Discussion:  Misleading Political Terms

Fact:  Our nation has been officially in business since 1776.  To date, there has never been a law passed, which was upheld in court, which prohibited misleading advertising by and on behalf of politicians.

Choose a statesman, not a politician

Choose a statesman, not a politician

Misleading political terms are used everywhere.  The intent is to deceive to low information voters.  Politicians know that low information voters are easy to deceive.  The principle they use is to repeat a lie so often that the naive person believes it.

The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success. - Source: "War Propaganda", in volume 1, chapter 6 of Mein Kampf (1925), by Adolf Hitler. "If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself."

This is the way the human mind works. This is why propaganda works. This is also why a lie should not join the ranks of free speech unless labeled as exactly what it is, a lie.

Suggested Solution - Pass an integrity in advertising disclosure which permits a "Seal of Integrity" to be displayed if:

  • the ad was peer reviewed and approved by a non partisan agency
  • the ad was certified as accurate and not misleading by a non partisan agency
  • Ads can still be run without a seal of integrity

Why hasn't this not been done yet?

As I understand politics, politicians want to be able to deceive low information voters.  They know they cannot deceive high information voters.  High information voters spot deceptive ads right away and reject them.  The get irritated when they see they.  The vast majority of voters are low information voters.

As a consequence, many high information voters do not vote or only vote part of a ballot.  They leave the balance of the ballot blank.  Many eligible high information voters are not registered for one primary reason.  "They do not want to voter for the lessor of two evils."  That is why when all the candidates lie, these folks do not vote.  Many will not register at all.  Those who you can pressure to register will not show up at the polls.  Politicians who lie want to keep it that way.  Statesmen want full disclosure.

Statesmen do not sling mud. Don't fall for misleading political terms.

Statesmen do not sling mud. Don't fall for misleading political terms.

This means that politics are corrupted in ways that can be remedied.  Think of the situation we have.  Most Statesmen will not run for office because they hate the mudslinging.  Many high information voters refuse to vote when they see mudslinging.  It is time for a change and that is part of what this campaign is about.  Stay tuned as we roll out our plans to attract high information voters who hate mudslinging.  We know where they are and how to reach them.  It takes time and funding to reach them and that is why we must ask for your regular financial help.

Please join the Isaacson Army and chip in $5, $10, $20 or more per month, between now and the end of the campaign.  What you will get for your investment is a candidate who will tell the truth and not sling mud.  You will also get all of the following:

  • Actual accountability
  • Easy communication between you and your candidate, Congressman-elect and later Congressman.
  • You will get regular reports which include a current status report on every issue before Congress.
  • You will get simple actions you can take to influence other members of Congress and the Senate, as well as the president.
  • You will get contact information, if we have it, for everyone who stands against integrity in the public venue.
  • You will get contact information for people and organizations who fail to cover issues you believe in so you can help influence them or call them out.
  • You will get contact information for staff members, paid and volunteer, who are in charge of specific issues.

This is your Congressional Office and Steve Isaacson will treat it that way.  We are here to serve you, not rule over you.  That is a huge difference.  The slicksters in politics deceive voters but serve special interests.  That is what puts the bread in the side pockets and the power behind the closed doors.  Click here to register to vote.  Become a site member so we can keep you up to date and can get special direct access to get your personal concerns dealt with.

Understanding Misleading Political Terms

Written by Steve Isaacson; Edited by Ron Bartels

Fact:  Many politicians do not say what they mean, nor do the mean what they say.

Why is it that so many people do not vote?  In particular, why is it that the largest single voting block of eligible, but unregistered, voters do not participate at the polls?
