It all boils down to

how elections are financed. Until that changes the corporations and their wealthy individual partners will continue to write laws that dictate the national direction, and makes them even more money and power. Take a look at the amount of millionaires and billionaires in Congress!. They operate in a very different world and have little or no concept of the one inhabited by the average working person. And still we keep electing them, wondering why our interests are not represented. That old saying about the definition of insanity ....Corruption has been sanitized to make it palatable by calling it lobbying.

Possibly the most practical response

to the pond scum politics and racism of the Fox political party is simply to delete them from your channel lineup and let your cable provider know you have done so. They are primarily in search of the money that fuels their lies. If enough of us do likewise their ratings will inevitably suffer.

Post appreciated

Thanks for the revealing post that explains why the right wing media and other bought and paid for Koch politicians were so quick to try to make a hero of that racist deadbeat from Nevada. In a strange way it took Bundy to so vividly expose the insidious aims of The Fox political party of millionaire hypocrites and Republican extreme representatives.

Ignorance + racism

I do not have the stomach to listen to Limbaugh. I do read reports of his abuse of the airwaves and this one reinforces the fact that this sorry excuse for a human being, in addition to spouting his racist beliefs, is happy in spreading ignorance. He is probably the single most divisive person in America. How any advertiser can be associated with him is beyond me.

Priorities

In my business I often meet folks who work hard at what they do, have a mortgage, family and food on the table yet are one pay check away from disaster who consistently vote the Republican ticket. When I point out they are voting against their own best self interest and that of their kids they invariably thoughtlessly respond with talking points taken directly from Fox and right wing radio. In a few shocking cases it is their pastor who reinforces those talking points. I fear that the innate selfishness of their message will not change until something disastrous occurs in a personal way.
I regret the unfortunate circumstances and welcome the change of priorities.
