    The brothers lost me when they became never-Trumpers.

    Well all I can say is your damned if you do and damned if you don't.
    Koch gave a lot to charity, I mean a lot! I think he was more in the middle then leftist or right. But when your that rich you can pretty much do as you please.
    Did I like him, well didn't know him, but I did like the fact that the leftist Democrat cult hated him, so I liked him.

    the problem with libertarians is that they seem to forget we are a welfare state.

    They also seem to fail to realize that...

    Eventually they will become voters...or worse...your overlords!

    Donald Trump isn't libertarian, he doesn't even pretend to be.

    Never said he was. Google the brothers’ comments about our President. They were never-Trumpers from the beginning.

    It's pretty sad that a man's death needs to be put in GTPI.

    Prayers for his family and friends.

    What is it sad to post it in PI? Lots of people are mostly known for politics, and this is the place to discuss. It’s not a surprise.

    Haven't seen such hate, smh. People go to the hater store and are shocked by all the haters, its like going to a European beach and being aghast at all the speedos with squirrel tails hanging out. While I'm sure its rationalized in different ways to protect whatever it is they have attached their thoughts, hate is equal on both sides and you're hopelessly naive at this stage of the game if you can't understand that. Hate is hate is hate, everytime someone dies that's publicly from one side of the political spectrum or the other its not even news, they run straight to message boards decrying a statement they read somewhere they searched out. Just save it at this point, man was a grandfather, a father, a husband and a son so there are actual people that have real feelings about the matter and could probably care less about the political part at the moment. Matter of time for #(enter name) body count is trending and that is just as pathetic. Let them bury him before the new round of conspiracies start

    Libertarians aren't supporting the anti-Libertarian POTUS. Whodathunkit?

    What disgusts me are the libertarians-in-name-only who went full Cheeto.

    More like Globalists who didn’t support the America-first President.

    Kochs wanted their brand of libertarianism/conservatism..................which doesn't resonate with anybody outside the "club".
    They are tone deaf to the anger that is out there, to the GOP system.........the anger that got us DJT

    You obviously know little about the monster.

    Ain’t cryin’. The Undead are incapable of dying. He merely exists in the shadowlands.

    I always attributed Paul Ryan's refusal to support the presidents immigration agenda to Koch money. They are Soros Lite.

    It's never a bad thing when a globalist billionaire goes in the ground.

    They may want open borders, but they don't support non citizens getting handouts, medical care, and tax free wages.

    You are looking at libertarians from the Republican party perspective and are not seeing the whole picture.

    They support amnesty, so you can hand out those things to US citizens.

    Since I would never be a republican I cannot look from that viewpoint. I do support America picking the best/brightest from the immigrant pool.
