    ALEC responds to 11Alive Investigators report

    Why anyone would believe that "We the People" any longer have a voice in American politics is beyond comprehension. The link here goes to an Atlanta TV station which had a little encounter with ALEC

    ALEC responds to 11Alive Investigators report

    ATLANTA (WXIA) -- The 11Alive Investigators caught legislators and lobbyists meeting behind closed doors in an investigation that has been seen by millions nationwide.

    Now, the organization that put the corporations and lawmakers together at a Savannah resort is responding.

    Last month's meeting was at a Savannah resort, where the American Legislative Exchange Council -- or ALEC – had us kicked out when we tried to get into the "back room" where Georgia lawmakers and corporations were creating legislation.
    The whole mess started by accident, the reporter was staying at the hotel when he first ran into lobbyists in the hotel's bar.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Im not one that thinks "we the people" have any voice whatsoever in policy. I read the entire report, very sick.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
