Sep 16 2014 9:57am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It is not unusual for people to believe the propaganda that their side spews out non-stop with swaggering bravado. That's why propaganda exists. It works time after time, in every part of the world.

Why Sanctions Are Right in the Case of Venezuela

Aug 11 2014 3:07pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post
