The first video shows the vice chairman of the Alaska Independence Party, Dexter Clark, addressing a meeting of party members. It's interesting to note what he says about Sarah Palin six minutes into the video.
In this one, Sarah Palin addresses the 2008 AIP Convention.
UPDATE: In this next video, Sarah Palin makes a speech to mark the 50th Anniversary of Alaska Statehood. The speech is somewhat boring, but @8:18 she mentions "independence" for Alaska in the future. What could she mean by that? (hat-tip to an alert reader)
Sarah Palin wants to be the President of the United States. She has upset the RNC, NRCC and NRSC on a few occasions recently. In fact, she's doing her best to alienate the whole GOP.
It goes without saying that she can't stand the present federal government.
In her op-ed for the ADN, she wrote:
"This federal involvement locks us into government dependency for longer periods. Alaskans must read the fine print on these federal mandates."
"When Alaska was granted statehood, it was with the expectation that our independent, innovative spirit and rich resources would largely sustain us, rather than depending on federal government."
"Creating more dependence on Washington steers us away from Alaska’s magnificent potential and destiny, and that, to me, is a problem."
"We are up to the challenge. This is the best lesson we can teach our children."
Is Sarah Palin going to run as an independent? Of course she can't run for the AIP, but wouldn't it be fun if she made it to the White House and finally seceded Alaska from the US?
Maybe Sarah really does believe in Alaska first, Alaska always!
