Let’s be honest here: we all know that Democrats lie. They often see it as a means to an end; to get what they believe is the greater outcome. Although I’m willing to bet that many are just pathological liars. And as I’m sure you’ve experienced, trying to catch a Liberal friend or relative in a lie is nigh impossible. Logic bounces off Liberals like bullets bounce off superman. They are masters of semantics and don’t seem to be able to admit defeat.
Take the new tax deal for example. Obama himself, numerous times throughout his campaign, and after, said that he would only raise taxes on the top 2% of earners. Even though it is a terrible idea to raise taxes on job creators, at least he had the chance to be truthful. He had an opportunity to take a Liberal stereotype off the rails. As expected, he failed miserably.
According to The Daily Mail:
“Earners in the latter group [$200,000 – $500,000] will pay an average 1.3 percent more – or an additional $2,711 – in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent – or up to $1,784 – the D.C.-based think tank reported…Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.”
President Obama said the following not several days ago: “Under this law, more than 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up.”
Not only is this an outright lie, but it’s also an evasion! Not only are income taxes going up for most Americans because of this “deal,” payroll taxes are going up by roughly 2% as well. With this new deal, average Americans earning between $30,000 – $200,000 annually will pay up to an additional $1,700 in taxes this year.
Not only do we have a President who doesn’t seem to mind lying directly to our faces, but we have Democratic Congressmen calling Republicans–who are trying to lower the debt and secure our financial future–“terrorists.” Yesterday, Alan Grayson said this on MSNBC:
“Well, they say it’s a device for them to extract concessions that they have otherwise be able to accomplish, that’s why it’s legislative terrorism. They’re using the debt ceiling as a means to cut Social Security benefits, cut Medicare benefits, cut unemployment insurance, cut anything of any use to any ordinary human being in this country simply because they want more money for tax cuts for the rich.”
Not for nothing, but I think President Obama and his Democrat minions would make incredible Survivor contestants. Their ability to lie like it’s a necessary bodily function is why we need term limits in Congress, and why we need a true Conservative President in 2016.
