Letter: Koch brothers' billions give them power

Together the Koch brothers' inherited fortunes make them the second largest personal fortune in the world. These two are the real-life Duke brothers from "Trading Places" that are driving our nation into the basement of the outhouse. They own the souls of many of America top politicians and pundits. Their billions control Club for Growth, Heritage Action, the Senate Conservatives Fund, Americans for Prosperity, and the tea party giving them the power over tens of millions of people.

Their ally Rupert Murdoch's misleading propaganda (aka lies) machine pushes their agenda to millions 24/7. Misleading propaganda that Speaker John Boehner warns was driving our nation to dysfunction. Misleading propaganda that the pope says goes against the teachings of Jesus and thus is anti-Christian. Misleading propaganda that hurts our nation and its people thus are un-American.

Time has shown the Kochs' tea party legislations have been devastating to Hoosier towns, counties, cities and public schools. Are the poor and middle-class foot soldiers in the Kochs' tea party ignorant of what they are supporting or are they just hating all forms of government and public schools?

Will the Democratic Party use the mountain of dysfunction, devastation, anti-Christian and un-American legislations created by the Kochs' tea party to stop the Kochs? The woes of the American people are created by an enemy within. Will good Americans step up to help free the insane and the ignorant from the Kochs' grasp thus weakening the Kochs' control over our nation?
