EDITORIAL: A referendum on Obama--Leftist agenda is being checked at the state level
The Washington Times ^ | October 19, 2010 | Editorial

Voters scared about the country's liberal direction are taking action. Early voting began Monday in states including Arkansas, Colorado and Texas. This gives the public a timely opportunity to do more than just pull the lever in favor of handing control of the House or Senate back to Republicans. A few states have ballot measures designed as a direct repudiation of the administration's policies, including union card check, Obamacare, global warming and out-of-control government spending.

President Obama has sought to pay back the union bosses who were critical to his election, and Big Labor's top demand is the enactment of card-check legislation during a lame-duck session of Congress. This law would allow union thugs to scrutinize how individual employees vote on questions of union representation. As labor leaders are not known for their subtlety, this gives rise to the obvious concern that threats and coercion would be used to compel the desired outcome. Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah residents will be given the choice of rewriting their state constitutions to guarantee the right to a secret ballot for all elections for public office and employee representation.

The Show Me state gave us a sneak peak at how a vote directly repudiating a centerpiece of the O Force agenda might turn out. In August, 71 percent of Missouri voters decided to reject the health care mandate central to Obamacare. Now Arizona, Colorado and Oklahoma will hold votes on amending their state constitutions to prohibit state officials from enforcing any federal requirement for residents to participate in a given health care plan...

People are finally learning that to control the Federal Government, you have to control the States. Get rid of the those that are a danger to this country in the States and Washington is under control......as well it should be.

You want to see a state that is in mess, look at Michigan - 10 years of massive amount of business’s leaving the state, forclosures at an all time high. Till this year Michigan ranked #1 in unemployment, when Nevada surpassed it. Michigan has doctors leaving the state because of the number of people whom cannot pay unless it is at Medicare and Medicaid rates.

To control the feds and the state, it must be at the local level. Hey, I know about the problems in my local community. Blight problem is going on, unchecked in my neighborhood. For the last four years I have repeatedly complained about the 10 abandoned properties that are falling apart. I filed a formal complaint through city hall against the Blight enforcement officer ( a police officer wh0om was paid extra to do the job). I found out the guy instead of responding to the complaint he resigned, and he went to work for the Department of Public Works (Damn Poor Workers) where his father was in charge of the department. More and more Nepotism at its finest. On Wednesday I go in front of the City Council to address the issue in a more formal setting. Local politicians and union employees are lazy and corrupt. End nepotism and the good ole boys club.

What this “stop it at the state level” suggests is that — at some point in the upcoming future — there is going to be a “just short-a-shootin’” rebellion of several states vs. the federals.

And we all know what happened last time!
