Quote - This has always been so. Facts don't sway an ignorant audience, emotions do, and Joe knows this better than anyone. Like I said before, we can learn from this.
But we don't learn from it, wether it is in electing President's, other Government Officials, or influencing gun control debates. We state facts that should be enough to sway the majority of intelligent people, but they have learned how to effectively play on emotions and the hell with the facts, which unfortunately is so much more effective on our greater population that just doesn't take time to understand, or care about the facts. Ask the average person how they feel about their taxes going up this year. They bought into the emotion of the President (Tax the rich), and now they are paying for it.
And the frustrations continue.....
