The BIG Lie (Easy 30 Second Campaign To Get The Truth Out)
I won't waste your time. The November election will decide the fate of the free world, so it is imperative that we get the truth out to the American public. The media won't do it, so we need to go over their heads. This is what makes the internet the great equalizer -- ordinary citizens can spread the truth without having to rely on the media as a proxy.
Email "forwarding" campaigns have been shown to be particularly effective vehicles for spreading information. Therefore, I am asking you to take 30 seconds out of your busy day to send the following email to AT LEAST 10 of your friends (preferably "Independent" and/or "Undecided" voters). Even better would be sending it to your entire address book.
Dear Fellow American Voter,
I am sending you this important email because the November 2004 elections will decide the fate of the free world. Therefore it is important that voters (Democrat, Republican, Independent, or otherwise) have all the relevant information at their disposal before going into the voting booth and making a choice.
Thus far, the Democrats have not given voters a reason to vote FOR them; they have only been giving reasons to vote AGAINST President Bush. Unfortunately, the biggest reason Democrats give to vote against President Bush is based purely on a lie. This fact may shock you: the centerpiece of the Democrats' campaign is blaming the President for the recession, and job loss, that we are now coming out of; this is a lie. In fact, after extensive analysis, we now know that the recession, and job loss, began in 2000 -- when BILL CLINTON was in office. President Bush did not cause the recession and job loss -- BILL CLINTON did. But, you don't need to take my word for it. . .
I am not shocked if you did not know this. The official "scorekeeper" of when recessions begin and end is the congressional Joint Economic Committee (JEC). In December of 2003, and January of 2004, the JEC released its official reports on when the recession and job loss began, and its causes. The JEC report says, in relevant part:
"Newly revised data released by the Commerce Department reveal that the U.S. economy was in decline in the third quarter of 2000, before posting a small increase in the fourth quarter of the year, Vice Chairman Jim Saxton said today. The Commerce Department data show that real GDP fell at a 0.5 percent rate in the third quarter of 2000, pulling down the growth rate for the second half of that year. In the second quarter of 2000, real GDP had risen at a rate of 6.4 percent.
The GDP decline in the third quarter of 2000 is consistent with a host of other economic statistics showing a dramatic economic slowdown after the bursting of the stock market bubble in the first quarter of the year, Saxton said. As the Reuters news service has noted, the figures showed that America was on the brink of recession months earlier than previously thought. This weakness in the second half of 2000 spilled over into 2001 and was aggravated by the terrorist attacks and other shocks to our economic system. "
"Virtually all of the net payroll job loss in recent years is accounted for by the manufacturing sector, and this decline in factory jobs began before the current Administration took office, Vice Chairman Jim Saxton said today. Opponents of the Administration have repeatedly claimed that its policies have caused the decline in manufacturing employment, but fail to explain how this trend began long before any changes in policy took place. The facts show that manufacturing employment reached a cyclical peak in 1998, trending downward thereafter. Consecutive monthly declines in manufacturing employment began in 2000. Moreover, manufacturing employment has been trending downward over a much longer period.
The bursting of the stock market bubble in the first quarter of 2000 soon led to a severe cutback in business investment, much of which consists of capital goods produced in the manufacturing sector, Saxton said. Essentially, investment and manufacturing fell into recession before the rest of the economy. Manufacturing has struggled for several years, with factory employment declining every month since July of 2000. This is an unfortunate trend, but it cannot reasonably be attributed to policies that took place only after it was well under way."
Here are the links to the actual reports, so you can see for yourself:
So, the reality is, despite the Democrats' deceptive, dishonest rhetoric, that Bill Clinton, and his economic policy, is responsible for causing both the massive job loss and the recession. President Bush is innocent -- in fact, it is indisputable that, despite the economic setbacks of 9/11, President Bush is responsible for getting us OUT of our economic hardships - and he deserves CREDIT for that, not defeat. The evidence is the red-hot, 8+% growth in Q3 of 2003, and the fact that the economy CONTINUES to grow.
I'm not telling you who to vote for in November -- all I'm asking is that you look at ALL the facts before you make your critical decision. The better informed voters are, the better the ultimate decision will be. No fair-minded person will dispute that.
So, please, help get the facts to the people. All I'm asking is that you push the FORWARD button on your email browser right now and send this email to ten of your friends (preferably "independent" and/or "undecided" voters). Even better, please forward this email to your entire address book. It will only take you 30 seconds, but it will can make all the difference in the world.
The future of the free world is in your hands in November. Please help to ensure that voters have all the facts, so they can make a wise, educated decision. The power is with the people -- and the PEOPLE, not the politicians, should be responsible for that decision.
Thank you for your time.
