The Enthymeme

When you next hear a republican mention "a plan for victory" in Iraq your sexy professor pal Phineas (I'm not sure about the other two perhaps they will agree with me) wants you to think about it. I mean really think about it. Did that republican actually offer up a "plan" or just say "a plan for victory". Because if they did not offer up a plan they are allowing you to interject your own premise for victory. It's a rhetorical device and it is what Aristotle thought to be his most important contribution to society; the enthymeme.

When a republican says "a plan for victory" they aren't going to give you their plan "We will kill as many people as possible and win all that juicy oil" they are allowing you to just add what every you want into that "plan". It works to their advantage because now you've created the belief they have a plan when in actuallity they don't have any plan at all. I mean have they had a plan at all this whole time other than we're going to be greets as liberators and showered with chocolate and roses? No they have been winging it the whole time what makes you think they have any plan at all?

So when the midterm elections heat up remember think critically (and not with just republicans but with democrats too they are both the powers of the status quo).

Critical thinking is not always the best avenue when dealing with politics. This country was founded by great leaders who submitted to God. You should be willing to submit to your leaders, especially the ones who recognize God as our ultimate leader. We live in the greatest country in the world. We are blessed with choices. Why do you feel as if we should question our leaders? We elect them, and I believe they generally have our best interests in mind. Be more positive! We live in a wonderful country. God bless American, and God bless you!

BEDAZZLED? Do you mean misled? Why would I try to mislead you? I am just offering another perspective. Your opinion is respected, and I understand your points. Why would you think that I would BEDAZZLE or mislead you? I merely wanted to influence you to be more positive. You seem to forget that we are blessed and very fortunate to be Americans.
