Boycotting ALEC Corporations - Could Kill You.

UPDATE:  1/09/12   For information on the #F29 action against ALEC corporations

Please take the time to read the entire announcement.

I always get a charge when I see an entry that is boycotting an ALEC Corporate Sector member.  I say to myself – “Bless their souls - good on them – they are wasting their time.”

I pulled a quick list of things you would not be able to buy if you boycotted ALEC members – take a look.

Even though the corporate names may have change – you probably get the point.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list –   it represents only about 10% of the corporations and organizations that belong to ALEC.

It's just a list that will hopefully focus your attention
on getting rid of the legislators who are ALEC members –
they are the real threat and the easiest to get rid of by not re-electing them.

It really doesn't matter what companies
are Private Enterprise Members
of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
There are too many of them and you couldn't live your normal life
if you tried to boycott all of them.

YOUR ALEC legislator is the issue -
They know better -
They are choosing to attend ALEC meetings
They are choosing to represent corporations rather than their constituency.
They are choosing to be immoral and unethical.
They are choosing to subvert our democratic process!

They do not deserve to be in office and must not be re-elected.

Our legislators have a choice
they can choose not to be involved with ALEC and
they can choose not to be involved with these ALEC corporations.

Legislators who choose to be members of ALEC
must be taught there are consequences
    for the immoral, unethical, Un-American choices you make.

And the consequence for belonging to ALEC is
    - you do not get re-elected
    - go find another job!

Thus - the legislators who are ALEC members 
must not be re-elected and
someone else needs to take their place
in your state legislature and
from your state in the US Congress.

When there are no ALEC legislative members
 the ALEC companies have no one to talk with and
no one to write corporate legislation for them

...   then the companies are no longer an issue   ...
ALEC goes away,
when the ALEC legislators are not re-elected.
