In Iowa, Sarah Palin compared the federal debt she says shackles Americans to slavery.
The government, like a slick marketer, seductively offers “free” services, said Palin, a conservative provocateur and former vice presidential candidate who makes occasional, high-profile trips to politically-important Iowa.
“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China,” she said at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition's fall fundraiser at the State Fairgrounds Saturday night. “When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master.”
Cause what's a little slavery comparison that smacks of anti-Chinese racism between friends?
She said told the Iowans, who have the ear of presidential candidates, that they reflect what’s good about America. "You’re unpretentious, hardworking, humble, very candid. You tell it like it is and you’ll tell a politician exactly what it is that you’re thinking," she said.
Conservatism, she said, is partly about “moving the poor and the underemployed out of poverty and out from the shackles of dependency on government.”
“We’re not wards of the state but free men and women who can live good and productive lives without D.C.’s appointed best and brightest telling us what to do,” she said.
To recap, long-time government employee is telling everyone that government is evil, so vote for these people who promise not to govern to run your government. This advice coming from Gov. Quitty McHalfterm, who couldn't handle running Alaska. Sure, you can trust her judgment!
