  •  state funded unis will help tank these amendments (2+ / 0-)

    amendments will be much harder because in most states they will become a regular target of local RW radio blowhards using talking points and timing and guests coordinated by the national GOP think tanks and almost all of that will be completely ignored/unknown by the activists trying to pass the amendments.

    many of the loudest of those radio stations depend on our universities for sports broadcasting for community standing and ad dollars. it needs to end.

    the RW radio monopoly has been used successfully to defeat and pass initiatives all over the country for 25 years and it has been successful because progressives/liberals/dems ignore it.

    the GOP think  tanks will taylor their RW radio programming to whatever state you're in. you could have hundreds of dedicated activists working on it and all they need a a few blowhards reading the talking points all over the state to tens of thousands for as long as it takes to distort the intent and scare the voters.

    the left needs to organize an effort to fix this problem and hasn't even tried yet.

    in every state our universities are being USED by the republicans to sell their crap (see link in sig) and those unis are making a joke of their mission statements. they need to be forced by the student groups and communities those stations undermine to declare their intent not to renew those contracts and look for alternatives. when a few do that other will be shamed into following and the RW radio advantage will dissolve.

    and use transcription software  and a few computers in every state to find out what's getting blasted from those stations and respond in real time instead of after the GOP reality has been sold. when people can read RW radio it will lose the element of surprise.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
