HANNITY: Look. The bottom line is the Math isn’t there. But the mindset of the country has shifted and people want free stuff from the government. You said to the Republicans, though, and this was at the top of the program we were debating this. You said, Republicans don’t go wobbly, don’t be a bunch of wusses as it relates to this. And I see some weakening among the Republicans and they feel they’ve got to go and get along. They fear they may lose the pr battle. What is your response to that in a little more detail?
PALIN: Well, I guess I shouldn’t call politicians names.
HANNITY: Why not?
PALIN: So, I apologize for calling the wobbly ones wusses. Because that distracts from the point that has to be made. And the point is that we are a bankrupt country. Sixteen trillion dollars in debt, and with entitlement future looking, we’re really were 60, 70, 80 trillion dollars in debt. There isn’t enough money in the world to pay back the future generations that we’ve stolen from and foreign countries that we have borrowed from and through quantitative easing, the money that’s been printed out of thin air, so I say Republicans, go back to what the planks in your platform represent. It represents reining in government, putting back the power and the responsibility in the individual, not in the state, not in government again that gets us towards socialism.
What goes beyond socialism, Sean, is communism. And I know, you know, I’m going to get slammed for speaking so bluntly about what’s going on here, but that’s exactly what is going on. Just, you know, read history. See how these very mighty empires have fallen because of government being so burdensome on the people and taking away opportunity and freedom. Taking away an individual’s work ethic. That leads to the downfall of that country, of that empire.
