Yes, there really is a vast conservative conspiracy. Abe and Joe look at ALEC.

 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.
