Organized Wealth is Out to Screw US « SpeakEasy

Public attention on right-wing funding in political campaigns has been galvanized by the attack on working people in Wisconsin by an ultraconservative governor out to crush labor unions.

There is, however, a much larger elaborate strategic right-wing process at work here.

These slogans are part of a carefully-crafted propaganda campaign by organized wealth.
