Angie, the right wing fanatics try to use the constitution to promote their unethical views on what they perceive as their "freedoms".

If this is smaller government, what than would big government look like? These people that make up these bills do not belong in government that is supposed to represent all the people not just fellow religious fanatics. All state laws are subject to Federal laws that can and often do supersede them, some folks need to read the tenth amendment, it's not just make it up as you please. If for some unknown but bizarre reason a family wanted a first grade child to learn "hand gun safety" then the last place anyone would want to learn that is from the NRA. Intrusive, and Anti-American - each one of these 5 points.

Should end in the courts if legislators are ignorant enough of the constitution to actually pass any of them

I've come to the conclusion that the Repukelicans are nothing but a CULT - like Scientology is a Cult - a DANGEROUS Cult that is unfortunately backed by the extremely wealthy - EXTREMELY! - and therefore is politically powerful way beyond its actual numbers - and with far too many brainwashed, lock-step adherents, especially in the South {the former Confederate States}.
It is RELIGION BASED - that is, NON-LOGICAL. It is a powerful, organized belief system based on fear, paranoia and raw emotion.
It has a powerful effect in giving an {entirely false} world-view to its entranced followers - while seeming like demented lunacy to any sane human being.
This irrational CULT is armed, dangerous, and ready to annihilate all the benefits of compassionate civilization and fairness and democracy: all in the name of "defending itself" from the terrors of having its world-view the slightest bit undermined by reality and doubted. These people NEED their CERTAINTY; like an addict needs a constant fix of drugs in their bloodstream and brain.

1. Tennessee bill would prohibit discussion of "non-heterosexual" sexuality in schools and force teachers to warn parents if their kids identify as LGBT.

2. Missouri bill would require first-graders to study gun safety with the NRA.

3. Arkansas bill would ban abortions as early as five weeks into pregnancy.

4. Mississippi bill aims to exempt state from certain federal laws.

5. Two Arizona bills would require public school students to pledge loyalty to the Constitution and American flag.

Another Repug bullying tactic to force people to think and behave in what they consider as normal, moral and Godly. The right wing extremists are becoming so scary, they might as well be the American Taliban!

Well! Aren't THEY just the true representation of "Republican Party of Small Government?"

I can't imagine any of them passing....it's a smokescreen put out there by these fools who have NO CLUE how to actually be effective in government! Instead, they flap around about MORALITY while appealing to the small-minded and hateful.

Pathetic!

Tennessee and Missouri- two idiotic states.
Arkansas, I must admit. 5 weeks is not an "early abortion". I have a problem with aborting a "heartbeat".
Arizona, consistently teeters on the edge of the bizarre.

I'm sorry for a country in which some believe in freedom only for a few people.

Americans must stop and think about the optics the Republican Party utilizes as they are appearing increasingly more like a bunch of mentally deficient hillbillies who are so imbread, that the good ol' US of A will be looked uponéor are already, by the rest of the world as a bunch of crazies! Whew!
The GOP are no better than the Taliban; both are religious Zealots, uneducated for the most part who misconstrew their respective Holy Books so they can use chosen verses to abuse God's word to suit their own political agendas.
Speaking of Agendas, the only people or group with a gay agenda is the Republican Party putting teachers and parents on a collision course with the LGBT students whom are squarely stuck in the middle as a target.
At this point, the LGBT students are the intentional targets by the GOP unfortunately driving some of these students to committing suicide or a life riddled with drug and sexual abuse. Many will sell themselves looking for love, or making money to buy their drugs, or both. No matter, the LGBT students are ultimately the losers, thanks to the neo-cons in the Republican Party. And these people are supposed to be Chrictians! Not by my book!

Thanks, Carrie. Yes, AZ long ago passed into insanity. I'm glad to live in So. AZ where we are mostly free of those loonies up in the capital. And, redistricting worked a bit more in our favor as well...I now have 3 Dems in the state legislature---but it's still GOP heavy. My belief is that the rightwingnuts are focusing on these social issues rather than on the real problems that are financial, jobs and education. Nearly fell off my chair when I found out Gov. Brewski has a new plan to heavily fund education, as well as accept the ACA..."Obamacare".
In other states where the "American Taliban" is trying to take over, citizens should be targeting their legislatures with questions about their economy and jobs; as well as telling them to stop curbing their civil rights. What is all this sudden attack on our rights about? I thought they wanted LESS government.
