Sarah Palin is everything a free-thinker (libertarian) just has to love.
Sarah Palin pilots a plane, rides a motorcycle, fires an AK-47, wouldn't mind helping Alaska secede from the union, smoked marijuana when young, does not condemn teen pregnancy ... and knows how to run an election and run a government. (See the New Republic's Article: The Case Against the Case Against Palin)
Some libertarians are saying, "Let's elect her and hope John McCain decides he is too tired for the Presidency after all."
Barack Obama's people are teetering on the verge of insanity over Sarah's candidacy. Obama again allowed his monumental arrogance to surface by announcing his own experience far out shadows the experience of a mayor of a town of 9,000 population ... pretending the public is too dumb to know Sarah is governor of a state bordering on foreign countries. Let Sarah debate Obama!
"But Obama knows how to communicate!" Yes, to people whose lifeblood is holding grievances, people who love hearing that America is after all a shit house but somehow a President from a corrupt Chicago political machine can magically make America into a bread and circuses Roman Empire by taxing the bone marrow out of people (don't use the word "slavery").
As the above mentioned article points out, Sarah is really the great communicator with normal people who don't like pain and don't want slavery. If McCain allows Sarah to communicate, Obama becomes a tiny historical footnote. If McCain tries to suppress her communication, Obama becomes President and McCain is forgotten to history.
"But she is so ... uh ... libertarian!"
Well, not enough to satisfy libertarian purists. But have you noticed nothing satisfies purists. One wonders if purists enjoy pain even more than Obama's grievance lovers.
However, Sarah Palin is libertarian enough that we libertarians should want her speaking. We should advise the McCain camp to free her up and not try to muzzle her. We should tell our friends to pass the word: she's worth listening to.
Sarah Palin represents mainstream America. McCain has only the slightest understanding of mainstream America, while Obama lives in clueless socialist dream world. But Sarah knows mainstream America because she lives mainstream America. Sarah's emergence and the media's terrified reaction to her proves that mainstream America is more libertarian than most of us imagine, but has simply not had a voice on the national scene for a long, long time.
Freedom of communication? Let Sarah Palin speak!

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)
