I'm Boycotting Diageo Alcohol Products, Ketel One, José Cuervo, Johnnie Walker etc...

Through ALEC, Global Corporations Are Scheming to Rewrite YOUR Rights and Boost THEIR Revenue.

Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. In ALEC's own words, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state. DO YOU? http://alecexposed.org

As a restaurant owner I am outraged that Diageo is the corporate board of ALEC. I plan on boycotting their brands. I don't buy many of their products to begin with. Here is their portfolio:
