What does America have that Asia doesn't have? The answer is, Sarah Palin - not Sarah Palin the vice presidential candidate, but Sarah Palin the "hockey mom" turned small-town mayor and reforming Alaska governor. All the PhDs and MBAs in the world can't make a capital market work, but ordinary people like Sarah Palin can. Laws depend on the will of the people to enforce them. It is the initiative of ordinary people that makes America's political system the world's most reliable.
Toqueville analyzed America the same way too in 1848.
Capitalism works in America because of the Sarah Palins of America from the first successful pilgrims to the newest legal immigrant today! America survive for over two centuries because of the Sarah Palins of America from George Washington to the G W Bush of today!
On Nov 4, 2008, voters of America will decide if the Sarah Palins of America will have a political voice for all the world to see.
