To ALEC - We Will Take Our Country Back!

One of the things that I find most frustrating on a regular basis is the fact that the fight to expose ALEC is left to those of us with the momentum at the grass roots level to keep the energy up and going.  We are the foot soldiers - no one else with any REAL power to affect change is stepping up to the plate to help us.  It has been left in our hands and we will take our country back.  We will - because our country means more to us than it does to those trying to destroy it.

I find it totally frustrating that even liberal media will spend at most - maybe ten minutes - talking about ALEC.  An hour on Weiner's weiner - but only ten minutes on the destruction of democracy.

I find it totally frustrating that 99.999% of Democratic (big D) legislators are sitting on their butts and not saying a word about this despicable organization and the model legislation that is in every state house in the country.  They just sit there for the most part, with their thumb up their butt and watch ALEC legislation go through - not saying a word - not talking to the media - just sitting back and watching the whole concept of government by representation bastardized by ALEC legislators.

And then once in awhile I get a glimmer of hope - I see an article by someone well known and well read - where they actually talk about ALEC.

And that's what I present to you in this entry - an article by Jim Hightower - well worth your time to read.

If you don’t know what ALEC is - it is time you did –
please read this, or this,  or this.

“Our members join for the purpose of having a seat at the table. That’s just what we do, that’s the service we offer. The organization is supported by money from the corporate sector, and, by paying to be members, corporations are allowed the opportunity to sit down at the table and discuss the issues that they have an interest in.” Dennis Bartlett, ALEC, 1997

HELL they are not only buying a seat at the ALEC table,
  They are buying a hidden seat in every State legislature.
  They are buying a hidden seat in the Federal government.
  They are destroying our democracy.

We only need the next two elections coming up
to remove all ALEC members from the state and federal government.

Now is our time to start the journey and take our country back.
