    ‘Apathetic’ complaining won’t recall leftist Anchorage Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    In about a month, Anchorage Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel is going to win the recall vote. About five months later, she will likely get re-elected.

    How do I know?

    Because the people who support her are showing up to vote. They show up to volunteer. They show up at community council meetings. And if they can’t show up, they pull out a credit card and donate money to the people that DO show up. They’ve out fundraised the Zaletel recall 10:1 and they deserve to win because they’re actually getting involved … compared to 99.7% of the people right here who say they want change but only show up to complain, often after the fact.

    For the last 18 months you all have watched as the Assembly arrested the public, blew through the CARES act funds, and pushed the worst of the progressive agenda onto Anchorage – all the while you were coming here daily to bitch about how bad things are, while doing little of value to stop it.

    For the cost of a $5 coffee you could swing the April election if each one of you got off your ass and donated even that most minimal amount of money to one of the conservative Assembly/schoolboard candidates, or the recall. As much as you may dislike it – it takes money to win elections.

    At the very least, when your property taxes go up to pay for the next building boondoggle, or your kids come home brainwashed from CRT, or your employer goes under because the Assembly spent all the relief funds on political cronyism disguised as equity payouts, you would know at least you tried, even if you lost.

    Whatever it is that’s keeping you apathetic is a co-conspirator with the worst of the political cancer destroying this city, and eventually it will be too late to stop it. Complaining doesn’t kill cancer, chemotherapy does. And chemotherapy is often painful and expensive.

    Get involved.

      • Agreed, totally out of line.
        I’ll aim for $12 to Recall Zaletel effort: $5 for me $5 for someone else and $2 on behalf of Burt above.

      • No its a fact, Communist never give up power without a fight. You know it, I know it, the whole world knows it. The founders knew it and empowered us to be able to do what will be inevitable.

      • Well Burt sure isn’t wrong. You’ll notice that the GOP is part of the problem locally and nationally. GOP fought against Bronson, give us people like Murkowski and Sullivan, not to mention Young who voted for the Red Flag gun confiscation just yesterday. Notice that the Arizona audit proved over 50K fake votes all for the Demonrat…………and not a single statement from the GOP, not even a Tweet. The enemies of Freedom are more than the Marxists Commie ASSembly. You can’t change this through fake, stolen elections. Not a lot of choices left outside of complying with Tyranny and licking their boots like a good slave.

    1. Russell, right on the money! That is how the last recall lost! All bellyaching, no action! So tired of attacks back at people trying to do the right thing when outnumbered then when it comes time to get involved, crickets!
      You get what you allow to happen. You get meaningful change for fighting for it!

    2. Anchorage is going to get exactly what it deserves. Weak people up there. I guess all you Christians up there are going to sit on your asses and hope jesus returns to fix things. Good luck with that!

    3. I didn’t see opportunities to donate.. why not help instead of gripe??
      -It would have been more productive to write something on how and where we can be active.
      This turns me off from wanting to help.. when I vote and protest in my own ways.. and am active in my community.
      I guess I am of no value unless I give my money away that I need for bills and family.. but tell me more about needing to get up off my ass : /
      I’ll donate when I find someone worth donating too and I am given info on how to donate.
      I have seen TOO many Rhino Flip Floppers…

    4. Just curious Burt…who are you going to shoot and what army has assembled that will stand with you? Do you surround the court house? Then what? Do you want a wake up call when it all kicks off?

    5. You know what I need to donate. A way that doesnt involve using a credit card. Someone I can send a money order to by mail. It’s like my tithing, I still use the Offering plate though the church advertises its online giving. As well as I try volunteering for things buy my phone gets no apps, and many of these political events expect their volunteers to be using Apps.

    6. Besides if our leaders (the restrainers holding a sheild agianst leaders driven by demonic spirits) really want effectual change, something that brings about change, and the kind of change that also makes individuals more generous. Then encourage the people to get back into a bible teaching bible believing bible reading church with weekly bible studies, and community leaders get involved growing the church ministries spreading God’s Word and God’s Kingdom.

      Before the falling away from the church, church people used to have socials where they can talk, rally, and support events of the community and candidates among eachother.

      The devil he has his world’s people United around his cause . But! The church people are and has been separated, isolated, and scattered. Its challenging to get God’s people come together when they been isolated since they stopped. The only way to get them back is meet them where they are and bring them to church with you.
      You are either rallying around the Devil’s cause or you are rallying around God. Pick your choice.

    7. The spirit of the sourdoughs has moved on from this world. The droning of the floatplane overhead is the only reminder they were here. Russell you speak the truth. No point fighting those who hate you alongside those unsure of themselves. God speed your efforts.

    8. I just gave $250 at https://www.recallzaletel.com. If you cannot donate, please join my wife and I at the Anchorage Assembly meeting tonight to show our support for our Mayor Dave Bronson and help fight the awful mask ordinance that Zalatel put on the agenda. If I can do that while under threat of losing my job due to the impending “vaccine” mandate, others should be able to as well. While we are still able to fight this tyranny with our donations and our voices now, that won’t be the case in the future if we don’t stand up today. While I am not really worthy I will end this comment with a quote from Todd Beemer. It’s time folks “Let’s roll”.

    9. I’ve reached out several times via the email contact page on the Recall Zalatel page but no one has gotten back to me. I’ve donated what I can as far as money, but would love to get a sign for my yard.
