Your Phrases

Leave your words and phrases in the comment box below.

These words and phrases are for everyone;  not just our leaders.   There are many undecided voters,  and if you are reading this you must be an opinion leader.   Never repeat the words or phrases Republicans use; always re-frame with yours.  Remember facts bounce off effective frames, so ignore their frames and re-frame with yours. Then use facts to reinforce your frames.  For instance, if they say: “Don’t tax  job creators” you say:  “Your businesses use our courts, highways, internet, police , fire, military etc.  These things are not free, and if the millionaires don’t pay their fair share of taxes then we either go into debt or the tax burden get shifted to the middle class.  They are tax shifters, or tax shirkers, or (better word/phrase needed here).”

Stand up!! Don’t let Grover Norquist,   Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck frame the issues without a fight!

    “Mass flow up economics” To counter the utterly false notion of “trickle down economics” that is used to justify giving money to those who already have it in the hopes that it will eventually trickle down to those who really need it. When you give someone or a company money, they can hold onto a large percentage of it because they can. If you gave that money to poor or struggling people and businesses they would spend all of it because they have to. This way %100 of the investment will be used to jump start our economy. People will spend, demand will rise and jobs will be created to fill this demand.
