Women Against Palin

Liberal linkage: Women Against Sarah Palin.

A few letters written in to the website:

As a woman and a registered Republican I am very concerned about the choice of Mrs. Palin as a vice-presidential candidate. I do not believe that she stands for most American woman as she is against a woman’s right to choose in medical decisions concerning her own body, she has demonstrated an intolerance for differing beliefs, she does not believe in birth control or sex education. I was planning on voting for McCain but the Republican ticket has lost my vote because of this choice.
–Carol C., Tiverton, RI

Sarah Palin is the epitome of an old-style woman: a ruthless pawn of powerful men, spewing platitudes that fit a by-gone world where human beings thought nature was to be harnessed, surmounted, as the means to progress. We know better now. Nature is telling us we are too many, too careless, too heedless of the natural consequences of our wasteful ways. We can use wind, solar power, conservation, diplomacy, intelligence, education, thoughtfulness, science, creativity and wisdom. Palin is against all these. She is a patsy for Rove and his greedy schemes. I am against her and all she stands for. I stand for being a thinking woman with brains and choices and rights and respect for the Earth.
–Sansea S., New Haven, Vermont

As a resident of rural Alaska, I speak from a perspective of one who has had to experience the detrimental policies and world view of Palin. Any thought I may have given to listening to what McCain has to say has now been completely annihilated due to his choice of running mate. Palin can not be allowed anywhere near a position of power in this country if we want to retain any semblance of what this country fundamentally and consitutionally upholds.
–Marian M., Alaska

I couldn’t support to candidate less: I enjoy my reproductive rights
and reading uncensored library books. I take responsibility for
climate change and I want to help the polar bear. Creationism in
classrooms? Abstinence only sex-ed? What year is this??
–Amy F., Boston

    That Ms. Palin presumes her experience is adequate makes me so angry. She is wasting the opportunity that so many other women have done real – exemplary – work for. Her “family values” also blow me away – what good parent knowingly puts her 17 yo daughter’s challenges across the national stage for their own ambition?

  • Have you, by chance, seen the campaign on The Point against Sarah Palin? It’s for a crowd-sourced newspaper advertisements put together for swing states:

    It looks to have picked up a bit of support thus far today.

    Ales, I went to the site you attached and am curious as to what the people are going to do with all the money they collect since it won’t be enough to run the story? Also, don’t you think if it was a viable story about Palin, someone would pay BIG BUCKS for it? Please! They are trying to make a buck off of you because they know you and others like you will send them money.

    A blog from Lizzy Gore comments about Palin hiring friends… Let’s see, this is a smaller town, not as many prospects for the position, do we really know what the experience of these people are or are we assuming b/c they are people she went to school with they are not viable candidates? Even in my industry, I would hire someone with little or no experience for a position if I am confident they are capable of doing the job…and I have, including friends! What about all the Clinton issues…??? Not a big deal, won’t remember his people because he was a Democrat, right?

    Concerning Palin being Pro-life… I wonder how many Democrats have voted pro-choice to keep their numbers up however have a strong conviction against killing babies??? I bet that number would be astronimical if they would all tell the TRUTH!

    I like the fact that Palin isn’t ashamed nor afraid to state what her belief’s are. She is honest! She has also said she believes “the choice should be up to the state” and individual regarding some of those matters however we don’t see anyone saying great things about that do we?

    Marion: If you are not some made up blogger by Jim and if you truly are from Alaska, also under the leadership of Palin, I would LOVE to hear your “perspective of one who has had to experience the detrimental policies and world view of Palin”. (FACTS ONLY PLEASE…NO INTERPRETATION!)

    I don’t think anyone is above doing wrong whether it be personally, politically or spiritually and if FACTUAL DOCUMENTATION were to be presented that would support any of the adverse commentary I have been reviewing on this blog, I would carefully hesitate with consideration of my vote for Palin…however…I know I WOULD NOT vote for Obama irregardless!

  • Jim

    trish, I’m sorry to break it to you, but I made you up.

    We have been sourcing factual claims regarding Palin, even posting transcripts when necessary. You just don’t like them.

    Actually Jim, I just don’t like your way of thinking! I have spent the better part of my time at this site defending my spiritual belief’s and trying to figure out why you and a couple others on this blog are so stinking angry! I have never blogged…ever, prior to this site however I believe whole-heartedly that it is time for not being quiet anymore! If after today I choose to return to your site, I will share more and more knowledge of why it would be INSANE to choose Obama for President!

    1. Obama says he would meet unconditionally with the world’s worst dictators, from Ahmadinejad to Castro to Kim Jong Il. Obama’s lack of judgment is demonstrated by his pledge to meet, during his first year in office and without precondition, with the leaders of the world’s worst regimes, including Iran – the world’s chief state sponsor of terrorism.
    *****Doesn’t this strike you odd that he is so casual when making this statment? What would make a brand new president want to sit down so quickly with people that want to destroy our country knowing they would rather see him dead than look at him twice??? Too much comfort for me…makes me wonder if he already has an established relationship with some of these terrorist!!

    2. Obama says he will retreat from Iraq no matter what the situation on the ground is, and no matter what advice he receives from military commanders. ***That’s right, elect the man that says “it’s time for change!”… He is going to show you what change is all about! No matter what you think he should do…he is going to take it upon himself to do exactly what he wants to do no matter the consequences!!! What a great Leader!!!

    3. Caving to isolationist sentiment, Obama would reverse our path to lowering trade barriers to U.S. products. Obama opposes free trade agreements with Colombia and Korea, and would unilaterally renegotiate NAFTA. ****You think this is what our country needs to do???

    4. Obama proposes to increase federal spending, further increasing the burden that we will pass along to our children and grandchildren. ***FABULOUS!!! GROW THAT BIG GOVERNMENT AND HIRE ALL YOUR FRIENDS…GET PALIN BACK!!! I guess I need to start saving for my daughter’s retirement because when she is old enough to retire…there will be absolutely none of her tax dollars coming back to her!!!

    5. Obama voted for the same policies that created the problem. He voted for the energy bill promoted by President Bush and Vice President Cheney, which gave even more breaks to the oil industry. John McCain opposed it because we won’t achieve energy independence by repeating the mistakes of the last half century. ***Why I believe those Obama campaign signs depicting life size pictures of McCain and Bush should really have said “Obama and Bush = more of the same…Vote McCain if you want to see change”!!!!!!!

    6. Obama proposes to raise taxes on millions of Americans and small businesses. ***There goes our small businesses that provide millions of jobs! Maybe he will be able to offer all these small business owners big government jobs after they close their doors and while he is expanding our “BIG GOVERNMENT!!

    Yeah…that’s all I have to say about this for now!!!
