Political JudoSubmitted by Jefferson2 on Thu, 08/18/2011 - 10:51
"Judo or Jūdō (柔道 jūdō?, meaning "gentle way") is a modern martial art and combat sport created in Japan in 1882 by Kano Jigoro. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the object is to either throw or takedown one's opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue one's opponent with a grappling maneuver."
I've been thinking of how we can empower Jesse Benton, and the Paul campaign in general. Anyone who has studied the Martial Art of Judo, knows it is basically taking the opponent's weight, and using it against them.
Some of the best ideas have come from here at DP, and I wanted to pose this to the group to make sure I have the best ideas to pass along.
We have to attack at the heart of the misconceptions they are trying to feed the public about the good Doctor.
What I need are answers that can basically fit on a bumper sticker, or in a headline. They need to be sharp, quick, and concise. Not rhetoric, but REFINED. No manifestos please.
Foreign policy = We are CREATING more enemies than we can KILL.
He can't win = If Ron Paul Doesn't "win", then America is going to lose.
He's a "long shot" = It takes an accurate marksman to make a long shot.
He's too old = Age is revered in countries like China and India, who happen to be doing better than the US right now.
The Israel Question = ?
Iran = ?
You get the idea.
I will take the best misconceptions and answers, and pass them forward. Thanks for the help.
