Our Representative Democracy is being held hostage and being sold off to a Shadowy Plutocracy. We need to take back our Representation, or we will lose the Democratic freedoms we say we enjoy. Considering that the Koch Brothers and ALEC have been shopping their Rubber Stamp Bills around again, I thought it may be pertinent to reprint an investigative article I wrote back in May 2014.
ALEC still pays for Legislators to "attend" their swanky political lobbying shindigs, including ex-Presidential candidates Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz (as of 2015's San Diego event on July 22nd at the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel, where all the perks are included all on ALEC's dime. (the cheapest rooms go for $180.oo with no amenities not even WiFi and the Suites start at $509.oo)
They didn't include the Federal Land Transfer push, because that, too, has now been sourced back to the Koch Brothers and ALEC.
The San Diego Free Press did a nice piece on the 2015 event:
and here are some more of their articles exposing this elite Plutocratic "Pay For Representation" scams:
ALEC now has a new offshoot group focused on local government, the American City County Exchange (ACCE) http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/American_City_County_Exchange so keep a CLOSE eye on your local Governance! Now more than ever it is time to step up to the plate and stand u for your rights.. Because the Plutocracy is already buying THEIR Representative Government.
And here are a couple of sites which show who still supports ie: gets paid by ALEC who also supposedly represent the People. See of YOUR Representative, City Council Member or Senator is on this list:
Scroll down and see if YOUR Representative is on the List !
