In the early 1970s, a group of conservative lawmakers and businesspeople realized that synchronicity between the governments of different states was the path to ideological supremacy. The American Legislative Exchange Council -- ALEC -- was born. The group "assists" state legislators -- many of whom constitute ALEC's membership -- to draft legislation that downsizes government, removes corporate regulations, and makes it harder to hold wealthy miscreants to account.

And ever since the 2010 election swept conservatives into power in statehouses across the nation, ALEC has set about its business with a vengeance.
