The politics of fear


Filed Under General on Sep 16 

Talking points on how to scare up votes:

  • There are evil people in the world who lust for power and influence and they are willing to do anything, including hurt innocent people, to get their way.
  • These people are opposed to Americans and the American way of life.
  • Our well-being is at risk and we must act.
  • The policies of a certain administration made matters worse by encouraging the bad guys to become more bold and brazen in their methods.
  • One party sits around and talks about the problem, which it apparently thinks isn’t so bad. The other is ready to take action, even preemptively.
  • We must be willing to make some sacrifices in order to protect the country.
  • It is the role of the Federal Government to provide security and stability because individual people and States cannot do it themselves.

That’s right! I’m writing about economic security and globalization.
