euhm...the 'code' is not that secret.

It's quite, how can I say this, in your face?

It's not much of a secret code or a code at all.

Is he still talking about building that wall for the xenophobes? Or has the rhetoric changed now that his voter targets have changed (now that he has the republican voters).

Wow well done.

Reminds me of how they did Ron Paul.

“He speaks in code; he’s a transmitter. He’ll say certain things that at first might not appear to be overtly racist, but to certain audiences, they know what he’s talking about. […] People in the know, and people who are in the neo-confederate communities, know exactly what he’s talking about.”

For those just learning to crack the Ron Paul Code, let me offer some sample translations:

1) Take for instance Ron Paul’s statement before Congress in July: “I have been one of the strongest opponents of military action against Iraq. I voted against the initial authorization in 2002, and I have voted against every supplemental appropriations bill to fund the war.” This passage can be roughly translated as, “Hitler was cool, all black people are evil, and I hate gays.”

2) Similarly, when Ron Paul says, “I want to eliminate the income tax,” he’s really trying to transmit, “There’s an international Jewish conspiracy; and the Holocaust never happened.”

I hope this clears everything up. To think, for around a year now, many people have supported Ron Paul because they actually believed he was running a campaign based on non-intervention and fiscal responsibility.

When such things can be made into a controlled economy and marketed stereotypes... that appeal to such bias then of course that becomes the status quo.

When huge swaths of industry trying to privatize such things where there is no oversight humans themselves become slaves and a commodity to the very system itself, where the economics won out in favor of the peoples voices... while others cash in on it, lobby to keep such systems because a strong intelligent populace with a DIY ethic doesn't really want or need all of those old systems or the systems they were moving into in further and further separation of people for less and less economic competition.

The people themselves are becoming the economic competition saying you know I don't need that, I don't want that, and I don't have to have that to be happy... so the mass commercialism becomes a failure that supports all the main moguls that desire to lobby to keep the markets status quo as per usual and that of course requires all that demographics.

Commercials tailored to ones cravings, desires, wants and needs based on stereotypes or trends of a specific age or income group like the fish aren't liking this bait today I suppose they have grown tired of it, so the think tank says what can we use to bait them even further...

Personal choice, people like what they like... brand loyalty exists but it depends on way more factors than a name or an image... or that fancy sales pitch that used to be able to "Sell ice to Eskimos".

No one's really falling for it anymore, the have and have not divisions, the us against them...

Those economically affected want to blame everyone, well personal choice adapt evolve if the market can't grow, and the needs meet the will of the people because people are stuck in drinking scotch at big wood desk and cupping interns on the buttocks as a job well done while chewing on a stogie...

You're not a big shot or a business tycoon is it a Trump people are looking towards as a president or a Trope?

So if anyone is listening to anything

This is an example of the main platform of people on the far left. They have nothing to stand on so they rush to ad hominem attacks. Whether the word is racist, bigot, misogynist, or homophobic, it is all the same.

I have been called a right wing propagandist today. If you criticize the left AT ALL, these words will come up.
Let's see how right wing Republican I really am:

Well, some libertarians see the very very dim 3rd party possibility with things rigged stated by state as voting goes...

So which of the two promises more of the freedom and liberty we are supposed to be guaranteed?

One Republican launched the war on drugs, another launched a war on terrorism... looking at what both of those things have done to society and the cost of lives and livelihoods?

That's why I lean left these days... there's a bit more tolerance than all that extreme authority on both sides.
