    A long video, but current almost to the day. From November I believe. It breaks down how political speech and the media go together to create propaganda.

    Frank Luntz is involved, and he describes how politicians manipulate people.

    Quite an eye-opener, and something I think everyone should see.

    Anyone watch this? Find it interesting?

    It's really intriguing, actually. People really ought to hear what these experts have to say about political speech and the way it dictates the perception of voters.

    It's pretty non-partisan, besides the mostly Liberal crowd in attendence, but that doesn't really play a part anyway. Frank Luntz breaks it down pretty good. He breaks down Hillary and Obama, and how the way they say things affects voter's perception of them.

    Voters shouldn't miss this.

    Good question, we figure it out and we won't have to read any more ignorant racist rants from you any more.

    Well RGS, I wouldn't know, since these tactics according to the experts are subconscious, and the only examples they give are of Obama, Hillary, and Edwards, that I saw.

    I'll accept the title of racist the day you accept the necessity of evidence in proving your limited post-stroke comprehension of what I say.
