    Build Bridges Instead Of Prisons

    Any politician who suggests raising historic low tax rates on billionaires, reducing the military, to pay for infrastructure projects will get hammered by rightwing rehtoric

    You can hear it now, "commie", "socialists" etc.

    • What's really strange are the ditto heads who are the poorest among us in many cases, yet buy into this crap they're hearing from the multimillionaire talking heads, many of them speaking from their mansions in gated communities, it's just insane..

      • That's the way it is in the USA, commie. Hard-working people know that everyone has the opportunity for material wealth, if they chase it. The majority of those behind the gates started with nothing. They didn't there through victimhood and expectations of government hand-outs at the expense of others.

        That is the forte of the rightwing air waves. They know how to get low income white males to vote against their own interests.

        Rush Limpballs, FAUX News etc. know how to push the buttons of mainly angry middle aged white men.

        The russians are coming, no al Qaeda are coming, black UN helicopters buried in the desert, the athiests are coming, the homosexuals are coming, raising taxes on billionaires is good for poor old white men, give up your social benefits because it's communism, godless society is coming, helthcare death panels.

        The Koch Brothers and other billionaires are sitting back and grinning.
