Defeating ALEC = Removing Corporate Greed

One of the ways to remove corporate greed from politics is to make sure that ALL state legislative members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and ALL ALEC ALUMNI in Congress are not re-elected.  Once that is completed we have to make sure we do not elect people who sympathize with the ALEC party.

ALEC will implode if they do not have legislators to  promote and introduce corporate focused legislation for ALEC's private enterprise / corporate sector members.

This link will give you the most comprehensive member lists of ALEC (past and present) that has been distributed multiple times for people to take action.  This is the largest compiled list of people affiliated with ALEC - EVER!  Over 2,000 names of people who are or have been affiliated with ALEC are on that list!

If you are waiting for the lists to be perfect – a reminder – perfect does not exist! We have to work with the information that we have now to eliminate this horrible scourge (ALEC) from our political landscape.

 ALEC members MUST be removed from public service at any and all levels. 

ALEC just completed their annual conference in August  where ALEC Corporations told your legislators what legislation they wanted to have passed and what legislation they did not want to have passed.

ALEC members are not serving the public – they are serving the ALEC corporations.  It does not matter how ALEC or their members spin this story over the next couple months it is important for you – to remember and to talk about the following fact:
Your ALEC legislator meets with ALEC corporate sector / private enterprise members  multiple times a year to draft, revise and vote on corporate focused legislation that is brought back into your state

 – so when push come to shove – it is evident who your legislator is representing – the ALEC corporations.

Past members are important – because they may come up for a state or federal appointment.

“[Republican lawmakers] really feel like this group represents what they believe in, what they are trying to accomplish,” the source said, “and I only think you’re going to see their numbers grow next year as the focus shifts to policy issues instead of the budget. I think only [the 2012 election] can bring [ALEC’s] numbers down.”

ALEC members and those affiliated with ALEC in any manner

Without state and federal legislators ALEC will cease to exist and it will implode.
