YOU CAN SAY PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. BUT YOU'D BETTER NOT BELIEVE IT | 2002-01-19

The media say "People make the difference." But the media will lynch anybody who really believes that.

In a melting pot, people mean nothing. According to our ruling faith, you can throw any population into a country and it will work fine if you repeat the right liberal words.

The one thing you have to believe today is that America has nothing to do with its people. You could bring in any third world population and give them the Declaration of Independence and good attitudes and they would have freedom and prosperity.

With the right words, any population can be as American as you and me. Believe that or wait for the lynch mob to come for you.

Conservatives say that the Bible and Family Values are What America Is All About. Liberals say What America Is All About is liberal programs.

But both agree that WORDS are everything.

No Wordist wants the people to matter.

So people can't matter at all.

In the real world if you base policy on ANY form of Wordism, it will never work.

But who cares?

No one dares assume that liberals and theologues and other Wordists are talking nonsense just because they always have talked nonsense.
