The Right Wing War on Language
Corporations are not people and money is not speech. The Estate Tax is a tax on inherited wealth, not a tax on dead people. An embryo is not a person. Calling an acorn an oak tree does not make it an oak tree. We must stop the Right Wing War on Language that is designed to confuse and distract voters.

1. Most of the political talk today
is on Republican terms. Americans don't remember how much higher taxes were on the wealthy before Reagan, senior citizens have forgotten that the Democrats are reponsible for Social Security and Medicare and federal regulations were instituted because of industrial pollution and banks' mistreatment of their customers. If voters had to pass a civics and history test before they could vote therv would be lot of voters ubale to vote.

2. The Right Wing has not gone to war with language, they embrace it as their major tool.
It is through language that they have manipulated society to the point where most of their supporters are in favor of actions which are not in their own self interest.

3. and the only reason they keep winning is the left ignores their main weapon- radio
1000 unchallenged radio stations reaching 50 mil a week with think tank-coordinated messaging.
