Unhinged Palin Says Obama WIll Turn The US Into A Communist Type Country
Palin: Obama's Tax Plans Could Mean Nightmare Communist State

Sarah Palin had a few memorable moments during her campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday. But the most eye-opening of them all came, it would appear, when the Alaska Governor somehow drew a connection between Barack Obama's tax policy and an encroaching, nightmarish, communist government. The Illinois Democrat, she hysterically suggested, would, through his proposals, create a country "where the people are not free."

"See, under a big government, more tax agenda, what you thought was yours would really start belonging to somebody else, to everybody else. If you thought your income, your property, your inventory, your investments were, were yours, they would really collectively belong to everybody. Obama, Barack Obama has an ideological commitment to higher taxes, and I say this based on his record... Higher taxes, more government, misusing the power to tax leads to government moving into the role of some believing that government then has to take care of us. And government kind of moving into the role as the other half of our family, making decisions for us. Now, they do this in other countries where the people are not free. Let us fight for what is right. John McCain and I, we will put our trust in you."

If she really understood socialism, communism, and all the other -isms, she wouldn't say that kind of idiotic crap.

16. No; but their supporters are.
That stupid or that racist, or both. How else do you vote against giving yourself a tax cut, and in favor of giving yet another tax cut to the richest 1%?

26. Pretty soon they'll just start calling him Gamel Abdel Nasser
That seems to be the theoretical sum-total of all the things they've tried to label him as. Of course, even Nasser wasn't really any of those things (besides a Muslim).

40. I know. They keep saying all this like it's a bad thing.
I'll never be able to run for public office because I used to be a card-carrying member of the Socialist Party USA. And I still would be if they had an ice cube's chance of winning anything.

52. I put myself out of the running too
Years ago I accepted a red mayday flag from a communist at Pike Place Market. I'm sure there's tape of it somewhere, they were always surveilling that corner. Used to stick the flag out my apartment window and scare the beejeezus out of the neighbors who thought it was some kind of gang thing. :hi:

He'll drop off the Palin Family in Yuma, AZ and tell to go pick lettuce for the summer. LOL :D

Yes, I've lived in Yuma, AZ for 3 years. And it's a dry heat! But I liked it, it had everything I needed: used bookstores, D&H music store, porn mags, a wide variety or liquor & beer, mexican food and DVDs! That's all I needed as a Marine to make me happy back then. :D

55. Gov. Palin is a disgrace to Alaska & America.
Gov. Palin needs to be Impeached, now!!!

At the very least, Alaskans need to mount a Recall Petition & toss her out. She is corrupt & inept. She is unfit to be Gov., much less VP or possibly Pres. of the USA..

60. Listen at about 39 seconds
One of those lovely republican bastards shouts out "Because he's a n***er!"

I knew this was coming but it still turns my stomach. I'm filled with a rage at these pieces of human excrement. I thought I was ready for it but I am shaking. I'm a fairly peaceful person but at the moment I want to punch someone.

Please someone tell me I'm wrong.


Damn them. Damn those inhuman raciest fuckers.
