#Americanโ€™sTopVillan The man with the strongest influence on the GOP, on the Federal and state levels, is #CharlesKoch. He threw $400M into the 2018 midterms (GOP, of course). Mike Pence is his b**t-boy, and through his complex network came much of the original cabinet
โ€“ Tillerson, Perry, Pompeo, Sessions, Haley, Ross, Price, DeVos and Zinke. The networkโ€™s ALEC undermines state laws across the country โ€“ things like abortion rights, union rights, and environmental protections.
He undermines college education across the country, by funding reactionary professors. His Federalist Society is destroying Federal courts at all levels, including Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. He helps fund the NRA.

This is good but we'd be far from safe.
Remember that it was ppl like the #Kochs (follow with many other billionare names) who spent decades planting an army of politicians across the entire country to bend it slow to their will.

When #DavidKoch ran for VP back in 1980 the libertarian platform (which we now call "#TheKochAgenda") was scoffed at by most as a 'never gonna happen' list.

@Lawrence @TheLastWord People seem surprised by this; find it an affront.
This GOP does ๐Ÿ‘ not ๐Ÿ‘ work ๐Ÿ‘ for ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‘ and has not since at least 2010 (citizen's united - the .1% was able to increase the pay for play $ from a trickle to a flood) and many have not for decades. And they are sociopaths.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Prior to that they spent decades sneaking in tax loopholes for themselves (they increased the rate at which they got richer and we got poorer - little by little over years) and the the #Kochs have been quietly installing legislators of fortune from state to fed level.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Their playbook is based on feudalism. The elite class is served by the peasants. And #CharlesKoch has been maybe one of the most brilliant men in history to have formulated the architecture for most of this decades long plan.
