Kudos for using your rights of free speech unlike some are unwilling to do unfortunately.
In reality, one voice can't make much of a difference - unless they are talking to the right people that is. What we really need to do is form a
large group of people who are willing to devote their free time into bombarding these types of people who are trying to (and some succeeding) take
away our rights, and also protrude against our free will and take over our minds (to be frank).
Political agendas are taking more effect these days because of how media is spread with technology. The fact that once a "breaking story" hits the
news can be sent to a cell phone and alert the person who owns it makes it that much easier for them to get propaganda straight to their minds without
even hearing the truth or at least an argument against whatever is being said to them.
This is very sad that's all I left to say right now
The key in talking to these people, is to do just that. Talk and don't shout, be civilized about it, and don't engage them in a way that just gives
them cause to discredit you and what you are promoting.
Tea Parties are great, but when you are burning efigies it becomes all too easy for people to discredit you, based on the very fear factor you help
them conjure up.
When you engage them in high quality discourse, complete with well thought out probing questions on their position, and make it an interactive
presentation, by putting your contentions to them in the form of presented information followed up by questions, on how they then would interpret the
same information it gets a lot harder for them to disagree with you.
This is how I have deprogrammed 5 census workers to date, I explain to them the history of the census, how it come to be, the history of the nation,
the history of the banking system, the legalese of the words the census employs, all the while asking them at each step, well what does that sound
like to you? What do you think all that means, now that you know more?
They put away their clip boards in shame and go home thanking me for taking the time to educate them on things they never knew about.
I do it in a cheerful, jovial, polite, and non-threatening manner, where I turn it into an informative discussion and not a tirade or lecture and I
let them participate in the process the same way a school teacher would.
It is my belief that the bottom rungs of the government, about 9/10ths of the people who work for it, actually have no idea what they are really doing
for the government or why, but just like the rest of us are out to collect a paycheck.
Everything changes with real communication, and this is what Sunstein and his ilk are really frightened of, the Internet is better educating us to
communicate, outside of the control of the government controlled educational system and medias.
The pen is mightier than the sword and trust me when I say, they would much rather take away the internet from us than our guns.
Thanks my friend.
