âOur current governor, we mentioned at the last conference, the one we were hoping would get elected, Sarah Palin, did get elected. Thereâs a joke, sheâs a pretty good looking gal, thereâs a joke goes around weâre the coldest state with the hottest governor. (laughter) And there was a lot of talk about her moving up. She was an AIP member before she got the job as a mayor of a small town â that was a non-partisan job. But to get along and go along â she eventually joined the Republican Party, where she had all kinds of problems with their ethics, and well, I wonât go into that. She also had about an 80% approval rating, and is pretty well sympathetic to her former membership.â
Quote from AIP founder:
âThe fires of Hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government, and I wonât be buried under their damn flag!â
A great indicator for a democracy is a balanced and open environment for the multitude of opinions or statements. It is called freedom.
