“If you tell a lie long enough, loud enough, and
often enough, people will believe it.” And, “People are more
likely to believe a big lie than a small one.” Adolph Hitler.
A person who pays attention to politics and is informed of the real facts, regularly has to endure watching the democrats and their ads just blatantly lie. Democrats even go to the point of presenting lying numbers or numbers that they’ve twisted to their favor so that they can result in a sound bite to fool the public – for example the number of jobs created under Obama.
An example of a blatant lie is a spin that happened after Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention. The speech was said to be ineffective because “Romney offered no specifics about how he would fix the economy.” The only way that lie would work is if a person didn’t see the speech. That’s because in the speech, Romney listed 5 very specific strategies on how he would fix the economy. Therefore the democrats figured that most people didn’t see the speech but would only see this lie that would be carried by the liberal media. I even saw some supposed conservatives parrot this lie. Very frustrating.
What Romney should say about the democrat lies is: “either the people delivering these lies are very unintelligent or very evil.” But the bottom line is that even if they are very uninformed, they are then evil to prematurely jump on the lying sound bites or stoop to lying to get democrats elected, and don’t really care about people or truth.
Therefore, the GOP should continuously run ads to debunk the democrat lies … first showing the lie, and then the truth. And that is because, like Hitler said, and like you might have experienced with people you know, people usually just believe and then parrot sound bites.
Something that was particularly heartening for the truth did happen though last night in the Beck vs. Spitzer debate on the DISH network. There was an equally divided live audience at the debate and a crowd who equally applauded both Beck and Spitzer. But later in the debate when Spitzer lied by saying a common democrat sound bite that “Romney paid no taxes”, he got resounding boos from the crowd, (the first boos of the night), who then continued booing him, while heavily applauding Beck. Thank goodness that people were educated enough to know that Sptitzer was lying and that they had a strong disdain for lying.
I think that a good strategy now by the GOP would be to continue educating people with a series of ads titled: “Democrats – a party of lies.”
