Evidence that Facts Don't Matter to Liberals

Have you noticed how the debate over ObamaCare
has shifted? First, it was the lie that Obama
told about keeping our insurance policies and
doctors. This lie was told to get ObamaCare
passed. It was admitted to be a lie by the media at first.
Then liberals figured out that accusing the
President of lying was not a good thing for their
careers. So he didnt really lie; he oversold the
program. He should have been more precise, but we
cant say he actually lied, certainly not on
purpose. President Obama would never intentionally lie to the American people.
Now were being told that its a good thing that
you and I may lose our original policies because
what the government is forcing us to do even
though it costs more and may be what we dont
want is really a better insurance policy.
This new narrative is designed to cover up the
falsehood of the first and second narratives.
This is the way liberals work, and its not just in politics.
Al Gore pushed Global Warming until Global
Warming couldnt be supported empirically, so the
designation shifted to Climate Change. Any
change in weather patterns can now be attributed
to human action. Anything we do can now be said
to contribute to Climate Change even breathing and cow burping.
Even with all the disputed empirical evidence,
President Obama is moving forward:
"President Obama issued an executive order Friday
directing a government-wide effort to boost
preparation in states and local communities for the impact of global warming."
He has to issue an illegal and unconstitutional
Executive Order because he can't get the votes. Ideology trumps the facts.
Conservatives live under the false impression
that objective truth matters. If you just lay out
the facts, people will ascent to the facts and
change their views. This is not how the world
works, and its not the way people think,
especially those who have something to gain from holding on to falsehoods.
Sylvester Petro was a long-time student of the
way liberals think and act. He wrote the
following in his book The Kingsport Strike:
Beware of the man who tells you that he will
explain fully explain any complex human
action or event by resort[ing] to coldly
objective, empirically verifiable,
statistical data. He is deceiving himself, and
perhaps seeking to deceive you. For in the first
place we do not all see the same event in exactly
the same way, let alone interpret it the same way
not even events which do not involve the
complicating factor of human
Dont ever think that in a debate with a liberal
that putting the facts on the table is going to
change a liberal lie. Theres too much to lose
when a liberal has to admit hes been wrong about
the facts. Entire political programs are on the line.
Certainly some people change after being
confronted with the facts. Ronald Reagan is a good example.
But for the most part, facts only get in the way
of paradigm-laden worldviews. Even after decades
of failed social policies where multiple
trillions of dollars have been spent, liberals
continue to push these and additional programs.
Cuba is an object lesson in failed economic
principles, but these failures have not stopped
liberals from praising the island nation even
though Castro has laws to prevent freedom of
speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of movement,
and freedom of commerce. But Cuba has universal
healthcare. I was watching a documentary on Cuba
and its description of the objective squalor and
unsanitary conditions in parts of the island when
the narrator said, "It sure is a good thing the
Cuba has a national healthcare system."
Liberals don't want to be be confused by the
facts because facts are not necessary when
implementing liberal policies and programs.
