19. Gallup is a LIE-BASED TOOL...

...used by BOTH parties to warp reality.

We watched this repeatedly with Bush and now with Romney. Gallup has also been
used to paint a rosier picture of consumer confidence, "Oh look--78 percent of the
American public think the economy is getting better! Are you down about the economy?
Well, most of America isn't. What in the hell is wrong with YOU, loser!?" See how that
works.

They use polls to distort reality for their own gain. We all know these neocon, corporatist
pigs chose profit over our health, safety and welfare. They're destroying the economy and
they orchestrated the housing implosion. Are we actually going to suggest that they couldn't
*possibly* gain control over a polling firm and use fake polls to disseminate bunk statistics?
Oh please.

Both Dems and Republicans use Gallup. It's their little playground of distortion. One more
tool in their corrupt toolbox.

And I would agree--if Gallup is up to these tricks again--it's a sign that they're marketing us
specific messages that are all part of their corrupt plan. I'm sure stealing this election is
part of it.

Another thing--in the recent movie "Going Rogue" about the McCain/Palin campaign--there was
a scene where political operatives discussed how McCain was trailing 10 points with women. All
of the politicos at the table agreed that no way in hell was McCain winning this election trailing
10 points with women. It would be statistically impossible. That's one of the central reasons that
the McCain camp selected a woman as a running mate.

In effect, Romneny--at this point--can't win if he's trailing 10 or more with women.

These thugs can spin it all they like. Their lies are getting more outrageous and their spin is
ridiculous. I wish I couldn't see it. I wish I was just in denial and watching Idol and Glee like
the rest of the lemmings. It's frustrating.
