Alaskan Independent Bob Bird: Don’t trust Sarah Palin

Alaskan Independent Bob Bird writes to contact.ipr@gmail.com:

I have no way of analyzing Palin except from the standpoint of the knowledge I have become convinced about — namely, the Insiders who really control world events & politics have most likely compromised her.

Sent by Bob Bird to contact.ipr@gmail.com

Bob Bird says being anti-war cost him ‘redneck’ votes

In an open letter to blogger Steve Conn of Dissident Voices, Alaskan Independence candidate for U.S. Senate Bob Bird says, “I aggressively ran against foreign wars and adventurism, something Begich would not do, and certainly lost me some redneck votes. Pity.”

Independent and alternative party candidates play key role in four US Senate races still to be decided

According to CNN

Although Democrats gained a decisive majority in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, their hopes are fading for a filibuster-proof 60 seats.

From Ron Paul:

To Alaska, please

Subject: Please support Bob Bird for Senate

Dear Friend:

As I’m sure you know, Senator Ted Stevens was this week found guilty of corruption.
