Everyone is entitled to free speech –
BUT NOT TO THEIR OWN FACTS. We the People have witnessed with our own eyes and ears speeches and news conferences listening to the very words you speak. Then you deny you’ve said it or that it was taken out of “context” — only to say it again soon afterward. All politicians must recognize that once you are videoed and you’ve said actual words we all hear, you CANNOT unsay them as if they’d never existed. In the real world, it’s called lying and that is the standard to which all of YOU must be held. If you are speaking in an official capacity, you’d best be sure that what you are saying is accurate.

Over the past few weeks I have been looking at my personal Facebook and thinking, “How could such intelligent people be so stupid?” Recently, everyone has been hit with political posts from all sides. Part of me wants to take on trying to explain to my Right wing friends facts about Obama and Romney and why Obama is the clear choice.
Before I do that, I have been looking at their “likes”. You know what always comes up with my extreme Republican friends? Fox News, Michelle Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Tea Party Patriots, etc. Once I see this, I decide not to bother. It explains why intelligent people can make such stupid decisions.
Governor Romney states that he wants to increase military spending. America already spends more on defense than all other major nations combined, so why does Mr. Romney want to spend more? Because the war-makers are ready to make more war. They are seeking a preemptive invasion of Iran now, just as the last Republican administration did in Iraq. He wants to spend your money for Offense.
We invaded Iraq on the pretense of Weapons of Mass Destruction that did not exist. Now the Romney team wants to begin preparing for a preemptive invasion of Iran on the pretense of nuclear weapons that do not exist.
Do you believe that we are looking at Iran because of its non-existent nuclear arms, or because of all the oil they possess?
