Provoking fear in order to get someone to get stuff done. What Republicans use to fight terrorism
and what Democrats
use to fight global warming or climate change or whatever they're calling it now.
It's a massive two-way street
and is one of the cheapest ways to get something done.
The Republicans are fearmongering so much that Americans are actually starting
to believe another attack is coming soon.
The Democrats are fearmongering with
global warming to the point where people have just stopped
driving their cars altogether.
