Huelskamp (ALEC-KS) - Extremist Policies, Divisive, Hateful

Eventually, the people of the USA will begin to understand threat the conservative movement that Paul Weyrich started is destroying the RepubliCON party because of the extremist views held by the conservative movement.

In the 2012 primary, conservatives won back the state Senate. Then-state Senate President Steve Morris (R-Hugoton), the leader of moderate Republicans who lost his own primary, told The Huffington Post at the time that Brownback and others wanted to create an "ultraconservativ eutopia" in Kansas. 
The conservatives of today are the extremists of the GOP – they are the WRONG part of the right.

More and more people are starting to recognize that organizations like the extremist ultra-conservative American Legislative Exchange Council do not speak for the moderates in this country.

We must repeatedly denounce right-wing extremist organizations like ALEC – for the extremist groups that they are – and bring to light the extremism of ALEC members.  While ALEC members may believe that their extremist views are "mainstream" because of the continual reinforcement they receive from ALEC and ALEC literature; they are not mainstream - they are extremists.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp announced Wednesday he would propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage

 “It is a complete and utter waste of time. It is a waste of taxpayer dollars. It clearly demonstrates that he has nothing better to do," Kansas Democratic Party spokesman Dakota Loomis said. "He is holding on to this divisive and hateful legislation when he should be focused on bringing jobs back to the First District. This will not help the farmers.”

Republicans in Huelskamp's rural district took pains to distance themselves.

State Rep. J.R. Claeys (R-Salina) stressed that a gay marriage ban is not a "legislative priority of mine"

State Rep. Reid Petty (R-Liberal) said he didn't want to comment on Huelskamp's proposal,

Huelskamp's spokesperson did not return a request for comment.

"A majority of Americans don't like President Obama as president, but he's still the president," Huelskamp said.
What does that have to do with the issue!
Another GOP lie being repeated. - the majority of American VOTED Obama into office.

One Kansas Democrat said he believes Huelskamp's amendment will hurt the state's reputation.

Topeka Councilman Chad Manspeaker (D) said. ". Huelskamp is becoming a national joke. Kansas needs less national jokes and more leadership."
