31. Margins consist of people who know one whole hell of a lot less about it than you do. Put yourself

in their shoes and tune in to two guys talking, two guys whom you may never have ever actually listened to directly before (you always listen to someone else giving you at best 2nd hand, but often 3rd hand or worst, interpretations of what these guys are saying). So you're listening and watching for practically the first sustained exposure you've had and one guy is saying things and the other guy says nothing but, TTE, "That's a lie" or "That's not true". You barely really know either one of them or the issues at all, so you don't know lies when you hear them, which means that you don't know that EVERY word out of Rongny's mouth is a lie AND (because Rongny says nothing but lies that you don't know are lies) Obama says practically nothing but, TTE, "That's false". Which fellow would you regard as more informative, the one who appears to be giving you information (even though you don't know that information is a lie), or the guy who appears incapable of saying anything but an attack in one form or another on everything that the other guy is telling you?
