Former Alaska Gov. and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said over the weekend that “it’ll be like slavery” when the U.S. national debt comes due.

“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China,” she said at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition’s fall fundraiser, according to the Des Moines Register. “When that money comes due — and this isn’t racist — but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master.”

Mrs. Palin also told the crowd of about 750 that conservatism, in part, is about “moving the poor and the underemployed out of poverty and out from the shackles of dependency on government.”

“We’re not wards of the state but free men and women who can live good and productive lives without D.C.’s appointed best and brightest telling us what to do,” she said.

The tea party activist also derided Republicans who “waved the white flag of surrender” in the recent congressional standoff over defunding President Obama’s health care overhaul.

There was also a warning that Christmas is under attack; she has a new book out on the subject: “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”

“I say in a very jolly Christmasy way: ‘Enough is enough,’” she said. “Enough is enough of this politically correct police out there that is acting to erode our freedom to celebrate and exercise our faith.”

The book also includes a moose chili recipe, the Register reported.
