Say no to raid on the permanent fund

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, June 29, 2004

A few months ago I wrote a letter to the editor about Rep. Carl Moses trying to get his foot in the door in taking our permanent fund away from us. Gov. Murkowski is not different with his obsession about taking our permanent fund; he has tried all kinds of schemes to get his hands on it. What really blows my mind is he had the gall to try and bribe us with our own money, with his offer of a guarantee of $1,000. Is he trying to tell us he is going to eventually get our permanent fund dividend without our permission, but he will guarantee us $1,000 if we give him permission? He must think Alaskans are very stupid.

At the rate our judges are declaring our constitution being unconstitutional, our children and grandchildren are going to need some kind of security for their future. "Just say no," Alaska.
