‘People who lie to you consider you not worthy of the truth’, a statement echoed by the famous 19th century American writer Mark Twain who himself stated to “Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.” Even Christian principles warn the faithful those who are practicing ‘liars will not inherit the kingdom of God’. If the prospect of being barred from Heaven doesn’t faze them, it’s not be a mistake to say most Republicans only pretend to be Christian. It is thus no surprise GOP Leaders have always resorted to lying in their interactions with their constituents.
For four years, their idol Trump had lied to them at every turn. (Trump is someone who is incapable of telling the truth, even if that would save his life. He just can’t) His followers (or worshippers), the Republican constituents, stick with him for the whole duration of his one-term presidency. There is no point trying to sugarcoat the debate regarding the worth of the Republican constituents. Even their leaders recognize they are not worth the truth, a situation which helps to explain the reasons Republican leaders have long divorced with the truth, and instead resorted to lies and conspiracy theories as means of interactions with their supporters, which brings me to the next aspect of this debate, how Republican leaders have mastered the art of deception and used that to lure the naïve and the gullible Republican constituents into keeping them in office.
