I’m Tired of Both Parties Lying

I’m Tired of Both Parties Lying
Dave Speck

I heard a friend say, today, that, “I’m Tired of Both Parties Lying.”

He knows that the Republican party is lying at breathtaking levels right now. But the Republican voters think the Democrats are doing it too.

Well, as always, the media tries to paint a false equivalence but there just isn’t one. The Republican party is festered with deceit. Sure, you might find an exaggeration or two and even maybe a lie from some lone, unheard of Democrat. But it’s not polluting the Democratic party like it’s killing the Republican party.

There is no equivalence. Lying is the only way the Republicans can win. Their platform is against almost everything the majority of Americans want and need. So they can’t run on their programs and ideas, which means they have to run on their lies.

The Democratic party, on the other hand, supports positions that are in keeping with the vast majority of Americans.

  1. Does America want higher taxes for the middle class and no taxes for the Romney Rich? No, but the Republican party does.
  2. Does America want our medical industry disaster fixed? Of course they do. What do the Republicans want? Kill Obamacare. Oh, and they’ll replace it with something some day but they don’t know what and quit asking them.
  3. Does America want poisonous stinking polluting industries regulated? Of course they do. Do the Republicans? Well, no.
  4. Does America want the Free Trade agreements stopped? Do we want to start protecting our industries again? Of course we do and the Democrats have passed bills that would do just that but the Republicans have filibustered them to prevent them from even coming up for a vote.

It’s pretty obvious the Democrats don’t need to lie to get elected and it’s plain as the wart on Romney’s nose that he has to lie to hide his great plans for America

Are We Better Off Than 4 Years Ago?

But, here are the headlines from just four short years ago. You know, the Republican era. My how things have changed!
