Conservatives Lie, Cheat and Steal

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney (and the rest of the Bush administration) lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction to get us into the Iraq War. To begin with George W. Bush cheated his way into the White House when the Supreme Court stopped the recount in Florida in 2000. (The fact that an incompetent half-wit like W. could even be nominated for the presidency on the name-recognition of his father proves how corrupt our political process has become.) Then Bush and Cheney cheated us out of our tax dollars that could have been used for our schools, hospitals, roads and bridges. They stole $700 billion from us for the false war in Iraq, and then they stole another $700 billion to bailout the Wall Street banks.

When did the Great Recession begin? When did the bailouts begin? In 2007/ 2008, under Republican President George W. Bush. If you like bailouts, vote Republican – they started the bailouts.

I’d like to have a civil discussion about these matters with my conservative countrymen, but conservatives continue to lie, cheat and steal.

    What an underhanded and deceitful trick that was.

    Underhanded and deceitful tricks are my specialty. I’m also very good at lies and treachery.

    By the way, you’re welcome.

“Culture Crusader” you have proven by your actions of repeatedly editing my words in order to change their meaning, and by your admission of deceit and treachery above, that you can not be trusted to engage in an honest, forthright discussion.

What you have proved is that We, the People, must continue to beware the Conservatives. George W. Bush claimed to be a “Compassionate Conservative,” and then he started a false war for his own political gain and for the financial benefit of his cronies and military contractors…at the expense of the taxpayers/ the American People.

Conservatives lie, cheat and steal. Do not trust anyone who calls himself or herself a “Conservative.” It is code for self-serving, selfish behavior. The ideas “conservatives” espouse are violations against We, the People.

The Great Recession we are experiencing now is the result of Republican Party Rule.

– George W. Bush is President from January 2001 to January 2009

– The Republicans hold a majority in both houses of Congress from 2001 to 2006

– The unregulated hey day of Subprime is 2004-2007, when the Bush Securities & Exchange Commission allowed self-regulation by the banks.

Now the Conservatives and Republicans want to blame Obama for the mess that they created. That is the modus operandi of the “Conservative”: Lie, Cheat and Steal.

It’s up to the rest of us to roll up our sleeves and help Obama and the Democrats rebuild our country. Sadly, the Conservatives and Republicans are not even going to help clean up their own mess. They are children, and the rest of us will have to be the adults.

Fande = Fact & Evidence; Cande = Conjecture & Exaggeration

Bring your Fande, leave your Cande!

The Jewish Barber (dressed as Hynkel): I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an Emperor – that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible — Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another; human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there’s room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

The way of life can be free and beautiful.

But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

To those who can hear me I say, “Do not despair.” The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die; and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die, liberty will never perish.

Soldiers: Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel; who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate; only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural.

Soldiers: Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written, “the kingdom of God is within man” — not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men, in you, you the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power! Let us all unite!! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie! They do not fulfill their promise; they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people!! Now, let us fight to fulfill that promise!! Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.

Soldiers: In the name of democracy, let us all unite!!!

Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up, Hannah. The clouds are lifting. The sun is breaking through. We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world, a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed and brutality.

Look up, Hannah. The soul of man has been given wings, and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow — into the light of hope, into the future, the glorious future that belongs to you, to me, and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up.
