17. Have you read "Big Lies" by Joe Conason?
That is what this is the Big Lie-see expecially chapter 8 on W's "spritual advisor" and the ties to the Domninion theorists.

Also look up Lewis Powell's 1971 letter to the US Chamber of Commerce and read it. You will see where the entire RW machine started (and expounded on Powell's direction) all funded by the Four Sisters.

Though HL MEncken would say that everyone does it.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
