Wondering just who all these players actually are and why they are appearing together on a MeanMesa post?  Well, read it and weep.

Citizens United were the plaintiffs in the now infamous Roberts court ruling that corporations were people, had a "Constitutional right" to contribute  "assistance" campaign material to support their neo-con candidates and didn't have to reveal who was paying.  If that set-up sounds snakey, you're right on the money.

David Koch is a fun-loving billionaire who thinks he should be able to swing any election anywhere in the country to "vote in" his favorites.  Although New Mexico hasn't "pricked his fancy" yet, MeanMesa has no interest whatsoever in having this freak set up our state government.  For the time being, "rich boy" has decided that Florida will his game room for this week.

Alan Grayson is the Florida Representative that Koch is aiming to defeat in the November election.  Grayson was the outspoken House member who said that "the Republican 'Health Care Plan' was simply 'Don't Get Sick,' and, if you do, die quickly."

Grayson's email to MeanMesa follows:

Dear MeanMesa,

I was elected to Congress because 171,000 people chose me to represent them. But suppose that only one person got to choose all the Members of the House and the Senate. And the President, too.

That man would be a king.

So meet David Koch, the man who would be king. King of America. The one who is spending $250,000 on attack ads this week, to defeat me. The one who wants to choose all of our so-called "elected representatives."
Shouldn't "We, the People" be choosing our leaders? If so, please contribute to our campaign, and help beat back Koch's attacks.
As we told you yesterday, Koch inherited his $17 billion fortune from his father. Who helped to industrialize and arm America's then-enemy, the Soviet Union.

And we told you that New Yorker magazine has documented Koch's relentless and unscrupulous attack on the Obama Administration, which has grown so many tentacles that insiders refer to it as the "Kochtopus."

What we didn't tell you is that Koch's company, Koch Industries, is one of the Top 10 Air Polluters in the United States. Koch has caused over 300 oil spills. Koch has paid $35 million in pollution fines.
So now you know where Dirty Dan Webster's support comes from. Dirty money. Literally.

And now you know why Koch is so anti-government. For him, no government would mean no fines for dumping his toxic waste wherever he feels like it.

Donate $25, $50 or more to our campaign, and help stop "Big Dirty" from taking over America.

If David Koch chooses all our leaders in November, how long will it be before we have any chance to take back our government from him? Years? Decades? Ever?

We'll tell you more about King David of Koch tomorrow, but in the meantime, if you can help us fight back, please do.

Alan Grayson

The links for contributing to Grayson's campaign are left in this post for a reason.  Have you got $5 to tease the plutocrat with an "out-of-state" contribution?

Let's let these losers know that there is also "clean money" out there, ready to protect our democracy!  It may come in much smaller amounts, but dream sweet knowing that every penny freaks the hell out of people like Koch!

In this dawn's early light, our flag is still there.
