Alaska has three separate and independent: branches of government: Executive, Legislative, Judicial. “Separate and independent” doesn’t have to be confrontational. In plain English, different branches of government can maintain independence - and put Alaska first - without continuing to “stick fingers in each other’s eyes” to prove whatever it is someone’s trying to prove. Time out, please!

Likewise, Alaska has a two-party political system - plus some “third parties” to make things interesting. Hopefully (and hope springs eternal), political parties will put the last election to rest - no matter whom we voted for - and (like the branches of government should do) put Alaska first. No matter who runs for what at some future date - president, senate, governor, state house, whatever - it’s time to give partisan and other political attacks a much needed rest for the benefit of Alaska. Time out, please!

Let’s give each other a political hug – but not across the neck and carotid artery.
