America and the entire world may have won the election but they are losing the war.

We should be shocked to the core that so many people think the most dishonest and immoral and incompetent person in history is good for the country.

Trump walked away from the pandemic that has killed hundreds of thousands and instead just lied about it. He inherited the great Obama economy and lied taking credit for it. Virtually all countries have lost respect and trust in America because of our disconnected President. The list goes on and on with dozens of unimaginable scandals.

AND YET HALF OF AMERICA IGNORES ALL THE DISASTERS AND CHEER FOR HIM LIKE THE 900 SUICIDAL JIM JONES FOLLOWERS DID.

It is impossible for us to understand this twisted logic so we go on living in denial and think America has recovered from a temporary mistake. But we should face the reality of what is happening. The only explanation is that half of America is not getting the complete and accurate facts.

NEARLY HALF OF ALL AMERICANS SINCERELY BELIEVE ALL THE FAR-RIGHT LIES AND SPIN AND MISINFORMATION.

The totally absurd beliefs that we hear from the right should not be dismissed as the insignificant ramblings of fools. That must taken seriously as clear evidence that America has a fatal flaw in information.

Two people I know, unknown to each other, expressed the same false Republican talking point at the same time. They had been convinced that the KKK was run by Democrats. I had to explain to them that the conservative Southern Dixiecrats were the polar opposite of Democrats. But I should not have had to do that. Imagine the thousands who actually believe the KKK was a Democrat group when in fact it was a far-right conservative group. America cannot survive all these extreme lies.

Unless something is done to ensure Americans are getting the complete and accurate facts, we will continue to descend into a dysfunctional abyss of chaos and widespread pain and poverty.

THE VERY MINIMUM THAT MUST BE DONE IS CONSTANT EXPLICIT REBUTTAL ACROSS THE BOARD OF ALL THE FAR-RIGHT DECEIT AND LIES AND DISINFORMATION.

Republicans can't stand being forced to be honest. That's why they repealed the Fairness in Media Regulation in 1987. Soon after that, there was an explosion of far-right propaganda pushers including Limbaugh and Fox News. The world has never been the same after that disastrous attack on democracy and on the truth.

This situation is nothing new. Although it has been around for years, the Democrats have refused to do anything about it. It seems as if the Democrats ignore the problem and have the naïve belief that it is all nonsense that voters could not possibly take seriously. So thanks to Democratic complacency we have a very large number of Republicans and even 2 elected Republicans that believe a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against US President Trump. No, that is not a joke. It is real and tells you everything about the enormous information war that Republicans are winning. If the most despised politician in history can nearly get elected, there is no chance Democrats would win against a respectable Republican.

Democrats must either start fighting the information war or just give up and admit they are too weak to engage in conflict. In the struggle between dishonesty and complacency, dishonesty wins every time. America deserves honesty.
