History

"A lie told often enough becomes the truth."
-Vladimir Ilych Lenin

"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on."
-President George W. Bush, speaking at a Gridiron Club dinner, Washington, D.C., March 2001

"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly...it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over."
-Joseph Goebbels (http://histclo.com/bio/g/goeb/bg-pro.html)

"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."
-President George W. Bush, speaking at Athena Performing Arts Center at Greece Athena Middle and High School, Greece, New York (http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=109&STORY=/www/story/05-24-2005/0003685801&EDATE= )

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country... corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
-GOP President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
letter to Col. William F. Elkins
