Sarah Palin, Neocon Puppet

The same old spend us into ruin support of the military-industrial complex and American Empire crap, this time from Sarah Palin, who gave her support to tea party candidates in the mid-term election, in an open letter to the new Republicans elected to Congress. It never changes. Screw the "Tea Party"!

On foreign policy and national security, I urge you to stick to our principles: strong defense, free trade, nurturing allies, and steadfast opposition to America’s enemies. We are the most powerful country on earth and the world is better off because of it.

Our president does not seem to understand this. If we withdraw from the world, the world will become a much more dangerous place. You must push President Obama to finish the job right in Iraq and get the job done in Afghanistan, otherwise we who are war-weary will forever question why America’s finest are sent overseas to make the ultimate sacrifice with no clear commitment to victory from those who send them.

You should be prepared to stand with the president against Iran’s nuclear aspirations using whatever means necessary to ensure the mullahs in Tehran do not get their hands on nuclear weapons. And you can stand with the Iranian people who oppose the tyrannical rule of the clerics and concretely support their efforts to win their freedom – even if the president does not.

You need to say no to cutting the necessities in our defense budget when we are engaged in two wars and face so many threats – from Islamic extremists to a nuclear Iran to a rising China. As Ronald Reagan said, “We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.”-An Open Letter to Republican Freshmen Members of Congress

Oh, and I like that by "whatever means necessary" regarding Iran. I guess that includes killing untold numbers of innocent Iranians "if necessary". Such a good Christian, aren't ya, sister Sarah?
