    we have corporate, Republican-friendly media down here and RW hate radio spews propaganda over the entire state (most areas have a choice of 2 stations in their area for RW hate, but few progressive voices get heard).  

    We do have some small independant papers like Shepherd Express, but they have low readership.

    I DO have hope for southwestern Wisconsin because a very popular Madison radio show host now has an afternoon drive time talk radio program on a popular and high powered oldies FM station so folks will be getting better information.  

    The other hope is that more people will start to see the effects of Walker/GOP legislation personally because for the Rebublican-inclined voter, it's the only time they pay any attention.  This is actually starting with the legislation to expand school vouchers.  Every single stinking Republican supported that legislation because they like to funnel tax dollars to private hands.  Additionally, those schools were limited to major urban areas which Republicans hate anyway.  The new bill proposed this year will expand voucherization to rural school districts and many Republican legislators are now running opposition to the bill because they don't want to kill off their local schools.  

    It's kind of fun watching them fight with the other Republicans over this.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
