Modern day Pamphleteers, are we insane?

From Merriam-Webster here:

pamphlet

 noun    (Concise Encyclopedia)

Unbound printed publication with a paper cover or no cover. Among the first printed materials, pamphlets were widely used in England, France, and Germany from the early 16th century, often for religious or political propaganda; they sometimes rose to the level of literature or philosophical discourse. In North America, pre-Revolutionary War agitation stimulated extensive pamphleteering; foremost among the writers of political pamphlets was Thomas Paine. By the 20th century, the pamphlet was more often used for information than for controversy.

Definition of PAMPHLETEER

: a writer of pamphlets attacking something or urging a cause

Why do “we” bloggers write?  Utah jokingly commented we are insane.  Are we insane?  If we were to go down to our local courthouse every day, stand on a “soapbox” and yell at people, you might have reason to believe “we are insane.”  We would be lucky to reach a person who would listen, much less understand or care.  If we use technology, we might reach “someone” who is interested in our point of view, who in turn teaches someone else, who teaches someone else, etc.
When I know or understand a historical fact or “point of view” no one else is explaining, I want to share with those who are curious.  Truth seekers.  Not mindless supporters of Woodrow Wilson’s “science of administration.”  We bloggers understand, the “media” outlets are “propaganda tools” for supporters of both the Democratic and Republican Progressive policies.  Bigger Government based upon Wilson’s “science of administration” for every piece of our lives;  Including phone calls, emails, internet shopping, etc.
If one person, one someone, “out there” on their computer gets an idea, shares an idea, gets interested in “why?”, shares or learns information, then it was a successful use of coal powered electrons.  Hopefully more Americans will learn and call “B.S.” on repeated propaganda in social settings.
Are “we bloggers” having success, or are we insane?  Rasmussen’s reports relates:

Only 6% Rate News Media As Very Trustworthy

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Most voters still get their news from television and consider the news reported by the media generally trustworthy.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters say they get most of their news from TV, including 32% who get it from cable news networks and 24% who get it from traditional network news. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that another 25% use the Internet as their main source of news, while only 10% still rely on print newspapers. Seven percent (7%) get most of their news from radio. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Fifty-six percent (56%) of all voters regard the news reported by the media as at least somewhat trustworthy, but that includes just six percent who think it is Very Trustworthy.Forty-two percent (42%) don’t trust the news media, with 12% who believe the news it reports is Not At All Trustworthy.  

Last September, as the final stretch of the presidential race heated up, 40% of American Adults said the Internet was the best way to get news and information in today’s world, while 37% viewed television that way. Nine percent (9%) rated radio as the best source, and seven percent (7%) chose print newspapers. TV broadcast news was considered the most reliable, followed by the Internet and newspapers.

Rasmussen divides the questions and tabulations into “American Adults”, “all voters”, and “likely voters”.

We modern pamphleteers are reaching “American Adults” better than television.  Great!  So where do things go wrong?  Self identified “all Voters” and “likely voters” group’s numbers fall in favor for TV.  Who educated them?  The “common core” schools.  “Mouths open and minds closed” for their daily dose of propaganda.  Here they are:

Progressive voters

I just discovered something I didn’t expect.  We pamphleteers are reaching more of the American People than T.V. Internet numbers will continue to grow with the admission the media is the propaganda machine of the Federal Government. This is a great start.  Is this why the various “Tea Parties” blossomed under the withering fire from the Democrats, the media, and the IRS?

All Americans!  Get off your Arse and VOTE !  VOTE ! , VOTE !  Get involved.  Go to “town hall” meetings and ask polite, pointed questions.  Don’t get mad, get even !  There is nothing worse for a politician than being embarrassed in public.  Especially with phone videos and instant youtube upload.  Get your friends and neighbors informed, involved, and VOTING !  Should be easy if they have children.

If the illegal aliens who “only forged 2 passports” become citizens“, as Rubio supports, you can be sure they will vote for more Government food stamps, and Wilson “administration science“.

If all Americans vote, and a substantial number vote in a precinct, where ZERO votes are reported and counted, the Criminals can be held accountable for voter fraud with public outcry.

If all Americans vote, Constitutional respecting, family respecting, “our Creator” respecting candidates will get involved.  Why should “good Americans” get involved and run for public office if “all Americans” are gonna sit on their arse, while the Progressive Republicans and Democrats, “chew them up and spit them out” in the Media Propaganda Machine?

I learned something today.  That learning gives me a little renewed hope.  Renewed hope and faith is why “we” do this.  “I ain’t insane” and neither are “we pamphleteers”.  Thanks for the forum Utah.

God bless Americans, and liberty’s supporters.

  1. Bloggers = Modern Pamphleteers……….. :- ))

    And Lindsey Graham wants them / us shut down !!!…..Just like a good Republican Should right ??…….Graham and Rubio >> Facist Brothers from a Different mother.

  2. “40% of American Adults said the Internet was the best way to get news and information in today’s world, while 37% viewed television that way.” But what % of that internet content consists of mainstream B.S.?

    I believe in the theory if six degrees of separation, but first we gotta sell something people are willing to buy. Selling a new or refurbished product is hard work. 🙂

    • Steve,
      When “selling”, if you have a proven, successful, “product”, the “product sells itself”.

      We aren’t “selling”: We are EDUCATING the masses of “all the options”.

      Merely opening eyes and surveying the options… and TRUTH.

      Oops, almost forgot, if “they are on the internet”, then at least the American Adults are in the venue where they can find or stumble across the truth. And I would hazard to say, if those who believe they get reality from TV, wouldn’t say they get their news from the internet and distrust the “media” as the media is parroting the Progressive Marxists/Democrats propaganda.
