      It's aimed at the wrong people.

      We know he's lying. But a lot of voters will think he's telling the truth. All the snark in the world on this blog won't change that.

      Thompson and those like him aren't jokes. They're dangers.

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

          While you make jokes, he's on TV telling Americans that their taxes are going up.

          You think no one will believe him? Dream on.

        ...what do you propose to counter the bullshit the (dis)Honorable Mr. Thompson is slinging?

          Send a letter to your local paper.

          Email the MSM and point out the distortions.

          Have facts ready to refute the deliberately crafted emails pitching these lies that will be sent you by your friends and neighbors.

          (I just refuted two very ugly smears against Muslims.)

          Write your own Senator pointing out the lies.

          Do something besides sit around posting snark on this blog.

          This is only the beginning. This is what the GOP is going to use as their major attack on Democrats until November.
