Just found a link to a powerpoint presention by the GOP on its marketing strategy for the coming election campaigns.
It’s all about making people afraid, and cozying up to donors to get them to give money, and we knew that, but the blatant marketing presentation, considered as a “What’s the best way to win?” not “What’s best for the country?” is just kind of dispiriting to see.
No, I don’t think the democrats are a lot better, if at all. Allpoliticians, these days, make public pronouncements that are calculated to make us approve of them, never mind how they really feel, or believe, or ultimately govern. This is not cynicism, it is reality.
It really IS all about winning, not doing what’s best for the country.
Still, sad to see it spelled out quite so blatantly as in this presentation. We’re all just fish to be fried.
