Twenty-Six Reasons Why the Koch Brothers are the Personification of Absolute Evil

by: K.L Nelson

Every few days we hear the Koch Brothers mentioned on the news in connection to some politician or campaign financing issue. Like many of the mega rich they believe that their extremely deep pockets entitle them to access, perks and power not available to the average citizen.

While one can never really know the mind of another person, in the case of the Koch Brothers we can make a pretty good guess. In 1980, David Koch ran for vice-president on the Libertarian ticket. Below is a partial list of the party platform he (and presumably his brother) supported.

Some of these measures seem pretty evil to me. Abolishing the Post Office? Really?

26. “We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.”

25. “We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”

24. “We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.”

23. “We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”

22. “We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”

21. “We propose the abolition of the governmental Postal Service. The present system, in addition to being inefficient, encourages governmental surveillance of private correspondence. Pending abolition, we call for an end to the monopoly system and for allowing free competition in all aspects of postal service.”

20. “We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.”

19. “We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”

18. “As an interim measure, all criminal and civil sanctions against tax evasion should be terminated immediately.”

17. “We support repeal of all laws which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.”

16. “We advocate the complete separation of education and State. Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.”

15. “We condemn compulsory education laws … and we call for the immediate repeal of such laws.”

14. “We support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private schools, whether profit or non-profit.”

13. “We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”

12. “We support abolition of the Department of Energy.”
11. “We call for the dissolution of all government agencies concerned with transportation, including the Department of Transportation.”

10. “We demand the return of America’s railroad system to private ownership. We call for the privatization of the public roads and national highway system.”

9. “We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called “self-protection” equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”

8. “We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration.”

7. “We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”

6. “We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”

5. “We call for the privatization of the inland waterways, and of the distribution system that brings water to industry, agriculture and households.”

4. “We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”

3. “We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

2. “We support the repeal of all state usury laws.”

And the number one reason why the Koch Brothers are truly evil:

1. “We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs. All these government programs are privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient. The proper source of help for such persons is the voluntary efforts of private groups and individuals.”
