We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." – Abraham Lincoln

Wisconsin GrandSons of Liberty Comprehensive Wisconsin High School Textbook Study Results
Franklin- The grassroots, Constitutionalist group Wisconsin GrandSons of Liberty released the results of a 143 day long study of high school textbooks used in 374 Wisconsin School Districts for grades 10-12. Textbooks from selected subjects were reviewed for neutrality and accuracy. The subjects included algebra, geometry, US history, world history, civics, world geography and economics.
In the course of conducting the study, the group discovered a disturbing lack of transparency as approximately 37% of the school districts contacted violated Wisconsin Open Records Request law and evidently ignored Wisconsin’s Textbook Accountability law. The group simply requested a small list of textbooks, which according to Wisconsin Statute 118.03 should exist and be on file with the District Clerk; yet many districts saw no requirement to abide by Wisconsin Open Records law and provide part or all of the list of approved and utilized textbooks within the district. Furthermore, since K-12 education spending accounts for 37% of the Wisconsin state budget, this failure to comply with a simple book request by saying that “no such record exists” destroys all confidence in the education bureaucracies to be good stewards of public property and raises questions about their fiscal responsibility.
Our analysis reveals that Common Core State Standards (CCSS) aligned texts for algebra and geometry were generally neutral; however, non-aligned texts such as civics, US history and world history exhibited some measure of bias. Ultimately, this study shows that the biases and inaccuracies existed in the texts prior to adoption of the CCSS and recent citizen involvement to look for inaccuracies in curriculum to malign CCSS clearly show these issues existed before CCSS.
In light of Gov. Walker’s call for a repeal of Common Core in Wisconsin, we come to a different recommendation. We feel it is more advantageous to conduct a comprehensive audit and detailed fiscal analysis of Wisconsin’s seven layers of educational bureaucracy before considering adding an eighth layer of complexity to the already bloated educational staff structure with the proposed “Model Academic Standards Board”.

How Wisconsin Lost healthcare Freedom
With a Special Session of the Wisconsin Legislature called to address the new healthcare needs generated by a failed aspect of the PPACA (Obamacare), this would be a good time to review mistakes made by the legislature and plan how to avoid new ones.

And just as important:
Selling insurance across state lines will open the door to ever more federal regulation and interference. It is a Trojan Horse with premiums. Read more.
