Big Dan's Big News Feb 16, 2008

Republicans: "Those who are against giving us more power and letting us change laws to make our criminal buddies & corporations immune to the law, will somehow cause us all to blow up!"

Wake up! Bush/Cheney & the Republicans are pulling out all the stops to change laws so that lawbreakers suddenly aren't lawbreakers anymore! Criminals aren't criminals...if you change the law that says they're criminals! How do you desperately do that? You go all over TV, radio, newspapers...and say, "The people who don't want to change the law to make "MY/OUR" criminals immune to breaking the law...WILL SOMEHOW CAUSE US ALL TO GET BLOWN UP!!!"

This fascist tactic worked right after 9/11...but everyone's waking up and recognizing this REPUBLICAN FASCIST TACTIC!!!

● GOP Whip on FISA: Dems threaten US security

Please educate yourself by reading how the REPUBLICANS use FASCIST statements and the STRAW MAN argument pertaining to the above article "GOP Whip on FISA: Dems threaten US security"

Wake up to what the Republicans are doing!!! They label their opponents as "aiding the terrorists", "against the troops", "you're gonna get blown up if you don't do what we want"..... It's McCarthyism all over again! If you remember correctly, after NOT keeping us safe on 9/11, the Bush administration and the Republicans then used that event to quickly pass a bunch of unconstitutional laws! And they're still using this "fear" tactic to give their buddies & corporations immunity to the law!

(bd: Remember this from the 2004 Kerry/Bush election?) Vice President Dick Cheney says the United States will risk another terrorist attack if voters make the wrong choice on Election Day, suggesting if you vote Democratic, you're gonna get blown up! (bd: Cheney should've added, "...kinda like how we got blown up on 9/11 when Bush and I fucked up from keeping you safe!).
