Confidence artists look for people who have low self-esteem and exploit that.
“Another sign is someone who is amused by cruelty. If they laugh at others’ suffering — not a nervous laugh, but genuine laughter at someone’s pain,” that’s a sign that you’ve got a psychopath on your hands.

I was merely trying to address your comment on the "church" and the fact it is impure. The "church" is like any club, it is only as good as its members. It can be, and I believe is most often used for purposes that the members believe are "good". Good intentions. I believe the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Anyway, theObamaisbad part, is to stay on topic with the hypnotism bit, because that is one method used in hypnotism. Subliminal messaging.
Hope that clears things up.

Let's just suppose for a second that the masses are hypnotized to support Obama. Then what is going on with all the loud hyperbolic attacks Obama receives on a daily basis and the near constant Tea Party protests? Are these people hypnotized into attacking Obama? If Obama is capable of it, then I assume Rush Limbaugh is equally capable of mass hypnotization and is turning untold numbers of Americans into mindless hate-filled drones.
And how did Bush gather all his support? Are we to assume a man as uncharismatic as Bush hypnotized a large portion of the United States? Exactly how often is the public hypnotized into accepting their leaders and why is it that large portions of them act contrary to that hypnosis?
This thread is ridiculous.
