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.

Look Out Farmer John, they are coming after your farm subsidies too.
The Republican House of Representatives Put off bringing up the Farm Bill Until AFTER the Election.
I wonder why????
The GOP has said there will be No discussion and no debates on the Farm Bill until AFTER the Election. The GOP KNOWS that the Tea Party ongress is going to pitch a fit to get to defund and get rid of the Farm Bill. They don't want the farmers to get upset Before the Election.
I can see Mitch McConnell publicly appealing to the Tea Party to pass the Farm Bill, to keep the farmers voting for him, doncha know.
Remember, you read it first right here.

The Republicans just made their 7th attempt to torpedo my computer.

Evidently, the Republicans don't believe in Freedom of Speech.

I always wondered WHY Republicans NEVER mention Republican President Eisenhower, so I decided to take a look at Eisenhower. Lo and behold, I found out the GOP Hates Ike, and the feeling was mutual. Eisenhower Hated Republican Conservatives and DESPISED Right Wing Republicans.
Imagine That!

Republican President Eisenhower wrote this letter in 1954.
Eisenhower did NOT like Republican Conservatives and Eisenhower despised Republican Right Wingers.
Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that these people would destroy the Republican Party if they had their way and tried to Abolish Social Security and Unemployment Insurance under the Republican Party Banner.

Eisenhower is speaking about HL Hunt of Hunt Foods, and the Big Oil Koch Brother's Family, along with other Billionaires in the Third Paragraph.

Eisenhower calls them "Stupid" for trying to get rid of Social Security and Unemployment Insurance.
Eisenhower said the Republican Party would wind up in the dust bin of history if the GOP let these people try to get rid of Social Security and Unemployment Insurance under the Republican banner. Eisenhower called them a "negligible splinter group."

Ike would be astounded to see how they have grown in numbers and power since his day.

Fred Koch was a Founding Member of the John Birch Society. Fred Koch is the Father of the Multi-Billionaire Koch Brothers. Fred Koch also served on the Board of the John Birch Society.
Fred Koch and several other Billionaires poured $ Millions of Dollars into the John Birch Society every year, for decades.

John Birch Society Members have joined the Republican Tea Party in droves.
These John Birch Society Members who hold dual memberships in both the John Birch Society and the Tea Party, are the most fanatical members of the Tea Party.

The John Birchers see a Communist behind every tree and bush, and they never met a Conspiracy Theory that they didn't like.

The John Birch Society almost went under back in the late 1950's and 1960's when they lost numerous Defamation Lawsuits filed by prominent Americans that the John Birch Society wrongly identified as Communists.

Well, now they are back in force.
Did anyone ever ask Florida Tea Party Congressman Allen West if he belongs to the John Birch Society? He sees Communists everywhere.

The John Birch Society wants the entire Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt "New Deal" Programs, Labor Laws, and Policies Repealed.
The John Birch Society calls all of the "New Deal" Legislation, including Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance Socialism, and the John Birch Society wants these programs abolished, along with the entire Roosevelt New Deal Legislation.

The John Birch Society calls Socialism, "Creeping Communism." And anything they call Socialism must be destroyed.
The movement to Abolish Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Medicare, and all other Social Safety Net Programs did NOT start yesterday.
This has been going on for decades.

The John Birch Society Celebrates the Legacy of the Koch Family to the JBS.

They don't like School Teachers or College Professors. They don't like, Union Labor or Labor Laws(you know, things like 40 hour work weeks, overtime pay, Holidays off, week-ends off, or Child Labor Laws) and they don't like what they call Liberal Clergymen. See if you made their list.
They don't like City, Sounty, State, or Federal Employees, they say, you need to go get a REAL Job.
But, they will happily take a Congressional Seat if you will elect them.
These people are not purists, they will take a government job in a New York second if it gives them power over other people.

The Cato Institute, The Washington Post

Support for Social Security Privatization

The Cato Institute has been a long-time advocate of Social Security privatization. A chief early architect of Cato's thinking on private accounts was Peter J. Ferrara. The Washington Post's Thomas Edsall wrote in February 2005: "The emergence of the center-right phalanx backing the Social Security proposal is a major victory for the Cato Institute, a prominent libertarian group. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Cato was almost alone in its willingness to challenge the legitimacy of the existing Social Security system, a politically sacrosanct retirement program. Recognizing the wariness of other conservatives to tackle Social Security, Cato in 1983 published an article calling for privatization of the system. The article argued that companies that stand to profit from privatization --'the banks, insurance companies and other institutions that will gain'-- had to be brought into alliance. Second, the article called for initiation of 'guerrilla warfare against both the current Social Security system and the coalition that supports it.'"[16]

By early 2005, business groups such as the Business Roundtable and the National Association of Manufacturers and political groups like Progress for America were devoting millions of dollars to the campaign to get rid of the existing Social Security program. It is worth noting that the website SocialSecurity.org is run by the Cato Institute, under the heading Project on Social Security Choice.
__________
The Cato Institute is devising a plan to use the Privatization of Social Security as a step toward the abolition of Social Security. This tactic avoids the inevitable nasty confrontation that a Frontal Attack on Social Security would produce.

Guess who is, and has been, donating more than half of the operating money to the Cato Institute?

Guess who serves on the Board of the Cato
Institute?

Guess who Founded and Bankrolled the Cato Intitute?

Guess who recently Sued to gain Total Control of the Cato Institute?

Answer: The Multi-Billionaire Koch Brothers who want Social Security Abolished.

Always follow the money$. No big surprise here.

Now ain't that a Shocker? They want to Privatize, and then, Abolish Social Security and Medicare.

With billions of dollars at stake, a large network of influential conservative groups is mounting a high-priced campaign to help the White House win passage of legislation to partially privatize Social Security and limit class-action lawsuits.

Corporate America, the financial services industry, conservative think tanks, much of the Washington trade association community, the Republican Party and GOP lobbyists and consultants are prepared to spend $200 million or more to influence the outcome of two of the toughest legislative fights in recent memory.
Changing the way Social Security pays out benefits, as President Bush wants to do, is central to the extensive, multimillion-dollar conservative effort.(Bradley C. Bower -- AP)

Many of these same interest groups backed Bush administration tax cuts, the 2003 Medicare prescription drug legislation and proposed energy initiatives. As President Bush begins his second term, the alliance has become an institutional fixture, providing both money and manpower to further the Bush agenda and strengthen the Republican Party apparatus.

Dang! These boys have some real horsepower, and Billions of Dollars to buy anything they want.

GOP Senate Candidate Tommy Thompson, "Who Better than me to do away with Medicare and Medicaid?"

Republican Tea Party Member Tommy Thompson was speaking at a TEA Party Meeting when someone recorded his speech with a video camera.

These small video cameras are like Superman's Kryptonite for Republican Candidates speaking behind closed doors to their own like-minded groups.

When the doors close, the Truth comes out.

I don't care if the Tea Party wants to get rid of Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, and ALL other Social Safety Net Programs, just Tell the Public the Truth.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

I want them to stop Lying and deceiving people to get Elected.

Tommy Thompson on video saying, "Who better than me to get rid of Medicare and Medicaid?

Romney told Obama in last week's debate that he was going to follow Tommy Thompson's plan on Medicare and Medicaid.
I almost fell out of the chair, Obama said nothing about it.
