17. Our challenge is to use emotional appeal to convey the truth

We have to resist the temptation to rattle off facts and debunk rethug lies using reason alone. Brainwashed people don't respond to reason; that's how come we have to appeal to their fears of losing democracy, freedom of movement, and subjugation by corporate rule to bypass their conscious minds.

For instance, we can come up with the idea that rethugs want to install hidden cameras in every bedroom so they can spy on married couples during their most intimate moments. Not that they would do that, just a hypothesis.
