Did you notice at BOs speechSubmitted by Mell_o_Drama on Wed, 12/02/2009 - 03:17
at West Point that he had an audience & no dissent. It wasn't just him, where we were free to dissent b/c there was no public opinion & everybody could draw their own conclusion & dissent & realize this wasn't the change they were led to believe, it was w/ a crowd full of people who wouldn't dissent! So people saw a crowded room w/ no dissent, therefore, the appearance of acceptance by a crowd full of people. I.E. if nobody on tv dissented & everybody accepted, you should too, b/c the people on tv aren't setting the example that you should dissent, b/c they in their free & independent minds aren't dissenting & are very capable of drawing their own conclusion.
