The term "breaking" has been used with horses and slaves.
The document called the Willie Lynch Doctrine was distributed to other plantation owners and politicians in the United States. The documents instructed them on how to transform a man into a slave.
Willie Lynch was mysterious 18th century business man considered to be an expert slave handler.
Lynch developed the process of breaking a slave, a technique for taming and subduing a man to behave like a slave. The process was similar to that of taming a wild horse.
The process made it easier to control the man and his family physically. In the end black women would raise her children to eat out of the slave masters hands, just as a horse does.
If the process was done correctly it would create an endless supply of cheap labor.
The doctrine uses the basic principles of brainwashing and mind control which are still used today in armed conflicts such as in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
Lindsey Graham admitted shortly after the 2008 elections during a private meeting with Sen. Jeff Bingaman that "the decision's already been made to bring Obama down on health care."
This Republican strategy didn't become fully apparent until mid-2009, writes Russ Feingold, when Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina came right out in public and said,
If we're able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.
Feingold has written a book, "While America Sleeps," which will be published at the end of February. The book describes the GOP plan to "break" Obama.
