These were set out in a step by step reply to Senator Warren's points. I reproduce Governor Palin's responses without the references to Senator Warren as they stand, by themselves, as a core set of conservative positions.
Of course they are not the totality of core positions as they are limited to the response a "progressives" positions but they are extremely significant as an indication of strongly held conservative thinking and, of course, as examples of Governor Palin's core beliefs.
It is important, I believe, to set these out in a stand alone setting as if or when Governor Palin runs for high office they will serve as a touchstone for supporters and a rebuttal to opponents. Conversely, if Governor Palin chooses not to run, they can stand as a positions to measure prospective candidates, especially presidential candidates, by.
