Tea Party and Kock industries and GOP

Bought and paid for by Koch Industries

With the 2012 presidential campaign beginning to take off, GOP presidential hopefuls are changing their stances on global warming and climate change science, in essence denying it’s existence to accommodate the activist right wing. Some have gone as far as apologizing for their past support of any proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Those whom haven’t recanted their stances are being placed under pressure to do so. The latest change in stance has come from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whom stated that he was pulling his state out of a regional agreement to reduce greenhouse gases, saying that it won’t work.

According to Marc Morano, a former aide to one of the most vocal climate deniers, James Inhofe, “Republican presidential hopefuls can believe in man-made global warming as long as they never talk about it, and oppose all the so-ca;;ed solutions.” Morano runs a website where he attacks anyone that buys into the scientific consensus on climate change. The web site is ironically called the Climate Depot.

Conservatives are being bought and paid for by the likes of the Koch brothers and other big energy companies to ignore climate change science and the obvious. Koch Brothers at heart of GOP Power, according to the LA Times. Another article called The Contango Game exposes how the Koch brothers manipulate the oil markets for their personal gain. They also donate millions to non-profits like Americans for Prosperity to influence political races under the guise of a non-profit charity. They are at the very heart of the GOP and the tea parties movements. Here is an excerpt from that article about David Koch running for Vice-President on the Libertarian Party ticker to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1980:

“Many of the ideas propounded in the 1980 campaign presaged the Tea Party movement. Ed Clark told The Nation that libertarians were getting ready to stage “a very big tea party,” because people were “sick to death” of taxes. The Libertarian Party platform called for the abolition of the F.B.I. and the C.I.A., as well as of federal regulatory agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Energy. The Party wanted to end Social Security, minimum-wage laws, gun control, and all personal and corporate income taxes; it proposed the legalization of prostitution, recreational drugs, and suicide. Government should be reduced to only one function: the protection of individual rights. William F. Buckley, Jr., a more traditional conservative, called the movement “Anarcho-Totalitarianism.”

These are some very same things the Tea Party is attempting to do today, as the Koch brothers are funneling hundreds of millions of dollars to right wing causes. They are at the very heart of deregulation, less government, and so forth, and issues which truly need to be in place to protect average Jane and Joe from the likes of them. They are Web Continues to Spread., we cannot allow these extremists to destroy what we have worked so hard to accomplish any longer. Stand up to the GOP and the Koch brothers and let them know that we won’t sell our souls to the devil so they can destroy our nation and our planet!
