I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.” and “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. “One of their goals is to become a separate nation. Their hate for the United States of America is well known. Todd Palin was a “registered” member of the Alaska Independence Party until 2002.
