Who Hates You?
I believe I now have discovered who hates most Americans.
It’s not ISIS, foreign terrorists, Al-Qaeda, or the current neocon bad boy, Russian President Vladimir Putin.
No, the main American-hater is ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council.
Why? Because ALEC is both the author and implementing tool of nearly every bill passed into law by state and federal legislators that has directly lowered our (the 99.9% of Americans) quality of life, heightened the divide between poor and wealthy, eroded our privacy and attempted to extinguish our rights.
ALEC is the enemy of Americans.
A humanist by choice, I’ve come to understand that a person’s actions count more than his/her words. For me, our government’s reason for being is to implement and enforce legislation that passes this Golden Rule test: if it is not good for everyone... it's not good for anyone.
“In ALEC’s own words: corporations have ‘a VOICE and a VOTE’ on specific changes to the law that are proposed in your state.”
“Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights.”
“These so-called ‘model bills’ reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations.” (1.)

2. My apology goes to Telly Savalas for my “corruption” of his famous quote to fit ALEC. As Kojak, a police officer, Telly said: "Who loves ya baby!".
