Leaders who lie

Advertisement

What do you do if the highest elected officials in your country lie and then lie again?

This was a very successful technique used in the last century in a country to lead the masses. It too, involved the restructuring of the country’s constitution. It was done using propaganda, disinformation and control (or support) from the media. It was not done publishing books. It was done delivering speeches to connect with the audience.

One of the major propaganda tasks was the disruption of the current state of affairs and the permeation of the state of affairs with a new doctrine. In this process, the masses were never told where the leader actually planned to take them. The masses were not to be frightened but reassured that all proposals are for their good.

The leader with these lies from the last century stated, “How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.” This leader was Adolf Hitler.

Never in our history have we had a president of the United States who lies repeatedly. He is supported in perpetuating those lies by the majority of the media and the Democratic Party. We are now experiencing the lies and propaganda of Obamacare.

In one speech, President Obama stated he would cut the deficit in half. There was no reduction in the national debt. He has compiled more debt than all previous presidents combined.

I was a Democrat for decades until I realized the party of JFK had been taken over by the socialists, and implements Communist agendas. It is a party that government knows best, not the individual. It supports about every liberal agenda imaginable, subverts the U.S. Constitution, and spends without conscience.

Bills for financing the government, according to the Constitution, originate in the House of Representatives. This process is now controlled by President Obama. Did he not take an oath to “support the Constitution?” Any Republican would have been impeached long ago.

President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi remind me of something Mark Twain might say: Suppose you were an idiot. Suppose you were a Democrat. But then I repeat myself.

Perhaps, the ones who are the idiots are the “old boy” Senate Republicans. The budget fight was over the Constitution. It lost. These “old boy” Republicans passed the baton (their responsibilities in the Constitution) to President Obama. That is why Harry Reid is smiling.

"Never in our history have we had a president of the United States who lies repeatedly."To be bipartisan, what about Nixon & Clinton. Nixon invented "I misspoke myself." "I am not a crook" was a lie. " He resigned when he was days from virtually sure conviction in the Senate after impeachment. Clinton's "I did not have sex with that woman" was a lie.

Candidates have made campaign promises throughout out history that were not kept. It is undoubtedly fair to say that every President has made promises in the campaign or in office that were not kept. Sometimes promises are cynically made and sometimes the President really wants to keep his promise but is unable to for a variety of reasons.

Your letter proves two things: (1) You despise President Obama, and (2) You champion the Tea Party faction that the majority of American public and world opinion blame for really wrecking the Constitution and nearly wrecking the U.S. and world economy. Polls show that the public blames Congress in general and the Tea Party in particular for taking us to the brink.

Your letter has good insight.

On a CNN interview with HHS Sebelius over this website failure: "A lot of Americans don't know how to budget for insurance".

How would you know what to budget for and what has the majority of the population been doing in the past but budget their lives? That's one thing this Administration does not know how to do and that is to follow a budget. After 5 years and still on a downhill run with no end in sight.
