Fighting Lies and Ignorance to Keep the Democratic Process Democratic

The health care crisis and how to solve it has become one of the defining issues of our time.  There is much debate over the right course of action.  The debate should be principled and intelligent, but we have come to a point in American politics where lying or being stupid or both have become a perfectly acceptable way to debate an issue.

If one assumes that Romney, Ryan, Rand Paul, Cruz, Rubio, Bachmann, Palin, Rick Scott, Pam Bondi, and many other outspoken opponents of Obamacare are intelligent people (an assumption that may be a stretch in some cases), then they must be liars. Other than their being ignorant beyond comprehension (which could be the case for some of the named individuals), lying is the only explanation for what they have been saying about Obamacare.

Honest, intelligent people make sure of their facts before making public statements about this complicated, important legislation.

An open and honest debate, where ideas are discussed and criticized and improved upon, is what is needed desperately in this country.  It is the way things are supposed to be done in America.

Americans of good intentions must be educated to fight the campaign of misinformation that has been waged against the President’s plan for health care reform.

Obamacare Facts is one place to get a detailed and unbiased description of what the law does and doesn’t do.  Go there, learn, so that, regardless of your position, you will know what’s true and what’s false and who is lying and who is telling the truth.  Perhaps, you can even help educate those whose ignorance is keeping them in the dark.
