  •  Thank you for shining the spotlight on (13+ / 0-)

    the Koch brothers and their efforts to manipulate the system.

    As a matter of fact, six wealthy families - Scaife, Bradley, Olin, Richardson, Coors, and Koch - have spent hundreds of millions of dollars, starting in the nineteen seventies, in an effort to turn Constitutional Democracy into a mask for Plutocracy.  

    We need to take a second look at Kos's Crashing the Gate.  The whole process is ably described in "How Did We Get Here," in the first chapter. pp. 24-31.

    This effort to hijack Democracy includes much more than the recent antics of the Koch brothers.  This MUST be brought to the attention of the American people.  These scoundrels have peddled their pseudo-intellectual drivel in almost total anonymity for far too long.  We must focus the spotlight on them, ceaselessly and relentlessly.  These scoundrels thrive on anonymity and shy away from publicity.

    I wish Michael Moore would do a film giving "the seclusive six" the Roger Smith treatment.
