How much for your democracy?

Koch Network Alone To Spend More To Defeat Obama In 2012 Than McCain Raised In All Of 2008.

Also: Adelson to give Kochs another $10 million to defeat Obama and Democrats.

    Hi Pitch, how are you doing? Why do you call it "Obama-Hood's world"? We are governed by banks, not presidents.

  3. […] debate on a national scale. Still, he’s an extreme candidate—a Tea Partier, friend to the Koch Bros, and no friend to you or me. Unless you’re really, really, really rich and don’t care […]
