Fight Them With The Truth

In any political battle the truth is always the first casualty. The Nazis knew this. The Republicans know this.  Joseph Goebbels often said “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

So the only defense any of us have against those who would steal our Democracy with deception and mendacity is the truth. So in the next five months and beyond please fight back. Tell the truth. Tell it often. Tell it as often as they lie. Don’t just sit there and take it. Everything is at stake. We are in the mess we are in because too many believed lies with no facts to challenge them.
