    Thatcherites were/are huge buddies of ALEC.

    ALEC even (trying to remember) gave Thatcher a huge award, had some type of nonprofit link with a group in Uk (which ended up being illegal) and Uk has most foreign reps at ALEC meetings.  She was the privatization devil and ALEC loved her.

    ALECs hook with the foreign nationals is "free market" government, efficiency through privatization.  There has been a real push by ALEC since early 2000 to get reps from foreign nations to buy into their free market government philosophy - and the "hyperbole" of free market mantra sounds good - even though Chile / Pinochet proved it doesn't work.
