——Political lies should be criminally prosecutable.—

that may seem like a good idea at first blush, but it
may not be so good.

We have a lot of dangerous minds in our government
right now.

For example those who are trying to dismantle the
healthcare reform.

I’ve heard all about how doctors and medical
professionals are complaining that it will destroy
the medical system for a couple years now.

However in those two long years I have spoken to over
100 medical professionals and I have only heard one
out of that hundred profess anything even remotely
negative about any changes that have been made
because of healthcare reform.

The lies need to stop. A little knowledge about an
issue is a dangerous thing. A single lie is beyond
dangerous if the individual spreading the lie knows
that the majority of people hearing that lie will
just go with the flow and never learn for themselves
that the statement was a lie…nor will they believe
others who afterward who claim it is a lie and even
offer proof.

Political lies should be criminally prosecutable.
