Truth Counts - Facts Matter
Sanp-Dragons
[snap-drag-uhn] nounCultivated for their "spikes of showy flowers" snap-dragons symbolize the lies and misinformation intentionally perpetuated by the radical right wing of the GOP / Tea Party. 

Access to accurate and truthful information is of 
utmost importance to an effective democracy.  

The last few years have seen an unprecedented spread of out-right lies and highly twisted information.  Unfortunately, many of these lies and misstatements have been left unchecked, and after having been widely circulated, they start to take on a false level of "truth" to those who insist on retelling them.  These unchecked lies are dangerous to the democratic process, and dangerous to the future of our country.

Numerous Internet resources are available to check out the claims and allegations made, one of which is the Pulitzer Prize winning Politifact.com (www.Politifact.com).   The next time someone sends you something that you know to be incorrect, send them a link to the correct information.

The Importance Of Truth

“The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth. ”
H.L. Mencken

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Adolf Hitler


“The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others.”
Fredrick Nietzsche


“A half-truth is the most cowardly of lies.”
Mark Twain
