Republicans don't value truth. There, I said it.

They can keep lying to each other as much as they want because trying to correct them is a hopeless task. 🐘💩

Republicans and Democrats are both self-serving, corrupt, lying jerks. They are politicians🤷‍♀️

I agree. And if it’s a truth they don’t like they find a way to bury it, like allowing nuts like Alex Jones to declare it a "hoax" or passing legislation against it being taught in schools. Ironically, while censoring factual information they’ll allow misinformation to be spread in the name of
"free speech". It boggles the mind.

So you are a oft blocked troll hiding behind a new profile? Big deal. In light of what the biden crime family has done, and the all the false accusations thrown at Trump, its clear you have no idea what the truth is.
@TexChik You're lying to your fellow liars.
TexChik · F
@HollyW oh a pure libt*rd? How many times have I blocked you before this time?
@TexChik None. Something isn't true just because an unfounded suspicion popped into your mind. Please stop lying about people. It's childish and mentally disturbed.
Folks here can proclaim "bothsidesism" and identify falsehoods from members of both parties. [b]BUT![/b]

Trump was FAR AND AWAY the most DISHONEST president ever. Trump made 30,573 lies & false claims as president

Nobody else comes anywhere close.
@HoraceGreenley Sorry, the numbers STILL won't add up for you. If anything, Covid deaths were [i]under[/i]counted. 500,000 excess deaths; only 345,000 classified as Covid. That still leaves 155,000 excess deaths.

[sep][sep][sep]

Here in the table are US death numbers for the top ten causes of death for six years ending in 2020. Notice how there are 20% more deaths in 2020 than the average of the previous five years? Doing the math, that's 500,000 excess deaths in 2020.

Notice how, in 2020, 345,000 of those 500,000 excess deaths are classified as Covid? Notice how almost all causes of death rose in 2020, including cancer & heart disease?

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2778234

If there's any validity to the claim that lots of deaths have been mis-classified as Covid, why did almost all causes of death increase in 2020? Wouldn't mis-classification produce a reduction in those other causes? The evidence says mis-classification is a red herring.

@DiegoWolfe Ranked 👏 choice 👏 voting! 👏
And you see truth and honesty along with transparency in Democrats like Joe Biden? Just asking.
@SomeMichGuy Giving away the farm, you say. We have a man who sold his position as a senator, a VP and his time in the office using his son and family. Serious selling out of his country.

MarkPaul · 26-30, M
@soar2newhighs Lmao If this were true, it would be widely reported. This is as real as Dinesh's bullshit.
ElderE · 61-69, M
It really serves no purpose other than to stir things up to label anything as if it's the whole. I'm Republican. Proudly. And I crave truth. From all parties and representatives of. I get little. From either. If only we concentrated on facts over party spin.
Sorry what?
Russia Russia Russia!

Truth is a tricky thing... to be seen as honest/truthful, one must be honest and truthful all the time. Therein we find the problem, both parties exaggerate, omit, lie knowingly misrepresent and so on.

I'm pretty much disgusted with 99% of our politicians, but I do see more good intention and less lies coming from the Democrats.

I do see more outright, purposeful lies coming from the GOP, but that certainly doesn't mean I 100% believe/trust democrats.
@Ontheroad Well said.

I used to vote for both parties, for whoever I thought was best.

Until the Republican Party excises Trump & his ilk (the deniers, etc.), I will not vote for any State or National Republicans.

It's likely to be a while, possibly not in my lifetime.

Read and listen to TRUE news around the country, not what you hear on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. They are pushing their own agenda.
The current administration are the biggest liars this country has ever had and the most incompetent.
PatKirby · M
@Midlifemale

And let's not forget The New York Slimes, The Washington Boast, PMSNBC, NBCCP, and the crack news team out at Pol Pot's Politico.
Midlifemale · 56-60, M
@PatKirby Oh yes, the Times and the Post....more fake and bias news.
If you have ever watched Anderson Cooper do interviews, he constantly tries to get the celebrity or politician to say something bad about the republicans and Donald Trump....THAT'S his agenda...he's one of the worst biased TV reporters. He will purposely change the subject if he candidate is saying something positive about the republicans or Donald Trump...he's such an ass....and LGBT supporter
PatKirby · M
@Midlifemale

Yes Anderson Cooper, the typical man on the street in touch with his thumb on the pulse of the country. Oh and Cooper has an estimated net worth of $50 million who probably doesn't know how much of a gallon of milk is and how eggs have skyrocketed in price. Such an even handed, trusted and unbiased 'journalist' who happens to be a descendant of the Vanderbilts. If we could all have the privilege of such humble beginnings.
Inconsistency is a trademark of politics
@jackpotato excellent example!
jackpotato · 41-45, M
@NerdyPotato No. It isn't!
@jackpotato you can deny it all you want, but both sides say whatever fits their goals regardless of whether reality backs it up.

Hi Holly, welcome to SW.

So, opening with a troll comment, eh?

I wonder how long your lying bullshit will last here.
I don't care - but I do wonder.
Nanoose · 61-69, M
@Budwick Another lie/propaganda by a republican that can easily be proven false. This is not her first post since she joined SW and her other posts were not political.

@Budwick just a child troll

If lying bothers' you so much you must really hate Biden.

nice biased opinion you got there

@DeluxedEdition It's not an opinion, it's a fact.

@DeluxedEdition

Straight and to the point you make here. I recall when I was as naïve as she/it/whatever and willfully ignorant. The world was bliss. Then I grew up.
It's more like nobody particularly focuses on truth when they are trying to spin a narrative. The truth is always in there somewhere, but it's heavily manipulated to such an extent that it is unrecognisable.
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
If you believe this is a trait that only Republicans have, but not Democrats, you are likely indoctrinated by MSM propaganda.
ChipmunkErnie · 70-79, M
Not exactly a major revelation.
No one in politics values the truth
Joeyyy · 26-30, M
I do find a pattern with a lot of them. There's a moral outrage about something untrue or exaggerated and they run with it anyway and call whoever disagrees a lefty or communist
Theyitis · 31-35, M
I agree with the sentiment, but I don’t know that it really does a whole lot of good to say it. They say the same thing about Democrats. As Huxley feared, the truth gets drowned in a sea of irrelevance, and ultimately everyone just believes whatever they want to believe. I have a Facebook friend (that I’ve debated unfriending) that posts almost everyday a rant in which he lays out a good ten or fifteen major things the “liberal mainstream media” supposedly lied about and asks how we can believe them about anything anymore.

The reason Fascism was normalized in America is because everyone was afraid to acknowledge how insane the Republican Party and right-wing media was becoming. We all just tried playing nice and acting like Republicans and Democrats just had some disagreements. We should have condemned the Republicans as Fascists much sooner.

Neither side do you’re just saying what everybody wants to hear then they change their tune tomorrow it’s a chess game that’s all they’re doing

No politician respects the truth, nor are any capable of providing a straight answer.

Democrats are a shame on this planet for putting bell to Joey

they value truth if its in their favour. same for the other side.
So Democrats don't lie 🤔

Everyone lies.
