ALEC Exposed

Post by sbraney on Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:28 pm

It looks like while the Fox Noise machine had the goomers in an uproar over "socialized" medicine, the republicon apparatchik was working feverishly around the clock to get the first and most important segment of it's plan in place - take over state gov't, because they would then have the power to redistrict in a manner that would ensure permanent republicon seats. How could this have been overlooked by the so-called "left" especially when Tom DeLay was under fire for doing this very thing in Texas? Not only has our federal gov't been privatized compliments of Citizens United, but our state legislatures as well. Now the oligarchs can begin transferring our nation's wealth - we're just around to pick up their tab.

"Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991, Yeltsin, vowing to transform Russia's socialist command economy into a free market economy, endorsed price liberalization and privatization programs. Due to the method of privatization, a good deal of the national wealth fell into the hands of a small group of oligarchs" (Think it can't happen here???)

“Dozens of corporations are investing millions of dollars a year to write business-friendly legislation that is being made into law in statehouses coast to coast, with no regard for the public interest,” says Bob Edgar of Common Cause. “This is proof positive of the depth and scope of the corporate reach into our democratic processes.” The full archive of ALEC documents is available at a new website, www.alecexposed.org
