The Alaskan Independence Party is a political party in the U.S. state of Alaska that advocates an in-state referendum which includes the option of Alaska becoming an independent country.
The following is a video that offers evidence of Sarah Palin's relationship with the AIP. I realize, and can accept that minds, tastes, and associations can change over time. However, I have one question for Palin supporters. Do you believe that Sarah Palin was sincere in her statement about the AIP when she says, "Your party plays an important roll in our state's politics. I share your Party's vision of upholding the constitution of our great state."
I look at this association and praise of AIP in 2 possible ways:
- She believes or believed at that time in the views, values, and goals of the AIP.
- She didn't believe in this group and was simply pandering to them because of their influence in getting her elected and/or re-elected as Governor.
