Koch brothers financial coup d'etat
Watching the unfolding emergency management tragedy in Michigan, I realized what anti-tax extremism was about. It is much worse than your normal conservative I don't want to pay taxes. By destroying the tax base, the Koch brothers can engineer financial collapse, race in and scoop up all the assets for cheap. It is the blitzkrieg of disaster capitalism.
And the Koch brother deliberately targeted the Great Lakes region, inserting toxic governors in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan. The Great Lakes is one of the last remaining hold outs of industrial union culture. By smashing these states, they destroy the remnants of the American Labor movement.
They want a fascist takeover and they may well succeed.
