"'I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. … I have that memory which is seared - seared - in me,' claimed Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, explaining the foundation of his anti-war politics.
"It was a lie.
"'Her breathing became labored and then she breathed her last breath,' explained an emotional Democratic Vice President Al Gore, claiming how his sister’s lung cancer death formed the foundation of his anti-tobacco politics.
"It was a lie.
"'I have vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in my own state when I was a child,' claimed Democratic President Bill Clinton, explaining the foundation of yet more government expansion.
"It was a lie.
"'I will never forget watching my own mother … worrying about whether her insurer would claim her illness was a pre-existing condition,' claimed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, explaining the foundation of Obamacare.
"This too was a lie. [. . .]
[Obamacare may be the biggest lie of all. Promises broken include:]
"You can keep your current doctor: Lie.
"You can keep your current insurance: Lie.
"Hearings will be made public: Lie.
"The deficit will be reduced: Lie.
"Four hundred thousand jobs will be created immediately: Lie.
"There are no death panels: Lie.
"Taxes won’t be increased on families earning less than $250,000 a year: Lie.
"And all of this comes before the first Obamacare waivers exempted the White House’s best friends from the rules that you must follow.
"This degree of dishonesty is not merely taking a mulligan on the back nine or fudging a couple of pounds on your driver’s license. There’s something far more sinister at work here. America is being 'fundamentally transformed' by deception [. . .]
"Health care is, of course, but a single -- albeit critical -- front in the deceptive battle for your liberty. The Earth hasn’t warmed in nearly 15 years, yet global warmists demand you surrender even more energy freedom to them with the 'cap-and-trade' scheme. Government, not Wall Street, spawned the subprime mortgage implosion of our economy, yet regulators demand you surrender even more financial freedom to them with the Dodd-Frank Act. [. . .]
"[I]f you believe him, the president -- who previously claimed that 'raising America’s debt limit is a sign of [presidential] leadership failure,' whose own mother’s death is not too sacred for use in his wanton deception -- has now found a more suitably sympathetic, emotional hostage: your grandma. If the debt ceiling is not increased, if the president is not allowed to continue his wild orgy of spending, then he claims he cannot guarantee Social Security checks will go out on time. That is, if you choose to believe him."
