The Kochs and the Libertarian Takeover of the GOP

“The Libertarian Takeover of the GOP Is Almost Complete,” by Scott Galindez, Reader Supported News, excerpt:

…In the past we would expect Bush to outspend Walker and for Walker to fade, but not anymore. Scott Walker will benefit from the Koch network of cash. The Koch dark money regime will likely go negative against any threats to their agenda’s becoming the agenda of the GOP. A Walker or Paul win would put the Koch machine at the helm of the party. The party nominee controls the convention, the platform, and the electing of party officials. If the nominee is Scott Walker or Rand Paul, the Koch Brothers will be the puppet masters. If it’s Jeb Bush, then Karl Rove, James Baker, and the old guard will maintain their control.

A Scott Walker presidency with a Republican Congress would be a disaster for the poor and for working people. The Koch Brothers don’t only want to take on unions, they want to abolish Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Pell Grants. There is no social program that would be safe if one of the Koch’s puppets wins the White House. According to Wikileaks, the Clark-Koch ticket in 1980 promised to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve Board, Welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies including the SEC, EPA, ICC, FTC, OSHA, FBI, CIA, and DOE.

The Kochs couldn’t achieve those goals with the Libertarian Party as the vehicle, they needed the Republican Party. Their takeover is nearly complete, they are writing the script. Scott Walker is their lead actor, and Rand Paul is his understudy and the backup in case Scott Walker stumbles. Don’t be surprised if the ticket next year is Walker/Paul. That would put the Libertarians in charge….
