Republicans have found they can flat out lie to voters. They make up stories of Swift Boating, President Obama’s religion and place of birth, and repeatedly say Democrats are unpatriotic, socialist, communists, and un-Christian. Democrats would never call Republicans communists, but we will remind them it was Lenin who said, “Tell a lie often enough, it becomes the Truth.”

It is time we stand up and call a lie a lie. We know Republicans will just accuse us of lying, too, but there is a huge difference. Both sides are salesman for their causes, and occasional salesmen push the boundaries. A salesman once said, “I never lie, but I color up the truth a lot.” On occasion, all politicians “color up the truth”.

Too many Republican politicians aren’t just salesmen; they’re con men. They deliberately lie to the American people to deceive them to vote for policies which defraud America.

There is no more effective influence on potential voters than you. Remember, truth is the Democrats’ best ally. The following talking points will enlighten and encourage you to spread the truth.
