Our neoconservative friends are geniuses. They know the power of the spin.

They have come up with some brilliant spins. Their neocon machine has successfully brainwashed the american people with orwellian spins like the "War on Terror", the "Support the Troops" meme and countless others.

Today a lot of us have come to agree that we need to start studying the neocon tactics and use them against them...

The Neocons thrive on terrorism.

If it didn’t exist they had to invent it. They need it because its part of their worldview and philosophies.

Worse even. For them it doesn't matter if the enemy really exist or how great a thread it poses, then you just resort to the "noble lie" their spiritual godfather Leo Strauss promoted.

Best idea I have heard in a long time. Beautiful post. See, this is what the campaign needs.....spin! Part of why we love Ron is that he doesn't spin anything, but this is how they play so we HAVE to start doing it too.

Truth. It is time to spin things OUR way. And that isn't even a spin....

You know what, maybe you are right. Maybe it is time for us to start spinning.

If telling the truth doesn't work let's counter-brainwash the american people. Between the thousands of people in here I am sure we can come up with some powerful spins.

The only reason the neocons are considered strong on terrorism is because they are so good at creating new terrorists.

edit: spin on the "Ron Paul is weak on terrorism" bunk.

More than anything I agree. However, as a Christian, and just a non-screwed up person I believe that the spin should still be the truth. What constitutes spin does not necessarily constitute untruth, it just has to be something that will empassion people to believe what you believe.
