Governor Palin: Born Again Secessionist?

In a column in his blog "Political Punch," Jack Tapper, a senior ABC news correspondent stated the following, " Officials of the Alaskan Independence Party say that Palin was once so independent, she was once a member of their party, which, since the 1970s, has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether or not residents of the 49th state can secede from the United States." If true, this would blow up Governor Palin's nomination, but more importantly blow up Senator McCain's bid to become president.

In the video presented below, Governor Palin is seen giving warm greetings to the Alaskan Independence Party this Year. Her support for this party is quite evident and supports the assumption that Governor Palin may be a born-again secessionist. Like many other Americans, I was under the assumption that the civil war had settled the issue of secession.

I have taken care not to present this as a fact, because there is not sufficient evidence at this time to make such an assertion. In fact, I hope this proves untrue for it would be a disgraceful event in the history of this country.
