A Thousand Lies

A word from he who put down the lies…

These are a few of the lies we must believe if America’s political system, culture and world dominance is to endure. Our faith in them insures we never question who we are, how we live or the world we have made. They are essential. We can’t live as we do without them.

This list is for all Americans—progressive, conservative, moderate or radical. It is guaranteed to offend everyone.

The list is in neither ordered nor referenced. It is not its purpose to convince anyone of anything. Those who wish to do research may find abundant resources on the web.

The list is incomplete as any list compiled by one writer must be. I invite you to add your own lies as you find them. There is never a dearth.

And now, the lies…
