Would Sarah Palin support Measure G?

Original post made by observer on Apr 25, 2009

We've seen many postings both pro and against Measure G on this forum. The issue has tended to have a local focus (understandably). But it might be instructive to ask what prominent national figures would say regarding this tax proposal.

I therefore ask, what would Sarah Palin say to question of whether citizens of Pleasanton should supporting increasing taxes in this specific way? Would she be for it, or against it? Why or why not?

She has said she is a supporter of education, but also a supporter of tax cuts. How would she reconcile these conflicting needs?

She has said she supports teaching Creationism along side the theory of evolution to give students a chance to debate the issue.

A future column could ask the same question for Barack Obama or other leaders (maybe the founding fathers).

What general principals regarding liberty, taxation, and American values apply to the issue.

Like any political figure, she'd waiver with the wind.

I can see no logical reason for this post.

Not sure about Sarah Palin, but I think Ronald Reagan would probably say no. Fiscal discipline first and that sort of thing. Vouchers?

Pointless hypothetical question.

Why not ask if Jesus Christ or Gautama Buddha or Miss USA would be in favor of the parcel tax?

Does PUSD support sex education?

I don't think this is really a Republican vs. Democrat issue.

I personally believe, that U.S. Americans,
are unable to do so,
because uh,
some, people out there, in our nation don't have maps.
and uh…
I believe that our education like such as in South Africa,
and the Iraq,
everywhere like such as…
and, I believe they should uh,
our education over here,
in the U.S. should help the U.S.
or should help South Africa,
and should help the Iraq and Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future,
for us.

When an 'out of town - observer' wants to know what an 'out of town - governor' thinks... you know they're getting worried.

Most Pleasanton folks I talk with are in agreement. Manage with what you've got! Don't waste it and then try to get more. The well's run dry. Not one penny more!!

Since PW doesn't carry comics, this thread substitues nicely.

Stu, I also can see no logical reason for this post.

Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

This is the worst post in the history of the Pleasanton Weekly. Palin is too busy shooting at wolves from her helicopter to worry about public schools.

I'm sure Palin and David Duke wouldn't like the tax.
