The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a membership organization for businesses that promote Limited Government, Free Markets and Federalism. Pretty subversive, don’t you think? Senator Dick Durbin certainly thinks so, and he is on a vendetta to destroy it. He also plans to eradicate the First Amendment in the process. What is this all about? And how does ALEC protect all of us from the creep of Progressivism? ALEC is the most important organization you’ve never heard about - until you hear this podcast. Will Freeland who works with ALEC and with the Tax Foundation and has written extensively on federalism and tax reform, joins Bob to give details. Are the states the last best protection of our free society (Washington is a hopeless write off in this regard)? What are the seven great myths told about tax policy, Federalism, Freedom, Free Markets?
While some would have you believe that America is winning the war on terror, we have in fact lost. We’re reminded to be terrorized with every flight we take and every time we enter a government building. Talk about “leverage.” We spend billions in reaction to terrorism, all the while fighting “yesterday’s battles.” TSA provides employment for anyone who has an adequate amount of rudeness and a domination complex. Plain talk and facts about the alleged “war on terrorism” this Sunday at noon. And what about the Ground Zero Mosque? Should it be built? What is the “American” response? Bob suggests First Amendment Rights of religion vs. First Amendment Rights of free speech and let the best Right win. Details Sunday.
