There is a clear choice, the GOP have always worked to make the rich, richer and money more powerful, if you agree with them, let them win, if you don't DO something to change it, throw them from office.

By SIMON MALOY

And as Politico’s Ken Vogel reports, the fruit of this AFP strategy memo is a multimillion-dollar effort by the group to provide “turkey giveaways, GED training and English-language instruction for Hispanic immigrants to community holiday meals and healthy living classes for predominantly African American groups to vocational training and couponing classes for the under-employed.” Along with these handy tips on how to be a more effective poor person, the Koch outfit is also throwing in “a healthy dose of proselytizing about free enterprise and how it can do more than government to lift people out of poverty.” Well hot dang. It’s bargain-hunting and bootstrap-lifting with Charles and David Koch.

Their message being? = Here let us feed you today (if you have anywhere to cook it) - vote for us tomorrow and starve the rest of your life. This message brought to you by the GOP the party of Hate and oppression. We love you (just kidding - we don't - but still want and need your vote)

This guy needs more national exposure to successfully fight the insane GOP and get past corp media non-coverage:

You got that right - and I hope this whole data breach (NOT) BS is the final straw.
