Language matters

For a while, best viagra decease folks on the left were upset that the Republicans were refering to the estate tax as the “death tax.”

They claimed that Republican strategists were trying to manipulate voters by controlling the language.

I finally realized that the reason it pissed the left off so much is that they think creating manipulative euphemisms is their job.

After all, generic cialis how many people would go along with “Affirmative Action” if it were called “Race-based Preferences?”

Or “Social Security,” if it were called “Massive Wealth Transfer from the Young to the Old?”

Of “redeployment,” if it were known as “Abandoning Iraq to an Orgy of Ethnic Cleansing?”
