ALEC - The Move to State Dictators

I have run into another aspect of ALEC that is causing me to pace around my house while I try to keep myself sane.  This is so damn crazy and because it’s a new line of research for me – I am still trying to put my arms around all the implications of this insanity. (Please bear with me and any misteps in  logic, while I try to get my head around this  - more to come.)

This new area of ALEC is their position on Federalism and State Sovereignty.

Let me paint a scenario for you.

What is you lived in a state like Wisconsin that was run by ALEC – like Wisconsin or Ohio currently is?

Based on the current ALEC agenda –
Scott Walker and John Kasich would become your state dictator
with the ability to separate your state from Federal regulations  - becausetheycan -
that they decided they didn’t like or they thought were costing too much money.  

They could do this without you input!

What is your state dictator didn’t want to abide by
EEOC regulations,
EPA regulations,
NLRB regulations,
OSHA regulations,
FTC regulations?

What if your state government could say NO! to any federal government law or regulation they decided they didn’t want?

Inside ALEC: April 2011
The state legislatures need to do the same today by leading the charge to amend the U.S. Constitution to give two-thirds of states the power to repeal any law or regulation of Congress. It is called the Repeal Amendment and its text is simple:

“Any provision of law or regulation of the United States may be repealed by the several states, and such repeal shall be effective when the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states approve resolutions for this purpose that particularly describe the same provision or provisions of law or regulation to be repealed.”

“They [states] can repeal regulations and laws that we [The Federal government] do.

As you watch the video keep this in mind
Enzi (WY)– ALEC Alumni
Bishop (UT) – ALEC Alumni
Broun (GA)
Griffith (VA) – ALEC Alumni
Hatch (UT)
Barasso (WY) – Regularly noted as a speaker at ALEC meetings

As you watch this video keep in mind that ALEC has distributed the necessary state resolution/amendment to all their members in every state.

Get in touch with your US Senator or House Member and say, NO! to the Repeal Amendment.

We HAVE TO remove ALL ALEC members
from the State and Federal governments
in the next two elections.
