    Will the Koch brothers shift their support to Romney after he wins the nomination?

    Do the Koch brothers usually give to candidates, directly or indirectly? I know they've had some activity in the cycle so far, but it seems like most of their spending goes towards lobbying and funding think tanks rather than to candidates. I'm sure some PACs which have gotten money from the Kochs will give to whomever the Republican nominee is, but I have no idea whether the Kochs will directly.

    My question is, will the Koch brothers give as much to the Repubs as the unions and world wide socialist and communist special interests will give to Obama? I have a feeling the difference will be an order of magnitude.

    Of course it will. They're just two people. Soros and his legion will match them many times over.

    We should elect the Koch brothers to the white house. Don't you agree?

    Look at the good side
    -Drilling for our own resources
    -Mining for our own resources
    -more nuclear
    -strong anti-Keynesian economic approach. HELL after the cluster fuck of the last few years through the US and europe...I'd think that's a good idea.

    Sounds pretty fucking good...We can have our cheap light bulbs back. hehehe :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Seriously they should run...

    For president???

    Yes, we should give them permanent government support. In Leavenworth.
