Letter: We own US and should act like it

Once again we are finding out the hard way just how ineffectual our politicians are as the government they are supposed to be running remains shuttered. They aren’t the only ones who  need to shoulder some blame, however. We  must take some responsibility.

I always hear about Alaska being an “Owner State” but really, that is what any democracy is. We own this country and it is about time we acted like it. If you don’t like what is happening, stop complaining about it and do something!
