A talking point among Liberals is how Conservatives distort the truth, but in arguing with a Conservative Facebook friend, I've discovered how overzealous liberal pundits and public relations people distort things by omissions, exaggerations, false statistics and the like, just as the Neocons do. An example of this is a friend of mine told me he thought Social Security was a "Ponzi Scheme" or at least something like it. This sounded absurd to me and I'd heard before this was just a Republican talking point, so I went and Googled it and found one of the websites agreed it was and the other two I Googled didn't. In one of them, the headline of the article said that Rick Perry had said it was a Ponzi scheme, so my immediate thought was, "If Rick Perry thinks it's a Ponzi scheme, then it isn't." I printed it up the article about Perry and gave it to my friend. I hadn't really read the article carefully enough, but in the article, it was pointed out that although Social Security could not technically be called a Ponzi Scheme, it was similar. Rick Perry maybe had picked up some true information, but I would guess his motives were less than noble, most likely to make the case for getting rid of Social Security or privatizing it.
