The single most successful tool of the conservative movement has been the deployment of dozens and dozens of  straw man arguments against liberal positions. According to FallacyFiles a straw man argument is an attack of a position that is not held by the opponent.

Imagine a fight in which one of the combatants sets up a man of straw, attacks it, then proclaims victory. All the while, the real opponent stands by untouched.

The Roundtable will be a forum to set the record straight.
