  • Reply to: Backlash Against Koch Agenda Leads to Recall Drive Against Alaska Governor   1 year 1 month ago
    Your article failed to mention that it is a bipartisan effort to recall this governor. Alaska has recall conditions in the State constitution that must be met. To date, actions by AG Kevin Clarkson show he is the Governor's yes man. It is expected that he will NOT be unbiased. A challenge in the courts is expected.

    There are so many things about the Federal government that are in dis-repair that a convention to propose amendments is the only way we can ever reign in the government. This article, just like 98% of the media, is distorting the facts and telling down right LIES, because they want big uncontrolled government. Educate yourself before you blast away about something that you know nothing about. This is a movement of Constitutional Conservatives who want to save the Nation from imminent peril from a run-a-way government. That's the run-a-way...a convention has too many safeguards to "run-a-way". Lastly the two phrases the left and the media knowingly use to as a scare tactic; "run-a-way convention" and "constitutional convention"! It is not the latter and the former can not happen. PERIOD!

    I was arrested along with over 200 other Wisconsin citizens for exercising our first amendment rights in the Wisconsin State Capitol. Despite the fact that all or our case were thrown out of court because the arrests were unconstitutional people the arrests themselves had consequences. People who put themselves on the line standing up for our right of free speech had pain compliance utilized on them as we were arrested. We had a 70 year old decorated Vietnam veteran dropped down the steps by the police. His hands were cuffed behind him taking away his ability to protect himself from the fall. This is only one example of the damage done to citizens under existing law. These new laws will just allow more harassing and physical abuse of citizens at the hands of police. These additional laws will have a chilling effect on free speech. They're unnecessary in a democratic society. They are ALEC bills designed to silence citizens standing up against the fossil fuels industries.

    The law does have an exception included that states: b) An exercise of a person's right of free speech or assembly that is otherwise 7lawful. Am I missing something?
