I'm a registered Democrat who's voted for Don Young a couple
of times now since residing in Alaska. A couple of comments he
made while in Ketchikan recently now have me scratching my head
and asking myself why on earth I would have voted for him in
the past. These same comments have helped me decide to vote against
him in the next election.
First, he can't figure out what Obama means when he says, "We
are one." Oh please, yeah, that's really hard to decipher!
Second, Young says he's against gun control. I get so sick of
that old tired argument the NRA and those loyal to that organization
espouse, which is in essence that the government wants to confiscate
all our guns, so we must stand against any type of gun control
Mr. Young, you may have accomplished lots of good for Alaska
during your many years as a Congressman, but with all due respect,
I think maybe you should retire.
