ALEC: for evil

Meet ALEC — and Nick Rathod, the guy fighting back


For decades, corporations have found Republicans ready to do their bidding thanks to a shadowy outfit known as ALEC. But Nick Rathod, a preacher’s son, has a plan to fight back.

The State Innovation Exchange, SiX, is a new “action tank” that aims to achieve long-term progressive policy gains in states and localities across the US. Elected officials and staff across the country are writing legislation that will shape America’s future. SiX provides trusted, expert resources to inform and enhance that work, building the legislative wing of the progressive movement. SiX aims to encourage cross-pollination among states, providing a platform for the best ideas to spread and grow. The group is an ally in tough fights, and it provides cover in places where its resources make the biggest impact.

With a SiX account, users can access a legislative library, follow the activity of key legislators, and track issues as they evolve in each of the states. It’s an unprecedented set of tools designed to ensure the best thinking on current issues is used to advance progressive legislation in all 50 states.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
