The title line of this post is from a Paul Newman movie. It certainly describes the current political climate. It appears that the majority party and it’s associated agents will say what ever they want with impunity and hope they can get away with it. The cue is taken from their leader President Trump. Mr Trump has told the truth probably, how many times? The Majority party has taken up that method of dealing with their constituents. There have been several town halls where the firmly entrenched Congress members faces hostile crowds but they continue to follow the Nazi method of communication: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”-Joseph Goebbels. The citizens of America while certainly seeking good government have been and still are bombarded by a steady stream of unabashed and from the hip falsehoods that the speakers hope we are not smart enough to see through. It does not take a wizard to know that the majority party does not have the interest of the public in mind as they continue the process of rolling back protections put in place by the previous administration. The mid year elections is the opportunity for all of us to shift the political landscape to our advantage. The current politicians are all less than trustworthy in one way or another. There are at least a dozen ways to say: “you can tell if a politician is lying because his mouth is moving”!
