Round Earth or flat – How simple is it?

A question was posed recently by a news reporter to the top two Progressive and Republican political strategists:

“The Earth; is it flat or is it round?”

The Progressive went right into the facts and figures of thousands of years of historical evidence of how the Earth is round. He named explorers from the Chinese to the Italians to the Vikings.

He continued with his opinion that the people who support the flat Earth idea are not only ignorant of the facts, they are puppets of Fox News, are also global warming deniers, and are involved in a vast corporate conspiracy.

The Republican political strategist stood up and said, “It doesn’t really matter; I could sell it either way.”

The Republican/Tea Party candidates have embarked upon a strategy to speak only to the local Fox political channel and no one else. Because Fox doesn’t ask hard questions, candidates don’t share their real opinions, thus ignoring the real issues, which makes it easier for Fox to sell their version of the aforementioned political strategist’s voodoo either way.

Voters, beware of candidates who practice deceit!
