Internet lies muddy up the election process

This election season is becoming even more creative with negative emails designed to nurture hate and promote fear and dissent by proclaiming what can only be called bold-faced lies by proclaiming to have already checked with Snopes!

Being the truthseeker that I am, I go ahead on my own checking -- both Snopes and Factcheck.org. -- to discover the half-truths and outright lies being resurrected, some from as far back as 2006.

We have all witnessed throughout our lives the evil and wasted humanity as wars were waged in the name of religion. Every conflict, every life lost, is a direct result of conflicting ideologies and beliefs, yet, even after all the carnage and cost, we have failed to learn the lesson, that lesson being so elemental that it appears beyond our comprehension!

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"!

Yes -- this includes Muslims, Mormons, Amish, Quakers, Jews, Christians and any other dogma!

Do you get it yet?

No I don't. Does that mean because of what the Muslims do in striking out against innocents because they cannot deal with the guilty? Then we should just level Bengazi. Afterall, we are doing onto them what they did to us. It's is close enough to water for a good Naval Bombardment to be most effective without really endangering American lives. The error in your approach is that it only works when the other guy follows the same philosophy.

Well said, Walt! Islamists have no clue what the "Golden Rule" is.

Marty, I believe you have hit a homerun. Just look at the comments in any newspaper around the world if your writings went there. Religion is just an excuse for people to behave in an inhumane way and use God (whoever is your god) as an common denominator. Religion only serve as a goodness when it restricts our own ignorance and natural humanity. if people would step outside and watch ants moving and working then realize we are so trivial like the ant in shaping the true outcomes. As a christian I have long since realized that God doesn't need our hatred and ignorance to prove or defend Him.

i get that you just sent in 2 writings and got them published as 1. what's the difference in internet lies and ones told by attack ads? even king obumma has said that some of the ads against romeny went over the line and weren't totally true. and you know the founders of snopes are bleeding heart liberals like yourself, right? know how i know???? i checked it on snopes, so it must be true!
