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]

Koch credits the campaign of Roger MacBride as his inspiration for getting involved in politics, telling a reporter from New York magazine:


Here was a great guy, advocating all the things I believed in. He wanted less government and taxes, and was talking about repealing all these victimless crime laws that accumulated on the books. I have friends who smoke pot. I know many homosexuals. It's ridiculous to treat them as criminals—and here was someone running for president, saying just that.[12]

According to Koch, he gave his own Vice Presidential campaign $100,000 a month after being chosen as Ed Clark's running mate. "We'd like to abolish the Federal Elections Commission and all the limits on campaign spending anyway," Koch told New York magazine's Rinker Buck in 1980. When asked why he ran, Koch replied: "Lord knows I didn't need a job, but I believe in what the Libertarians are saying. I suppose if they hadn't come along, I could have been a big Republican from Wichita. But hell—everybody from Kansas is a Republican."[12]

YES!!!!!!!! abolish Social Security....but give me back what I paid in through the years and quit paying immigrants and people who have never contributed a penny into the system. The leeches and cockroaches have drained and ruined the system.

You betcha! That would be a sweet check. Let us decide what we want to do with it and how to spend it.^5 on the leeches and cockroaches remark. And all the other tax paid social programs they get but hard working Americans can't get when times are tough.

I don't understand the part of the SS system that gives the new older immigrants a check when they come here. I took my mother by for questions, and the waiting room was FULL of Hispanics and other immigrants . I asked what was going on and was told there was provisions to start them drawing a check when they arrived if they were old enough even though they or their family had never put in a single penny . Why do we pay people who never contributed or supported the system?

The GOP is not against women's rights. Put down the Kool-Aid.
