David Koch's 1980 Run for Vice President
In 1980, David Koch ran for Vice President on the Libertarian Party ticket. Every bone-headed Plutocratic rightwing idea you've been hearing over the past few years — David Koch was spewing out this exact same shit 34 years ago.
Here's a link to the Libertarian Party platform of 1980.
Go ahead and peruse the list. It's not pretty, but we need to know this. After you've realized that the Koch Brothers want to eliminate every governmental protection we've had for the last eighty years, you might notice a few things missing from the list.
Along with opposing most governmental protections, Libertarians have also been opposed to the whole Biblehumping “morality” agenda, elective wars, and the siphoning of trillions of tax dollars to the Pentagon and the War on Drugs. Whether you agree with the Libertarian Party or not, there's usually a certain consistency that you've gotta respect.
But none of these items are mentioned in the linked article. David Koch wanted to eliminate every agency and every law that protects people; but he apparently had no problem whatsoever with the Prison Industrial Complex, the Pentagon and its parasitic “defense” contractors, or the Salem Witch Trials 2.0.
