The Right Calls Obama a Dictator, but Sarah Palin Disarmed the Alaska Civil Militia

Irony knows no bounds when it comes to the Tea Party.

In 2008, Tea Party Queen and Shoot ‘Em Up and Hang ‘Em Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) disarmed brigade members of the Alaska State Defense Force (think volunteer militia) at the recommendation of the state military officials, based on a report by an investigator with the Washington National Guard.

In a major decision proving unpopular with at least some of the force’s roughly 280 members, the state is taking away the brigade’s guns.

Yes, Sarah Palin, as executive of the state, took away their guns. And no, conservatives, you can’t have it both ways. Clearly they gave Sarah Palin the report and she took executive action on it (also known as “tyranny” when a Democrat does it).

“The report does not say Westall was a bad commander,” Campbell said. “The report says the state defense force, it’s a voluntary organization, it’s part time, it’s dedicated volunteers serving their state, but they don’t have the intensity of training, the skill sets the National Guard has.”

2. Thank You.

The only other recent incident I am aware of where the government confiscated the guns
of law abiding private citizens was immediately after Katrina in New Orleans,
during the administration of Bush-the-Lesser.

At one time, many towns & cities had local ordinances that required anyone entering the city limits to turn in their guns at the Sheriff's office, or they would be confiscated. Even in the Old West it was against the law to Open Carry or Concealed Carry in most civilized towns & cities.


Sarah Palin also raised taxes on the Oil Corporations in Alaska,
and used that revenue to finance the state budget,
and had enough cash left over to send a very nice check to all the residents of Alaska.
Talk about :redistribution of Wealth!!!
That made her the most Socialist Governor in America.

I would consider voting for her if she would pledge to do the same on her first day as President of the US, and then immediately quit and go home.
