Dueling Demagoguery

Hello and welcome to Marci's mailbag!
Today we'll be looking at this morning's mail.*

Let's stand for improving the education and overall welfare of our nation by going to these websites and signing their petitions and/or signing up for house parties. Let's make a real difference in this so important election year by changing the negative course of America and putting it back on a positive right track

Finally, don't forget to VOTE FOR KERRY this November 2nd. Your vote DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

[In screaming red text. I'll cut. If you want the full version, I can email it to you.]
Really Something!!

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the
Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
[stuff: voluntary, 1%, tax deductable, lockbox, tax free at the end. Intro paragraph then:]

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from
the independent "Trust" fund and put it into the
General fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the
Democratically-controlled House and Senate.

[...snip. It goes on for awhile.]

Then, after doing all this lying and thieving and
violation of the original contract (FICA), the
Democrats turn around and tell you that the
Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is, uninformed citizens
believe it!

Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during
this 2004 election year!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
awareness will be planted and maybe good changes
will evolve.

How many people can YOU send this to?

Keep this going clear up through the 2004 election!!
We need to be heard!

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
[If you're just coming to that realization now, you're fucking slow learner.]

I hate election season.
*These are not actual spam. These are targeted emails sent to me by people I know.
