We have a shot at a "Hail Mary" still. We need to be ready when the time comes. I'd like to modify a cliche for our efforts:
There are no liberals in foxholes.
When things get bad enough, people will be open to what L Ron Hubbard calls "dianetic moments." (I do NOT care for L Ron or his philosophy at all, but he accurately described a phenomenon.)
Cyril, if you have the time, I encourage you to take the free, online hypnosis course from http://www.hypnosis.edu/
If you pay CLOSE attention, you will be taught how to spot people who are ripe for "suggestion." I was taking the course at the same time I was learning about Ron Paul and 9-11. It was quite synergistic, and I still believe that a team of liberty loving anti-hypnotists would be able to sway masses of people.
Do you even know what "Bewitched" was? A TV show? (Ironically, one that good Christian families all across the country watched for decades, probably still on in reruns.) The witches always had to know exactly what the spell was to break it. There's a nugget of truth there.
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
