I do not usually send out political emails, so just stay with me here for a second.
With Sarah Palin nominated as the GOP VP this past week, many people do not know much about her. A friend of mine pointed me to this article [http://www.crosscut.com/politics-government/17341] that is actually written by someone from Palin's town who has known her and witnessed her political actions. I suggest that you read it to get a gist of who she is and what she stands for. At the bottom is a very clear cut, observational run down of her stances. The rest, admittedly, is not as unbiased, but it reads less so than a lot of media out there. Plus, the author gives several disclosures at the end.
Whether you are Rep. or Dem, it is important to know who exactly you are voting for and what they stand for and will bring into the government.
I am not going to write what I think about her as for those of you who know me you can pretty much tell what I would say in regards to her trying to censor books [my head exploded when I heard about that by the way], her actions in cutting special education support, opinions on gun control, environmental affairs, large government, and reproductive rights. I'm not writing what I think here because it's up to you to decide what you think what type of VP of this country deserves.
Get to know your candidates! The Boston Globe also profiles all candidates (just basic facts). http://www.boston.com/news/politics/2008/candidates/
