The Lies From The Mouths of Conservatives


We know that Conservatives lie because when they're the mouthpieces of the rich and greedy in a participatory democracy they have to...but sometimes we wonder who believes those lies.

Is it the poor or the Low Information Voter or the Cons themselves?

It looks like the biggest liars are the haters - and they're believed by the most gullible in our society because that' the way the Cons like it...

"The double-standard of making the poor prove they’re worthy of government benefits."


The actual contents of a Rhode Island woman's cupboard after two shopping trips paid for with food stamps. (Michael S. Williamson/The Washington Post)

"...(R)esearch has shown that a remarkable number of people who don't think they get anything from government in fact benefit from one of these programs. This explains why we get election-season soundbites from confused voters who want policymakers to 'keep your government hands off my Medicare!' This is also what enables politicians to gin up indignation among small-government supporters who don't realize they rely on government themselves..."

In a world dominated by Conservatives, we can look forward to a lie a day from every Cons that is given a voice...is it the kind of world intelligent people want to live in?



The Cons don't want people to vote, of course.  Too many voters spoil the Conservative broth.

And one of the better ways to stifle the vote is to pretend that both parties are the same.



Conservatives would also have us believe that war is inevitable...



...and that man-made climate change isn't real.



The ways they spin their lies is through language...



...a very special language...



...because they're masters insist upon it...



...no matter what the truth might reveal...



...although every once in awhile, a Con wakes up and smells the truth.



People have warned us about our stupidity before...



...but we keep listening to their lies about lazy, shiftless homeless people, for example...



...and equal pay for equal work...



...and that the Cons are religious folks...

...in their own special way...



...because America is a Christian nation, they say.



But their house organ, Fox News, lies for good reason...



...because the truth can be very expensive for taxpayers and Fox is very thrifty...



...and brave...



...as their supporters understand so completely.



Because honest investigative journalism is the backbone of democracy.



********************

As election time approaches, the lies will continue.

We not only know that both parties are NOT the same, we know that the GOP is a safe haven for biggest political liars in the country - the Cons.

Conservatism is like that - lies for the good of billionaires, not the people.

Lies lead to suffering by the poor and what remains of the middle class.

And lies lead to wholesale theft.

And lies lead to murder.

Isn't it WAY past time to criminalize Conservatism?
