Alaskan Voices Disapproval of Palin

Author 2002
Message Constance Lavender

[Note: Below is the contents of a letter sent by a friend who lives in Alaska.]

Dear Friends and family,
Many of you in the lower 48 are hearing that we approve of McCains pick as a running mate, Sarah Palin, for this election. This is not true. Please look at and listen to this video of our rally yesterday here in Anchorage. We are as patriotic as anyone to be willing to get out on the streets and try to reach out to  everyone in America  to HEAR OUR VOICE and DO THE RESEARCH on this candidate. We believe Palin is not the right person to have in control of the United States. As you can see from just this rally over 1500 Alaskans showed up yesterday to speak out  and many people were there in spirit but were afraid to get out and speak out  for fear of violence from the right wing radio jock who encouraged his listeners to harass us. The rally was probably  the largest protest ever held in Alaska. It was peaceful and empowering.  It was planned by a few moms a few days ago and spread by word of mouth and emails.  
Please read between the lines of whatever information you are getting in  your local newspapers in support of Sarah Palin. Please  feel free to email me  up here for more information on her experience or lack of.
Our country, and our economy, our children's future, and our planet is in a crisis, and we are still at war.   Sarah Palin is simply Bush in a skirt and lipstick .  Don't be fooled by her.
Please watch the following videos and hear our heartfelt messages from Alaska.
