    He should have included George Soros and any of the “Center for American Progress”, “Move on.Org”, and “America Coming Together”. The problem isn’t just the Koch brothers. it’s people like the Kochs and Soros being able to infuse the large amounts of funds into political campaigns.

    Conservatives (and their media, notably FOX News) like to deflect criticism by pointing at Soros and unions while conveniently ignoring the magnitude of the problem. The organizations you cited are an attempt to respond to the attacks from the better-financed right wing.
    .
    It’s also interesting to note that Republicans want nothing to do with campaign reform, as it’s working just fine for them.

    The cartoon shows the history of the Republican party.

    Why don’t the Koch Brothers just buy Kansas?
    -
    They could run it the way they want, and it would be paradise on Earth — tiny government, no taxes, everyone would carry semi-automatic weapons with high capacity clips, abortion and birth control would be illegal, as would unions, drilling and fracking everywhere (except Koch Estates), church and school would be merged.
    -
    Fox “news” would be their Pravda, and all Republicans would move there.

    Cool idea. Would federal dollars still be sent there in case of tornado damage?

    “The Party that Freed The Slaves and ended segregation?”
    .
    No, not really. Lincoln was trying to level the playing field between north and south. North had to pay their employees for the work they did, in the south, they relied on slaves for the bulk of the labor they didn’t have to pay.
    .
    The republicans did not end segregation.
    .
    Tigger honey, just what does it feel like to be so wrong so much of the time? From our view, you embarrass felines everywhere.

    “No, not really. Lincoln was trying to level the playing field between north and south. North had to pay their employees for the work they did, in the south, they relied on slaves for the bulk of the labor they didn’t have to pay.”

    There is a huge hole that is easily blown in this. I bring this up only because I hope you won’t use it again.

    Think about it. At the time the slaves were freed, the South could have cared less about what the North said. They were still slaves.

    Don’t forget the Republican’s new-found interest in “Voter Fraud” legislation.

    gee, let’s not get sidetracked. The ruling class – for the most part – have always been wealthy. Lincoln was on the bottom of the list but gee 1861 was not a banner year for anyone.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Presidents_by_net_worth

    A fact in 1861 less than 4% of American families made an income of $3000 a year or more.

    He that has the gold, rules……..

    So no one other than the rich had a chance to learn? No one could pick up a book? what?

    I suppose educational opportunities were few and far between when you are working 16 hour days to get the crops in.

    what is the excuse today?

    Maybe they SHOULD LEARN:

    Koch Industries = 59th on the list.

    The top 16 are democrat or leaning democrat.
