@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco For 40+ years the #KochBrothers have been buying politicians at state and fed level. Mostly republicans but there are dems who've taken a bite of the koolaid pie.
Looking at #ALEC, whom they fund heavily, gives you an idea where they're currently at: 1/

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco Here is their agenda, first seen publicly I believe when David Koch ran for VP in 1980 on the Libertarian ticket - 2/

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 I've been showing these bullets to people for over a year now and some had a good laugh at the one that does away with the post office. 3/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 People aren't laughing anymore. 4/

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 The republican party as we knew it is long dead except in a few scattered fragments that live in the minds of people who are either too ardent in their believes or too ignorant to notice that Libertarians invaded it during the 1970s and have filled it completely. 5/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 So the GOP is not a group of politicians, per se, as much as they are a party of people intent on destroying the US govt, and have been for years. 6/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 With the 2010 ruling of Citizen's United they burst their trickle in the dam and it's been a gushing flood of dark money flowing to politicians ever since. Watch the whole video - much will become clear to you. 7/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 So we have a 'party' we call the GOP who is now openly defying the will of the American people, instead playing by a book written by the #KochNetwork of donors and a handful of other super rich with goals that align or don't interfere. 8/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 And we have a mainstream media, from major networks to more popular newspapers and magazines, owned by rich or willing to take bribes to favor content, controlling our media.
9/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 How Russia came into the picture, and the evangelicals, is beyond the scope of a simple answer thread but they, and other factors, have been behind our infiltration problem.

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 And it really is a problem. 11/

Jennifer Cohn @jennycohn1 illuminates the above Ossoff/Handel issue more clearly. If you're for #BlueWave2018 you need to follow her. Or frankly you're not for #BlueWave2018 12/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 So, you have controlled media, an entire party, state to fed level, working for rich patrons who want the US to be their feudal system (they want an oligarchy), and Trump thrown in by the Russians/Dominionists tearing our govt to shreds.
13/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 I would challenge anyone to put on their tin foil hate and come up with something more insane or difficult to believe. But the sorry fact is - this is all verifiable (not even that difficult - nobody's hiding anything) and we witness daily the shitshow.
14/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 But just when you thought it was safe to kick the chair out from under yourself - wait - there's more. The #Kochs, via their paid republicans and #ALEC, are attempting to call an article V convention of states to rewrite the constitution #NoConcon

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 Here's a thread I did that's basically just me reciting work done by CommonCause --

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 There's several out there now - good ones -- search the tag #NoConCon (you can just click it - Twitter tags are automagically search links) for more info.

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 So we have hackable voting machines (and they WILL be used as such - and, just my opinion - not just by Russia) to undermine #BlueWave2018 AND our constitution to worry about on top of everything else.
19/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 All of that combined with our liberal 'kind to a fault' philosophy (read the clip attached to the inset below) --
20/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 And that, my friend, along with a media turning the other cheek and normalizing the admin and GOP as everything other than the coup it is, is how all of this is happening right out in the open. I wish I had better things to tell you.

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 There is this --

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 And I hear talk of Marshall Law being the end all. Really? Why would that not be the beginning of an uprising? Didn't they tell South Koreans to stay in their homes the night before they all rose up en mass and ousted their president?
23/
@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 I don't know... I do know that doing nothing and simply narrating our demise is not getting us anywhere. We have to do better. I like the idea of a #GeneralStrike (click that) but can we get the numbers and organization? If so I believe it would work.

@Lawrence @TheLastWord People seem surprised by this; find it an affront.
This GOP does 👏 not 👏 work 👏 for 👏 🇺🇸 👏 and has not since at least 2010 (citizen's united - the .1% was able to increase the pay for play $ from a trickle to a flood) and many have not for decades. And they are sociopaths.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Prior to that they spent decades sneaking in tax loopholes for themselves (they increased the rate at which they got richer and we got poorer - little by little over years) and the the #Kochs have been quietly installing legislators of fortune from state to fed level.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Their playbook is based on feudalism. The elite class is served by the peasants. And #CharlesKoch has been maybe one of the most brilliant men in history to have formulated the architecture for most of this decades long plan.

NO VOTING MACHINE IS AN ISLAND -

All require, at one point or another, connection to another device, which inevitably leads to connection to a PC or server which may or may not be hooked to the internet but most likely is.
2/

ALL ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES ARE HACKABLE

And there is reason to believe hacking has occurred in the past (Gore, Ossoff, ..) -- though no hard evidence (difficult to get when the server is wiped after a suit is filed) to prove.
3/

THE NEXT BEST THING TO #HANDMARKED #PAPERBALLOTS

is human readable, verifiable, audit tape and legislature allowing it to be used when even reasonable doubt or question exists.

There is an ominous feeling pulling at my back-brain, the primal fear center - like encroaching darkness in a realm where artificial light doesn't exist and reliance on tactile senses are my only defense against things that live in the dark and eat fingers.

2016, December - the Washington Post reports that the CIA reports that Russia tried to help Trump win the Presidential election.

And they're pretty specific about it. Which kills me because we went through how many months of listening to that traitor go on and on about "no collusion" as we watched the WH fill in a notably disgusting nepotic fashion. (thread keeps breaking - apologies for reposts)

@barbetta1 @beth_kania @RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 I watched it again just now - really put a lump in my throat. We were possibly dealt a death blow with that ruling and it's just now taking it's toll. It's hard to hear - just how right he was and just how ignorant about politics I was, obviously like so many of us. 1/
@barbetta1 @beth_kania @RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 And now, like being poisoned and getting sick but then recovering only to begin a downward spiral because they're walking around with a dead liver, we find out something of just how badly we may have been wounded. 2/
@barbetta1 @beth_kania @RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco @Ruetheday852 @jennycohn1 @AliAdair22 And honestly we're not entirely certain because we don't really know how big a dose we got. So maybe we can make it through this. But it surely looks grim. And it's a sickening feeling to be given the hope of our last president only to find we may be dead already. 3/

/1/ Is it not incumbant on those of us who know what a threat the #Kochs pose to America, and potentially all democracies, to find some way to let people know?
/2/ Trump is a real danger. There is absolutely no doubting that. But the true head of this snake lies squarely in the lap of the alt-right contract writers - those planning out the shit show and paying our politicians and media to make it happen.
/3/ If this were a disease, Trump would be the acute form while the alt-right would be chronic. We get rid of Trump and the chronic simply flare up another accute case as they hone in on our constitution. #NoConCon

Please include #Midterms2018 - our country is literally bathed in #KochBrothers political lackeys on all trifecta levels.
Through #ALEC, they are pushing for a Convention of States. They mean to radically alter or even rewrite the #COTUS 1/
The link below is a few months old. The "Balanced Budget Amendment" drive currently has 28 states. Just 7 states shy of the 35 required to compell congress to enact an #ArticleV #COS 2/
