Political Doublespeak

As the race for Govenor of Michigan heats up I am reminded of George Orwell’s first used the word “doublespeak” in his famous novel “1984.” It is defined as words “deliberately constructed for political purposes”.

Democrates cry out about DeVos creating jobs in China and that he contributed millions to lobby Congress for International trade agreements that hurt the U.S.

The right wing has their own agenda with reports of Gov. Granholm’s reponsibility of losing 109,000 jobs to outsourcing and her refusal to end the Single Business Tax, (SBT), among other allegations.

Which way do I vote? Which party is telling the truth? Whom do I believe? Well I will try to clear a path for you. Remember this little story when you go to the polls, k?

A little girl asked her mother, Mommy, do all fairy tales begin with, “Once upon a time?”
No she answered, some begin with, “If elected I promise. . .”

    I’ve all but given up on our elected officials. Frankly, it doesn’t even matter who is in office anymore – they’re all pandering liars. I’m only going to the polls to vote in the referendums and Yes/No voter issues (such as the MCRI).

    For all the elected positions, I’m writing in Chester Cheetah to show my support for the Cheetos Party.
