The argument here is not to suggest Democrat Leaders are perfect; this is not an argument their policies or legislations are best or even good. We surmise that Democrat Leaders do not try to deceive their constituents, not that they have not, but they don’t set out to do so; whatever they say they stand for, that’s what they propose in legislations, in crafting policies.
GOP leaders on the other hand start out lying to their constituents, distorting the facts; they rely exclusively on the naiveness and the gullibility of the Republican constituents to advance their personal and selfish agendas. Their main strategy is to coach their supporters into resenting Democrats or at the very least into believing Democrats’ agendas are not good for the country. GOP Leaders have long resorted to lying to their constituents as their principal method of governing. To most GOP Leaders, Republican constituents are not worth telling the truth.
GOP leaders have greatly succeeded in that aspect. In 2016, a number of Republican constituents promoted the slogan “I’d rather be a Russian than a Democrat” leading up to Donald Trump being elected as the 45th president of the United States. The details of his involvement with Russia are still being fleshed out, but we are all aware at this point there was indeed collaboration between the Trump’ camp and Russia which worked to guarantee his win in the 2016 presidential elections.
