In 1865, the issue of secession was resolved with end of a bloody civil war that saw 620,000 soldiers (American men and boys) slaughtered on the battlefield to keep the United States united.

Our great nation survived this terrible conflict, and we built a nation over the next 100 years that became the envy of the world. Over the past 25 years, so-called conservatives have been attempting to destroy our nation, but they haven't done so yet.

Come now, the Alaskan Independence Party, a political party working to have Alaska secede from the United States. I think this is traitorous. It is certainly not in the best interests of the Untied States or its citizens for Alaska to secede, and no State has the right to secede.

You might think the Alaskan Independence Party is a wacky fringe party that nobody takes seriously, and you would probably be correct. Except there is one particular person who endorses the party's work, and wishes them Well and Godspeed. That person is the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee, Gov. Sarah Palin, of Alaska.

With her quaint, old-fashioned ideas about science and history, reproduction, equality, and freedom, Governor Palin also thinks that States (not just any State, but the State she is sworn to guide and protect) should secede from the nation that she wants to help run.

This seems odd to me. If I am making money running a plant that is part of a successful company, why would I want that plant to cease being part of the company? Also, why would I encourage people at the plant to promote this, and potentially commit conspiratorial crimes that could lead to damage to my plant? What kind of manager is this woman?

Though Governor Palin has never been a registered member of the Party, her husband was. I would love to know when he stopped being a registered member.

Governor Palin addressed the Alaskan Independence Party. Here is her recorded speech:

I don't know about you, but I would say this puts Governor Palin on the Radical-Extremist end of the political spectrum. Not a moderate, not even a conservative, but an extremist.

She wishes good luck and God's blessings for a group of people trying to destroy the United States, and refers to their efforts as 'good work'!

I would think this should disqualify her from being an elected federal office-holder and perhaps should be arrested and prosecuted for sedition.

Oooooh Dickmac, you don't know how MAD all of this makes me. Whenever I get really mad, I try to hit Obama's fundraising site with another $25. I had to reduce the amount slightly because I am getting more mad more often. We can only hope that the debates are going to stop the idiocy of rampant "Sarah-Love."
