Think About It…….. July 3, 2013
When it comes to our Senators and their political views and votes cast in the United States Senate, we seem to be a long way from the conservative Republican votes of, long-time, Senators Ted Stevens and Frank Murkowski.
For the first time in decades we have a Democrat in the U.S. Senate and one would expect progressive-liberal views and votes from Mark Begich, in spite his attempts to make himself sound like a conservative, flag waving Alaskan.
In any case, one would expect a vote from Begich to vote Yes on immigration reform, providing a path for millions of illegal aliens to obtain American citizenship. Or for Begich to vote for visa’s which allow seasonal alien seafood workers to replace Alaskan American workers. Or for Begich to sing the praises of the Supreme Court for overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, which will allow man to man and woman to woman marriages. That’s just the latest of a long list of his progressive-liberal votes in the Senate.
But mostly the same list of votes for Senator Lisa Murkowski? What is going on! Lisa Murkowski voting Yes on immigration reform! Lisa Murkowski voting Yes for visa’s allowing aliens to work jobs that should go to Alaskans! Lisa Murkowski; singing the praises of the Supreme Court for overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and by doing so promoting man to man and woman to woman marriages rather than the historical marriage of a man and a woman to naturally propagate the human race.
So, how did we get two of these progressive-liberal Senators in Alaska? Now that is a good question.
Lisa Murkowski had most of us, as Alaskans, thinking she was a traditional conservative Republican, like Ted Stevens and her father Frank, when we went to the polls. My…how wrong we were! Lisa pulled the wool over our eyes, real good.
How Mark Begich won election as our Senator, after the mess he left, as Mayor or Anchorage, remains a mystery. Maybe, it was weak Primary and General Election opponents? Might have been. But one tends to think, that the reason Begich and Murkowski won the election, was the vote of thousands of new residents in our state. They have brought with them their much more liberal-progressive way of thinking from back home in California, Oregon and Washington.
So…like it or not, here we are with, not just one but, two liberal-progressives in the U.S. Senate. And you know what? We might just as well get used to it.
