9780983240709: Shooting the Bull

In politics, everyone lies. Voters distrust everything they are told by politicians, the media and even their neighbors. Despite universal suspicion of news and opinion makers, very few people understand how political lies are created and thus most folk are unable to dissect spin and discover truth. Shooting the Bull details how all political falsehoods are created, why they work and how to detect them.

Nowhere on the political landscape are more lies told than within the churning bowels of the gun control industry. Fighting America's revolutionary reluctance to submit and the public’s continuing fear of criminals not currently incarcerated in Congress, voters have resisted legislative agendas proposed by The Brady Campaign, Violence Policy Center and the Clinton administration. For decades, significant victories have eluded their ilk, leaving only one strategy with which to sway voters – lying.

Shooting the Bull serves two purposes. First, it catalogs the common canards of politicians and activists. Readers will recognize how they have been psychologically scammed by special interests and deceived by elected sycophants. They will also experience disquieting revelations as they discover forms of fibs they had previously encountered but not recognized. By the end of the book, readers will be infinitely more cynical about politicians and propagandists and be equipped to dissect future electoral effluvium.

The second purpose of Shooting the Bull is to document the deceits peddled by the gun control lobby. Each chapter is devoted to at least one major initiative proffered by anti-gun activists, exposing their falsities through dissection of their motives, methods and inconvenient facts. The art and science of political pretense is illustrated through Senator Dianne Feinstein's "assault weapon" ban, the Million Mom March's campaign to register all guns and license all owners, and Michael Moore's deluded “documentaries”

From the Back Cover:

"Shooting the Bull confirms what the Second Amendment community has known for decades -- that the other side doesn't deal straight. Now every conservative, libertarian, liberal and politically aware independent will see how the masters of American propaganda work."
-- Alan Gottlieb, founder, Second

"It is little wonder that Guy is a card-carrying Libertarian given his beliefs in freedom, choice and power to the citizens. We Libertarians tend to be straight shooters. Guy goes after the other type of politico -- those who congenitally lie to enact their agendas. Shooting the Bull rips the lid off their magic act. Anyone who reads this book will see how they have been hoodwinked in the past, and will recognize the deceit and deception in the future. This book puts the power back in the citizens' hands ... and that is a good start."
-- Wayne Allyn Root, the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee, author of The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts

About the Author:

Guy Smith is a San Francisco-based writer, songwriter, political provo­cateur and resident wag.
 
To say Smith has led an eclectic life is akin to assuming that China is a little overpopulated. In various eras Smith has been a cowboy and a surfer (even on the same day), worked for NASA, held guru status in the computer industry and earned a dime as a marketing strategist. A Southern gent by birth and upbringing, Smith ambled from one coast to another, temporarily halting in Georgia, Florida, Virginia and California.
 
Politically speaking, Smith is a "lib­ertarian with a foreign policy." As a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, he claims to have genetically acquired a predisposition toward freedom and enforcing the same, primarily by dressing down politicians in the process. He is on record telling a former Congressman, "Once elected, you're my employee and my whipping boy."
 
Aside from writing both non-fiction and fiction, Smith contributes Op/Ed pieces to major metropolitan newspapers (San Francisco Chronicle and the Oakland Tribune among others). He has pub­lished hundreds of magazine articles and appears with appalling frequency on talk radio programs. He has been an invited presenter and speaker at multiple Gun Rights Policy Conferences and the Lib­ertarian Party national convention.
 
Smith is also the author of Gun Facts (GunFacts.info), the standard desk reference for debunking gun control myths which NRA News host Cam Edwards referred to as "indispensible." You can keep up with Smith's philosophical and comical observations at GuySmith.org.
