Governor Palin continues to stand behind Joe Miller. She sends this message via Facebook:
Friends, please join me saluting a patriot from Alaska who shocked the nation by proving the naysayers wrong.
Joe Miller’s record, intentions, and political philosophy represent the necessary direction Alaska and the rest of America must take to ensure prosperity and security. This decorated combat vet and graduate of West Point, Yale, and the University of Alaska understands the Constitution and will work tirelessly to defend it. He will reflect Alaska’s independent conservative conscience, ignore the influence of special interests, and work to restore America’s standing as the greatest force for good in this world. I believe we should positively contribute more to our society than we take from it, as that simple formula has made our country what it is today. And Joe’s message reflects that.
With this momentous victory, Alaska began a new chapter in our state’s history. We chose to help lead America to a bright new day with The Last Frontier at last exporting its pioneering spirit! I’m proud to see this take root because, after 51 years of statehood, Alaska will soar, thrive, and lead as we transition to “producer” status. Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of State, William Seward, saw this day coming. He understood our land’s potential, so he purchased this rich land from Russia to utilize Alaska’s strategic location, resources, and pioneering spirit. These attributes will help secure the union. The recent political change we ushered in can help fulfill our statehood compact and make the federal government keep its end of the bargain it struck with us when we joined the union. With the feds holding title to most of our land up here, it’s time they allow Alaska to reach her potential and help secure America. Joe will fight for our opportunities.
Joe has won his primary, but he now needs our help to raise funds for the general election. Please join me in donating any amount you can spare to Joe’s moneybomb by clicking here. He can lead once he gets to D.C., but he needs our help to get there. Please give him a hand. Joe won’t let us down.
