    ALEC's professed Conservative stance and agenda to further these exploitations.  I said the other day that corporations have used the Conservative faction of the Republican party as a means of acquiring wealth, power and influence, without really being conservative in their beliefs.  They are being used as a corporate tool to keep taxes down for the wealthiest in our society, regulations to a minimum and profits flowing the most generously.

    Being able to do all of that while not being conservative yourself, is quite an accomplishment.  There are fewer Dem's involved in this crap and we can only presume thats because for the most part Dem's refuse to cash in on something that works to diminish wages, jobs or exploitation of the weakest among us - prisoners.

      people - who essentially lead Republican legislative and policy choices - as anything but "conservatives", the easier it will be to raise more critical thinking in the actual conservatives who continue to cling onto that party out of tradition, rather than actual, ideological alignment.  Help them self-question why they are supporting a corporate agenda which actually undermines notions of more fair, conservative governing and culture.
