Why Main Stream Media (MSM) attacks Senator Marco Rubio?
It is outrageous that the Left and Media refuse to debate core points of Senator Rubio’s arguments. Instead they pursue to destroy an articulate, bright guy who can seriously challenge the Left’s power.
Why is the Main Stream Media (MSM) a propaganda machine for the Left?
They went to college and chose not to learn skills that would create wealth and increase prosperity. Instead they majored in liberal arts, communications, or journalism while learning much from Leftist professors about their call for Big Government solutions. They then entered the MSM with an anti capitalist passion and a goal to expand Big Government and emulate European social welfare. Many more intellectual ones learned Marxism in detail and yearned to be part of a drive to establish a modern version of Marxism in the US (not outright ownership of the means of production but major control over all industries and companies). The root cause of Leftist thought in US colleges came from Europe, the birth of Marxism in the 19th century and perhaps the first truly Big Government / social welfare ruler – Otto von Bismark. European professors came over to US colleges, feeling it was their calling to spread Leftist thought.
So the Left feels it is a noble mission to spread Leftism. Those like myself who champion free market capitalism must accept this fact. And then what are we to do? A great answer is to emulate Dr. Benjamin Carson. On Hannity (Feb 15) he stated that it was his mission to educate the populace of how the US can reach new prosperity through choices of tax and regulatory reform to unleash the private sector to create wealth, not distribute it. Carson also pointed out that the Left makes most significant choices based on ideology, not empirical data or facts. Is not that why the Left can only mock Rubio about his lunge for a water bottle?
