Sarah Palin Understands The Federal Government's Role

On Wednesday, September 3rd, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska accepted the Republican Party's nomination as the Vice Presidential candidate. She made a fantastic acceptance speech that was lauded by pretty much everyone. Even Senators Barack Obama and Joseph Biden, the Democratic Party's Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees liked the speech but offered the criticism that she didn't mention healthcare and college tuition.

Ok, I'll grant that she didn't mention those things but why would she? In my opinion she didn't fail to mention healthcare and college tuition because she doesn't think they're important issues. I personally believe that Sarah Palin didn't mention those things because she understands that healthcare and college tuition are not the domain of the federal government. That's right, it's not the federal government's job to provide healthcare and/or college tuition. She knows that just as anyone who has read the U.S. Constitution knows that. Apparently the Harvard educated lawyer Barack Obama and his Washington insider running mate need to read the U.S. Constitution and remember what the federal government's job is.

If you want the federal government to provide healthcare for everyone and provide college for your kids I say this to you...BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR!
