Let's get OBNOXIOUS on Health Care Reform!
Hey, that's what they have been doing to us these past couple of months!

Look, it would be great if we could maintain this cerebral, measured, logical argument for health care r---

Waitaminute! THAT'S our problem!

We're not ARGUING!!!


The casual approach, jadies & lentlemen, ain't gonna work! We have to match scream for scream, rant for rant, paranoia for paranoia!

Someone yells, "Obama is a socialist?" Fine! Shout back, "And you're a sex offender!"

"Obama's infringing on our liberty?" "I saw you pissing down the Statue of Liberty!"

"Obama wants to put bureaucrats between me and my doctor?" "If you believe that, you need a fucking shrink!"

"Obama is the Antichrist?" "Right, so get the fuck out of his way for the next 42 months!"

The response doesn't have to be true. In fact, the more ridiculous, the better! (See birthers, deathers, tenthers, etc.)

Emotions, like muscles, need to be exercised, lest they atrophy.

Get a hate on! Match the enemy!

1. I prefer the deer in the headlights approach, myself.
Elder relative: He's taking away our freedoms!

Me: What freedoms have you lost?

Elder relative: He's a socialist & fascist!

Me: Please define these words as they are mutually exclusive in reality.

etc...

5. The problem is, that method would validate the string pullers, thereby giving them more power.

Their victims; are living in a Matrix or bubble, they need to be unplugged, educated or enlightened, however by feeding their negative emotions with yours, the result could only be negative.

Take a look at Germany just before Hitler rose to power, there was open warfare in the streets between the ideological extremes, it still may come to that regardless of our efforts but I believe we should starve the beast; not feed it.
