Lies, Lies, Lies

In following politics I have a problem with how people from both sides use the word lie to push their agenda. To me it signals that the American public reacts to liars. We don’t like them. Consequently, we like to dub politicians as liars. The problem I have with this phenomenon is that most of the time when I hear about someone telling a lie it is far from the truth. Because of this I hold the person telling us someone is a liar as the liar.

Politicians make promises to get votes. Some of them are telling outright lies with no intention of keeping those promises after elected. Many others make the promises and set goals to achieve them, but do not succeed. For example, Trump campaigned on the promise that the first thing he would do is to repeal and replace Obama Care. When sworn in, and actually seeing the agenda before him he was most likely overwhelmed. Repealing Obama Care was not the number one thing on his agenda for a couple of reasons. One of them being that he couldn’t do the repeal, it is the job of Congress to repeal laws. That took the promise out of his control. Yet, I have some dingbat liberal friends who call him a liar because he didn’t repeal and replace. It took him a few weeks longer to make it happen, but he is branded forever as a liar because he didn’t deliver exactly as promised.

I can make a list of promises made, and then failed that are fueling the liar myth, but I won’t bore you with it, I think my analogy above makes my point. The problem is that making a big deal about these situations stamps the title of “LIAR” across a person’s forehead, and liar is one trait that liberals love to use as much as the word racist. I had a talk with a forty something young man recently who I know voted for Trump. He was beginning to question Trump’s veracity as leader. I asked him why, and he stated that he was concerned that Trump lies a lot. That is why I have stopped watching network news and cable news. The fair and balanced channel is also guilty of promoting the lie word. The media war against Trump is having an effect on the gullible.

I totally support Trump’s battle against the fake news media. Yes, the news has a First Amendment right to write what it likes, but it puts a huge onus on We the People to separate the truth from the real lies. The moral of this story is don’t believe everything you hear from the media sources, the pundits, or the opposing politicians without first researching the truth.
