Theres nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it. William James
A lie told enough becomes the truth. Vladimir Lenin
Perhaps the most frequently used logical fallacy in the world of politics and public policy today is the argument of assertion, or the idea that someone can legitimately argue a point by merely declaring that something is true, regardless of contradiction. Thus far in 2014, the solar lobby and environmental activists have together employed this strategy to attack ALEC as a legislative membership organization and our stance on the issue of net metering reform.
The Alliance for Solar Choice (TASC), a lobbying organization comprised of the nations largest solar installers, and other similar groups have routinely and willfully mischaracterized ALECs position on the role that distributed generation (DG) technologies should play in the future and the need for net metering reform in many states across the nation. Furthermore, they have publicly declared victory over the passage of net metering legislation in a handful of statesincluding Utah and Kansasthat have supposedly been ALEC defeats.
Unfortunately for them, they couldnt be more incorrect.
