Getting Votes More Important Than Truth

Most don’t want to remember that Trump, in his “past” has publicly announced his support of an “assault weapons ban” and longer waiting periods to buy guns. Because now he is running for office, he presents his position on the Second Amendment in a different perspective.

And herein is the real issue. Voters are so ignorant and they want to BELIEVE so badly, they fail miserably to understand that slime-ball politicians all become chameleons at election time.

We failed miserably with Obama, refusing to examine his past. We are failing again.

    Who killed more men women and children, and each other using assault weapons which are cannons, missiles, bombs dropped from assault planes, and small arms fully auto through single shot? Fools in uniforms obeying the orders of lawyers and actors educated as lawyers posing as political leaders.

    What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.—Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) German-born American political philosopher.

    Hypocrisy in anything whatever may deceive the cleverest and most penetrating man, but the least wide-awake of children recognizes it, and is revolted by it, however ingeniously it may be disguised.—Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) Russian writer.

    For neither man nor angel can discern hypocrisy, the only evil that walks invisible, except to God alone.—John Milton (1608-1674) English poet.

    It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.—Thomas Paine (1737-1809) English intellectual.

    With affection beaming in one eye, and calculation shining out of the other.—Charles Dickens (1812-1870) British novelist.

    The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that’s also a hypocrite!—Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) American playwright.

    Hypocrisy is the most difficult and nerve-racking vice that any man can pursue; it needs an unceasing vigilance and a rare detachment of spirit. It cannot, like adultery or gluttony, be practiced at spare moments; it is a whole-time job.—W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) British novelist and playwright.
