    Pfft, amateurs. If they want to know how to fear monger properly, just take notes from certain USMB users who on a daily basis act as if a non-issue is in reality the next step to *insert evil mastermind plot here*.

    Just another "Crisis." Everything's a "Crisis" with these kooks. Yea the World's gonna end if Americans don't vote for Democrats. Funny stuff.

    Sigh. Are you seriously calling Democrats the party of "Fear Mongering"? Where the fuck have you been? Did you miss the whole healthcare debate.. and all the Tea Party rallies.. and the "census it coming for you" shit.. and the "Progressives are coming for you" shit.. and the list goes on and on.. Did you miss all that? How about just tuning into well-known, conservative host Glenn Beck's program sometime. Talk about fear mongering!

    What "crisis" are you talking about....


    And both parties use fear mongering - but recently the Right has been using it a whole lot more. (It's the out of power thing).

    I don't plan on voting for any USMB members, nor do I think any are running for office...

    Fear Mongering rules the World. Everyone's into it. Fear is a way of controlling people. It's not just an American tactic. It goes on all over the World. First you scare them then you control them. Watch the News and listen to the Politicians. It's all about the fear & hysteria. This week's flavor of the week fear mongering hysteria is all about that bad ole "Bullying." Looks like the Government will have to get involved with that one and pass some Laws that take more of your rights away.

    The week before,it was all about those Facebook postings that cause so many to kill themselves. Looks like the Government will have to get involved with that one too and start monitoring your Facebook account. A couple of weeks before that,it was all about that "Evil Sexting." Looks like the Government will have to get involved and pass some Laws so they can monitor all your texts. It's all about control in the end. Unfortunately far too many people buy into the Media & Government fear mongering. The more Laws they pass,the less Freedoms you will have. People just need to stop buying into fear and giving all their Freedoms away. Otherwise a Police State is all we have to look forward to.

    So rare to hear such rhetoric these days.

    Whoosh, the point goes over your head. Though if you're seriously going to complain about fear mongering from only supposedly the democrats but ignore what the Republicans have done since Obama has taken office then you are clearly either trolling or being partisan.
