Abraham Lincoln once said that he believed in the people and that if you told them the truth and gave them the cold hard facts they would meet any crisis. That may have been true in 1860, but not today.
I disagree. WHEN in our lifetimes have the American People been told the cold hard truth?
With the liberal propaganda machine running 24-7 for the past 50+ years, FEW people have been exposed to the basic truth of economics. FEW people know what freedom and liberty even MEANS!
How many liberals understand that "spreading the wealth" makes EVERYBODY poorer and lowers the ceiling that people can achieve?
How many people understand that MORE government means EVERYBODY gets oppressed and poorer?
Why not? Because the socialist/progressive/liberal propaganda machine controls the information for most of America.
Show Americans the TRUTH and they CAN weather any storm, defeat any foe.
THAT is the real challenge. Getting the TRUTH out.
