-- pale so Sarah you're you're a government person.
How did you learn that.
-- heaven forbid mommy government personhood and by the way.
I thank you spoke to an -- dog -- -- -- about out of it last night that light blue cross country from.
New York back to Alaska excellent book I really got me excited about.
And some solutions that.
It at least -- John espouse and more and more of voters need to get -- get a hold of this idea that no government isn't the solution like Reagan said government too often is the problem.
And -- I wanna argue with you on one point though that you made specifically in the -- and and hopefully we'll get to that but.
In the meantime I'll tell yet at the examples that you get throughout this book really shed light on how nonsensical.
Government is in -- mean.
That its role is some.
Way beyond what our constitution allows especially.
The federal centralized government to be and -- The people you're hanging around with this week on The Today Show all the -- all all those socialists that they have no clue about these ideas.
You know what this is all are also John as long as we continue as voters to keep sending people to Washington DCDs Yahoo!'s who basically -- just promising to bring home more of the bacon for their districts for.
Areas then we have no one to blame but says as voters I don't -- in Alaska specifically.
That has -- campaign promises -- congressional delegation is.
They bring home more bacon than the next guy I would -- him -- not this.
And Alaska is only usually libertarian state least compared to the other states.
And you've been sympathetic to Ron Paul and some of these libertarian ideas does that include things like.
Legalization of sex work prostitution for adults.
Small personal when we just talk about the fiscal issues let me give you an example of appear in Alaska when I put the -- wash on the bridge to nowhere when I was -- governor.
I was publicly chewed out -- -- congressional delegation.
But and that that delegation letting the press no and and the press let that voters know.
That I was going to make their job more difficult.
In bringing home more money to Alaskan of course I was trying to make the point but you know our country's gonna be insolvent didn't happen.
-- federal government won't have money to.
Share with the last if we keep going down the road that we're going it -- relating to debt to the tune of three million dollars a minute now that's where we are Don we're not going to be able to sustain this.
Three million dollars a minute is a good clear way to make people think about it but you.
You didn't answer my -- has stood on the more uncomfortable social issues drugs prost -- Yeah you know and I and in you you take even more of a stronger.
And that the libertarian view than I do want some of those issues like.
The war on drugs I happen to believe that it -- what we need to continue to do all that we can't to.
-- -- drug use specially with our -- I would like to see -- law enforcement prioritize its time and resources.
And not go out busting guy in his house may be smoking a joint who's not do anybody else any market.
And in the meantime go on find the bad guys in a unit try to try to help but keep society safe that -- -- Common sense.
Or I'm dropping that in moving to something where we agree I think -- hunter I don't know if he got to the part of the book where we talk about if you wanna save tigers eat thumb.
Which isn't exactly true but it's being shown that these conservation efforts have not worked tigers are disappearing in Asia about where people are allowed to own tigers they have.
The tribe controlling those tigers to allow tourism or even -- -- Then the local people work to fight the poachers and -- the animals do you agree with that.
You had really good points in that chapter about conservation.
And -- you gave a good example about the -- also you know once that such an endangered species now what's -- it we were able to privatize basically the management.
They are now relatively speaking in.
This is the point that I would didn't want -- argue a little bit because as a commercial fisherman what I have seen firsthand is for instance.
Japanese trawlers coming in and reaping the bottom of the ocean floor before there was strict regulation on overfishing and these Japanese trawlers with any.
Mile long net being able to over -- and -- waste the -- catch.
The rest of us would -- as commercial fishermen who would sit there saying well pretty soon there is not going to be -- that -- species left for us to help feed the rest of the world.
So how is it -- ending but -- -- you have the answer.
How can government managed -- sustainability -- four abundance for future use of eight commonly held resource like.
While it's a problem and that's why we call -- the tragedy of the commons when nobody owns and everybody takes as much as they can get -- the only way is somehow to give people some sort of ownership right over this part of the -- -- This many fish and my understanding is that's been done -- lobsters but it's tougher in the ocean.
With that in overly.
We we have to make sure that government has some appropriate resource then to -- -- and tell you we figure out a better way to get people to.
Not abuse -- resource or abuse the environment.
How is it that we're going to allow government to efficiently use -- a limited resource that we have that's tax dollars.
We do that by -- -- people who will engaged in common sense and quit wasting money on all these other frivolous.
Burden some over reaching aspects which I'd say is about 90% of what the federal government is engaged and.
Governor Pailin thanks for joining us thanks for rethinking my block.
It's an excellent market.
So what -- it is that you wrote -- here that people need to understand is that.
Your intuition and attempt to -- did you tempts us all to believe that politicians will eventually wise up and come up with a regional budgets -- that America won't go broke.
But what reality teaches us as you pointed out John is that the government's budget really have little to do -- bookkeeping cost benefit analysis reality or even sanity.
We got to change that -- we're going under -- right.
If -- Governor Palin.
I sure hope we change it.
