“Some of the time…” has ended.
“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.”
― Abraham Lincoln
Ah, the timeless wisdom of Abe Lincoln! (That does put a new perspective on the Latin phrase: “In vino veritas,” but I digress.) The American people haven’t been given much in the way of real facts, at least not by the legacy media, but they are aware that they’ve been feed lies and nonsense.
They know for instance, that CRT and so-called “Anti-racism” as it’s been taught to them and their kids is just racist claptrap, and are now on the lookout for it in their schools and places of business. They don’t know if “Build Back Better” is better, but they do know that you can’t spend trillions of dollars and not cause inflation. They know that they were lied to about Russian collusion, Kenosha, and Jussie Smollett being the victim of a hate crime. What else have they been lied to about? they wonder.
Now, when they hear the Democrats shrieking about Trump, Republicans, conservatives, and so on, being a threat to democracy, they will be far less willing to accept such statements as anything more than hyperbole. If the recent elections in Virginia and elsewhere are any indication, more and more average Americans are breaking free from the leftist’s spell.
Another quote attributed to Lincoln is this:
“You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
The Democrats are finding this out the hard way. They will fall way short of ‘all the people’, and ‘some of the time’ ended in November of 2021, if not before for a lot of people, and continues to end, day by day for others.
Now, let’s continue on with that great Republican tradition, and have some real facts…and a beer.
