  •  You know your point is valid and I've often had (7+ / 0-)

    discussion where I argue that they insist on less government interference, fewer laws coming out of DC to force the states to comply with federal regulations and laws.

    Yet, ALEC - working out of DC - does the exact same thing, disseminate legislation out of DC to the states.  Difference is that where the federal government issues regulations beneficial to the citizens of a democratic society, ALEC's legislation is beneficial to businesses attempting to replace our democracy with corporatocracy.

    Same concept, two agendas issued from the Capitol of our nation - one for society and one for corporate interests.  Sadly, the corporatist have been winning for years now and  it won't be easy to defeat them and wrest democracy from their clutches.
