  •  Liars aren't delusional, (18+ / 0-)

    they're just liars. Stop accusing the right of lying in good faith. They lie to preach to the choir, the base, and keep them enflamed. They lie about Obama's birthplace, climate change, the ACA and specifically about center, left and liberal positions; they need good straw men to excoriate in the echo chamber. It's we progressives who are delusional: we think fact-based arguments are sensible in a world where nobody fact-checks, and whether you should base your argument on the facts, or on what you believe. "Hmm, guess I'll go with belief. For the thousandth time in a row..."

    I thought I was poor because I owned no shoes; then I met a CEO who owned no Congressman.

      and now it's clean up time.

      Very, very good.

      And I also agree with your comment. We need to learn that.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
