The Dems are using the strategy of the Great Propagandist, Joseph Goebbels, who said: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

The Obama Administration keeps saying, for example, that unemploynent is declining, while failing to add that the labor participation rate is also declining, thereby skewing the unemployment rate.

There are other lies, of course, but the practical reality is that the Obama Administration is the perpetrator of the most and biggest lies the American public has ever confronted.
