ALEC a disease attacking society - nationally - and - State by State.

Filth hiding/operating in plain sight.

Really sad to see how successful such a disease is in some states.

It would appear Minnesota isn't immune.

Who else would promote Bachmann for the intelligence committee?

This would fall under the baffle.'em with bullshit category.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (22354) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

LOL

Bachman/intelligence = oxymoron?

BTW - move to amend is picking-up support in Mn.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

ALEC

Making ignorance palatable and profitable.

Hopefully movetoamend will out pace ALEC in the near future.

MTA ( I M O ) = 1st critical move needed to kick corpoRATs out of government influence.

I support your hope and circulate information on MTA often - so to reach more people who may not have heard of it as of yet.

ALEC, bringing tyranny to America, one State at a time.

Keep your eye on the slight of hand they perform at the federal level, while they are busy leveling democracy in your State.

Fully endorsed by those lovable libe(R)tarian curmudgeons. the Kochs and all their corporate buddies.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yes, indeed.

Should we also mention that Mississippi is the leading welfare State?

So in effect, ALEC is using it to drain taxes from more successful, generally unionized States, like they have for years?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yes, yes we should mention it.

Still busy fighting symptoms?

You should have referendums and rewrite the constitution.

The head of the snake is ALEC/Wallstreet.

So many have lost sight of that simple concept.

OccupyWallStreet!!

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yep. There are those who insist on using fear propaganda.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Don't forget the utilization of REAL "wedge issues" like gun control and abortion.

Blink and something "evil" will be instituted in your State, while folks are still yelling about what they just saw on TV.

How many people in America know what an "emergency manager" is, or what they are empowered to do?

Far too few.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Not too many but they might just have to learn real quick.

[-] -1 points by niphtrique (323) from Sneek, FR 1 year ago

You should have something to end the rule of Wall Street:

Do not fight the symptoms.

Look "Frenchy" you aren't getting the land back. You should probably go back and take a real damn good look at what is going on in France and advocate there.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

They're NOT the symptom.

They're the vector.

Neolibe(R)tarians are the disease.

[-] -2 points by niphtrique (323) from Sneek, FR 1 year ago

I think many people are not ready for real solutions.

If you can vote out any law in a referendum then there is no gain in lobbying.

This is a solution that will last. I should not pick the wrong words again.

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Must I remind you of the tyranny in Michigan?

Voters voted out the tyranny.

ALEC made sure Snyder re instituted it without a hitch.

Without so much as a nod to actual voters.

Tyranny, one State at a time.

[-] -2 points by niphtrique (323) from Sneek, FR 1 year ago

A referendum law like in Switzerland can solve this.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Switzerland is one of those places they play hide the money.

Why do you have trouble understanding what is happening in Michigan?

Never heard of the place?

[-] 0 points by niphtrique (323) from Sneek, FR 1 year ago

I have read the document but for the rest I know little of what is happening because I do not live in the US. Still, I do not see why referendums cannot solve this issue.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

What document have you read?

ALEC pissed on the voter referendum.

[-] 0 points by niphtrique (323) from Sneek, FR 1 year ago

I have read the starting document of this thread.

In Switzerland referendums are binding and the people can demand a referendum on any issue if there are enough people supporting the proposal.

The government of Switzerland is obliged to act according to the referendum outcome.

You can write a law to outlaw ALEC and pass it in a referendum if it is done like in Switzerland.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

That's Switzerland.

Here in the American States ALEC and it's corporate sponsors rule the (R)epelican't party, and work towards the destruction of our nation.

Here's some words from their founder.

He also helped found many other anti-democratic institutions like the Heritage Foundation.

I know that the corporations are ruling the US.

ALEC is just bringing corporate rule another step forwards.

The only way to stop this, is solving the root causes, which are in a) the political system and b) the financial system.

That requires another way of thinking. The political system can be controlled by the people with binding referendums. The financial system can be changed with natural money (local currencies without interest). More info on natural money, see:

http://www.naturalmoney.org/full-theory.html

It is my mission to work out solutions for those problems. I do not expect to get a warm welcome as the solutions are out of the ordinary, so most people will not see that they are solutions.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

It might work in France, but you will never get it by ALEC.
