The NRA and ALEC: Inextricably Tied Together

December 22, 2012

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the National Rifle Association (NRA) are in bed together in an incestuous relationship that goes back decades.

This website: ALEC Exposed is an excellent source on all news relating to ALEC and what they do.  If you are unaware of how ALEC is and what they do, watch the below video and visit the website.  ALEC is a legislation mill, in other words many of the right-wing ideas that finds their way into our laws (lax gun laws, anti-teaching/union laws, anti-choice laws) have their genesis within ALEC – they basically write the laws and work to get their “lackey” politicians elected to advance their agenda.

This is another example of money buying politicians!  Money needs to be removed from politics, we need public financing of elections where every candidate gets a set amount, no more, no less.  We will continue this charade in our political system until the money, the dirty money, is gone.
