The ALEC spokespersons are really getting into it. Here’s some snips – I suggest you read thewhole article – really, ‘cause the snips below are inadequate and just a tease.
This article today out of Colorado.

My problems with ALEC may sound innocent enough to you, even pathetic given the power of big corporations, but to ALEC co-director Jonathan Williams, my views of ALEC and my actions against ALEC make me a Marxist. On Denver's KLZ radio April 26, he said:
"You know," Williams told KLZ, "at the end of the day though, companies should realize that capitalists are the folks who buy their products. The Marxists that are coming after us and coming after them are the folks who want to see them gone anyways."
Jason Salzman :: On radio, ALEC co-director accuses ALEC critics of being "Marxists"
Still, I consider myself fringe, but Williams doesn't see the Marxists behind the anti-ALEC campaign as a rag-tag group. He didn't mention Obama as being in the Marxist fold, but Williams sees real, serious power in the hands of American Marxists these days as they go after ALEC:
"There is a very coordinated intimidation campaign against some of our corporate sponsors and against many of our legislators across the country by folks who disagree with free-enterprise policy," ALEC's Williams told KLZ. "And they try to use extortionist techniques to intimidate the corporate members from getting involved. It's been a really sad state of affairs that we've been seeing over the last few weeks and some of the companies crumbling under these intimidation tactics."
≥≥≥≥≥≥≤≤≤Interesting choice of words here – by Jonathan Williams director of ALEC's Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force and bullshitter extraordinaire when it comes to training those poor ol’ neglected state legislators on how to reform the state budgets from ALEC’s toolkit – hah!
Marxists – eh? Interesting choice of words.
Williams could have just called us communists.
But most folks would have known we were not communists
– whereas most folks don’t know what a Marxist is
– they just assume it’s bad – ‘cause Williams used it in a disparaging way on the radio.
Now – if I combine that with the release that ALEC sent out to their State Chairs a year ago –
That would now make me
A radical Marxist opponent – of ALEC
By the time ALEC is destroyed – my title should be pretty impressive.
Well in the true sense of art of battle – the gauntlet has been thrown.
William’s thrust: Me - Marxist
My parry: ALEC - FASCISTS!
God, I love political name-calling! It’s so juvenile and fun
- when you are an adult
Next they will probably have Rush call us all sluts – ooo – ooo
