"Flip the Script" and Reframe What "National Security" Means

Why are you for all these foreign wars? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for foreign aid? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for Obamacare? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for raising the minimum wage? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for the Drug War? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for raising the income tax? That hurts our National Security.

Why are you for more government? That hurts our National Security.

So you can see, the above "Flips the script". Rather than arguing from the Constitution or from the philosophy of liberty, we argue from the point of view of "National Security". We can make the "pragmatist" argument that 1) we are concerned about our over all National Security and 2) oh by the way, we protect the constitution and freedom by doing so. (hence, we come off as being PRAGMATICALLY concerned for everyone's overall safety and oh by the way for the constitution and principled. Since most Americans are just pragmatists, we should always focus our examples & explanations from that vantage point).

Now how powerful has been this phrase, this magical Gawd called "National Security"? That answer is found in an excellent article on lew rockwell by Jacob Hornberger here:

So lets all try to "flipping the script" on NeoCons and Big Govt Conservatives and Liberals... and see if we have any success with it. Lets all report back here how it went so we all can learn.

Good luck,

Treg

Now that NSA knows all about

Now that NSA knows all about YOU and knows what's in the CLOUD, the vision is totalitarian. Its one where tyranny is right there, the noose is around your neck, and all the National-Security-State NSS must do is tighten it to control you or squeeze it to kill you. As long as the National-Security State exists, our freedom and our future is in severe danger. The National Security State existence puts our freedom and our national freedom at risk. The future belongs to those who hide from the NSS.

Look, here is Ford talking to Steve Wozniak about putting your personal info on the cloud. See how wrong this is.... Again, the future now belongs to those companies and people who provide us a way to hide from the NSS.
