Alaskans - A Message to DC on Nov 2nd, 2010
by Ken Bylund


September 21, 2010

A quote by Anthony McAuliffe, on December 22, 1944 -- his official reply to General Von Luttwitz's demand that he surrender the 101st Airborne at Bastogne, aka, The Battle of the Bulge... "To the German Commander... Nuts! The American Commander."

This is the message a majority of Americans seem to be sending to the politicians at Federal, State, and Local levels; You have failed... you are fired! California, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin... are insolvent and expected to file for bankruptcy. One third of the population of the United States.

Leon Trotsky describes his close up and personal view of The Russian Revolution; a smart man, some say a genius... who was dead wrong. Dead, because he was murdered on August 21, 1940, in his exiled home in Mexico... by Stalin. In his book, Trotsky tells us of 'his dream' with a chilling similarity of purpose and aloof dismissal of consequences to those who stand in the way of a malevolent goal. Curious, what do those who support Fascism think will happen to them if the flames of revolution consume this [once] rich country? Think you will have a cushy place in that Orwellian bee-hive?

In 1916 - there was no need to hide their goals - because few, if any - saw what was coming. Now, with the Internet, TV, radio, etc., it is necessary for revisionist fascists to hide that dark goal; 2,400 page bills that no one reads... become law? The muddy water surrounding bailouts [with our money], aka government buyouts, with ones and zeros, doesn't even require printing money, or backing up a promised investment with gold. Just wild promises, those same dreams of providing everyone with free goods, healthcare, homes, food, jobs, and long vacations... what ever you want... promise.

We are the mice in the grainery - and no-one is working in the fields!

The Tea Party are declared to be extremists; Joe Miller is "Too Extreme for Alaska"... say what? General McAuliffe, was he too extreme? Anyone think he should've surrendered? The French had a less extreme government, that expedient position taken following the attack by Nazi [socialist] Fascists in WWII -- they called themselves "Vichy". They were not too extreme... and now -- it goes for us.

Time to take control of our state oriented constitutional heritage, Alaska!

How's that socialism working for Europe?
