Why do a vast majority of the American public continue to fall for the constant lies coming out of Washington?What is it that they just don’t see?Time and time again the rug is pulled out from under them and they still fall for the same old “bait and switch”.Politicians know it and now they have no qualms about continuing the lies even after we know they are lies!
I remember a time when at least they tried to cover it up, (Richard Nixon), or they came clean after they were caught, (Bill Clinton).Today however, they fabricate a lie in order to further their political agendas and then after they are exposed, they continue to spout the same lie as though it were the truth!Are we all crazy?Am I living in The Twilight Zone???
I know I heard Barack Obama say time and time again not to worry about Obamacare.“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor…period. If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan…period.”
That came through pretty clear to me and the message stayed the same for the last three or more years. He looked the American people in the eye and gave them his word. If he had just said it once maybe I could have been mistaken or thought that perhaps he misspoke, but I heard it dozens of times especially during the last Presidential campaign.
Now this colossal whopper has smacked people right in the face.They know what he said, and even if they thought that they heard wrong, they can go to the internet, television, radio, or the print media to find it again and again and again just to assure themselves that they had heard right.
I guess it just doesn’t matter anymore.The Democrats in Washington believe that the end justifies the means. This phrase, originating from Niccolo Machiavelli's book "The Prince", is interpreted by some to mean doing anything whatsoever that is required to get the result you want, regardless of the methods used. It does not matter whether these methods are legal or illegal, fair or foul, kind or cruel, truth or lies, democratic or dictatorial, good or evil.
All that matters is that they win because they believe they are morally superior to the rest of us and we are just too stupid to understand. No matter who it hurts, no matter who it destroys, if their agenda is advanced it was worth it because they know best.
All politicians lie.
