17. I think that the Republicans are using psy-ops to play on people's fears and anger.

I believe that decades worth of psychological research has gone into writing the scripts that people like Rush read on hate radio. It's designed to brainwash people who are vulnerable. I'm not sure why it works with some people and not others, but I have a bad feeling that if I didn't read DU and other political sites and I got all my information from Fox News and hate radio, I might succumb too. I think that the Republicans figured out how to prey on people's fears, resentments, and other weaknesses, exploiting their emotions and making them angry.

I've seen this happen to a couple of family members.
