I MARVELED AS A CHILD AT HOW LIES AND PROPAGANDA WORKED IN 'OTHER' COUNTRIES
NOW I SEE HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE THINGS THAT AREN'T TRUE


I wonder if children are even taught how governments and state-run media outlets have shaped opinion and "attempted to" brainwash their people into believing things that aren't true?

Or is the history of tyranny and novels like 1984 not taught or discussed anymore?

People like me have been pounding facts for years - facts you can easily verify yourself.

Sometimes the things that are so obviously true to anyone who bothers to think can be rejected or ignored by masses of people.

Even so-called 'thinking" people.

We've shown people in black-and-white the truth about the GM bailout to no avail. They STILL regurgitate the talking point about "just letting Detroit go bankrupt" - EVEN when you show them the op-ed piece they base it on that proves they are wrong.

Month-after-month we explain how the unemployment statistics are manipulated, how fewer people are working at lower-pay jobs for less pay and benefits and they STILL insist the economy is improving.

The propagandist never changes ... uses language manipulation and counts on an uninformed or misinformed public not noticing what they are doing.

Again we have the spectacle of a last-minute thuggish attempt by the left to get their way by convincing people they are getting soomething they're not.

FOR THE RECORD:

1) If you pay taxes, they will not go down if President Obama has his way.

THERE ARE NO TAX CUTS no martter how many times Obama, Pelosi and Reid tell you there are ... and notice how they keep repeating those words? The mark of the propagandist!

You are paying taxes based on the Bush tax rates passed 10 years ago. The so-called "tax cuts for the rich" which acttually benefit the "middle class" by a 4-1 ratio in total savings.

2) When Obama and the Democrats talk about spending "cuts" there ARE NO ACTUAL CUTS.

What they mean is that, instead of increasing spending by 7-8-9 or 10% they will "only" increase it by 6.5, 7.5, 85 or 9.5 % sometime down the road.

UNFORTUNATELY, we know that tens of millions of people, maybe more, don't and the media and the politicians won't tell them the imple truths I am telling you now.

And THIS is why leftists, liberals, progresssives, socialists and statists of all stripes won't actually engage in a real discussion of issues ... why they have to smear the messengers and repeat the same old mind-numbing propaganda talking points.

Ironic because they are always talking about "noise" from the right - a kind of liberal catch-all (like using the phrases Faux News and "right-wing extremists") ) that allows them to ignore anything that destroys their arguments ... and fill the heads of impressionable young skulls with mush.

Why? it works ... as the November 6 election results showed.

An uninformed and misinformed public combined with tens of millions of people who feel they are entitled to the fruits of other people's labors.

No wonder so many people stick their heads in the sand whenever convenient.

Teach your childen and grandchildren the truth.

There is little or no hope for us now, but maybe ... decades down the road ...
