David Koch Supports Gay Marriage, Pot Legalization, And Ending Wars — And You Shouldn’t Be SurprisedSubmitted by MMJ Ministry on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 03:16
Thursday afternoon, POLITICO reported that billionaire industrialist David Koch, the oft-vilified bankroller of groups aimed at electing Mitt Romney and many Republican congressman, supports many libertarian positions that are antithetical to the Republican Party.
While this may come as a surprise to many, it’s actually quite well-known that the Kochs are socially liberal and fiscally conservative — a.k.a., “libertarian”. Koch was the 1980 vice presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party who campaigned on things like drug legalization and a non-interventionist foreign policy.
“I believe in gay marriage,” Koch told POLITICO. When reminded that Romney and the GOP oppose gay marriage, Koch said, “Well, I disagree with that.”
