    You seem to have missed the point. It's not about preaching to the choir. It's about spreading the Progressive message in deep red wingnut territory in language they can understand and, delivered by spokespeople that they can relate to.

    For starters, just imagine a cowboy preacher talking about how the Bible frowns on usury, leading into a rant against Wall St banksters who borrow from the Fed at 0% and then charge 30% on credit card interest. Or a fisherman talking about how pollution makes salmon scarce.

    We need to counter 30+ years of wingnut propaganda, and we can't do that by pitching our message to folks who already believe it. Nor can we even begin to do so buy paying good money to rent time on wingnut-owned stations.

    The first step to taking back the agenda is by literally taking back the media, and the way to do it (imho, anyway) is to start small and (hopefully) cheaply in rural markets.

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.

      Look, even some of the dumbest of the dumbshit listeners have figured it out that Rush, Hannity, etc have sold them a bill of goods. They look at their paychecks and know the truth.

      Here's one of my talking points, AJE, which actually practices journalism, and is establishing a foothold here, will be a go-to source for information in the US withing 15 years, whether it be via internet or cable. Because someone has to report the truth.
