Support Joe Miller
By Liz Williams

I am unable to understand why it is wrong for Joe Miller to take
out of state funds but okay for Sen. Lisa Murkowski to do so.
There is nothing illegal about the funding in either case.
While some of the funding for both Murkowski and Mr. Miller came
from out of state, 100% of the votes came from Alaskans.
The majority of the voters in the Republican primary picked Joe
Miller to represent them in the General election. Republicans
have a closed primary so that their members, not the members
of the opposition, elect the representative who they believe
will most closely represent their views in Congress.
Murkowski called Joe Miller
an extremist, we think Mr. Miller is a Conservative who will
vote for a smaller more fiscally responsible Government and less
taxes. We think Mr. Miller would, while serving in Congress,
make the best decisions, not only for Alaska, but also the Nation
as a whole. We think Murkowski is a big Government,
politics as usual candidate, and that is why Murkowski was not
chosen. So when Murkowski calls Joe Miller names, do remember,
that you are also calling all the people of Alaska who voted
for him names also.
One of the great things about our system of Government is the
peaceful transition of power. No one likes to lose but
only one candidate can win, the loser should accept defeat, since
it is the will of the majority of voters, and go with dignity.
Murkowski's effort to make an end run around the primary results
because they are not in her favor and retain her power at any
cost, is not for the electorate, they have spoken. Murkowski's
renewed efforts for re-election are entirely for her.
Murkowski's behavior shows
that the voters were correct in their assessment of her values.
At this point a vote for Murkowski is also a vote for Scott McAdams.
