    I've had diaries rescued within only a few hours of posting.

    So others don't have to go back up through my long-winded diary, here's the link to the diary: Defeat the Medicare Lie Easily...with Groceries!

      I didn't know how to link to your username in my update, but I'm so grateful for the exposure you brought to my diary. You expanded my reach beyond my wildest dreams!

      This diary is phenomenal, by the way, but very worrisome. What if people like to be lied to because then they never have to face up to tough choices? What if (inaccurate) stereotypes about the parties make the lies 'feel" right? What happens when people project their own basic honesty onto immoral liars who will say anything to gain or retain power?

      Listening to RNC speeches, I wonder: How can so many wealthy white men be so resentful and vicious when they’re the ones with all the money, power and privilege?

        to link to my name, what's important is that your message got out there and is being seen, shared and used as a tool to combat the lies.

        That said, it's always important to know how to use the tools at your disposal, and since I know you'll be writing more diaries that will inspire others in the future, I think you'll find this diary helpful in learning how to use the formatting features here at DK: Diary Guide to Formatting, Linking, Images, Embedding, and Tables. I have it bookmarked on my computer so that I can reference it when I don't remember how to pull off a particular technique.

        Finally, don't worry, be happy! I don't believe inherently anybody likes or wants to be lied to. Perhaps, there are those who don't like to make tough choices for themselves and look for guidance from people they trust. Your diary is a perfect example of how to combat the lies people are falling victim to by finding another way to explain to them how they are being lied to. Keep up the great work!
