Americans for Prosperity (a Koch-backed group) are planning a forum to help teach their followers how to reach out to local legislators. We plan to stage a funeral march to symbolize the “Death of Democracy” (Sold to Charles and David Koch) to demonstrate that a healthy democracy should not be sold to the highest bidder. If you would like to participate in the funeral march, please wear all-black. We also welcome anyone who simply wants to cheer us on and show Americans for Prosperity that their message of lowering taxes for the ultra rich, eliminating healthcare for the poor and middle class, and privatizing public education is not welcome in Santa Fe.
In 2018, New Mexicans will have an important decision to make. Will dark money control the choices made for our children, our communities, and our natural resources? We would like to think not – we will continue to fight for the assurance of that not being the case. Let’s continue to #Resist. How does that sound?
The latest RPNM email blast is a straight copy-paste of Koch’s opinion piece, illustrating how closely aligned the Republican Party (both national and state) is with the Koch Brothers’ ideals of unimpeded government de-regulation, the promotion of pseudo-science to justify continued dependence on dirty energy, and a maniacal obsession on gutting health care reforms (using lies and half-truths).
As usual, the “data” behind such claims confuses correlation with causation in an attempt to fit the square-peg of their specious arguments into the round hole of reality.
