The Top 10 Lies of the Left

Lie#1: "It is uncertain when human life begins, therefore it's a religious question, not a scientific one."

It is an undisputed biological scientific fact that human life begins at conception. At the very moment of conception, the unique creation is completely human in every one of his or her characteristics totally unique from any other living organism. The new developing baby has the same 46 human chromosomes and DNA he or she will have until death. Even an atheist can acknowledge this fact.

Lie #2: "The Constitution mandates the separation of church and state."

Actually that's correct. The Constitution does mandate a "separation of church and state" -- the former Soviet Union's Constitution (article 52) that is. The First Amendment ensures freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The words "separation of church and state" neither appear in the U.S. Constitution nor the Bill of Rights but rather were used in a private letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists 11 years after ratification of the 1st Amendment to assure them that the federal government would not establish a federally recognized "state" religion. Anti-American/Anti-Christian organizations such as the ACLU and Americans United For the Separation of Church and State have intentionally distorted and perverted the true meaning of the 1st Amendment in a concerted effort to banish the Judeo-Christian underpinnings of our nation while simultaneously imposing their own Secular Humanist theocracy in America.

Lie #3: "The Republican Party is racist."

The Democratic Party has had a long history of racism that is still alive and well today. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 to abolish slavery. Democrats founded the KKK. Democratic Senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia was a Kleagle in the KKK and used the "n-word" twice on "Fox News Sunday" just a few years ago. Slavery, the poll tax, and Jim Crow laws were primarily institutions of the Democratic Party. Eugene "Bull" O'Connor (the poster boy of American racism) was a Democrat. Democrats almost unanimously support raced based "affirmative action" –essentially a form of racism and oppose school vouchers for minorities trapped in under performing government run schools.

Lie#4: "Tax cuts- such as the Reagan and Bush tax cuts- cause budget deficits."

Historical evidence has demonstrated that tax cuts have increased tax revenues to the federal treasury. Three times in the 20th Century (the 20s, 60s, and 80s,) and once in the 21st century (2003 Bush Tax Cuts), taxes were cut across the board. All four cuts stimulated the economy substantially and immediately, resulting in increased tax dollars to the federal treasury not decreases as Democrats predicted. Any "deficits" were primarily the result of government spending not tax cuts.

Lie #5: "Bush exaggerated the case for war in Iraq by lying about WMD."

Almost every nation's intelligence agencies, American, British, and Russian intelligence, U.N. intelligence, and even prominent Democrats shared the Bush Administration's view that Iraq posed a grave and imminent threat to America's security, that sanctions and resolutions were not working, and that force was necessary to disarm and remove Saddam from power.

President Bush's famous 16-word statement in his 2003 State of the Union that Iraq had been seeking uranium ore from Africa was factually correct and confirmed by the Senate Bi-Partisan Intelligence Committee and British Pre-War Intelligence Report. The only proven liar was former ambassador and partisan Democrat Joe Wilson who lied when he claimed that Vice President Cheney had asked him to go to Niger on a "fact finding trip."

Lie #6: " Global warming is the result of human induced carbon emissions."

Carbon Dioxide, the primary greenhouse gas produced by burning fossil fuels is not a toxic pollutant and is vital for life on earth. According to the U.S. National Climate Data Center, the world in 2006 was only .03 degrees Celsius warmer than it was in 2001 within the margin of error and not statistically significant. Although there is a "consensus" that the earth has warmed about a degree Celsius over the last century, there is no similar "consensus" among scientists that said "warming" is human induced. Moreover, average global surface temperatures actually fell during the greatest increase in man made fossil fuels from 1940 to the late 1970s. The "Man Made Global Warming" theory is based on very weak and uncertain science and is essentially a far left political movement that is inherently anti-capitalist and anti-human. Many world renowned scientists such as R. Timothy Patterson has shown that there is a strong correlation between natural solar activity and warming and that "global cooling" is the major threat to the world.

Lie #7: "Children who are raised in same-sex homes fair as well, if not better, than children raised in divorced or step-families."

There is little hard clinical data to suggest "same-sex" family configurations would be a healthy environment for children. The small amount of research available regarding children raised in same-sex couple households reveals that those children are comparable in terms of well being to those in single parent households. But single parent households, though necessary sometimes, are not the ideal -- financially or emotionally.

Supporters of same sex marriage and adoption cite the 2002 American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) Report as proof that same sex couples are equivalent to heterosexual couples with regard to raising children. However, the report concluded that, "Research exploring the diversity of parental relationships among gay and lesbian parents is just beginning," and that "the small and non-representative samples studied and the relatively young age of most of the children suggest some reserve."

Lie #8: "Bush stole the 2000 election."

Every individual recount concluded that Bush was the winner in Florida. Although the left leaning Florida Supreme Court improperly attempted, to aid Gore in illegally recounting votes in select Democrat precincts, their judicial activist ruling was overturned 7-2 by the Supreme Court and nullified. Bush got more votes on election night, following the automatic recount, and after all absentee ballots were counted. Seven media publications including USA Today (hardly a rightward leaning newspaper) sponsored recounts and concluded that, under any proposed standard of methodology, Bush won every recount. It was Al Gore and the liberal media who attempted to "steal" the election by prematurely calling the election for Gore on election night before the polls closed in the heavily GOP populated Florida panhandle and attempting to nullify overseas military votes from being counted.

Lie #9: "Bush is stupid."

George W. Bush scored a 1206 on his SAT. He graduated from Yale and earned a 3.6 GPA at Harvard Business School, flew fighter jets in the Texas Air National Guard during Viet Nam, was a successful business owner, became Governor of Texas twice in landslide victories, and became President of the United States twice, the second time getting more votes than any president in the history of the United States. He also scored higher on military intelligence tests than John Kerry. It was Al Gore who received mostly C's at Harvard, dropped out of Vanderbilt law school and failed out of divinity school. It was Ted Kennedy who was kicked out of Harvard for cheating. By the way, why is it, do you suppose, that Hillary still refuses to release her transcripts from Wellesley and Yale?

Lie#10: The lefties say: "School vouchers unfairly benefit the wealthy."

Voucher programs have almost exclusively benefited poor minority students. The vast majority of voucher programs have almost exclusively enabled minorities in cities such as Washington D.C., Cleveland, and Milwaukee to transfer from under-performing public schools to a superior charter schools where, on average, grades and test scores have risen dramatically at a lower per pupil expenditure.

Liberal-Democratic politicians overwhelmingly choose private and parochial schools for their children but side with the teachers union (the NEA-National Education Association and AFT-American Federation of Teachers) -- who happens to be its largest financial contributors -- in opposing minority parents from having the same opportunity.
