Excerpt from "Tea Party: Republican or Libertarian" by David Hubbard, The Dakotan, July 13:
The Koch brothers of Kansas. A couple of philanthropic billionaires who have been giving hundreds of millions of dollars to drive a wedge between the Democratic and Republican parties.Editor's comment - Of course we here at Libertarian Republican fully welcome and wholeheartidly support any effort by any individual to turn the Republican Party into the Libertarian Party. And in the interest of full disclosure, that is most assuredly our agenda here at LR.
The formerly anonymous pair of good-old-boy, American capitalists have been traced to a few dozen political and non-profit organizations spending millions to promote the Koch brothers' own agenda... now they are funding the Tea Party in order to purposefully create a void between the left and right; a void that can be filled by Libertarian Party members.
The Koch brothers have spent over $100 million USD in the 2010 midterm elections to promote their own libertarian agenda.
[And] rather than promote their Libertarian agenda transparently through the normal political process, they seek to change the face of American politics through subterfuge, lies, pay-offs, and deceit. The Kochs' goals are not to build a stronger right-wing agenda, but to supplant it with their own Libertarian ideals.
So, remember, a vote for the Tea Party Republicans is a vote for the (not-so-) hidden Koch brothers' Libertarian agenda. Just don't come bitching to the rest of us when you realize the Republican Party has been turned into the Libertarian Party and you are all wondering where your government oversight and your personal rights went.
