    George Monbiot – Toxic Brew

    Yeah, the article is going on two years old. Truth doesn't become less true with time, though.

    Yeah, and the same old tin foil hat conspiracy crap about the Kochs remains the same old tin foil hat conspiracy crap about the Kochs.

    Nothing to see here.

    You and this writer can say that is the case, but you've provided NOTHING in support of that assessment.

    Personally, I stand against cronyism with every bit of passion I stand against unconstitutional government meddling. In fact, you generally don't get one without the other. But then, I'm just a Libertarian whose experience with the Tea Party has not been as you've described. The Tea Partiers I've met do NOT "conflate crony capitalism with free enterprise".

    What do you have to back up your claim?

    The article had citations. I assume you did not read it?

    I'm more interested in your thoughts. You appear to agree with this person that the TP "conflates crony capitalism with free enterprise, and free enterprise with personal liberty"

    Tell us in your own words what evidence, logic or reason you have to support this claim. Or are we just supposed to accept it because you say so?

    Yeah, that Tea party was fake in the 2010 elections, in the Walker recall, but you go along your merry way thinking the Tea Party is fake...Presidential elections just around the corner..

    I believe this thread should be labeled "BoogaboogaKochbros".

    How else to explain the many middle-class and lower people who are wholeheartedly supporting lower taxes for the wealthy?
