The Republicans are about to lose the Presidential election because they lie about simple facts, and they are FINALLY being called on it. The #2 guy has already earned the title of "Lyin' Ryan", and everybody knows that Mitt can't keep an answer straight because he's given every possible anywhere to any possible question.

Perhaps Republicans will wake up and start telling the truth and begin working for America, rather than for their own grubby powermeisters. But I think I hope for too much.
