    A myth is a false belief that arises innocently and organically.  A lie is something people say because they have an interest in promoting the falsehood.  There are few myths in the Republican Party, but a hell of a lot of lies.

      Multiple GOP myths exist of course. Recently, they often revolve around Ronald Reagan.

      The plural of anecdote is not data.

        Just making shit up because they want to believe it is lying.
