Shine a bright light on GOP Kochsucker death cult
The GOP is so far off the rails that they don't resemble what they were even 30 years ago. It is absolutely imperative to understand the Koch Bro and other billionaires (Mercers and others) influence in order to be able to do something about it.
They are complicit in the rise of Trump, who really has 2 masters: Putin and Koch.
Read Dark Money by Jane Mayer. You need to understand the enemy before you can resist them.
Thank you. Thank you . Thank you.
If Democrats and their allies want to know what to fuss about 24/7 it is exactly what you laid out.
if I could rec this a million times I would.
But the book is a must read. It will have you shaking with rage, but it is so important. The only way to fight the infection is to know that you have one in the first place.
Felt the same as you, enraged - as everyone should be. She laid it out bare.
I guess it's called the 'Kochtopus' for a reason.
There have been a couple threads about understanding Trump voters. The only thing to understand is that millions of Americans are suffering from stockholm syndrome, they've fed themselves on rhetoric whipped up by a small coterie of anarcho-capitalists. The harm the Kochs have done outweigh any good you see them occasionally doing.
You can make a point without it.
Im willing to bet there is some shady info they're privy to that led to a schism in their support
With that much at stake it makes sense for Mercer to sink a billion or two into lobbying (read : buying politicians).
And he was down in the 500th richest range IIRC.
Why do people think that family are so rich and powerful?
Just askin ... they're nowhere NEAR Koch rich those dudes are top 15 ...
