The Liberal Lie, The Conservative Truth

Exposing the Liberal Lie through current events and history. “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.” ****** "We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free." RONALD REAGAN

HISTORICAL QUOTE OF THE WEEK - "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Friday, March 06, 2009


If Ronald Reagan were still alive today I believe we would here his famous line from the Carter debate when then candidate Reagan in highlighting Carter's exaggerations looked at Carter and said, "there you go again." Only this time the witty remark would be directed toward Barack Obama.

"There he goes again." Using fear and exaggerated figures to scare Americans into buying into his agenda and and no one in the media calls him on it to his face. During remarks made at the start of his, Health Care Conference, Obama stated without blinking an eye that due to health care costs someone in The United States goes bankrupt every 30 seconds.

A fellow blogger at Judging Truth ran the numbers on this fear tactic by the ever fear mongering Barack Obama. With one health care related bankruptcy, according to the messiah, every 30 seconds the total would be 1, 051, 200 per year. The total number of bankruptcies in 2008 were 1, 086, 130. Which equates to 98. 8 % of all US bankruptcies, according to Obama's figures, being caused by health care related expenses.

The actual percentage of bankruptcies that were related to health care expenses was actually around 5%, which totals roughly 54, 300 filings. Breaking it down further this number equals to 0.026th of a bankruptcy every 30 seconds. A far cry from the figures given by the great fear mongerer.

But why should pushing his health care dollars be any different from the trillions of new and excessive spending that he has already pushed through. In every case he has a sob story or a catastrophe story, or a story with twisted and/or extremely exaggerated figures designed to scare the living daylights out of everyone. Then he uses this fear to get his way and spend, spend , spend.

At a time when one of the primary duties of any President is to promote confidence and quell fear so that Americans and especially all segments of the economy can get a little boost, Obama is using fear tactics and Armageddon scenarios to make his case. The result is no confidence in the economy nor his agenda, (not that the agenda promotes any confidence), and every financial entity is afraid to make any type of move because the President has warned of catastrophic results if his ideas are not quickly implemented.

Even his mentor Franklin Roosevelt once stated that, "we have nothing to fear but fear itself." Obama believes that the more fear he creates the better he can get his way and his agenda without much opposition. At every opportunity he uses fear. Nearly every sound bite taken from Obama's speeches or statements contain fear scenarios or speak of catastrophe.

And of course only he has the solution and anyone who disagrees with that solution is not a patriot or anti-American or wanting the country to fail. Disagreeing with a President DOES NOT mean that we want the country to fail, it means that we do not believe that WHAT that President is doing is good for the country.

When the Founders included Freedom of Speech in the Bill of Rights their true intent was not to allow disgusting displays that are claimed to be art. But rather the freedom to dissent with our government without fear of recrimination. To disagree with any aspect of government including those elected without fear of arrest or being placed on a watch list.

Creating fear is not and will not promote an atmosphere for recovery. Creating fear cannot turn a bad situation into a better one. Creating fear succeeds in only adding to adversity. Promoting quick and unstudied reactions or , "solutions." Creating fear grows the problem and never eases any situation. Creating fear causes panic. Which is precisely why I believe that Obama creates fear. Keeping a panic mode that forces acceptance of his American take over and socialist agenda.

There are a couple of fallacies in your logic that I'll point out.

1. According to a recent Harvard study, half of all bankruptcy filings are due to medical/healthcare costs.

I don't know where you get 5%, but I'd love to see your citation. Just post a link to your source so we can see it.

2. I never heard, nor can I find any posting of Obama's comments that said what you claim he said.

However, if we assume that 500,000 bankruptcy filings were medical related, that means that more than 1 million folks were affected because of this (filers, plus their dependents). That means there would be 1 million folks affected (actually it would be higher). If you do the math, that means every 30 seconds an American is forced into bankruptcy.

Ken, I don't really understand why you think he is lying, when the numbers add up so easily. If he said, "due to health care costs someone in the U.S. goes bankrupt every 30 seconds." The data and stats show that to be perfectly accurate.

I just posted a blog yesterday about scare tactics. It makes me sick. Playing on fear and emotions to get what you want is shameful. GRRRRR!

Rob, here's a link which supports Ken's claim: The Truth about Medical Bankruptcies All you had to do was Google it.

Ken, the media screamed bloody murder about President Bush's so-called fear-mongering. Gee... I wonder why they aren't screaming about Obama's? This truly stinks!

Gayle, are you actually being serious? You are citing a working paper. Do you know what an academic working paper is?

Working papers are not papers that are in peer-reviewed, scientific journals.

The "study" is unpublished conjecture until it can stand up to academic review and actually become published. I can almost guarantee that the author tried to publish it but it was rejected (probably multiple times from multiple journals), so the author just labeled it a "working paper."

I cited a published, peer-reviewed article in a leading journal and you throw out a working paper? Let's get real. Just because someone posted something on the Internet doesn't make it fact.

Rob, you can go here to learn about the author of the article I linked to. He's not exactly just anyone posting something on the internet. He's also published many books. Of course I fully expect you to say it doesn't matter.

Gayle, I think you are a little confused. You are linking to a guy at the Cato Institute who posted a blog entry citing the unpublished working paper by Dr. Ning Zhu.

Tanner is not the author of the study. The fact remains that you are citing a study that is unpublished (meaning it has not been peer-reviewed and it has not met basic standards of scientific acceptability).

If you want to say that Dr. Zhu is an academic, I will agree with you, but the fact remains that the paper you are citing (and Tanner is citing) remains unsupported conjecture.
