Alaska's one and only Congressman (God aren't we proud) suggests that if elected Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders would control "everything" we do.

Courtesy of Think Progress:

Young told WFQD on Wednesday that he initially supported Jeb Bush because he knew his “old man” and now prefers John Kasich. But, Young says, Kasich has no chance of winning because he has no “charisma” and people “don’t think anymore.” 

Still, Young is seeking to rally Republicans around whoever is the nominee, calling this “the most crucial election” for Alaska and the nation. Why? Because Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton will seek to have the government “control everything you do.” 

Everything? Yes, everything. Young goes on to earnestly explain that Sanders or Clinton would mandate “when to get up, what to eat, what you are thinking, what school you are going to go to and what you are going to believe.”

When ever anybody asks me if Alaska's elections are rigged, I always respond with "Have you heard about Congressman Don Young?"

There really is no other way to explain how he is still in office, since I have yet to meet one person who will admit to voting for him.

But do you know what? Young has already filed to run in 2016, and there is little doubt that he will easily win again.

Feel free to pity us.

    If either of the two candidates will control everything we do, as Congressman Young claims, then Bristol should be enthusiastic about both of them. That way, the winner will tell some poor sap to marry her.

    Isn't that the same scare tactic thy said about President Obama? The GOP really needs to get better writers for their talking points.
    And as for how he gets elected the citizens of Alaska election him over and over.

      Maybe Young is getting senile because he forgot-they are going to come for your guns !!!!

      Are all Republicans liars or do all liars become republicans?

    People certainly don't think anymore if they re-elect him.

    “when to get up, what to eat, what you are thinking, what school you are going to go to and what you are going to believe.”

    Seriously???

    1. Heck, I already get an email every day from President Obama telling me what time to get up the next morning, how many pushups to do, and how much hot water I am allotted for my shower. And he took all my guns away. And secret tunnels under WalMarts! Jade Helm! Benghazi! You kids get off my lawn, you little rotters! Watch out or I will wear my propeller beanie! Then you will be sorry!

  7. Young said, "... and people “don’t think anymore.” Well his being elected over and over for decades proved that long ago.

      No, and I don't believe that was implied unless one is a violent person with a low IQ who knows only one way to accomplish something -- the thug's way.

      I have absolutely no doubt there is someone living in Alaska who could resolve the problem without resorting to violence. They just have to want to.

    I started voting (in Alaska) the year Goldwater was making news and have never cast a vote for Don Young!

    Reason: I think he is a jerk and loudmouth. Plus, doesn't he have a horrible record in Congress as to doing anything? He's a member of the biggest 'do nothing' Congress in history!

    Vote him out of office Alaskans! Get serious - he's an old man now and has made a career out of being a politician! The Alaska Legislature needs to set term limits (for the U.S. Congress and Alaska Legislature members) to be approved by Alaskans!

    If almost eight years of the Obama presidency did not achieve Rep. Young's goals, how does he think Clinton or Sanders all be successful? Details and specifics, please, Mr. Young.

      Follow up: I'd love to hear any and all Alaskans ask the esteemed and dotttering Rep. Young how he thinks these evil schemes will be enacted, and why has President Obama been such a total failure at carrying out this liberal plan?

    O/T This is an excellent article:

    Stop Parroting GOP Lies That Hillary Clinton Is Dishonest

    ...However, to demean a candidate’s character as dishonest and untrustworthy based on innuendo and dishonest proclamations, especially a candidate of the same party is despicable and a typically Republican ploy. It is why the perpetual claims from too many on the “Left” that Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is dishonest and untrustworthy are beyond reprehensible....

    ...For example, the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Politifact” gave Clinton the best truth-telling record of any of the 2016 presidential candidates in either party. She easily crushes Republicans Kasich, Cruz and Trump, and Politifact rates her as more truthful than her Democratic opponent.

    In fact, the former executive editor of the New York Times and a renowned investigative journalist who is no friend of Hillary or Bill Clinton, Jill Abramson, penned an op-ed in the Guardian and declared that “Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.” Ms. Abramson is uniquely qualified to assess Clinton’s candidacy and character after spending the past 25 years as an editor and investigative journalist carefully covering “every phony scandal that has enveloped the Clintons.”

    Jill Abramson laid out her “yardstick for measuring a politician’s honesty” that includes “investigating connections between money (donations, loans, Super Pac funds, speaking fees, foundation ties) and a candidate’s official actions and lies made in the heat of an election.” Abramson’s conclusion is that “there are no instances of where Hillary Clinton did the bidding of a donor or benefactor.” It is something her opponent cannot truthfully claim, and yet is regarded by those claiming Clinton is dishonest as the epitome of integrity and honesty....

    He is quite clear that he only represents the people who voted for him. I never have but I know a lot of people who will openly ait that they do for the sole reason that he is a Republican. Not one of them has a clue about how embarrassing or corrupt he is.

    Old fudzy dudzy. I noticed Murkowski whispering something into Dole's ear and remembered last year when she had to set this old fart straight on something. Is she the self-appointed old man sitter for the GOP? Trying to prop these old guys up to spew the same old shit they've been spewing for decades must be trying but someone has to keep up the facade.
