    The democrats are bold liars (it’s a tactic w/o any moral thoughts) …small lies by omissions & such are a given BUT WeThePeople are now beaten into a rage by the new level of DAILY in ya face lies…
    “the border is secure”
    “we are not in a recession”
    “we have a strong economy”
    “overseas caused gas hikes”
    “we r looking at every option”
    (we r NOT all 7 years old!!)
    On top of this we get the constant fear/guilt trips along with ugly divisive social engineering!
