Help defeat Statewide Constitutional Amendment 1 that is on the ballot for the primary on 3 March,2020. HERE IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW: The SWAMP is attempting to TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR YOUR STATE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER!
Please take some time to read the document (Dare To Defend Our Rights) . Please download it and share it everywhere, churches, family, friends . If you don't want your children and grand-children to be educated without any reference to your values, then you must VOTE NO on March 3, 2020! Please get your family and friends to become involved by spreading the VOTE NO message and help us with whatever donation you can make (see donate button below). We are getting ready to purchase VOTE NO bumper stickers to be distributed throughout the state and then we will raise money for radio ads to be run in February,2020. March may seem like a long way off, but in political terms it is right around the corner, so we will need your help to raise funds (please see donate boxes) --our opponents have the usual big money behind them, so, while we cannot match their money, we can use social media, strategically placed radio ads, and hard work to overcome our monetary deficit!
WE MUST NOT LET THE INSIDERS TAKEOVER EDUCATION
Thanks for your time and support in this critical fight to save our fundamental rights! Dr. Lou
"We Dare Defend Our Rights!" Vote NO on amendment one
***Amendment 1 is worded to DECEIVE the voter into thinking it is all about renaming the State Board of Education. IT IS NOT!! ITFUNDAMENTALLY CHANGES OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM BY HAVING THE GOVERNOR APPOINT THE BOARD MEMBERS, INSTEAD OF YOU VOTING FOR THEM!! If you do not like the idea of politicians trying to DECEIVE you into voting for this Amendment, THENVOTE NO! ***The Alabama Policy Institute wants you to believe that losing your right to vote for your SBOE member should not be a concern because you can always go to your elected legislator and complain to them if you have a problem with an appointed Board member. THINK ABOUT THIS: THE SAME LEGISLATORS WHO ARE CONTROLLED BY THE BCA AND OTHER SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS ARE NOW TO BE TRUSTED TO INTERVENE ON YOUR BEHALF OVER ISSUES WE HAVE BEEN RAISING WITH THEM FOR 10 YEARS OVER COMMON CORE! **YOU ONLY HAVE ONE CHOICE ON MARCH 3RD--VOTE NO! GO TO THIS SITE FOR MORE INFORMATION:https://www.voteno-amend1.com/
NO! IT IS A LIE! The amendment purports to remove Common Core State Standards—more language deception! It will NOT remove Common Core State Standards and will actually LOCK Alabama constitutionally into “nationwide consistency,” which means national standards, which are Common Core State Standards. (See link to SB 397 on p. 5. ) As Jim Zeigler said, “They claim to be replacing Common Core, but are in fact imposing it through a bait and switch.”
VOTE NO to KEEP freedom to vote for your State Board of Education member. VOTE NO to KEEP your voice in your children’s education. VOTE NO to STOP more government control. VOTE NO to prevent Common Core State Standards from being inserted into our Constitution through a deceptive political maneuver we have labeled a BAIT AND SWITCH! VOTE NO to send a message that trying to fool the public with false claims will always fail because an alert citizenry will not succumb to lies, arrogance, and a thirst for power. PLEASE HELP US DEFEAT AMENDMENT 1 BY DONATING ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN--USE THIS DONATE BUTTON TODAY! THANKS FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!
Some key issues with the constitutional amendment. 1. Consolidates power in Montgomery. Removes ”elected” State Board of Education members and replaces them with Governor “appointed” members. 2. Does not require the appointed members be U.S. citizens. 3. Requires Alabama to use “ course of study standards with nationwide consistency” which is Common Core State Standards/National Standards by any other name. 4. Purposefully misleads people into thinking the constitutional amendment will remove Common Core State Standards by using the phase” in lieu of common core”. The problem is the words “common core” are small capped and have no legal definition. What is “common core”? Your opinion is as valid as anybody else’s. 5. Incorporated all the Obama programs and systems required by the federal government to implement the Common Core State Standards.
