9. No kidding. I think we ceed a new MEME: Why can't they leave us ALONE?!?
Edited on Sun Mar-27-05 12:14 PM by calimary
I think we should start surgically attaching it to the whole sordid Terry Schiavo business of government meddling and intrusion into people's personal lives and decisions. And why the hell not? The bad guys certainly will be trying to, trying to bend the issue into something that suits their agenda (be watching: the "Activist Judges" crap).

But the issue turns OUR way, NOT THEIRS. You can see from the polls. Run the numbers. The numbers tell it. Americans DO NOT LIKE intrusive government. Americans DO NOT LIKE BUTT-IN-SKIS. They're fighting over a woman's body in Florida. They're fighting for young women's bodies here in CA. And that's not anywhere near the end of it. They certainly wouldn't hesitate to try to manipulate all this. Why shouldn't we? Especially when public opinion is HUGELY on our side. Again - LOOK. AT. THE. POLLS. Everyone's trying to spin them into something they're not, but they still are there, glaring you in the face. Americans DO NOT LIKE INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT. And we need to frame this, and almost every other issue, as such. These fanatics are the ones who really and truly "hate us for our freedoms." And we should turn that one straight back into a big, fat, smack in the face against them. ("No. YOU'RE the ones who hate us for our freedoms!" YOU'RE the ones advocating violence and kidnapping and hostage-taking and intimidation. It's 'RIGHT WING' WACKOS who are killing and threatening the judges at the moment! YOU are the terrorist threat to America's safety and security. YOU are a bigger threat than Osama EVER WAS!")

Then, we win.

Repeat, repeat, repeat.
