ALEC - Your Term is Up #VoteNo2ALEC

Last week I introduced you to the Congressional members of ALEC.
IMPORTANT to note 
- If you want to get the house back in 2014 
  The entire nation will be better off for it!

In addition to the congressional races - we also have to fight the infestation of the extremist, pro-corporate, right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council at the state, county and local levels.

ALEC must be removed from our government.
ALEC is a PRIVATE 501c3 organization that doesn't give a damn about you and me 
- the only thing ALEC is concerned with is keeping 98% of its revenues that come from
     ALEC Corporations 
- through any means possible.

I will try to update this list on a regular basis - it will depend on how often I am able to find announcements that I can pass on to you - the truthseeker - the keyper of America's democracy.

It is your duty - to use your power in the voting booth to rid America of these pro-corporate legislato4rs who do not serve the American people!!
