Don Young's comments
By Karen Ramsey


February 23, 2008

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 whatsoever.

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.
