Governor Palin has a warning for Alaskans, and all of America: Hard won victories over crony capitalism and strong ethics reform will be lost if citizens are not vigilant against Outside forces that have, solely, their own interests in mind; not the interests of Alaskans who own the product. Governor Palin’s hallmark legislation, Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share or ACES, protected everyday, hard working Alaskans from those who wanted to exploit the state’s natural resources without fairly compensating them. On August 19, Alaskans will vote on a crucial ballot proposition to protect what ACES stood for in protecting the interests of Alaskans. As Governor Palin tells us, with less than a week before the vote, the time to act is now.
