    That is interesting. I had not heard of these "Koch brothers" so I went and found out some stuff about them:

    Why the Evil Koch Bros. Must be Stopped: They Support Drug Legalization, Gay Marriage, Reduced Defense Spending.

    The KOCH brothers must be stopped. They gave $40K to Scott Walker, the MAX allowed by state law. That's small potatoes compared to the $100+ million they give to other organizations. These organizations will terrify you. If the anti-union thing weren't enough, here are bigger and better reasons to stop the evil Kochs. They are trying to:

    decriminalize drugs,

    legalize gay marriage,

    repeal the Patriot Act,

    end the police state,

    cut defense spending.

    As with just about everything in life, no one ever said it was a black and white issue. Hitler loved animals and built up his country after WW1 (with the support of many of the largest businessmen in the US, who were also anti-semetic), that does not mean that we should not have stopped him from cruel and destructive behavior. And no, I'm not comparing the Koch brothers to Hitler.It was just an example of things in life not being black and white.

    I'm pretty sure with the Koch brothers it's always a black and white issue.

    On these issues, clearly it is:

    decriminalize drugs,

    legalize gay marriage,

    repeal the Patriot Act,

    end the police state,

    cut defense spending.
