  •  Monetizing Politics (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I was thinking that the principal purpose of the right wing echo chamber has been financial deregulation and lower/no taxes on the wealthy.  The rich wanted to become an aristocracy.  Somewhere there should be a "mission accomplished" banner for that.  There is always a maintenance problem, but what we are seeing looks more like a campaign than a holding action.  Where are they going next?  It seems to me that the right is most exercised about the coming threat to that aristocracy from the "browning" of America.  If so, then the plan seems most likely to be the monetizing of politics.  Getting people to throw away their votes seems to be a good first step towards systematic changes that make voting largely irrelevant.
