Oscar: I wants to buy a governor. Howse much monies does it take?
MacIntosh: In Wisconsin it costs the Koch brothers $43,000 in direct contributions and a couple million in support ads.
Oscar: Yikes. I can’ts afford that much monies.
MacIntosh: Are you short?
Oscar: We’es both short MacIntosh. We’s Westies.
MacIntosh: Its chump change for the rich but normal folks can’t afford their very own governor.
Oscar: That’s not fair, huh MacIntosh.
Oscar: Maybe’s we could do a time share.
MacIntosh: Great idea. Normal people could buy an hour or a day. Pretty hard to do though.
Oscar: Yep. Maybes Governor Walker coulds charge more so even the rich peoples can’t afford it.
MacIntosh: You can’t turn a two dollar whore into a Parisian courtesan.
Oscar: Yep. Well………what ifs the peoples make it expensive if a rich guy buys a governor.
MacIntosh: How would we do that?
Oscar: Rich peoples have companies that sell products and they depend on the poor and middle class peoples to buy those products.
Oscar: Ifs the people quit buyin’ theirs product that would costs the rich peoples a lot of money.
MacIntosh: So when they buy a politician they have to add the costs of lost sales into the equation.
Oscar: Zactly. It’s a way for all of us to vote against the peoples that would ruin our democracy.
MacIntosh: Georgia Pacific, owned by the Koch brothers, had 2010 sales of $100 billion dollars. If we reduced that by 5%, it would make the cost of a governor shoot through the roof.
Oscar: Cuz ifs I can’t buy a governor they cants buy one either.
MacIntosh: And it’s a free market solution. They are free to support who they want and we are free to buy what we want.
Oscar: Peoples could help other shoppers buy smart by taking post-it notes to the market that say “Save our Democracy – Don’t buy this product” and slap ‘em on all the Koch’s products.
MacIntosh: What do you call this idea?
Oscar: It’s a Boyzcott.
MacIntosh: I found a website that can help. It’s called http://buyingfreeze.org/
Oscar: To help everyone we’s got a list of Koch brother products below.
MacIntosh: You should send this list to everyone you know.
