20. Relax, everybody. This is just another attempt.....
to propagandize us.

For at least the last 6 years (since the beginning of the 2000 Presidential Election campaign) we, as a people and as a nation and culture have been told over and over again in several different situations that things are the opposite of what they appear to be.

I can't believe that so many of us DUers still get sucked into the "I can't understand why so any people still support *!"

His supporters are largely fictitious, his base is an illusion - used to keep us wondering why * supporters cannot see the truth instead of working together to fix the problems that we know exist.

* is a history major. He may be stupid about a lot of things, but I'll bet you he's real familiar with the history of Germany in the 20s, 30s and 40s. He knows how Hitler used propaganda to keep Germans and other European nations paralyzed until it was too late for their governments to protect them.
