Lying as a Political Tactic


After President Obama’s speech before congress, and after seeing how the democrats are arguing their side of the debate on health care, and especially after seeing Rep. Grayson (Democrat-Florida) tell outright, bald-faced lies about the other side of the aisle, I have to admit, as any honest person must, that the democrat strategy is and has been for some time:

  1. Lie.
  2. Lie some more.
  3. Accuse your opponents of being racist, fascist homophobes.

I can understand why the democrats, socialists, communists, and fascists (the real ones who want to mix government and business) have to lie to win the debate. It’s simply because their position is indefensible.

On our side, we argue about natural, God-given, unalienable rights. We declare, boldly, that not only white Americans, but every American, indeed, every creature on earth who can be considered human in any way, shape, or form, has these basic rights:

  1. The right to life.
  2. The right to liberty.
  3. The right to the pursuit of happiness.

We define these rights plainly, in a way that everyone can understand and appreciate.

  1. You get to live, and the only reason why someone should kill you is to protect life.
  2. You get to do what you want with your life, and the only reason we’d lock you up or keep you from doing what you want is when you deprive people of their rights to liberty.
  3. You get to keep the product of your life and liberty, and the only reason we’d stop you from doing so is if you were using that to deprive others of the fruits of their labor.

This message resonates with every human being alive, to be alive, or ever alive. This is the nature of our human spirit. This is the kernel of conscience implanted by God in every living soul.

These are things we are ready to sacrifice our lives for. Not just because they are wonderful ideas, but because without these things, life isn’t worth living. We will gladly take unnatural risks if it means we get to keep our rights.

The Democratic Party has had to lie to obtain power. They lied about what they believed. They lied about what they intend to do with their power. And they, most of all, lied about their lies.

Let me describe, briefly, what rights the democrats believe in.

  1. The right of the government to take the life of her people.
  2. The right of the government to take the liberty of her people.
  3. The right of the government to take the happiness and property of her people.

We can see it in the plans they are proposing. The government determines what liberties we have and so it can determine what insurance plans we can buy. The government determines who lives and dies and so it can determine who will be treated and for how long. The government determines how much money we are allowed to keep and so it determines how much we have to pay into the plans and how much the companies we hire have to pay for the license to operate that particular business.

The left has to lie because no sane person who hasn’t spent their life in the vain pursuit of power or cocaine and marijuana would ever come to believe what they believe.

And so they lie, lie, lie and continue to lie until they are blue in the face.

Americans, don’t trust any politician. The facts are before you. You can read the bills yourself or read the reports on the bills by various organizations, including the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). There are a lot of think tanks in Washington D.C., of all political stripes, willing to tell you what is or is not in the bill. They can reference, easily, particular sections of particular bills and thus have you independently verify their facts, or they may try to obscure the sources of their information.

Above all, trust your instincts. And measure everything government does in this simple way:

Will this increase the natural, God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Or will it infringe upon them?

The answer to that question will tell you whether to support or oppose the action.

And the answer is always surprisingly easy to find, even amidst all the lies.

    Excellent essay. It is true, politicians lie. But Marxists lie more. [Funny I know, but it is true.] Just read any of their playbooks and you’ll see it’s basic political tactic. I urge every American who values the traditional way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we have fought and died for over the last 250 years, to read The Road to Serfdom by F.A. Hayek and of course Sol Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and any of his other books. They are classics. The Communist Manifesto is another nice little work everyone should be familiar enough with to be able to see through the lies. Thanks for posting your essay and keep up the pressure on the liars. :D
