Sarah Palin's unjust criticism

Updated on January 1, 2013

It seems that before Barack Obama's team even gets the chance, the US public is going to pick apart the decision of John Mccain to select Alaska governor Sarah Palin as His running mate. In a nation run by the currupt and wealthy, US citizens need to wake up and realize an opportunity when they see it, in my opinion.

All the wrong reasons

Its seems that all the reasons for Sarah's criticism, should be the reasons why we should see an opportunity. As a middle class American herself, Governor Palin has allot to offer US citizens. She's risen to power by battling corruption in her own state's Republican establishment, exposing misconduct by the state GOP chairman and challenging the incumbent GOP governor.

Governor Palin's inexperience

Governor Palin started her political career in 1992 as a Wasilla city councilor. She was elected to the first of her two terms as mayor in 1996. She made her mark on Alaska politics as a commissioner of a state oil and gas commission, when she tried to expose GOP officials with improper ties to the industry, and eventually resigning in 2004 after her complaints were ignored. Governor Palin has held the office of governor of Alaska for a little over a year and a half.

This lack of experience immediatlely found its way under the radar after John Mccain announced her as his running mate. This lack of experience may be just what US needs. Governor Pallin commented on this saying "I don't have 30 years of political experience under my belt but that's a good thing. I've never been part of a good-ol'-boys club."

Governor Palin also brings allot to the campaign. She is expected to appeal to Hilary Clinton voters and help reduce Barack Obama's popularity among women. She is a young, fresh face, full of energy to counter Obama's message of change, and is not connected to the current administration.

Governor Palin is a new candidate with a proven record of fighting corruption in politics, she comes from middle class America, she has an 80% approval rating in her state of Alaska, she is a small business owner, a christian, and a lifetime nra member.

It does sadden me that this election will be based on race, and gender instead of whats best for the nation, but the great thing about this nation is everyone has a vote and the freedom to base their vote on whatever they like.

      Nice hub. The liberal blogs are going nuts over the pick of Palin, and it seems we will get a new story out every day. This certainly isn't what we need.
