Sometimes there are more than two. Yet many people today only listen to one side and believe what they are told. It’s robs them of the ability to see what’s truly going on in the world. If you want to be a blind follower, only believe one side. You can’t take anything at face value if you want to be a truly fair minded, reasonable person.
So with that in mind, I want to recommend an article by one of the Koch Brothers who have been so demonized and vilified by the left in the last year. The left loves a straw man argument. They love to scape goat people and companies. A political tactic that goes back to ancient times when devils and demons were blamed for the world’s ills so that leaders and politicians could avoid the blame.
Charles G. Koch explains their motivations well in this Wall Street journal piece. Not only are they blameless for anything going on, they have every right to stand up for what they believe in. Only fascists want to shut down the free exchange of ideas. Despite what the left wants to believe, the Koch brothers did not “invent” the tea party. Nor are they responsible for everything it does. The tea party is not a unified group. There are many different tea parties in different regions of the US. They are mostly unified in the opinion that government is out of control. That’s hardly a radical or unrealistic opinion.
