If your newpaper, TV and radio media do not editorialize constantly about the need to cut government, taxes, programs and laws, then they don't "get it." They do not understand the issue. The issue is the enormous size of the government.
Most media editorialize constantly in favor of new government, taxes, programs and laws. It is fortunate that the internet exists or no proper media would be available.
The big story in every election, and the story that the media ignore, is that the old parties all support new government, taxes, programs and laws; that no old party candidate campaigns constantly to cut government, taxes, programs and laws. The candidates and the media don't "get it." They do not understand the issues. The big story in every election, and the story the media ignore, is the enormous size of the government.
The media lie in pretending that there are only two candidates running (the old party candidates). The media pretend that stale claptrap from the old party candidates (the same claptrap from all preceding campaigns) is the only relevant comment available and that it is important "news."
Another big story in every election, and the story that the media ignore, is that the vast majority of people didn't participate. The persons "elected" weren't elected -not by a majority of registered voters, nor by those who were could have registered and did not. The big story in every election, and the story the media ignore, is whether the government is legitimate. That is why the story is ignored by the media.
Every time a politician dies the news media declare him a "statesman" and rhapsodize about his "accomplishments" which were more laws, more spending and the constant growth of government while in office. All intelligent people roll their eyes and laugh out loud at the "news," and experience a sense of relief at the obituary, tempered only by the thought "I hope his replacement isn't even worse."
While the media rhapsodize the political careers of lifelong socialists, they ignore and ridicule people who stand for liberty, for reversing everything done by the media's career politicians.
Every time a newly appointed Drug Enforcement Chief announces that he will "target drug organizations, dry up their money supply, and dismantle them entirely," the media repeat the "news" with complete seriousness, while all intelligent people roll their eyes and laugh out loud at the "news."
In January 2002, a shooting left three dead at the Appalachian Law School in Virginia. The event made international headlines and the media recited more calls for gun control. A critical fact was missing from almost all the coverage: The attack was stopped by two students who had guns in their cars.
News media report on government schools and funding problems and other issues and never compare private schools.
For example, the news media write articles about school lunches and funding problems or other "lunch" issues, and never once compare private schools. Many private schools do not provide lunch, and parents and children must bring their own lunch. Private schools promote responsibility and thought. Government schools discourage personal responsibility. Even lunch is provided by the government, enticing parents to evade responsibility in the most basic ways. That is why the media won't make obvious comparisons. It helps to hide the truth about socialist schools.
