News of Mrs Palin's former membership comes as the latest in a string of potentially embarrassing disclosures about her past.
The party has lobbied since the 1970s for the right to hold a referendum on whether Alaska should secede from the United States. Its motto, "Alaska First", contrasts sharply with the John McCain campaign slogan: "Country First."
It seeks "the complete repatriation of the public lands, held by the federal government, to the state and people of Alaska" and aims to be "self-sufficient" by using profits from Alaskan oil and gas resources. It claims that the vote held in 1958 which led to Alaska becoming the 49th state of the US was corrupt and did not offer a proper choice.

It keeps getting more interesting by the minute. The sceptic in me is questioning the background check by the GOP on this lady - why if all of this is going to come out, pick HER? In one weekend we have this, the brige to no where, her continuing support of an indited criminal in Sen. Allard, out of wedlock daughter (check out Drudgereport for a post on the self confessed "Redneck" who knocked up her daughter), ties to dirty oil deals, and so on. What next and why? Just imagine if McCain goes down and she is running the country. Dobson and Rove would have a field day.
