Those in the Sovereign Citizen movement claim that they are above the law and don't need to follow any rules. There's been an uptick of SC related incidents since Obama became president including the shooting deaths of two policemen in Arkansas and the shooting of Gabby Giffords and others in Arizona a couple of months ago.
But this blog post isn't about Cox, it's about peninsula politicians. Obviously, Wagoner and Bird are suckers for Cox's, um, ideas, but so is Mayor Dave Carey. Norm Olson and Mike McBride of ACT were among Cox's handlers and Gary Superman was recognized.
While Congressman Don Young isn't from the Kenai, he does represent us down in DC and Don has been a big supporter of the 2nd Amendment Task Force, of which Cox is the president of the Alaska chapter.
And why all of the political support? Do they all really believe that we all need to be locked and loaded at all times? Do they really believe that we should disobey the law? Do they think that we should kill the representatives of the law?
Maybe they were just pandering for votes among from the right wing-nuts here on the peninsula. Remember, we voted overwhelmingly for Joe Miller this last election.
If peninsula politicians don't really buy that gov't conspiracy black-helicopter stuff, maybe they shouldn't pal around with those who do.
