As we cautiously approach the 2012 United States presidential election, don't become a pushover for falsehood and deception. 

PUSH .... Push Back Hard against those who will lie through their teeth in order to control you, your family and your loved ones. They will steal any hope you have left for dignity and a future.

Excerpt from the 2012 film The Dictator, starring Sacha Baron Cohen as Admiral General Aladeen of the fictional Republic of Wadiya:

"Why are you guys so anti-dictators? Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let one percent (1 %) of the people have all the nation's wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes and bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could torture foreign prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could lie about why you go to war. You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group and no one would complain. You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests. I know this is hard for you Americans to imagine, but please try."
