Consumer Power

This editorial touched my soul this morning as I read it.  The freedom this country gives us all is being blocked, challenged, criticized and in many cases the manipulated by writers and pundits who disagree with the age old wisdom of tradition. Certainly this is their right, but the publishers of mainstream media must be aware of the changing tide and that from a commercial perspective their liberal progressive perspective is slowly losing ground. More and more people want to see balanced objective reporting rather than radical extremism.  So if you disagree with what you hear in the mainstream media, do not support their sponsors. Boycott their products, vote with your spending.   The most powerful freedom in this country is the spending choice of consumers.  Remember that the next time you buy something.  Have a good day.
