The Koch Brothers Run GOP

Oil tycoon brothers Charles and David Koch are two gigantic genius hypocrites. Aside from that, they are also unfortunately dangerous. Why? Well because David and Charles Koch are billionaires (each personally worth about $21.5 billion) with selfish ideas. They preach libertinism, small government and conservative ideas. This is fine and dandy, except they accept corporate welfare, bailouts for a failing Alaskan oil refinery, and use government subsidies to maximize their own profits. Examples? They lease federal land for their agribusiness for free. Koch logs public forests for private gain- the tax payers cover operating costs. They have won massive government contracts using their close relationship with the Bush administration.(about $85 million in federal government contracts-mostly from the Department of Defense) This sounds more socialistic than libertarian doesn’t it?

Koch Industries and Buying Government

Oil refineries, Brawny paper towels, Mardi-Gras napkins, Angel Soft, Quilted Northern, Stainmaster carpet, Georgia Pacific lumber, formaldehyde manufacturing, Lycra, Dixie cups, Freedom Works, Americans For Prosperity and the GOP.

What do all of these things have in common? They all are owned/heavily funded by the Koch brothers of Koch Industries.

Aside from the fact that I personally believe that corporations are dipping their hands into too many industries, what bothers me the most is that corporations are dipping into our government. “For the People, By the People”, not “For the Corporations, By the Corporations”.
