The Lies Conservatives Told Us
and we were stupid enough to believe:
Hale 'Bondad' Stewart wrote for the Huffington Post some months ago:
I think it's time to chime in on the debate [about Reagan's 'fiscally conservative' policies] because the underlying facts -- those pesky things -- aren't very flattering to Reagan. In fact, the facts -- again, those pesky annoying things -- indicate that Reagan was a complete and total fiscal disaster.

So, the Conservatives accuse the Liberals of a 'tax and spend' mentality and put themselves forward as fiscally responsible.

If we look at the facts, however, they tell a shockingly different story.

There was nothing good or fiscally responsible about Reagan. His policies and war mongering scare the hell out of me.
He set the stage for the chief idiot who wants to surpass Reagan's damage and is!

hey, AAP--
I think Reagan started the Big Lie: calling for 'smaller government' while engorging it -- and calling dems tax-and- spenders.

no wonder the Rethugs have thought we would just let them lie and lie and get away with it indefinitely.
after all, we've done exactly that for 30 years, now.

and here is where it has led us.
so, what will it take for us to wake up?

Sadly there are those that will never wake up as they believe the lies like at least one of my sons fighting for these lies.
There are also as you know many benefiting from them and do not care about the country or the world only seeing their gravy train continue.
Those of us that have been awake from the get go have argada (indigestion?)and us and those that are waking up now do not matter. You relax I think a lot of you but this mess is just beginning.
Bush's friggen lies I thought about them all night then first thing this morning I hear the lying idiot say those that died set the foundation for peace for generations to come.
That's war for generations to come not peace and it isn't their fault they believed his lies. Then what about the dead and soon to die Iraqi's? Peace Hon!

hey, AAP--
sadly, war never HAS brought about peace -- and never will.
that ought to be self-evident but every generation gets fed the same line and has to learn the truth all over again.
