During the interview, Hannity asked her to explain her recent comments about the possibility of leaving the party.

“If Republicans are going to act like Democrats, what’s the use in getting all gung ho about getting other Republicans in there?” she said. “We need people who understand the beauty of, the value of allowing the free market to thrive. Otherwise our country is going to continue to be over-regulated, driving industry away, driving jobs away.”

Palin warned that the U.S. was going to become a “bankrupt, fundamentally transformed country” unless Republican leaders stop “going along just to go along” with those in power.

“If Republicans aren’t going to stand strong on the planks of our platform, it does no good to get all enthused about them anymore.”

This is not the first time Palin has expressed frustration with the GOP. Two weeks ago, Palin wrote on her Facebook that the news of poor conditions for children at a holding center for undocumented, unaccompanied minors was about to push her to "renounce her Republican ties.”

Last year, Palin made a similar threat in an interview on Fox, saying if the GOP continues to back away from its platform planks, “we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other of the private majority parties that rule in our nation,” she said. “These are private parties. No one forces us to be enlisted.”
