So the rich got together and created a market for right wing propaganda at a time

when there wasn't huge demand for it. But they put money and wedge issues into play, and many people were convinced to vote for this GOP and its right wing views based on hate and fear of others, not on what would be best for them if their feelings had been left unmolested over the years. And the right demanded equal time for their propaganda on the news. They went nuts when a black man was elected president and became the tea party. They no longer cared what their economic self interest was and voted that way. They got what they voted for: no employment and a crashing middle class. Then the OWS (99%) came along and woke people up a little. People took pleasure in being connected with a wider group all of a sudden, to fight for against what truly is hurting them: crony capitalism and crony political economy. And they felt relief at not having to feel hate and fear all the time.
How do get this narrative out there.
To "get that narrative" out there you have to lie and hope everyone is dumb or sleeping, which they aren't by a long shot.
Well, no one except the DUmmies, that is.

In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
