  •  They lie for the same reason Satan lied. (1+ / 0-)

    They disrespect the knowing creatures God made. It's likely that though they have the appearance of being human and are able to act like men, some humans are missing a link in their brains. So, instead of being able to think ahead and evaluate their own behavior, they are limited to responding to prompts, whose source they do not know. Often, one suspects, when they're not acting out of habit, based on repetition, the main prompt is probably one or another of their emotions -- I.e. they're directed by their hormones.

    Expecting them to change is probably futile. The best hope seems to lie in triggering a different hormonal response. I think that's what Republican political operatives fear and that accounts for the five year long effort to counter Barack Obama's magnetism. The crowds under the Arch in St. Louis in 2008, in the heartland, surely gave them a turn. If so many people could be marshalled without causing a riot, they were up the creek and only extreme persistence could keep Democrats from  racking up victories. So  McConnell was pledged to defeat and to never give an inch. Do they care that they are not liked? No more than they care about anything but wielding influence. He who perverts the truth has influence. It's a really cheap trick that Satan hit upon. Imagine that! Satan could undo the Creator's handiwork with a lie.
    How great is that? And it doesn't even take any work.

      Republicans are the representatives from Hell and Satan is really Rience Pubis, er, Priebus.
