STEVE BEREN ON CANDIDACY OF SARAH PALIN
Statement by Steve Beren, August 29, 2008
I am enthusiastic about the selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be the Republican candidate for Vice President. Her nomination is a brilliant choice! She's demonstrated a strong devotion to the pro-life cause, she's a proven and effective fighter against corruption and for government reform, and she's a knowledgeable advocate for common-sense policies to achieve energy independence. She's a member of the National Rifle Association; her husband is a production operator in Alaska's oil fields and a member of the United Steelworkers Union; her Army son is days away from shipping off to serve our nation in Iraq.
While Barack Obama offers empty phrases and platitudes without substance, Palin offers an established record of success in reducing taxes, taking on corruption, and putting into practice her conservative values.
Will the Democrats raise the issue of "experience"? Don't even go there - She has thirteen years of elected experience, with more executive leadership than Obama and Joe Biden combined. True, Biden has been a Senator since the Nixon administration - but most of his experience has been in raising taxes and blocking qualified judicial nominees.
I've often said that the Republican Party is stronger, more effective, and more unified when we remain committed to our conservative values. The nomination of Sarah Palin to be our next Vice President is an important step in the right direction, and I welcome her candidacy with enthusiasm. Now, I'm more motivated than ever about promoting Republican policies - limited government, lower taxes, constitutional principles, and individual responsibility - right in the heart of liberal Seattle!
