You see it in nearly every democrat party or affiliates email. You see it at almost every Democrat rally… The Evil Koch Brothers are destroying America with their billions of dollars going to Republican and Libertarian causes.
Problem is, it’s is just the lefts Saul Alinsky ‘Rules for Radicals’ fundraising tactics – Demonize your enemy and the ends justify the means.
Open Secrets, a political finance watch dog group, compiled a list that may surprise most Democrats. Seems the Koch Brothers rank 59th in political giving.
And this is news because?
Koch is like Derek Jeter donating
Act Blue is like the whole Yankees organization and fans donating.

Who We Are
ActBlue is an online toolset that makes it easy for donors to connect with the candidates and causes they support.
At ActBlue, our mission is to democratize power by putting powerful fundraising tools in the hands of grassroots donors across the United States.
How We Do It
Our fundraising tools allow everyone to have a powerful voice in the country's future. By giving through ActBlue, our donors monetize their passion and empower both themselves and the candidate or cause they support.
The ActBlue model encourages and rewards participation in the fundraising process. Grassroots donors and fundraisers can track their impact online and in real time, and our clients build a network of invested supporters they'd be hard-pressed to reach otherwise.
ActBlue's tools have been tested during some of the major fundraising moments of the last nine years, and time and time again they've measured up. Today, their reliability and capacity is second to none and available to all. We're committed to giving our hundreds of thousands of users new and better ways to make their voice heard.
ActBlue only accepts donations from individuals, and we direct the money as they specify. We disclose every donation made through ActBlue to the relevant bodies, working to keep the lines of accountability between donors and recipients open.
And how is that different than the Democrats?
Do corporations only lobby Republicans or do Democrats have super hero ethical restraint?
