Incumbent US Senator Lisa Murkowski (R, AK ) is up for reelection next year. Given the absolute mess that the US Senate has turned into, perhaps it is time to explore a few observations and rumors about the upcoming campaign.

Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing time after time and expecting different results. We see that once again with Senator Bill Wielechowski’s (D, IBEW) op-ed over the weekend decrying senate budget cuts as somehow being against Alaskan values.

If any of us needed another reminder that the US Senate is being led by a bunch of clueless demagogues comes a failed vote to overturn the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby opinion.

The left has suggested that we kill the electoral college for electing our President. A few states have started a compact to ignore the election results in their state if the national popular vote favors another candidate. Either change would encourage fraud in presidential elections. I offer an amendment that strengthens the electoral vote and discourages fraud.

The electoral college

Our mode of electing the President of the United States is a bit strange. Many people believe the Electoral College is an obsolete part of the Constitution. They think we would be better off eliminating it and determining the winner based on the nationwide popular vote.

The democrat majority in the US Senate last week decided that an extension of unemployment benefits was more important than job creation.  With 92 million Americans permanently out of the work force, this seems more of an exercise in manufacturing new democrat voters than taking care of people in need.

Tuesday this week, the democrat majority in the US Senate joined by six Republicans voted to stop debate on legislation to spend another $6 billion to extend unemployment benefits.

When you control the federal budget, you control the lives, livleyhood and property of all Americans.  the trick is how to balance it without robbing Peter to purchase the votes of Paul.

What is a balanced budget amendment?

The Congressional appropriation process is broken. To promote less wasteful government funding this column attempts to:

  • revitalize the House of Representative’s origin function,
  • eliminate omnibus appropriation bills, and
  • provide for an orderly continuation procedure.
     

Why address the appropriation process?

It often appears that all the forces of government have a bias in favor of higher taxes and higher expenditures. This bias is very apparent in the appropriations process. The process of compromise among the House, Senate, and President often results in taxation and spending higher than any one of the three would chose.

When it comes to budget cuts, democrats take care of their supporters and stick it good and hard into those who are not so positively inclined.

When Mark Begich promises to never take your guns, that promise holds as much water as his promise to let you keep your health care insurance.  None.

District O Senator Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, is hosting meetings with officials from the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Fish and Game in Soldotna and Homer next week to take a closer look at House Bill 77. The legislation is aimed at streamlining the permitting process in Alaska and seeks to build upon efforts in recent years to make the process more efficient.

The 17th amendment removed an important power of the states in the interest of reducing corruption. Moving that power back to the states while creating a hybrid system that also curtails corruption is the goal of this new amendment.

One of the ways to remove power from Washington DC is to no longer allow them to turn a brief term as a member of congress into a lifetime appointment.

Term limits of the President

Since 1951 the President of the United States has been limited to two terms by the 22nd Amendment to our Constitution.

No comparable limits restrict the longevity of other federal office holders. In particular members of the House of Representatives and U.S. Senators may continue to serve as long as they are re-elected.

Mark Begich now supports a delay in ObamaCare.  Pity he didn't three weeks ago.

Guess who jumped on the “Extend and delay ObamaCare” bandwagon. Why, none other than our Boy Senator himself, Mark Begich.

In times of crisis, the US normally responds with a series of Constitutional Amendments to address the new problems.  Mark Levin proposes an Article V Constitutional Convention called by the many states to propose amendments that will move power out of Washington DC.

Why amend the Constitution?

Before I propose amendments that I believe strengthen the original intent of our Constitution, let me briefly explain why.

Just when we think things cannot get any more disconnected from reality in Washington DC, last July the US Senate passes a 1,200 page monstrosity entitled the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act.” Both our US Senators from Alaska voted for its passage.
