Why examine Dark Money?
I am writing this blog to help spread the the message of the books Dark Money by Jane Mayer and Kochland by Christopher Leonard how US politics has been subverted by a small group of ultra rich. These conservative extremist families and associated individuals have taken over the Republican Party and are holding it captive to do their bidding. It is, in fact, a form of stealth fascism, worse than McCarthyism at its peak in the 1950s. It is ideologically blind to reasoned political debate, immune from attack due to its stealth and hidden operations, far more financially secure than any fringe extremist group the past, and frightening in its depth of methodical planning and precise execution to subvert our government to do its will.
