Political Lies: Thwarted Truths and Unbidden Consequences.
Politics as Usual
Thwarted Truths and Unbidden Consequences
The thwarted truths:
The lies we are told every single day lead to unseen consequences.
They promote distrust, intolerance and divide the communities we live in.
This is probably by the deliberate design of the political bickering and back stabbing, but it serves no purpose to us, as the American people.
This will be my most controversial article to date. It is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. It is a report on the attempt, by a few, to use humanity as "green manure" for their personal, short term satisfaction, blanketed by their total unawareness of the realities of human evolution, or even their total indifference toward it, and of its future consequences.
Firstly, let me say, if you continue to read, you must leave your preconceived ideas, notions, and "learned" beliefs behind, at this point, in this article, and in your life in general.
Otherwise, you might find it a bit offensive.
There are NO "evil words".
Naming someone, or something, as evil is a manifestation of the human mind, learned, to avoid seeing, knowing or facing the truths of reality itself.
"Evolution" is a process of moving forward. It is a process in which the whole universe is a progression of interrelated phenomena. Nothing more - nothing less.
"Speculation" (pondering) can be fun and enjoyable, or a frightening experience, depending on how gullible the recipients are, who hear someone else's thoughts or beliefs said aloud.
"Assumption" is a fact, or statement (as a proposition, axiom, postulate, parable, or notion) taken for granted. Accepting the ideas of another person's words as truth because we are conditioned into believing that, if a person is an "authority" on a particular subject, then what they say "must be true".
"Arrogance" is exaggerated, or disposed to exaggerate, one's own worth or importance in an overbearing manner. When man [men] or woman [women] possess or promote, their own self importance or self worth , they will usually have an "authoritative" figure to 'arrogate' their beliefs. This means having someone else claim that what they ascribe to is fact, for some kind of recompense. If you pay some people enough in money or renown, they will attest to anything with, or without, proof of validity. We tend to accept what they say because they are "more knowledgeable" than we are in their field of expertise.
For every action there is a reaction
For every Action, there is a Reaction
Now we can put these concepts into some kind of perspective - that 'most' people will be able to comprehend.
For anyone to assert, or assume, that what they say, preach, or teach, is all that there is, is cheating their pupils, students, audiences, or their clergy, out of the actual beauty of truth itself.
Some truths may be ugly by their very nature, but the reality of truth is always a wondrous and beautiful thing to behold. The truth will always set you free in every way.
What the arrogance of man has accomplished so far:
You will be thinking that there is NO beauty in these truths. But, the beauty lies in the fact that once truth is accepted, no matter how ugly it may be, it can be changed. Simply accepting the ugliness of truth must not be an option.
In my article "Should we all stop drinking cow's milk?", i spoke about the evolution of our genetic disposition based on thousands of years of symbiotic relationship between man and cow's milk and the possible effects of its genetic manipulation from man's use of this genetically altered product.
Today this problem has escalated exponentially as corporate greed has done, far beyond the scope of just cow's milk. It is fast becoming the norm for all food production. It has spread from cow's milk, to meat production, to vegetables, and now all the oceans' food supply is threatened without any concern or constraints by an uncaring government.
Greed truly is God in this world.
Whether we evolved from the sea, or we were 'created' from nothingness, the effects from then to now are the same. As a species that requires sustenance to survive, we have developed this symbiotic relationship between our bodies and the foods we ingest. The old adage: "you are what your eat" is profoundly true in all aspects of its interpretations.
For "man" to presume to know more than nature itself, is the severest of arrogance and pride. With their over zealousness to make greater profits, man as altered the genetic makeup of the foods we eat without any regard to the genetic consequences of their actions.
Since the beginning of the introduction of genetically altered foods, there have been corresponding "changes" in the genetic coding sequences from those altered foods we ingest and our "natural" evolutionary processes.
This has caused degrees of, in yet unknown proportions, "genetic shifting", leading to the unforeseen consequences of, either, or both, accelerated or arrested, development. 'Normal' human growth and development for thousands of years has been solely dependent on what we ingest.
The unbidden consequences
My speculative suggestion is that those "genetic shifts" or "genetic drifting" , (caused by the genetic manipulators), have in some cases accelerated (example:
- development of cancer) or arrested natural growth patterns (example: pedophilia - genetically 'stuck' in a prepubescent state of development)
- and or, mutant development (example: increased incidents of autism, diabetes,
- and other, yet unknown, new diseases and disorders).
Only time will tell the full extent of these paradoxical genetic shifting processes.
And in our continued ignorant state of religious dogmatism, we will blame it all on the devil, as usual.
When in true realism, the evil lies in that base religious dogmatism itself and overshadows truth by fear and guilt for even considering this possibility.
Man has made many of his own laws and punishments based on non-truths.
The consequences of these laws only led to more crime and greater punishments.
a society can not make a law and punishment based on flawed logic, greed, or manipulation for self gain.
We can no longer hide the truths behind our own masks of ignorance and mistaken beliefs.
For every action, there is a reaction.
This is a truism with consequences based on those mistaken beliefs, that are based on our flawed religious teachings. Will this madness ever end?
If you choose to ask anyone who is more knowledgeable than you, or i, on these matters, do not ask them if what i am saying is true.
They will only answer based on what their own personal perceptions of what they believe to be truth.
So, ask instead:
Is what i say here possible?
The only logical, rational and honest answer is "yes - anything is possible."
Like it, or not, we can not make laws under the veiled hope that these laws, and their subsequent punishments, will somehow miraculously change what man has unwittingly done to himself.
Other choices we have as humanity?
Kill off everything that does not conform to past beliefs,
or embrace the truth and live with it in peace and harmony,
with the knowledge that it is justly what "man" has done to "humanity"
and the 'evil' lies only within that knowledge, and doing nothing about it.

Thwarted (twisted) truths and their dire consequences
Excerpts courtesy of moveon.org
The following is an excerpt from moveon.org. It is another example of the thwarted lies politicians tell without any conscience, simply for their own personal gains:
Here is a list of five lies that Paul Ryan told when he gave his speech at the Republican National Convention. Every single news outlet has reported/commented on these lies. And yet, they persist in telling them as truth. They say that if a lie is told often enough even the liar believes it to be truth.
1. Lie: President Obama is the "greatest threat" to Medicare.
Truth: Obama didn't make any cuts to Medicare benefits; he made cuts to provider reimbursements, to improve cost efficiency and extend the fiscal security of Medicare by eight years. According to the Medicare actuary, "[Obama's] Affordable Care Act makes important changes to the Medicare program and substantially improves its financial outlook."1
But Ryan actually does want to cut benefits. He proposed dismantling Medicare and replacing it with a voucher system, leaving millions of seniors to come up with more money to pay for care out of pocket.2,3
2. Lie: President Obama didn't save a General Motors plant in Wisconsin.
Truth: First, Obama wasn't even in office when the GM plant closed. Second, Obama never made a promise to save it.4
3. Lie: President Obama ignored recommendations of a bipartisan debt commission.
Truth: Paul Ryan actually sat on that commission. And he led Republicans in voting down the commission's own recommendation. So the commission never gave a report to Obama, because Ryan himself voted to kill the report before it could.5
4. Lie: President Obama is responsible for the downgrading of the U.S. Credit Rating
Truth: House Republicans, including Paul Ryan, held the full faith and credit of the United States hostage to try to ransom it for trillions of dollars in cuts to social programs without increasing taxes on the wealthy one dime. Standard & Poors said specifically, "We have changed our assumption on [revenue] because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues." That's why our nation's credit rating was downgraded.6,7
5. Lie: Ryan wants to protect the "weak."
Truth: Ryan's biggest feat in his political career was proposing a budget with dramatic cuts to programs benefiting the poor. He'd cut Medicaid by one third, take away health care insurance from 30 million Americans, and cut Pell Grants for 1 million students. All so that he could give more tax breaks to the rich.8
