I know, all politicians are economical with the truth when it suits. But the Republicans seem to be out-doing themselves lately with misdirection and just outright lies.

During a townhall call-in last night with our rep there was a survey:
"Push 1 if you want to end the shutdown, leaving our southern border unsecured"
"Push 2 if you want to end the shutdown with our border secured"

False dichotomy, much? What a crock.

Op-ed in today's local paper. Local politician writes: "Stop drug epidemic and build the wall". She conflates illegal drugs with illegal immigration and implies that the wall will solve both... ignorance, willful ignorance or just plain lying?

Unrelated, why did Pelosi think it was a good idea to go on a foreign trip while the government is shut down? That seems like an abdication of responsibility.
