From Palin's Facebook page.
Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines" between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.
The GOP is thinking that the caucus is getting so small, that they need to run someone from the other team to keep the seat. Bunk. Run good candidates who can balance a checkbook and can string a few sentences together and you have a winner right now. Budget busting spend and taxers are not looking good now or in 2010.
