Who We Are and What We Do…
Every Monday night in Alaska as the work week begins and to-do lists come back into focus, we jump on the telephone with like-minded people joining from all around the state. Â Â The Statewide Teleconference is an effort to facilitate a conversation on a variety of topics important to Alaskans with one goal in mind:Â restoration of The Rule of Law.
â€œI thought if we set aside a regular time to talk with one another about issues that are important to us weâ€™d be able to discuss things before they get out of hand,â€ says Maria Rensel, founder of the group. Â Â â€œIn May of this year a group of us got together and decided to spearhead the effort.Â We meet by teleconference to schedule topics ranging from nullification of unconstitutional Federal laws to drone strikes to corruption in party politics.Â Last week the discussion centered on the Common Core Curriculum and how itâ€™s being implemented by the Alaska Department of Education right now.â€
Michael Chamber s, a member of a new group of concerned citizens, United for Liberty Alaska noted that the Sunday (now Monday’s) teleconferences are a powerful tool for communication.Â â€œAlaskans in every corner of this greatÂ state share their concerns regardingÂ the intrusion of an oppressive government on every level.Â The past days of politicalÂ apathy haveÂ led us to the mess we currently have.Â The only way out of this messÂ is to awaken the citizenry to action regarding what is best for their individual liberties instead ofÂ what is best for special interests.â€
The group has no party affiliation and is made up of Libertarians, Republicans, Independents and Undeclared members and is firmly committed to avoiding a formal structure.Â We started out as a grassroots group and we need to stay that way, itâ€™s just people calling in and talking.Â But weâ€™re talking about issues that specifically relate to individual liberty and maintaining the founding ideals of our country.
â€œâ€¦ Building upon the knowledge of the founding principles embodied in our constitutional liberties coupled with traditional Alaskan independence encompasses the success of this venture,â€ quips Barbara Andersen an activist and national delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2012.
The â€œState Wide Teleconferenceâ€ is a news sharing tool brought to you by Alaskans for Alaskans.Â There is no hidden agenda.Â It is direct, up frontÂ and honest.Â This teleconference is a mechanism designed for concerned citizens to â€œget the word outâ€ and raise awareness on topics that affect our everyday lives; directly or indirectly.Â The information you receive by listening in, you will not hear or find anywhere else.Â Our liberties are being lost due to lack of knowledge and action.Â Counter that; do not miss one meeting.Â — Pamela Goode
