As the truth concerning Barack Obamas gross distortions about catastrophic Sequestration spending cuts gains wider media and public awareness, I am reminded of how far removed we are from the days where common sense existed and rational people were able to engage in civil conversation. Perhaps the single greatest fact that impedes our nations ability to engage in civil discourse is the existence of the elephant in the room the one fact that half of Americans simply can not bring themselves to admit, or they rationalize away with the excuse, everyone does it.
Perhaps the single most vile, disgusting, dishonorable and despised human act, one that inflames emotions and insults the offended, is when one human lies to another. Inherent in our souls, deep within our DNA, is an expectation that we deserve the basic human decency of truth. When lied to, most humans feel disrespected, insulted, angry and find themselves unable to maintain anything resembling a healthy relationship with a liar.
Perhaps the second most vile, infuriating and insulting human act is to falsely call another human a liar. Honest people do not appreciate being lied to, nor do they tolerate their integrity being called into question when in fact, the allegation is false.
How to we function as a nation, when in fact our President is a proven, bald-faced liar? When his fans refuse to accept the allegation, the ignorant hear only what they choose to hear, the victims of his lies are so enraged they find it difficult to be civil, and the media either shamelessly ignores his lies, promote his lies or they rationalize his vile, disrespectful behavior with stories about how the other side is just as guilty? The victim of lies is truth. When truth dies, hell emerges.

I hate to break it to Rob Cunningham that its impossible to have a rational discourse with a rabid muzzie lovin commie and his legion of minions who are out to destroy our country.
The Father of Lies has spawned a new generation of offspring.
You think I don’t know how difficult it is to do this? Who needs to accept truth and admit Obama is a pathological liar? The intended audience of this article is the kook-aid drinkers and ignorant, those blissfully unaware citizens that may just be awakening. What we can’t do is nothing more than scream and yell within our own echo chambers. Or worse, nit pick fellow conservatives on the same side of the battle with you. Please, a little less snark and little more common sense.
There can be no common decency because...
Republicans use ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER.
Democrats use Alinsky’s RULES FOR RADICALS.
Thank God America is not the same thing as Government.
There are some lies which may be innocent--a "white lie" to avoid hurting someone's feelings (like an answer to the question "Does this dress make me look fat?") or to prevent the enemy from learning information that they can use to hurt your country. The commandment zeroes on on the worst kind of lie, that which harms another person.
That has been Obama's stock-in-trade all along--lying about Bush, lying about other Republicans, lying about anyone who does not support his agenda.
Bravo. I couldn’t agree more completely.
Dude we are way past rational discourse in this country and we went past the ballot box in Nov.
Rush Limbaugh had it right when he said “anybody with a D after their name is the enemy” Words to live by.
a lot of the ones with the R’s after their name aren’t allies either
You got that right.
Great. You go ahead and give up. The D’s are multiplying like rabbits, exiting government school brainwashing factories by the millions every year, inhaling more crap media than ever before and your lame answer is to ignore all with a (d) affiliation. Let me know how that works out for you. I’ll be sure to remind your family in 20 years how well you worked to find a solution vs. screaming inside your protected echo chamber.
I’m not giving up I just think its more likely to be the 1776 solution. This country is too divided to get together for a weenie roast.
