I feel I must tell you Jim, that it has seemed for a long time that the Sarah Palin threads belonged under a Religon topic as caucus only.
I’ve had to deal with the impact of Sarah Palin longer than most on this board knew of her name.
The results of her policies cut business, increased social spending in Alaska. The taxes placed on oil companies stiffled new capital investment while at the same time it was booming in Canada and the lower 48.
After leaving Alaska when her tax program slashed new projects, I saw my previous engineering group fall to 1/3 its size.
Once again, I have committed my work back to Alaska. I type this while back in Anchorage. The prominent hope for the oil companies and many, many associated businesses, is the draconian taxes called ACES put in place during her administration will finally be brought to an end.
