I would like to get my observation out to as many folks as possible in the hopes of countering the subliminal message of the O'Bama signs.
I read an article a few days ago on FR about O'Bama's use of hypnotic suggestion in his speeches. Apparently he holds his fingers the same way someone holds a pencil to emphasize his points. This is supposed to anchor O'Bama in someone's mind when they see fingers held that way. When you are standing over your ballot getting ready to vote, you will see your fingers the same way O'Bama holds his fingers when speaking to you and this sight will trigger O'Bama to come to your mind. I was a bit skeptical. (http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2109105/posts)
I then noticed that O'Bama's signs when looked at from a distance, actually have a filled in circle next to his name. Each sign is establishing a visual picture of a filled in circle with pencil like shading. When you stand over your ballot, and see O'Bama's name with a circle next to it, the visual impressions of the signs will suggest to fill in the circle next to the name. In fact the red color in the circle of the sign is designed to attract the most attention to that part of the message, which in this case is the circle.
We have a candidate that is using hypnotic suggestion on a mass basis. On reflection, I'm not sure we can rely on typical models of turnout or the Bradley effect.
The more this can get out in the general public, the more its effect can be countered. I don't know how effective it is to connect O'Bama's name to a partially filled in circle when people are standing in the ballot box getting ready to vote.
This level of manipulation and deliberate deceit in a candidate is frightening and must stem from massive evil intentions.
Every time I get on the expressway, someone is following me.
And Sigmund Freud said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a smoke.”
I didn’t think Fringe was on till Tuesday nights...
Bob Dole held a pen for years, and not once did I want to vote for him.
I know exactly what you are saying, but this is really happening. I’m the biggest skeptic I know and it pains me to bring this up but it is there none-the-less.
that’s a bit of s atretch ain’t it?
You don’t see the partially filled in circle? You don’t think this makes an impression?
What is a stretch, the fact their is a sign with o'Bama's sign and it has a filled in circle like that of a ballot ?
Take off your aluminum foil hat for a while and try to get some rest .
I don’t think the American people can understand such manipulation even if it were explained to them.
I think the Bradley effect no longer applies with the American people. Even the term “the American people” causes me apprehension.
While I understand it is election season the number of VANITIES is totally getting out of hand. Why is this posted in News/Activism?
The joke is on the 0bama Zombies.
You have to fill the circle in completely or it doesn’t count, and the center of the 0bama logo is empty.
You’re onto something - I’ve suspected for some time that the Obama campaign is trying to make effective advertising and effective yard signs.
