Thank you Margaret, for voicing what is in many people's minds and hearts. Loring calmly sets an example for each of us to strive for.

Imagine if the Koch brothers controlled congress and all state legislatures. USA would be exactly like Russia,China,Iraq and Nazi Germany. After all the Koch brothers are John Birchers.

The country will be controlled by ALEC legislation written up in secret meetings. Bill Moyers - http://www.democracynow.org/2012/9/27/the_united_states_of_alec_bill

The Koch brothers have spent $8.2 million alone thus far on their conservative choice for North Carolina Senate.

Haters are going to hate. Intellectually complex critical thinking folk know Koch's and ALEC are no good.

The Tea Party News Network? Yeah, there's some serious unbiased reporting, lol. If one simply clicks through the frame to the actual open secrets study linked in the article, it clarifies that only transparent donations are counted in that list, not the dark money network that the Kochs love. "It's also important to note that we aren't including donations to politically active dark money groups, like Americans for Prosperity, a group linked to the Koch brothers, or the liberal group Patriot Majority — because these groups hide their donors"

But yes, Act Blue tops that list. "It is also worth noting that certain organizations, such as ActBlue and Club for Growth, are included although they function for the most part as pass-through entities: individual donors give to them with the contributions earmarked for specific candidates."

Study is here: http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php

I'm not sure anything on that list counts as particularly shocking, but whatever.
