    Mark Pryor continually votes FOR the people of Arkansas. He does not take away from the citizens but gives to them. He is an Arkansan with great pride in his state. Tom Cotton has consistently voted against Arkansas citizens garnering much favor from the KOCH BROTHERS.
    Mr. Cotton has not lived in Arkansas in fifteen years. He only returned here to run for Senate.

    The KOCH BROTHERS representative of Americans For Prosperity, Jason Cline, is not well informed. The Affordable Care Act has taken off in Arkansas in a big way and the people love it. We are a very poor state and this medical care was sorely needed.  Koch Brothers are hidind behind the name ‘Americans for Prosperity’ located in Arlington VA, but the only prospering is done by Jason Cline and the Koch Brothers.  Arkansans do not be fooled by wolves in sheeps clothing.

    The direct purpose of the Koch Brothers is to see Tom Cotton elected, raise the age for Social Security to age 70, cut funding for Arkansas Children’s Hospital as well as numerous other state funded aid programs such as the farm bill, food stamps, Medicare changed to a voucher system, and to take precious medical insurance away from our citizens.

    Remember the KOCH BROTHERS have a desire to run dirty oil sand pipelines through our state and leave towns like Mayflower decimated. The neighborhood in Mayflower where the oil sands spilled will never be the same again in our lifetime. Mr. Cline will be here until the election yet we true Arkansans will be here for generations to clean up the messes made by large corporations.

    Mr. Clines LINKEDin file shows he is the STATE DIRECTOR OF AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY ARKANSAS since APRIL 2013.(which states he has 51 to 200 employees, although in this interview he states he has twenty employees).
    President of Prestige Strategies LLC. For one year 2012-2013
    Commercial Fisherman May 2011 – August 2011 (4 months)
    Salesman in SUPER FLOORS (Carpeting and Tile)
    He has a degree in Business Administration / Marketing.   
         (He misspelled Administration on his linked in account page)

    Do not be fooled by these so-called people from other states coming into Arkansas to take away benefits to our citizens. Vote Democrat and save Arkansas from massive corporate take-over!

    The freest government cannot long endure when the tendency of the law is to create a rapid accumulation of property in the hands of a few, and to render the masses poor and dependent.”
    —Daniel Webster // 

    “We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of the few, but we can’t have both.” — Justice Louis Brandeis //

    “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in essence, is Fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any controlling power.”
    — President Franklin Roosevelt //

    “All for ourselves and nothing for other people seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.”
    — Adam Smith “The Wealth Of Nations” 1776 //

    “If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in the government to the utmost.” — Aristotle //

    Vote against any candidate taking money from Americans for Prosperity, i.e, the Koch Bothers, or who is affiliated with ALEC. These candidates will have agendas, if elected, that are not necessarily in the best interests of Arkansans. The Supreme Court has decided corporations have the same legal status as individuals (yet somehow don’t suffer the penalties for beaking the law that people do), and unlimited campaign contributions = free speech. (Do you get unlimited time to speak to your Representative?The Court lacks wisdom. The Court is clearly bereft of basic human wisdom.

    • I am not a Koch Sucker

      The Supreme Court doesn’t need human wisdom:when they allow big money corporations to tell them how to vote.

    Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks are the outcome of a splitting of the Koch organization called Citizens for a Sound Economy (1984-2004), ostensibly founded to lobby and advocate for low taxes, CSE functioned in a PR role for corporate interests, notably creating a fake popular movement to support the interests of big tobacco, and otherwise feigning grassroots activity just as it’s twin children did on behalf of corporations seeking to protect and grow their profits under the Affordable Care Act. (All that hollering and outrage at Town Hall meetings in 2009 was done By Koch activists, those they trained, and the poor folks who they often get to work tirelessly against their own interests and and on behalf of the Kochs through the government as bogeyman canard the right constantly rails on. Come on, if you bought Dick Armey as a populist leader you should read up on the post healthcare legislation activities of Mr. Armey, and look at who the clients were his lobbying business was working for while he simultaneously carried on his Libertarian/ Tea Party song and dance.). The Kochs are often compared with George Soros, a billionaire who funds progressive causes and institutions. Here is the clear difference: the Kochs operate under layers of stealth, there has been no transparency as to what they spend, where they spend it, what the orgs do with the money even. The Koch’s political activities have or thing in common, they all work for what will increase the Koch brothers personal wealth, reduce regulatory oversight of their their heavily polluting main petroleum industry operations, and reduce their contribution to the functions of the country in which they were born into lavish wealth and privilege, and have only grown in power, influence and wealth in. On the other hand Soros has always been completely transparent with what he fund and how much he gives. (This info can be found through Almost all, if not all, of his contributions do nothing to personally enrich his business or his self. Rather it more likely works against his personal gain.
