I think the conservative "think tanks" are a danger to our democracy.

I have posted about this issue before because I think itís really important. I donít know a lot about the think tanks, but they have been around for a long time and there are a lot of them. They seem to be created by and run by entities with a lot of money to spend. And they seem to be taking a long-term approach to slowly destroying our democracy. They seem to have a plan in place to concentrate the media to more easily control the content, to distort the Republican message to make it more palatable to the masses (note how Republicans are always ďon messageĒ and all have the same talking points), to alter the landscape of the system of justice (with candidates pre-vetted by conservative groups and ready to be appointed when thereís an opening), to sponsor and pass legislation to benefit the wealthy at the expense of the poor and working class, etc.

I think conservatives have been working to rig the system in their favor for a long time (at least since Reagan), and the Democrats are way behind. I donít know how we can catch up to them to stop their agenda. Any thoughts on this?
