ON THE SUBJECT OF "CHANGE"

Like most everyone else, I've been riveted to the presidential election campaign because, among other things, the safety and security of the United States is at stake. The following is a Letter to the Editor I sent to the Anchorage Daily News this evening.

"Letters to the Editor

Anchorage, Alaska

Dear Editor:

“Change.” It’s the buzzword-of-the-day for political one-upmanship. It’s like presidential candidates - both Republican and Democrat - experienced a sudden epiphany enroute to Election Day. Their mantra seems to be, “Mirror mirror on the wall, who favors change most of all”

Newsflash. Change is neither good nor bad. It depends what the change is.

Change can be a very good thing when changing politics of corruption to politics of serving the public. That kind of change is critical to strengthening the Foundation of Trust between the good people of Alaska and the nation, and the people they elect to public office.

But some things should never change: love of Creator and country; freedom of religion and speech; personal responsibility; safeguarding our nation and supporting our troops; right to bear arms, traditional American values; parental rights; right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. And the list goes on . . .

When political candidates - presidential, state, or local - make a big deal of “change,” consider that change isn’t necessarily a good thing. It depends what the change is.

Respectfully,

REP. BOB LYNN"
