“close to 100% of the media is controlled by the leftists”

Absolutely correct. When you control the message, you control a significant portion of the vote. It doesn’t even have to be a big percentage. If 3% of voters switch their vote, a 51 - 48% ‘drubbing’ becomes a 51 - 48% win. If we won by that margin we’d be talking about how liberalism was rejected. Instead, we are talking about how the nation is dead. It’s not, at least not yet, and we can put this back together.

The democrat secret is putting ‘pieces’ together. A certain percentage of women, a certain percentage of the youth vote, a certain percentage of the casual voters who get their news from MSM outlets and who don’t research the issues, a certain percentage of the elderly that have been scared about the loss of Medicare etc.. Add those to the loyal minority vote, the union vote, and the public employee vote, and you have a winning coalition. This is what they depend on, which is why they fight so hard to discredit anyone who might pull significantly from any of their key demographics (e.g. any women candidate, and any minority candidate).

The bottom line is that they are very vulnerable, but the strategy has to be correct, and it has to be aggressive. We need to find ways to split their coalition, and make them play defense.

The problem is that there is no conservative TV media in this country at all. There never will be either.

Even if someone spent a billion dollars to start a cable network, none of the cable and satellite companies would withstand the leftist onslaught to keep them off the air.

If Glenn Beck or someone had bought Current-TV, sure the ratings might have shot through the roof, but the cable and satellite companies would probably drop it, advertisers would be afraid to touch it.
