Update 2014Sarah Palin's Social, Economic, And International Political Positions; A Compendium

UPDATE FROM "ACE OF SPADES" OCTOBER 2014




Here is a list of the social and economic policy positions of Sarah Palin. They are a compilation of statements from interviews, speeches (delivered both nationally and internationally) and are also a record of her achievements whilst in office.

The absolute wealth of policy statements give the lie of course to the constant leftist and media theme that Palin "only talks in platitudes' or that she is "dumb". The reality, as clearly show to anyone with even a modicum of a balanced outlook is, that in total contrast to the leftist nonsense Palin has in fact produced a wealth of statements.

There would be few people in public life whose ideas and actions have been so thoroughly scrutinized in fact. And the fact that the left is reduced to antagonistic and childish personal attacks on her shows by their very actions that her policy and history stands up to the most minute examination. 

It is perfectly valid of course that these policies and actions can be the subject of disagreement, if not vehement disagreement. That is, after all, the normal cut and thrust of politics. But there is no place for rancour and hate at this site and any such comments will be dismissed. I trust that on the other hand this site will be a place for honest discussion (hopefully encompassing enthusiastic support) but of course allowing for honest disagreement.

Here is a significant compilation from Dr. Fay of the Sarah Palin Information Blog. The links can be clicked on to open a wealth of materiel relating to the headline category. For another view of Palin's policy ideas Wikipedia AT THIS LINK also has a compilation "The political positions of Sarah Palin"

'Setting the Palin Record Straight' (by Jedediah Bila; 3/17/2011)

Since September 2010 alone, Sarah Palin has penned commentary on such topics as the unrest in Libya, the protests in Wisconsin, Obama’s 2012 budget proposal and State of the Union address, getting tough with Iran and standing with Iranians who seek democracy, challenging the specifics of President Obama’s energy policy, the omnibus spending bill, defeating the New START, opposition to state bailouts, tax policy, a message to Republican freshmen in Congress, opposition to quantitative easing, and more. She has repeatedly been a leading voice—via television appearances and speaking engagements—against the dangers of ObamaCare and the risks of President Obama’s approach to energy.
Let’s take a look at a few samples of Palin’s written commentary:
On Obama’s 2012 budget proposal: “The fine print reveals a White House proposal to increase taxes by at least $1.5 trillion over the next decade. If you want to know how minuscule their proposed $775 million-a-year budget ‘cuts’ really are, please look at this chart. The proposed cuts are so insignificant—less than 1/10 of 1% of this year’s $1.65 trillion budget deficit—that they are essentially invisible on the pie chart. That speaks volumes about today’s budget.”
On Iran: “Much more can be done, such as banning insurance for shipments to Iran, banning all military sales to Iran, ending all trade credits, banning all financial dealings with Iranian banks, limiting Iran’s access to international capital markets and banking services, closing airspace and waters to Iran’s national air and shipping lines, and, especially, ending Iran’s ability to import refined petroleum. These would be truly ‘crippling’ sanctions.”
On energy: “Right now Beltway politicos are quibbling over cutting $61 billion from our dangerously bloated $3.7 trillion budget. Allowing drilling in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas will enrich federal coffers by $167 billion without raising our taxes. If we let Harry Reid keep his ‘cowboy poetry,’ would the White House consider letting us drill?”
On quantitative easing: “If the President was serious about getting the economy moving again, he’d stop supporting the Fed’s dangerous experiments with our currency and focus instead on what actually works: reducing government spending and boosting business investment through good old-fashioned supply-side reforms (cutting taxes and reducing overly burdensome regulations). Simply running the printing presses in order to avoid paying off your debts is no way for a great nation to behave.”
My question to the critics: How is that commentary lacking in intellect? How do you find her active leadership role in these important debates to be unpresidential?"
