The Insidious Truth-Lie

09/12/2009

The entire healthcare debate is a vibrant example of how truth-lies operate, a series of facts which are technically true but which play out false when reality takes over. It’s a favorite political game and Americans need to understand it because the temptation for politicians to use it will increase as the economy deteriorates. Dr. Merrill Matthews. Ph.D., and president Tom Giovanetti of the Institute for Policy Innovation (www.ipi.org) join John to see how the truth-lie dynamic plays out in politics.

Have you noticed that despite all the talk about federal budget issues, we almost never hear the concept of slashing government? This is true even as much tax money squandered by congress supports activities we don’t approve. David Smith is professor of American history at Baylor University and author of a book entitled, “Money for Art.”

John’s boralogue examines the history of socialist ideas in American education and politics, showing how the thinking of Americans was changed in a 50-year period. Special focus is placed on how socialism of the left and the right are both the same but offer voters a false dichotomy in thinking they’re opposites.
