</span>
In a speech earlier this month at the Conservative Political Action Committee’s annual conference, Americans For Prosperity-Michigan Executive Director Scott Hagerstrom revealed the true goal of his group and its allies like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) efforts. Speaking at CPAC’s “Panel for Labor Policy,” Hagerstrom said that AFP really wants to do is to “take the unions out at the knees”:

HAGERSTROM: It’s easy to go out there and fight taxes and increased regulation, you know we send out an action alert on taxes to AFP and we get thousands of people to respond. You send out one on a more complicated issue and it just doesn’t quite resonate…<u>We fight these battles on taxes and regulation <span style='font-size: 14pt'>but really what we would like to see is to take the unions out at the knees</span> <span style='font-size: 17pt'>so they don’t have the resources to fight these battles. </span></u>

This WI attack on the unions has NEVER been about budgets or deficits. Walker has proved it through his actions, he proved it in that prank phone call and now this.

Its a power grab.<span style='font-size: 14pt'> A coup d'état.</span>


Q



Its no surprise to me but for all the posters here who are now slamming unions etc, <span style='font-size: 17pt'>just consider that Walker has been lying through his teeth the whole time.</span>

<span style="color: #990000"> Well, that should make him the next Republican STAR! LOL, he has proven he's presidential material, lol.

Megga Monster Man in NJ has been doing the same thing, so it will probably be a toss up.

The one who lies the best, will be the star. </span> /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

God bless them.

Marxist controlled unions have extorted dues from their members long enough, and it has perverted our political system to the point unions petition gubmint with an agenda that works 180 degrees against the best interests of their members.
