The Power of Words part II

Just wandered over to mybarackobama.com, where they posted a week ago that people opposed to nationalized health care were "terrorists". It has been taken down... hmm, wonder why? I guess the webmasters that the liberals employee are rich from putting up things and hastily taking them down again... You know, the website that has Obama's face, words and name all over it, but not directly endorsed by him... I don't know, but when sport stars agree to put their picture on a cereal box, isn't that "endorsement"?

Anyways, just another example of liberal word play: If you go to the site and click on issues, it takes you to this page. On the right hand side, there's a graphic that says "Stand with the President on Health Care" and below is a button you can click to "Declare your support" and will take you to a petition-type page with a video message from guess who? (even though this isn't his website...wow, someone's doing a great job impersonating him then)

Go back to the "Stand with the President on Health Care" graphic. Just what does that NOT say? First of all, if you are like me and against the liberal's version of health care reform, then it's safe to say that we do not agree with the President on how to reform health care. And that's fine - that's what America is all about - the freedom to disagree. But read those words again - "Stand with the President on Health care". Implying that if you don't agree with him, then you are against him (thought this wasn't about you, Mr. President). No longer are you disagreeing about an issue - you are against him personally (if this was his website...). But there's more!: you are not only against the President, but you are against health care too, you selfish person! It says "Stand with the President on Health Care", not "health care reform".

And the sad thing is - this is going to work on some people!! They are playing on people's emotions. "Well, I don't really agree with his plan... but I don't want to be seen as being against the President...



Phew... anyone else getting dizzy? I feel like I'm on a carousel run amok. Someone tell Pelosi to stop playing that darn organ music...

I love being a terrorist...and helping bring down dickheads like Van Jones. It feels so 1776, when our Founders were also considered terrorists.

I guess I am an anti-socialist truth 't' word. Dr Dave is correct too in that the founders were considered criminals or worse during their time. Great post!
