Time to vote again
By Robert McRoberts
November 07, 2006
It sure seems like there has been a lot of voting this year.
Ten years ago Tony Knowles would not step up to the table and
stop Clinton from shutting down the mill. Knowles bought fast
ferries that don't work in Alaska. We were so ready to get rid
of him that we believed Frank Murkowski was the way to go. Then
we find out we can not take him any more. So where do we go from
here? I can not believe the ones that want Tony back, we had
him and we lost a lot of ground for using our resources. I see
John Kerry in him. Full of it. Sarah Palin sure is pretty but
I feel every one is telling her what to do. What it's all about
is the Republican and Democrat battle. Their people are sitting
there thinking their party is best.
America could break out in civil war on which party is best.
I am so sick of this. You need to vote for a person not a party.
For many years we have not been getting a thing done because
the two parties can not work together. That is why we all need
to vote for Mr. Halcro. He can work with ideas from both side
to make things even on both sides. The two party system is not
working. We need a three party or more so we can agree as a group.
And Don Young is too old and way to argent for me to take any
more. If we keep thinking the old way we will never move on to
where we should be. We need a road out of Ketchikan, and Petersburg
way more than a bridge to Gravina. And if you don't understand
that, maybe you better start smoking pot and look around at what's
going on here. Sure Ketchikan can not grow into a metropolises
without room to grow. But if you can not get here without paying
high prices, why stay? Ketchikan will only grow because it's
a hub zone supplying goods to other communities - just as a hundred
years ago when there were mines and canneries all around.
I do not know who's best. Whoever you want, it's your vote. So
vote and see if your vote counts.
