Imagine how great this country would be, if every lawmaker had just half of the courage, integrity, and intelligence of Senator Bernie Sanders. I've grown to vey much love this Independent lawmaker from Vermont. He has no problem taking on and exposing the most corrupt individuals and organizations positioned in America today. In this video from June 2011, Sanders takes on the infamous and all too powerful Koch Brothers.
Here is the video:

Here is a link to the full one hour version of:  Robert Greenwald's Koch Brothers Exposed.

Koch Petitions:

Daily Kos Petition: It's been recently reported the Koch Bros are no longer interested in buying the LA Times. If that is true, it would partly be due to this petition. Since Koch Brothers have not publicly confirmed their disinterest, (and who would believe them?) I think signing and sharing this petition is still a good thing. Here is the link: Stop the Koch brothers from purchasing the Los Angeles Times and other media outlets

A New Petition has been started by Kossack Camarosc35: Air Citizen Koch to further expose Koch corruption. For more info as to what motivated the new petition: MichaelMoore.com

Thank you, Senator Sanders. You give people hope, by showing us there are lawmakers who truly do care about the citizens, don't play party BS, and aren't afraid to stand up to the most dangerous and powerful in this country. You do us proud.

Special thanks to Shockwave w/Daily Kos for sharing the video. This diary has been republished and updated with the product list and petitions, to keep the control and greed of the Koch Brothers - fresh in the minds of the public.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
