President Barack Obama’s entire narrative is a lie, so it’s not surprising that he would lie about his signature legislation from the time of its conception until it was finally exposed a few months ago. His “If you like your healthcare, you can keep it” even earned for him the title of the world’s bigger whopper by PolitiFact.
But the healthcare lie is just one of many told by the undocumented usurper currently occupying the people’s house. Lying, it seems, has become his first nature.
In a letter to Peter Carr, Thomas Jefferson wrote of the dangers of depending upon a lie in tough times:
Nothing is so mistaken as the supposition, that a person is to extricate himself from a difficulty, by intrigue, by chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice. This increases the difficulties ten fold; and those who pursue these methods, get themselves so involved at length, that they can turn no way but their infamy becomes more exposed. It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.
Poll numbers show that most people now believe Obama has reached the point that his lies come without a second thought, and his truths — if they exist — are not believed.
