I had to point out to him that 46 percent of all Tea Party members were either Democrats or independents. Unfortunately, this, too, fell on deaf ears.
This example shows why you should attend one of these events and see for yourself what and who are involved. You will come away very favorably impressed and see that the other side is painting demeaning and erroneous pictures of Tea Party members and their cause.
I am not asking you to fall in love with the alternative news sources I am mentioning below but please listen to them at least two or three times each to get a good idea of the substance they provide.
Talk show hosts should include Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, the dreaded Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. They all have very good websites to peruse, also. Sean Hannity is on his "Conservative Victory Tour" and has so far been to Minneapolis, Detroit and New Orleans. In each case they were sellouts, and the crowds of typical, average Americans were fired up. He will be in many more cities in the near future.
Listen to Fox News starting at 5 p.m. at least a few times. You'll hear factual information that you won't hear in the mainstream media. You will soon see why Fox News is rated No. 1 in cable news and has more listeners than CNBC, MSNBC and CNN combined!
Try reading the New York Post editorial and columnist section, The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal Editorial section and NewsMax.com. Of course, you should already be reading "On The Right Side."
Columnists to read are Charles Krauthammer, Thomas Sowell, Michael Barone, Larry Elder. Michelle Malkin and Dick Morris, just to mention a few, taken from a list of more than 100.
