Bernie– Don’t just watch and listen and hope for the best … start writing letters to the key pols, and to newspapers. When they vote right, publicly congratulate them. When they lie etc., publicly call them to task. Democracy cannot exist without accountability. And only a free press can provide that accountability. Don’t rely on the professional newscasters to do it, as they are often part of the problem.
So far as beating the lying bahstahds, it’s not difficult these days, with google, to get the voting records of your pols on any topic. Go back through their years in office and see how they’ve voted on issues related to hunting, wildlife habitat protections, etc., and trust in that. In the end it’s up to us to save hunting in meaningful forms. Ain’t nobody else going to do it for us.
