Understanding Establishment Conservatives i.e. the Koch (Sucker) Brothers

When it comes to rottenness in American politics, unfortunately it is not exclusive to Democrats

The GOP has its own fair share of individuals and groups who want to take the nation in directions which would be economically or socially harmful to most citizens

Nowadays the term for these selfish, terrible people who have contaminated the Republican party for many decades are called 'establishment' but the more familiar name for them is fiscal Conservatives

So what do these terms mean in a real context?
An establishment or fiscal conservative (the words are interchangeable) in their perfect world would have government completely stay out of their business so they could make unlimited amounts of money and pay as little or no taxes on it

They also hate and despise all social safety nets like social security, Medicare, welfare, and any other program established to help the truly poor, needy and disabled especially if they have to have any part of their wealth taxed to pay for it.

They also believe very strongly in the double standard
For instance while they hate programs like mentioned above as what they call government charity and despise that people financially destitute can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy from creditors

Yet they fully embrace Chapter 13 bankruptcy which benefits corporations and when they lose money from bad investments or a market crash, are the first to hold out their hands for reimbursement as they did in 2008

Most people like this the public has no clue about..  Unlike wealthy liberals needing constant ego stroking, these people are content being out of sight
Two of the more vocal establishment Republicans however are the despicable Koch Brothers whom we've hated for many years

They are probably a little familiar to some because throughout the 2016 GOP primaries, they went out of their way to support any and every candidate other than Trump and refuse to support GOP candidates in the mid-terms who do not have their specific profit-first and neocon world view

The Koch brothers came from a very wealthy family that runs and still operates Koch Industries

A quick background from Wikipedia:

"Koch Industries, Inc. is an American multinational corporation based in Wichita, Kansas. 

Its subsidiaries are involved in the manufacturing, refining, and distribution of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching, finance, commodities trading, and investing. 

Koch owns Invista, Georgia-Pacific (Brawny paper towels, Dixie cups, etc..), Molex, Flint Hills Resources, Koch Pipeline, Koch Fertilizer, Koch Minerals, Matador Cattle Company, and Guardian Industries. 

The firm employs 120,000 people in 60 countries, with about half of its business in the United States. The company is the largest landowner in the Athabasca oil sands (located in northern Alberta, Canada)"
Like pretty much all business people especially with corporations that large, the Koch brothers only care about the Koch brothers

They loved Trump's tax cuts and want him to do more and more and more

They hate his current trade wars because it may hurt them, even though we have deficits with other nations in the hundreds of billions which hurt and threaten hundreds of other US companies and tens of thousands of American jobs that are connected to them

The Koch brothers also loved the Bush bastard boys (41 & 43) because they made constant war in the Middle East as part of the goal of a globalist new world order which besides being ideologically in line with the Koch's, made them a lot of money
The reason we focus on them is to make you understand not just what an absolute miracle it was that Trump won in spite of so many enemies coming at him from all sides but to show even with all his successes, there are those on the right who want him torn down as badly as those on the left

Pretty pathetic isn't it..

This blog will always represent the everyday person in the daily struggle to survive and create a better world based on true equality (not identity politics), individuality over the collective and where basic American values are preserved and embraced

And doesn't matter if one is a registered Democrat or Republican or some other political bastardization, if a person or entity is against the core values we expressed above we will attack them
The Koch brothers like the rest of the establishment/fiscal conservatives represent the worst aspects of the Republican party and the sooner they find themselves isolated and on the outside looking in, the better

Trump represents the best aspects of the GOP as we see it; his bank account may show him to be a one-percenter but his policies continue to show he cares about everyday people and wants to leave a positive mark upon all, even his detestable, mentally sick haters

Now if that isn't a compassionate conservative, we don't know what one is
