I Know You’re Lying because Your Lips are Moving

I know you’re lying, because your lips are moving…Meghan Trainor

Meghan is talking about her lying, cheating boyfriend when she sings that zippy little tune.

But, I think of someone else.

Jonathan Gruber is testifying before congress about calling the American people stupid.  He is apologizing profusely for saying that our stupidity is the only way that Obamacare could pass.

But, I don’t think that he is sorry for saying it (over and over again, all over the country, all caught on tape).  My guess is he is only sorry that he got caught.

I believe that because I have had liberals sit in my home and condescend to explain to me why they actually believe that conservatives (generally) and Christians (specifically) are too dumb to vote.  The reason (they say) is that conservative Christians only believe what they have been taught.

Hmmmm.  So, using that argument, no conservative Christian could take those principles out into the world, use them, test them, find that they work, then come to embrace those principles and cherish them as their own.

Interesting argument, but nothing could be farther from the truth.

Actually, liberalism is taught.  Why do you think it is necessary for liberals to indoctrinate children from pre-school straight through college about liberal philosophy?

Why is sociology required in college, but capitalism isn’t?

Liberals have to brainwash people into being liberals so that they believe in liberal principles despite all the odds.  Why?

Because when you take liberal principles out into the world and test them, they all fail.

Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried.  Communism always fails.  Government-run anything?  It fails or is hopelessly in the process of failing.

Liberals lie, they admit it.  They even say the reason that they lie – people are too stupid to know that they are lying.  It is the only way that they can shove their progressive liberal agenda down our throats.

Who do you think of when you hear that song?
