefits, thats great for now but the state will be saddled with the increased amount long after the stimulus money is gone mandatory laws were enacted on the benefits , this was Jindal's objection, the state can't afford to pay the increased amount in years to come.
I see and understand your point on Govt. owned states, now with banks, car makers and each owing major bucks in stimulus monies, the Federal Govt. has managed to do the big take over, we are no longer an independent nation but a Govt. run monopoly and this is only the beginning. Obamanomics is going to be more of a silent take over than the Muslims are in motels, liquior, and cig.
