Change good for government
With election season rapidly approaching, I am very concerned that Alaskans will elect the same people who are sitting by and allowing our personal freedoms to slip away. Among the most important freedoms for Alaskans is the right to own firearms. We are seeing a rapid encroachment by gun control lobbyists who are coming into our state unchallenged by the current administration.

Sarah Palin is running for lieutenant governor. Not only is she a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and winner of the Defender of Freedom Award, she has proven as a two-term mayor of Wasilla that a less intrusive government is a more effective government. Sarah is the only candidate who has not been part of the status quo. She will bring new vision, new energy and new direction to state government.
