As people become more aware of the Pay-to-Play via campaign contributions, lobbying etc – the price of buying a political puppet has gone up and has become less effective manner of doing business.
last year when the Center for Media & Democracy’s Sourcewatch released their report on the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the list of politicians who were members – there was a rush by these politicians to either divest themselves from ALEC or whitewash their websites of all traces of ALEC. The same happened with a number of corporate members.
There was also an article I stumbled across last week where ALEC is asking members not to refer to ALEC as ALEC, but rather to use “exchange council” instead, due to the negative image of ALEC
Next we need shareholders to question the extensive use of bullying the public, which, as I know all to well, is quite expensive. Intimidation attempts have a very high price tag.
They also need to question the use of psyops.
The American Legislative Exchange Council, which for decades has been known by the acronym “ALEC,” is asking members to stop calling it ALEC since the name is now associated with a “distant, mysterious, Washington alphabet organization of unknown intentions.”
