Now - it is my belief that the Government as a whole is a designed set of lies to serve whatever special interest that is paying the highest commission to which party / committee / individual.
I believe Trump to be even more weak because of his blatant refusal to tell the truth on some very important topics. Here's the deal. If you tell the truth and do what you say you are going to do - this much scandal does not follow you around. Not all of this stuff about Russia is made up folks. Something is there. You can deny it all you want and keep supporting - but you are then only contributing to the issue. Heck, Flynn was on both Russia and Turkey's payroll and he has confirmed that. He was even still on Turkey's payroll AFTER he was sworn in to Trump's cabinet. These issues are a big deal and they are not all made up by "butt hurt" Democrats.
Want more proof that the grand old party does not have your interest at heart? Here's proof of the attitude in Congress. Trump is not slick enough to hide the reality. "Vote for TrumpCare or lose your congressional seat!" He means what he says AND he knows that that is the only thing that most of the members of the GOP care about - and not because of their burning desire to represent US ... but rather the kickbacks and golden parachutes involved in a career of glad-handing.
Come join me here in the middle and get rid of these liars that only want power and to isolate all the wealth to the already super-wealthy.
Being moderate and having the ability to see both ends of the silly two party system we operate within is REAL STRENGTH.
I'll end this with a few quotes about lying:
My father always told me that what's wrong with lying is that it's an admission of weakness. If you're the strongest, you can afford to tell the truth.
--K. J. PARKER, Evil for Evil
The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them.
--ELENA GOROKHOVA, A Mountain of Crumbs
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
--BIBLE, Proverbs 12:22
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
--STEPHEN KING, Needful Things
Lies are like sleeping pills. You should only use them when you absolutely have to. They spoil everything if you make a habit of them.
--DANIEL QUINN, The Holy
