Republicans have been “Fooled”

Many International Corporations have used, bribed and conned, the ALEC organization led by Republicans. Foreign countries used them

 to their benefit for private there international personal agenda’s in the United States. 

Now only to drop ALEC organization going private, no longer needing Republicans help for their U.S. corporations, they’ve already gained all the

money, power and control they needed to control the U.S. Markets, by acquiring education, expertise, and Government contacts in the U.S. to

form their U.S. based Stand Alone Corporations! All Thanks to the laundry list of members and leaders of ALEC “Republican Led Organization!”

Who had no clue they were being set up and used, to turn around to be dropped!

America the puzzle is self-explanatory! There are many pieces of the puzzle unfolding, please view the additional ALEC Corporate Members
