Political career

Koch was the Libertarian Party's vice-presidential candidate in the 1980 presidential election, sharing the party ticket with presidential candidate Ed Clark. The Clark–Koch ticket promising to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve Board, welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies including the SEC, EPA, ICC, FTC, OSHA, FBI, CIA, and DOE.[2][12] The ticket received 921,128 votes, 1.06% of the total nationwide vote,[13] the Libertarian Party national ticket's best showing to date.[14] The Koch brothers were proud of what they had accomplished.“Compared to what [the Libertarians had] gotten before,” Charles said,“and where we were as a movement or as a political/ideological point of view, that was pretty remarkable, to get 1 percent of the vote.”[15]

After the bid, according to journalist Brian Doherty's Radicals for Capitalism, Koch viewed politicians as "actors playing out a script".[2][16]

David Koch and Clark recieved 1% of the Vote, now where have I heard 1% before? Oh Yes, those are the wealthiest people in the USA. They don't NEED Social Security.

Farmer John, did you notice he calls for the abolition of ALL Farm Subsidies.
If you recall the Congress is full of Tea Party Members who hate Farm Subsidies.

Did you notice that the Republicans put off Debate and Voting on the Farm Bill until AFTER the Election? What do you think that means Farmer John?
The Tea Party is coming after you and the Republicans know it.
