A handful of powerful rightwing billionaires are trying to buy Congress. Who will stop them?
The Corporate Media won’t. The most powerful man in Corporate Media – FOX chairman Rupert Murdoch (right) – is also the most powerful rightwing billionaire. First he turned FOX into 24x7x365 rightwing Republican propaganda. Then he hired the top Republicans like Karl Rove and Sarah Palin as “analysts.” Then he used his hosts to raise millions for Republicans, both on-air and at their fundraisers. Then he gave millions directly to Republicans, both from his corporation and from his own pocket.
What about the rest of the Corporate Media? Last week ABC hired Andrew Breitbart – the video liar most infamous for the vicious Shirley Sherrod and ACORN smears – for Election Night coverage. Not one single “journalist” at ABC objected.
The only exceptions are NBC’s evening hosts – especially Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann, and Rachel Maddow – who are doing their best to sound the alarm. But their heroic efforts are undermined every morning by Joe Scarborough, the Republican ex-Congressman who single-handedly championed the anti-Kerry Swift Boat liars in 2004.
So if the Media won’t stop the billionaires, who will?
Look in the mirror. It’s up to us – only us – and every single one of us. And here’s what we must do.
1. Vote a Straight Democratic Ticket
If you don’t want rightwing billionaires to own our government, vote Democratic.
If you want billionaires and corporations to pay taxes, vote Democratic.
If you want a decent job with decent wages – not corporate slavery – vote Democratic.
If you want Social Security, Medicare, public education, and environmental protection to survive, vote Democratic.
If you don’t want rightwing thugs to stomp on your head at a political rally, vote Democratic.
If you don’t want a woman’s body to become the property of the Republican Paty, vote Democratic.
If you want campaign finance reform that gets billionaires and corporations out of politics altogether, vote Democratic.
If you want Truth, Justice, and the American Way, don’t wait for Superman – vote Democratic.
