Kohring is right

Posted: Thursday, May 23, 2002

Three cheers for Vic Kohring and the other Senate Republicans. The vast majority of Alaskans are opposed to ever-larger government (remember the 83 percent vote against tapping the permanent fund).

My Turn: Alaska now drowning in government excesses

I completely agree with Mr. Kohring's assertion that the government, "... is a bloated Leviathan..." that must be reined in.

The neo-socialists (if they quack like a duck...) scream about an upcoming train wreck. They apparently believe that the government will solve all of our problems if we continue to satisfy its ever-increasing appetite.

Reading their letters to the editor, it is apparent to me that the societal train wreck has already occurred.

Free enterprise is what made this country great. It is refreshing to know that at least some of our leaders understand and appreciate this fact. We the people will indeed remember who stood their ground and fought for the people of this state.
