Sincerity – if you can fake that, you got it made (discover the Koch brothers in new research)

The Koch brothers main political arm, Americans for Prosperity, has conducted research to figure out how they, and others on the right, could spend so much money in the 2012 election cycle and still not be able to buy it outright.
 
In a memo to donors, they point to a number of new strategies, including this:

“If the presidential election told us anything, it’s that Americans place a great importance on taking care of those in need and avoiding harm to the weak,” reads the AFP memo.

 

Echoing Charles Koch’s opposition to the minimum wage, it asserts that free market, low-regulation policies “create the greatest levels of prosperity and opportunity for all Americans, especially for society’s poorest and most vulnerable.” Yet, the memo says, “we consistently see that Americans in general are concerned that free-market policy — and its advocates — benefit the rich and powerful more than the most vulnerable of society. …We must correct this misconception.”

My word, how could so many Americans be labouring under such a misconception?
