103. there will be no sig election reform until the 'left' challenges RW talk radio
Edited on Wed Sep-28-11 10:37 AM by certainot
imagine how fast we'd be back to paper if democracy loving americans had 1000 talk radio stations. we've heard shit like this before and thank you brad and others, but we're no closer to fixing it and won't until we get the house back and get 60+ senators (not including blue dogs whose state politics are dominated by RW radio and who are afraid of limbaugh).

-- on the contrary, a recent poll shows the main concern for republicans re voting is voter fraud and that for dems is voter suppression, and voter fraud is basically a creation of the GOP that could not be popularized without that right wing radio monopoly (you can't do that to so many people with fox, email, and blogs). meanwhile, voter suppression is sold on national and local RW radio weekly for years in the guise of protecting our borders, lies about dems stealing elections, terrorists with fake IDs, etc., and using that dominating local soapbox to sell the ALEC-style initiatives.

those coordinated RW radio stations have done the groundwork for selling e-voting and protecting it under the guise of making voting MORE secure (protecting it from dem fraud- hanging chad counters etc.) and saving money.

the whole thing can be turned around in an election if the left would get off it's ass and stop ignoring RW radio because they'd rather listen to music and blog, while it's kicking their internet ass. picket the stations, get university sports off them, and boycott and shame local sponsors until the stations can't pay overhead and limbaugh is elevated to head of the GOP.
