"HEAD EM UP - MOVE EM OUT"!
FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS! OF FAILED GOVERNMENT POLICIES; BOTH, DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS. IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT, IT'S ALL THE FAULT OF THE FAILED "ABRAHAM LINCOLN ADMINISTRATION" THAT HAS CAUSED ALL OF TODAY'S ECONOMIC PROBLEMS! (The politicians have to blame someone and it ain't going to be themselves!)
IF YOU TELL A LIE BIG ENOUGH AND KEEP REPEATING IT, PEOPLE WILL EVENTUALLY COME TO BELIEVE IT! (Joseph Goebbels - NAZI PROPAGANDA MINISTER)
Both prevailing Parties, along with their Media accomplices, have been reading Joseph Goebbels chapter contained in the book, "How to Propagandize the People"!
Today's PROPAGANDA, is the coordinated attempt to influence public opinion through the use of a controlled media. Progressive Socialism (both, Democrat and Republican) uses propaganda skillfully by providing a crucial instrument for acquiring and maintaining power and using propaganda in continuing their failed (on purpose?) policies, including pursuing their main goal of complete control over the people!
The following two paragraphs are from Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf"!
"Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the "least intellectual" of those to whom it is directed. The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook "that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning". This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood"!
"Propaganda must "not" investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favorable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical (concept) rules of justice; "yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favorable to its own side". The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. "These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward". Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula."
ANY SIMILARITY BETWEEN THE NAZI GOVERNMENT AND TODAY'S POLITICIANS IS PURELY COINCIDENTAL?
COLLECTIVISM VERSUS INDIVIDUALISM!
"It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness". (Karl Marx) Today's Quote must be returned to one of: "It is the conscience of men (Individualism) that determines their existence and not social existence (Collectivism) that determines their conscience"!
Politics is nothing more than a Chess Game between the Liberal Elite and the Conservative Elite. Both sides use Pawns (the People) and "Propagandize" the direction where they want the Pawns to go. Most games end in a draw (Grid Lock)!
