Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!*

There are a lot of fishy things going on with Sarah Palin. I know I am not American, many people might say "non of your business" about the upcoming election. Truth is I see myself as an "Earth resident" more than I see myself belonging to any country, and that's the only reason why I care about the election in the USA. American citizens have a responsibility to choose the candidate who will do this world some good, because obviously the USA is one of the biggest, most influential countries in the world. Because I am not American, I do not have a leaning towards neither the republicans nor the democrats, so I can confidently say that I have a very objective viewpoint about all this. I do not agree with most thoughts of Sarah Palin, and I am appalled by the way that she has a tendency to impose her beliefs to those who do not share her thoughts. I'll clearly say it, I think she is a future fascist. Sarah Palin claims she is pro-life, but how can one be pro-life when she takes joy in killing animals? I do not believe a person can be religious when s/he doesn't have an appreciation and respect for God's all creatures. Animals are not as valuable as humans, some might say. You have to be really blinded to not see the incredible design, life, beauty, sense of community in animals. I am particulary fond of wolves, I am delighted by their nobility, their social structure, and how they have inspired folklore and mythology. When I came across this petition at, Sarah Palin finally pushed my button. Anyone who can stomach the killing of helpless puppies in their den execution style is capable of doing horrible, horrible things. Americans, please do not bring this nightmare of a "human" upon us Earth residents. See the article below:

"Sarah Palin: Alaska's Dead Wolf Pups Demand Justice!

This summer, Alaska wildlife agency personnel staked out a known wolf denning site – a practice that is illegal under Alaska law – and, using helicopters, gunned down 14 adult wolves from the air.
When they landed, they found 14 helpless pups in the nearby dens – infant wolves just weeks old – and methodically shot each one in the head. 28 wolves gunned down in all.
Due to a loophole in federal law, Alaska is the only state in the U.S. where a few hunters still use aircraft to shoot wolves or chase them to exhaustion before landing and shooting them point blank. But the practice of "denning" – the killing of wolf young in the den – is prohibited even under Alaska law. This killing of 14 wolf pups disturbs even longtime hunters in Alaska.
During her two years as governor, Sarah Palin proposed a $150 bounty for the severed foreleg of each killed wolf and introduced legislation to make it even easier to use aircraft to hunt wolves and bears. But it's time that Governor Palin call for a thorough investigation into the killing of these 14 wolf pups, and bring any Alaska employees who acted illegally to justice.
Governor Palin presents herself as a pro-ethics reform politician. Please sign our petition to hold her accountable to her promises and send an email to your friends to spread the word. "

Bu yazı daha ziyade Amerikalılara sesleniyor. Alaska'da kurt yavrularının inlerinde kafalarına kurşun sıkılarak öldürülüşü, bunun Amerika başkan yardımcısı adayı Sarah Palin'le olan ilgisi, bu kadının ürkütücülüğü hakkında.

Went and signed the petition and a couple more. Thanks for the heads up on this issue. The killing of defenseless animal is unacceptable and she should be held accountable for what happens in her state. It does make you wonder what the heck she would do if ever elected president. (SCARY) MB

Mrs. Palin's brand of willful ignorance is beyond scary; your concern is well-founded. Please don't let anyone tell you that having an observing nature and critical mind in none of your business.
