Politics = Lies

I dislike dishonesty, particularly when it is used to harm people who aren’t doing anything to deserve the harm. This is why I dislike politics– beyond the institutional theft and aggression, that is.

I dislike the lies the political Left tells against the political Right.

I dislike the lies the political Right tells against the political Left.

Not because either of those statist sides is innocent, but because it seems like liberty is always caught in the middle.

The political Left lies and says that respecting the right of a business owner to choose to not bake a cake is hate which violates the rights of someone to buy a cake from someone who doesn’t want to bake one for them. They blame the political Right for this outrage.

The political Right lies and says that anyone breaking a counterfeit “law” they agree with, such as “immigration laws” is a bad guy by definition. They blame the political Left for encouraging this criminality.

The political Left lies and says that if you don’t want to ban guns you hate children and don’t care if they die.

The political Right lies and says if you don’t support the War on Drugs you want everyone to be addicted and on welfare.

The political Left lies and says that socialism isn’t suicide.

The political Right lies and says cops are good guys.

The political Left lies about what Trump says and does in a way to rile up their side, and the political Right lies about what Trump says and does in a way to rile up their side.

Most of all, I dislike the lies the political Left and the political Right tell against those of us who don’t buy into their lies.

Lies to the Left and lies to the Right. And I’m not on their spectrum at all.
