Conservative lies: You've heard them all before-

Liberals want to take all our guns away, Liberals want open borders, Liberals never work, Liberals are soft on crime, Liberals just want is "free stuff" Liberals are Socialists, Liberals hate white people, Liberals are destroying our cities with crime and violence. On and on it goes. Here is the cold, hard truth why these lies persist to this day-

Conservatives have nothing better to offer the American people!

Think about it...was the American economy better under Reagan, the Bush's and Trump than that of Clinton, Obama, and Biden? Answer: NO. Was America any safer? Answer: NO Was the crime rate any lower? Answer: NO Was the national debt any smaller? Answer: NO. (Clinton was the last President to record a national surplus) Was the environment any cleaner? Answer: NO Were our children any better educated? Answer: NO. Did our justice system work any better? Answer: NO And the list goes on -

The bottom line is the Conservative agenda has little to offer average Americans, and a great deal to offer the 1%. To make up for this, Conservative America resorts to district gerrymandering, name calling, conspiracy theory's, soundbites such as "deep state" "MSM", as well as deeply questioning the legitimacy of America's 240+ year electoral process to create the impression that "it's all rigged!" When in fact it's really not.

But, Conservatives have nothing better to offer....

I think the reason PEOPLE lie, is because humans are emotional creatures. The left lies as much as a right.

Sales, it's a perfectly legitimate job, going around selling to people, those who do the best at it, earn the most money, are those who are able to manipulate people's emotions the most.

Power has always been about manipulating people to get what they want. Nothing has changed. The systems has changed, but the basis behind it is the same.

With this in mind you have to look at your systems. Different systems will work better (depending on what you think "better" is).

For me "better" is when you have different view points with their own representation in parliament/Congress.

The German system has Proportional Representation with a 5% cut off. They usually have 5 political parties representing five different types of people.

Denmark has PR with a 2% cut off, with 10 political parties.

The US has a system that benefits those with the money, those willing to lie, those who don't represent those who are voting for them.

You want less lying, you want more parties to represent the different people of a country, then PR is the way forwards.

But obviously those in control don't want PR. They like screwing people over.

Yet one more person to ignore on here it seems.

Your hatred is so blind and irrational you aren't worth even seeing your posts. You provide no information, no link, no reasoning, no nothing. Just a mean spirited, completely one sided, angry, and very narrow minded opinion piece that doesn't actually say anything.

Man Everytime I ignore one of you guys this board gets better.

Liberals do the exact same thing. You’re both a bunch of bubbling idiots.

You're confused. It's political and corporate elites who believe they are the rulers of mankind and are doing everything they can to cement their power by communism.

You mean political and Corporate elites, like Donald Trump?

I dunno, Bill. I think that, for the most part, they're not really lying.

It looks to me like they just believe everything they're told in their universe, and they no longer have the fundamental human curiosity required to check it out and honestly question or challenge it. That was part of the brilliance of Limbaugh, telling them daily to avoid and attack any media that disagreed with them. That becomes impulse over time. This is just intense, voluntary intellectual myopia. Informational isolation.

Look in their eyes when they talk. They're enraged and they're terrified. That seems pretty real to me.

Now, if you're saying that their "leaders" in the media and politics know better and are lying to them for their own professional advantage, that it just drips down from there, I think that's where the problem is. Those people have to know better.
Most of them know they're lying, but they don't care because they're about power.

The same way liberals lie about having to show a photo I.D. to vote is racist or wanting a secure border means you hate immigrants or supporting the second ammendment makes you a gun nut. Before you talk about the lies others spread take a good look at yourself and the one's you spread.

The goal of every "conservative" is to dominate society and every individual in it. It appears that they believe that they are, for some reason, entitled to do so and substitute their own judgment for that of others. They also believe that they are somehow qualified for this role, more qualified than all of their fellow citizens who don't agree with them. It's no surprise that many of them probably believe the shit they spew while the more cynical among them don't, but do recognize that their fellow "conservatives' " gullibility is a powerful tool to help them achieve their objective of dominance. There is nothing like having an army of easily-manipulated useful idiots behind you.

All politicians suck , afaik. But what you say is the exact opposite from what I see, when it comes to POLITICS.

Conservatives that I know and respect consistently favor freedom of individual choice over forced mandates of any kind. There are a few toss up issues, like the abortion issue: where many conservatives favor the freedom and choice of the un-born child's natural rights, and almost equally many conservatives favor the choice of the mother. This is why Roe V. Wade stood for so long without much challenge.

Any time there is a new tax or a new law that eats away at natural freedoms, it's been put in place by Democrats. Liberal Democrats claim to want to take from the rich and give to the poor, but when in fact what happens is they take from the rich and line their own pockets so they can keep promoting their socialist agenda. Now don't get me wrong, some sort of assistance for the poor is a good thing that I personally support because it's the Christian way. The level of theft the Democrats are pushing is a WHOLE different story, and is clearly a violation of human natural rights to keep possess and enjoy the bounty of their own labor.

They occupy an alternate reality...they have to because reality has shunned them and their ideals at every turn.

It's not even that.

The Right Wing media lies to them and they don't CARE if it's true or not. They just absorb it as if it's reality. And when something they are fed is shown to be obviously false...they just shrug and say .."Yea but"

Obama was born in Kenya--I don't
Hillary murdered Seth Rich and Justice Scalia--Not directly, as crooked as our gov is who knows
Hillary ran a child sex ring out of a Pizza Parlor--um, no
The election was stolen--Democrats cheat and have for years
Covid is a hoax--absolutely not
Vaccines will kill you--They can, do and have

Open your mind and stop believing all the talking points
Every one of those lies was believed for a period of time by the bulk of Republicans. Some still are

Latest would be the red flag laws. Removal of guns from an owner without due process.
