On the Right Side: Attend Tea Parties to find truth

(Continued)

Also erroneous was the statement made about the number of attendees at the thousands of rallies across the country last year. All one has to do is go to the Internet and see for himself the postings that reported the cities where the rallies took place and the respective attendees.

Also, when pictures taken by independent sources, such as those taken at the Washington, D.C., event, scare the liberals, what do they do? They simply say the pictures are doctored. Is that the best that these individuals can come up with when exposed? We conservatives have to start fighting back when these vicious smears are attempted. And that is exactly what good, honest Americans are finally doing.

But this is what the radical left does best "¦ lie. You can be assured that this summer they will attempt to plant some of their own at the upcoming rallies, pretending to be Tea Party members and trying to make the movement look bad. And the media will play right along.

Also, you can be assured that others of the above writer's ilk will claim to have attended such a rally but never really did.

Remember all those people who claimed to have been at the original Woodstock festival? It was later said that if all the people who actually claimed to have attended actually had, the crowds would have been six times larger than actually were there. The same was true about all the people who claimed to have been at the game when Hank Aaron hit his last home run. There would have had to have been seven stadiums to hold these "attendees."

Why do libs do the same thing about the Tea Parties? It seems that they feel the need to lie in order to give their statements credibility. It's beyond me why they do this.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
