Beware: During this heated election season, liberal self-styled ‘public interest’ organizations might be trying to fool you. Even though they advance larger government, more taxes, pro-abortion policies and the liberal candidates that support them, you can't always tell by their ads. Many of these groups even have neutral our civic oriented sounding names. And because they sound neutral, their messages are often effective at reaching new voters who don't recognize the hidden agendas.

And through it all, our children—the future voters— are watching.

Daily tracking polls (where biased samples determine the outcome) and TV “political analysts” (passed off an unbiased voices in spite of thinly disguised sympathies) wield disproportionate influence over independent voters—a scary thought, given the close Presidential race.

The Obama administration has even gone so far as to try and intimidate the Gallup poll organization, and has now joined a federal lawsuit against Gallup, instigated by a former Democratic operative.

More insidious than the Obama administration’s overt political pressure is the subtle influence of neutral-sounding civic groups.
