Democracy THREATENED!

Democracy is being worse than threatened right now.  It’s being completely obstrPolitical Cartoons by Henry Payneucted. 

 Just as alarming is how OUR COUNTRY’S leader is flouting the law and ignoring the Constitution, Political Cartoons by Chip Bok

but for the immediate moment, all focus and efforts should be on supporting Governor Walker of Wisconsin. {More on unions} This is critical to ALL OF US.  Please take action TODAY, if only to pass this on!

Please be sure to sign the National Right to Work petition below as well.

Ever since Gov. Scott Walker signed his reform bill into law on Friday, Obama’s bloated public unions have sought frantically to reverse it.

The battle for Wisconsin is not over!

As we have already reported, Gov. Walker and his supporters are still under fierce attack.

The big unions and Obama allies are moving to recall more than a half dozen legislators who supported Scott Walker.

And, in their latest ploy, the liberal Secretary of State Doug La Follette is intentionally delaying implementation of the law.

We know Scott Walker’s opponents had little use for the democratic process and fled the state to avoid a free and fair legislative vote.

Now, these same folks are playing another game. In Wisconsin, new laws don’t take effect until they’re published by the secretary of state with the Legislative Reference Bureau.

So La Follette, who’s backed by Obama’s bloated public unions, is stonewalling in the hope a judge will grant an injunction against Scott Walker’s law.

He’s also stalling so his public union cronies can rush through new union contracts under the old law, to loot taxpayers for even more lavish benefits and six-figure salaries.

Frankly, it’s disgusting.

And, even worse, the big liberal media are letting this outrage against democracy to continue without exposing it to the public.

It’s dangerous if we allow this to continue, and it is a key reason why the League of American Voters is in Wisconsin fighting for Scott Walker and for taxpayer sanity.

Help us in this fight — Go Here Now.

Last week, I warned you that it was going to get ugly.

It really has gotten ugly.

Over the last 72-hours, we’ve learned about a surge of death threats against Scott Walker and the 18 legislators who courageously stood beside him.

In a mafia-like letter from the head of the Wisconsin police union, a local businessman is being threatened with payback.

And at a fundraising event for Gov. Walker over the weekend, the public union bosses showed up to harass Scott Walker’s donors with a goon squad of angry protesters.

This week, Time magazine did its part for Team Obama, publishing a story headlined “Wisconsin’s Governor Wins, but Is He Now Dead Man Walker?”

Time is in Obama’s corner. In fact, Obama’s new White House press secretary is none other than former Time magazine editor Jay Carney.

The fact is that Team Obama is desperate to “reverse” our big victory in Wisconsin.

They know what’s at stake.

Already states around the country are preparing to follow Scott Walker’s lead in Wisconsin.

Obama and the big unions fear this. Obama knows that his crucial support in the last election came from the big unions.

We at the League have a plan to stop Obama’s radical agenda.

We are hard at work in Wisconsin with our intensive media campaign exposing Obama and the big unions.

And our staff at the League is working overtime to support efforts across the country to roll back the big public employee unions.

But we urgently need funds to do it.

If you have donated, please feel free to donate again. Please Donate Here Now.

Your help has helped make possible Scott Walker’s victory.

We can’t let Obama and the unions steal this victory from us.

Yours for America,

Bob Adams

P.S. My sources in Wisconsin say that the unions and pro-Obama groups continue to pour millions into Wisconsin. They want to destroy Scott Walker. The League has been leading the fight in Wisconsin to defend Scott Walker. We must continue this effort as we prepare for other state battles. Dick Morris says the League is the “most effective grassroots organization in America.” Please help us stay effective by Donating Here Now

Great news.

Last week, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) introduced the National Right to Work Act (S. 504). Congressman Steve King (R-IA) is expected to introduce the House version next week.

What’s next is up to Right to Work supporters like you.

If you haven’t done so already, please sign the National Right to Work Act petition. Then, please forward this message to friends, family, and other like-minded citizens and ask them to sign the petition as well.

It’s absolutely vital we turn up the heat on every member of Congress.

As you know, this legislation would enshrine the common-sense principle – already enforced in 22 states – that no worker should be compelled to join or pay dues to a union just to get or keep a job.

In an age of legislative overreach, this is one of the shortest bills ever introduced.

A National Right to Work Act does not add a single word to federal law. It simply removes language in the National Labor Relations Act that gives union bosses the power to extract dues and fees from nonunion workers.

And as we’ve seen in Wisconsin, Indiana, and elsewhere so far this year, the union bosses will do anything to protect their government-granted forced-dues powers.

That’s why I need your help.

I have an aggressive plan to push the National Right to Work Act onto the front-burner of U.S. politics.

First, through a large, national petition campaign we will ramp up the pressure to secure the maximum number of co-sponsors in the House and Senate.

Then, working with our allies, we will secure hearings in both chambers to expose the abuses of forced-unionism and its cost to America in lost jobs, bloated government and corrupt politics.

Finally, we will really turn up the heat – mail, phones, email and internet ads, radio, even TV ads if funding permits – as the National Right to Work Act comes to a vote on the floor of the U.S. House and Senate.

This is an ambitious program.

I can’t do it alone.

Please, sign the National Right to Work Act petition and forward this message to other grassroots activists.

And please consider chipping in with a contribution of $10 or more today.

Internet mobilization. Massive public information campaigns. Even radio and TV ads.

It’s all expensive. But just chipping in $10 or more today will go a long way.

Your help has been critical so far. I know I can count on you as we push forward.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. Last week, Senator Jim DeMint introduced the National Right to Work Act (S. 504).

This critical legislation would strip union bosses of the government-granted power to extract dues and fees from independent-minded employees as a condition of employment.

Please help us take on Big Labor by submitting your petition, forwarding this to like-minded citizens, and chipping in with a contribution of $10 or more today.
