One has to read the 1980 Libertarian Party platform to understand what today's Republican Party is all about. What David Koch could not do in 1980, he
has patiently waited and spent his money to influence and finally take over the GOP. When the Koch machine finally saw that Donald Trump had no
ideology, they gave him one, through Robert Mercer, a Koch ideologue.
It is about getting rid of all functions of the fed govt save military and a limited very limited few. The Koch call to lower taxes was not so Joe
Taxpayer could "get to keep what is his" or Corporation Joe could have more money to trickle down into the economy. It was all about defunding govt to
"make govt small enough to drown it in a bathtub".
Trump's choices for cabinet positions are there to make sure the departments fail. Choosing people with no experience is a great way to ensure
failure. Rick Perry, his latest pick (Energy Sec), would be in charge of the very cabinet he could not name as one of the ones he wanted to get rid
I have to laugh at people who say that Trump will not touch their Social Security and Medicare. HA! Read the 1980 platform. Gone.
And without federal civil rights, states rights discrimination will return.
This Koch coup is the coup de grace for the federal govt.
