Thank you . I promise I will check out thoroughly your reommendations and perhaps with other collegues I respect . However if you wish to check out Wikipedia , essentially the biographic information on Palin , and inform me of what you believe to erroneous either in fact or opinion. I understand that you may not agree with her or myself but what do you believe is incorrect in Wikpedia?

Again thank you.

I have major issues with Wikipedia, not necessarily with her entry in wiki. I know all I need to know about her(pro life, believes in creationism) to know that I'd never vote Republican.

So do you think she is an evil backward hick for believing those things, or do you just disagree with her stances and the following conclusions they would draw on various issues?

Just wondering.

Preacher :

Question for you > Do you believe Palin offers the moderate and conservative voters and those who oppose goverenement intrusion a clear choice such that we will know what this country's citizens on balance wants from their governement ?

Is she unique and reslient enough?. I understand the enthusiasm for Oboma; and if you believe as his followers do; he is refreshing. However I do see him waffling to the center .

I have a reason for hope as I personally perceive this woman's independence and convictions.

Thank you, and I understand. I cannot vote for someone who does support abortion. Thus, at this point, I cannot vote for anyone in the Dem party.

Let's cut down to brass tax....

She is red meat thrown to the party base and independent conservatives out there who were drifting away from the party.

Fact is, the phrase "govt. intrusion" is quite tricky. A pro-choice woman will say banning abortion is a govt. intrusion while a pro-life woman will say it is protection life. A pro-2nd Amendment person will say gun control is govt. intrusion while gun control advocates will say it is an issue of public safety and thus protecting life.

Terms like Govt. intrusion get so overused that they don't mean anything anymore, which is the underlying problem of rhetoric... it strips meaning from words and hinders debate.

FOUL!!....

The words HOPE and CHANGE have been officially copyrighted by the Democratic Party.

You also may not use the phrases: "It’s time to turn the page”...“Fired up and ready to go.”....and “Yes, we can!”

I will continue to use the word government intrusion because it a pragmatic action . Intrusion, meaning governement steping in and determing what a small business MUST DO even if is not pragmatic and causes unecessary expenditures. I have owned my own business for 20 years and trust me intrusion is in fact applicable and in fact stronger words can be used.

Hope and change are personal or business properties subject to copy rights??? . Sounds like liberal dogma and such thinking really alarms me.

Also sounds like whistling in the dark as hope and change which still yet retains its own independence , thank GOD , has been spread over to the other side.
