Who are you?

To the editor:
Who is the Polk For Liberty Organization?

I like propaganda, so I visited the website for this group and found interesting quotes/comments by deceased people, well executed art work and persuasive language, but no names to put with the content. I like to know where propaganda comes from.

It helps me to decide how much, if any, I consider true or valid. Along those lines, the Bulletin, in the recent past, decreed that all letters must be signed to indicate the person owning the content. Yet the Bulletin signs its editorials staff.

Who are you? Please let me know who is writing the persuasive opinion. Propaganda, persuasive language, has great value. It has more value if it is signed and has a tangible source. Choose your propaganda carefully. And strongly consider the source.
