I thought this film was incredible. As a conservative who votes for Republicans in most elections, I was hesitant going into the movie that it would be focused on a liberal or progressive agenda and would alienate conservatives. I was pleasantly surprised. The interviews with people like Buddy Roemer and average working class conservatives really highlighted that this is truly not a partisan issue. My sincere hope is that everyone in this country from the liberals to the conservatives will watch this and see what is really happening to our elections and our republic.

Hard working, ordinary people are being used as puppets by corporations to pass legislation and influence elections and the only goal those corporations consider is maximizing profits. In my home state of Georgia, talking to people about political activism and even voting is extremely frustrating. The most common response is a feeling of uselessness and a feeling of not mattering in the political system, and I agree with them. When billions are being spent to put a candidate in office, how do you convince someone that their $20 donation makes a difference? I think that if people from all parts of the political spectrum see this film with an open mind, there’s no way that they can walk away without seeing that big money is what is really driving politics today and that elections have become an arms race where “We the People” no longer have a say.

The only way to put our republic back together again is for people to realize that there is a problem and then (like the people of Wisconsin) rise up and tackle it. Your film provides a great opportunity for people to realize what is happening. Once that is accomplished we can then take actions like passing a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United and giving Congress the authority to give elections and our government back to the people.

“Citizen Koch” will open even well-informed eyes to the damage that our democracy has suffered from the billions that Charles and David Koch have spent to ensure that our government is bought and owned by the wealthiest 1%. Banned from public television by the very forces it exposes, the film a must see, told mainly from the points of view of hard-working, middle-class Americans who have witnessed their lives and livelihoods being sold out from under them.

If you want to truly understand how right-wing, corporatist politics really work in this country, watch this doc. Even if you are apolitical and could care less about political ideologues, you should watch this film as a warning. These people and their agendas will terrify you. Big money rules this fallen democracy, and this explains a portion of why it happened.

Watch this movie! We live in Wisconsin and came to understand in a deeper way just how Scott Walker and his bunch pulled off the decimation of collective bargaining and how it is that money buys government. No wonder Walker's motto is "Open for Business." In truth the motto should be "Open for Sale to Business." Coming to a state near you...care of the Koch boys.

The fact that the Koch brothers bullied PBS out of fear of people seeing this film means it's worthwhile. Factual and informative. As long as we're allowing evil oligarchs to own and control our nation, we may as well get to know these guys. As the duo who purchased Walker, Christie, the tea-Congress and so many more, this subject is one of the most relevant of our times. Brace yourself for multi-million$ in political ads from them in 2016.

This film is recommended because of its depiction of the blueprint that the Koch Brothers are using in states where they can get a toady like Scott Walker elected. Wisconsin and Governor Walker may only be the first in a line of many states the Kochs will try to turn red and anti-union. The documentarian's choice to use as his primary spokespeople Republicans who were in unions and displaced by Scott Walker makes the unfairness of his acts even more convincing as they work to recall him.

This jumps around as it covers the Supreme Court giving corporations the chance to contribute to Super Packs for political campaigns. This focuses on the Koch Brothers as they give $ to Tea Party candidates. The focus is Scott Walker of Wisconsin as he rebuffs a recall vote due to his position on Unions.

Occasional insight, politicians appear. I did not feel it had a clear enough direction in making its point. It presents information but does not do a good job of stringing it all together to make its point clearly enough. Some swearing.
