Hatred In America; What Has Happened to Truth?
I go around an talk on several blogs both conservative and liberal and when I run into someone being dishonest on either side, I'll point to the actual numbers from government sites or polls taken from reputable center line site. A trend I have noticed from both sides of the isle but more harsh on the liberal side is what happens when you win the debate using the truth instead of a conservative or liberal published talking points. Many time when I win a debate using reputable sites and government data on either side, the people spreading the falsities will not debate you again and avoid you because you have caught them in their lie. What I have found recently from these sites but mainly the liberal sites are that if you show their bias and falsities; provide sites like the Government Accounting Office (GAO), Federal Budget Office (FBO), FBI, or even videos from YouTube which shows the person in their own words proving your the honest one, they will avoid you but many sites the monitors will ban you. This isn't because you are throwing hatred around but the truth, it use to be that from both sides the truth was what mattered but now it seems its the agenda.
A blog from the other night who also had "America" in their title was saying that President Obama had cut the deficit in half which President Obama has never said and has acknowledged its escalation. I pointed out the FBO numbers and the GOV sites to be accurate; I won the debate but after he had soundly loss the debate I was banned. I went back to the site because I was banned by "Moderator 4" and it said if you have any questions contact them; I found out that "Moderator 4" was the same guy who loss the debate. I sent "Moderator 4" a letter telling him to please forward why I was ban and I would forward all my email to prove I did nothing wrong but I know I will not receive an answer or the right action from this site. I took "Moderator 4" power away when I proved he was just a ninnyhammer and just spreading lies, since neither he nor this site can stand up to the truth the only action left for them was to ban the truth and anyone bring it to their site. My question is, what has happened to the truth being the most important? Why when you expose a lie or bad data received from others, does both sides meet it head on with unbridled hatred?
John Adams- "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."
Our leader of our country have become full of vial hatred and spew it at all who disagree; President Obama, cannot even do an interview without belittling anyone who disagrees with him; he knows the economy isn't good, he knows the unemployment numbers are cooked, he knows his signature law which was signed before everyone could read it was flawed and hurting the people, President Obama and our leaders from both sides know this but don't care.
Samuel Adams- "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"
President Obama, you stated "That I will hold my staff or agencies, and the people in them accountable when the fail to perform their responsibilities at the highest level", "all will be held accountable if they don't", and "ultimately the buck stops with me". Was this just lip service? You have yet to hold anyone accountable and now look at history I believe we have a reincarnated President Nixon. In your own word you promised the citizens of the US you would hold your staff or agencies, and the people in them accountable; who was held accountable for IRS targeting, Benghazi, Fast & Furious (Holder lied under oath), Ms Sibelius' violation of the Hatch Act, EPA targeting & email violations, $500 to $800 million ACA web site that doesn't work, and the purposeful infliction of pain on the American people for political gains. President Obama, you and your administration has violated the US Constitution (George W. Bush did as well) and your own Affordable Care Act law because not even a president can remove parts of a law without going back through congress.
Samuel Adams- "Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt."
" Nothing is more essential to the establishment of manners in a State than that all persons employed in places of power and trust be men of unexceptionable characters."
I don't just blame President Obama and our congress over this but mainly our News Media. Our News Media refuses to report the truth anymore, they will report a half truth sometimes but I was raised that a half truth is a whole lie.
Thomas Jefferson- " The price of freedom is eternal vigilance"
This is what the media should be doing but no matter what happens, the media will not hold ALL politicians accountable. Much of the media today is nothing but lobbyist spreading propaganda for which political party the like the most. What ever happened to political parties holding their people to an ethical standard and a code of conduct above the normal person. Do you remember what the American Revolution was all about and what our founding fathers said about government?
Thomas Jefferson- " I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe."
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
Our government is wasting our money and our grand kids money. Our large cities are the places of most corruption including voting times and mostly the places who want everything for nothing. Currently we have way to much government and government intrusion on our lives and has started becoming tyrannical.
George Washington- "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearsome master."
"Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness."
Our founding fathers were geniuses and even if you do not believe in the Christian foundation all of our founding fathers portrayed, their writing and quotes many times are wise and even in the case of Benjamin Rush prophetic.
Benjamin Rush- "By removing the Bible from schools we would be wasting so much time and money in punishing criminals and so little pains to prevent crime. Take the Bible out of our schools and there would be an explosion in crime."
Religious or not we can see that Benjamin Rush was correct because this has definitely happened. We as a nation need to get our schools back to teach truth instead of agendas, skills instead of social desires, and servitude to our country instead of greed and receiving all we can for free. We need to stop the spending, pay off our debts, live within our means, and remove all special rights congress has bestowed on themselves. This is the only way we can save our country, protect our freedom, and get back to the truth.
