Sarah Palin Compares Federal Debt To Slavery

Speaking at a conservative fundraiser in Iowa on Saturday evening, former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin compared the United States' debt to slavery, claiming that younger Americans will be shackled by the country's spending.

The Des Moines Register's Jennifer Jacobs reports that Palin, speaking at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition's fall fundraiser, warned of the allure of "free stuff" offered by the government.

"This free stuff, so seductive. Why do you think marketers use free stuff to bring people in? Free stuff is such a strong marketing ploy," Palin said. "But didn't you all learn too in Econ 101 there ain't no such thing as a free lunch? Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China."

Palin continued, "When that note comes due -- and this isn't racist.. but it's going to be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to be beholden to a foreign master. Because there is no plan coming out of Washington, D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt."

12. exactly!

She has no idea what the hell she is talking about!
I just finished reading "Twelve Years A Slave," by Solomon Northup, and that was a very humbling experience for me. It is something that Sarah Palin can not even fathom.

I grow to loathe this woman every time she opens her mouth.

I would never suggest that she read the book - she doesn't even read newspapers.

20. you have a point...

she wouldn't get through the first chapter. It's a tough read and it doesn't square with her version of "real life."

Keep Republicans from controlling the country. That is our plan. That will solve our debt problem. Period.


Dumbass.

3. I compare her to that which I cleaned up in my yard after my dogs...

I'd call her worst politician ever, but she does have some competition from Quayle, Dubya, Gohmert, Bachmann et al....

6. She doesn't need a clue. No one who listens to her cares about one.

She repeats to them what they already "know",

The event was a fundraiser -- an event that exists for the purpose of separating people from their money. She's not going to say anything that might slow them down.

17. Actually, how much debt has Obama erased?

I'm not aware that the federal debt has gone down under president Obama.

22. He's slowed down the rate of increase

What he has done is halved the deficit.

24. Which is great, but it's not what the poster said.

There might be a billion reasons Palin deserves to be called a "stupid fuck" but this post seems to be calling her out for not knowing something the poster doesn't seem to know either, how much DEBT (not deficit) Obama has erased.

7. Coincidentally, I just compared Sarah Palin to a box of rocks.

 

Results: the box was smarter.

11. Sick of these assholes always...

comparing some situation to slavery.Like she knows anything about it. If slavery repeated itself here in the US. She will be there at the auction making her bid.


So she thinks slaves were seduced by the "allure" of "free" stuff they were getting from their masters? WTF

13. "Reagan proved that deficits don't matter" - Dick Cheney

 

How come Sarah never quotes her hero Cheney's observation about her god, Reagan?

14. Fuck off, cow.

Yes, yes, it's all about the debt, and our children's future, and gosh, wouldn't that be just terrible?!?!

But even suggest that it might not be a good idea to hand the next generation (and all generations to come) a world with an energetically destabilized climate, more violent weather, rising seas, flooded cities and a growing inability to feed ourselves, and you're a Volvo-driving whacko treehugger in league with Al Gore, ZOG, the Communists, the Fascists, the Fabian Society and Hasbro to crush 'Murica.

Try to to take action in hope that that things in the future might be slightly less than the full-on awful now emerging for all to see, and you're out to destroy Freedumb (tm). See also "Philippines" "Haiyan", "Leyte" and "Category 5" for further updates and information.

As I noted above, fuck off, you stupid cow.

The less attention we give her, the sooner she will go away.

But really, who the fuck cares what she says?

21. What is the GOP's obsession with slavery and the Civil War?

It's like since Obama became president, almost every analogy I hear from them is related to those 2 events now.

23. If a Republican was president Palin would tell us debt is good b/c it fuels growth

You remember: Reagan proved deficits don't matter...so long as a Republican is president.
