For quite some time, Republicans have been demonized for living in a "post-factual" world. You can read about it here:
Somehow, no one noticed that Democrats did exactly the same thing during the eight years of the Obama ad-Dajjal presidency. Why not?
And now, even though Trump is criticized almost on an hourly basis for being a liar (or worse), it is clear that the Democrat-inspired "Russia-gate" conspiracy theory is based upon an extensive web of blatant lies which are being treated as gospel truth by the corporate media:
All of us in the US have been living in a delusional world for quite some time. When we were rich and powerful, it didn't seem to matter as much. But now that we are broke and being trampled upon by even tiny nations (e.g., North Korea, Syria), we ought to be minding our Ps and Qs. But we're still acting like the global bully we became after World War II.
Our days as a global power are numbered, and I doubt that number is very large. If you think we're lying now (and you should), wait and see what will happen when the shit hits the fan.
