Koch Brother’s are back at it again…
You may remember my post back in October about the billion dollar Koch (pronounced Coke) brother’s being the money behind the Tea Party. If not I highly recommend you read it, The Tea Party is NOT a Grassroots Organization. At least check out the cool, easy to read chart.
Well the Koch Brothers at back at it again, in full force. As read today on MSNBC.com, Conservative high-rollers gather to plot strategy, the Koch brothers sponsored a two day event to try to figure out how to put the GOP in the white house in 2012. So much for the voice of the “people”.
Even the British can see though the “Tea Party”. As written in The Independent World, “Most organisations which benefit from the Kochs’ largesse have one thing in common: they help advance an unflinching brand of libertarian conservatism. Some lobby against environmental regulation, or seek to undermine public perception of the threat of climate change, others battle taxes, trade unions and Barack Obama’s healthcare reforms.
Many play a crucial role in organising the Tea Party, the headline-prone right-wing movement which likes to tout its “grass-roots” credentials.”
Once again, thanks to the conservative led Supreme Court ruling known as Citizens United, the rich will have an opportunity to over shout the middle class and poor. Are you prepared to let billionaires shape our political landscape? I sure as hell am not.
Let’s not forget to use sound judgment people. Listen to your gut, it speaks the truth.
