    Truthmatters stated in another thread:

    Since she doesn't seem to be responding there I thought Id creates a new thread asking for details about the points she makes. Most directly:

    How do you make liars stop lying?

    And

    Who determiens who is lying?

    You don't. This is America and everyone has the right to lie. It's called Free Speech. The People can decide for themselves who they believe or don't believe. Everyone lies and that's just fact. However we don't "make liars stop lying." That's just not what a free society is all about. This is the problem with Socialism/Progressivism in the end. It's just not an ideology which promotes individual Freedom & Liberty. I really do hope more Americans come to realize this.

    The facts determine what is a lie.

    Such as Reagan did not raise taxes.
    This is clearly a lie but many still say it and believe it.

    Also remember political advertisements are specifically exempt from truth in advertising laws.
    For a reason :D

    I like to combat lies with the truth.

    Lies are not subjective, the truth is objective.

    You don't make other people do anything.

    And the truth determines what is a lie. It's not subjective.

    Let the People decide for themselves what is a truth or a lie. We don't "make liars stop lying." That's not what our country is about. This is where the Socialists and Neocons always go wrong. It's not about making anyone do anything. Maybe someday they'll figure that out.
