ALEC exposed
Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. Through ALEC, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state. DO YOU?

1. The members of ALEC are terrorists and traitors
in my opinion
and should be investigated under the RICO ACT

2. RICO yes, but words have specific meaning
and treason... do not reach that level.

3. According to the Constitution, the people own the government
When a group of people set out to destroy different groups of people
so the minority group can benefit, then that is undermining the government

When groups of elected politicians actively participate in the minority group
after swearing an oath to the Constitution, what would you call this action??

When an elected politician actively works to put their needs above the needs of the country
what would you call it??

When a politician works to harm the people of this country what would you call it??

One has to remember that ALEC can not do their dirty work without active participation
of politicians.

5. I would think that a conspiracy that weakens the American people
that is in the process of undermining the government of this country is a traitorous act

6. Not by the actual legal pesky definition
due to the history with King George our standards for it are very high. Why? King George used it as a means of suppression... you could be convicted for mere thought crime and hung.
