Thieves of the Alaska Permanent
by Don Hoff Jr.

Governor Frank Murkowski and Republican
Lawmakers are doing their best to swindle half of your $28 billion
Alaska Permanent Fund. The thieves want to dedicate half of its
proceeds to state and local governments! That is the most idiotic
idea the Governor and Republicans can come up with? Stupid minds,
come stupid ideas!
The State of Alaska officials are going to try to deceive you
to believe that a constitutional
amendment to change the way the $28 billion in the Permanent
Fund is spent to save the State and local government from being
in debt. Do not believe them.
The Permanent Fund belongs to the citizens of Alaska. It is the
citizens nest egg, savings
account, it pays property tax, vacations, buys clothes and food.
Governor Murkowski and his Republican Guard want to take that
from you. Governor Murkowski cuts down all your trees, caught
all your fish, pumps out all your oil and now he wants to steal
your Permanent Fund. The State of Alaska is going to try to Brain-wash
you to believe it is the right thing to do. But, it is not. What
about the future generations of children that will need their
share of the Permanent Fund?
The most logical idea is to bring back the State income tax to
balance the state's chronic budget shortfalls. Quit spending
money you do not have. That is what I have to do to save money
for something I want to purchase.
Alaskans need to elect a new Governor and new legislators that
will oppose tapping the Permanent Fund, shooting wolves from
planes, slaughtering herring in the Southeast and building projects
we can not afford like a $230 million dollar bridge to no-where.
This is only my own opinion.
