I have to shudder whenever I hear someone use the tired, worn-out, and deceptive cliché “all politicians lie.” That’s a classic example of lying with the truth. Saying that all politicians lie is like saying that all NBA players are tall. But if height were lies, the GOP would be the Manute Bol’s and Yao Ming’s of Congress while the Democrats would be the Muggsy Bouges’s and Spud Webb’s!
Sure, politicians on both sides of the isle lie as individuals about some scandal or fraud, but the GOP lies in unity as a PARTY. Their entire existence depends on weaving a web of lies to keep the Conservative Nation living in a false reality, and thus continue their voting for Republicans. There are only two kinds of Republican voters in America, the very few wealthy and powerful deceivers, and the very many well-meaning, but deceived voters.
It would not surprise me to learn that the secret motto of the GOP was “If at first you don’t deceive, lie, lie again!” I know there are a lot of government haters out there, but the only thing wrong with the government is that those who hate the government keep electing Republicans who screw up the government! It’s all controlled by the wealthy and powerful, This is not jealousy talking. Don’t hate the wealthy for having made it up the ladder of success, hate them for doing everything they can to pull that ladder up behind them so no one else can follow.
