School Boards, Planning Commissions, Etc.
This subversion was initiated by Fred Koch with the John Birch Society to ultimately turn control the United States over to a handful of rich, white men. Later, his sons would rebrand the JBS as Libertarians, and more recently, the Tea Party.
This continuing effort is funded and directed by lunatic billionaires who are using the Republican party to eliminate women’s rights, civil rights, public education, social security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, unions, the post office, health and safety regulations, and the whole litany of Fred Koch’s dream of a libertarian utopia.

Voting records show that Republicans have consistently voted for corporations and against people. Tax breaks for the ultra rich and cuts in programs for the poor are part of their daily routine.
How can anyone be so stupid as to vote for these puppets of the obscenely rich?
Red and grey
40 years of the best marketing campaign that money can buy, that’s how. This libertarian fantasy has turned some Americans into selfish, greedy, materialistic, uncouth capitalists who are more than willing to vote to take food out of the mouths of poor, black children, and anyone else they feel don’t deserve ‘handouts’ of taxpayer dollars.

Why am I writing about such a sensitive topic?
Because we all care about our friends and family members who have fallen under the spell of these flag waving, pro-money, racist, rude, crude, misguided miscreants.
We don’t want to lose our friends and loved ones, so what do we do?
If you care about friends and family, get out and vote for Democrats. Vote for public schools and free college tuition so that we will have some intelligent, educated people to vote for in the future.
No one likes to be told that they have been fooled into hating other people for no good reason, but that is exactly what has happened to people who have been listening to talk radio and watching cable news. I am sure we can figure out a way to reach the real person inside these friends and family who are infected with anger and distrust of science, knowledge, libraries, and intelligent conversation.
