Palin republican VP
Certainly an interesting move, but just because the media is talking about it doesn't mean there is a taste for more conservative hypocrisy. A servant of the oiligarchy like McCain, Palin has nothing to say about the future. The pursuit of private property and profit, which is the principle of moral decay as described by Plato in The Republic more than 2500 years ago, guides all republics through their phases from rule by military and priests, to rule by the monied and the police, to democratic consumerism to rule by a popular tyrant. Conservative back-pedalling will not restore the dying oiligarchy. They're on the wrong side of history. Period. Dinosaurs die.
