And, besides these general lies, we are deliberately deluded by specific lies such as "the Iranian Special Forces attack on the compounds in Benghazi was a response to a video" or "There is not a smidgeon of political corruption in the IRS" or "Republicans are responsible for the gridlock in Congress" (when the Democrat Senate is sitting on over 300 bills sent them by the Republican House).
Why do our elected servants continuously and intentionally lie to us? The answer is deceptively simple: they can’t help it!
The word LIBERAL is an acronym for "Lying, Intolerant, Bigoted, Egotistical, Racist Arrogant, and Lying." Liberalism begins and ends with lying. Lying is its MO and its raison d’etre. It literally cannot exist without lying because the very assumptions on which it is based are untrue.
Liberals have no standard of veracity. They live in a world where facts are conditional and the only absolutes are lust and hatred. Besides, truths are universally known and accepted, and hence they are useless in inciting mob passions. You need a good lie or three to stir people up – and to suppress the truth when it’s inconvenient.
Liberals are very much aware that lies are useful and often multipurpose tools. The lie that all whites are racists, for example, is used to instill guilt in whites, to incite resentment in blacks, and to justify obscene expenditures of taxpayer dollars to address this critical non-problem. The lie, in fact, is the only weapon in the liberal arsenal. They lie to launch an initiative, they lie to beat back common sense opposition to it , and they lie when it fails. They have no alternative strategy to lying. It’s all they have – and, unfortunately, it is usually enough.
Lies are extremely hard to argue against. People don’t find the truth nearly as interesting as a juicy lie, which is why electoral campaigns always degenerate to an exercise in name calling. I won’t dwell on the negative implications of that fact for the practice of democracy, since my purpose here is to examine ways to combat the lie.
We republicans are constrained by our respect for the truth from meeting lies with lies, yet the truth can be a meager weapon against a barrage of well researched and well timed lies. One strategy is the use of counter truths. When Senator John Kerry, during the 2004 presidential campaign, lied openly about his experiences as a swift boat commander in Vietnam, G. W. Bush responded with testimonies from ex-sailors who had served under Kerry calling the Senator a liar. The technique is simple: isolate the lie, disprove it, and promulgate the disproof widely.
Another approach is what I call the embellished truth. This is not lying; it is selective emphasis. It’s similar to writing a resume. If you’re applying to a plastic injection molding company, you write a resume emphasizing your experience in injection molding. You mention your plastic extrusion experience only as it relates to your familiarity with plastic materials, and you don’t mention at all the fact that you worked as an auto mechanic when you were in college.
Similarly, when Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a Soros-funded cabal of Democrats for "abuse of executive power" in vetoing funds to a Democrat DA who had been convicted and had served time for driving while intoxicated, Governor Perry said nothing about why he vetoed the funds. He simply pointed out the fact that the Texas Constitution gives the Governor of Texas the right to veto any funding without having to explain to anyone his reasons for doing so.
