Say No to Corporate Welfare, Charles Koch

Charles Koch is one of most politically prominent billionaire based in the United States. Born in November 1st 1935 at Wichita, Kansas. He is known to compares his political movement for economic liberty and prosperity and small government to the civil right campaign held by his fellow non-conservative politicians.

Charles Koch has never backed a GOP presidential nominee but for the first time in a February Conference for the Koch Network held at Indian wells, Calif, Charles and his network consider spending huge amount of donation to try and defeat Donald Trump. This is according to an official from Freedom Power Action Fund. Funding will come from his influence in Koch Industries where he commands 40% ownership with the company being worth more than $60 billion. It is actually the second largest private-owned company in United States according to Bloomberg Billionaire Index.

In his article, Charles depicts that the fundamental concept of respect, dignity and equality were earlier exposed to threat by the nation’s own government. Charles disagree with the Obama administration insisting the utter truth and the factual knowledge is that people are incapable of running their own lives. That is what he calls the notion of collectivism and “big government”. Charles highlights the example of the current health debacle associating with the disastrous government control. He even complain of being a victim of “character assassination” not once but severally. This is what kills liberty and prosperity.

Koch also argues against government regulations insisting he expects employees to cooperate entirely with laws regardless of their personal understanding. He expects them to comply fully with 100% of the time with complex and dynamic government mandates. This does not imply agreeing with each and every law but rather complying with laws that we might perceive ourselves as counter-productive. It is only then that employees will enter into dialogue with regulatory agencies to come up with alternatives that are more constructive.

Being an American businessman, political donor and a philanthropist, Charles believes that his experience in market-based management has provided him with an understanding of how the world works. He insist that he supports a political leader who will advance his ideas, take the country away from this tiered system and lament the activities of the Federal Reserve out of control government spending, in what he likes to call “unjustifiable corporate welfare”. This is the path to liberty and economic freedom.

Koch Brothers Come Clean About Their Political Agenda

The Koch brothers especially Charles Koch and David Koch have not been in the media and political limelight for a long time; since back in the 1980s when David vied for a political position but lost. Their open agenda has now been analyzed to coming up with myths about their political side of life. The Koch especially Charles Koch were noticed not long ago because of funding political campaigns for the Republican supporters with huge sums of money. This was an aspect that has been facing lots of criticism from the Democrats especially Bernie Sanders, who does not like the fact that politics is being materialized financially. Charles Koch has since 2010 been attending television interviews and writing his op-eds in the Washington post. His recent opinion was in support of a Democrat, who is against the inequality in America.

Myths about the Koch brothers have been made; these myths are technically not all right because of the anonymity of the Koch brothers for a long time. For example, the myth that the Koch brothers are a recent network formed in reaction to the Obama’s presidency. The Koch brothers have for a long time been trying to come up with reformations of the American politics since 1973. They have been giving to minority political parties but expanded to funding lobby groups who push for policies they see as right and preferable. In 2003 during the era of Bush, the Koch were in support of Medicare care policies after they saw the activities of Bush and decided to get involved in politics.

The Koch brothers support policies regarding environmental sustainability hence the myth that they push for policies favoring their business with oil since they are a major distributor of oil products. Unfortunately, the truth behind their agenda is to reduce taxes, loosen government imposed rules and regulations that may hinder the activities of the unions of workers. Koch has over time seen the burden behind the common person and middle incomes to the imposed policies by politicians and top business persons.

Charles Koch is the chairperson, chief executive officer, and a board member of the Koch Industries one of the largest corporations in America. He has overtime advocated and funded groups supporting environmental policies that are favoring environmental sustainability. The system he says should favor rehabilitation of the incarcerated back to the society by not limiting their opportunities.
