    Om Pack of Lies

    Pack of Lies is a collection of 40 arguments, divided into four volumes and released in digital book format for instant access and ease-of-use. Each one of the 40 chapters takes on one of the 40 most destructive conservative lies in America today, and then systematically deconstructs it, contrasts it with reality, and presents effective arguments that shoot it down. In this way, Pack of Lies not only exposes the over-arching conservative deception, but it undermines and obliterates it through painstaking refutation, issue-by-issue, lie-by-big-conservative-lie.

    To make it useful for political junkies and casual readers alike, each chapter of Pack of Lies can stand on its own, allowing the reader to refer any lie, any issue, or any volume that he/she needs immediately, making it a handy reference on a smartphone or tablet for quick, effective rebuttals to common misperceptions. In this volume:

    Volume 1

    LIE #1 THE US IS A CENTER RIGHT NATION

    LIE #2 THE GOP IS THE PARTY OF FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

    LIE #3 CUTTING TAXES INCREASES REVENUE

    LIE #4 HALF OF AMERICANS DON'T PAY TAXES

    LIE #5 YOUR TAX DOLLARS ARE WASTED BY GOVERNMENT

    LIE #6 SOCIAL SECURITY IS ON THE VERGE OF BANKRUPTCY

    LIE #7 CHINA OWNS MOST OF THE U.S. DEBT

    LIE #8 GUN CONTROL LAWS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL

    LIE #9 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS INCREASE CRIME RATE

    LIE #10 DEATH PENALTY DETERS VIOLENT CRIME

    The book can also be read end- to-end to provide depth and context to the strongest arguments and premises against conservative propaganda.

    < p>Today's Conservatism is based on a variety of demonstrable falsehoodslies that the GOP has cowed tens of millions of Americans into believing and accepting. Astonishingly, millions of Americans including some of the most influential people in the political and media establishment have come to accept these lies as conventional wisdom.

    Some are sincere delusions, such as the notion that ';cutting taxes will raise revenues.' Others, however, are cynical ruses used to alarm or confuse the public during elections, like the canard that ';China owns most of America's debt' (when, in fact, it owns a small 7.5%) . Yet many people, even on the Democratic side, accept these premises as truth. And why? Effective Republican propaganda and Ineffective Democratic arguments. But now help is on the way.
