Open Letter to Sen. Sullivan: What I want

By A. M. Johnson

Dear Editor Sitnews,

I don't go to public meetings any longer particularly with politicians. Not meant as a slap, rather, same o, same o. In reading Senator Sullivan's comments being in Ketchikan, particular the Deer Mountain logging issue, one of the many reasons for the civil war was the South recognizing that the North with all of its industrial power and resources would one day by the shear force of numbers, eliminate 'State Rights' as it was recognized during the day. (Slave ownership being but one subject)

Well they were correct, as we in Alaska are the 'New Slaves' in terms of control of our resources. Senator Sullivan chirped on it but behind the chirping is the knowing that Alaska is beholding to the Federal government and its vast number of minions who control us. A simple entry clerk has the power to stop you Senator, and they will prove it time and again.

So take the following as a frustration release knowing none of it would or will happen even with a Trump presidency as Senator Sullivan, the Establishment, will stop his efforts just like the entry clerk. Take my word for it in reflection.

(The following is a uploaded list-AMJ)

This is the list of 13 things that I as a senior citizen want!

This is why Trump is zooming ahead. He is at least talking about issues that most Americans are concerned about.

My mantra about Trump is this: We are usually in agreement with most of what he says but wish someone else was saying it. So true! We are getting older and our tickers aren't what they used to be . . . so here is my Special Bucket List for 2015,16 . . .

  1. Hillary: in prison!
  2. Put "GOD" back in America!!!
  3. Borders: Closed!
  4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else .
  5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW!
  6. Language: English only!
  7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights!
  8. Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before & during Welfare!
  9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens!
  10. Budget: Balance the damn thing!
  11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money! Charge them for our help! We need it here.
  12. Fix the TAX CODE! And most of all,
