A couple of nights ago on one of the our right wing TV stations that I get (I only get right wing news on Charter Basic Cable) - they had a guy on that pontificated about Minnesota's stupid Voter ID Act - presented to us by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) - through their "model legislation" (HA! - should be called "warped & distorted Republican legislation").
I have researched ALEC enough to know that what their philosophy was 20 years ago - is the same philosophy they hold today and they are introducing the same "warped & distorted Republican legislation" - today that they presented to their members in 1995.
EVERY TIME - you see someone defending these horrible and costly voter ID laws that states are trying to enact - remember this video of ALEC's Founder - Paul Weyrich.
He founded the American Legislative Exchange Council political party.
He built the ALEC philosophy, the ALEC platfrom, recruited ALEC corporate constituents and designed training for ALEC legislators.
This is what ALEC believes - it's part of the ALEC party platform.
DO NOT BE FOOLED!
DO NOT FORGET THIS VIDEO!
Every ALEC legislators needs to be removed from office -
PLEASE work as hard as you can to make sure that all state and federal ALEC legislators ARE NOT re-elected.
