A Movement Would Not Be Advertized

The revolution may or may not be televised, but a movement can't be built on television ads.

If you are a human being who cares about other human beings, about an informed society, about democracy, freedom, justice, progress, peace, prosperity, and the American way, then giving money to commercial television is giving money to the enemy.

Some numbers from http://ruralvotes.com/thefield/?p=653 - "With no other candidate appearances in the district, paid media is how most voters are “meeting” them," quoting http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=718981

As of Friday, Obama had bought more than 850 ads - costing his campaign about $400,000 - on the four network stations in Milwaukee through election day. His ad buy includes a two-minute spot that will run during the 10 p.m. news Monday night.

It's all good though, Giordano (who identifies as an anarcho-syndicalist except for every four years when he is pulled into the vortex of U.S. presidential politics, which he then makes spin faster and to new places) assures us: "Obama’s massive TV buy is just putting back into the Wisconsin economy what voters there donated to his campaign:"

He has raised $583,523 from Wisconsin residents through Dec. 31, compared with $180,583 for Clinton.

Putting back into the economy, that's a nice way to say it.

Actually, it's well over half a million dollars transfered from people who care deeply about their country and their communities and more than likely our world to the media corporations and their station affiliates that are allowing great damage to the country, their communities, and our world.
