an open letter to Barack Obama
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be pissed off. Call McCain and Palin liars. Out them for who they really are. They are LYING. Their ads are lying. We live in a country where people have been trained to believe advertising. Don't take it for granted that the American people are smart. They're not. Collectively we're not. We've had 8 years of a nightmare president that WE VOTED FOR. Don't expect insight or intelligence or growth. People don't think. FIGHT BACK. Get aggressive. Challenge them. It's not the issues. It's the soundbites. The war hero and the right-to-life hockey mom. People aren't looking any deeper than that. You can't make them with logic, with sanity, with reason. You have to fight back on their level or you will loose. And that terrifies me.
