The TrueMajority 10 Principles (Help dissect propaganda)
True Majority ^ | 3/05/03 | Ben Cohen

Posted on 03/05/2003 4:56:41 PM PST by listenhillary

1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people.

2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist, and find another path.

3. End our Obstructionism to the World's Treaties. Throw America's full weight behind the United Nations, the only political body that holds all the world’s nations in the age of globalization. If the United States participates in the United Nations more effectively and fully, other nations will follow suit. Pay our U.N. dues on time and without conditions. Withdraw our lonely opposition to the landmine ban, Kyoto Protocol to halt global warming, and International Criminal Court. Show once again the "decent respect for the opinions of mankind" that our Declaration of Independence affirms.

4. Reduce our Dependence on Oil & Lead the World to an Age of Renewable Energy. Oil holds us hostage to regimes hated by their own people; their hatred transfers to us. America is 5% of the world's people but we generate 25% of the pollution that causes global warming. It's our duty to lead. We will reduce our energy consumption 25% by 2010. Make a Moon Mission scale commitment to develop solar and wind power technologies. Set and meet a goal of generating 20% of our energy from renewable sources by 2010.

5. Close the Book on the Cold War and Ease the Nuclear Nightmare. Cast a cold eye on giant weapons designed to destroy giant enemies that no longer exist. Cancel obsolete Cold War weapons. We applaud the nuclear force cuts announced by President Bush, but even 2,000 warheads poised and aimed at Russia are unwise. We squander $35 billion a year on this obsolete arsenal. Save half of that money, take our missiles off "launch on warning" and invite all nuclear nations to negotiate a nuclear weapons ban.

6. Renounce Star Wars and the Militarization of Space. After spending $134 billion dollars (twice our lifetime commitment to cancer research!) our military has nothing to show for its obsession with a dubious Missile Defense but the deep suspicions of our new allies. Enough is enough.

7. Make Globalization Work for, not against, Working People. Open the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to the public. Let sunshine into the councils of the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Affirm that the welfare of the planet's people supersedes corporate patents and profits.

8. Ensure Equal Treatment Under Law for All. Vigorously enforce and strengthen the nation’s civil rights laws that guarantee freedom from discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation or physical ability. Reform America’s criminal justice system laws so that justice is no longer systematically dispensed in a way that disadvantages minorities.

9. Get Money out of Politics. Curtail the vast corrupting influence of corporate campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to private interests. Enact public campaign financing--we can fund it entirely by closing a single offshore corporate tax loophole!

10. Close the Gap between Rich and Poor Kids at Home. All these words will ring hollow to the world if America does not close the chasm between rich and poor in our own society. We will fully fund Head Start and health insurance for the millions of American children who can't get either. We will invest the money needed to build and nourish schools worthy of this great nation.

Why? These ignorant fools have already made up their minds. Why confuse them with the facts and the truth?

better yet, I;ll paraphrase theirs into the truth:

1. USA must feed the world for free, and forgive all debts.
2. Give lip service to championing rights, but do nothing constructive.
3. Abandon soveriegnty. Succumb to CCI and Kyoto in order to destroy the USA quickly. Shred Constitution.
4. Adopt, overnight, fuel technology that has no hope in a free market, funnel all research and energy monies to our friends in "progressive" companies.
5. Scrap the arsenal. Now. USA must be weak.
6. Stop the missile shield project. Even purely defensive military is forbidden.
7. Abolish the business model, give away free money to our socialist friends without strings.
8. Bring back affirmative action, release all minority prisoners. Now.
9. Enable our lap dog media to monopolize all political messages so that only we are heard.
10. Topple all of society now, socialize America so we are all "equal", except those of us elites who need to oversee the new Communist Nation.

To do this you would have to overthrow all the corrupt socialist regiemes around the world and replace them with U.S government backed regiemes taking advice from Conservative Supply-Side Chicago Economists I.E Chile, Korea, Japan.

We have to increase military spending to do this and you also have to stop forgiving debts because doing this only allows the kleptocrats running these regiemes to keep on pilfering and surviving by spending all the money on unproductive wealth redistribution schemes.

1.poverty and hunger are the result not of enough food, but unequal distribution of food...overthrow marxist governments who engage in food-as-warfare programs

2.Treaties are all nice and well and good, but have no teeth in practical reality...see number 1

"Gosh, were ya born stupid or did yer momma drop ya...see #2,follow link to #1

4. oil is, for the foreseeable future, the only viable energy source for most products, except nuclear...invest in safe nuclear energy...and we may be only 5% and produce 25%, but we are far more productive and produce well over 25% of the worlds goods...would you rather that China be 20% of the world population, produce 8% of the worlds goods, and also produce 53% of the worlds pollution?...shut up and go see #3, follow links

5.nuclear weapons are way cool...screw you, I like 'em

6. If you could knock an intercontinental ballistic missile out of the sky, suddenly all those billions spent on such would be available to socialist welfare programs...methinks you aren't looking at the big picture...see#3, follow the links

7.corporations ARE people, ya twit...

8.totally bogus...minorities commit an over-represented percentage of crimes because socialist whinings tell them they're special and not subject to being responsible for their actions...see#3, follow the links

9.money is a form of speech...the Supreme Court said so...shut up and either contribute to "pansiesforstalinism" or just shut up

10.the only gap between poor and rich kids is that rich kids can be educated in private schools where such inane socialist drivel as embodied in the other 9 above points is not allowed to fester and infect...vouchers, vouchers, vouchers

Well, here are a few points for starters:

Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions.
The U.S. provides more money in foreign aid than any other nation. We also provide a MINIMUM of $200 billion in charitable giving a year. How much of that is foreign aid I’m not sure. This of course does not include the MASSIVE amounts of remittances funneled from recent immigrants to their home countries, and does not account for the value of the massive amounts of time and labor provided by individuals in NGOs (non-governmental organizations).

Reduce the debts of impoverished countries.
Tell them to set up a privately funded foundation for this purpose.

Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people.
Then how will you provide for the common defense?

Make America stand for justice, not expediency.
Irrelevant claptrap.

Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people.
Like Iraq, North Korea, and Iran?

Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women.
Only if we convene a Convention on the Rights of Conservatives in America and the Convention on the Elimination of Demonization of Men.

If punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist, and find another path.
Turn it around: If NOT punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist and find another path (i.e., punish the tyrant).

Throw America's full weight behind the United Nations, the only political body that holds all the world’s nations in the age of globalization.
We already pay the bulk of the UN’s dues.

If the United States participates in the United Nations more effectively and fully, other nations will follow suit.
If the rest of the world participates in the UN more effectively and uses it for its intended purpose, the U.S. will follow suit.

Pay our U.N. dues on time and without conditions.
Talk to Bill Clinton about that one.

Withdraw our lonely opposition to the landmine ban, Kyoto Protocol to halt global warming, and International Criminal Court.
The Kyoto Protocol will do very little to reduce global warming but will devastate our economy, upon which the entire world depends. Tough to combat poverty when the world economy collapses. The ICC has fundamental structural flaws: Namely, it claims power over the U.S. Constitution. We only recognize the powers granted by the constitution.

Show once again the "decent respect for the opinions of mankind" that our Declaration of Independence affirms.
We’ll respect other nations when they get off their asses and do something to oppose tyranny. Other nations need to stop being parasites of America’s power – i.e., stop flourishing under our protection while doing nothing to ensure their own (or ours).

America is 5% of the world's people but we generate 25% of the pollution that causes global warming.
Actually, Third World countries are the source of most pollution, not the industrialized nations.

It's our duty to lead. We will reduce our energy consumption 25% by 2010. Make a Moon Mission scale commitment to develop solar and wind power technologies. Set and meet a goal of generating 20% of our energy from renewable sources by 2010.
Ah hell, this one is too big to handle. Let’s just say the issue is far, far more complicated than just building solar panels and wind farms.

5. Close the Book on the Cold War and Ease the Nuclear Nightmare. Cast a cold eye on giant weapons designed to destroy giant enemies that no longer exist.
As noted below, we now only have 10% of our previous warhead arsenal. Sounds like impatience to me.

Cancel obsolete Cold War weapons.
Ask for their military qualifications. If they do not study military strategy they are effectively idiots spouting nonsense.

We applaud the nuclear force cuts announced by President Bush, but even 2,000 warheads poised and aimed at Russia are unwise.
See above.

Actually, they are aimed all over the place. This is a red flag that indicates gross ignorance.
We squander $35 billion a year on this obsolete arsenal.
$35 billion represents less than 10% of our military budget and only 0.35% of our yearly GDP. Hardly a disaster.

Save half of that money, take our missiles off "launch on warning" and invite all nuclear nations to negotiate a nuclear weapons ban.
We have already signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. You know, the treaty that North Korea, Iraq, and Iran are ignoring. And use of nuclear weapons – in fact, chemical and biological weapons, as well -- is already forbidden in international law.

6. Renounce Star Wars and the Militarization of Space. After spending $134 billion dollars (twice our lifetime commitment to cancer research!) our military has nothing to show for its obsession with a dubious Missile Defense but the deep suspicions of our new allies.
It’s called research. And it’s not our allies who are worried.

7. Make Globalization Work for, not against, Working People.

Actually, studies have shown that those companies which have integrated their economies more fully in the global system have enjoyed greater economic growth.
Open the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to the public. Let sunshine into the councils of the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
OK. I can live with this.

Affirm that the welfare of the planet's people supersedes corporate patents and profits.
No, actually the rights of the individual supercede the rights of the collective. Human rights and the right to private property (i.e., ‘profits’) have been shown to be one and the same.

8. Ensure Equal Treatment Under Law for All. Vigorously enforce and strengthen the nation’s civil rights laws that guarantee freedom from discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation or physical ability.
This is sloppy thinking. Laws don’t guarantee anything. They make certain acts illegal, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 made these things illegal. It is illegal to murder, but that doesn’t mean that people don’t get murdered.

Reform America’s criminal justice system laws so that justice is no longer systematically dispensed in a way that disadvantages minorities.
Ask them to proof it. More minorities may be in the prisons, but that doesn’t mean the laws are flawed. This is a logical fallacy.

9. Get Money out of Politics. Curtail the vast corrupting influence of corporate campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to private interests.
OK, let’s ban the vast corrupting influence of union and Lefty activist campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to their private interests.

Enact public campaign financing--we can fund it entirely by closing a single offshore corporate tax loophole!
Who determines which party gets how much money?

10. Close the Gap between Rich and Poor Kids at Home. All these words will ring hollow to the world if America does not close the chasm between rich and poor in our own society.
We will fully fund Head Start and health insurance for the millions of American children who can't get either. We will invest the money needed to build and nourish schools worthy of this great nation.

1. The nations where the children are not starving correlates to the countries with the most capitalism and economic freedom. End starvation? We must remove authoritarian regimes that use food as a weapon. Removing authoritarian regimes would show the most compassion to the poor. Shift foreign aid to countries adopting our constitutional form of government that puts severe limitations on government power and maximum power in the hands of individuals. We can end foreign aid to buy weapons after we have eliminated dictators, socialists, oligarchies and other authoritarian forms of government.

2. You mean like Iraq and North Korea? Part two - See above, no foreign aid, emergency aid to countries with authoritarian rulers.

3. You mean the UN that has elected Libya to lead the UN human rights committee? The UN that has elected Iraq to the disarmament committee? The UN that holds 10 billion of Saddam’s oil for food money. Koyoto treaty- This is the treaty that everyone agreed to in principle but no one signed, right? The treaty that penalizes the USA which is one of the cleanest industrial producers and lets China get away with ‘bout anything?
The international court that trumps our supreme court? Sorry.

4. I can agree to reducing our dependence on oil. Not if it’s at the point of the gun of a government employee. The one that decides to save money on the socialized medicine program by forcing the US citizen to turn in our automobiles so they can be melted down to make bicycles. (insert egalitarian orgasm here) No more oil would mean our young’uns would be telling us through the little speaker boxes “Ya want yeast fries with that yeast burger?”

5. If we have an obsolete arsenal, we better get busy and build a new one. Arsenal can be gotten rid of when all of the authoritarian dictators have been shot by their armed populace.

6. Better talk to China about that.

Ran out of steam. Will use many of your points in my rebuttal. Thanks all!

Good stuff!

By the way this organization is passing an email that is encouraging the filibuster of Miguel Estrada. Bullsh*t follows... (Psst. the email can be edited with your own comments)

Bush and Allies Try to Slip Right Wing Judge Through Senate
Tell Your Senators to Support a Filibuster

Click this link to send your fax:

http://www.truemajority.com/index.asp?action=2437&ms=Estr2

We all knew that with the White House and Congress in the hands of folks who'd like lifetime appointments to the federal courts to represent their narrow special interests, we'd be in for a few bad judicial nominations. We just didn't think it would be this bad, this fast. But the national focus on the possibility of America attacking Iraq seemed like the perfect time for those who would pack the courts to sneak the first one by us.

Bush and his allies in the Senate are trying to push through the confirmation of Miguel Estrada for the D.C. Court of Appeals, the second most important court in the nation. Opposition to his anti-civil liberty/pro-corporate ideology is coming from many quarters including The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, labor unions, and People for the American Way. He refused to answer even the most basic questions about his views during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, and his nomination was only able to move forward because of a party-line vote.
(Favorite unanswered question: "Can you name ONE Supreme Court ruling in the last 50 years you disagree with?")

Now fearing the gathering storm opposing his nomination, the Senate Leaders have scheduled the vote on his nomination for the same day Colin Powell will be speaking about Iraq at the United Nations. That way they hope that the media and the public will be too distracted to notice what they are doing. Don't let this happen. Click this link to send your free faxes:

http://www.truemajority.com/index.asp?action=2437&ms=Estr2

And please forward this email to anyone else you know who is worried that the Judiciary might end up in the hands of right-wing extremists.

Here is the letter we'll add your name to and fax to your Senators:

Dear Senator:

I write as a constituent of yours to urge you to support a filibuster opposing the nomination of Miguel Estrada to the D.C. Court of Appeals. His views on civil liberties, the power of corporations, and other important matters are too extreme for our courts.

During his nomination hearing Mr. Estrada refused to answer even the most basic questions about his judicial philosophy thus preventing the Senate from fulfilling
it's constitutional role to advise and consent. On these grounds alone you should oppose this nomination whether you agree with his apparent judicial philosophy or not.

Thank you for your consideration of this crucial matter.

Sincerely,
(We'll add your name and address here.)

Where to begin?...so much folly, so little time.

"1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people."

See, America--the most generous nation on Earth, at any time in history--must impoverish itself in the name of "compassion". Six billion humans is not enough--especially if they are third-world humans. And no amount of aid is sufficient--until the tax burden on productive Americans reduces us to third-world living standards.

2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist, and find another path."

Only women and children are victims of foreign tyrants, eh?...And no thanks on "Conventions" invented by NGOs with hidden agendas. Enough weasel-words in those "conventions" to drive several tanks through. And you know, we already have way too many treaties and foreign entanglements, thanks anyhow.

"3. End our Obstructionism to the World's Treaties. Throw America's full weight behind the United Nations, the only political body that holds all the world’s nations in the age of globalization. If the United States participates in the United Nations more effectively and fully, other nations will follow suit. Pay our U.N. dues on time and without conditions. Withdraw our lonely opposition to the landmine ban, Kyoto Protocol to halt global warming, and International Criminal Court. Show once again the "decent respect for the opinions of mankind" that our Declaration of Independence affirms."

I'd like to throw America's full weight behind throwing the United Nations out of America.

And the out-of-context "decent respect"--in context below--requires us to support none of these idiotic notions:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

4. Reduce our Dependence on Oil & Lead the World to an Age of Renewable Energy. Oil holds us hostage to regimes hated by their own people; their hatred transfers to us. America is 5% of the world's people but we generate 25% of the pollution that causes global warming. It's our duty to lead. We will reduce our energy consumption 25% by 2010. Make a Moon Mission scale commitment to develop solar and wind power technologies. Set and meet a goal of generating 20% of our energy from renewable sources by 2010.

Idiots. Solar and wind power are far too dilute to be more than niche sources. Nuclear power and methane hydrates are the solution to "oil dependence". Oh, and by the way, we have vast supplies of coal which these jerks basically have outlawed.

America is 5% of the world and has supplied--I dunno--80% of the inventions and advancements in human living conditions. The electric light. Modern medicine. Weather satellites. Computers. The telephone. Television. The (affordable) automobile. Mass production. Airplanes. Incredible advances in agriculture--the so-called "green revolution". And at the pinnacle of human achievement: Coca-Cola.

"5. Close the Book on the Cold War and Ease the Nuclear Nightmare. Cast a cold eye on giant weapons designed to destroy giant enemies that no longer exist. Cancel obsolete Cold War weapons. We applaud the nuclear force cuts announced by President Bush, but even 2,000 warheads poised and aimed at Russia are unwise. We squander $35 billion a year on this obsolete arsenal. Save half of that money, take our missiles off "launch on warning" and invite all nuclear nations to negotiate a nuclear weapons ban."

Of course. We can implictly trust the Russians--the people who invented the Potemkin village. I gotta idea. Let's aim one or more warheads wherever the "True Majority" makes its headquarters.

"6. Renounce Star Wars and the Militarization of Space. After spending $134 billion dollars (twice our lifetime commitment to cancer research!) our military has nothing to show for its obsession with a dubious Missile Defense but the deep suspicions of our new allies. Enough is enough."

Yeah. Edward Teller was wrong and you guys are right. You would not know Newton's Laws of Motion if they were shoved up your ass. Yet you are qualified to claim that a complex engineering program is 'dubious'. Oh yeah. Solve me a partial differential equation and get back to us.

"7. Make Globalization Work for, not against, Working People. Open the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to the public. Let sunshine into the councils of the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Affirm that the welfare of the planet's people supersedes corporate patents and profits."

More sucking from the leeches. Drug companies--in this view--have no right to profit from life-saving wonder drugs that cost hundreds of millions of dollars to develop. Give 'em away. Er, why would anyone pony up big bucks to lose money for themselves and their stockholders? And how many wonder drugs has 'The True Majority' produced?

>"8. Ensure Equal Treatment Under Law for All. Vigorously enforce and strengthen the nation’s civil rights laws that guarantee freedom from discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation or physical ability. Reform America’s criminal justice system laws so that justice is no longer systematically dispensed in a way that disadvantages minorities."

First put the Clintons in jail--then get back to us on that business about 'equal treatment'. Does 'sexual orientation' include pedophilia? And--gosh--if minorities would just stop committing crimes vastly in excess of their proportion in the population, we could take a look at "reform". How many WASP gang shootings were there last year?

"9. Get Money out of Politics. Curtail the vast corrupting influence of corporate campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to private interests. Enact public campaign financing--we can fund it entirely by closing a single offshore corporate tax loophole!"

Uh huh. Just more crap about forcing U.S. taxpayers to finance political campaigns. What part of 'voluntary donation' do you not understand?

"10. Close the Gap between Rich and Poor Kids at Home. All these words will ring hollow to the world if America does not close the chasm between rich and poor in our own society. We will fully fund Head Start and health insurance for the millions of American children who can't get either. We will invest the money needed to build and nourish schools worthy of this great nation."

Radical egalitarianism: the idea that we can make everyone equal by making everyone equally poor. Head Start is a failure. Socialized medicine is the reason health costs are spiralling out of control--and your solution is more of the same poison. And leftist groups like the NEA are what has destroyed our schools. The entire public school system should be eliminated, root and branch. The Dept. of Education abolished. And anyone who is a member of the NEA should be registered like a sex offender and forbidden to come within 50 yards of a child.

I believe this was written by Abraham Lincoln.
 

'Ten Cannots'

You cannot bring about prosperity discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot further brotherhood of men by inciting class hatred.
You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative.
You cannot really help men by having the government tax them to do for them what they can and should do for themselves.

FOUR POINTS OF THE COMPASS: RESTORING AMERICA'S SENSE OF DIRECTION, By Balint Vazsonyi. You might want to check out his archives. He writes clearly and with such love for America....how can a liberal be annoyed by such goodness? (^;

TrueMajority’s principles are endorsed by Greenpeace, Rock the Vote, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Peace Action, the National Head Start Association, Global Exchange, The Interfaith Alliance, The Nation magazine, Sojourners, Rainforest Action Network, Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Council of La Raza, and a long and growing list of Americans

Oh goody. More commies for my list. These ten principles are direct derivatives of the 45 goals. Watch, its just the same tired garbage in a new can.

5th Goal Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites.
6th Goal Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination
= 1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people.

See its that easy. Once you understand the buzz words it the same drivel that sounds good on paper, but someone has to implement it. That someone is always GODLESS and EVIL. i.e. Stalin,Lenin,Pol pot,etc. etc. etc.

The history books that haven't been bastardized by these maggots reflects these facts.

WORK AT THEM BACKWARDS WITH THEIR OWN RHETORIC SUCH AS

Note: The first rule and last five (or six, depending on situation) rules are generally not directly within the ability of the traditional disinfo artist to apply. These rules are generally used more directly by those at the leadership, key players, or planning level of the criminal conspiracy or conspiracy to cover up.

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.  Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor,  etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen,  and you never have to deal with the issues.
2. Become incredulous and indignant.  Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus  on side issues which can be used show the topic  as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the  'How dare you!' gambit.
3. Create rumor mongers.  Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method which works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public  can learn of the facts are through such 'arguable rumors'. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a 'wild rumor' from a 'bunch of kids on the Internet' which can have no basis in fact.
4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent's   argument which you can easily knock down to make  yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges.  Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

The True Majority 10 Principles

1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people.

To eliminate world hunger many, many despots will have to be eliminated and republican forms of government implemented. That would make eliminating debt a reasonable act since the limited wealth of the impoverished nations will be less likely to end up in Swiss bank accounts (such as the fortunes in Arafat’s and Saddam’s foreign accounts). However, in the beginning we will need to purchase more arms, and recruit more soldiers, to set this all in motion.

2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist, and find another path.

See the answer to #1 for the primary solution. Outlawing Islam worldwide will go a long way in the elimination of discrimination against women. Revamping the U.N., allowing only representative forms of government to have seats, will be necessary before any so-called “convention on rights” will pass the credibility test. For example, Libya currently heads the Commission on Human Rights, which does not (repeat, does not) pass the credibility test; Syria sits on the Security Council; etc.,

3. End our Obstructionism to the World's Treaties. Throw America's full weight behind the United Nations, the only political body that holds all the world’s nations in the age of globalization. If the United States participates in the United Nations more effectively and fully, other nations will follow suit. Pay our U.N. dues on time and without conditions. Withdraw our lonely opposition to the landmine ban, Kyoto Protocol to halt global warming, and International Criminal Court. Show once again the "decent respect for the opinions of mankind" that our Declaration of Independence affirms.

The United States is much too important a nation to the future of the world, and to potential world freedom, to hand over its sovereignty to the current conglomerate of self-serving nations, many of which are ruled by despots. It might work, however, if the United States had sole veto power, and if all proposals submitted by the United States were automatically approved by the U. N. Otherwise, jealousies and other human character flaws will continue to render the U. N. irrelevant.

The International Criminal Court does not recognize the United States Constitution and the rights endowed to us by our Creator. Therefore, it would be necessary for the United States Constitution to have controlling authority over its operations for it to be a just court.

See answer #1 for the primary solution to the land-mine problem. That is, get rid of the despots of the world, and the elimination of land-mines will be practical. The underlying principle is to disarm the bad guys, not the good guys. This works equally well in neighborhoods and nations.

Kyoto was so flawed that the United States Senate voted 95-0 against it. Senate Resolution 98, introduced by Senator Byrd, and with 64 co-sponsors, states:

     (1) the United States should not be a signatory to any protocol to, or other agreement regarding, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 1992, at negotiations in Kyoto in December 1997, or thereafter, which would--

                (A) mandate new commitments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the Annex I Parties, unless the protocol or other agreement also mandates new specific scheduled commitments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions for Developing Country Parties within the same compliance period, or

                 (B) would result in serious harm to the economy of the United States; and

      (2) any such protocol or other agreement which would require the advice and consent of the Senate to ratification should be accompanied by a detailed explanation of any legislation or regulatory actions that may be required to implement the protocol or other agreement and should also be accompanied by an analysis of the detailed financial costs and other impacts on the economy of the United States which would be incurred by the implementation of the protocol or other agreement.

There are few senators I trust individually, but it is difficult to argue with a 95-0 vote. We are also fortunate to have a leader such as President Bush who understood that the Kyoto Treaty was flawed beyond repair.

4. Reduce our Dependence on Oil & Lead the World to an Age of Renewable Energy. Oil holds us hostage to regimes hated by their own people; their hatred transfers to us. America is 5% of the world's people but we generate 25% of the pollution that causes global warming. It's our duty to lead. We will reduce our energy consumption 25% by 2010. Make a Moon Mission scale commitment to develop solar and wind power technologies. Set and meet a goal of generating 20% of our energy from renewable sources by 2010.

First, as an environmental engineer I can assure you that, with known technologies, solar and wind power are not viable alternatives for any significant portion of the energy requirements of the United States. Hydrogen, while clean burning, requires more energy to produce than it would generate using existing technologies, and would be a viable alternative only if other sources of energy (e.g., nuclear) were available for its production. Alcohol is reasonably clean burning, and is produced from renewable sources. But production in amounts necessary to fuel our technological engine, and those of the world, would require vast acreage and significant machinery and other technology. It would also reduce the land area available for food production. Water Power is renewable and cheap, but environmental extremists have made it difficult to build new dams. Maybe we will get lucky with nuclear fusion, or with some other breakthrough. But in the meantime we must make do with what we know and what we have. One immediate and practical step to reduce foreign dependence on oil would be to open up all ANWR to drilling.

I desire a clean environment, but I am practical, realizing that technology is necessary to extend human life and to increase the quality of life. God gave us the intelligence to reduce human misery and suffering, and it is our duty to utilize it. I personally use mass transit for commuting, preferring my BMW SUV for local travel or for vacations. On the other end of the scale, others prefer limousines, heavy armor-plated SUV’s, and private jets or helicopters for all travel. Where do we start on energy consumption? Do we first ban all private jets, and private vehicles over, say, 5000 pounds? Do we tear down all mansions in California, South Florida, the Hudson River, Hyannis Port, and Long Island and force the rich owners to move into smaller, more energy-efficient Mac-Mansions? Do we set a fixed congressional term of, say, 6 months, and force the congress to stay in Washington the entire time (thus eliminating congressional junkets and all the “wasted” fuel). Or do we continue to promote the wealth engine of capitalism with the understanding that capitalism, and only capitalism, provides the incentive to create the new technological wonders to solve the world’s problems, including the world’s food, energy and pollution problems? I choose the latter.

I am still unconvinced that Global Warming exists, and even less convinced it would be a man-made phenomena, even if I could be convinced it was occurring. There is no scientific consensus among climatologists, so I am in good company. I do not, however, discount the climatic effects the world’s volcanoes might generate, realizing that increased activity could alter the world’s climate somewhat, while contributing to particulate and gaseous pollution.

5. Close the Book on the Cold War and Ease the Nuclear Nightmare. Cast a cold eye on giant weapons designed to destroy giant enemies that no longer exist. Cancel obsolete Cold War weapons. We applaud the nuclear force cuts announced by President Bush, but even 2,000 warheads poised and aimed at Russia are unwise. We squander $35 billion a year on this obsolete arsenal. Save half of that money, take our missiles off "launch on warning" and invite all nuclear nations to negotiate a nuclear weapons ban.

Get back to me when all despots are in the grave, and the world’s people are free and living under representative republican governments. Until that time, the maximum deterrent is preferred.

6. Renounce Star Wars and the Militarization of Space. After spending $134 billion dollars (twice our lifetime commitment to cancer research!) our military has nothing to show for its obsession with a dubious Missile Defense but the deep suspicions of our new allies. Enough is enough.

See my answer to #5.

7. Make Globalization Work for, not against, Working People. Open the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to the public. Let sunshine into the councils of the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Affirm that the welfare of the planet's people supersedes corporate patents and profits.

Most of what you ask in #7 is reasonable. I, too, prefer open-ness, when not in conflict with national security. However, I believe the welfare of the planet ultimately depends on the incentives of capitalism, and its associated corporate patents and profits. Severe penalties for lies and/or deception within the corporate environment (which includes the media and advertising environments) would be acceptable. Tinkering with capitalism in other ways is foolish.

8. Ensure Equal Treatment Under Law for All. Vigorously enforce and strengthen the nation’s civil rights laws that guarantee freedom from discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation or physical ability. Reform America’s criminal justice system laws so that justice is no longer systematically dispensed in a way that disadvantages minorities.

In other words, you propose we support and defend the Constitution of the United States. With one exception, I couldn’t agree more, and I am happy you are opposed to affirmative action. But considering the unclean nature of homosexuality, particularly among males, a certain amount of “discriminatory” regulation is preferable.

9. Get Money out of Politics. Curtail the vast corrupting influence of corporate campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to private interests. Enact public campaign financing--we can fund it entirely by closing a single offshore corporate tax loophole!

Adopting a flat consumption tax, with no exceptions, present or future, will get a lot of money out of politics since politicians currently use the bewildering maze of tax laws as leverage against business (hence, the offshore corporate tax loophole and other loopholes). Deregulation will further reduce the money in politics by also reducing the leverage congressmen have against businesses.

Public financing sounds good, but who determines who runs for office -- who receives the public funds? For example, suppose 10,000 people decide to run for a single congressional district. Do all receive public financing? Do we flip a coin or draw straws for, say, 4 of the 10,000 to compete against each other? Or do we require each prospective candidate to receive a certain number of signatures from their constituents before receiving public financing (and who pays for obtaining those signatures)? Maybe I am overlooking something considering all the hype about public financing.

10. Close the Gap between Rich and Poor Kids at Home. All these words will ring hollow to the world if America does not close the chasm between rich and poor in our own society. We will fully fund Head Start and health insurance for the millions of American children who can't get either. We will invest the money needed to build and nourish schools worthy of this great nation.

We have two choices with regard to the “chasm”, and to such luxuries as health insurance: (1) we can make everyone healthy and poor, or (2) we can promote capitalism. But no amount of money will help the current public school system, nor make it a safe environment for our children. To ensure every child receives the best education he or she can mentally and emotionally handle, scrap current public policy, return all control to localities (dismantle the U.S Department of Education and throw it on the scrap heap of bad ideas), and restore the rights of parents and of teachers to discipline the children. It is also necessary to restore the teaching of traditional ethics, for example by posting “Do unto others as ye would have them do unto you” signs in all hallways, to promote a safe environment.

TrueMajority’s principles are endorsed by Greenpeace, Rock the Vote, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Peace Action, the National Head Start Association, Global Exchange, The Interfaith Alliance, The Nation magazine, Sojourners, Rainforest Action Network, Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Council of La Raza, and a long and growing list of Americans.

I see that TrueMajority is endorsed by an impressive array of idealists. Spice it up with an equally impressive array of pragmatists and you may be able to come up with more workable, less contradictory, proposals.

FOUR POINTS OF THE COMPASS: RESTORING AMERICA'S SENSE OF DIRECTION, By Balint Vazsonyi.

http://www.founding.org/fpotc.html

What a wonderful link! Powerful stuff! - Thank you! I'll have to look for his books. Passed on this essay to others.

You know, some of the people who cherish what America is and stands for were not born here. They have the perspective of looking from the outside in I guess. Too many Americans take what they have for granted.

"You don't know what you got til it's gone, take paradise and put up a damned socialist government"
Take that Joni Mitchell! (I admit I don't know what her politics are. Probably leftist, maybe with her intelligence she has seen the light!)

1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people.

An advocacy of action against an nebulous and ill defined "evil" is always a blanket justification for centralized collective and mandated action. In this principle the sentiments best held for moral and religous faith, such as compassion, become the trumps to over-rule law and property. Under this sort of principle as the first one, no normal uses of political order stand immune.

The Grace of salvation is not obtainable in the politcal formulas of such schemes.

2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means, in actual practice, punishing the women and children who are his victims, desist, and find another path.

It is always a warning sign to the intellect when the "Child" is mentioned by the world-government, democratic-totalitatrians. As Voegelin said, militant ideology seeks to immanitize the symbols of transcendence. Divinity of God, Grace and Purity are substituted by the Secular Humanist with "Innocence" of the "Child". Repudiation to an Enduring Moral Order is made by again presenting a Trump Card, this Child-Innocence to sweep away all Law and Order established through the ages.

Likewise, Justice is evoked and then neutralized by the use of "epediancy" because justice that is not epediant, sure and swift is no justice at all. The use of expediancy allows the tationalistic-totalitarian-democrat to always alter the application of justice.

Again in closing the paragraph, they call for application of Law of committee, that is not Law of a Soverign Nation, formed, applied and judeged with proper checks and balances, as well as protections, but instead applied by the Annointed of World Councils alone. Then to truely shatter any hope of true virtue being wrested from even such a cause, they instist that its application never be applied against the evil it percieves if "the child" is endagered...as only the Annointed Left can analyze.

3. End our Obstructionism to the World's Treaties. Throw America's full weight behind the United Nations, the only political body that holds all the world’s nations in the age of globalization. If the United States participates in the United Nations more effectively and fully, other nations will follow suit. Pay our U.N. dues on time and without conditions. Withdraw our lonely opposition to the landmine ban, Kyoto Protocol to halt global warming, and International Criminal Court. Show once again the "decent respect for the opinions of mankind" that our Declaration of Independence affirms.

Treaties are important. Our Nation has been a bulwark for honoring such agreements. The nations of the left have not. By use of the word, Obstructionism, we see it is not honoring a treaty that is desired by this item but, instead, capitualiting to a leftist formulized type of treaty. The raising of the UN to paramount political body when it is nothing of the sort, exposes the motives of the rationalist-totalitarians. Without proper representation and protections, the people of our nation and others are ripe for the schemes we saw from the French Revolution, to Lenin, to Mao and on to the Ted Kennedy's and Daschle's of today.

Our nation's Declaration to the "opinions" of mankind was made to state our reasons for action, not to appeal to the sentimentality and opinions of others for guidance. We were claiming our "Rights" as they existed and were making clear our motives, not our desires.

4. Reduce our Dependence on Oil & Lead the World to an Age of Renewable Energy. Oil holds us hostage to regimes hated by their own people; their hatred transfers to us. America is 5% of the world's people but we generate 25% of the pollution that causes global warming. It's our duty to lead. We will reduce our energy consumption 25% by 2010. Make a Moon Mission scale commitment to develop solar and wind power technologies. Set and meet a goal of generating 20% of our energy from renewable sources by 2010.

Conservation is a good cause as well as energy independence. I think they have made the point of how important it is to drill the north Alaska fields and apply technology to our problems. I hope they can follow through and not just mandate percentages.

5. Close the Book on the Cold War and Ease the Nuclear Nightmare. Cast a cold eye on giant weapons designed to destroy giant enemies that no longer exist. Cancel obsolete Cold War weapons. We applaud the nuclear force cuts announced by President Bush, but even 2,000 warheads poised and aimed at Russia are unwise. We squander $35 billion a year on this obsolete arsenal. Save half of that money, take our missiles off "launch on warning" and invite all nuclear nations to negotiate a nuclear weapons ban.

Isn't such force reduction already happening in a general and prudent manner? Why the rush to abandone defense? Who is served?

6. Renounce Star Wars and the Militarization of Space. After spending $134 billion dollars (twice our lifetime commitment to cancer research!) our military has nothing to show for its obsession with a dubious Missile Defense but the deep suspicions of our new allies. Enough is enough.

Technically applied deterance and defense here in number six, is the balance to number five. If threats we are exposed to are not large states, then they are small, difficult to target without technology and pin-point accuracy and the needs for such defenses are clear. Why abandone them? Can threats then made realizable be ignored? Are we then open to command by tyrants, criminals and the worst of the world? Its obvisous we are if this is applied.

7. Make Globalization Work for, not against, Working People. Open the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to the public. Let sunshine into the councils of the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Affirm that the welfare of the planet's people supersedes corporate patents and profits.

Read the Mystery of Capital by Hernondo de "Soto and see that application of true Whig principles protecting property are the items missing for the successful application of Free Markets and their benefits around the world. Welfare as a goal won't start that engine, Rule of Law will.

8. Ensure Equal Treatment Under Law for All. Vigorously enforce and strengthen the nation’s civil rights laws that guarantee freedom from discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation or physical ability. Reform America’s criminal justice system laws so that justice is no longer systematically dispensed in a way that disadvantages minorities.

In a way, we of the Conservative tradition have allowed such manifest double-speak such as this to become acceptable. Freedom from Arbitrary Power, the true justification of Rule of Law, and the reason for its dilligent application is not explained and so the Planned Outcome becomes the left's easy substitute.

9. Get Money out of Politics. Curtail the vast corrupting influence of corporate campaign contributions, which make Congress beholden to private interests. Enact public campaign financing--we can fund it entirely by closing a single offshore corporate tax loophole!

Again, Property Rights are shattered by the nebulous "Human Rights" just as that substitute was explained by Woodrow Wilson. Why can't the left abide the Constitution? 10. Close the Gap between Rich and Poor Kids at Home. All these words will ring hollow to the world if America does not close the chasm between rich and poor in our own society. We will fully fund Head Start and health insurance for the millions of American children who can't get either. We will invest the money needed to build and nourish schools worthy of this great nation.

Again, the Children are invoked rather than Law or true Enduring Moral Order. Its now getting obvious that little care is really meant for them, just the programs they justify.

TrueMajority’s principles are endorsed by Greenpeace, Rock the Vote, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Peace Action, the National Head Start Association, Global Exchange, The Interfaith Alliance, The Nation magazine, Sojourners, Rainforest Action Network, Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Council of La Raza, and a long and growing list of Americans.

Well, that list of endorsements explains it all.

CBS News has a direct link to the "truemajority.org" web page: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/12/17/opinion/polls/main589167.shtml. Look on the lower-right-hand side--it has a link by which you can send a free fax to urge Congress to investigate the WMD argument by President Bush. Unbelievable! CBS has REALLY tilted left when they provide a direct link to Ben Cohen's political views.
