Americans Ignore Simple Truth: We Are Friends or Enemies of Liberty

Americans become distracted, even lost in the nomenclature of the day and that, I believe, is part of the problem. Our willingness to buy into false titles and false premises is, precisely, where we lose focus. We have today many who call themselves Democrats, Republicans, Progressives, Libertarians, Liberals, Conservatives and Moderates. What do these labels mean? No two people would agree exactly.

John Boehner and the Republican leadership are trying to con conservative voters by floating the idea that Congressional Republicans will abandon their amnesty push for illegal aliens. Anyone who believes that needs to listen very carefully. End runs, misdirection, deceit, and outright lies are primary strategies of politicians. They are every bit as critical to them as the use of soundbites to have people forget Congressional betrayals of the past and focus on a 30-second sound-clip and thus use the sound-clip to get reelected. I’m not being cynical; I’m being […]
