I cannot support Ballot measure 1 as it was poorly written by outside environmental activist. We already have the most stringent environmental laws in the nation, written and approved by Alaskans, and that is good enough for me.
In addition, I could never vote for Mark Begich because of what happened to Sen. Ted Stevens. However, to his credit, he is running as a Democrat. I make this distinction because so many politicians this year are not embracing their true political ideology.
You may have noticed there is a host of candidates calling themselves “Independent.” But if you look at their campaign contribution/expense reports it becomes abundantly clear these “Independents” are really Democrats trying to fool voters.
It reminds me of the old idiom of Biblical origin “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Even as a child I remember thinking that it was unwise to trust the wolf and still feel that way to this day. For that and many other reasons I will NOT be voting for “Independents” Alyse Galvin, Shawn Butler or Paul Seaton. Do you trust the wolf?
