Does It Speak For You?

A Quote That Speaks For Many, Including Myself...
by The Old Hippie Because You Still Aren’t Stopping Them, At Least Not Yet.


“I can’t think of any precedent, at least in America, for the blizzard of lies since the Republican convention.  The Bush campaign’s lies in 2000 were artful — you needed some grasp of arithmetic to realize that you were being conned.  This year, however, the McCain campaign keeps making assertions that anyone with an Internet connection can disprove in a minute, and repeating these assertions over and over again...

“[The] Obama campaign is wrong to suggest that a McCain-Palin administration would just be a continuation of Bush-Cheney.  If the way John McCain and Sarah Palin are campaigning is any indication, it would be much, much worse.”

-- Paul Krugman

Also - for a further perspective...
Here is another recent quote of significance...

[Also found at The Crisis Papers]

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.  The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

-- Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister, Nazi Germany.

Needless to say, I find The Crisis Papers web site’s weekly postings of value.
