Sarah Palin keeps saying some pretty strange things. Her remarks Saturday at a campaign rally in Iowa suggested Sen. Barack Obama would turn the US into a Communist country. These deranged remarks surpassed even her idiotic fruit fly research comments. Either she has gone over the edge or she thinks her audience is comprised of morons.
As reported by Sam Stein at Huffington Post, Palin told the crowd:
"See, under a big government, more tax agenda, what you thought was yours would really start belonging to somebody else, to everybody else. If you thought your income, your property, your inventory, your investments were, were yours, they would really collectively belong to everybody. Obama, Barack Obama has an ideological commitment to higher taxes, and I say this based on his record... Higher taxes, more government, misusing the power to tax leads to government moving into the role of some believing that government then has to take care of us. And government kind of moving into the role as the other half of our family, making decisions for us. Now, they do this in other countries where the people are not free. Let us fight for what is right. John McCain and I, we will put our trust in you."
How much longer do we have to listen to this ill-informed woman spout nonsense about subjects which elude her intellectual grasp? The thought of her being anywhere near the president's office is bone-chilling.
