Mel Kilberg: Propaganda rules

I want to commend your Oct. 12 editorial “ Protest vote.” You hit the heart of the matter.

The top 0.01 percent, the ones making at least $75 million a year with the help of incompetent members of the Supreme Court, are destroying our democracy. The destruction of the education system and the bombardment of propaganda in our media may be irreversible.

The Oct. 12 letter “ Send Hagan home” was a perfect example of what I am talking about. The letter-writer said that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid “has chosen to block House-passed jobs and other bills from getting to the Senate floor.” He did not mention what these laws were, giving no specific examples . He called Hagan Reid’s enabler, again with no examples. Then he said “that she was skittish about ACA.”

Well, a lot of people were when it first came out, but he doesn’t mention that the ACA is a huge success with Hagan’s vote (not Sen. Richard Burr), with 10 million enrolled.

This type of response by the American people makes me believe that we have gone past the point of no return.
