I've never seen anything like this. Part of the Obama plan is to use kids under 12 to market Obama. Aren't there laws against using kids under 12 to work in a political campaign?

Here's some of what Obama wants kids 12 and under to do for him:

From BO's website:



In the words of Senator Barack Obama, the "Obama for America Campaign is a different type of campaign". For the first time in campaign history, children ages 12 and under, have a place to go and actually vote—through their voice. What a great way to be introduced to politics and to express your support for Senator Obama.

* Write a letter or editorial to your local news paper, expressing "Why Barack Obama should become the next US President.

* Get friends to wear an official Obama for America T-Shirt to school.

* Post an official Obama for America Campaign sticker/logo on your school bag.

* Wear an Obama for America Campaign button and/or clothing.

What Obama is doing is trying to convince his adult followers to use their kids in the campaign to market Barack Obama. He's trying to get his "adult" followers to turn their kids into mini Obamacons.

Is Obama really so out of touch with reality, or so egomaniacal that he sees nothing wrong with encouraging parents to turn their kids into glorified yard signs for a politician? Or nothing wrong with telling parents to brainwash kids under 12 about why some politician should be President?

This is borderline child abuse. Kids that are 5, 6, 8, 10 years old should be thinking about kid things, not being indoctrinated by a politician and being forced by their parents to propagandize for him. If Bush would have done this he would have been crucified.

But what's the real reason Obama is targeting kids to join the Obama movement? Is it just for marketing? I don't think so. I think it's much deeper than that.

By encouraging parents to engage their kids to become symbols of support for Obama, he's using the same classic mind control techniques used by cult leaders like David Koresh, and Jim Jones, By recruiting young family members, under 12, to be part of the "Obama movement" he is conditioning the core of the family identity to be linked to Obama. Why else would he need to recruit kids 12 and under to campaign for him?

This is exactly the type of mind control and conditioning that's caused many people, including those in the main stream media, to look at the Obama movement as "cult-like." When a politician starts encouraging the entire family unit to be devoted to HIS cause, it's crossing the line from just an ordinary political movement.

Well, this is how democracy is (supposedly) done.

If you want to sell something, you target kids. It's a shame that politicians are using the same tactics. Cradle to the grave marketing.

You might as well ban kids wearing Nike shirts too though, if you were going to stop this sort of thing outright.

Although, I'd like to see how the Republicans can market McCain to the kids.

"Grandpa?"

Well not exactly. It's one thing to market TO kids. It's quite another to encourage parents to USE their kids for marketing a politician. At best, it's shameless. It would also be very difficult to justify it in any way as being in the best interest, or any interest, of the children.

How does making your kids campaign for some politician benefit the kids?

Yeah, this is going to get weird with Obama. I can imagine a bunch of little Obama kids singing that creepy Stevie Wonder chant.

Speaking of the Stevie Wonder chant, check out step 4 in the creation of a cult:

4) Mind-numbing techniques (for example: meditation, chanting, denunciation sessions, or debilitating work routines) are used to suppress members' doubts.

Wow, those poor kids! A soldier is right there to make sure the steps are in sync.

Programming children from a young age is another Marxist and radical Muslim doctorine. It ensures loyalty as Adults.

You know it's really much more than that.

By programming young kids, it ensures loyalty from the ADULTS. The most powerful force in human behavior is commitment and consistency. Look up Robert Cialdini's book "Influence" to learn more.

By having the adults force their 12 and under kids onto the Obama bandwagon, this is anchoring in the "I'm an Obama Supporter" identity into the entire family unit.

In other words, by encouraging the parents to have their kids join the Obama movement, they are creating the core, shared identity of the family as an "Obama family."

This is the exact same way religions gather the masses under the name of their church. It anchors the entire family under one identifying label.

It's a pretty manipulative and outright mind-control type of strategy that's being displayed here. Whoever created Obama's marketing plan must be experienced and very well schooled in generating and installing mass belief systems.
