“The big lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and all who conspire together in the art of lying.” [see below for the author of this quote].

Republicans are practiced Liars. I don’t like to give them credit and say they are masters at lying or that they have perfected the art of lying, as if it is an admirable thing.  The fact is that they simply lie a lot.  They have to because if people knew what they were really up to, they would not exist as a major party today.  Democrats don’t have much reason to lie because they at least have an honest mission that they care about, imperfect as you may feel Democrats are.

Here’s how Republicans do it.

“In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily. And thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than to the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters and would be ashamed to resort to large scale falsehoods. It would never come into their minds to fabricate colossal untruths and they would thus not believe that others could have the impetus to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts that prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds they will still doubt and waver and they will continue to think that there must be some other explanation for the grossly impudent lie.   The big lie always leaves traces behind it even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and all who conspire together in the art of lying.”   –  Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler
