I can't copy anything from the page so you just have to go there to sign the petition.

1. The Koch Brothers have too much time on their hands
The Kochs need to be given something constructive to do, like paying taxes.

2. I may not be personally affected by the Kochroaches' Jim Crow 2.0 scheme
but I have many friends who are. I may have a driver's license, but I used to know many people who can't get a license or state issued ID because of advanced age, disability, and/or inability to drive. It's unfair to deny people the vote just because they cannot afford the time and/or the money to retrieve documents to get a government issued voter identification. Voter ID laws serve only one purpose: to keep Democrats from voting, especially the old, the young, minorities, and disabled persons.
I'm tempted to use the voter ID laws against Republicans. How would they feel if Democrats launched a campaign demanding multiple forms of ID from Republican voters, especially bank account and/or credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other sensitive information? I don't think they'd like it in the least, but it sure would be fun to turn the tables against the Kochroach Bros. and rethugs. :evilgrin:

There is a simpler solution to prevent ballot stuffing and other forms of election fraud on the voter level. It's called paper ballots and a vote using a fingerprint to secure it. No two people have the same fingerprint pattern, not even identical twins.

By the way, I signed the petition.

4. Turn The Kochroaches Into Poster Children...
The chances of overturning Citizen United or reducing the big money pouring into the endless campaign machine are slim to nil...thus the best way to counteract both the money and the influence of the Kochs is by turning them into a verb. Make the Kochs into the poster boys of all that's corrupt in the system and make it a political liability for any politician to be seen near them or their money. It means a concerted effort to constantly attack and demonize any person known to take a penny from these autocrats and turn the tables. Make it that their money can't buy elections or politicians...if anything, make it a liability. For decades the right has demonized organizations such as the ACLU or people like George Soros and have had a lot of success in making them a political liability....if the Democrats and Americans want to stop this usurping of what's left of our democratic system, the Kochs need to have a very bright line constantly shining on them.
