Michigan - Say NO to GARY GLENN - Smells like ALEC, Yuck!

This alone is enough to say NO to GLENN - this guy is VERY dangerous.
He was also invited to address the annual convention of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a national conference of state legislators, and testified before both the Ohio and Idaho legislative committees on the plan.  (OH and ID are strongholds of ALEC.)

A quote
We ought to shrink the federal portion of our economic pie so the private sector can again expand.

Glenn on the environment
Someone would have to educate me as to why I should have any objection to” the 1,900-mile Keystone XL pipeline to transport tar sands crude from Alberta, Canada, to Texas.
A Penn State study said if we drill and frack, we’d create 800,000 American oil and gas jobs. With shale oil rock in Michigan, some of them will be in Michigan.”
Climate change he attributes to cyclical sun spots. “Man has very little ability to affect it, one way or the other.”


But is you need more reasons here's a few:
From his issues page
If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn will vote to cut taxes — as Presidents Kennedy and Reagan did — to grow our economy, create jobs, and shift the productive wealth of our society back to the private sector rather than into expanding Big Government  (Oh- here we go - ALEC's "private sector" members are probably wetting themselves right now.)

If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn would vote to (1) repeal Obama’s socialized medicine scheme, 2) save taxpayers money by providing a Medical Savings Account to all federal employees, and (3) provide tax incentives to both employers and individuals to make Medical Savings Accounts more available to all Americans  (This is ALEC-speak!   "Medical Savings Accounts" )
If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn will join Sen. Jim DeMint, Sen. Rand Paul, and Sen. Mike Lee in sponsoring a national Right to Work law  (ALEC has an Act for that!)  (Glenn served as a Congressional lobbyist for the National Right to Work Committee in 1983.)
If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn will champion our God-given Right to Keep and Bear Arms,  (ALEC has a resolution for that - Resolution on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution)

If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn   ...   will vote to eliminate the federal income tax, padlock the Internal Revenue Service, and replace it with a fair or other flat-tax system that removes all taxes on investments in the creation of jobs. He will vote to cut what is one of the highest corporate taxes...

If he runs and is elected, Senator Gary Glenn will vote to eliminate the federal Department of Education, which didn’t even exist until created in the late 1970′s as a political payoff to NEA union officials by Jimmy Carter.
Gary believes education policies should be set at the state and local level without federal interference.   (He's a tenther - ALEC likes that, so are they)
Gary will promote federal tax policies that financially incentivize individuals, corporations, and nonprofits to offer scholarships that financially empower low-income parents to choose the best and safest schools for their children, public or otherwise  (Priviatization of education through use of scholarships - ALEC has "model legislation" for that.)

Michigan - PLEASE DON'T DO THIS TO THE UNITED STATES.  PLEASE do not elect this guy.

For more information on ALEC –

And watch this news video  from North Carolina on how other ALEC "model legislation" is going to screw the citizens of North Carolina - legislation introduced by ALEC legislators.


A vote for an ALEC or ALEC leaning candidate -
is a vote for greater pro-corporate representation and legislation,
is a vote against small and medium size business,
is a vote against representative government for the people, and
is a vote against the very beliefs of the United States of America.
