Liberals keep thinking that rationality and common sense will win the day. Unfortunately Spurgeon's quote is true:

"A lie travels round the world while Truth is putting on her boots"

6. Absolutely---GOP demands and gets to be on TV daily. Democrats

7. Liberals don't understand a lot of things about politics.
