    Dear Citizens of the United States of America,

    It has come to our attention that the brothers, David and Charles Koch--the billionaire owners of Koch Industries--have long attempted to usurp American Democracy. Their actions to undermine the legitimate political process in Wisconsin are the final straw. Starting today we fight back.

    Koch Industries, and oligarchs like them, have most recently started to manipulate the political agenda in Wisconsin. Governor Walker's union-busting budget plan contains a clause that went nearly un-noticed. This clause would allow the sale of publicly owned utility plants in Wisconsin to private parties (specifically, Koch Industries) at any price, no matter how low, without a public bidding process. The Koch's have helped to fuel the unrest in Wisconsin and the drive behind the bill to eliminate the collective bargaining power of unions in a bid to gain a monopoly over the state's power supplies.

    The Koch brothers have made a science of fabricating 'grassroots' organizations and advertising campaigns to support them in an attempt to sway voters based on their falsehoods. Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth and Citizens United are just a few of these organizations. In a world where corporate money has become the lifeblood of political influence, the labor unions are one of the few ways citizens have to fight against corporate greed. Anonymous cannot ignore the plight of the citizen-workers of Wisconsin, or the opportunity to fight for the people in America's broken political system. For these reasons, we feel that the Koch brothers threaten the United States democratic system and, by extension, all freedom-loving individuals everywhere. As such, we have no choice but to spread the word of the Koch brothers' political manipulation, their single-minded intent and the insidious truth of their actions in Wisconsin, for all to witness.

    Anonymous hears the voice of the downtrodden American people, whose rights and liberties are being systematically removed one by one, even when their own government refuses to listen or worse - is complicit in these attacks. We are actively seeking vulnerabilities, but in the mean time we are calling for all supporters of true Democracy, and Freedom of The People, to boycott all Koch Industries' paper products. We welcome unions across the globe to join us in this boycott to show that you will not allow big business to dictate your freedom.
  2. "....corporate money has become the lifeblood of political influence"

    Huh? Union money is the lifeblood of political influence.

    "....not allow big business to dictate your freedom. "

    I believe teachers unions are the largest union in the US.

    Dats big business.

    This is nothing more than a bunch of activists attacking the opposite political party.
  4. Koch industries is the type of industrial powerhouse that is responsible for much of our prosperity and standard of living. The Koch brothers are old school captains of industry.

    The premier leftist moneyman, on the other hand, is a speculator who by his work has not contributed one drop of genuine productivity to the rest of humanity.

    I say this not to denigrate speculators. however, I do think the difference is telling.
  5. All the politicians are bought and paid for, just by different groups of people. They're all corrupt, all of them, Dems and Pubs. If you think they're not, I've got a bridge to sell you.

    dats right holmes.....
    just try to get someone w/fierce political beliefs to admit to it.
    they usually just yes you to death until you go away.

    you can't move on until you realize this FACT.
    it's like getting stuck in the lobby cuz when the elevator door opens "lobby" is your only choice.
  7. More Corporate taxation and regulation only cause more corporate lobbing,

    Reduce corporate taxation and regulation and watch corporate money leave Washington DC
  8. The United States has become a two tiered judicial and political system:

    Private wealth interests are protected by the constitution to monopolize public debate while worker bargaining rights and other forms of free expression that run contrary to their interests are outlawed.

    Unions are kept by illegal means from organizing work forces and the DOJ has made it explicit that there will be no enforcement of the law.

    Federal guarantees and credit provisions are now being used to finance the privatization of public assets. In other words, the interest groups that run the Federal government are now using the government to privatize itself.
  9. I'm for eliminating the corporate tax, maybe that would slow down the corporate money in politics, I don't know. There is no getting away from regulation though. My business is small and the state regulations are much more of a pain in the ass than the federal rules, especially in the ultra conservative state of Arizona where I regretfully took on some work. For a state that says they are conservative man they have a lot rules, forms, license and taxes and on and on.
