Intelligent people know that one of ALEC's commands was to block voting rights. See alecexposed.org
The GOP doesn't like informed Americans to vote and their activities in other states are illegal, and will be stopped.

THE 7M MANDATE//////////C-street house---------The fellowship foundation/////the council for national policy//////JBS/The CNP///// CNP/Rev Moon////// Pastor Worley ==========Pat Robertson===== Billy Graham----------Jerry Fallwell 9glad he has fallen)---------Rev Moon----------Tim LaHaye----------Dr. James Wickstrom-----C Peter Wagner----------R J Rushdoony ----------The Christian Right, Dominionism, and Theocracy”,------- Ed Kalnins=== Sarah Palin’s long-time church in Wasilla is one such congregation. The most clear-cut example of NAR dominionism is the so-called “Seven Mountains Mandate”, which holds that dominionist Christians should control the whole world by infiltrating and dominating the “Seven Mountains” of culture:(1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion.

Dominionism is not a left-wing fantasy

A number of authors made charges similar to or derived from Joe Carter, web editor of First Things, who wrote:“The term ["dominionism"] was coined in the 1980s by [sociologist Sara] Diamond and is never used outside liberal blogs and websites. No reputable scholars use the term for it is a meaningless neologism that Diamond concocted for her dissertation.”

However, at the same time Diamond was working on her dissertation – published as the book Spiritual Warfare in 1989 – evangelical writer/researcher Albert James Dager was taking similarly critical aim, though from a different direction. In 1986 and ’87, he published a multi-issue essay “Kingdom Theology” in the publication Media Spotlight. In that text he also used the terms “Kingdom Now” or “Dominion” Theology. In 1990, Dager, too, published a book, Vengeance Is Ours: The Church in Dominion.
