Progressive and liberal activists are planning at the end of the month to confront the secretive billionaire family that finances the so-called Tea party movement and a host of other right-wing causes and institutions.”Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the people.

The Sunday, Jan. 30 event thrown by Common Cause, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, aims to educate attendees in California on the Koch brothers who will be strategizing nearby with their mega-wealthy allies to win the 2012 elections. Afterwards, activists will rally in Rancho Mirage.
It’s a very tough battle taking on billionaires who didn’t even earn their money, had it handed to them by Ma and Pa. because they obviously have no idea the value of money and clearly have undermined our political system over the years by subverting our process and using their propaganda machine to brainwash the masses.

Recently, David and Charles Koch through their network of foundations and nonprofits outspent ExxonMobile on astroturf campaigns to misinform the American public about climate change legislation.
“From 2005 to 2008, ExxonMobil spent $8.9 million while the Koch Industries-controlled foundations contributed $24.9 million in funding to organizations of the ‘climate denial machine,'” Greenpeace International reported.

Here is one of Rachel Maddow’s pieces on the Koch brothers. There are many more.
