For Alaska's Future
A retired lieutenant colonel, Margaret Stock is standing for Alaskans on the issues.
She has served her country in the U.S. Army Military Police Corps for 28 years. She is a graduate of the Harvard Law School, the Kennedy School of Government, and the Army War College. The oath she took to protect the Constitution and the nation is the oath she lives by today.
Margaret isn't a politician, and she doesn't represent a party. She is a retired soldier and a 2013 MacArthur Fellowship winner.
She lives in Anchorage with her husband Neil; her daughter Catherine is away at college. In her spare time, she loves to hike and ski in Alaska's mountains and relax at her wilderness cabin.
“In light of America’s present-day passions over immigration, it is also worth observing that nearly a quarter of the draftees in 1918 were immigrants, the result of an influx that had transformed America’s demography into a “melting pot” of lineages — British, German, Hispanic, Italian, Slav — according to Geoffrey Wawro, a professor of history and director of the Military History Center at the University of North Texas.”

The President has openly admitted that his strategy is to tell lies and stoke fears: “Mr. Trump was open about the tactic in a 2016 conversation with Lesley Stahl of CBS News, which she shared earlier this year: ‘I do it to discredit you all and demean you all, so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you,’ she quoted him as saying.
And with the president settling on “fear and falsehoods” as an election strategy . . . the political information system is awash in more misleading or flatly wrong assertions than reporters can keep up with. It’s as if President Trump has hit the journalism industry with a denial-of-service attack.”
Walker endorses Mark Begich :
“Trump claims that expanding the federal government’s Medicare program would cost $32.6 trillion over a decade. But as Business Insider reports, that would actually be a discount compared with the nation’s current health care bill.
Trump . . . fails to note that total health care spending under Medicare for All would be about $2 trillion less over the decade than currently projected. The federal government would pay more, but Americans on the whole would pay less.”
