As you may have heard, Senate Minority leader Harry Reid who recently announced he will not seek reelection gave an interview to CNN in which he was asked about his bold face lie on the Senate floor that Romney didn’t pay his taxes. In answer he smirked and said “Romney didn’t win, did he.”

And that is it in a nutshell. Truth doesn’t matter. Winning matters. Only winning matters.

This is where we are now. The highest ranking Democrat in Congress looks at the camera with his one good eye and says, “Sure I lied. What are you going to do about it?” And. Nobody. Cares. This is hardly a story. We don’t even demand that our lying politicians lie about their lying anymore.

Harry Reid is devilishly defiant in admitting to his lie with the basest of justifications. The end justifies any means. And. Nobody. Cares.

People consider me pessimistic because I am convinced that the country as we knew it is gone and is likely gone forever.

I hope that one day this great land will have an honorable, moral, and limited government to serve its honorable and moral people. But an honorable and moral people is the prerequisite and that is not us anymore. We have the government we deserve, a smirking immoral lying government that dares you to do something about it.  Instead, let’s go tar and feather some Christian bakers in Indiana.
