The solution to all of America's problems is staring us in the face: The Koch Brothers should/could be exiled or pushed out (shamed) out of America to Russia. Putin would love it! And besides all of the Koch money is probably not even in America anymore (parked offshore like every other billionaire's money), so there is no loss. Who knows what the Koch TAX BILL really is or should be . . . how un-American.
If Paul Ryan still likes Russian Kochs, then he should follow/toddle on after them, along with all the other paid for tv ad people the Kochs have bought over the years. We don't need them here in America when they aren't even real Americans.
Here is what they (Tea Partiers) really really stand for, via Bernie Sanders:
Here are just a few excerpts of the Libertarian Party platform that David Koch ran on in 1980:
“We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.”
“We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
“We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.”
“We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”
“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”
“We propose the abolition of the governmental Postal Service. The present system, in addition to being inefficient, encourages governmental surveillance of private correspondence. Pending abolition, we call for an end to the monopoly system and for allowing free competition in all aspects of postal service.”
“We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.”
“We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”
“As an interim measure, all criminal and civil sanctions against tax evasion should be terminated immediately.”
“We support repeal of all law which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.”
“We advocate the complete separation of education and State. Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.”
“We condemn compulsory education laws … and we call for the immediate repeal of such laws.”
“We support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private schools, whether profit or non-profit.”
“We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”
“We support abolition of the Department of Energy.”
“We call for the dissolution of all government agencies concerned with transportation, including the Department of Transportation.”
“We demand the return of America's railroad system to private ownership. We call for the privatization of the public roads and national highway system.”
“We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called "self-protection" equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”
“We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration.”
“We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”
“We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”
“We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs. All these government programs are privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient. The proper source of help for such persons is the voluntary efforts of private groups and individuals.”
“We call for the privatization of the inland waterways, and of the distribution system that brings water to industry, agriculture and households.”
“We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”
“We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
“We support the repeal of all state usury laws.”
Repeal state usury laws? Really? So the Payday Loan industry is something that is wholesome and nice? Abolition of consumer product safety? So while we are being poisoned by some unscrupulous chicken shit farmer and we die, we should thank you Koch Brother?
Most or all demands made in this list have been uttered by various Koch products over the years, such as Huckabee, Ryan, Gohmert, Christie, Romney, Cruz, Rand Paul, Walker, Reagan and so on. Most of the Republican party has been bought including the right-wing media that supports them (Rush, Hannity, O'Really). They can love on Putin to their heart's content while living in Russia. Buh-bye, and take your guns with you. We know you started the whole gun thing.
