After being discredited as "Disco Ray" by the Republican Party and subsequently life-flighted to Washington state with heart problems, Ray Metcalfe continues to be upbeat about the prospects of the fastest growing political party in Alaska, the Republican Moderate Party. He continues to fight for all Alaskans through a lawsuit against the state to uphold the right for cooperating political parties to conduct an open primary. He continues to press forward by educating Alaskans to demand that we receive fair market value for our oil production.
It was uplifting for me to receive a link from Ray Metcalfe to a "Disco Ray" site (not affiliated with the Republican Moderate Party!) at www.idrowned.com/discoray.htm. I'm very happy that he remains positive and hasn't lost his sense of humor, regardless of the recent turns of political events. He's still working to get the word out regarding the financial condition of Alaska and proposing viable solutions to our budget problems, which do not include destroying the longevity bonus program, ending the permanent fund with Murkowski's "POMV" (percent of market value) plan or lumping big taxes on working Alaskans.
Get educated, Alaska! Prepare for an uphill battle to get our financial situation resolved. Ray's "Republican Moderate" solution to the fiscal gap can be found at www.republicanmoderate.org/FiscalGapSolution3.doc. It would be beneficial to try to keep your sense of humor until we get our house in order.
