I signed up because it was time to stand up and defeat Barak Obama for reelection and elect a conservative majority to both houses of the state legislature.

For two gruesome nights this week I listened for hour after hour as the Senate Resources Committee took public testimony on ACES reform.

The one thing that actually stood out to me was how many people parroted the “we need MEANINGFUL reform” line. What exactly does “meaningful” mean in this debate?

Like the rest of the nation, Alaskans have been discussing and debating the merits of school choice for decades. Many parents say they would like having the option of choosing non-government schools for their kids; teachers’ unions say they hate the idea.

The Alaska Legislature is currently considering a bill that would join Alaska in an interstate compact changing the way the United States President is elected.   I have serious concerns about its true, negative, effects.

When I told the folks at the Northern Right I was heading to D.C. for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), they said I would be welcome to submit a piece reflecting on the conference.

Yet another bad piece of legislation from Hollis French and the "Senate Bipartisan Majority."  This one allocates Alaska's electoral votes based on the national vote total in a presidential election rather than what Alaskans vote for.
