Candidate stakes position
Ted Stevens' immoral and unconstitutional votes are the reason why I am running for U.S. Senate:

He voted to regulate the political speech of American citizens. "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech."

He voted to fund the training of U.S. military doctors overseas to kill unborn Americans. Through the eyes of an unborn child, a pro-choice elected official is like having Osama bin Laden in charge of prenatal health in America.

On Iraq, he recently voted to transfer Congress' sole power to declare war to a war-making president, thus revealing his disdain for the U.S. Constitution. Without a declaration of war, not one soldier should be deployed overseas. The U.S. military is to protect the United States.

He voted to require background checks at gun shows. All federal gun-control laws are unconstitutional.

He voted to fund the National Endowment for the Arts. I will vote to eliminate the unconstitutional funding of this pornographic art.

Pledge of Allegiance: Those two judges should have been impeached by the House for contempt of the Constitution, convicted and removed from the bench by the Senate before quitting time.

Subsistence: Alaska's Constitution, which protects equal access for all, should never be changed so that it conforms to an unconstitutional federal law granting rural preference.

Senator Jim Dore will be a dependable defender of the Constitution.
