    I assume you mean to ban every "opposition"? Or I guess by the words you use you are talking about Kandahar and his trolling behaviour.

    I find it simply stunning that McCain won the republican primaries. Just, how in the hell and why?
    Propaganda is one thing..

    Re: Is there a problem with propaganda and brainwashing in the US

    Considering that in America, differing opinions are shown and are available I would say we don't have that big of a problem. You are always going to have one side saying the other side has been, or is being brainwashed, but there is such a breadth of variety of political views in this country I would have to say that any "propoganda" one receives, is because that person has chosen to receive that message rather than another. The people in this country are free to choose what they believe. And they are also free to "sell" their beliefs to others, so long as they don't violate that persons constitutional rights.

    Tell us Maximus, in your opinion, was Obama's election due to the American propoganda machine? Were we hoodwinked, or do you think Americans made the right decision?

    Time will tell.. He sure put some good stuff on in the media to be elected. If he lives up to it he was telling the truth, if he don't it was just propaganda and lies to get elected(like usual Washington politics).

    Ive said it before, lets hope he does not turn out to be another Washington joke.

    If on one hand you say Americans are brainwashed by the government and media then on the other you say Obama was elected because of his "good stuff" on the media, aren't you contradicting yourself?

    How can people be brainwashed in one area and then not in the other. Personally I feel all politicians lie. The people wanted to hear about health care and both candidates talked about health care. In the end we can only hope that the winner has a real plan and won't continue to BS us about "change" and screw up the country.

    So lets get this right. If Obama delivers on his campaign promises, then Americans made the right choice and aren't brainwashed, but if he doesn't deliver than Americans are brainwashed by propoganda. This is like thinking in reverse. Prehaps he was spouting propoganda, something which will be proven over time, but you cannot hold the population responsible for his actual actions after his election. You have to hold that person responsible. All politicians are elected based upon the promise of what they will deliver, especially presidents. Whether they deliver upon those promises, reflects their character(and is probably based more upon the reality of the situation they find themselves in, more than anything else), not the character of the American public.

    I'll answer a poll when it addresses something like "Is there a problem with government and media brainwashing around the world"? As worded it implies that there certainly is no problem with government and media brainwashing in Europe, UK, Australia, hell anywhere but the US. And that, of course, is utter hogwash.
    Welcome Dianna ,
    Brainwashing is everywhere in the world , but Varies from a country to another and depends mainly on people. Am not offending when I say that many americans are "Stereotyped" and are able to believe anything they hear from the media , specially about a thing they hadn't Coexisted with it .
    For example the situations in the middle east , a street-poll was made months ago in Japan saying : What do you thnk of when I say Middle-East ?
    many of them said funny things like : I think of people wearing those big turbans and riding camels , and other said I think of Violence and extremism .. Of course there was a praising answeres , but not that much .
    Actually no one can blame those people cuz they hadnt Coexisted with us.
    As a Middle eastern , I know about 25 relatives and friends who are in Europe and America, so when they get back they tell me about whats really going there, how do people live, how do people think.. So media now isn'nt so important to me, cuz I knew what I wanted to know.
    But I think in America, there is'nt so much Americans who travels outside specially to the Middle-East , so they tends to hear what media says about us, fortunately not all of them believes what media says.

    Problem about democracy is that its difficult to have any plan, at least a long term plan, and usually in democracy you just end up correcting what the other party screwed up..

    Which is why I am for a different political system with one party where all are independent, where one government is democratic and control short term policy while another is a representation of the elite of the nation and set the long term directions.

    Nope, only propaganda to get elected in this case if he turns out to not deliver.

    Bush didn't deliver anything of what he said in elections.... Usually politicians don't, and they are never held accountable.; Which is a shame..
    Bush and the gang, that was brainwashing AND propaganda. The US was brainwashed into accepting him and lured and fooled into electing him a second time, which was so much easier after all the lies and brainwashing of he first period in the white house.

    I think your definition of brainwashing reads simply as "People made a decision I didn't agree with, therefore they must have been brainwashed or fooled". Especially because to you, its only propoganda if Obama does not behave the way you expect him to. Propoganda can still be consider so, even if it delivers what it promises.
