DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) — Billionaire industrialist and conservative political donor Charles Koch welcomed a group of roughly 450 like-minded fundraisers to one of his twice-annual conferences Saturday by challenging them to advocate for ending “corporate cronyism” – even if those policies help their businesses.
Ha! Well sure, end corporate cronyism, when political cronyism has more return on the dollar.
In other words, why continue to hire like-minded individuals, when you can crush them with those you have legally bought within the Constitutional structure.
Once inside the boundaries of the US Constitution, those bought can include everyone within the structure of the US Constitution. By dropping cronyism you can gain 3 branches of government. There is definitely more bang for your bucks when you buy those within the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the US Constitution.
I don’t think anyone can accuse the Koch brothers of thinking small. The people they need to advance their Conservative agenda are only cronys if you have to hire them instead of buying them, and the Koch brother are willing to put their money where their mouths are, i.e. around the structure of the US Constitution. 🙂
