The Alaskan Independence Party which is apparently affiliated with the radical Constitution Party wants to secede from the union and form their own country.
It brings to mind the nutjobs in the Republic of Texas movement here in Texas who claim that Texas was never properly made a state and deny the authority of the U.S. government.
This isn’t just something out of Palin’s distant past either. Here is a video message she made for the group for their most recent convention:
Good luck, indeed. Why are their only 49 stars on your flag lapel pin, Gov. Palin?
Here is a quote from Joe Vogler, founder of the Alaska Independence Party that Sarah Palin has courted throughout her political career:
The fires of Hell are glaciers compared to my hate for the American Government, and I won't be buried under their damn flag.
It is really shocking that the Republican vice presidential candidate would have ever associated with such a radical, America-hating group.
