May 4, 2015: A caller to Thom Hartmann's program asks if the GOP's John Boehner knows he's lying during his recent appearance on Meet the Press. Thom replies and explains how the Republican Party went insane with the Reagan presidency and how their cognitive dissonance (hating the government vs wanting to control the government) made space for sociopaths to step in who don't mind lying especially since they don't view others as human beings.
If you feel empathy for other people and support America's social safety net programs, depend on them, or know someone who does you may wish to check out this video! And please consider such information carefully before voting for your next sociopath politician. It seems voters' old feeling of deciding between the "lesser of two evils" will only deepen with 2016 candidates. Yes, Senator Bernie Sanders will put important topics into the debate mix yet who would cooperate with him and his progressive policies if by a magical landslide he became president?
So when it comes to lying politicians, personally I'd call such people psychotically divorced from reality which makes it easy for anti-government, empathy-challenged politicians to ignore how their criminal actions affect the every day reality of the American people. And this includes corporate CEOs, Wall Street gentry, and international bankers...basically, the global crime syndicate and all those who support and enable its tentacles to oppress and disenfranchise--not that some of its members aren't intimidated with threats and blackmailed into doing its bidding with (the alleged fantasy of) "offers they can't refuse." The rest are simply bribed with powerful positions, fame, and fortune and ordered to follow 'the script'. Integrity comes cheap in politics.

In September 2010 I posted a few notes on the natal planets and aspects of John Boehner, a Moon-Neptune kind of boo-hooer. Perhaps the alcohol helps him numb his knowledge of the truth behind his lies.
