I am not a Palin fan, and if she wanted to speak at a Tallahassee Tea Party Event, there would be a lot of unhappy folks like me. . . .then again, we
need the press, we need the exposure, and the majority might decide to "sell out" and let her speak. Sad really.
We have turned away a lot of speakers that we didn't agree with, but it would be a very hard sell to convince the majority of members to turn away
such a popular key note speaker.
I can tell you this, no way I will ever vote for her. McCain lost my vote when he chose her as his running mate. I didn't know anything about her
at the time, and neither did he, but it was a popular decision thrown in his lap by his handlers and party, so it showed me who was really in charge!
I will never vote for someone that is not a strong and moral leader willing to make decisions based on their own internal compass, even if the
decisions are unpopular, and even if I disagree with them. We don't need politicians to vote according to polls. We could automate the whole dam
thing if that were the case. Put a computer in the White House with phone polling software and let it go to work. Call a couple of thousand random
people and then set policy according to "pop culture." Works for American Idol, why not?
