    And if all else fails, use the old reverse garble technique. Post something that has a semblance of logic in it, but that is so garbled it`s difficult to even see which side of the debate you`re advocating, making it impossible to disagree with you. E.g.,

    "abortion is like shooting a deer, it tasty, but if you don`t have a permit, it wrong, so get a permit"

    Then if some misguided fool tries to dissect what you were saying to disagree with it and present their own beliefs, insist that you were advocating the same position they`re trying to convince you is right. They`ll immediately begin to question their own beliefs if someone as unclear as you thinks they`re right.

    If you ever wanted to know why some of the more conservative people on this site upset you so much, it is more than likely because they use Karl Rove`s Tactics for Effective Conservative Blogging. Once you learn to recognize these scummy techniques you can learn to ignore them.

    Half the people here already know and utilize this. I`m not saying it`s a repost, but people here act like it is (in that they follow it).

    markust: Never read that article, or what ever it is. It`s easy to argue with liberals, just tell the truth, it drives them crazy because they can`t remember half their lies.

    vv @dirtysteve: The liberals over here ALL think alike. They only believe what the MSM tells them. Pointing out things like "facts" drives them into a hate-frenzy since OBVIOUSLY the conservatives cannot possibly be `correct` about anything, the MSM said so!

    The unwritten rule of Karl Rove`s teaching: Deny you received the chain email. 5Cats & CrakrJak, I recognize different techniques from his tips in pretty much every comment you make.

    "The liberals over here ALL think alike. They only believe what the MSM tells them. Pointing out things like "facts" drives them into a hate-frenzy since OBVIOUSLY the conservatives cannot possibly be `correct` about anything, the MSM said so!"

    The `MSM` priority is to keep the populace divided amongst political lines. This was the Roman`s favorite method of non-aggressive imperial expansion. The MSM and government`s, worst fear is that we`ll put aside our differences, unite, and revolt. And we should because both sides seem to be fully aware of how corrupt and inept our government is, yet continue to blame the opposing side for it.

    Point being, if you use these terms people keep throwing around, republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, on a daily basis then you have wholeheartedly bought into their bullpoo.
