    The Koch bros planted the Tea Party seeds ages ago into positions such as "Texas Railroad Commissioner" all across the country.  They continued to water those seeds until they bore fruit and many of them now sit in positions of power on Capitol Hill.  

    Worse still, is that the Koch bros, et.al. continue their below the radar, stealth work and you best believe that prior to the next presidential election there will be a monumental attempt to reallocate electoral votes.  I can promise you they are at work on it, have been working on it and we cannot afford to let our guard down.  Changing the electoral process would be the worst threat of our lifetimes and would virtually assure a Republican presidential candidate winning every time in the forseeable future!

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

      to heart every election. We are seeing right now how well "top down change" is working with Obama blocked at every turn for almost four years now. That is a direct result of many supporters of "change" not making sure to secure the foundation at the bottom in 2010. Pure top down just does not work.

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
