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.
