Frightened by Donald Trump? You don’t know the half of it👉 Many of his staffers are from an opaque corporate misinformation network. We must understand this if we are to have any hope of fighting back against them #KochNetwork amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Over time, tobacco, coal, oil, chemicals and biotech companies have poured billions of dollars into an international misinformation machine composed of thinktanks, bloggers and fake citizens’ groups.
Its purpose is to portray the interests of billionaires as the interests of the common people, to wage war against trade unions and beat down attempts to regulate business and tax the very rich. Now the people who helped run this machine are shaping the government.

1/ #ProtectOurVotes #Handmarked #PaperBallots

NO VOTING MACHINE IS AN ISLAND -

All require, at one point or another, connection to another device, which inevitably leads to connection to a PC or server which may or may not be hooked to the internet but most likely is.
2/

ALL ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES ARE HACKABLE

And there is reason to believe hacking has occurred in the past (Gore, Ossoff, ..) -- though no hard evidence (difficult to get when the server is wiped after a suit is filed) to prove.
3/

THE NEXT BEST THING TO #HANDMARKED #PAPERBALLOTS

is human readable, verifiable, audit tape and legislature allowing it to be used when even reasonable doubt or question exists.

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco For 40+ years the #KochBrothers have been buying politicians at state and fed level. Mostly republicans but there are dems who've taken a bite of the koolaid pie.

This is a great thread except it blows one HUGE point in making Trump personally the antagonist. There is a myth right now in America that getting rid of Trump will get rid of these problems. It won't - because these are not really his own ideas

Recall an interview long ago with Larry King where he spoke of taking care of people. King said, 'universal healthcare?' and Trump agreed.

And I'm not trying to paint Trump the saint - hell no, he is evil incarnate. But I am saying that he really doesn't have much interest in these things. Does anyone seriously conjure images of him up nights working out "health reform"?
