If you trust a liar, don’t be shocked if he lies to you.
I find that politicians who win are often the ones best at telling voters lies they want to believe. Often, it doesn’t matter if the lies are so outrageous that no logical thinker would believe them. If they are lies that appeal to the listeners, the listeners will swallow them like honey that hides the taste of the cyanide it is mixed with.
President Obama was able to say a lot of lies that the press allowed him to tell. Even when they are proven to be lies, the press and Democrats still support him and even justify the lies. If he had told people the truth about Obamacare at the start, it would have never passed. Since dictators like to use nationalized health care to make the people slaves to the government, those who opposed Obamacare should have used the truth to prevent it from being signed into law. Those who wanted to use the Constitution to defeat Obamacare could have pointed out that Obama is not a natural-born citizen as required by the Constitution. That means that Obama is not eligible to be President, and what he signs into law can’t be enforced since the legitimate President never signed it into law. I’ll use that argument to try and avoid the penalty for not buying health insurance from an exchange. If I’m successful and the general public finds out, look for chaos to ensue. The ones I have written to discuss the illegality of Obamacare who don’t acknowledge that I exist will be begging me to come on so they can attack me before millions of listeners and viewers. It should be fun.
Often, people consider the truth precious. That is why they use it sparingly. Politicians are expected to lie to us. But that doesn’t make them liars. A liar is someone who lies out of force of habit. Many who tells lies find it painful to tell a lie. There is no apparent pain when a liar lies. Did you really expect to keep your doctor, insurance plan, and premium rate just because Obama told you so? Who could believe him when he said he didn’t know there would be so many problems with the website? Information that makes Obamacare look terrible is now being discovered when it may be too late to do away with Obamacare.
What is worse than a liar is someone who attacks the truth in an attempt to make a lie seem like the truth. Satan used that tactic to cause the downfall of man. When he offered the forbidden fruit to Eve as something that would make her as wise as God, she told him the day she ate it that she would die. He told her she wouldn’t die. He meant she wouldn’t die that day. He knew she would eventually die. But he didn’t want her to know that. If she hadn’t eaten the fruit and mankind had never sinned, Adam and Eve might be alive today (barring deadly accidents.)
Another person I have no respect for is someone who makes things worse, who blames others for the problems. Our economy was made worse by Democrats and their Republican allies who passed legislation, like what caused the housing collapse that brought on the last recession many say is still going on. For all I know, Obama, when he was in the Senate, may have voted for disastrous legislation. But he doesn’t want people to find that out, or else he would be partly blamed for the collapse. He is almost like a bully who uses your fist to hit yourself in the face and asks you why you are hitting yourself. Of course, insurance premiums increased too much. When they invest in the private economy to keep premiums from increasing too much, and the economy is bad, you should expect higher premiums. If unemployment were below 3%, and the economy was growing at 10% annually, insurance companies could afford to offer lower premiums. But Obama may have never wanted a good economy, for fear the public would never want to buy into a health care system that was sold as an affordable Volkswagen (but was actually a Mercedes with a Mercedes price tag.)
Among the brain-dead, a half-wit is considered a genius. That is why I often refer to Obama as the half-wit genius. But when the brain-dead defend the half-wit genius and discard the truth to embrace lies, I hope and pray that there are enough people in the nation to prevent the President from getting his way when it is destructive to America. I’m just afraid that the powerful bird of truth will be devoured by liars and end up in the toilet to be flushed away.
