    I think identifying them officially as a lobby (they aren't) would be a good start.  Because they're not technically "lobbyists", they can get away with things other groups can't.  Existing law would curtail their activities somewhat if they were just called what they are.  Or maybe another classification is warranted, because ALEC does much more than merely lobby legislators.  They actually write legislation. With no open debate, no accountability, and no oversight.  It's the back room deal, all grown up.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
