Sarah Palin said history could repeat itself and a third party could be created if Republicans don’t adhere to their principles, Fox News reported.

When asked on Fox News if she would consider creating a third party, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said, "If history is an indication it is a possibility. If the Republicans don't remember what the planks in the platform represent . . . That is opportunity to prosper and thrive in the most exceptional nation in the world.”

She added that “we do that through a free market. If the Republicans become like the liberal left and Democrats, I wouldn't be surprised if history didn't repeat itself."

Palin drew a comparison to the Whig Party, saying, "Look what happened in the mid 1800’s. The Whig party went away and the Republican Party surfaced,” she explained. “Because the electorate got sick and tired of the party fighting for power and not doing the will of the people."

She described the tea party movement as a “grassroot of independent Americans. They know that they are taxed enough already. They want to shrink government and make it smarter and make it as less relevant to us in our lives as possible.”

Palin will be in Gilbert, Ariz., on Monday to show support for Republican congressional hopeful Kirk Adams and to stump for incumbent GOP congressmen Jeff Flake and Paul Gosar, according to the Los Angeles Times.
