Paul Weyrich (founder of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC):
"Many of our Christians have what I call the goo-goo syndrome — good government. They want everybody to vote. I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. They never have been from the beginning of our country, and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."
And then today there is this in the SLC Tribune story about the ALEC Annual Meeting
"But what’s going on with the attacks … is really an extortionist campaign."ALEC spokeswoman Kaitlyn Buss says the group has never hidden its business-oriented agenda."We do value the input and opinions of job creators and representatives of the business and nonprofit community, as these are the representatives of free enterprise," she said. "But what’s going on with the attacks … is really an extortionist campaign."She says Common Cause and others are liberal groups "masquerading as a good-government watchdog," but they are not forthcoming about their agendas and backing, either.
NOPE - what is going on is the free-market at work.
That is what ALEC supports - but only when it creates additional revenue Corporate Secotr Profit members.
And then there is this
Let's see - the choice is
Good government of ALEC fascism
ALEC fascism or good government.
EASY CHOICE - I choose good government!!!!!
