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 didn’t really lie; he oversold the 
program. He should have been more precise, but we 
can’t say he actually lied, certainly not on 
purpose. President Obama would never intentionally lie to the American people.

Now we’re being told that it’s 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 don’t 
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 it’s not just in politics.

Al Gore pushed Global Warming until Global 
Warming couldn’t 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 it’s 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 

Don’t ever think that in a debate with a liberal 
that putting the facts on the table is going to 
change a liberal lie. There’s too much to lose 
when a liberal has to admit he’s 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.
