Does Lying Matter?

Does Lying Matter?
By Ron Boat

Let’s face it. We all lie. But telling your wife she doesn’t look fat in a dress or expressing your overwhelming love of that ugly new Hawaiian shirt your husband bought doesn’t exactly rock the world’s economies and dismantle political structures.

When it does matter is when you’re the leader of a country – the world’s once most powerful country – and your words have meaning that others depend and react on. You’re elected, expected, and sometimes rejected for the truths you’re to impart to the citizens and other world leaders.

This posting will be short and to the point because its message is simple. We’re being lied to daily. And it DOES matter. It erodes the foundation of our trust in government- and people. It creates and fosters an environment of doubt, declining confidence and leads to lives built on facts not in evidence; Half-truths and deceptions that are for self-purpose promotion or meant to destroy. Deliberate misleading actions and words spewed forth to create, justify, or further chaos, confusion and to direct the masses toward a more controlled existence and government imposed dependency.

The following lies are short, clear and telling. For if we cannot see what’s being done to this country through our own eyes of truth, if we can’t perceive that destructive force which is deliberately, constantly, sometimes delicately executed against us, then we will surely follow the great civilizations of the past who have faded into thin pages of old textbooks and placed on the shelves of history to be ignored or forgotten.

This president and his administration’s own words articulate profoundly the truths they attempted to falsely promote, and failed to deliver for whatever nefarious reasons.

On healthcare:

*Can you keep your own doctor? – NO
*Can you keep you old health plan? – NO
*Will your premiums go down? – NO
*Is this good for American businesses? – NO
*Will it create jobs? – NO
*Does the ACA reduce gov’t spending on healthcare? - NO
*Are we avoiding the dreaded “single payer” healthcare system? – NO
*Were healthcare hearings open and on CSPAN as promised? – NO
*Was a bi-partisan effort encouraged, even allowed on ACA development? – NO
*Is the ACA going to cost ONLY $750 billion and not trillions? – NO
*Are citizens equal, receiving the same considerations as donors and big business? – NO
*Is ACA a premium and NOT a tax? - NO

On the debt, deficit and taxes:

*Did the deficit get reduced by half in 4 years? – NO
*Will the ACA not add “one dime” to the deficit? – NO
*Are people making less than $250,000 avoiding tax increases? – NO
*Has this administration reduced the size of gov’t as promised? – NO
*Has this administration reduced poverty in the U.S.? – NO
*Did we really avoid a “tax” with ACA as promised by the president? – NO
*Did we answer the call of the “shovel ready jobs” as promised? - NO

On running his administration:

*Is this the most transparent administration ever? – NO
*Did lobbyist get banned from influence in the White House? – NO
*Were lobbyists barred from serving in this administration? - NO
*Was lobbyist money eliminated from his campaign? – NO
*Has this administration enforced equal pay for women in their own ranks? – NO
*As the White House states, did Romney’s policies cause the cancer death of a woman? - NO
*Was Benghazi’s tragedy cause by the presence of a video? – NO
*Was there a protest in Benghazi as promoted by the White House? - NO
*Was the administration engaged in finding the truths around Benghazi? – NO
*Is the administration meeting their commitments to providing witnesses and help in the Benghazi matter as they stated? – NO
*Has this administration adhered to its statements of creating jobs? – NO
*Has this administration reduced the debt through its larger taxes and “increased efficiencies?” – NO
*Has this administration reduced food stamp dependency? – NO
*Is the country better off now than four years ago? – NO

National Debt

2009: 10.6 Trillion
Now: 16.9 Trillion

Food Stamps
2009: 32.2 million people enrolled
Now: 47.7 million people enrolled

Real Unemployment

Median Household Income
2009: $54,983
Now: $50,017

Gas Prices
2009: $1.85
Now: $3.80

*Did the president put on his “comfortable shoes and walk the picket line” for union rights instead of ignoring their pleas for help? – NO
*Did the president fulfill his promise to created hundreds of thousands of “green” jobs through billions in loans and grants? – NO
*As he promised, was this president “held accountable” for his actions and decisions? – NO
*As promised, has this president helped to heal the racial divide separating this country? – NO

Has this president, and his tax cheating, lying, socialist, admitted Communist group of 60’s radical appointees and associates really advanced this country to its finest days, or attempted to bring her to her knees as a servant of the world’s socialist doctrines and failed economic policies for the good of a few power elites seeking long term benefits and control….. ?

I guess one could say “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Dear Patriots;

Dear Patriots;
William G Burmer

What will be our price for Liberty and Freedom?
As we have observed the goings on in the United States Congress and the Senate the past few months in particular; I am personally awed by the arrogance, and pomposity publically displayed by those elected officials. They no longer try to hide the fact that they have total disregard for Our Constitution (Law) but proudly express in word and dead their total disdain for it.
They, with the exception of a handful , have put aside the real definition of , or are ignorant of the difference between Liberty and Freedom and appear to Prefer personal Power and Financial gain over the onus of their office.
Paraphrasing John Locke Liberty consists of being free from the whimsical, uncertain, and arbitrary will of others and constrained only by the Constitutional powers established effective 17 September 1787.
Freedom on the other hand is expressed as being subject to the laws of Nature or God. The ability to function as we desire so long as what we do does no harm to others, or vice versa. Our freedom is thus constrained only by laws common to everyone in society and Established Constitutional government, established, I say, by We the People.
One would believe with a firm resolve, understanding, and respect for these two terms our lawmakers in Government would have no problem distinguishing right from wrong, what is Lawful or unlawful. However, Power or unrighteous dominion, and Money have polluted what was once pure and undefiled. Sadly a majority, like Judas, have sold their souls for a handful of coins, and as Pharaoh for power.
As Judas betrayed Jesus, our lawmakers have betrayed our Country. Judas hung himself, was buried in potter's field and forgotten. Pharaoh like Obama and the law makers, to spite all the signs about him (them) continued to do evil unto the people. His fate was reconciled unto the Lord. So let it be with our present crop of leaders in the DC.
We the people must defeat this evil at the voting booths throughout our Nation. Let your voices be heard loud and clear, as Patrick Henry stated so eloquently " Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

Mr President; You Owe the American Public an Apology!

Mr President; You Owe the American Public an Apology!
Al Ritter

Mr President, You owe the citizens, including the patriotic Bikers an apology. You speak about compassion and empathy in America and yet you disrespected every American by approving a Muslim March to protest how THEY feel treated like victims of 9/11!

The arrogance of your party is astounding! Have you no feelings for the victims of 9/11, their families or the first responders? By approving that permit and denying a request from the bikers for their own counter protest, you trampled on every grave of every innocent life lost that day!

You may think 9/11/01 is a “long time ago” as Jay Carney likes to say, but 9/11/12 certainly isn’t, and you sir haven’t answered one damn question about that day, and continue to threaten actual witnesses to that horrible event in Benghazi.

Although this day is not done, it is clear that OUR words WILL be heard in Washington DC as the rolling thunder will speak for us and we watch as the Muslim protest has dwindled to a few hundred (as reported by your lapdog The Huffington Post.)

Your goal as President should be a representative of the majority of the population, and not a radical mouthpiece to an aggressive group of terrorists.

You should be humbled today, as your Russian counterpart has made you look extremely foolish on the world stage, but instead your spin masters try to make you look better than you are. Your arrogance not only amazes me, but it scares me, your narcissistic attitude threatens the entire stability of world power structure.

Get us out of the Middle-east……let them solve their own problems…….Democracy is not a wanted political structure in countries who have only experienced dictatorship and warlords their entire lives. It is NOT our responsibility to be in the “country building” business.

And while we are discussing “Democracy” and apologies………OUR Country is a “Republic” Mr. President, to call it anything else shows your ignorance of our founding documents and founding fathers.
