The Money

Put a Tiger In Your Think Tank shows ExxonMobile’s donations to the Right’s netword of think tanks and advocacy communications organizations from 2000 to 2003.
Look at the amounts contributed by just one company!
Each of these organizations exists to communicate to the general public in various forms, always about how right-wing ideology and the Republican Party benefit them. That’s all they do.
How many Progressive organizations can you think of that exist to communicate to the general public how Progressive ideas and values benefit them?
THIS is why Republicans win.
(Thanks to this Kos story.)
Update – Commonweal Institute and Breakthrough Institute are two Progressive organizations talking about reaching out to the general public and promoting underlying Progressive values and ideas.
Give them money so they can get this going.
