    Remember that it took more than 100 years for the Free Market Fantasy to take hold in the popular imagination.

    This will not be won with a sound byte.

    •  It can't. We need 2014. Maybe visuals would do. (1+ / 0-)

      We rely on words, lots of words. How about pictures in a rebuttal aimed at the basic premise of spending? How about ...

      Campaign-style ads with visuals in key districts. A series of short videos of recognizable government buildings, services and programs in the district, a dozen or more of them in a 28-second ad, beneath which is the audio of the Congressperson nattering on about "runaway government spending." (Maybe with a tag line "And she/he voted for [or supported] the sequester," showing the bill number of the Budget Control Act of 2011.)

      2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
