The Koch brothers gave $1,000,000 to the Republic Governors PAC – and that PAC became Walker’s largest contributor.
The goal is eliminating unions so the Koch brothers have no check on their power and ambition. They have no need or interest in a healthy middle class. Serfs will do just fine.
The Koch’s gave themselves 11 billion in bonuses. Then they laid off workers; guess where? Wisconsin.
My favorite Koch Brothers Wisconsin shenanigans cartoons are at that link.
For how Kochtopus money is wrapped around Gov. Walker you can read all about it!
To sum it all up Koch brothers fund and bring you Gov. Walker of Wisconsin
If you are silent, who will the union busters and plutocrats bust into serfdom next? If we do not stand up for, and protect, one another through the democratic process, we become complicit.
I found a poem that I thought applied, but some felt that the references were not appropriate. Instead, I offer a poem of my own with I hope less historical baggage, but which calls out the same warning, if we put money ahead of humanity, we then place ourselves, our children, and our heritage of democracy at risk:
Beware the Kochtopus
What sly enemy
To you this choice
That you have chosen
To revere their corporations and wealth above people?
Now your children’s future’s lie unprotected,
Wrapped in the greedy coils of the Kochtopus
Strangling the future as it grows.
The hope of their future
Withers, sucked of life and hope
By the endless hunger
of the Kochtopus.
Did no one have the courage to warn you?
Did no one have the valor
To hunt and fight this monstrous beast?
